My fiancee and I stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Rome. It was a great little boutique and in a great location. You can walk to the Vatican Museum and St. Peters square in less than 10 minutes. The breakfast each morning was large and plentiful and delivered right to your room at whatever time you ask. Beds were... More

I've had a wonderful stay at Best Vatican B&B. The room was well furnished, despite being a little small. The breakfast was awesome and served at the bedroom. The staff was extremely helpful and I will definitely consider staying there again the next time I travel to Rome.

Simply the best...in my time, I have spent a couple of visits at 5 star hotels...This place rivals those...without the price! Breakfast was great. Place is close and accessible to main area and Vatican City.

First, be sure to provide them very specific times you will be arriving well in advance of your trip. We did not do this as specifically as we should have and had trouble once in the area connecting to be let in. Once in though, very clean rooms-modern style, plenty of room and comfortable. Light sleepers, you will hear others... More

We reserved 3 rooms for 3 couples, we were told to pay a 30% deposit prior to arriving which is not mentioned on the tripadvisor website. Upon arrival we were asked to pay the full amount - only after showing the confirmation email from them that we had paid the 30% deposit we were told - oh - the property... More

My boyfriend and I spent a lovely week-end in Rome, we stayed at Best Vatican for 2 nights, finding out a nice and clean room, comfortable bed and excellent breakfast directly served in our room!!! The staff is really nice. The subway station is near the b&b and we reached out the Center of the city in about 10 minutes!... More

I stayed here for my last night in Rome and it was just so-so. The building was not marked with any signs (not that I was expecting a huge billboard but a little sign would have been helpful). I stood outside for a good 10 minutes ringing the bell/intercom but no one answered. I finally had to call the other... More

If you don't have a European cellphone or you need onsite help to make dinner or museum reservations, this is not the place for you. Nice rooms and a great location, but we spent a lot of money using our North American cellphones. Breakfast foods were very limited -- some fresh fruit would have been an improvement over the packaged... More

Pros - the bed and breakfast is a short walk to the Vatican and one block from the metro. The rooms are very clean, stylish, and confortable. Access to WIFI was also a huge plus. Cons - the day I arrived the intercom was broken and I could not get in. When finally I did gain entry by calling another... More
