This little gem has a perfect location a few blocks from the Vatican, close to the metro, shopping and bustling street life! Clean, comfortable, air conditioned. Breakfast included. The highlight is the friendly and helpful proprietors. I will be recommending this hotel to everyone!

We chose this BnB mainly for the price and location. We didn't expect five star amenities as the price we paid is quite lower as per market standards, but it didn't disappoint. We got what we paid for and more. The people at the "reception" were very warm and accommodating, special mention to Jessica, who allowed us to check-in at... More

The rooms were good, had basic amenities and air conditioned. Breakfast was provided inside the room and it has private bathrooms too, so overall very good for the price. The staff is also very friendly and helpful, they will provide you with inside guide and tips on visiting the sight-seeing spots.

First of all, the location is great, walking distance (5 min) to Saint Petro´s cathedral and to Vatican Museum. Easy to find hotel, I arrived to Termini station and from there I took the metro to the Ottaviano stop, Vía Ottaviano is just at the exit of the metro, and from there find number 43. It is a very safe... More

Nice location (5 min walking distance to St. Peter) to all Rome attractions and close to metro station. Cheap (according to averange Rome prices). Clean. Relatively quite. No reception (You have to plan very accurately Your arrival, send mail and call by phone at least 1 hour before). Small rooms. Terrible breakfast (the only good thing is the fresh fruit).

So - I don't have anything really to compare it too. My review is based primarily on what we were looking for and other people's reviews. Here goes: In general, B&B rooms are notoriously small - however this one was fairly large and very clean. Small euro-style bathroom. Of course, buildings in Rome are old, so I wasn't expecting brand... More

Rome was our second stop during our two-week honeymoon in Italy. We booked Maison Vaticana on Agoda.com for four nights and emailed the hostel one month beforehand that we would be arriving at 3pm, taking into possibility of train delays and getting lost trying to find the hostel. We were informed that "We are waiting you in our lovely b&b... More

Rome was our first land based accommodation, the Holiday House Roma was chosen because of its location. It was conveniently placed close to The Vatican City and a modest subway ride to the Roman Forum, the Collusium etc. The proprietor was most helpful and English was no issue. The room was neat, tidy and clean, the ensuite was quite a... More

It's not a guest house-- it's a flat. I booked a double room, but was given a single. I was on my own, so it wasn't the end of the world, but I was a bit annoyed that my booking was changed without notification. A continental breakfast was advertised, but in order to get it, you have to leave the... More

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
