The hotel is a good 10 minute walk to the metro station and only about 3-4 minutes to the Vatican. I stayed for 5 days. The room was clean, the sheets clean and the water hot. TV was all in Italian. My biggest problem was that internet was only available on the 5th floor solarium (outside patio) area. The hotel is in an old building and does not own all the rooms on each floor. There are apartments on some floors and even a business or two. So, the internet is only available on their 5th floor patio. It was pretty funny seeing people outside in 40 degree temperatures (I stayed in December) just to use the internet.
The Castel Santo Angelo is a minute away though. The price was okay, but there were not many extras, like breakfast. There was soap, shampoo and towels, so that was fine as well.
As long as it is understood that you do not have wifi available in your room, then go ahead and stay.
"Lovely Hotel, only metres away from the vatican!"
Really lovely hotel only a stone throw away from the vatican. Lovely staff in both the hotel and their restaurant. Room and general decor adds a hint of style and elegance to your stay for a very budget friendly experience.
The room was small but very clean with everything you need including a kettle. The towels very white and soft. The bathroom a little dated but also kept clean.
The staff are very friendly and helpful and seem genuinely happy to help in anyway.
I would recommend this b&b and I would definitely stay here again.
The hotel was in reasonably close to all the locations we wanted to visit. One block away from hotel there is bus you can take to take metro or you can use the hotel shuttle that drops you off in two location; one drop-off is walks from vatican museum and the other is in Piazza Naova. The hotel room is clean and bright; the breakfast buffet is great. Staff from front desk to Shuttle guy are really helpful in addressing our concern and questions. Overall our Stay at the Hotel was pleasant.
Lovely hotel right next to the Vatican. The staff on reception were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was very clean and modern. Lots of facilities provided for breakfast and nice toiletries provided in the bathroom. The only downside was the walls were paper thin, we had quite loud neighbours in the room next to us but it didn't ruin our stay. Would 100% recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to stay near the Vatican, it is a long walk to the city centre but we didn't mind that, or you could always grab a taxi!

A very friendly hotel, staff are always welcoming, acknowledging you whenever you were on your way in or way out of the hotel. Comfortable rooms, which provide just enough space for guests, with comfortable beds.
The breakfast buffet provides a wide range of goods, so there is something for everyone, in some cases it wasn't to my taste but overall it was of a very good standard,
The hotel is in a good location, very convenient for sight seeing as well as getting to public transport for longer journeys.
The world's smallest country, Vatican City is dominated by St Peter's, Christendom's largest church. Michelangelo's humbling 'Pietà' and his Sistine Chapel ceiling frescos are among the world's greatest works of art. The Aurelio area is named after the ancient Via Aurelia, the main road that connected Rome with Spain, and is convenient for visiting the city's sights.
