We visited the Vatican through the Roman Guy. Highly recommend. We were picked up from our hotel and brought directly to the meet-up location. Got into the Vatican promptly at 8 am. Our tour guide was friendly and extremely knowledgeable.
I liked the location - within walking distance to historical sites, and the start and finish line of the marathon. The area reminded me of some movies that I have seen that showcased Rome - felt like I was in a movie.
Great Hotel! The hotel staff at the reception desk were friendly, and answered questions that I presented. Equally friendly were the restaurant personnel, room cleaning personnel, and concierge's. I was so impressed with the hotel that I have made a bookmark of Starhotel Metropole Rome so that if I ever return to Rome, which I will, I will seek to make my reservations there.
