This hotel is quiet, impeccably clean and literally next to the Vatican. The bar in the roof has a wonderful view and we loved relaxing there before dinner. The rooms are comfortable and pleasant. The staff is very helpful. The only challenge is that the area does not have a ton of great restaurants within walking distance and it is... More

Great location right next to St. Peters Square. Room was clean and well kept. Breakfast was good. Closest metro station is Ottaviano and Bus#64 takes you to all the major areas such as Piazza Venezia, Piazza Navona, The Colosseum etc

Much more than expected. Very conveniently located for what we did in Rome. Staff very pleasant and efficient. Breakfasts were great, as were drinks and snacks on the deck overlooking St Peter's Square. Good value for money.

We spent one night at this hotel in July 2015, and from the minute we stepped out of the cab, the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. They really welcomed us, took the time to answer our questions, arranged for airport transportation AND a private tour of the Vatican. The room was very clean, and it was... More

So different from American Hotels and in a good way. Even the upgraded room we had was small and cozy, but there is room enough, Bring a Europeon adapter if you need to charge things up, it is right across the street from the Vatican , which is where we wanted to be. Make yourself familiar of the rate difference... More

Great Vatican location. Hotel overlooks Saint Peter's square. Lots of restaurants within a 10 minute walk. Classic Rome tourist sites are a good hike. Nice room. Very quiet. Nice breakfast. A/C in the room left a bit to be desired considering it was 95 degrees F. Excellent staff.

The hotel is next to St Peter's Square and has a beautiful balcony where you may sit & relax that overlooks the Vatican itself. It is quite simply a stunning location and exciting place to be! The room I had was on a budget so it was small but adequate for my needs. I did not eat in the hotel... More

This hotel is indeed the ultimate hotel when staying in Rome and your intinery involves the Vatican, St. peters Square, St. Peters Basilica, the Sistine Chapel. The hotel also can provide you with tickets for the Papal Audience which takes place on Wednesday morning, just send them an email to request them. Breakfast was lovely there was everything you needed... More

This hotel is a nice average hotel. The location (right in St Peter's square) is perfect and you are able to walk everywhere or take the metro to see all the sites. The room itself is basic and minimal but clean. The decor is quite traditional and quite old looking. Breakfast is quite small unfortunately and the location of the... More

This hotel has the ultimate location to St. Peter's Square and the Vatican. It will take you 15 seconds, assuming you walk slow, to reach St. Peter's Square once you walk out the front door. The staff, security, rooms and view from the deck are exceptional. This is a great hotel for anyone interested in visiting the Vatican. We enjoyed... 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.
