Very good location across the street from the Vatican, with excellent service from everyone that I met. I also had an excellent dinner of "ravioli di ricotta e spinaci" on the terrace and enjoyed a very good glass of wine while enjoying sunset over St. Peter's Basilica.

Would recommend this hotel..It's a little, very clean hotel. Just right across from the St. Peter's Basilica. Their staff is friendly & professional..They allowed us to store our luggage with them upon arrival since room wasn't ready; and allowed us to store it again since we didn't leave Rome until the afternoon. Got a "double room"..although small, it was descent... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on a long road trip. When we arrived we could not believe the location, it is literally on St Peters square with excellent views of the Basilica from the roof terrace. The hotel itself is very up-market and palatial with marble floors, period furniture and luxurious soft furnishings. There was an excellent choice for... More

Just steps away from St. Peter's Cathedral, this very clean, little hotel is a good place to stay. All their staff was friendly & professional. I would say the decor is clean & classic. They allowed us to store our luggage while we walked around St. Peter's until a room was available. Although our room was small, it had a... More

Rome was the last stop on a three-week trip and Residenza Paolo VI was the perfect comfortable boutique hotel for our last four nights. As we approached Rome on the train we realized that we had failed to confirm our reservation. A quick call to the hotel was handled in a quiet professional manner. Even at the height of the... More

The location is perfect! We asked for a room with a view and had a partial view of the Cupola of St. Peter's Cathedral. When you walk out the front of the hotel, you are directly across a side street from the columns surrounding the square. Don't be fooled by the people as you walk into the square who act... More

This hotel was recommended by a friend who travels frequently to Rome. We were a group of ten and the location is fantastic. The terrace overlooks St. Peter's Square and the square quiets down in the early morning and evening. The front desk people are very helpful and responsive. They even helped us coordinate all of our ground transportation. The... More

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.

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
