“Great location and service”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

The hotel is just a stone throw away to the Vatican, with restaurants and shops surrounding it. Fabio and Alessandra are just great, providing us with exceptional service. The rooms are new and very clean. The roof top deck gives a feeling of solemness , specially at night, where you can see the dome of St Peter's Basilica lighted. This hotel is highly recommendable.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review :)

We are so happy that your stay was good. Relais Vatican View is open just from few years, all the rooms are very new because we take care of us as everyday. Our panaromic terrace is one of our best point, during the night time all is illuminated.. it's a wonderful experience!

A special thank you for the nice words about me and Fabio.. it was a pleaure to help you.

Come back!!!

XOXO

Alessandra.

the hotel was very nice, clean and had a grat terrace where you could bring food and eat there with view.
he best part was Fabio's welcome! He was not only verynhelpful with information of the city, but because it was my husbands birthday trip, he gave him a bottle of wine!
Location of hotel was fantastic, better than having stayed close to the center by fontana de trevi and so on, but you could walk from this hotel if you wanted to.

We stayed there this August. Great Location, walk to the Vatican museum. Metro station is just a couple of blocks away and is a nice walk to get there. Great service and friendly staff. Also a couple of good restaurants in walking distance

We booked on Hotels.com because it was so conveniently located to the Vatican. This turned out to be the best decision we ever made. We were greeted by Daniel. I listened to him explain the hotel and the area to the couple in front of us and was impressed with his enthusiasm for the property. When it was my turn, he was just as enthusiastic. He spelled the right places to eat and we had a great dinner after our long train ride from Paris.

The next day we spoke to the equally charming Alexandra. We needed help booking our onward journey and she took the time to do it all for us.

We were mostly impressed with the design qualities of our room. The rooms are small, but decorating in a style that opens up the space.

We could not have been happier with our stay. It was definitely the best property experience in Europe. And because of its location, it makes for easy walks to and from the sights as well as being able to figure out your place at night.

Room Tip: Our room on the third floor was outstanding

My wife and I had an absolutely fantastic experience staying at this hotel. We were concerned with finding the hotel so we booked the airport transfer. We were greeted at the airport and driven to the hotel in a Mercedes limo - well worth it €10 more than a taxi! We were checked in by the wonderful smiling Allessandra, she made us feel like family! The deluxe room 204 was absolutely fantastic, it has a boutique feel, spacious and a really great bathroom with separate large shower and seperate bath, a small kitchenette and great bed. Everything worked and we made comment to each other that out of all the hotel options in Rome we were so happy to have made this choice. St Peters Basilica is 80 metres away and the Vatican Museum a short walk, as was the metro. We visited every major tourist attraction in Rome with ease from this base. The area has mini-marts, numerous good quality restaurant options in Pio street next door and in the vicinity. We will definitely stay here next time and recommend this to all our friends. Well done to all the staff! It made Rome all the more enjoyable.
