We are right across the street from Vatican City and the Vatican Museum entrance, If we threw a rock, we could hit the pope if we could throw that high and he were walking on the other side.

We have museum tickets for 10:30, so we eat breakfast until 10:15 and stroll over.

Gardens are beautiful. I love the umbrella pines of Rome …

... ends up at the Sistine Chapel which is where Michelangelo painted the ceiling. I think it took about 6 years- from 1508 - 1512. The chapel had been around for centuries before thisHe is known as a sculptor and when he was asked to paint it, he said that he wasn’t a painter. He did a pretty good job. I think he was only 30 years of age at the time. The back wall of the chapel has a scene of heaven / hell. One side was painted with scenes from Moses life and the other ...

Tues: Glad to be leaving the big city, we arrived Venice by way of train. Took a water taxi to the main canal then made our way on foot 1/2 mile or so looking for the hotel. Wow, what a navigation nightmare! No streets, therefore no street signs - just little alleys and bridges. After settling in to the small but adequate room, we were anxious for our first walk about. Found a nice little watering hole and tried the most popular local ...

... seat of the Bishop of Rome, who is the Pope. It was the home of the Popes through into the Middle Ages. Many popes of this period were also buired here before being relocated to St Paul's after a destructive fire.
It was a magnificent building and a testement to the skill of the craftsmen who built and decorated the cathedral.
After wandering around for about an hour inside this magnificent cathedral I hit the road again, trusty map in hand and after about a ...

The series skips through time, documenting the age-old war between the Assassins and the Knights Templar by taking real historical events and figures, building upon them and using them to tell the story of these two warring factions.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Alimandi Vaticano Rome

    Great stay at the Alimandi

    from

    Have just returned from Rome and would like to thoroughly recommend the Alimandi. We stayed in the new hotel and were most impressed both by the facilities but especially by the staff. They were all very welcoming and thoroughly professional with excellent language skills- one charming young lady not only spoke excellent English but also French and Arabic.

    When we next visit Rome - and there will be a next time - we will certainly stay here again.

    Great time in Rome

    from

    We have just got back from Rome having spent 4 great days and nights at the Alimandi 4*, a great base for a trip,handy for Metro, very friendly, lovely and clean and bright and airy, Breakfast was very good a lot better than the normal continental buffets offered, a great selection of hot and cold, sweet and savoury, really set you up for the day.

    A small bar where you can get a good espresso and nightcap.

    Thoroughly reccommend it to anyone.

    Not many places can boast being the pope's neighbour!

    Loved this hotel

    from

    Great hotel. Immaculate. Rooms are spacious. We had booked the older hotel and they were kind enough to upgrade us to the new hotel. Our room even had 2 QUEEN size beds which is practically unheard of in Europe.

    Such a great hotel???

    from

    I stayed at this hotel in this month, February 2005, for 4 nights. I stayed at the new building it was 4 stars. I was really confused to get there. Because, Hotel Alimondi has 2 hotels by same name. 3 stars and 4 stars. I'd like to ask them to change the hotel name. It is really confusing.

    Wonderful Experience!!!

    from

    We just returned from Rome a few days ago and spent three nights at the Alimandi(four stars). The personal shuttle pick-up from the airport to the hotel was definitely an added convenience, not to mention the fabulous breakfast buffet that was included every morning. Aside from the convenient location to the Vatican(right across the street from the entrance to the Vatican Museum), it was the extremely hospitable and helpful staff that made the trip that much more memorable! They truly made us feel special and was especially willing to assist us with anything we asked of them. Houskeeping was impeccable and the rooms were immaculate and clean. We had a quadruple room that was quite large in size(relative to European standards), not to mention a large bathroom. The room was very modern and included a flat panel television, minibar, and safe. In comparison with the pricier hotels in Rome, the Alimandi offered a fabulous rate along with a personalized and friendly service. The staff helped us every morning prepare our day, and even recommended places to shop and eat. A staff member even came out to wish us off on our return to the airport! My family and I were extremely pleased with the Alimandi staff and service and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Rome area! We would definitely stay here again if we returned to Rome!!! Thanks Anduena, Francesco, and the rest of the Alimandi staff!!!

