Staff were friendly & helpful. Breakfast was a standard buffet service with plenty to fill you up for the day.
The hotel had character & wasn't a bland box with uninspiring rooms.
The air-conditioning was excellent (ie not noisy & easy to control) & necessary as the temperatures were around 38 degrees for the week we were there.
After reading some reviews I was a little apprehensive, but I have to say our stay was excellent. The hotel was clean, the breakfast was ideal and the staff were very friendly.
The only downside, and this is nothing against the hotel, is it's location. a good 15 minute walk to a main area. Eventually we decided to use taxi's into town, it was however nearly 40 degrees and the kids were moaning :)
Overall, nothing to complain about and would certainly stay again in the fute.
One last thing, superb restaurant just 5 mins walk away Osteria del Cavaliere. http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g187791-d2298454-Reviews-Osteria_del_Cavaliere-Rome_Lazio.html

The staff were very pleasant. Nice breakfast buffet. The only problem, the bed was too hard on my back. I am not sure if all beds are like that, or only the one on my room, but overall, the stay was very nice.
"Helpful staff on reception, disappointing breakfas"
Found the people on reception really helpful. Advised on travel, restaurants and printed off boarding passes. Room very clean. Found it quite noisy and would have appreciated mini bar so I could keep water cool and not have to keep paying for room service. Tube was off after nine so either took taxi or bus; when we took the bus we all got off a stop too early and it wasn't the nicest of walks home, best to avoid eye contact if you don't want people to follow you in cars. The only real problem was breakfast, in that it ran out two out of three mornings, the last day there was genuinely nothing left, even though there was more than 40 minutes left of breakfast supposedly being left. I should have complained the first time, but was really disappointed the second as it was on my last morning after an otherwise really positive stay. Felt they could have taken off the room service bill to make it up for it but again I should have said more. Disappointing as otherwise I would say this hotel is a bit of a find; very handy and reasonable with regards to transport.
The hotel was extremely clean and kept very up to date. The cleaning staff was excellent - our room was immaculate every day. In terms of proximity, it's a 20 minute walk to the Coliseum and only about 5 minutes from the Metro A line which we used to get to the rest of the sites (Piaza del Popolo, St Peter's, etc.). We found the bed rather hard, but that's up to individual preference I suppose. The only other thing that would finish off this hotel would be a pool - it's really hot in Rome and to come back and have a dip would have been very refreshing after walking around the city all day. Still, we have no complaints about Le Terraze and would recommend it to anyone staying in Rome.
The centrally located San Giovanni neighborhood is named after the stunning Archbasilica of San Giovanni in Laterano, the official ecclesiastical seat of the Pope. Near Porta Maggiore, one of the gateways of the Aurelian Walls, the area is full of shopping, such as on Via Appia Nuova and in Piazza Re di Roma. Every year, this area hosts the popular 1st of May concert.
