1. Great location, close to the Vatican and tons of restaurants and shops.

2. The rooms were great! spacious, clean, with great views and very charming. Amenities such as roof top and laundry service were very convenient.

3. Front desk provided Unbelievable customer service, from advice on transportation, arranging taxis, restaurants, tours.

I would definitely recommend and plan on staying here during our next trip.

Stayed: November 2016

My husband and I Stayed at the Vatican View Rome for two nights October 6 and 7. Perfect location....about a block from the Vatican. We were met by transportation the hotel provided and taken to the hotel, which is very small but will meet any traveler's needs very nicely. Great wi-fi, air conditioning, and in room coffee/tea service. A nice flat screen tv, which we never turned on. Modern stylish small bathroom with a shower. A large king size bed and a sofa. Double glazed Windows. More importantly, the staff are wonderfully thoughtful, helpful, readily available for anything, and full of tips. Hotel transportation took us to the Port. Stay here, and you will not be sorry AND they take care of most of the work of traveling.

We really liked this hotel. It is only a block walk to the Vatican and near some good restaurants. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. The roof patio was awesome for the view and a great place to sit and enjoy a bottle of wine in the evening. Staff was very helpful and courteous. Very quite location.

Leaning out from my room window, I could see the Chilean embassy and the Vatican wall. We were two steps from St Peters square. Cozy rooftop terrasse is absolutely adorable with a very nice view. The hotel is well located, only about a 6 minute walk to a metro station and staff is very friendly. There is a small elevator. The room was very clean and equipped daily with small breakfast items and coffee/tea and water bottles!

Dear Andreapski,

Thank you for the review :) it was so nice from you!
Relais Vatican View has a lovely terrace on the top floor where you can see St.Peter's Dome and Castel Sant'Angelo, also you can enjoy a glass of red wine there with your partner.. it's something magic! You will find the bottles of wine inside the room with an extra cost of Euro 10,00.. we will give you also chips and nuts of course! :D ihih
We hope to see you next year! Maybe during the summer time with our summer appertizers!
