You really Cannot beat this location.Why stay in the extremely noisy centre of Rome when instead you can be the neighbour of his holiness the pope.My wife and i had a fantastic stay in a superior room, which is worth the extra expense .Having a separate exclusive entrance, to the floor, and high quality finish adds to the overall experiance.Breakfast is very good, a selection of cold food, along with hot bacon, and scrambled eggs, fruits , and pastries .The terrace over looks the basilica, and you have a front row view to one of the most worlds most religious sites, with the added benefit of being able to order a glass of vino , whilst deciding where to eat.We were extremely lucky to see the pope 3 times in 3 days, which was never a plan but did and can happen if are flexible , and willing to be part of the party, even managed to attend an intimate mass.The main historical sites are also within walking distance, and you do not need to take the metro , if you prefer to take in the feel of the city.Rome reminded me of London which oozes history, and a 20 min walk from the hotel is manageable .We found the staff to be very friendly, could not do enough for us, recommending near by resturants, which there are many near by, and NOT expensive.The hotel is best described as a boutique chic hotel, we would defiantly go back to Rome, and we would not stay at any other hotel.Finally if you do decide to stay, pay the extra money, even though you are not in your hotel long, it is best to remember the stay in a positive light, and not be disappointed with a small room.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
