It was our first trip to Rome, Italy. Hotel was recommended by friend from one of world's biggest B2B travel agent. And it was totally highly recommended..!

Located only few seconds walking to Vatican Square, room was clean and nice. Yet price us much affordable.

Free Wifi with strong signal unlike others. Nice bathroom. nothing to complain at all. Perfect for everyone's vacation in Rome!

Staffs (Daniel and Fabio) are humbled and helpful. Big thumbs to you guys from both of us!

There are plenty souvenir shops around, one has very good price amongst others (take right once step out from the hotel, the 2nd shop on the right side).

Takes only few minutes enjoyable walkig to Subway to connect you to all exotic places in Rome.

Again, much recommended ones! We definitely will stay there again on next visit to Rome!

Sampai jumpa..!

My husband and I LOVE this place and hope to come back soon. Fabio and all of the staff were so friendly and helpful. They upgraded our room to the St. Peter Suite for free (since it was our honeymoon and the suite was vacant), and even surprised us with a complimentary bottle of wine during our stay! They really took their time to answer all of our questions as thoroughly as possible. They even called the Borghese Gallery to reserve museum tickets for us when we couldn't figure out how to book tickets. You can tell they genuinely care about their guests and want you to enjoy your stay stress-free.

The hotel tastefully brings modernity into an old city. I enjoy the look of modern design, but I still LOVE vintage features. This hotel had the best of both worlds for me. I came to Rome wanting to feel like Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. I was enchanted by the fact that our room opened with a skeleton key. Once in the suite you immediately notice the clean interior design, but the most charming details were the rustic wooden ceilings and antique windows. I immediately opened up every window and poked my head out to watch the quaint streets. The sounds, the sights, and delicious smells of the city filling the room was perfectly lovely. The bathroom definitely brings the luxury. The walk-in tub has a great rainfall showerhead which is so nice to come back to after a long day of being a tourist.

The hotel had just about every amenity we really needed. Free wi-fi. TV. Heating/cooling. Just outside our suite door had a small closeted kitchenette with a toaster oven and mini fridge stocked with complimentary bottles of water that we were able to put our groceries in. We would make breakfast sandwiches and then enjoy them on the rooftop terrace which was very peaceful... sometimes almost too quiet because we often were the only ones up there (but who would mind that?!).

The location is AWESOME especially if you plan on spending a good amount of time at the Vatican. Getting to the entrance of St. Peter's Square must be less than a 5 minute walk. It's about a 10 minute walk from the train/subway station. Lots of restaurants and gift shops in the area. The neighborhood can be lively during the day, but it's nice and quiet at night.

Overall, the Vatican View hotel helped to make our stay in Rome a truly pleasant experience. I wish I was back there now just poking my head out of the windows.

Staying at the Vatican View is a bit like having your own private home in the Vatican. Location cannot be bettered; as Fabio, our charming and genial receptionist commented, 'You can hear the Pope snore!' Well, we couldn't put that to the test (!) but the basilica was literally a 2 minute walk away and an elevator ride in the hotel takes you to superb rooftop views of St Peter's Dome. The location means it is possible to have toured St Peter's before local cafes even open for breakfast. A private entrance door from the street takes you to beautiful rooms - elegantly decorated in soft greys, whites and taupes with beamed ceilings and window shutters that open onto classical Roman terracotta facades. Our bathroom was equipped with a superb shower. And Fabio and Alessandra simply could not have done more to see all our needs were met. In the
evening, the location again wins out if you ever wondered what it would be like to eveasdrop on local clerical gossip, as Vatican clergy frequent a number of local restaurants. Links to other parts of Rome are not bad, with buses a five minute walk away and the subway/tube perhaps ten. We simply can't wait to come back!

The Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We were so touched by unexpected birthday congratulation to my husband. The bottle of good red wine as a gift to him was a special emotional bonus.We we happy to use our private small kitchen just outside the room. The location is so good to have quiet night walks in the St.Peters square and around St.Angelo.And during daytime it is the best neighborhood to have great shopping (Cola di Rienzo street), restaurants( Osteria Venerina - great pizzas) and great coffee experiences(Cantiani) far from the tourist crowds. Vatican View is strongly recommended.

We stayed at the Relais Vatican for a weekend getaway. The location is perfect, the hotel is minutes away from the Vatican, and a 10 minute walk from the metro. The room we stayed in was on the second floor, it was clean with modern furnishings and fittings. The bathroom was spacious and equipped with modern fittings including a great shower. The free wifi was a big plus and the connection speed was good. The service was excellent, Fabio was very welcoming and helpful.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 202, lovely room, no view of the Vatican if that is what you're looking for.

Dear Chris,

Thank you for the nice review.
We are so happy to know that your stay was beautiful.
Relais Vatican View is a little but glamour Hotel.. Often we liken to a cave .. Outside it looks like a simple gray frame, but once you go inside, you can realize how it is special and magical thanks to its beautiful and modern rooms.

We hope to see you again!

Regards,

Alessandra.
