What a great location for a hotel in Rome, especially if you plan on spending a lot of time at the Vatican. The lounge of the hotel overlooks Saint Peters Square and you can literally walk to the there is just about two minutes. I was quite amazed to be having dinner and drinks while looking at the Square and enjoying the view of the Vatican, including the "Pope's Window".
The hotel had just remodeled a complete section and we were lucky enough to get a room there. The room was large and was decorated with only the best furnishings. The bathroom was modern and the shower was very roomy.
The lady on the front desk (evenings) was wonderful and always offered suggestions as to what we might want to do that day. She also arranged taxi's, tours, and anything else that we wanted. A lovely hotel that I would recommend to anyone.
- 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
