What a great find! This is an adorable 23-room musically-themed hotel near the Vatican. Big, comfy bed, great shower, very clean property with super-friendly staff. The breakfast buffet is lovely as well.

Nice and clean hotel close to the Vatican, 30 min ride by bus to Piazza Venezia and 10 min to Trastevere. The area has good restaurants and shops. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast choice was limited but all the products came from local producers. Also the breakfast space is rather tight but there are several tables...

The hotel itself is an amazing location, it's 10 minutes from the metro. Also we walked to the Vatican, it's not far. The staff are all lovely and friendly. They keep your key while you are out, and there is a staff member at reception 24/7. I've seen bad reviews about the breakfast although for the price it looked okay....

I was able to book the room direct with the hotel. Reception was very helpful and they all spoke good English. They can book tours and taxis to the airport. The breakfast was typical Italian with a good selection. It is possible to sit outside the back of the restaurant if the weather is OK.
