Subject: Re: Rome: No air conditioning, grounds to leave Hotel?
Hey Gerri -

In my experience, unless a hotel advertises SAT TV, you will only get local channels. In Italy, MTV is a local channel, so at least you could watch music videos in english:)

As for the AC, it IS often turned off after midnight. Actually, some hotels don't even use the AC before April 1st, so maybe the AC at that hotel wasn't dewinterized yet. As for leaving, as far as I know, the hotel can only charge you for the first night, not the subsequent nights you cancel.

Ciao, Kristy
