Certificate of Excellence
The Residenza Paolo VI, established on the premises of an Augustinian Monastery, was inaugurated at the beginning of the Holy Year 2000. The genius loci and the charm of tradition, still alive in its ancient walls, make this property your "private" haven in Rome, far away from chaos, in the pulsing heart of the Eternal City. Rome has many hotels, but only one of them is located directly on St. Peter's Square (Vatican): Residenza Paolo VI, the ideal place for those wishing to stay in the heart of Christendom, close to St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Grottoes, the Necropolis, St Peter's and Saint John Paul II's tombs, the Vatican Gardens and St. Angel's Castle. Walking along the Vatican Wall, it's easy to reach the Vatican Museums and visit the famous Sistine Chapel. Furthermore, some of our rooms offer special view of the Holy Office or of the internal courtyard of the ancient monastery or even of St. Peter's Dome. From our magnificent Terrace it is possible to admire up close St. Peter's Basilica and the Apostolic Palace, exactly where the Holy Father Pope Francis appears to bless the faithful and to recite the Sunday Angelus.

Have been at the Residenza many times, each time I love it more. Incredibly located, a stone throw away from the Vatican and so convenient to restaurants, shopping, concerts and museums. Rooms are true European Elegance and very clean. Very quiet, great Italian Breakfast, good

We spent a week in Rome and opted to avoid all the large hotels. Residenza Paolo V1 is directly on St Peter's square established on the premises of an Augustinian Monastery. If you are wishing to immerse yourself in everything Vatican this is the place to stay, delightful

We were relocated into the Residenza Paolo VI Hotel and were very glad from the minute we arrived. Originally, we booked into the Palazzo Cardinal Cesi right on Via della Conciliazione, the straight avenue that leads straight into St. Peter’s Square and that faces St. Peter’s

As we were getting close to this hotel in our taxi I realized just how close to St. Peter's Square we were going to be. When we pulled up the entrance I literally said "holy crap" when I saw that we were just across the street from it. It couldn't be better located. The

Absolutely wonderful small hotel in Vatican City. Hotel is spotless. Rooms are small but had enough room for two sisters traveling with way too much stuff! The bathrooms are spacious. Visiting the outdoor patio overlooking the Vatican is a destination in itself. So gorgeous

I'd add the hop on hop off stops are pretty widely spaced around Rome so you'd probably expect a bit of a walk anywhere you stay. However, you'd be only 5 minutes from the Coliseum and the Hop on Hop off stop is right at the entrance to the Capitoline Hill.

I think you should contact the hotel directly. We were in a deluxe room (the one overlooking the colonnade at St Peter's) and did not think it was small. The bathroom was very big, with a toilet, bidet and walk-in shower but no bathtub.

"Room with a view, it's worth it"
"Every room is quiet since the hotel occupies floors 3-5, so you cannot go wrong."
"Pretty much any room here should be OK. Size of room needs to be carefully selected if more than one or two guests.,"
"they do have triples, which was nice for us traveling with three boys."
