simply walk away. While the location is convenient not far from the Vatican, the rooms are absolutely dreadful. The bed was horrible, missing some of the staves. The bathroom was leaking and the towel must have seen Ancient Rome. Of course, we asked to fix the parts or to move to another room, but this is a very small hotel.... More

This is a great location, located on a quiet street but literally 10 mins walk to the Vatican and St Peters Square, 15 mins walk to the Spanish Steps. This is off the beaten path of tourist traffic so you don't get the hustle and bustle of people walking past every two seconds. The hotel staff was fantastic, giving us... More

At the hotel the perfect location. The Vatican on foot 15 minutes. Before the subway Levante 5 minutes on foot. The hotel is small. The staff is friendly. Our room was small and the decor is very stylish. Bathroom normal size. Breakfast is pretty meager. If you arrive late, the food may not be enough. We arrived at 9 am... More

I was a single girl traveling Rome alone. I booked this hotel in the airport once I arrived in Rome, and boy was I pleasantly surprised. What I liked about this place was I had never traveled abroad alone before and was worried about safety. You had to have 3 different keys to get in to your room. Gate, front... More

I stayed here for my vacation in Rome. I stayed for a week. After my room was cleaned the second day of my stay, my gold ring went missing. I asked the staff about it, but they said I probably misplaced it, and that I'd find it again sooner or later. I don't know what happened to it, but I'm... More

I stayed with my family for a couple of nights at this hotel. We traveled by car and they let us park for free usually they charge 25$. That was really nice of them. We stayed in the other building and didn't mind it at all. We had a double and a triple room and they were both next to... More

I am we'll travelled and have never had such a terrible experience until now.Whatever you do, DO NOT STAY HERE.They advertise a whole lot of things that don't exist. I arrived with my family and there was a bell at reception that we had to ring several times before anyone let us in. Once I checked in, they told me... More

I can't understand the bad reviews of this inn. Perhaps the confusion comes from their being multiple establishments, apparently all under the same owner. We stayed, however, in the Vatican Garden Inn on Via Germanico, and this is the accommodation we are reviewing. We got a taxi across to the Inn from a previous place which we were unhappy with,...
