I arrived late passed midnight on a Thursday night and was attended by Carlos at the front desk who was very accomodating in helping me with the bags to my room. The level of hospitality displayed at this hotel took me by surprise, even at that hour of the night. The room was very small, but fairly decent with a nice clean bathroom, television, cupboard, table, chair and a nice hard bed. Breakfast is very humble and basic, but nevertheless fresh and clean. The coffee served with milk, honestly, is one of the best I have had in Rome! From the hotel, it's only a 15 minute relaxing stroll to St Peters Square at the Vatican. From there, one can walk across St Peters Square to the main street from which there are more than six hop-on hop-off city tour buses to choose from, and would make an ideal base for anyone wishing to explore Rome. The security from St Peters Square to the San Pietro Hotel, whether walking at the early hours of the morning or even the late hours of the evening is very safe and peaceful. For dining, there isn't any restaurant within the hotel itself, but just outside the hotel there is this very decent Italian Restaurant which serves very decent Italian food and great tiramisu. Or one can even opt to walk right along the main street, across the metro station and there are more choices, including even an Indian and Chinese restaurant and numerous souvenir shops nearby. At the corner of the street to the right of the hotel, one can find a bank with international ATM facilities, just incase. All in, this makes for a great value for money hotel that is served by some very friendly and accomodating staff. I stayed in hotel for six nights from 22nd to 27th March, 2012 and will certainly return should I revisit Rome again!
