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.

We were lucky to find this hotel! Room and shower were great! Staff was extremely helpful and friendly! PLUS you are literally 200 steps from the Vatican! Restaurants in area were not great but you are within walking distance of great food! This is a hotel that I will return to!!

We stayed at the Relais Vatican View for 3 nights while on a two week holiday in Italy. The location of this hotel cannot be beaten! It is right near the Vatican, so if you intend spending some time at the Vatican, which we did, you can't find anything better located. The service was also great - friendly and accommodating....

I chanced upon this hotel just from researching online and reading about the proximity of hotels near the Vatican. I finally chose this one and boy did I hit it right on the mark! It's our 20th wedding anniversary and Rome was our second stop from Paris then Florence then Germany. It's really true what they say that the first... More

Vatican View is is a clean, well updated boutique hotel located in very close proximity to the Vatican. We (two couples) spent two nights prior to a cruise. Staff was exceptional and we particularly appreciated Alessandra who went "above and beyond" to help resolve a small problem we encountered with one of the local coffee shops. Roof top does have...

Relais Vatican View is a beautifully appointed boutique hotel. Although rooms are small, they are spotless, and much thought was given to the overall contemporary design. Upon arrival, you check in to a small reception area adjacent to the main door of the hotel. We spent 2 nights here on our way to Sorrento. I would not recommend the hotel... More

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
