Within 1 block of St Peter's. Nice selection of small restaurants and shops at the end of the block. Property is clean and quiet. Breakfast (included) is exceptional! Nice outdoor patio if the weather cooperates. All the staff are professional and helpful. This is my second stay at Hotel Bramante and I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

I went here with my daughter. Mother and daughter bonding.A very convenient. Near to Vatican and other tourist attraction and very near to souvenir shops and those people searching for leathers bags, shoes and jackets.The owner is very friendly . The hotel is very clean and comfortable. The best of all the breakfast. I really enjoyed my stay here.

Just stayed here for a few nights and was a great choice. Small, charming, clean hotel literally steps from the Vatican and close to other desirable parts of town. Helpful staff and nice breakfast included. Lots of good restaurants right around the hotel as well. The beds were a little hard, but besides that it was an excellent choice.

Hotel Bramante is a fantastic little hotel within a 3 minute walk to the Vatican. Nice open beam ceiling rooms in the main hotel and a very traditional apartment across the way. The staff are very helpful with all questions regarding places to go and eat. The apartment feels like a home where you can really feel to be a...

Rated 3 stars I think, but far exceeded my expectations. Our room was very nice indeed, the hotel staff were friendly and attentive to all our needs. I tried to speak Italian, tried, not overly well, however the lady serving us really accommodated my effort, tried to understand me, and made every effort to encourage me. Her English was also...

The hotel is small and family-run, very nice family, friendly and helpful. The rooms are charming, the bathroom somewhat dated, but lots of warm water after a while. The narrow street just by "the secret escape route" for the Pope, leading from the Vatican to San'Angelo is next to the hotel. The cobbled street is narrow, but with quite a...

I've stayed here on and off over the years and it is in a great location for the Vatican and the Prati area for shops and restaurants. However our room was small and dark, with noisy neighbours.

I've stayed at the Bramante on occasion. I must say that this hotel has gotten very dated. Not a very good value for the price. I checked in late and found a woman at the desk that could have cared less. She was very busy watching something on TV. It was sweltering and she gave us the absolute worse room...

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.
