My wife and I spent one romantic night here (a Smartbox present for our 25th anniversary) . We found the staff really polite and helpful. The room was charming, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was fine and with a lot of choices.

I have been there with my wife and our two kids, for a quick tour in San Peter square on our way to our home town (in the south of Italy).

Stayed here with my partner in April 2016. The positives are: its clean and modern with interesting decor. Its a short walk from the vatican and there are plenty of nice places to eat around the area which aren't tourist traps. The negatives: the room and bed were too small for two people. The bed was only slightly bigger than...

Nice and clean hotel close to the Vatican, 30 min ride by bus to Piazza Venezia and 10 min to Trastevere. The area has good restaurants and shops. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
