“Chic, Cheerful and Cute”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

we stayed in the first weekend of December. At first there were problems with our shower/toilet and we were offered another room in the other Alimandi nearby FOC for first night. the 2nd night we slept at the proper hotel, being given Room 305 which consists of a two double bedroomed room with a balcony overlooking the Vatican Museum Entrance. the room was enormous and the design decor was very chic and posh,with Sky tv (where one can choose the language), Free WiFi and the balcony to boot. Reception talked good English and were always ready to help. Children (6 + 9) liked the hotel as well (esp the cable children channels).
Would definitely recommend this hotel and stay again.

There's something fascinating about this hotel - it fits in perfectly with Rome's atmosphere. It is elegant and classy, airy and stylish and the choice of colors is in perfect sync with the Eternal City. The rooms are huge and the windows sound-proof. There's free wi-fi in the rooms and tea and coffee facilities. Hotel Alimandi Vaticano is the best situated hotel in Rome if you want to visit the Vatican Museum, as literally all you have to do is cross the street. We arranged limo pick up from the airport and back through them and the service and the cars were impeccable. Also the buffet breakfast was outstanding and varied with local produce and cakes. We highly recommend it.

My family of four stayed five nights at the Alimandi in November. Hotel staff is the absolute best I've seen anywhere in Italy- truly outstanding. They arranged a private transfer for us to and from the airport which was so convenient. I injured my knee prior to our trip and needed to put ice on it every evening, the staff were so kind and accommodating- they provided a large bag of ice for me every single day we were there. They also gave great recommendations for places to eat, and their breakfast was fantastic. Be sure to ask for a cup of cappuccino. Location is great, right next to the Vatican. A taxi stand is right out front as well as metro and bus stations nearby. Rooms are very clean and comfortable with soft bedding and lots of pillows. We loved the nice roomy bathroom with free toiletries provided. Altogether a fantastic stay, I can highly recommend this hotel.

As a family of four ( 2 kids 6 and 9) we stayed at this Hotel on the hearsay of the previous reviews on trip advisor. We were not disappointed and in fact were really impressed with the Hotel.
The staff to say the least were more than helpful and nothing was a problem for them.
The hotel itself was clean and the breakfast were varied and more than ample.
Location was absolutely spot on for us as we were able to cross the road and walk into the Vatican museums which included the Sistine chapel .St Peters square was a ten minute walk away .This was also a great location for the rest of Rome as the Metro was only ten min walk if you preferred to use than rather than walking into the main part of Rome.
Overall while it was a little more expensive than the other hotels around it was more than worth it and justified in the pricing.
Highly recommended and we intend to come back next year and stay here again.

I booked this hotel upon the recommendation of my cousin who had stayed here previously and boy was I glad I did. My 84 year-old mother, my sister and I spent three great nights here in November. Had a great view of the front of the Vatican Museum.

As has already been mentionedby the other reviewers, the hotel is in a great location - 10 minutes walk to the Vatican and right across the street (literally) from the Vatican Museum. The staff is great - professional, friendly and helpful. The triple room was large and comfortable and so was the bathroom! Breakfast, which comes with the room was incredible - so many choices!

I definitely plan to stay here when I return to Rome!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Vatican Museum have a great view, but if you are a light sleeper, ask for a room in...

This is a beautiful hotel located directly across from the entrance to the Vatican museum. Great staff, beautiful rooms and bathrooms, outstanding breakfast! I highly recommend a stay in this hotel, a walk through the historic neighborhood and a visit to the many fine restaurants close by.

Stayed at this hotel for five nights prior to our cruise. Hotel is right across the street from the Vatican Museum and it's only about a 10 minute walk to St. Peter's Basilica. Close to the subway, restaurants, and many gelato places! Hotel is clean and well run. The front desk staff is incredibly friendly. Breakfast was very good....lots to choose from. Best of all the hotel is non-smoking. It seems as though everyone in Italy smokes, so it was nice to come back to a smoke free area at the end of the day. The hotel also offers transfer service to/from the airport and the port at an additional cost, but it was well worth it. We would definitely stay here again. Oh, and if you have trouble getting your AC to get a little colder, the front staff can adjust it from the desk. It was warm and humid in Rome during our stay in late September/early October and I need a colder room to sleep in to get comfortable.
