Sotto la Cupola Guest House
Great guest house and great location
We were greeted by Emelia at about 10:00 AM. We were early as we had just disembarked a cruise ship. She arranged for our pick up in Civitavecchia and transport to the Sotto la Cupola. She even allowed us to check-in and leave our luggage early so we could begin our tour of Rome. The rooms were clean and well appointed; the kitchen was clean and stocked with a variety of breakfast and snack foods. Emelia was most attentive, helpful with maps and restaurant recommendations. The facility is 2 1/2 blocks from the south wall of the Vatican. Our two families highly recommend the Sotto la Cupola.

The owner, Emilia, was very helpful and congenial. The bedroom and kitchen were just as described. We found the apartment to be clean and comfortable.

Confusing Check-In, Okay Room, Great Location
Our check-in and check out process did not go smoothly. I would not recommend this place unless you have a European phone plan and are used to this style of accommodations. We waited for 45 minutes outside a locked door at the address given to us. Once the host finally showed up we were taken to a second location across the street. Once inside, the room was nice and had a small patio. It was very close to the Vatican and a major bus stop to get to the other areas of Rome. The breakfast was basic packaged items, not fresh, and we did not eat it. Overall, this place was good enough and mainly for the location.
