We stayed here 7 years ago when we were in Rome and couldn't wait to return!! It was exactly as we remembered it! Not the most modern of hotels and certainly not very big but in a great location with nice clean rooms and a helpful staff! We look forward to visiting again in the future!!

No, this is not a luxury five star hotel, however the property makes up for the lack of luxury with impeccable service and a great location (15 minute walk from Vatican City) and 30 minutes or less everywhere else. Well, the Colosseum was actually a 45 minute walk. However, the buses run in front of the hotel if you are... More

Stayed here for two nights with husband for a special birthday break. The hotel is in the most fabulous location with St. Peter's and the Vatican within 10 minutes walking distance. The piazza Cavour at the end of the street is beautiful. Some nice restaurants and coffee shops etc within a street or two. The hotel itself is ok. The... More

This hotel is fine. It's location is pretty good without being brilliant. It's about a 10min walk to city centre. Breakfast was ok with cereal, meats, toast, croissants. Fresh coffee and the ladies serving were so nice. Reception were hit and miss depending on which one you got. Overall fairly helpful. Check in check out good. Room was fairly small... More

I've been in this charming hotel located in Rme downtown last month and I think is so good for space of rooms and for very tasted breakfast served at 1st floor from 8 to 10 every morning. I taked a comfortable bus opposite the main entrance of hotel to reach Rome center (Vias Condotti). Wonderful choice.

Good rooms and good service. Boring breakfast. Maybe the slowest elevator I have ever seen. Very good location, close to everything. 10 minutes walk from the metro station Spagna if you are going by metro from the airport. Hard to find parking around.

Excellent location - 15 min walk to Vatican / 30 minute walk to coliseum / lots of restaurants near by. Great service at the front desk & at breakfast. We booked the superior room & it was a good size. Cleaned everyday as well. Basic breakfast but nice enough. Would stay again.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights. It was really difficult to find the street as it was not on a map we had.

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
