We went in and had to wait ages for our room. Once we arrived, i sat on my bed to realise all the underneath was broken and i wasn't able to sleep in it. After this we then found stains all over the bed covers (blood) and we asked to get them changed, they were changed shortly after to another... More

The building and location are good. Though it could maybe use a bit of a refurbishment (ie: stained carpets) the accommodation is clean and the staff are helpful and friendly. Reasonably priced too! The hotel was very busy during my stay and guests were having trouble finding a place to sit and eat their breakfast although there was a good... More

I wasn't crazy about the room it seemed like it could use a makeover. But you cannot complain about the wonderful location. walking distance to shops. We had breakfast as part of our tour group. It was ok not a big deal. Wifi is not in the rooms but the lobby.

A few days ago I stayed at this hotel. I usually do not like to writing negative reviews. However I feel that this one deserve it. Upon arrival the checking desk the receptionist was not there, had to wait a while. The single room I reserve was very tiny and dark so I went back to the very unfriendly receptionist... More

- This hotel was very close to the Vatican. Also, there is a bus stop a few blocks away (SIT Bus) that allows you to get a direct shuttle from the airport -- much less expensive than the taxi. I didn't know about it on the way in, but took the SIT on the way out (6 or 7 Euros).... More

The hotel was a two minute walk from St. Peter's Basilica. It was so close my family couldn't believe we were at St. Peter's already. Small room (which is typical of a lot of Italian hotels) but it was clean and air conditioned and the staff spoke good English. Ten minutes on foot from Castle Saint Angelo, ten minutes from...

This hotel looks good from the outside. The reception area and lounge area promising. Then you get out of the lift to your floor and immediately see how tired and dated the hotel is. We had a decent sized double room with extra single bed! The bathroom was also a decent size. However, the toilet was difficult to flush, the... More

Great location, easy walking distance distance to Vatican City, 20 mins plus walk to Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain. Breakfast could be better, alot of nearby family run restaurants to choose from, we stayed 3 nights and found the City amazing for a first time couple to visit. East outsude the Vatican City and prices drop.

Location of this hotel is fantastic, 5 minutes walking distance from the Vatican and St Peters Basilica. To get into Rome and the colosseum etc it is only a short walk to the train station, from hotel to colosseum in under half hour. First impression of the hotel was great, reception area and lobby was nice. Out of the 3... More

Hotel was clean and well located for easy walking around the city. The rooms were modern and AC was GREAT! (Wish I could say that for the other hotels we stayed in in Italy. Breakfast was very basic. Many good restaurants nearby and the staff was friendly and accommodating.

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
