We found the Vatican View through Tripadvisor and we are very glad we did. A big problem with staying in cities like London or Rome is finding rooms that will take a family. So when I saw reviews of the family suite at the Vatican View and with such high praise reviews we decided to book. And I am very... More

May 2013 Review--Could not have been more pleased with the clean, small, centrally located hotel steps from the Vatican. You will be happy you stayed here. Fabio will make sure any meals or attractions are set up and you literally may see Pope Francis wander down the street. Head up to the roof for a great surprise lounge to sit... More

Cannot get a better location near the Vatican. The room and bathroom are well appointed and of good size. Service at the reception good and satisfied all our requests. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again next time in Rome.

Ich have been in Rome several times and this is by far the best hotel you could possibly think of. You are in wonderful location. It is just two steps away from St. Peter's Square.

We just returned from our July stay at the Vatican View hotel and wanted to share our thoughts. First, the location for our purposes was excellent. Although the hotel name is a bit misleading - because no room at the hotel has a view of the Vatican- the close proximity more than makes up for it. Our first day in... More

Excellent location within walking distance to the Vatican. Rooms are small but very nicely furnished with a unique modern feel to them (our room had gorgeous exposed beams on the ceiling!). Room and bathroom was also quite clean which is always a concern for me. The hotel is located in the city so expect normal city noise but overall an... More

This is a very clean, small hotel within walking distance to the Vatican. The staff is very helpful and friendly. In our month of traveling through Italy this was the only hotel that did not have a true breakfast when it said it was included. My husband and I like to sleep with our windows open at night and it... More

Excellent location and access to the Vatican. Great staff. Quality room and clean rooms. Few blocks from the Metro and bus stops to the airport. A real pleasant stay. Negative side: rooms are small; but still confortable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the heart of Rome right next to the most famous basilica in the world St. Peter's and the Vatican Museums you will find this exclusive hotel which offers a modern ambiance, is refined and elegant and in total harmony is cradled by its prestigious location. Ideal for those who want to immerse themselves in this spiritual atmosphere coming from one of the most talked about squares in the world: St. Peter's square. Perfect for shopaholics: a few metres away is the famous Via Cola di Rienzo shopping district where all the important brands can be found. A short distance away is the characteristic Borgo Pio neighbourhood, a small village lost inside the metropolis, where you can taste traditional roman cuisine. From here you can also easily reach the famous Castel Sant'Angelo fortress. Guest rooms are furnished to every particular detail. From some rooms you can admire the colonnade that surrounds the piazza, take in the majesty of St. Peter's cupola and also listen to the pope while he gives his sunday blessing. St. Peter's basilica is the largest church in the world and the centre of the roman catholic faith. Its immense square always gives off an amazing aura at every religious event. A visit to the nearby Vatican Museums, Castel Sant'Angelo and the characteristic roads surrounding this area will provide your trip with the complete satisfaction you are looking for. ... more   less
