“excellent in every way”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Have just stayed here for two nights and would have liked to have stayed longer but it was booked up. Have now moved somewhere else in rome and we are very disappointed with our second location. The rooms (only 4) are new, scrupulously clean and comfortable. Alba is very friendly and helpful. The location is close to the vatican but we walked to the river easily. Alba booked tickets for us for the vatican which saved the 2 hour queue. But I would advise just doing that yourself from home before you come. You just book a time slot and then just walk in avoiding the horrendously long queues. There are plenty of restaurants locally. We used public transport -cipro metro station is very nearby. Would definately recommend this b&b to couples.

Alba Sul Vaticano is a small, but beautiful b&b just 5 mins walk from Vatican City. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spotless. The staff are so kind and helpful - they even emailed me apologizing that they weren't there to say goodbye when we left!
I will deffinatley stay here again when I come back to Rome. I cant fault it - so much more character and personality than a big 'chain' hotel.

Oh and the breakfast is amazing too!

Stayed at Alba Sul Vaticano between 14th Oct and 25th Oct 2013.
I really enjoyed my stay here. In my opinion there's nothing perfect in life so to give this 5 stars would be too good to be true. I'm not going to give it 5 stars because of the room I had- I thought it was too small for a single person, and the environment where it is situated is a bit noisy- but that's what you expect if you want accommodation at the very centre of the city.
However I would like to thank Alba for her help all throughout my stay and the excellent breakfasts.

This was my first experience using trip advisor to evaluate accommodation........and i will definitely will be using it again. We stayed at Alba sul Vaticano for 3 nights last week, i booked based on the glowing reviews...all of which were accurate. Beautiful, spotlessly clean rooms, in very quiet building but in excellent location, making Rome easily accessible. Alba, who i communicated with by phone/email was very helpful, and responded quickly to questions, her husband Vito who was there to meet us late at night when we arrived, and at breakfast the next morning was also wonderful. They genuinely seem to like taking care of their guests. This was a lovely experience, i would definitely stay there again, and will recommend to anyone traveling to Rome.

Staying at Alba Sul was like staying at home just better! The place is immaculate clean, beautiful and so close to the vatican! the location is perfect, walking distance to the vatican and the metro. I couldn't ask for a better place to stay. Alba is extremely helpful, sweet and professional, her B&B is simply beautiful and super comfortable. I would definitely stay again and I would highly recommend it!

What a great place! We stayed here for five nights at the end of August. Alba was an extremely friendly and helpful host and we had a lovely stay.

Location is excellent - one block from the Vatican museum, five minutes' walk to the metro station.

Couple of tips:
* there are three flights of stairs up to the B&B unless you spot there is an elevator, which is handy for heavy luggage.
* the curtains don't block the light very well but there are external shutters that you can close which make the room completely dark.

No hesitation in recommending this place, and we would certainly stay here again if we were to revisit Rome. One of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in.
