“Very central if a bit dated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2013

This hotel is very close to the Vatican walls and about half a kilometer from the river. We booked it because of the complementary airport pick up, we were the only ones in the coach and they were standing waiting for us, brilliant! Hotel is nice if a little dated, furnishing are something from the 1970's. Staff are friendly in a Roman aloof way! The roof garden is simply stunning with 360 degree views over the City and a magnificent view of the Dome of St Peters. We booked a slot on the shuttle bus to the airport, €40 for 2, but the times are inflexible so we jumped in a cab which has a fixed fare of €50.

This is a good hotel, rooms are small but you expect that, air con didn't work but in late November this was no big deal, high summer and you would bake!!

Room Tip: Some rooms are very small, beware!

The central location was superb, breakfast was generous and the view of Vatican City from the breakfast room was amazing. Their taxi order service was magical, a 4-30 am call to the taxi company produced a friendly driver in a car within 5 minutes!!!

Room Tip: Our room was on the opposite side of the building from the street and was very quiet.

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!
