Lovely family owned hotel since 1873 but the building goes back to the 14th century. Just 200m from St Peter's, so full of character and charm, but still contemporary and clean. My friend and I had a twin room up one flight of stairs (European 2nd floor). Our window opened to a courtyard just outside our door. Room was everything...

Will definitely be staying here again. I spent about 3 weeks there in spring 2014. Great base for exploring Rome. 2 blocks from the Vatican. Super nice staff, and the owners were friendly as well. Breakfast was so good! I love the room that I stayed in- at the top and had a lovely view of the courtyard. I had...

We stayed in this hotel in October 2014 and rented two rooms, a king and a single. Everything about the hotel was just as great as the last time we visited in 2009 Massimo and his wife are the owners and offer a very comfortable 4 star experience every time, although the hotel is rated 3 stars. This may be...

This is a really great small hotel near the Vatican that is family owned & operated. Great room (#12) that felt quite spacious with a bed and a couch. Very small bathroom with a tiny shower. Attentive and friendly staff. Only stayed one night, but would certainly stay again when in Rome on the Vatican side of the city. Very...

After our first stay we had high expectations. Our second visit did not let us down. The Bramante Hotel has traditional charm, and it has been family owned and operated for more than a century. It is tucked away on a small street between Via della Conciliazione and Borgo Pio. The walk to St. Peters takes about five minutes. Apart...

Hotel Bramante is a wonderful, family-owned and -run hotel. We spent three nights there recently during our first visit to Rome, and were thrilled with the hotel itself, its location and especially the hospitality of our hosts. Hotel Bramante is located on a quiet street about 3 blocks from St. Peter's and Vatican City, and right around the corner is...

Eight Andico (Antico) cousins travelled to our homeland San Valentino in Abruzzi, in June, 2014. Of course we were going to visit Rome also. Our trip was based around the availability of the Hotel Bramante. My brother had stayed there 15 years ago and insisted this is where we had to stay in Rome. He was so right. From the...

Lonely Planet's guide book says of this hotel,"Within a stone's throw of St. Peter's Basilica, the timeless elegance of this historic hotel matches the charm of the surrounding streets," and later,"Fashions change but class remains and this hotel is nothing if not classy." We wholeheartedly concur. I can only add that the staff here are real sweethearts and extremely professional....

Our family trip to Rome was made even more spectacular because we stayed at Hotel Bramante. The staff is so friendly and accomodating. The breakfast is delicious. The rooms were comfortable with AC and flat screen TVs. We loved sitting out on the terrace sipping wine and looking through the day's pictures. A short walk from St. Peter's square, we...

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.
