The hotel is around 15 min from the Vatican. The reception is open only few hours a day and the second reception is open more time but it's 10min away from there. You need to have 3 keys to open the doors and reach your room. In the room you will not find a plug to charge your phone/video camera....

This place is one to avoid at any cost. After a long flight, we had to wait for hours to get the room type we booked and paid for. The management were confrontational, unwilling to help and told lies. On the web sites it seems like a nice place, but believe you me......Just look at it on the web, and...

There was a huge lack of communication between management and staff. The hotel is separated into three different locations. The rooms are in two buildings close by and then reception is about a good 5-7 blocks away. They have a "reception" in one of the buildings but the girl doesn't arrive to work until 3pm so if you want to...

I will never in my life stay at this place ever again! Was a terrible way to end our honeymoon! We arrived and it was as if they did not expect us. Waited long to get keys to the room and eventually they said that the room is not ready after waiting for nearly an hour. They then sent us...

Breakfast was rather simple, which is quite normal for Italian hotels. Location is very convenient. Owners were friendly and helpful; we could store our luggage for a couple of hours in a secured room. Arriving late in the night was not a problem.

The hotel is localized in a good spot if you're hanging out at the Vatican a lot, a bit far from Rome's main attractions. Room is average, there's no one at the reception at any point in time, there's just a woman who comes and goes, wifi is horribly slow, I would recommend it to someone who doesnt care much...

Not a hotel is apparently someone who rents rooms, all is that is near the metro, but comes and people are slow to leave, for a while waiting at the door when we arrived we were taken to another building, it was raining we dip much. Breakfast is the most filthy I've seen in Europe. All the old yesterday and...

We chose this place because it was quite cheap and close to metro station. We arrived here at about 7:00 pm and there was no one inside. It took about half an hour before anyone showed up and let us in - we stood there in the rain waiting for anyone to let us in. And it was just the...

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.
