We enjoyed our stay here very much. To be able to take ten steps out from the hotel's front walk and see the Saint Peter's Basilica looming large over you is quite unbelievable. You are only a few meters from everything Vatican. The hotel is a 600 year old former religious house. The bathroom was quite modern, with a wonderful...

Wonderful!!! It' an historical structured in the main center of Rome, spectacular! The room was very simply but all the structure is wonderful, full of frescoes, statues and paintings. Behind the "Cappella Sistina" the position is very good for all the visits of the city!

You enter this hotel and get a WOW feeling - great location, amazing historical atmosphere (it's an old monastery), impressive paintings on the old walls, preserved painting on the ceilings, well kept old stone stairs, a very nice restaurant "La Terassa" and friendly and helpful staff..... and then you get the key to your room... first warning is the elevator...

The receptionists are very friendly and serviceminded, but the hotel is old and needs badly a renovation. Staff in breakfast room should learn a bit about service. It seems that the hotel is run out on date, just because some Cardinals are living there now and then, the hotel needs to update Next time I visit Rome I will for...

The hotel is placed in a great location - I could not imagine a better one... They offer parking spaces and the breakfast served was nice (but nothing special). The hotel is very old/stylish so if you expect modern amenities/interior, you will be disappointed. The room we got was big enough and was overlooking the parking spaces (it was quiet)....

LOCATION - depending on your purpose, this hotel is one of the best hotels you can get near St. Peter's basilica (about 300 meters to the left) and access outside the city (about 500 meters to the right). Since our intent was to attend the Christmas Eve mass, the location of the hotel was perfect for us. There were a...

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.
