“Great location to the Vatican”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

We stayed a night here and it is a very nice and clean hotel with a great staff just blocks from the Vatican. The rooms are modern and being our first time in Italy we really liked it. I would defiantly stay here again.

The hotel quality, service, location was outstanding. Our room with a view was impeccable, clean, bathroom updated. I was traveling with my sister, and we had to quickly change the originally booked hotel. Michelangelo was a surprising find, exceeded our expectations. I would definitely return. Breakfast was great, convenient location, very short walk to Vatican Museums. I am in hospitality industry myself, and would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to anyone.

The proximity to St. Peter's and the Vatican was the first reason we selected this hotel for 6 nights. It was perfect! The newly renovated hotel provided clean and comfortable updated rooms, bathrooms and bedding. We had both a classic room and superior rooms and both were comfortable and sufficient for days of touring and evenings of quiet sleep. We didn't hear others in the rooms next door and even the hallway. The windows opened for fresh air and the room ventilation was very quiet and efficient. The breakfast was perfect and full of options. All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. The front desk personnel were fiendly and helpful in directing us to the correct bus or metro for our outings that weren't within walking distance. Overall, a fantastic find and we had a great value the week before the holidays.

Hotel was very nice and personnel were very willing to help. All the staff spoke English and were more then willing to do whatever was needed to help you. The rooms were very nice and the breakfast buffet was very good. You could see the Vatican from the hotel and it was only 5 minutes to the Vatican or to the bus and train station.

The combination of price, location, and service makes this one of my favorite hotel stays ever. Maybe this being my first time in Rome helped, but we felt it was outstanding. We were there at the beginning of December, so that may have impacted our experience since it's off-season, but I would definitely return. In fact, we plan on it.

First, we arrived around 9 AM, directly from our transatlantic flight. I went to the desk thinking we would just check our bags until check-in time, but they actually found us a room and let us check in. We were hungry, and the gentleman at the desk suggested a place to have breakfast that would be cheaper than their restaurant (breakfast was included, but only for the nights we stayed).

The location was perfect-just a few minute's walk from the Vatican and it looked like the dome of St. Peter's was looming over the hotel! The breakfast was very good, much better than most "included" breakfasts in the US. All of the staff was friendly and helpful, and my husband said the bartender made the best Old Fashioned he'd never had.

The room itself was very nice, clean and roomy, and the rest of the hotel reflected the same care.

We had a very pleasant surprise on arrival, it simply felt much more luxurious than in the pictures. Everything was great, from the English speaking staff to the healthy breakfast. We could also print plane tickets.

The stay here was pretty good! Not much to complain about but also not a lot to rave about. The room we had had some outdated furniture and was small. Not a big deal. The blow dryer wasn't to my liking. It was about a 15-20 minute walk to all the action. Otherwise, the breakfast was tasty, the lobby was beautiful, we had great service, very comfortable bed and pillowsand a good wifi connection.
Again, not amazing but not bad. Pretty good :)
