Needs a good scrub

Posted May 23, 2014 on Hotels.com
I chose this hotel as I have stayed here before in 2008 and had a lovely stay, but was a bit disappointed this time round. The room was tiny and had no cupboard so we lived out of our suitcase on the floor for 3 days and the tiniest bathroom could have been cleaner. Although both ladies very very helpful and friendly we didn't discuss departure and as we were leaving on Sunday at 6am and know the downstairs gate would be locked took our key but had nowhere to leave it once outside. Little outside postbox would have solved this. The location is excellent and short minute to Pizza de Popolo and even shorter to Lepanto metro station so access to all tourist site was ideal. We drove to Rome which I would never do again and the one parking space we found was more by luck. The parking system is painful so would not recommend a car in Rome even just for arriving and departing like we did. Still undecided if I would stay in this hotel again, maybe after a scrubdown I would reconsider.

Loved Residenza Vaticana! Clean and comfortable - great breakfast. Quiet neighborhood, walking distance to many shops and restaurants, close to the metro and bus stops. So nice to come back to after a long day visiting the sites. Highly recommend!

Too small

Posted Oct 14, 2013
Pros: The quant Italian B&B charm.
Cons: The breakfast area. It served as reception and check-in/check-out area. It too was very small with a meager offering of breakfast food.
Location: The location was good.
Our room was too small. We had a double room (double bed) that did not allow two grown adults to pass each other on either side of the bed. One person would have to move to allow the other to get by. The space at the foot of the bed was not much better; however, two people could actually pass on another.

Great Neighborhood. Close to Vatican.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. The room was nicely furnished, and the staff was very nice. Breakfast was included, and the cappucino machine makes a great cappucino!. Wi-Fi is free, but my room was furthest so I sometimes had to sit in the lobby are to use it, but that is ok. I had the same experience with every hotel i visited throughout Europe. The day we arrived it was early and the room wasnt ready yet, but the staff was expecting us, and had let the doorman know. He should us up to the B&B and we were ok to leave our bags and go explore while the room was prepared. My wife and I walked to St. Peters and found it quite close. The neighborhood is really nice, with restaurants and stores, and I felt very safe. Every morning our rooms were cleaned and the staff always greeted us with a smile. I have to say that the lady who clens the rooms, im sorry I dont recall her name, works very, very hard. I applaud her and the stff for making our stay in Rome memorable. We are already planning a return in December 2013 with the whole family. On a side note, getting to the hotel from the airport was easy. Their are coach buses from the airport for about 6 to 10 euro each person which will deliver you to Termini station which is the main Subway / train station. From there you can hope the subway 5 or 6 stops to Lepanto station and walk a few blocks to the hotel.
