Wonderful hotel literally right outside Vatican with a rooftop terrace that has awesome views and cocktail hour. We had cocktails on the rooftop our first night in Rome with sunset and a very memorable evening. A definite for a lovely first night in Rome. Convenient to everything and the staff is beyond helpful! Loved it!

This boutique hotel hotel is truly a hidden gem, its location is unbelievable literally on St Peter's Square. This is the 3rd time I have stayed here and each time it is consistently good. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are slightly small but the terrace makes up for it.

Pulling up to the hotel is surreal. Directly across the street is Bernini's colonnade of St. Peter's Square. The terrace has an incredible view of the basilica that was awe-inspiring. The breakfast was a nice way to start the day. The room was comfortable, and clean. There was enough room to include a small bed for my mom (who was... More

Location, location, location. We felt like celebrities staying at the Residenza Paola VI. Our apartment (3 beds in 2 rooms and a nice bathroom) was nicely furnished, spotlessly clean, and well maintained. The greatest asset is the rooftop patio where you can go to have drinks, appetizers and a light meal selection while you watch the sun set over the... More

The hotel is in an excellent location for sightseeing. You are literally so close to St. Peter's that part of the bar-area terrace is closed off (it seems permanently) by a wooden railing. A sign on the railing states that this part of the terrace is off-limits to guests for security reasons. Sad, but I'm not taking away from the... More

Such a pleasant surprise, I booked through Expedia to be close to my conference and had no idea that I would be just across the road from St Peter's. Unlikely entrance and a small lift but the great delight of this hotel is the open air terrace overlooking the Vatican. I opened my curtains each morning to see Swiss guards.... More

I have been fortunate to visit Rome no less than 10 times. This hotel is now one of my favorites and one that I will use time and time again. The entrance is secure, the location is literally right next to St. Peters and the Vatican. The staff is not only friendly, but incredibly helpful, especially Marina. The breakfast buffet... More

Wonderful staff. Ideal location to the Vatican. Rooms simple but nice. Great food on the terrace loved my stay there. Only thing no ice available and no washcloths. Be sure to bring one if you like to use one

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Residenza Paolo VI, established on the premises of an Augustinian Monastery, was inaugurated at the beginning of the Holy Year 2000. The genius loci and the charm of tradition, still alive in its ancient walls, make this property your "private" haven in Rome, far away from chaos, in the pulsing heart of the Eternal City. Rome has many hotels, but only one of them is located directly on St. Peter's Square (Vatican): Residenza Paolo VI, the ideal place for those wishing to stay in the heart of Christendom, close to St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Grottoes, the Necropolis, St Peter's and Saint John Paul II's tombs, the Vatican Gardens and St. Angel's Castle. Walking along the Vatican Wall, it's easy to reach the Vatican Museums and visit the famous Sistine Chapel. Furthermore, some of our rooms offer special view of the Holy Office or of the internal courtyard of the ancient monastery or even of St. Peter's Dome. From our magnificent Terrace it is possible to admire up close St. Peter's Basilica and the Apostolic Palace, exactly where the Holy Father Pope Francis appears to bless the faithful and to recite the Sunday Angelus. ... more   less
