Nice hotel within walking distance to Vatican

Posted May 18, 2014
Pros: I liked the location, the cleanliness, and coffee machine and coffee. Helpful girl who took us to our room.
Cons: If possible, and I realize it might not be, please put some kind of sign out in front of the apartment building which the guest house is located in.
Location: Within walking distance of Vatican Museum. Rather a long walk, but doable.
Pro: Very nice room. GREAT coffee machine and coffee in the little kitchen.Within walking distance to Vatican. Con: Very hard to find. This guest house is in 2 apartment buildings, no sign in front, except for about a 1" doorbell sign along with all the other tenants of the buildings.

Nice place to stay in Rome.

We were very happy with everything except for the bed which was not terribly comfortable. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The price was very good - make sure you do a food and wine tour at the start of your trip!

Great room and Great location

Posted Sep 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
The room was lovely, with a balcony overlooking the inner courtyard. The location was literally across the street from the Vatican!! You are in an apartment with other guest rooms, each with own bathroom, just like a hotel. There is a common area, which is the kitchen, which is stocked with water, juice, coffee, tea, packaged pastries and cereal. The hosts were warm and welcoming and helpful, I would definitely recommend.

A warm and friendly welcome

Posted Sep 24, 2013
Pros: The flexibility and freedom of the arrangements for self catering and for access to the room.
Cons: Needed a bit more storage space for clothes.
Location: 5-10 minutes walk to St Peter's Square and the Vatican. Some good restaurants. Recommend walk to Gianocolo along the ridge, great views accross Rome
We received a pre-arrival informative email and a warm welcome on arrival. It is a self catering arrangement with everything provided for a simple breakfast. All very neat and clean. Very convenient for the Vatican and with easy bus access or a healthy walk! to the rest of Rome.

Guesthouse near the Vatican

Posted Aug 25, 2013
Perfect location near to the Vatican. Clean, tidy and all that is needed for a two day stay in Rome. Emelia, the owner, couldnt have been more helpful and speaks perfect English for those who know no Italian! Ciao

5 out of 5 for Sotto La Cupola! Emilia organised a pick up service to and from Rome Fiumicini Airport even though our flight was changed and was coming in at 11:30pm! Wonderful great service, room was well kept and food always stocked. No task too big or too small for Emilia. She was readily available before and ring the trip. 10 minute walk to the Vatican, I couldn't have asked for more. Definitely would visit again.

Nice but not as advertised

Posted May 19, 2013
Pros: Clean, very hospitable
Cons: A room in a small apartment.
Location: Very convenient
This is not a hotel. Nor is it a guest house. You basically get one room in a two room apartment in a regular residential building. Had we known this we wouldn't have booked - for the same price you can rent a full apartment in the locality. That said, the hospitality was excellent.
