Booked the hotel for one night pre-cruise based on Rick Steves recommendation. When we arrived a little after 10:00 am our room was ready and we were able to check in and drop our bags in our room before heading out to see the sites (which the Front Desk staff helped us with on a map they have). The metro is a short walk (8-10 minutes) but we spent our first day walking around the city. On the second day, we had reservations to tour the Vatican and were able to leave our bags at the hotel after we had checked out, since we had transportation that would be picking us up at 2:30 to take us to our ship.
As other reviewers have stated, there is free wifi available. There are computers in the lobby available for use, and there are passwords (good for 6 hours) that you can get from the front desk to use in your room....you can get an unlimited number of these.
The room is simple but clean and suited us just fine as we spent all our time out in the city. We would definitely use this hotel again on a future trip to Rome.
