My college roommate and I stayed here for one night during our travels through western Europe. The room was clean and big enough for two people. There was one shared bathroom, but there were only three or four rooms so that was not a problem. There were some communication issues due to the language barrier. Thus, we were not comfortable...

Excellent location for Vatican, a bit of walk to bus or Metro station. Few eateries in the vicinity. But while the staff was welcoming and helpful, the location is right along a busy street where the sirens of emergency vehicles often blare.

Booked for a two night stay to visit Rome and this hotel served it's purpose. It's inexpensive, barebones hotel that was exactly what I was looking for. It's definitely no frills, but the location is literally 7 minute walk to Vatican City and easy to have the hotel manager get you a taxi to get into the center of Rome.... More

Stayed at quadruple room late May/early June, with a queen size bed and a bunk bed. I will start with the good: - Location: within 5 min walk to Vatican. Accessible to Room city center by bus. - Value: Typical hotel rooms in Europe accommodate two people. An add-on bed will cost extra. Our family of four would have to... More

The room was comfortable, though it was little hot in late June, but it was a great place to be based for touring the vatican and heading back to at the end of the day. It was a bit of a trek getting to the further reaches of Rome, so suitbale for those who don't mind walking or if you... More

We spent four night in Al Ponte del Papa at the end of an extended European trip. Despite arriving during Rome's first significant snowfall in over 20 years, we found the location easily and were warmly welcomed. The location is not only convenient to Vatican City and bus lines (or even walking, as we did) to central Rome, it is... More

We were in the hostel for 2 nights, and had a very good time. Positioned near Vatican, and near the hostel there are bus stops with buses going to the city center. Clean rooms, friendly staff, and in general a really nice stay in the hostel.

I stayed at this B&b with my family in a quadruple room very spacious and well furnished, there were also tables and chairs where you can eat comfortably. The B&B is a 3 bedroom apartment and the owners live there and so they are always available to guests. The reception was excellent, we were given a map and explanations on... More

No hot water and no wifi. We flew into to Rome and only stayed there the first night. It was a good location to visit the Vatican and St Peter's (5 minutes away), right around the corner. The little cafe next store had excellent pizza for a great price. We had 4 slices and two sodas for 4.50 euro. The... More

This place got bad reviews, but I wanted to give it a chance because you can't beat that location, and honestly we weren't going to Rome to hang out in a 5 star hotel all day......some place to sleep and be safe at night was all we needed. We really liked it here, one review said the Rafael room with... More
