We had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful hotel during Easter week 2015. We arrived on Good Friday. The hostess took the time to show us the breakfast room, elevator, and garden. She was located at her large desk in a large and elegant office rather than a front desk with low-level employees. We heard her speak several languages... More

Choose this hotel to attend the Papal Audience on Wednesday. Very friendly staff. We were given tickets to attend the Audience and breakfast was provided early so that we could leave early to get seats. The staff helped us to book a guided tour of the Vatican Museums etc. The ambience of the hotel especially the interior courtyard is beautiful.... More

There is something very special about staying in a dignified old building steeped in history, literally on the pavements of St Peter's Square, within audible range of the bells of the Basilica and the Pope's live sermon and surrounded by quaint backstreet pizzerias and trattorias. This is a piece of real Roma and we felt incredibly privileged to stay for... More

The location of this hotel is fabulous. The staff is extremely helpful - we got some really good tips as where to eat and when to visit the different sights without spending half the day queeing. They will also help getting tickets for events you want to partake in.The breakfast is very good, and their small courtyard garden is an... More

This was a pricey hotel for Rome, but the location was so close to St. Peter's, so I thought it would be worth it. Most of the staff were wonderful, one of the receptionists was a little less friendly than the rest, but overall, the staff were very helpful and friendly. The internet was not working well while we were... More

Best hotel we've stay... Staff are very helpful and friendly. We did enjoyed our dinner and their continental breakfast. The room is super clean. Some people might find the room small but it was just perfect for us. Looking forward to go back and stay longer.

Excellent. Everything was excellent, from staff to breakfast, from comfort to cleaning, from location to everything. Everything is at your fingertip. Taxi, city tour buses, ATMs all around, shopping, souvenirs, restaurants, coffee-shops and other. From hotel, to any point of interest, taxi is only 10 euro, or in 15 minutes walking you are in Piazza Venezia. Hotel staff offer you... More

We went back in December 2014, for our pre-Christmas stay, and we weren't disappointed. After a complete screw-up by the airline this place rescued our sanity once again. As comfortable as ever, and we enjoyed sitting outside in the cloister bar. Great breakfast, quiet and secluded despite being right slap bang by St Peter's They kept our luggage for us... More

A wonderful experience, felt real pampered when return from a days walk ALL over Rome. From the robes to the complimentary slippers, and wonderful breakfast to go, as we had to catch a plane prior to breakfast time. Truly caring staff, superior accommodations and steps, yes steps from the Vatican. Real private and romantic palazzo! Loved it and would definitely... More

Stayed here and could not have had a better time. The hotel is steps from the Vatican and within easy traveling to all the other great sights in Rome. My husband and I loved sitting in the courtyard after sightseeing all day having a late night bite to eat with a glass of wine. The rooms, while a little small,... 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.
