We had spent wonderful 4 Days in Rome and stayed in Alba Sul Vaticano!
I am a travel expert and agency owner and this was my third trip to Italy and Rome. I had stayed 4 or 5 stars hotels near center but was not happy with services and rooms I had stayed considering the money I had to pay. So I decided to stay in a smaller accomodation. Among the many alternatives Alba Sul Vaticano was the best look with clean rooms. I found them online and decided to book it after reading wonderful reviews here.
I sent an email to Alba and got response in a minute! We kept emailing each other and she sent a lot of useful information to us which made our visits easier. She also helped me for the transfer on arrival and departure with reasonable rates.Upon arrival we met by driver and transfferred to B&B was so easy.
We greeted by Sofia (daughter of the couple) and she personally accompanied us to find meeting place for the Vatican Tour. You can not find this service in 5* hotels but in here. The location of the B&B is great is just 5 minutes walking to Vatican Museum, St Pietro and Cipro (Metro Station). There are a lot of shops around and they are cheaper than Via Del Corso. We really enjoyed shopping in Via Cola Di Rienzo Street and found a lot of things to buy with reasonable cost. This was recommended by Alba and they were right. We got Roma pass and used for public transportation and it was so easy. You can use Metro to reach popular areas from Cipro station. Spanish Steps ( Spagna station) is just 3 stations away, Fontana Di Trevi is 4 stations away. You can reach Termini ( Central station) in 10 minutes by using Metro. We took train from Termini to Napoli and then visited Pompeii. It was much enjoyable than guided tours.
For me B&B is in the best location considering prices as well as crowds and noise around Spanish Steps, Via Del Corso, Fontana Di Trevi. The rooms are so clean, quite and very well decorated. They have 4 rooms in different sizes and they are all look good. You have private bathroom, air-conditioning, free wireless (many hotels in Rome charge you for that!). You can find everything in the kitchen and fridge is always filled up with drinks, snacks which are complimentary. Breakfast is just amazing, honestly much better than many 4* and 5* hotels.
We also met with Alba and Vito (husband) and they are lovely people. They really enjoy this business and are very enthusiastic.
As a travel expert,its difficult for me to call "Perfect" for the service or accomodation I experience but I would not hesitate to recommend Alba Sul Vaticano to everyone even including the ones who used to stay in 4* and 5* hotels. I will definetely suggest Alba Sul Vaticano to my family, friends or clients and I will definetely stay in there in the future if I go to Rome again.
