Have been several times at Vatican Suites. Although is a nice place, compared to other similar places, it has limited access to public transport within the city. Just two bus lines several blocks away, Connection to the airport, only by taxi or shuttle. Don't try using the San Pietro railway station. You will go crazy trying to figure out connections...

The hotel was clean and comfortable. Basic amenities. Have to wait 30 minutes between showers to have hot water. Close to the Vatican. Close to transit. Not bad if you're on a budget. Mini kitchen in room.

Very expensive because it's close to the Vatican (literally 5 minutes walk). But that's it. Let's say the most important thing is that you get a really not clean suite (from the pavements to the bed covers...). We arrived at 3:00 in the morning after a 6 hours car trip, and the staff wouldn't let us in, cause they didn't... More

Stayed in Vatican Suites with family first weekend in July 2015. First impression after reading some reviews was not so bad at all......small rooms, old but reasonably clean, and a working AC. The bed however was small and very uncomfortable for 2....we were lucky to have some sleeping pills...The bathroom was also midget size and the shower did not hold... More

Our University from Melbourne Australia took students to Italy on a study tour. The Hotel Residence Vatican Suites was booked by our internal travel agent. The only good thing about this accommodation was it was very close to Vatican City. The rooms are very small and the beds were 2 single spring mattresses pushed together, which kept on parting ways.... More

Firstly I must say all the reception staff were lovely, and the roof garden was too, when it was open. First sign of rain and it was locked up, they couldn't just put a "Beware wet floor" sign up, no they locked it up! Do NOT ask them to arrange a taxi anywhere for you, they will rip you off....

The staff were lovely. Do not follow the advice of reception to get breakfast at the restaurant at the bottom of nearby steps, instead If you walk along that street to your left there are several places which are very good and much cheaper. The room was ok at first glance but we had no hot water for 2 days,... More

The place is near St. Peter 's basilica. "It's just 15 minutes walk. Basically, it's near in all shops and restaurants. The hotel is clean since everyday they are changing the beddings and cleaned the room. You are allowed to cook. The only problem we encountered was the wi-fi! The signal was so poor. We hardly can't connect. This is... More

We were recommended this hotel by friends, This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in, and it wasn't cheap, the room was like a hostel with the microwave on a chair and a full bin to welcome us It wasn't exactly close to the attractions either The only plus is the Vatican view from roof terrace Luckily the...
