We stayed here in Feb 2017, for 3 nights. Amazing hotel, great location, very friendly staff. Would absolutely recommend this hotel, if you want to stay close to the Vatican. Plenty of restaurants and bars close by, and only a 10 min walk to the nearest Metro station. We had a fabulous time.

Dear AnBe1986, Thank you for the nice review :) we're happy to know that your stay was good also thanks to us! I'm very sorry about the inconvenience of the heating, I don't know what's happened, but I will investigate about it. Maybe there was a technical problem because the heating is always good, sometimes we have clients who ask...

The service in the hotel was a extremely friendly and room modern, clean and comfortable. The terrace is a very nice extra. The location is only a short walk away from the Vatican, which comes in handy if you want to get a early start and beat the lines. We can only recommend this hotel.

If you are going to visit the Vatican, stay here. You can see St. Peter's dome from their beautiful roof terrace. Daniel their staffer was a huge help. I loved my room, in particular the beautiful bathroom with a huge soaking tub. It was just what I needed.

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighborhood Profile
Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighborhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighborhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
