If you want to be by the Vatican, stay here.
It is literally across the street from the Vatican Museum entrance.
To go to St. Peter's Square takes about five minutes, just follow wall from museum to the square.
It is between two metro stops on the red line. Ottaviano metro stop was our choice. It is four blocks from the hotel. Day and night, we felt safe walking the area.
Rooms: Huge for Europe. Huge.
Tile throughout room and bath.
Bath: Bring your toiletries. Don't think American hotels. Bring everything you need. (Hair dryer is only item in bath.)
Towels: Really good shape (not hotel worn). Note for Americans, know that you will not get wash clothes in Italy. Anywhere.
For the Brits: There is no kettle in the room.
Frig: In room. Good size. Empty so you can use (not a minibar). It actually has a few drinks in it to start for free. Like six drinks. Nice touch in case you arrive late and need something cold that night or to start the next morning right out of bed.
Noise: We were on opposite side from Vatican so noise not an issue. You do hear through the windows. If light sleeper, request this side of hotel.
WIFI in room: Okay.
Breakfast: Left before started although they pulled us croissants and coffee early to go!
Staff: All encountered super nice and extremely helpful with great attitudes. Big plus.
This is not a luxurious hotel. Bare actually. Clean. Simple needs covered to sleep and bath. The hotel wins on location. Hands down.
Great value for large, clean room with WIFI, breakfast, wonderful staff & the Vatican next door.
