The hotel is very close to the Vatican... 7 min walk. The elevator in the hotel is old but it adds to the charm of the hotel. There is a tobacco store right next to the hotel to buy bus tickets. Bus # 64 is right outside the hotel and it goes by a few major sites all the way... More

First of all, I don't know why this hotel has got 3 stars, the only good thing in it is that it's close to Vatican. Beside that everything in it, is old. The toilets door doesn't get locked. The lifter is just too old and can't fit more than 3, or 2 with bags. And there is only 1 lifter.... More

The hotel wasn't your chain type- the lift is like old parisan type but adds character and history to building and rooms where basic but spotless clean- wifi was included free which was great and staff couldn't have been more helpful. Only tip is I wasn't aware of city tax that you have to pay in cash on last day-... More

Steps away from the Vatican. Taxi rank just in front of the hotel which is a big plus for us! Some restaurants nearby and there's a REALLY cheap Chinese restaurant just next door (if you're on a budget). Staffs are friendly, helpful and honest.

If you book a single room and are allocated 204 refuse it straight away and demand another. Room 204 is like a storage room which has been turned into a bedroom. You can touch both walls with outstretched arms, the small window is permanently open and unreachable at the top of the wardrobe near the ceiling, the bathroom is so... More

The main strength of this Hotel is, that it is very close to the Vatican. The People at the reception are also very friendly and helpful. But, there are some (!?) rooms that are way below standard.

I love how this hotel is just a step away from the famous St. Peter's Square. Their service is incredible. I forgot my laundry in Rome and they helped me ship it to Santorini. They have a nice selection of break foods and coffee is made on the spot for you. The wifi is great and cheap.

nice hotel near the Vatican. Really good for visiting Rome! The only problem: many of the rooms have windows to the street, the traffic is very loud. You also can find many restaurants nearby, in the neighbourhood and in Trastevere, which ist only 25 minutes walk away.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lying a mere one hundred yards from Piazza San Pietro and the spiritual home of the Catholic Church, there is no 3-star Hotel in Rome as well placed as the Hotel Emmaus for great access the Vatican and all its treasures. With views of the imposing yet graceful dome of St Peter’s from our guestrooms and breakfast room, this 3-star Rome accommodation offers an ideal location for pilgrims and tourists alike, with easy access into the rest of the historical centre too, just across the noble and ancient River Tiber, which weaves through the city as it does between history and mythology. ... more   less
