This hotel is not in one of the major touristic zones, which, at least for some travelers, will be very appealing. There is an underground garage for parking, and there is a charge, but compared to what it costs to park in most places in Rome, the charge is modest (20 euros a day). The staff is super efficient and super helpful and extremely polite. The breakfasts are included and are very sumptuous....a real buffet. And the view from the breakfast level is great, you can see the Vatican, St. Peter's and a big chunk of Rome, as the hotel sits on a hill. If you are in reasonable shape, the Vatican and the central city (Forum area, Via del Corso) are within walking distance although this is not something to do in the summer when it is hot and humid. The 870 bus runs right past the hotel and can take you to and from the hilltop into the city. There is a comfortable neighborhood bar immediately adjacent to the hotel, which has its own restaurant as well. The surrounding area is very historical, there was a lot of fighting in 1848-1849 in the area between Garabaldi and his supporters and the French troops who were trying to restore the pope to his domains.
