First off, location is excellent. It is right by the Vatican and a very easy walk or metro ride across the river to the other sights. That said, this hotel is a micro step above a hostel. The rooms are outdated and shabby. We had two rooms, one was quite large but the other was tiny. The WiFi is so... More

This hotel was pretty average, but it got bonus points for its location, about a ten minute walk from the Vatican City. The bathroom and beds were clean. The air conditioning worked well. The staff were really friendly and helpful. My only criticisms were that the beds were a little hard, and the carpets were a bit dusty. Besides that,... More

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights; and yes, it does have a brilliant location BUT I think the rating of the hotel is very misleading. I simply cannot believe people believe it deserves more than 2 starts. We wouldn't have minded so much if we knew that we were booking a very basic hotel, but it was somewhat... More

Location of this hotel is one of the best things about it, 10 minute walk from the metro, 10 minute walk to Vatican city, lots of restaurants and shops nearby. The hotel receptionist was friendly enough and helpful. For breakfast there was a good variety, nothing too special. Rooms were clean and tidy, cleaned as expected everyday. There was free... More

This was supposed to be a 4 star hotel. We had a room on the 5th floor (501) and immediately upon opening the door, you could smell the sewer gases (there was also a water stain on the bathroom ceiling). The bathroom was even worse. Thankfully, we could open the bathroom window, although it opened onto a shared balcony so... More

Not a 4 star at all! The room was hot and the air conditioner was set by the front desk who kept it hot! The free wifi is in the lobby only and is very slow by any standard. I was very vocal about how unhappy I was about the heat and even called the booking company but they could... More

I heard it to be a 4-star but if it is so, a bad one, though it would be a great 3. I couldn't navigate through already a few channels on tv and the screen faded frequently. Room was also small, but had enough comfort -- for a 3-star. The receptionists (they worked as service staff in the breakfast room... More

I recently stayed here with my wife during the rugby 6 Nations weekend. I had booked the hotel because I thought it was in a good location and was shown as 4 star. I paid 4 star prices for a 2 night stay and had requested a room with double bed. Upon arrival I was greeted with a request for... More

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

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
Prati
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.
