Vatican Vista
Ranked #389 of 3,764 Rome B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Thank you for a lovely stay in Rome. The apartment is lovely and comfortable, with all the conveniences we might have needed and more. Rossana and David are great hosts with plenty of invaluable advice, interesting stories and a passion for Rome. They made the trip extra-special. The location is fantastic for food and access to the Vatican, and very convenient to transport anywhere else. Thoroughly recommended.

We stayed at Vatican Vista in July for 4 days and enjoyed Rossana and David's hospitality. The apartment is in a great location, clean and spacious. We were treated like guests at friends home. Rossana gave us lots of advise, and along with her mother, kept the apartment clean and us well fed every morning. Thank you Rossanna and family. We will visit again

We had a great stay at the Vatican Vista B&B, the location is great as you are less than 5 mins walk to St Peters and also the Vatican museums, there are bus and tram stops out of the apartment and also a Taxi rank so you can access all areas of Rome easily. The apartment is on the 4th floor, it is split into 2 rooms. We had the smaller en-suite room, the room has a sofa, table & chairs and an air-conditioner and overhead fan. The en-suite has an excellent power shower. The other room is larger but doesn't have the en-suite. The apartment has WI-FI and is linked to ADSL broadband, also a phone is available to make local calls.
Rossana and David are great hosts, it is more like you are stopping with newly discovered Italian relatives than stopping in a B&B hotel, and I cannot leave out Rossana's mother Irma and also Molly the dog who you also meet if you stay at the Vista.
We are looking forward to returning again to Rome and the Vatican Vista.

Room Tip: The en-suite room is smaller but the facilities are excellent.

Travelled through Italy and this was the most wonderful B&B my daughter and I stayed in. Breakfast was wonderful. The rooms were spacious and clean. The location was amazing. I give this place 5 stars for the price. Many more pluses. Would stay there again

Vatican Vista B&B is comfortable and quiet, on the Piazza del Resorgimento, four blocks from the metro line and convenient to Termini rail station. It's name is accurate -- the dome of St. Peter's is across the Piazza del Resorgimento. Rossana and David are wonderful hosts. They work as tour guides, lived for many years in the US, and did everything to make our visit to Rome something that exceeded our expectations. We will be back.

We had two rooms here for one night after returning from a cruise and found all the comforts of home. We arrived early and Rosanna managed to get the rooms ready in short order. It’s located in a very nice, convenient area with lots of restaurants not far from the metro station and within sight of St. Peter’s Basilica. Buses stop right across the street. Each room has a table and chairs, sofa and a/c that worked beautifully. She settled us in then left us to ourselves telling us to help ourselves to anything in the kitchen including the refrigerator. She fixed us a beautiful breakfast in the morning a personally helped us to the van and bid us goodbye. Rosanna was very responsive to our emails and before we left home arranged transportation for us from the ship to her B&B and from there to the airport. She is a wonderful hostess and is very personable. So glad we chose this B&B.

This was our home for 5 days during our trip to Italy in May/June. Rossana/David are the most kindhearted people we have met during and staying at their home is one memory that we will always cherish...it is the perfect location to stay in Rome...right across the Vatican...you open the window and the dome of St. Peter's beckons you...the Risorgimento is also a lovely place to be in with bus/trams/taxis/subway all at arm's length...the rooms are beautifully done...with every possible facility that you can imagine...from tea/coffee round the clock to washing facilities, fixed line/wireless internet, a fridge/kitchen stocked with delectable food, a good collection of books/DVDs...you name it and it is there at Vatican Vista...Rossana/David are most helpful with any kind of arrangements be it arranging a tour of the Vatican to arranging airport transfers...Rossana also helped us with our daily tour plan in Rome and thanks to her we were able to cover most of the beautiful city during our stay...on top of that you get the most sumptuous breakfast in the morning which can last you a long day of walking through the many sites that Rome has to offer...thank you rossana/david/irma/molly for making our stay a memorable one...we will definitely come back to rome and to you guys...:)
