We stayed here for five nights in early September. The Vatican View far exceeded our expectations. Not only is it a five minute walk from the a Vatican, but the rooms are spacious and very clean. Our room had a bedroom, a walk-in closet, a very clean and modern bathroom, and a little kitchenette stocked with coffee, muffins and water....

My wife and I stayed at Vatican View just one night on the first day of our vacation in Italy and the hotel was quite nice. The only way you can stay closer to the vatican is if the pope himself invites you over. The hotel is less than a 5 minute walk to St. Peters so truth in advertising...

This hotel really exceeded my expectations. It was literally half a block to the Vatican and close to taxis that can take you anywhere. There are few rooms in the hotel, which ensures that guests are treated kindly. This hotel gives much more than what is advertised. My room had a kitchen with free snacks, a walk-in closet, and a...

My wife and I stayed here with another couple. The front desk staff was fantastic and their recommendations for just about everything was spot on. We chose to ignore one of their recommendations (don't eat anywhere around the hotel) and we we paid the price of a very mediocre meal. Rooms were pleasant.

My wife & I stayed here last October for 4 nights. The staff was great and it was very close to Vatican City. Granted it wasn't super close to the rest of the tourist attractions but that is what a taxi is for. Would recommend to others and stay here again myself.

We found the Vatican View through Tripadvisor and we are very glad we did. A big problem with staying in cities like London or Rome is finding rooms that will take a family.

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighbourhood Profile
Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighbourhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighbourhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the heart of Rome right next to the most famous basilica in the world St. Peter's and the Vatican Museums you will find this exclusive hotel which offers a modern ambiance, is refined and elegant and in total harmony is cradled by its prestigious location. Ideal for those who want to immerse themselves in this spiritual atmosphere coming from one of the most talked about squares in the world: St. Peter's square. Perfect for shopaholics: a few metres away is the famous Via Cola di Rienzo shopping district where all the important brands can be found. A short distance away is the characteristic Borgo Pio neighbourhood, a small village lost inside the metropolis, where you can taste traditional roman cuisine. From here you can also easily reach the famous Castel Sant'Angelo fortress. Guest rooms are furnished to every particular detail. From some rooms you can admire the colonnade that surrounds the piazza, take in the majesty of St. Peter's cupola and also listen to the pope while he gives his sunday blessing. St. Peter's basilica is the largest church in the world and the centre of the roman catholic faith. Its immense square always gives off an amazing aura at every religious event. A visit to the nearby Vatican Museums, Castel Sant'Angelo and the characteristic roads surrounding this area will provide your trip with the complete satisfaction you are looking for. ... more   less
