We visited Rome, with my boyfriend, at the 24th of May and we stayed at this wonderful hotel for three nights. We really felt very lucky about our choice, for many reasons! First of all, location was great! Close to the city, easy to get there from the airport (We took the "Shuttle Bus" from Fiumicino Airport and we disembarked...

Visited Rome several times over the years. This is by far the best hotel I have stayed at. A small place that might best be understood as a B&B without the breakfast. Excellent location for my purpose which was to concentrate on St. Peter's and the Vatican Museum (be sure get tickets on-line to avoid long waits). The standard room...

Not enough good can be said of the Vatican View Hotel and their staff. They were very welcoming and accommodating, and took extra steps to make our stay as enjoyable as possible, especially as we were traveling with an infant. In terms of location it is a great base for touring Rome. You are within walking distance or a short...

We were greeted warmly! The rooms and bathroom were very nice (ours had a beautiful bath and shower) the recommended restaurants were amazing and they kept us away from the tourist traps. The location was fantastic and we walked or jumped on the metro everywhere we needed to go. The clean staff and reception staff were super friendly and helpful!...

Well located right next to the Vatican, boutique style room very clean and well appointed. Reception staff couldn't have been any more helpful offering advice on many subjects, best places to eat, confirmed a booking for us. Would definitely recommend. Does not serve breakfast/food but with many restaurants within a stones throw it wasn't a problem.

I have never written a review on trip advisor before, but the outstanding level of service we received during our stay has prompted me to do so. The location of the hotel is great for exploring the city, and obviously the Vatican. Queues to get in can get very long so it's good to start here and get in early...

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
