We were in the room "San Pietro", a very spacious, clean and quiet room with its windows on back side of the building. It was quiet most of the...

We spent 5 wonderful days in Rome. The hotel is in 4 minutes walk from the entrance to the Vatican, we could walk easily over the bridge to Trastevere. Ms. Rosanna and Francesco are kind, and friendly hosts, always ready to help. The room is clean, and one can sleep very good at night, there is no noise at all....

I stayed whilst travelling around Italy with a friend at Christmas and we could not have found a more perfect place. The location is great, the hosts Rosanna and Francesco are very warm, friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean and comfortable. I'm going back in a few weeks and really looking forward to it.

Very nicely situated hotel and friendly service. Location couldn't be better for a family with a young child. Steps away from the Vatican, but not in all the noise, you are also so close to the Tevere and the beautiful Ponte Sant'Angelo. There is also a playground just behind the Castello and usually a Merry-Go-Round that is sure to keep...

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.

“"San Pietro" or "Colosseo", "Trevi" has the windows on the street side of the building and might be louder.”
