The Vatican relais is not really an hotel, in fact I really had to search the entry as the Relais reception looks like a normal shop from Outside... But then the experience started and was great. The staff was very nice and helpful, I have first been guided to my room located in the building next door. When you enter the building, you immediately enter in a very nice, cosy atmosphere. The overall design of the room was also a good surprise, spacious, with nice decoration... There is no restaurant, but you will find many different bars and restaurant around the corner,,, finally the overall experience was quite unique.
The location of the Relais is perfect, just 5mn walk from the Vatican...
