... rates are really reasonable
(for Rome), and the location is perfect (right next to the Vatican and a
Metro station for easy access to the rest of the city).
Spent a couple of hours strolling down the streets, just getting our bearings
and seeing what is around. Plenty of shopping (if that's what takes
your fancy), plenty of wine bars, and plenty ...
