Chose this hotel because of traveller's reviews and it was brilliant for us. I took my mother to Rome for her 78th birthday and it was in a brilliant location to walk to the Vatican and St. Peter's. Loads of Cafes in the area. Just walk down stairs out the door and turn to your left or right. Yes the... More

We loved this hotel. For us the location, so close to St Peters Basilica, was fantastic. Popping out before settling down at night and sitting in St Peters Piazza was lovely. The room was quite small but was everything we needed. We had a kitchen which was shared with another room. This was great as we could get a few... More

A very clean and modern feel to the hotel...rooms were fine, very clean and well decorated. A little small but given we were out all day, they were perfect. The location is not ideal for central Rome yet it is walkable.....we walked in to Rome in about 40 minutes. Breakfast is a little disappointing (a breakfast pack) but plenty of... More

Beautiful boutique hotel, very clean and tastefully decorated, staff were very friendly too. However walls are very thin and could hear every conversation from the room next door, could even hear the water running when they were in the shower.

Excellent location...the only problem is the lift is too small...and if you check out before 9am, you have to bring down one flight of stair your luggage. Conveniently located to shoppong and restaurants...and st peter's square is a few steps away...the suite room was excellent and could accomodate four people. The suite has two bathrooms and a kitchenette...price is worth... More

You are about a two minute walk at best from Saint Peter's square. The location is perfect. The rooms are pretty small, but are really clean, and the shower/bathroom is great. The staff was really accommodating, and very nice. It is pretty loud here at night, so if you are a light sleeper, bring some ear plugs. We would stay... More

Apologies for taking so long to review. Brilliant Hotel, perfect location, extremely friendly helpful staff. Clean rooms, everything you would need for a few days in Rome. Right on the Vatican's doorstep and great location for jumping on and off Tour Bus. Will definitely be back .....5/5 , 100% :))

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighborhood Profile
Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighborhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighborhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
