If you don't care about sleeping, then this hotel is for you. On Fridays, Saturdays, and even Sundays expect loud celebrations that occur in the central garden area of the hotel, that begin around 10pm (following the pleasantly quiet dinner that was held in the "Veranda" Dinning Room/Bar). The celebration and dancing continues outside for the dessert and the wedding...

The best feature of this hotel is it's location. It's close to the Vatican, and within walking distance of several historical sites. THAT'S the good part. On the minus side, the rooms are rather sparse, and the bathroom leaves alot to be desired There is little of any space to place toiletries etc. The shower was so small, in order...

The hotel is convenient close to the Vatican, but be aware that the airconditioning is not working in May . There is an AC system but it is not working now.... Even when it is hot. I' m staying here now, but will be looking for a hotel with AC and move out. I did got a fan to use....

We stayed at here for a weekend in March. The hotel's best feature is it's location at the very entrance to Vatican city. The rooms have the original decor, however not too practical. The bed was uncomfortable with thin bedding. Floor is covered by tiles throughout the room, which makes it very cold to step on. We were asked to...

This is a beautiful, historic hotel, formerly a palazzo, that is on the street leading to St. Peter's Cathedral. It is also very convenient to the banks of the Tiber River and a 15 minute walk to Trastevere. Also, close to many restaurants (including those on Pio Borgo. Our room was spare but clean. Had a TV, refrigerator, hair dryer....

Im very mixed with this review. The Columbus is literally at the entrance to St. Peters Square, so we were not there to stay in our room...that said, the room was not much more than a place to lay our heads. The hotel is an old palace, so the common areas are spectacular and ornate and the courtyard is gorgeous....

This is by no means a luxury boutique hotel but you get a lot for your money. It is clean and well run. The building in itself is the perfect example of the wonderful Roman architecture. Adjacent to Saint Peters it has a beautiful internal courtyard. The staff is super helpful and we have no complaints. It is a little...

The location is wonderful. The historic building added to the experience. Service at the desk was excellent. Breakfast was very good. Recommend this hotel to anyone for their visit to Rome. The hotel has wifi that we found was a little weak up in our room but seemed to work well downstairs in the designated wifi area.

We had a very spacious room and the staff was incredibly warm and accommodating. The breakfast was a little spartan...but there was plenty of coffee (American) and they never ran out of anything. The big selling points here are the courtyard, the geography, and the history. It's 1 1/2 blocks from St. Peter's Square. 15 minute walk to the Pantheon...

I stayed at this hotel with my family a week ago. We had separate rooms. Me and my sister shared one with separate beds and my parents had one big bed. The hotel is very beautiful and reminds you of the location where you are (very near the Vatican). You can see the Vatican when you look out of your...

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.
