The hotel is small and family-run, very nice family, friendly and helpful. The rooms are charming, the bathroom somewhat dated, but lots of warm water after a while. The narrow street just by "the secret escape route" for the Pope, leading from the Vatican to San'Angelo is next to the hotel. The cobbled street is narrow, but with quite a... More

Bramante is probably the most famous hotel in Rome for out of town clergy on business at Vatican! It is very well located for access to buses and METRO, and surrounded by good restaurants and the entire of Vatican City. The hotel itself is charming and the rooms are a little bigger than usual for Rome--and well appointed. There is... More

I've stayed here on and off over the years and it is in a great location for the Vatican and the Prati area for shops and restaurants. However our room was small and dark, with noisy neighbours. A mosquito repeller would be useful too.Our air conditioner didnt work nor did the fan in the bathroom. The bfast is generous and... More

I've stayed at the Bramante on occasion. I must say that this hotel has gotten very dated. Not a very good value for the price. I checked in late and found a woman at the desk that could have cared less. She was very busy watching something on TV. It was sweltering and she gave us the absolute worse room... More

Lovely family owned hotel since 1873 but the building goes back to the 14th century. Just 200m from St Peter's, so full of character and charm, but still contemporary and clean. My friend and I had a twin room up one flight of stairs (European 2nd floor). Our window opened to a courtyard just outside our door. Room was everything... More

Will definitely be staying here again. I spent about 3 weeks there in spring 2014. Great base for exploring Rome. 2 blocks from the Vatican. Super nice staff, and the owners were friendly as well. Breakfast was so good! I love the room that I stayed in- at the top and had a lovely view of the courtyard. I had... More

We stayed in this hotel in October 2014 and rented two rooms, a king and a single. Everything about the hotel was just as great as the last time we visited in 2009 Massimo and his wife are the owners and offer a very comfortable 4 star experience every time, although the hotel is rated 3 stars. This may be... More

This is a really great small hotel near the Vatican that is family owned & operated. Great room (#12) that felt quite spacious with a bed and a couch. Very small bathroom with a tiny shower. Attentive and friendly staff. Only stayed one night, but would certainly stay again when in Rome on the Vatican side of the city. Very... More

After our first stay we had high expectations. Our second visit did not let us down. The Bramante Hotel has traditional charm, and it has been family owned and operated for more than a century. It is tucked away on a small street between Via della Conciliazione and Borgo Pio. The walk to St. Peters takes about five minutes. Apart... More

Hotel Bramante is a wonderful, family-owned and -run hotel. We spent three nights there recently during our first visit to Rome, and were thrilled with the hotel itself, its location and especially the hospitality of our hosts. Hotel Bramante is located on a quiet street about 3 blocks from St. Peter's and Vatican City, and right around the corner is... 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.
