Hotel is great for the price, the staff is very friendly and cared about your stay. They arranged taxi service for me to go to the airport. Showed me a map of Rome. The bathrooms were great, very clean hotel. The only negative side is the beds are not THAT great, which is why they lost a start with me.... More

You're close to all the major sites at this hotel. The rooms are small and nothing special. Comfy bed. We had a small balcony which was nice. The breakfast is pretty good - pastries, yogurts, cold cuts. Staff are very nice. The main reason to stay here is the location though.

Very neat hotel with comfortable rooms , well situated near Castel di Sant Angelo and the Vatican. The breakfast was allright but there were no eggs or other hot dishes to choose from and this was a pity...not much variation, that was a minus... In general this is a good standard hotel , the price is rather high though but... More

It located right in the center of Rome, walking distance from all the attraction and restaurants we had a really good time and the staff were great and communication in English was good, unlike most of the places in Rome

We have discovered (so far) three great restaurants in the area. The rooms are clean, comfortable with a nice breakfast room. There is an... 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.
