From Home to Rome & Joy of Rome introduce the “Premium Check-in”
When you arrive in Rome, you’re often overwhelmed more than you’re tired: maybe there’s so much car traffic around you, maybe you don’t understand the language or you can’t recognize any landmarks from where you’re staying… To top it all up, your GPS may play up because the alleys around your accommodation are too narrow!
What we just listed are just a few frequent sources of anxiety by new visitors to the city. That is why, along with our partners at Joy of Rome, we tried to give an answer to a number of these concerns by providing a new extra feature we’re sure you’ll all enjoy.
A check-in, with a twist
Of course a check-in is nothing new: when you get to your accommodation, we give you to keys to the apartment you’ve booked; we show you the amenities there; we introduce you to our handbooks and what’s listed in them; finally, we record your personal details for the local authorities (we’ll delve more into why that is into an upcoming dedicated post).
But what about what’s just downstairs from the apartment? Of course you’ve planned this trip, so you know how to get to the landmarks and must-sees, but sometimes you don’t know about the great, new little restaurant, or a hidden monument or museum just around the corner from where you’re staying.
So, think of a “premium check-in” as orientation for you to enjoy the district!
How does that work?
Of course it doesn’t have to happen right there and then: we understand how you may be exhausted from your travels and keeping you is the furthest thing from our minds when we get to know you. However, if you’ve got enough time in Rome and you’re interested in knowing the story of where you’re staying, as well the trivia and places of interest in the borough around you, you might want to consider this new service offered by our partners at Joy of Rome.
