There's nothing special about the "look" of this hotel -- the rooms are drab and outdated (though modern in terms of tech, with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi), and it's in the city center, like dozens of other hotels. What sets it apart from other boutique hotels in the area is that the Hotel Rex features amenities that are hard to find in Rome, like a (small) fitness center, a bar and restaurant, meeting rooms, a large rooftop solarium with lounge chairs, and a lounge stocked with books, DVDs, and children's toys. Overall, the hotel is a good value, but be forewarned that while the Hotel Rex is within walking distance of some quaint cafes and attractions, the area isn't as picturesque as spots near the Spanish Steps.
