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
First time in Rome and we stayed at the orange hotel -
The staff were truly fabulous and nothing was too much. They were just so welcoming to us .
The roof top bar and terrace has some breath taking views of the Vatican and is truly worth the visit
The rooms were clean, and beds were extremely comfortable, perfect base for visiting the city
Only wish the had tea/coffee facilities in the room but otherwise could not complain about anything
Staff were so helpful and knowledgeable I would definitely stay here again
Ciao for now
We couldn't have selected a better location for our trip. It was near to the Vatican and trendy restaurants, cafe's and pubs. We shipped some articles ahead of time for our gathering and they were so gracious to receive the items before we arrived. Thank you Chiara! The accommodation was comfortable and the morning cappuccino was perfect! Thank you Alessio and friends! Special thanks to Beatrice at the front desk for her help in helping us navigate through the city and especially to find an open copy shop on a Sunday!
Booked this hotel for the 2nd week of March. I personally wouldn’t say it’s 4 stars, maybe 3 stars at a push! However, when it falls itself Orange Hotel, it really does mean ORANGE! Maybe just a tad too much...
- Location.. literally within walking distance (5mins) from the Vatican City with plenty of restaurants to go out and dine in.
- Nearby great shops for souvenirs or ice cream
- Staff were friendly and polite and always gave service with a smile
- Beds very comfortable
- Pam Supermarkets very local to get standard breakfast and nibbles. See Cons re breakfast.
- The room we stayed in had a heater/air con unit... however never worked
- The shower is a very small area with a overhead rainfall shower (however, doesn’t work very well and you struggle to shower properly as you have to turn the shower on and off to wash (otherwise you just drown in water).
- The room is extremely noisy (doesn’t have double glazing).
- The rooms were cleaned daily but Bed Linen not cleaned at all since of during our stay.
- Forgive me for being a standard Brit here, but it didn’t even have a kettle in the room (maybe just me, but you expect 4 star hotels to have at least a kettle in the room).
- Got to the hotel for 11am to be told that the hotel would not be ready until 3pm/4pm - so are left to wonder round Rome for a few hours after your flight (not a bad thing, but you want a rest after your flight).
- Jacuzzi does not work and is also very filthy! Do not be fooled by the pictures. Also cost €25 per night to rent it!!
- Breakfast is €9 per person, however extremely basic and not what you would expect of a 4 star hotel.
- Lunch and Dinner prices extremely high (local restaurants are much better and better food/value).
- Only one plug socket and one USB port - the double rooms are more set for single person trips rather than couples.
Overall, the trip to Rome was amazing, the sights and buildings were breath taking and I would absolutely return, but I’m afraid it would not be to the Orange Hotel
This is not a large hotel, with a roof top bar / restaurant on the fourth floor, within site of the Vatican.
The Hotel and rooms were clean, the bed was comfortable and an excellent shower in the en-suite. Rooms were also turned out every day.
Staff were friendly and helpful, and their conversational English was good.
The hotel is a short walk from the Vatican and the Metro station is a few minutes away, allowing easy access to other scenic sites in Rome.
There are a large number of restaurants and bars in the neighbourhood.
Had a lovely weekend in Rome. Five minutes from Vatican City and close to many nice restaurants and shops. The Metro is within easy walking distance for visiting many of the tourist sites.
The hotel was welcoming and the staff were friendly. The breakfast is basic but nice. The rooftop bar has beautiful views of the Vatican and is very peaceful, although opening times are limited. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable.
There are a small set of steps at the entrance leading to a lift to all floors. There was some noise from the street but that didn't prevent sleep.
Overall a nice hotel for a short break.