    What a Place!!

    from

    We chose this Hotel based on the reviews on this web site...This place is amazing!!! Absolutely SPOTLESS and Very modern! We stayed in the 4 star hotel (They have a 3 star just across the street) Room # 108 and it was to die for. All marble floors, VERY comfortable beds, Gold gilted mirrors, Flat screen Plasma TV. safe, Large room size considering your in Italy ...everything you want. The bathroom was also the best!...Heated towel racks, Large shower, with glass door and 2 shower heads, marble thru-out. The staff is wonderful! VERY helpful, spoken English, nice, and professional looking. It's almost like they are your servants....just so helpful and with a warm smile. The complimentary breakfast is also good! What a spread!!! ALL kinds of pastries, baked goods, jam/ jellies, cheeses, rolls, croissants, they also offer the american fare of: bacon & eggs. ..ALSO fruits, yogurts, cookies, PASTA (this was sooo good, tortellini in a cream sauce for breakfast!!! ) I was in my glory with this place. If I had to mention anything negitive, It would have to be ....Let me think...NOTHING.

    Hotel Alimandi is Fantastic

    from

    Hotel Alimandi is the best deal in Rome. It is located across the street from the Vatican Museum entrance. The hotel was recently opened. It was remodeled and has new furniture. The rooms are large, very clean, and large bathroom. American style breakfast. Free shuttle to and from the airport. Staff spoke english and went out of their way to be friendly. Metro access is very close. This is just what you hope to find to make your Rome trip a great experience.

    We love Alimandi

    from

    We stayed at the Alimandi in August, 2004. We were booked into the 3 star but they upgraded us to the 4 star for the same price (they have two hotels very close to each other). The room was beautiful (and spotlessly clean), the staff are wonderful, from Donnia at the front desk to the gentleman who served breakfast in the morning, and who I might add, made us the best coffee we have ever had. The breakfast was wonderful with lots of choices for everyone in our family of four (kids 10 and 12 years old). We noticed several families staying at the hotel. We really felt like we had hit the jackpot with Alimandi. Some may say it is "out of the way" but the metro is very close (5 min. max walk), there is a grocery store right around the corner, the Vatican Museum is right there and if you and your kids are good walkers you will have no problem seeing all kinds of great places on foot. If you book your stay at Alimandi you can set your mind at ease. Donnia even e-mailed our daughter after we got home just to say hi.

    This Hotel's rating will be #1!!

    from

    I don't know where to begin!! This is absolutely one of the best Hotels in it's price range a person could ever find!! We were fortunate to stay in the NEW location, the 4 star one ACROSS the street from the Vatican Museum!! We almost had to buy a Coat in the heat of August, the room was so COLD, their AC was No. 1!! They offer a 3 night stay special in August for 345 Euro's, that is an absolute steal for Rome! I'm serious, you walk out the front door and cross the street and enter the Vatican door!The rooms are ULTRA modern, with the new age High definition plasma type TV screen, very spacious, toothbrush, slippers for after-bathing,etc. I had initally booked us at Hotel Lancelot which I'm sure is nice, but I saved a bundle and can't imagine it could come close to the Alimandi. We departed from the smaller airport and they arranged a shuttle for 10 Euro's less than we had been quoted elsewhere.The breakfast buffet is better than your Mom's and your grandmothers put together.The staff is ALMOST too accomodating, they even allowed us to go to the terrace at the other location a block away, even though I think it was already closed. It's not clear to me but I think the NEW Hotel isn't 100% complete, I think they are still adding some finishing touches! My son and I stayed in Paris, Nice, Cinque Terre, Florence, and this Hotel was a God-send!! Regardless of the season, when I return to Rome I plan to stay here!! Go to their website {---}
