This hotel far exceeded our expectations. Entering the front doors you enter a peaceful garden area completely removed from the noise and activity just outside. The rooms, as well, are so quiet, while we were still able to open our window and peer outside onto the busy street. Coming back from a busy sightseeing day it was so soothing to... More

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

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

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.
