“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Daniel checked us in and I must stay its his hospitality and welcome that made our stay just a little bit extra special. He gave us a map and the must dos and donts in Rome that we found very useful. The location is perfect - just steps away from the Vatican City. We stayed in a deluxe suite and it was spacious and clean. You wouldn't go wrong choosing this hotel considering where it's sutiated.

Dear AngelR82

Thank you for this wonderful review on TripAdvisor, and sorry for my late reply.
Like you wrote into the review, the location is perfect for people that are looking for a nice and clean place close to the Vatican and also to all the main attractions (just a few minutes from here) of the city.
The deluxe room it's a perfect mix of good size and comfort and we're so happy that you enjoyed the room.
By the way, we feel so lucky to do this job and we want to share with all of you our love for this hotel and the city in general .
We hope to see you again in the future.
A big hug,
Daniel.

There's a reason this hotel is ranked number 7 out of the hotels in Rome...it deserves it!

When we checked in, Alessandra helped us check in and showed us to our rooms. Cosimo took all our luggage to the rooms and greeted us everyday with his infectious smile. But, the real show stopper was Daniele...quite possibly the best....everything...concierge, receptionist and fountain of knowledge about where to go, what to see and most importantly...where to eat!! You won't find better service than from Vatican View!

Our friend booked the suite and it is truly an expansive oasis in this tight, tiny city. If you can spring for it, do it! It has direct access to the huge modern roof top with an incredible view of saint peters dome. Our room also had access to the roof deck through a separate door.

The rooms are cozy but outfitted with modern styled furniture and are very comfortable. The bathroom is very modern, updated and clean.

We looked at a lot of different hotels for our vacation in Rome and we definitely chose a winner with this one. When we come back, we will definitely stay here again! Highly recommended!!!

Hi Regan82975

What can we say? Over and over again.. THANK YOU!!!!
Thank you for your super positive comment on TripAdvisor, has been a real pleasure meeting you and your friends.
I'm very happy that you enjoyed our rooftop deck in fact usually during the summer and sometimes during the spring we offer an aperitif to all of our guests just to show how beautiful is and also to share some nice and unforgettable moment with them.
We truly care about all the needs of our guests and like we said many times when you was here, we really hope to see you again in the future,

A big hug,

3 of us stayed at the Vatican View in July and we loved it. It is just around the corner from the Vatican, and close to the Piazza de Risorgimento . The metro stop Ottaviano is about 5 blocks away. The people at the front desk were friendly and welcoming, and gave us good information. Best of all was our room with a king bed and sleeper sofa, plenty of room, nice bath, air conditioned, and an electric water heater to make tea/coffee.

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.

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.

The Vatican was awesome and I enjoyed the tour emensely. The place is huge but very clean and everthing was breathtakingly beautiful. I would recommend this stop if in Rome no matter what your religion might be.

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
