I had chosen this hotel due to its close proximity to the Vatican and, goodness, We couldn't have got any closer! Our bedroom window overlooked the impressive entrance to the Vatican museums. Any traffic noise was not a problem if you kept the windows closed and there is air-con available. The staff were lovely and friendly, especially Nico and Irina...it is a family run hotel. The room was spacious and so was the bathroom. The room and indeed, everywhere in the hotel was immaculately clean. The beds were so comfortable as well. I was surprised there were no tea/coffee making facilities in the room but there was a mini bar and a small bar downstairs in the lobby which was available 24 hours a day for any sort of drinks. And the staff recommended some restaurants nearby. The breakfast buffet was impressive and the breakfast was lovely as well. Unfortunately, we could not enjoy a full breakfast on the first morning as we had a tour booked for the Papal audience which had a meeting time of 7.30am and breakfast did not start until 7.30. I was a bit disappointed at missing breakfast and was surprised due to how close it is to the Vatican it must be a common occurrence for guests to leave early? However, the hotel provided us with a pot of tea before we left and a few biscuits which was the extent of the food available at that time.
I would, however, have no hesitation coming back to this beautiful hotel. It is not cheap but worth paying a bit extra in my opinion.
