We spent seven nights at the Vatican View this month, along with friends. We arrived tired from a red-eye flight and had no difficulty finding the hotel. Check-in is next door to the hotel,but the great staff, Fabio, Alessandra, Daniel and Francesca keep a sharp eye out arriving guests. Our rooms were all ready for check- in and we were able to throw our bags in our rooms and get to St Peter's Square to see the Pope. Unlike the previous reviewer, we did find some decent restaurants in the area (with a little help from Rick Steves). Our rooms were clean and updated. The elevator is small but we just took turns. The roof garden was great. The staff and location of this hotel are great. We'll return.
