I've had a wonderful stay at Best Vatican B&B. The room was well furnished, despite being a little small. The breakfast was awesome and served at the bedroom. The staff was extremely helpful and I will definitely consider staying there again the next time I travel to Rome.

Simply the best...in my time, I have spent a couple of visits at 5 star hotels...This place rivals those...without the price! Breakfast was great. Place is close and accessible to main area and Vatican City.

First, be sure to provide them very specific times you will be arriving well in advance of your trip. We did not do this as specifically as we should have and had trouble once in the area connecting to be let in. Once in though, very clean rooms-modern style, plenty of room and comfortable. Light sleepers, you will hear others...

We reserved 3 rooms for 3 couples, we were told to pay a 30% deposit prior to arriving which is not mentioned on the tripadvisor website. Upon arrival we were asked to pay the full amount - only after showing the confirmation email from them that we had paid the 30% deposit we were told - oh - the property...

My boyfriend and I spent a lovely week-end in Rome, we stayed at Best Vatican for 2 nights, finding out a nice and clean room, comfortable bed and excellent breakfast directly served in our room!!! The staff is really nice. The subway station is near the b&b and we reached out the Center of the city in about 10 minutes!...

I stayed here for my last night in Rome and it was just so-so. The building was not marked with any signs (not that I was expecting a huge billboard but a little sign would have been helpful). I stood outside for a good 10 minutes ringing the bell/intercom but no one answered. I finally had to call the other...

If you don't have a European cellphone or you need onsite help to make dinner or museum reservations, this is not the place for you. Nice rooms and a great location, but we spent a lot of money using our North American cellphones. Breakfast foods were very limited -- some fresh fruit would have been an improvement over the packaged...

Pros - the bed and breakfast is a short walk to the Vatican and one block from the metro. The rooms are very clean, stylish, and confortable. Access to WIFI was also a huge plus. Cons - the day I arrived the intercom was broken and I could not get in. When finally I did gain entry by calling another...

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.

“All the rooms to the front are slightly more noisy than those to the back but they certainly are not anywhere near a nuisance level. Two elevators mean there is no climbing of stairs unless you want to”
