“Very friendly!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2012

We stayed at this hotel from September 4th to the 7th and it was lovely! The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a triple room and it was roomy enough for us, big windows, air con, lovely clean bathroom and bedroom. The only downside was that there was no kettle in the room but there was coffee making facilities in the quaint breakfast/lounge room from 7.30am. The breakfast was lovely, croissants, French toast, bagels, juices. It is only a short walk from bus stops into the city centre and a few streets away from the Vatican. There are many little restaurants dotted all around the neighbourhood aswell. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling ti Rome on a budget, and would stay there again!

The hotel is barely 5 mins walk to St Peters and Vatican Museum. Colosseum and other attractions are easily accessible by train. The train station is around 8 to 10 mins walk.

I had the last room on the first floor. The room and the bathroom were very clean. The staff were exceptional and offer great help. For some reason the doonah was clean but it smelled funny. Not sure why. The traffic noise is a bit overpowering but this is no big deal since most hotels in a good location have this problem.

If you are looking for a clean, comfortable, reasonably priced hotel in a very central location, then this is THE place. The staff is exceptional, all friendly and helpful. There is plenty of hot water, AC, a small breakfast, and free computer use. It is located between St. Peter's and Castel Sant'Angelo and a 15 minute walk to Piazza del Popolo or Pizza Navona. There is a great shopping street (Cola di Rienzo) a block away and many good restaurants in all price ranges nearby. The metro, bus and city trains are all close at hand. I travel alone and I've always felt safe and never had a problem in Prati area. If you are looking for luxury then this is not the place for you, but if you want a clean, convenient, well run hotel try Hotel Prati. Ciao Fabio, Luigi, Franco 1 &2 .

Room Tip: Rooms are on the small side, but clean and quiet. Probably upper floors are best.

I stayed there with my family. Its a good hotel for the price. Location is excelent. its a 15 minutes walk to Piazza Navona, at the historic center and about 5 minutes to the Vatican. Close to good restaurants and to streets full of nice stores. But .... breakfast is less than ok. Air conditioning did not work well and the weather in Rome is really hot in July. Air conditioning should be working better, at least in my room it was very bad. So, the 2 stars.

My adult daughter and I stayed at Hotel Prati for 5 nights before joining a Mediterranean cruise.

The hotel is located several blocks-- a very easy walk-- from the Vatican. On our first night, we went for a walk for some gelato, turned around and there was the illuminated dome of St. Peter's! The hotel is about 5 blocks to the Ottaviano metro, so the location was an excellent starting point for daily touring.

The personnel are so helpful- arranging reservations, providing useful information, and were responsive to our requests. Housekeeping was great.

There's a lovely breakfast area with a coffee machine that allowed us to make our own coffee concoctions at whatever strength we needed.

Free internet computers and wireless access (even in our room-- I didn't realize I could google on my Kindle) allowed us to refine our daily touring plans.

It may be a 2 star hotel, but it's 5 stars to us.

Hotel Prati is close to St Peters which worked out great because we went to visit St Peters each day. The staff was very helpful, especially Fabio. The room was comfortable and a little small but this is not uncommon. We had an unpleasant experience with a taxi from the airport to the hotel. Fabio suggested we take the bus back. This was a great idea. The bus stop was 800m away and for 8 Euro to the airport, we could not have been happier. Breakfast was fine - pastries and coffee or hot chocolate. The hotel even had computers in a common room which was much appreciated.

Just returned from a fantastic stay in Rome and Hotel Prati was part of our fabulous vacation experience. From the moment we arrived and our name and keys were greeted at the front desk, Luigi, Franco and the staff made us feel so welcome and at home. The room was a little small but no different from other European hotels, it was perfect for my family with a bunkbed and a queen size. We woke to free breakfast and excellent Cappuccinos downstairs courtesy of the hotel. Luigi paid special attention to my children by holding donuts for them for the next day. We even got discounts to the local restaurant with amazing authentic food and pizza. The location of the hotel was perfect too because you could walk to all the major attractions or hop on the Metro or buses. It literally was 2-3 blocks away from Vatican City and we were there for the Easter festivities. What an experience! For the price, location and service you cannot go wrong. Luigi and Franco, thank you for all of your help and a wonderful experience! We will be back again to Hotel Prati in the future!
