Dear AnBe1986, Thank you for the nice review :) we're happy to know that your stay was good also thanks to us! I'm very sorry about the inconvenience of the heating, I don't know what's happened, but I will investigate about it. Maybe there was a technical problem because the heating is always good, sometimes we have clients who ask...

The service in the hotel was a extremely friendly and room modern, clean and comfortable. The terrace is a very nice extra. The location is only a short walk away from the Vatican, which comes in handy if you want to get a early start and beat the lines. We can only recommend this hotel.

If you are going to visit the Vatican, stay here. You can see St. Peter's dome from their beautiful roof terrace. Daniel their staffer was a huge help. I loved my room, in particular the beautiful bathroom with a huge soaking tub. It was just what I needed.

We chose the hotel for its location and based upon the great reviews. Upon our very early arrival, we received a warm welcome, a map and left our luggage before heading out for some sightseeing.

Many options to stay in Rome, however finally, our choice to stay in Relais Vatican View Hotel was proven as the best decision in order to explore Vatican. Stay 2 nights there. Arrived at 9 am, we still have time to catch up Mass with Pope, due to its proximity 3 minutes walk from St Peter Square. Back from mass,...

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighbourhood Profile
Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighbourhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighbourhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.

From some rooms you can admire the colonnade that surrounds the piazza, take in the majesty of St. Peter's cupola and also listen to the pope while he gives his sunday blessing. St. Peter's basilica is the largest church in the world and the centre of the roman catholic faith. Its immense square always gives off an amazing aura at every religious event. A visit to the nearby Vatican Museums, Castel Sant'Angelo and the characteristic roads surrounding this area will provide your trip with the complete satisfaction you are looking for. ... more   less
