We found this super new hotel by incident on Google maps, as it opened only 15 day ago. The hotel is about 100m from the Vatican and 300 meters from all (tourist) bus stations. Very modern design, very quiet en equipped with free WIFI, Samsung LED TV, rain shower, and with a nice balcony with a view on the rooftop. Our room was quite small, but well equipped with a coffee maker, some snacks and a small kitchen in the hallway.They offer no breakfast, but there are plenty opportunities around. Parking on the street is nearly impossible but they sent us to a parking garage 100m away where we could safely keep the car. If you look for an elegant, brand new small design hotel near the Vatican, this is it. We are certain that this hotel will hit the top 30 in Rome on Trip Advisor soon!

We chose this hotel to spend a weekend as extended family together. We booked 2 rooms. Very new, well furnished with modern appliances and access to kitchen facilities either within room or corridor. Rooms had air-con which was a bonus and could be controlled in each room. Very nice welcome from Fabio. No restaurant or breakfast available but we just bought in and plenty of cafes close by. Very quiet location but only a few steps to St. Peters Square. Bed slightly hard but fine. In one room we had a large sofa bed which allowed for extra space during the day but needed making up at night. If you are looking for something modern, clean with a nice design I would not hesitate to reserve here, you have easy access to other areas of Rome with the nearby tourist buses around town. Only slight irritation was we could hear the people in the next room but this only disturbed us for an hour one evening. Highly recommend in a city where many hotels are in need of renovation!

To start, the location of this hotel is phenomenal, super close to the Vatican itself and still within a reasonable walk to all the other major attractions in Rome. The price was fantastic, well within the budget of someone wanting to see Rome and not break the bank. Although I wouldn't recommend driving in Rome or to this hotel to anyone outside of Italy, due to the parking in general in the city as well as the rather boisterous manner that Italians drive in; but because of a missed train connection, we did drive there from our vacation home in Lucca and the owners happily and readily solved my problem of parking by taking me to the parking garage that they use themselves. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable with air conditioning to beat the Rome summer heat. The only catch is that this hotel doesn't serve meals but they are more than happy to arrange breakfast service at one of the cafes right outside their door. As we were leaving, the hotel staff was kind and gracious enough to let us store our luggage with them for the day while we toured around Rome and the Vatican, at no additional charge. Overall I would gladly say that our stay there rated at least 6.5 out of 5 stars. We can't wait till our next opportunity to return to Rome on holidays so we can stay there again.
