Excellent location! You can't get any closer to the Vatican than this hotel - and even remarkable is the history of the building itself. Rooms were clean, modern, and the staff was accommodating. But just a note - I would be specific when asking questions and getting answers as I think something gets lost in the translation somehow. Their selling...

Breakfast isn't great. The staff are lovely and location is amazing. Even a child could throw a stone and hit the Vatican from the front door. Within 60 seconds you'll be in the courtyard in front of St Peters Cathedral.

From arrival past midnight to our departure 3 days later the hotel and their personnel were superb. From a scrumptious breakfast included every morning to an evening on the balcony overlooking St. Peters Square what a memory of our stay in the Eternal City.

When visiting Rome, I have always stayed at another establishment. NEVER AGAIN!!!! The Residenza Paolo VI is an amazingly nice hotel, and it literally abuts St. Peter's Square. The view from the terrace of the hotel is breath taking. The breakfast is quite good. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Minibar is compl.imentary, though only stocked with water.

This hotel was in the best location ever. Very close to St Peters Square. Our room was cute and cosy (i.e. very small) but it was immaculately clean and appeared to have been recently renovated. It is a bit hard to find the hotel but there is taxi stand almost right outside and the drivers are super helpful. You have...

This is my opinion after spending two nights at the "Residenza Paolo VI" -staff: very polite and helpful, -location: good because of vicinity to the st Peter's cathedral , but the location is not the best choice for visiting Rome. View from the Hotel's restaurant looking to st Peter's cathedral is fantastic. -breakfast: simple,fresh -room: basic but clean .

In October, when we visited Rome it's cold at night. This hotel has no heat, no hair conditioner only shampoo, no irons, and 1 person at the front desk. The hotel had only 2 English TV stations. The last night I found a water beetle in the corner of my room close to my bed. The streets around the hotel...

A very nice hotel a stones throw from St Peter's Cathedral. Hotel is very clean and comfortable beds. A quiet refuge with a quaint small dining terrace perfect for that afternoon wine with a wonderful view of the Cathedral. Daily breakfast is a full breakfast and very tasty. Service in the restaurant is very good and the hotel staff is...

We started our trip in Rome. They hotel was beautiful. You walk out of your hotel and 6 more steps and you are in the square at the Vatican... The staff was very nice. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. We would highly recommend this hotel.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Residenza Paolo VI, established on the premises of an Augustinian Monastery, was inaugurated at the beginning of the Holy Year 2000. The genius loci and the charm of tradition, still alive in its ancient walls, make this property your "private" haven in Rome, far away from chaos, in the pulsing heart of the Eternal City. Rome has many hotels, but only one of them is located directly on St. Peter's Square (Vatican): Residenza Paolo VI, the ideal place for those wishing to stay in the heart of Christendom, close to St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Grottoes, the Necropolis, St Peter's and Saint John Paul II's tombs, the Vatican Gardens and St. Angel's Castle. Walking along the Vatican Wall, it's easy to reach the Vatican Museums and visit the famous Sistine Chapel. Furthermore, some of our rooms offer special view of the Holy Office or of the internal courtyard of the ancient monastery or even of St. Peter's Dome. From our magnificent Terrace it is possible to admire up close St. Peter's Basilica and the Apostolic Palace, exactly where the Holy Father Pope Francis appears to bless the faithful and to recite the Sunday Angelus. ... more   less
