Yes this hotel is right next to the vatican with a fantastic view of it. Thats about the only thing positive about it unfortunately. We stayed here 3 nights june 2013. Rooms are small, beds small (but comfortable), bathroom so small so you can only be one person in it at a time. The shower is a little cheap cabin, no bath tub and the shower itself looks like one you can buy in Aldi for 2,99. The rooms have no view and are poorly sound insolated so you can hear everything that is going on in the passageway.
The biggest disapointment was however the roof terrace that you are not alowed or able to step out on. There are some small chairs for a limited amount of people at the beginning of the terrace, however the teracce itself is closed off to guests. What a waste.
One more thing that was very rude and disapointing was the cleaning lady that walked into our room with us in bed from 8 o clock in the morning without knocking. She did this 4 times even after we complined about it. Completely outrageous! In the end we had to block our door from the inside with a chair.
Not exactly what you expect from a hotel with this price tag!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Residenza Paolo VI, established on the premises of an Augustinian Monastery, was inaugurated at the beginning of the Holy Year 2000. The genius loci and the charm of tradition, still alive in its ancient walls, make this property your "private" haven in Rome, far away from chaos, in the pulsing heart of the Eternal City. Rome has many hotels, but only one of them is located directly on St. Peter's Square (Vatican): Residenza Paolo VI, the ideal place for those wishing to stay in the heart of Christendom, close to St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Grottoes, the Necropolis, St Peter's and Saint John Paul II's tombs, the Vatican Gardens and St. Angel's Castle. Walking along the Vatican Wall, it's easy to reach the Vatican Museums and visit the famous Sistine Chapel. Furthermore, some of our rooms offer special view of the Holy Office or of the internal courtyard of the ancient monastery or even of St. Peter's Dome. From our magnificent Terrace it is possible to admire up close St. Peter's Basilica and the Apostolic Palace, exactly where the Holy Father Pope Francis appears to bless the faithful and to recite the Sunday Angelus. ... more less
