When we first got to the hotel it was great. However during that night the air stopped working! It was so hot! We informed the staff of the problem. They had someone look at it but it was never fixed. I emailed the hotel and they said the setting was wrong, but we never touched it. They didnt offer another... More

We caught a taxi from the airport to this quaint little hotel - at first we weren't sure whether we were in the right location, however once we got out and walked closer we realised it matched the pictures we had. The reception area is a little space, but has the most amazing staff! So friendly, so helpful! They assisted... More

When we first arrived my comments to the taxi driver were "are you sure we are in the right place". However, once in the reception which is small and unassuming the service put any doubts out of mind. The staff were so friendly and helpful making sure that we had travel maps etc... and making recommendations of places to see... More

1. Location: I have visited Rome several times and have walked past this hotel on the way to a frequented shopping area of religious articles. For me, proximity to San Pietro was of the highest importance. My wife was shocked by the location- I actually did not believe her until we arrived. This is no more than 3 minutes to... More

Dropped in to Rome en route from Sicily to Tuascany to catch the Pope at the Vatican on Wednesday morning. No better place to stay than Vatican View. Only meters away from St Peters, this boutique hotel is perfect - modern, decorated in a contemporary style and impeccably clean. The only glitch - no towels in the bathroom - when... More

Went to Rome for my birthday, and hotel - people, simply amazing location (especially if you want to avoid lines for Peter and Paul cathedral or Vatican museums - its only 2 mins walk if you get up early), even complementary wine-gift from the hotel - helped all the way to create an amazing experience of it) No breakfast provided,...

We stayed here for 4 nights. The location is excellent. Even though it's just outside the Vatican, you can barely hear a sound day or night. The rooms are well kept, have a TV and excellent air conditioning. The bathroom has a full size bath and shower. The staff downstairs were extremely helpful, they answered all our questions and gave... More

Located literally two minutes away from St Peter's Square and a walkable distance from the centre of Rome, this hotel is in a great location. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful, making the stay that bit better. Best part of the hotel is definitely the roof terrace, though. It is a wonderful addition and I would definitely recommend grabbing... More

Dear Bobby, thank you so much for your review!!!!:) Vatican View Relais is in the heart of Rome, a perfect location to visit Vatican; we are a few steps from St. Peter's Square. We are also near to Borgo Pio, a characteristic neighborhood where you can taste the traditional roman cuisine. And for the lovers of shopping, Via Cola di... More

Location: The location was incredible, you are really outside the Vatican walls. Our room was very nice. There was a slight glitch in our check in, but the hotel made every accommodation. The room itself fit our family of four nicely. There was a small galley kitchen which always had snacks and the refrigerator always had cold bottles of water... More

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.
