We have a rental car that we will be returning when we arrive in Rome. Would we be able to easily drop our luggage and then return the car? Or would it be better to return the car and find our way back to the hotel with our luggage?
I would think dropping off the bags first would not be a problem - the hotel was very friendly and accommodating - anyway dragging bags round Rome is not recommended as the streets are full of people. Note that you have drive from Piazza Del Popolo as the street the hotel is on in one way (North to South). Hope this helps. M
Marti - I would drop the luggage at the hotel first. The hotel is very accommodating and I am sure they will be happy to take care of your checkin and luggage upon arrival.
Also, this is a one way street and most of the time we saw cars double parked opposite hotel while they were waiting or dropping off.
I think you better drop your luggage at the hotel and give back the car. Just drop it at the concierge because I don't know if you will be able to park in the street for long. The staff is really kind and helpful!
