The hotel is a holiday inn. If you have stayed at one before don't expect anything more. If you have not here it is. It is a hotel priced accordingly to where it is. It is half way between the airport (FCO) and the main city. The trip from the airport cost me 45 euros (65 USD) there is NO airport shuttle. The distance from the airport is very close but the traffic sucks raw [--]. Anyway we arrived rather early and they had a room available which was nice because that added a day of sight seeing for us (14 yr old daughter and myself). The rooms are small typical eurpoean sized but they are updated, clean, nice bathroom with a bidet. All the channels except for cnn are in Italian so when you get home at night just rest up for the next day. There is a shuttle into the city that stops at 2 places St Peter's Square and Palazzo Venzia. There is a 3 euro (4.35 USD) per person fee for the shuttle and you have to make a reservation, which means your day has to be planned out somewhat. Yes they must know what time you will take the shuttle out of the hotel and back to the hotel, the schedule for the shuttle out of the hotel is at 1015, 1500, 1800, 2000 the shuttle back to the hotel is at 1100, 1600, 1900, 2100. If you buy a ticket to use the shuttle and you decide not to use it you lose the money. I bought the shuttle tickets to return at 2100, but ended up taking a taxi from the Vatican City Museum exit to the hotel cost 18 euro (26 USD). The internet is not free 15 euro (21.75) for 24 hours.Bring converter plugs if you come from the US, they do not supply for US electrical plugs.
If you can spring for a hotel in the city do it (extra 75 dollars a night at most). Walking to the sights is far better than waiting to be taken there and sitting for 35 to 45 minutes in traffic. I will be here until Easter Sunday posting updates and will post some pictures of the hotel.
