La Cupola del Vaticano is good choice for Rome, especially when you plan to visist the Vatican. The hotel is located on the third Floor (with Elevator) and only a five minutes walk to the Vatican. Breakfast is served in the bedroom. The reception is not always available.

Very nice atmosphere, very nice and kind people! The B&B is located at the corner of Via Ottaviano and Piazza Risorgimento just in front of Vatican City . Great location in the heart of Rome, 200 m from Vatican City, Via del Corso, Piazza del Popolo, Via Cola di Rienzo.

Amazing location and great advice. Rome may not have been built in a day, but thanks to the helpful tips given we just about saw it all in a couple of days. Great tips on where to eat and how to make the most out of our short stay. Breakfast served in the room was really nice.

I have been staying at this location for many years now and have always found it a perfect location to be near the Vatican and other historical sites. The Cupola is an excellent lovely little hotel with a very welcoming and helpful staff. They make you feel quite at home.

Recently my wife and I went to Rome prior to our cruise and stayed with Danny and Ema at La Cupola del Vaticano. What a introduction to Rome!! The location of the B&B is in the middle of Rome with access to all the sites. Vatican City is 500 meters from the property, restaurants, shopping, transit all within walking distance....

My parents were due to stay but unfortunately there was a plumbing issue that meant their room wasn't available. As it's a small hotel it meant my parents had to be moved but Danny and Ema were wonderful in their communications and really looked after my parents.

La Cupola is is located almost on the walls of the Vatican. While to an Australian the position, three floors up in a residential building, is unconventional, even obscure, the hotel itself is a hidden gem! We were in a spacious, well appointed room with excellent amenities. Our room actually looked out on the Cupola del Vaticano, but the double...

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.
