First thing's first - if you're looking for a cheap place to stay near the Vatican, this is a great choice. But only if that's all you're looking for. In terms of the service provided, as a hotel, it was deeply unenjoyable on several levels. Upon arrival we were unable to turn on the air conditioning (it was 32 degrees... More

We had a seven night stay here as part of a pilgrimage group, so got to know the place quite well. Certainly a great location, just a short walk to the Vatican and St Peters in one direction, and the Castillo St Angelo and the Piazza Navona in the other. Less well sited for the metro or train system. Bedrooms... More

This was a real surprise! A delightful, and tranquil, hotel in bustling Rome just minutes from the Castel Sant' Angelo and the Vatican. The hotel is tucked away behind the Castel in a genuinely quiet location. The public space is handsome; the front desk staff was extremely courteous, patient and helpful. The bedrooms are a treat! Spacious and well designed,... More

I went with a group and enjoyed the stay. The facility was clean, staff friendly and a good breakfast was provided. The kitchen was closed for dinner during my stay, but our tour company arranged for us to eat at a local restaurant 4 blocks away which was a treat!

I loved the location and the ambiance on arrival however half way through my stay I suffered 3rd degree burns when my inner arm touched very briefly the top of the brass bedside light when I reached for a glass of water.

We stayed here for a long weekend in the end of May. The location is fantastic. While located in a quiet back street, it's walking distance to more or less all the important sights. The area offers plenty of good restaurants and it's only a five minute walk to the airport bus stop. When you get back to the hotel... More

In 40 years of traveling, I don't believe I've ever had a worse experience with a hotel. First there was an error with the travel site's reservation system.

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
