When you check in at the front desk - the guys are there to help you with whatever you need. they have worked there between 20 and 40 years and have great recommendations for where to go and how....and where to eat! The rooms are all a little varied. Mine had a bathtub and shower which was great to soak in after a long day of walking Rome. The room is comfortable and the bed is fine if you like firm beds. The hotel is located just within the ancient walls of Rome - and that is breathtaking when you walk out of your hotel the first time to see that you are in ancient Rome. There is a Metro entrance about a block from the hotel that will get you to the Spagna (spanish steps) Metro station. Hop into the Metro and buy a 24 hour pass for 6 Eu and it gives you access to the Metro and to all of the busses.
Breakfast is a good mix of cereal, bacon and eggs, cheeses, and cold cuts....oh and great pastries. They will bring you coffee, cappucino, or espresso to your liking.
Ask the guys at the front desk to suggest a restaurant.....We ate in trattatorias where the locals would eat and had great food. When you sit down at any restaurant - ask what is good today - dont only order from the menu. Ask for the restaurant that Livio runs for a great meal at a fantastic price.
If you are from the US - remember that if a hotel says it has AC in europe - that likely means that you may be able to turn the fan on - but you will not have control of the temperature.....and they dont like their hotel rooms as cold as we do.
