Location is great, and the building itself is beautiful. The room however was very scruffy, with stains on the sofa and walls. One small window, but so high up you can't look outside. Our room was next to a utilities room; the dryers made an awful racket. Definitely not a 4* hotel.

One reviewer called the Hotel Columbus Austere. This place was austere even by dorm room standards. The bed took up most of the room and there was a hallway to a decent bathroom and shower. There was a small closet with a faded finish on the doors and trim and a dresser much the same. We were there in July...

This hotel in Rome is ideal for tourists wanting to visit Vatican City as it is minutes away. In fact our front facing room gave us a fabulous view of St Peter's Square. The hotel was a former monastery and the building itself has lovely decorations in the main areas. The bedroom we had was another story! It was austere,...

Stay here was very mixed, as previous reviewers have noted. It is definitely not a four-star hotel and is in desperate need of thorough renovation. Positives: front desk staff, location, and fact that it is old palace. Room was quiet, even though it faced street. I was never bothered by noise. Clean. Negatives: rooms are as sparse as convent I...

We had visited St Peter's Square and the Basilica and were looking for a quiet place to rest. This was the perfect place which we found by pure chance. There is an inner courtyard that is miles away from the buzz of the Vatican but which is only a few meters away from the entrance to St Peter's itself. The...

The hotel had wonderful character and amazing history. The hotel was clean and simple although the bed and shower were just "OK". Breakfast and hotel restaurant were great. You can't beat the location!

This is our 2nd time in Rome/Vatican and we wanted to stay that is a stone's throw away from St. Peter's Square and Basilica...literally! Our hotel a couple of years ago was much better, within walking distance of the Vatican but we'd rather stay here. It is not the best accommodation especially if we are looking for what we are...

Room clean but basic. Sheets changed every day. Fridge and TV. Good shower. Breakfast basic. Staff friendly and helpful. Near buses and Metro and good restaurants. Only a few minutes walk from St. Peter's Square and 10 mins from Vatican Museum. 10 mins from good selection of shops in Via Cola di Rienzo.

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.
