Our 1st visit to Rome, along with joining a Trafalgar tour, and this hotel was part of our package. We stayed for 3 nights and was very comfortable & welcoming. Location of the hotel is very central to the Vatican City and restaurants. Staff were very attentive and spoke fluent English. Rooms were very comfortable however with no air conditioning...

All was great. Poor breakfast, but you in Italy and this is no problem! Free parking is the good choice for locate a rental car. Additional tourist tips was sad, but it's normal in historical places and wasn't very big

Also very close to The Vatican, where we were visiting. Only 8 mins walk. Rooms very quiet with soundproof shutters. Only problem was the air con that didn't work....

This hotel had a clean (but small) room and bath, wi fi, and the hotel staff were very courteous and helpful The bar and breakfast restaurant were great to have on site, within very short walks to great restaurants and stores. It was great to have the A/C working even in mid october. I would recommend.

Even room service staff were very helpful and courteous. The rooms were clean and had modern amenities. All the still and mineral water you can drink. It is very close to the Vatican and nice restaurants just a block away.

Highly recommend - clean, nice bar staff, great breakfast, small but nice rooms, some have Vatican view. Taxi fares to places like Pantheon about €8. They will call taxis. English is understood. Way too early check-out, 10 a.m., but they will keep luggage as most places do. The name means the "Song or Canticle" of St Francis. This is a...

The history behind this hotel took me by surprise, I liked that. It's comfortable, quiet and has a nice view of the basilica on the rooftop. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast was very good!

This top quality hotel is tucked away in a back street in Rome with a rooftop view of St Peter's Basilica and the Vatican. The staff were most helpful and courteous and accommodated our every need/whim.

This was the first hotel on our Trafalgar Best of Italy tour. Located close to the Vatican. Hotel has a lovely bar with nice courtyard. Snacks and sandwiches available in the bar but are expensive. For something less expensive a short walk down a hill will take you to a small selection of places to eat. As we were part...
