Vatican View was difficult to recognize at first, but the cab driver knew where to go. We were welcomed by friendly English speaking Daniel & Allesandra. After check in Daniel took our luggage 8 steps to the elevator and showed us to our very modern and comfortable room. As a middle aged couple we were pleasantly surprised. Location was perfect . So close to The Vatican & St Peter's Square. We did a tour of The Vatican and were able to walk to the meeting point. Also walking distance from great shopping and many many sidewalk bars and restaurants. We walked to the sightseeing "hop on hop off" bus stop at St Peter's Square and were able to go all over town, see what we wanted and get dropped off back near our hotel. We spent one evening in the rooftop lounge which was very pleasant, with special attention from Daniel. Fabio was very helpful in printing off our vouchers & making phone calls to Italian speaking tour organizers for us. All in all a very personal friendly stay that we recommend highly and will remember for a lifetime. Thanks guys it was awesome.
