Great vacation spot- convenient walk to St. Peter's & 1 block to public buses. Ample double rooms-daily maid service. lovely lobby & bar- great for meeting other guests to share stories after a day of travel. Buffet breakfast included- take an apple for later day snacks. Keys are large & impossible to lose. The only concern i had was one night my husband went up to the room & he had the key. I asked at the main desk & they sent someone to let me in without checking who i was- maybe I'm just a paranoid New Yorker!!
Local for the Vatican, but fair distance from anywhere else
The hotel has a nice foyer inside despite looking a little shabby outside. The bedroom had a new carpet and, although quite small, was very clean. Wallpaper was starting to peel off the walls however. Staff were pleasant enough and the food adequate. The location is great for the Vatican and, if you are lucky, you'll have a view of the top of St Peter's Basilica. There are few local bars and restaurants and so you'll have to walk a fair distance to get anywhere nice. Treat the hotel as a base to explore Rome rather than anything else and you won't be disappointed. Be careful when trying to cross the nearby road to the Basilica though!
Very nice hotel, excellent service
Stayed at this hotel September 2003, we stayed in a suite, very nice decorated, very clean and good size for european standards. Hotel is very well decorated and has a very pleasant atmosphere. Breakfast were very good: eggs, ham, bacon, juices, fresh fruits, cereals and delicius cappuchinos! location is not the perfect one but is close to the batican, can walk to St Peters Basilica and fairly close to mayor city atractions. Will stay there again, we were very satisfied with the service.
We were very surprised, actually. On pictures available on the Internet, the hotel looks like an old socialistic-style hotel built in the 70's - rather boring, architecture-wise. But once you are inside it's much better! The rooms are very nice, the AC working perfectly, bathroom clean, and good mattresses on the bed! We had an Internet rebate, too, but it was no problem to get a room with a view. The staff was very very friendly and helpful. The city center is near, 10 minutes by bus (buy a weekly bus and metro ticket 'C.I.S', for just 12 Euro!) The only 'problem' was the Internet access in the room (via TV), I couldn't figure out how it worked (but after all I didn't really need it ...). Very recommendable hotel, especially with special Internet deals (e.g., 4 nights for the price of 3)! A tip: Take the train from Roma Fiumicino airport to Roma San Pietro (with a change in Roma Trastevere, same platform) - Roma s. Pietro is only 200 meters from the Hotel!
It Could be better!
The hotel is not bad, but if you take a discounted rate, you might get a room without a view. The walls need a little painting and the bathroom should be renovated. The breakfast is very nice, good variety.
The location is perfect if you're visiting the Vatican (right on the corner). If you don't have a car, you can move around easily by using the metro (nearest station is Ottaviano S. Pietro). Although you walk a bit, the path is full of nice shops. A taxi from the airport will cost you around 40 euros. The train is cheaper, about 8 euros, going until the Central Station Termini. From there, take the metro or a taxi (about 12 euros). The staff could be a little more helpful. But, maybe, that is part of the Italian culture. But you can enjoy it, anyway. I had a lovely time.
Perfect for the vatican
The staff were helpful and the rooms were not the biggest but comfortable enough.
The food was not the best, one evening meal had so much salt in it that I suspect it matched drinking the Dead Sea.
This hotel is a fair price and the location for the vatican makes it a good choice (less than five minutes walk). There are good links to Rome, via the bus and train (and walking) and the Italian food we ate everywhere else in that vicinity was fantastic.
I would say that the hotel had less atmosphere than the moon, but that may depend on when you go and what you're looking for.
I don't think you will regret staying here, though ask for a room at the front, (100% better view).
Good hotel--service could be better!
Compared to some other hotels we've seen in Rome this is a fairly good hotel. Lacks any kind of atmosphere though. Room was pretty bad--dirty walls with holes in it!!! Bathroom was superb though--newly remodeled with all brand new facilities. Maybe we just got unlucky with room, or maybe they are in a process of remodeling and rooms will look good some day too... Location is unbeatable if you want to stay close to Vatican/St. Peters--it is 2 blocks away. Staff could have been muuuuuch better/friendlier--we almost missed our flight home because never got our 05:00 am wake up call, nobody even said "buy" when we were leaving--they just stood there. Concierge would not call to help us book a tour through our vendor of choice--would only call if we use vendor that hotel has a contract with. We hated breakfast--it consisted of uncooked eggs and old rolls--coffee was great though!!! Best things about hotel: location, bathrooms, bedsheets that were changed daily (rare thing for Europe), and shoe polishing machene in the lobby :-) Overall a fairly good hotel.
The hotel was much more than we expected. There was a daily breakfast buffet that was great. Just 5 minute walk from St. Peter's square. Very accommodating & helpful staff. The rooms were smaller than American standards but very clean & comfortable. Would definitely stay there again.
Not a masterpiece
Nice hotel, healthy price but we got off to a bad start after discovering the 5 minute walk to town was through a long busy traffic underpass, meaning a 15 minute detour. Then, having booked a good room rate on their own website we discovered on our second night that there was a 10% surcharge - which was on the website when we checked again but through a very inconspicuous link.
Hotel itself was in an old building undergoing rennovation and the receptionists could only be described as rude. Restaurant and staff were good and professional.

Back on the trains again today for our last stop in Rome. Sorrento has been lovely, the apartment was beautiful, except for a small plumbing quirk. We headed back to the dreaded Circumvesuviana with our luggage. I had a cunning plan to get us some space for the bags without being in the middle of everyone. We let the first train go and then hopped onto the next as soon as it arrived, sitting in the very back carriage with our ...
... apartment. The rest of us got it together a little later and walked around our immediate area to see what was here and finally settled on a little place to eat for dinner. Sharon met up with us and we had a very nice dinner.
We have one more day on our bus pass, so tomorrow we will be heading out to see what there is to see!
Our only excitement today was what we saw out of Bobbie's window.......apparently there is no modesty ...
Today we ate our basic breakfast in a rush before waiting for our Sistine chapel tour with green line tours. We waited for nearly half an hour before a guy in a van picked us up. We even asked our hotel to contact them as they were seriously late. We picked up a few additional passengers before being dropped off at the green line bus office close to the train terminal. We were then herded onto a large bus with a number of other passengers. Here we sat ...
... and bigger than I expected at the same time. Not sure how that works, its just my first impressions. J Then we went in search of a couple of smaller attractions: The mouth of truth: a massive stone face which people used to stick their hand in and if they told the truth, they would be set free, if they told a lie, the face would 'bite’ their hand off… actually a guy would stand behind with an axe, but that’s no fun); ...
