The hotel and location were great, as for the staff they were not up to par. Service was almost none existance. We had to ask two or three time to get the shower in our room fixed. I was finally done on the fourth day. The deadbolt on the room door did not work and this was brought to the attention of the hotel as soon as we arrived and it was never fixed. We were forced to prop a chair behind the door at night.

I have read previous reviews and agree with the comments about Paul - he is very helpful. He holds the place together -so avoid Mondays when he is not at work! Apart from that, it is just a place to sleep. A fellow guest remarked that it seemed to be run by a small group of students. It seems very under-staffed and run on the cheap. A good location for the Vatican but not so good if you are more interested in the Forum area, for example. It's OK if you don't expect too much.

Bonne surprise, il s'agit bien d'un hôtel particulier, situé à 2 pas du VATICAN dans un quartier valorisant. Mauvaise surprise, la chambre qu'on nous destine n'est pas dans le bâtiment attendu ! Bref, après une négociation unilatérale sans compromis, nous obtenons une chambre "luxe" dans un autre bâtiment très proche. La Chambre est très spacieuse, assez luxieuse et refaite à neuf. Des progrès à faire sur le petit déjeuner qui n'a rien de CONTINENTAL. En bref, ne cherchez pas un service 4 étoiles dans cet hôtel particuler mais plutôt un hébergement bien placé, comprenant les services minimums et dont le rapport qualité/prix reste compétitif.

First time to Rome. The Vatican Garden Inn was extremely charming! Our quad room was spacious, immaculate, and well decorated. (Not to mention the jacuzzi tub!) Staff was eager to please. Paul, the young man to cleans speaks perfect English and was very helpful! We thought the breakfast in the garden was delightful. Only one word of warning; Staff leaves at midnight, so if you have a late arriving flight you will have to make prior arrangements with them.

We spent a very nice stay. The hotel was perfect. Breakfast was excellent and served outside on a lovely terrasse. The staff was charming. Our room was not very big, but very well decorated and calm. The location of the hotel was perfect, close from the underground (5 min walk), nice restaurants and shops. I'd love to go back to Rome and stay in this hotel again.

Talk about convenience! Walk to the Vatican even though the hotel is off the beaten path. No dining on site, except for breakfast, but that was not unexpected in that there were only 6 rooms. Great room, decorated beautifully.

L'accoglienza è stata all'altezza della situazione e la camera era perfetta. L'unica cosa poco piacevole è stata rappresentata dal fatto che dopo la prima notte mi hanno chiesto di potermi cambiare la stanza e quella in sostituzione era veramente piccola!!! Il bagno poi..... Bello ma non ci si poteva neanche muovere! Non accettano l'American Express!!!

A very nice little B&B. Service and cleanliness were of an excellent standard, and the staff/manager were friendly and helpful. It was literally 100 metres from the Vatican Museum and the Castle D'Sant Angelo, both worth a visit. The only slightly negative point was the rooms may be a little on the small side for some guests' taste but we found them to be OK for our requirements. Rustique Pizza, just a couple of streets away served the best pizza in Rome! We would stay here again and would recommend the hotel as suitable for couples rather than families.
