Nice hotel 5min. walk to the Vatican
Posted Aug 20, 2016
Trianon Borgo Pio is a great hotel. It's only a 5min. walk to the Vatican and close to public transportation. There are a bunch of restaurants nearby and in front of the hotel is a little supermarket which is convenient to buy some food if you want to do your own cooking in the hotel.
Our room was a standard apartment: 2 rooms, a bathroom and a full kitchen (with oven, microwave, fridge, full kitchen supplies). The temperature was comfortable and it was quiet, so we were able to sleep well during the night. The wi-fi was working, although a bit slow.
The only bad thing that happened during our stay is that the air conditioner was leaking in the master bedroom (which was placed on top of the door), and you can hear it drip during the night. We had to place a bunch of towels on the floor so that it would absorb the water. We told the front desk a couple of times. They told us to remind them in the morning at 8:30 and to stay with the person who's going to fix the air conditioner to make sure it's fixed. The problem we had with that is that we would usually leave early to tour around, and also we didn't want to waste a day in the hotel. At the end, we just let the issue go and just asked for a bunch of towels.
Other than that one issue, the hotel is in a great location, very clean, and the staff were very nice.
