“Second trip”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

This was our second pleasure trip to Rome and we returned to the Atlante Star. We were not disappointed. Location is the best for Vatican visits and other trips thru the historic parts of this great city.
Plenty of great restaurants nearby from expensive to moderate, but all good.
The staff of the hotel is very accomidating. The rooms are a little small but the location of the hotel makes up for it.
Its a little expensive but worth the money.
I would pick the Atlante Star again.

I have been going to this hotel for years and feel like I am going home every time I am there. It is nice to have people remember you and the other people you were traveling with and ask about them. They also go out of the way to do little things for you to make your stay extra special.
The location is perfect - and I never get tired of the amazing view of the Vatican while sipping my cappuccino in the morning. I feel as if I am in the middle of a postcard. You are truly in the heart of Rome!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Vatican if possible.

It was by no means 4 star hotel. It started with "complimentary" airport shuttle that was not there when we arrived to FCO. Had to make 2 calls and waited 40 minutes for a driver, after being reassured about "5 min" wait. Once at the hotel, small entrance and tiny dark and dirty lobby. The room that they checked us in, I believe number 101 was small and disgusting. Overall room and bathroom quality and cleanliness was very poor, entire room had a feeling and touch of not being updated or cleaned for 20+ years. It was really the first time during extensive travel when we decided not to stay there, and checked out immediately. It took us very short time to find an awesome, clean and updated hotel in the same area - Michelangelo for slightly more, and had a wonderful 4 nights Rome experience. Believe me- we could not have nice experience if stayed at Hotel Atlante Star. Stay away from it, they need to change rating to "One star". It was very helpful to have trip insurance from Expedia that paid for first night of "penalty" of not staying at that terrible place.

Room Tip: I am curious if they have updated rooms, but ours I believe number 101 was scary.

Had an amazing time. The hotel was perfect and had some amazing views from the roof of the Vatican and all around. Beautiful sunsets while eating in the roof top restaurant. Staff and rooms were wonderful. Would love to come back here again and have recommend this hotel to everyone I know.

I just had to review this hotel as it was amazing! My partner and I have just come back from a long weekend here & I was amazed. The room we had wasnt very big but just enough for us as we were hardly in there anyway! It was traditional and very clean (with sky in the room). My absolutely favourite part was the roof terrace over-looking the Vatican & a lot of Rome! We'd go back and definately stay here purely for the view! Staff excellent & happy to help, very professional, rooms cleaned daily, very smart hotel! The airport pick up was a bit of a wait (1hr) as our flight was early but coming back was great!- took about 25/30 mins!
The hotel is 5 minutes from the Vatican and another 5 to the river. Within walking distance for alot of amazing sights!

I'll always love this hotel because my partner also proposed to me on the roof terrace & it was like something out of a film!! Thanks Atlante Star!

I stayed in this hotel in 2011. It is ideal for Vatican City and its very close to the metro station. Rooms are slightly on the small side but everyone was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel

Booked a long weekend here chosen for its close proximity to St Peter's and the Vatican and other major sights.
Arrived Friday afternoon only to be told overbooked? would have to stay in sister hotel 500m away for first night. Do not come on a Friday as most hotels change over on Saturdays.
room in Atlante Garden tired but very noisy next to busy main road. Staff fine. Continental breakfast good. charged 6 euros city tax?
Atlante Star the next day quieter, staff not as friendly, had booked a superior room, tiny at the back of the hotel.
Bathroom laughable for a supposedly 4 star hotel. Only a half sized bath, toilet that when you sat on it your knees had to go under the sink.
Breakfast fine, view from terrace stunning.
Pros near to sights. shuttle from airport but 40 euros to return.
Cons awful tiny room and bathroom laughable, 6 euros a night city tax? staff unfriendly.
Tired decor.

Room Tip: Stay in another hotel.
