The service in the hotel was a extremely friendly and room modern, clean and comfortable. The terrace is a very nice extra. The location is only a short walk away from the Vatican, which comes in handy if you want to get a early start and beat the lines. We can only recommend this hotel.

Location, perfect. Rooms, perfect. Rooftop view, perfect. Service, spectacular. My wife and I are Nashville, Tennesseans. We are very familiar with Southern Hospitality. Daniel, the concierge for this hotel, needs to have a management position if he doesn't already. He treated us like royalty and was as humble as one can be. I can't say enough on how impressed I...

If you are going to visit the Vatican, stay here. You can see St. Peter's dome from their beautiful roof terrace. Daniel their staffer was a huge help. I loved my room, in particular the beautiful bathroom with a huge soaking tub. It was just what I needed.

Many options to stay in Rome, however finally, our choice to stay in Relais Vatican View Hotel was proven as the best decision in order to explore Vatican. Stay 2 nights there. Arrived at 9 am, we still have time to catch up Mass with Pope, due to its proximity 3 minutes walk from St Peter Square. Back from mass,...

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.

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighbourhood Profile
Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighbourhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighbourhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.

In the heart of Rome right next to the most famous basilica in the world St. Peter's and the Vatican Museums you will find this exclusive hotel which offers a modern ambiance, is refined and elegant and in total harmony is cradled by its prestigious location. Ideal for those who want to immerse themselves in this spiritual atmosphere coming from one of the most talked about squares in the world: St. Peter's square. Perfect for shopaholics: a few metres away is the famous Via Cola di Rienzo shopping district where all the important brands can be found. A short distance away is the characteristic Borgo Pio neighbourhood, a small village lost inside the metropolis, where you can taste traditional roman cuisine. From here you can also easily reach the famous Castel Sant'Angelo fortress. Guest rooms are furnished to every particular detail. From some rooms you can admire the colonnade that surrounds the piazza, take in the majesty of St. Peter's cupola and also listen to the pope while he gives his sunday blessing. St. Peter's basilica is the largest church in the world and the centre of the roman catholic faith. Its immense square always gives off an amazing aura at every religious event. A visit to the nearby Vatican Museums, Castel Sant'Angelo and the characteristic roads surrounding this area will provide your trip with the complete satisfaction you are looking for. ... more   less
