  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This property is based in an apartment building there is no signage outside, we got a taxi from the airport so had not trouble finding it. The facilities were good, breakfast was adequate, and location was excellent for the Vatican. The bedroom was clean and the bathroom had an excellent shower and it was in a very quiet location. Would highly recommend.

    Very clean. Fresh towels daily. Well equipped room. Breakfast was fine but perhaps basic. Good location. Only dislikes were the mattress (rather hard) and the pillows (too soft). Otherwise great value for money

    Great place to stay to go to the Vatican

    We stayed here to visit the Vatican while in Rome. The hotel is about a ten minute walk to the Vatican entrance. The nearest Metro station is Ottaviano and it is about a ten minute walk. There are plenty of restaurants in the area and it seemed safe.

  • 8.0.Very good

    We were very impressed with the location as it was close to the sites we wanted to see. The beds were comfortable and everything was very clean and quiet. The only negative was there wasn't an elevator so we had to carry our heavy luggage up and down the stairs but overall, our stay was great and will stay there again!
