A 10-minute stroll from the Vatican and St. Peter’s Basilica, the Orange Hotel is a petite 28-room retreat in Rome’s posh Prati neighbourhood. The vibrant interiors bring together brightly colored furniture, wall art and mod pieces such as a Vespa and ’60s-style armchairs. The guestrooms start from 130 square feet, but they’re livened up by the color orange (bed throws, light fixtures, seat toppers, toiletries), and they’re fitted with space-saving illuminated hanging rails (in place of wardrobes) and electric blinds. Breakfast is served up on the roof in the summer months, and the à la carte restaurant (also on the roof) serves dishes made with DOP-certified (locally grown) ingredients.
In the Area
Start the day at nearby St. Peter’s Basilica. After paying a visit to the Vatican Museums, cross the Tiber River to the lively Piazza Navona and stop for a quick bite or an espresso at Bar del Fico, where you can watch locals compete in a game of chess. Head to the nearby Gelateria del Teatro (65-66 Via dei Coronari) to indulge in some of the best gelato in the city. Then burn off the calories with a stroll along the cobblestone streets, taking in sight after marvelous sight. The Prati neighborhood is home to broad, leafy avenues lined with upscale shops and boutiques; Via Cola di Rienzo is the main drag for a spot of retail therapy.
How to Get There
Went there with my sister last year. The hotel was so conveniently located. Close to the Vatican and all the attractions. The staff was super helpful and the restaurant on the roof was so cute. Only negative is that if you get a room facing the streets at night, it is noisy until 2 or 3 in the morning
Great location to the Vatican and St Peter’s. We walked just about everywhere. Good restaurants near by and we even found a place that did our laundry. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and updated. It had a mini frig and hair dryer. We’d stay here again.
Friend and I decided to spend Saturday night in Rome, this hotel was best thing happened to us.
Super good location, really nice room, we got one of the suits.
Peculiar with personality.
Very appreciated and high quality customer service. Big thank you to the girl at the reception which welcomed us and helped us a lot during our short vacation.
The Orange Hotel is located above a bank on a very busy, main street and very close to the Vatican.
I travelled with my grown up Daughter beginning of July, staying for four nights.
We e-mailed ahead and requested twin beds.
Reception is very small. Simply a landing at the top of some stairs. We received a very warm welcome and were given the keys to a room on the third floor. It had twin beds and a whirlpool bath. Because of mobility problems I would have had difficulty getting in and out of the bath. On reporting this to reception we were very quickly given two alternative rooms to view. We had to forgo the twin beds and took a room with a double bed and a shower.
Very nice toiletries are provided. Just as well as we travel with backpacks and only carry essentials. The room was spotlessly clean on arrival, cleaned every day and clean towels provided.
Via Crescenzio where the hotel is situated, is a very busy and noisy, which made sleep difficult. Location is excellent we could walk to the Vatican.
Breakfast is served in the rooftop restaurant and is adequate. Decor is all orange coloured and quirky. Air con could have been better.
Given the cost and location. We consider we got what we paid for.
I've given a 5 star rating to reflect value for money. Orange Hotel is not trying to be a luxury hotel but for the price given its superb location provides excellent value for money.
Room was clean and well appointed, En-suite bathroom fine. The hotel is in an old building but has been themed as a modern boutique style, slogans on the wall, old Vespa in the courtyard, all rooms have something Orange in them. It was fun. Staff at reception young, enthusiastic and very helpful. They provided many ideas for places to eat out (in addition to the roof terrace bistro restaurant at the Hotel) which seemed genuine and from the heart rather than commercially driven.
* The hotel has a very good location - literally 5 mins walk from St Peter's Sq + Vatican.
* One of the shuttle buses from the airport takes you to drop off just by it.
* The breakfast on the terrace was surprisingly good/varied. Both Hot/Cold dishes, Fruits, breads, Home made cakes and pastries.
* In the evening the terrace offers a bistro dinner. Didn't try it but menu looked good.
* It is right next to a very trendy large restaurant packed every night with stylish locals that did wonderful food. All white tiles, zinc , and open kitchens... PS including the best cappuccino at breakfast time I think I've ever had anywhere!
We were in Rome to watch the Rome Open Tennis. Again the hotel's location was super. A single 15 min bus ride virtually door to door. So we could spend the day at the tennis or see the traditional tourist sites of Rome.
