1) Check-In: It is important to remember that all adult guests must show formal identification ( e. g. passport) on checking in, a credit card will not be sufficient! And usually the ID will also be photocopied. This is a standard procedure in Italy, as the local police ask for a list of occupants on a regular basis.
2) Late Check-In: If you expect to arrive late at your hotel, you should check before booking that the reception will be open to receive you. If the reception is not open 24 hours, then you will usually have to inform the hotel in advance of your late arrival and arrange a time to check in. However, please note that some establishments will charge an additional fee for an out of hours check-in.
3) Cash Payment Only: Although you may have reserved your room using a credit card, it does not necessarily mean that you can pay by credit card . The booking agency will normal guarantee your room with your credit card , but the hotel may only accept payment in cash. This is less common nowadays, but is still often the case if the room was sold to you at a reduced rate.
4) Italian Breakfast: Although many of the larger hotels and higher category establishments will offer a standard continental breakfast (choice of cold meats, cereals, toast, hot beverages, etc), many of the smaller ones will offer what is called an 'Italian breakfast', which comprises of some type of croissant, coffee or cappuccino and perhaps a fruit juice. In fact, if there is no breakfast room, some places will just provide a breakfast basket for consuming in your guest room , or they might provide you with a token to use at the nearest café.
