Bedding an issue
The only difficulty was we had booked a TWIN room, confirmed it in writing and by phone and when we checked in only a double bedded room was available. We were 2 single travelers and didn't want to share a small bed. On twin rooms were showing available even when we checked in. Front desk said chambermaid had called in sick so the TWIN rooms were unavailable because they were not cleaned. We ended up having to pay for a second room in order to have two beds.

The room is very practical. What I liked most about it was the large balcony. The staff is friendly and helpful. The Monte dei Cocci historical site is very close. There is a large market in the same building and a playground on the same block. There are two restaurants and a café downstairs. Mattatoio, a cultural center, museum, and music school is just across the street and I recommend exploring it. The neighborhood around the hotel is residential and is slightly off the beaten tourist path although it is easy to get to all of the touristy attractions either on foot (it's a longer walk) or via the underground (Pyramide stop).

The service and location of this hotel are great, even if the hotel itself could use a serious lick of paint on the inside.

Poor 2,0
Very unpleasant
On our tour of Italy Rome was our 1st stop and hotel Re Testa was our 1st hotel. The entrance to the hotel isnt very clear. Its just a door to the side of the building. It has no decent reception just a work table setup in the hallway. When we checked in the air conditioning wasn’t working but we were not informed. We all went in our rooms n turned air conditioning on and went out to tour around. We came back real late but the room was still hot so we asked for a fan. Were told that fans were finished and to add to that we were not allowed to open the balcony. These conditions and 36 degree celsius temperature. Our 1st night in Rome wasnt the experience we were looking for.

Noisy neighborhood and not nicest of places
It's too bad I ended up spending more money for a room here, far away from most of the sites and interesting parts of the city. Seems like I overpaid given the quality of this hotel, with sub standard features. I was honestly surprised at this place when I entered as reviews and photos seemed to make it look nice. But lesson learned. The raucous crowd from the night club scene across the street got in the way of restful sleep. Was put up in a room where the window was broken aka didn't close fully and there was no fridge, for the first night which meant I heard everything going on outside. The reception deck was able to move us into a new room the next evening, only for us to discover the toilet was not flushing. After a third attempt at relocating to a different room we did get some sleep but you could still hear the bar crowd outside until 5am. Staff were nice but they didn't offer anything for the trouble we dealt with, for example free breakfast or some refund for a portion of the stay. WiFi wasn't working half the time either. Only good thing is proximity to good restaurants, bus options, and size of room. Will not stay again, and should have simply left before staying the second night.
