Hotel experience

Friendly staff; basic amenities in room, no tea, coffee facilities in room or iron or even hangers for clothing. Tea/ Coffee machine in lobby beyond lacking. Not value for money paid. Only redeeming feature, 5 mins walk from St Peter’s Square.

Stayed 5 nights in Mar 2018


The staff here were most helpful. The general look is great, the position is fantastic. There are however a number of things that could be improved and opportunities apparently missed. The less expensive rooms, certainly, could do with a facelift, both rooms we looked at had greasy marks above the beds where heads had rested although floors were clean, linen was good. There is a lovely cloistered garden but this can only accessed through the restaurant which has limited opening, seeming mostly to concentrate on weddings. If the restaurant was open for lunch and onwards I'm sure there would be plenty of covers.

Pros: Secluded garde, near to major sights

Cons: lovely building but very tired, needs decorating- access to lovely garden limited . Bar and garden need to be open all day for lunch etc

Location: Wonderful location, right on the doorstep of St Peters, near Castel d'Angelo.

4/5 Good

close to vatican city

well located, friendly staff and willing to help. however the wifi signal is very bad, sometimes it does not work and if the signal works it is weak, even the wifi signal is deficient in the hotel lobby. The other bad thing is that you have to create an account with your email to access the wifi signal. The other bad thing is the breakfast buffet, the selection is poor and little varied, you have no choice of hot dishes only limited to cereal, bread, hard-boiled egg, jams, cakes, coffee, orange juice.

Pros: location

Cons: wifi signal and speed and breakfast menu
