I have booked Laura's accommodation for my clients and they have nothing but superlatives for both Laura and the place. The location was central, and held all 11 of them quite well. Thanks again Laura and I will recommend your place to any future clients of mine!

This is my first ever review and I'm writing this because I want to give other people the chance to experience what I've experienced. I stayed in this pretty simple and nicely furnished B&B for 3 nights in august 2016. The rooms are tidy, clean and have an antique touch. It's all kept simple and cozy. That one lamp didn't...

Looked very good but received email with 5 days before flying out "the room that you request isn't available, cause overbook". This has necessitated booking somewhere at shorter notice and probably inreased cost.

The B and B is as close you'll get to God without passing through the pearly gates yourself. The area really is divine and there is a special feeling in the air around the Vatican. Laura will give you some tips about how to make the most of your trip here and it'll save you a few euros in the...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a fortnight in December. We were in the Queen room, warm, comfortable and clean and the bed is amazing (possibly the best mattress in the world). There is a big clean bathroom, air con and a nice big window which lets in very little noise. Great curtains for keeping out the light too)...

Having been on the road for almost 2 years, I was really pleased to have spent Christmas at Vatican and Parking. Laura, the owner, was really sweet when she offered to drive me from the airport. Unfortunately, my plane was re-directed to another airport and she was waiting for me at the airport the entire night, and even slept at...

This bed and breakfast is clean and they make you feel at home. The location is wonderful not only because you can see the Pope's window but also if you want to exercise and run you have the choice: running along Lungotevere or running uphill to the top of Gianicolo. Beautiful! Would definitely return when I come back Rome.

Dear guest, Your review helps me to highlight a quality of my bed and breakfast, that it is easy to practise sport closeby. I had not valued this quality because I'm an elderly woman and I don't run but indeed not only it's possible to run but the air is not polluted because there's a very little traffic in Viale...

I can't recommend this place enough. The room is clean and charming and has a close view of St. Peter's dome. The location is wonderful as it just over a block from St. Peter's Square and a short walk to Trastevere. More than anything, I would recommend the host. Laura is a very kind and accommodating person who really went...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Vatican and Parking Rooms offers two double bedrooms, both en-suite with shower, bidet, hair dryer, air conditioning, satellite TV, free Wi-Fi and a fridge to share. From the bedroom window you can see the pope's window :) The KING ROOM offers a king size bed with the possibility to add an extra bunk bed to accommodate up to 4 guests at a time. The QUEEN ROOM offers a queen size bed and a hidden single bed to accommodate up to 3 guests. The Vatican and Parking Rooms is a self catering accomodation. In the street Via delle Fornaci just underneath you can find a rich variety of coffee shops, restaurants, pizzerie and gelaterie. Also a 24/7 carrefour is only a 5 min walk away. Further amenities are a coin laundry, phone shop for SIM-cards etc, public intercontinental phone booths (Euro coins only), taxi station and more. The entrance is on a ground floor, where you pass through a picturesque courtyard. But your window is on the first floor overlooking parts of Saint Peter's Square and the Via delle Fornaci since the house is on a hill. HOW TO ARRIVE BY BUS: from Termini Station take the bus n° 64. Get off after approximately 15 stops, when the bus exits the only tunnel on the route, the stop is called Largo di Porta Cavalleggeri (Vatican). Cross the street (underpass) and walk up the green hill just by the crossing (Via delle Mura Aurelie) for 50m. It,s the first house to your right. It,s got a big terrace which leads you to the entrance of the courtyard. Walk down the courtyard up to the last door with steps to your right. And you've arrived. We are also near the Underground A-line "Ottaviano" and the train station "Roma S. Pietro". NOTE: Single journey bus tickets cost 1.50 Euro and can be purchased from tobacconists, bars, or vending machines at metro stations and major bus stops. Don't ever forget to validate it at the machine INSIDE the bus! ... more   less
