Notes: Internet hookups in room for small fee (they supply the cable if you need it). The challenge when staying by the station is that you're by the station: it's hard to find good food, and when you've been out all day sightseeing and you return home tired but need some dinner, you might not want to trek back into town to find a cute little trattoria. But, you also don't want the equivalent of diner/tourist food when you're in one of the food meccas of the world. So, don't eat at the restaurant across the street -- "Salvatore's" -- it's nasty and the service was dismal. Instead, go diagonally across the street on the next block to Monte Arci -- their pasta was good, the service was cheerful, and there were little touches that make a difference -- they served the bill on top of a few rose petals, with some biscotti, for instance. Or, try La Familgia -- about 3-4 blocks away, perpendicular to Castelfidardo and towards town.
As for the hotel, I agree with the other reviews: very clean, well-positioned in terms of convenience to touring around, and the staff is pleasant -- especially the breakfast staff. I would probably stay in a different neighborhood with more personality next time when I don't need to be running from the Coliseum to the Forum to Piazza di Spagna, but this hotel gives you access to all the major action. By the way, the H bus from Termini goes up Via Nazionale to Trastevere.
