Very nice hotel, A bit far from activities
Reviewed 1 day ago

This is a very nice hotel and the staff is very helpful. The beds were very comfortable and the wifi works well. Some nice restaurants are close by. It is on the other side of the Vatican from most of the activities in Rome. The rooftop patio is a hidden Gem we found by accident and offers beautiful views of the Vatican and the city.

Hidden Gem
Reviewed 3 days ago

Off the beaten path is this surprisingly wonderful hidden gem of a hotel. Close to food options and the vatican. Staff was pleasant, friendly and helpful. We were able to store our luggage since we arrived hour before checkin so we could begin adventuring Rome. They even were gracious enough to print off a tour voucher we had purchased and had it waiting when we came back for checkin. If coming to Rome again I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect Stay in Rome

This was our final stay after a 5 week trip travelling around Italy and Greece. Excellent customer service from all staff who were easily contactable right from the beginning, responding instantly to email inquiries etc. They made it very easy to arrange transfers from Civitavecchia to the hotel and to the airport for our departure. There was also a proper timber crib already set up for our baby which we had requested. It is a very short walk to the Vatican and a longer walk to the city centre. We were traveling with our two young children and it was fine to walk to the city center which probably took about 45-50 minutes. You don't really notice the time because there are lots of things to stop and look at along the way. We walked to the city center on both days and it was more than fine. There are lots of restaurants and cafes in the area that are cheap compared to the city center which was a bonus. The hotel has its own bar and restaurant too which we didn't make use of unfortunately but the rooftop view of the Vatican/St. Peter's Basilica is spectacular at sunset so make sure you get a shot! There was also a laundry around the corner that was self serve or they offer to wash and dry your clothes for you for the same price within an hour. It was perfect. We would definitely stay here again.

A super place to stay!

Amazing value for money. The staff were amazing, our room was fantastic and we loved the simple, yet fantastic breakfasts each morning......Top marks to the kitchen staff for a job well done !

If you want a nice easy & pleasant Hotel to stay at within a 10-12 mins walk to St Peters Sq, look no further

We will certainly stay there again, that’s for sure

We spent three wonderful nights at this hotel and it was a great location for our Rome adventures.
Walking distance from the Vatican and we also walked to a lot of the center city attractions.The room is ultra modern and the shower was fantastic. The rooftop terrace offers a view of St Peters Basilica at night that is breath taking.
