Stayed here as part of a pilgrimage. Usually prefer something a bit more luxurious. Had been told that the residence was closing for six months for a complete refurbishment. Didn't see any sign of this. Rooms were very small for two people and had obviously been designed for one person. Shower room was tiny and although cleaned on a daily... More

We stayed here with a group on pilgrimage. Normally, if booking for ourselves, we would have looked more up-market (our first visit to Rome was earlier this year for a business conference and we were put up in the Waldorf Hilton). A former religious house, right next door to a church, this is a few minutes walk from the Vatican... More

Hotels in Rome? Don't expect miracles. Even the budget end is over-priced but if you want to visit the Vatican and are on a pilgrimage, a religious residence is a good solution you may not have considered before This would explain the success of the website Monastery Stays for example. The environment may be too sedate for some, but let's... More

The staff here is wonderful. I arrived on a hot July day and was welcomed by a very friendly man who helped me get my keys and wifi sorted. On my second day there was a problem with the wifi, but as I needed it to confirm future travel plans the very kind man working at reception helped me to... More

I have been staying here for about ten years. We stay for the start of our trip in Rome and then return for the night before our flight out. I'll start with the good - the location can't be beat, close to many great restaurants, a pub a few doors up the hill, a mini-mart close by, and the taxi... More

There was another place in Rome that was highly recommended but didn't have an elevator. I called tho to reserve a room and lucky me, they didn't have vacancies for my dates. I was so excited when I found this one on TripAdvisor. So many great things about it, location being the best. You step out the front door and... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights with my friend. The hotel is literally 5min away from the Vatican. It's simple,modest and clean. The towels were changed everyday and there was hot water in the shower whenever you need it. Breakfast is good with some choice. Delicious coffee. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The only thing is... More

This was a very clean,comfortable atmosphere. Very convenient location to the Vatican. Walk out the front door & look down the street & you can see the dome of St Peters Bascilica. Several shops & resturants within walking distance across the street. Breakfast was excellent. Very friendly staff.
