My boyfriend and I arrived at the hotel at 10:50am, thinking that our room wouldn't be ready when it was (which helped a lot with the luggage). We were shown to our room which was lovely and clean, quite small but that didn't matter to us. From our window we could see St Peter's so the view was lovely. Although the hotel doesn't provide breakfast, they do bring some snacks every day while you are there which i found nice and something they didn't have to do. The hotel is literally a minutes walk from the Vatican, so if you want to be close to that, then this is perfect for you. To get to other attractions such as the Colosseum it will take about 20 minutes via metro, but that didn't bother us. The room was cleaned every day with fresh towels, new food and drinks. The staff were all lovely and helped us locate attractions. The hotel is extremely good value for money. The only minor complaint was that the room was very hot, although it was easy to open the windows at night, it was quite noisy outside so we ended up closing the windows anyway. Very lovely hotel, when i come to Rome again, i will not hesitate staying there again.
