We have just returned from our first trip to Rome and had a wonderful time staying at this hotel - although most of our time was spent out exploring. The room had it's own kitchenette if you wanted to use it (we didn't as the restaurants were just too good!) The room was a good size and the bathroom was... More

WOW! This was the best hotel I´ve ever stayed! The best thing: when we arrived they gave us an upgrade and we where allowed to stay in a suite with our own roof top access! And it´s really Vatican View! We were able to see St. Peter from the balcony! The Vatican was just a walk of 2 minutes away!... More

Arrived late but lucky to bump into a staff who took time to bring us to our room and gave us the brief - top mark for him (think his name is Fabio); though can't say the same for other staffs. The staff who greeted us helped us with our luggages - there is a lift to access to all... More

Dear Io506, Thank you for the review. I'm little sad that your experience with us wasn't excellent.. For me it's very important that all the clients are happy and that you come back at home with a nice memory about us. Sorry if someone of the staff was too hasty with you, we try to do our best to reply... More

This hotel is crazy close to the Vatican. So if you plan to take several outings involving the Vatican then it is only a block away. Our room was one of the smaller rooms but very nice, recently remodeled and trendy. Right outside of the room was a small kitchenette and a place for us to put our wine! There... More

We arrived at the Vatican View very late, but had no problem with getting into the room (they have left the keys out for us by the letterbox). The location was amazing, room was wonderful. The only disappointment is that as we were in Rome for only one night, and did not have time to go to the post office... More

Dear Lxndse, Thank you for the review. I'm very surprised about this mystery of the postcard. We always send postcards for all our clients, the only thing is that they must have the stamp.. maybe there was a little misunderstanding about it. I'm so sorry! For your next time at the Vatican View Hotel, I promise you a personal postman,... More

We were in Rome for only a few days and had plans to attend a Wednesday Papal Audience so wanted to be close to the Vatican. From the moment we arrived Alessandra at the front desk made us feel so welcome, she was exceptionally helpful and patient. Our rooms were on the first floor and were spacious, clean, comfortable and... More

We arrived at this lovely hotel for the start of our two week holiday in Italy. The staff could not have been kinder. They upgraded us to a wonderful room that included a huge bathroom - the nicest we would have on our trip, and a kitchen and closet area. The roof deck is great with a view of St.... More

We stayed here last summer for a couple of nights. The room is super small but has a cool old "design", especially the beautiful ceiling. The bathroom was smelly. Its location is quite convenient especially for Vatican and there is about 10 min walk for the subway. There is no breakfast or any food/drink services, watch out where you choose... More
