Our tour group was booked into this hard-to-find hotel because of its proximity to the Vatican. It's sign is flat-mounted on a wall next the metal entrance gate--even some cab drivers had to look and look, but once inside, this hotel was ideal on many levels. Since papal audiences draw thousands of visitors, one must arrive quite early to get... More

This is a really convenient location when you visit Rome. It is really close to the Vatican, just minutes away. It is very safe and well secured in terms of access and egress. A metro line is approx. 10 minutes walk away. The bedroom was basic but clean and quiet at night. This is not luxurious accommodation if that is... More

I recently stayed here with my girlfriend for 4 nights. The hotel is in a good location for the Vatican area and only a short walk from the Castel Sant Angelo.

You will find this excellent hotel just a five minute walk from the Vatican city and Castel S Angelo. Tucked away in a back street of no significance, it doesn't even have a sign on the wall but it's discreetly interwoven onto the gate. Once registered in the vaulted reception/bar you will be shown to your rather plain en suite... More

I appreciated the service and accommodation for a couple of nights at Domus Carmelitana. Taking the elevator (or more correctly named - "Time machine") to the third floor remembered me about my first mentors wise advice: There is no elevator to success - just a stair. I tried to take a shortcut and got into the elevator with my heavy... More

My pregnant wife and I recently ended our Italy trip with a few days in Rome. We were initially excited about our stay here because the location was so close to the Vatican. While the location was nice, not much else was. It started with our arrival. We asked the front desk a simple question about how much a taxi... More

Great location and peaceful, clean property. Helpful and friendly staff. A real refuge from the noise and filth of Rome. Facilities are basic but functional - perfect for pilgrimages. Great rooftop view. Small issue with guests slamming doors rather than closing them, but since everyone seems to retire early here, wasn't a big deal. If arriving at Fiumicino, forget about... More
