My daughter and I stayed at Vatican View during a quick trip to Rome recently. We both LOVED it. We arrived early after a long flight from Australia and Alessandra was brilliant - friendly, efficient, and told us everything we needed to know from where to get coffee and what to see first. (Not to leave out Daniel and Fabio, and the cleaning staff, who were also brilliant and very friendly!).

The location couldn't be better, we could easily get everywhere we wanted to, and being so close to St Peter's gave us the luxury of being able to go several times and really take our time with each visit to St Peter's and the Vatican.

The room was great - spacious, always clean and had everything we could have wanted.

We didn't want to leave, and we will definitely be coming back - after all, we threw a coin into the Trevi Fountain!

Alessandra is a very pleasant receptionist who treated us with the utmost kindness and her smile was efficacious throughout our stay. All the staff (Daniel and Fabio) were extremely helpful with all our needs. The location is ideal for not just Vatican/St Peter touring, but we were close to the Ottaviano station which goes directly to the Termini. The rooms are very classy, very clean and stylish. We found this hotel to be very economical and full service. We had quite relaxed and would not hesitate to stay here again! Great looking terrace!

Vatican View was the perfect hotel for us. Our room (deluxe double) was spacious, comfortable and clean. Each room comes with a mini fridge. The hotel provides complimentary water, tea, coffee, and breakfast type snacks in the room. The staff is incredible. We mostly dealt with Daniel and Alexandra. They were so nice and went out if their way to help us with restaurant recommendations, directions, tips, ordering a taxi, printing our tickets. They were always happy and smiling! On the top if this hotel is a roof top terrace. Twice we went up with our other friends who stayed here, as well, and shared a bottle of wine. Beautiful views. This place is outstanding!!

When we found out how close we are to the St Peter's Square, our jaws dropped. We walked to the Vatican Museum tour entrance the first morning in 5 minutes. Wednesday I walked over to the Square, and the Pope was holding his weekly general audiences. What a thrill to be there when he was only 10 feet away from me in his Pope mobile. Around the hotel, there are cafés, restaurants, we even found the best Thai massage place just around the corner from the hotel and went twice.

The room is modern, clean, efficiently decorated and comfortable, what else can a tourist ask for? The staff members from the office manager, to cleaning crew and everyone are friendly and courteous. The price? very reasonable for a big city. I will definitely go back there and highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Rome. I wish they have franchise in other European cities.

This was our first visit to Rome and we couldn't have picked a better hotel, the room was beautiful and the location was ideal. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and made you feel as if the hotel was your home. I hope to return and will be staying here again and will be recommending the Vatican View to family and friends

We have just spent 4 nights in this hotel and have to say it was absolutely amazing. The staff are wonderful, the location is amazing and it is decorated beautifully. The roof top terrace is another added bonus and was amazing to sit up there have some wine and just enjoy the views. We intend to go back to Rome and we won't even bother looking at other hotels! It was a home from home and deserves recognition for this!
