Like so many of the previous reviewers have said this hotel has an enviable location a stones throw from St Peter's Square. It is part of a building complex with a rich and varied history. You can get some good value deals - but that good stuff comes at a price! The staff are not friendly, the rooms are small,... More

Great hotel, steps away from St Peter's Square and most shops are a short walk away. I loved the Antique feel of it, furniture, windows and decor.(Reminded me of the Ottawa Chateau Laurier in Canada) ( Some of the tour members wanted a modern look did not appreciated the old feel too bad.) Yes there are a couple bad things... More

You cannot beat this hotel in terms of its location - its two buildings from St. Peter's Cathedral. It was built in the 15th Century and has an interesting history, but thats pretty much where the good points end. The air-conditioning is a joke. We sweltered through every one of our six night stay. When you comment the staff make... More

Where else to stay near the Vatican as in an old monastery! The former monastery is now a nice little hotel with antique style rooms and an amazing patio garden . Every room and every hallway seems to have its own story. Besides the bathrooms this hotel is very nice at a reasonable price. It is not a luxury hotel... More

I only came here one night with my family because our flight stopped here anyway and it was such a bad experience. The hotel is extremely old and I don't know how it has 4 stars. My mom even asked for lotion and they pointed her to a cabinet that sold lotion for 14 euros. Really? A four star hotel... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 dreadful nights. Rome had daily highs in the 90s and lows in the 70s. This old building had inadequate air conditioning. If modernized, it offers a perfect location near St. Peter's Square. In addition, the morning wait staff had difficulty maintaining the food for breakfast when faced with two or three tour groups.

Just steps away from the Vatican this hotel offers a great location to tour Rome. I was thrilled it offered AC since it was extremely hot and humid. The AC was "ok" but still a welcome advantage. Rooms are all different and very old school Rome. But very clean and although basic comfortable. If your trip is about touring and... More

This was the worst hotel I ever stayed in. We were put in a wing where the air conditioning did not work. The man at the front desk offered no help... Not even a fan and the temperatures in Italy were high 90's. The room had a bad odor. Finally after 2 sleepless nights and much complaining we were moved... More

Okay, I will admit straight up front that I am a total art history nerd, particularly the Renaissance period, so staying here was a rel treat for me as it is the former residence of the cardinal who became Pope Julius II. You know.... the Pope who ordered Michelangelo to paint the Sistine Chapel and Raphael to create the frescoes... More

I'm not sure why but it did not live up to expectations. The location is fantastic and the staff were very nice. Our floor however was so dirty, the shower is so small and the room smelled musky. Wifi is only available when down on reception level in the "wifi spot" and breakfast was incredibly average. My croissant had crusty... 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.
