Great Bread and Breakfast.
Great place to stay. Helpful staff. Location was directly across the street from Vatican City wall, and access to Vatican City entrance was just a 20 minute walk away. Restaurants within walking distance, as well as grocery store. Missed not having a microwave or small fridge option though, as it seems they expect guests to meals (other than breakfast) out in restaurants. Otherwise, a very enjoyable place to stay. Am planning on staying there again on my next visit to Vatican City.

4/5 Good

A 25 Minute Walk to the Main entrance of Vatican
Be prepared to use stairs, if you are on the 3rd floor and to share bathroom. We had to wait outside for a while. Staff don't start till 8:00. I was told it was only 8 minute walk to the Vatican. Darlene was very nice and professional.

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
B&B opposite Vatican Gardens
Breakfast is prepared in the narrow corridor and served in your room or the garden. Place is good for an undemanding couple who are more interested in sightseeing than resting in a hotel. There is an excellent gelateria half way between B&B and Metro.

2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Disliked: Staff & service
One member of staff knew what they were doing
Lets start with the positives - the location is great. However I cannot recommend this hotel. Despite notifying the hotel when I was arriving (they contacted to ask me), when I arrived there was no one to check us in (at 2pm). The phone numbers listed on the gate were disconnected, except for one. Stranded outside we ended up in the garden of the proprietor for the building and eventually someone vaguely connected to the building let us in. This person apparently did not work for the hotel but had access to keys and took our money, without providing any receipt. On returning to the hotel, we went to the gate for 'Vatican Garden House' and could not gain access to the building. Again we phoned the number that worked, only to be told that the member of staff would 'try' to get to us in 20 minutes. When she arrived she treated us like idiots for going through the wrong door (which could have easily been resolved over the phone).The following morning we were expecting breakfast which never arrived. It was only by being opportunistic that we were able to find the helpful morning member of staff who apologised profusely and made us a special breakfast, she also agreed to accommodate us by preparing breakfast earlier for our day of departure so we could eat before leaving. So if you like hanging around next to a wall for over an hour and spending money on international calls then this is the place for you. However I will be going elsewhere when I next return to Rome
