Reviewed 12 February 2014

We stayed here as part of a Trafalgar travel group. The hotel was very clean and modern. The cappuccino and pastries were fabulous and CHEAP! Places to eat were within easy walking distance. The only downside was that the staff did not appear to be prepared for the number of guests for the brunch -- there just was not enough food available for the number of people. But what was there was good.

A modern hotel situated within a short walking distance from St. Peters. Clean rooms, comfy beds and free Wi-Fi. Food was excellent and staff always ready to assist. Cakes and desserts offered at the coffee bar - must be tried. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

The location could not be better. We were able to walk to Vatican City. You are only a few blocks from the Pope's apartment! It is a modern hotel. A great view, especially in the evening. We had drinks in the garden/patio area. It was very peaceful . I would recommend this hotel if you are in the area.

Clean rooms, nice view, comfy beds. Free WiFi in the lobby but as my room was located on the first floor, the signal was still detectable and strong. Excellent food and service at the restaurant, and I really liked the ambiance. Only downside was that the shower was clogged on the first night resulting in a bad bath. But housekeeping did a good job in attending to this issue.

Stayed at the beginning of Trafalgar Tour. Enjoyed our stay. Rooms were clean and bright and we enjoyed our stay. Free WIFI but only in lobby. Restaurant was very good. Service was excellent. Front desk called taxi for us and gave a receipt saying taxi name and time it would arrive.

This former nunnery is within walking distance to Vatican City. Surrounded by restaurants and shops, it is convenient, clean and modern. If you are looking for Italian charm, this is not the place for you. But if you want a clean, comfortable room in a hotel with modern amenities, and spectacular views, this is the place. A great coffee bar, decent food, and complimentary wifi made this hotel a great choice.

The only downside was the lack of sufficient air conditioning. Since the windows are without screens, the bugs could be problematic.

As part of a Trafalgar tour group, I did not choose this hotel, but would not hesitate to stay there again.

We stayed at this hotel at the commencement of our Trafalgar Tuscany & Rome tour in April 2013. The hotel was relatively new at that time,so everything was spic & span. The hotel sits atop a small hill & is within walking distance of the Vatican. The room was modern & adequate. There is a water dispenser in the common corridor(though we never learn to appreciate sparkling water). We had a welcome dinner at the hotel's restaurant - good food & wine. The hotel has a good selection of wines. Afterwards we adjourned for a good cup of cappuccino at the cafe. The breakfast was good. We went to the top floor & climbed the steel stairway to the rooftop & voila we got a good view of St.Peter's basilica dome. The hotel was a good start to our holidays.
