Subject: hotel locations in rome what area to stay in?

This is my first post with travelzine, I am new to this. We will be traveling to Rome Nov. 21 thru 29th. Have narrowed our choice to three hotels each in a different area. LaLumiere, is in the Spanish Steps area, Residence Caesar House at the Colosseum area, and finally Aventino Hotel the SanPio in Traveste area.

This is our first visit to Rome, and we are uncertain about each of these areas as for safety, noise, cafes, etc. Would like your input about these areas, as well as first hand experience with any of these hotels. Thanks! Neal
