This has got to be the best kept secret in Rome. A small hotel 10 steps (literally) from St. Peter's Square. For those going to the Vatican this is absolutely the best place to stay. The staff are wonderful. They bend over backwards to meet your needs. The price is amazing. We paid 124€ for the night. The room was clean, well decorated & ample for our needs (myself & my husband). There is a small terrace from where you can see St Peter's & close enough to participate in the Sunday Angelus from there. Breakfast was included and offered a wide variety - meats, cheeses, cereals, croissants, juices, fruit, scrambled eggs & bacon, breads ... the list goes on. There is a bar on the same floor of the terrace that is open from 4pm to midnight. I know a lot of people complained about the size of the room but I really feel they exaggerated. You don't go to Rome to stay in the hotel all day. We were not cramped at all. Really, if you want a great place to stay, go to Residenza Paolo!
- 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
