Hotel San Pietrino

Reviewed 19 September 2016

The location is situated in a good area, at a few minutes from Vatican and from Metro. The building is quite old style with marble and wood.
The stuff is very kind and ready to help.
We didn't enjoy, though, the fact that sometimes there was a bad smell in the bathroom. We had to buy a freshener so that we can get along with it.

This hotel is situated close (7 mins walk) to the Ottavino Metro. In a residential area, off-season it is quiet and very safe to walk from the Metro or the Vatican area. Google earth will show the area and using the 'Lemongrass Gelato' shop, I was able to locate it easily and pulled a suitcase. I didn't see any available taxi stand close by. The lift that serves all floors is old and narrow but worked efficiently - there would be a problem if it didn't as there are close to 200 steps to climb to the third floor. I had requested a room away from the elevator (it is outside the actual hotel) and away from reception and I was given the room closest to both, however there was little noise throughout my stay so this was not problematic. Check in was easy, I was expected and there was no insistence on paying the outstanding city tax for a few days. The room was spacious with a very large double bed, the furniture solid if a little old, and the bathroom with loo, shower, bidet, and wash-basin was modern, working well and finished with tile. Whilst the towels in this hotel have been critiqued as paper thin by others, they are not luxurious but sufficient for need. Free coffee (weird foam) was not to my taste, but the tea and hot chocolate were welcome. No orange juice available any morning before I left. Bed was made up everyday with one sheet change and towels changed almost everyday. Cleanliness was excellent. I was supplied with a map and some info that helped me initially. The Vatican Museum and Square are a 10 minute walk. Two buses (70 and 23) taking you to Plaza Navona area (Pantheon) and Trastevere areas respectively, stop a 5 minute walk away, turning right as you leave hotel and then left at T junction with a seat supplied. Note: coming back they take a slightly different route. There is a McDonalds close to the metro station with medium English spoke - handy for breakie as the cafes on the hotel street were not open. Couple of little convenience stores close by are also handy, but be careful with the one just around the corner from the hotel as he over-charges from marked price. A family (2 adults and 2 small kids) stayed in the room next to me for 2 nights and the noise levels seeped through as though I was in the same room. This and the noise of the doors would suggest that this could be a noisy place in the Summer season, but I found it ok as not at full capacity and I can sleep through noise. There was no DVD/CD player provided but may have been available on request and I didn't try the TV. I would recommend this as a very cheap option for a hotel Rome if you are on a budget and rate the location, cleanliness and safety as excellent.

We were two adults and a 7-year old boy in a three bed-room for 4 nights and we enjoyed much our stay. The hotel was clean and quite, the stuff friendly and for breakfast there is the the great bar Alfredo e Lia on the other side of the road or the little more modern bistro Luma near by. As a bar for drinking italian beers and eating great italian tappas we would recommend La Zanzara. We could walk to all sights, only to the Colosseum we used the underground for one way. From the Vaticano-stop of the bus-shuttle in Via Crescenzio (6 euro per person) it is an easy 15 minutes walk to San Pietrino.

We enjoyed staying at this hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is also near the Vatican and a short walk from the subway. The hotel was also pretty close to shopping and very good restaurants.

We were travelling with a little child so the priority was to find a quiet and peaceful hotel. SanPietrino was just what we wanted and with a reasonable price.

Hotel is located in Prati, which is a clean and apparently a safe neigborhood compared to many other parts of town. Close proximity to Vatican is a big plus and metro station Ottaviano is also close. With metro line A you can easily get to Termini train station and other metro stations close to old town and main sights.

We enjoyd Prati neigborhood a lot. There is many nice, non-touristy restaurants where you can find e.g. breakfast which is not included in room prices. We found a nice bakery on the way to Ottaviano station (Via Barletta street), where we picked up on-the-go breakfasts and tasty pastries every day.

There was a friendly homelike feeling in the hotel. You can have water and coffee for free, although we didn't really enjoy the overly foamy coffee. Rooms are uncommonly clean, but not too spacy.

We have been here for 4 nights, the room is very small but enough for me and my husband since we usually spend more time somewhere out than at the hotel. The hotel doesn't offer breakfast, it doesn't matter since just across the street there is a small bistro where you can find nice panini or some other pastry for breakfast. The best thing about San Pietrino is its location - very close to Metro station Ottaviano and also to Vatican. Price is fair. I recommend you to look for Roman restaurant according to Tripadvisor rating. The price is about the same but forgot this about the quality.
