Hotel Franklin Feel The Sound is a great hotel in Rome that is situated a short 15-minute walk from the Vatican.
There are plenty of shops and restaurants in the area to visit and the area is relatively safe in the evening.

We recently stayed at hotel franklin in rome.for a week from 8th to the 15th of February.
We had a very pleasant stay.
Plenty of bars and restaurants very near by.and very close to vatican and main attractions,once you get used to the walk.
This hotel is a good location for Vatican City as it is only a 15 minute stroll, but felt a little out of the way when your walking around Rome all day and then have another 10 - 15 min walk from the Ottaviano metro...More
Stayed here for a week and was not disappointed. In an excellent location for the Vatican,5 mins walk, and a quiet area so good sleep at night.
Hotel was very clean and the staff very helpful.

I had to call them to get them to confirm. Since it is international you may want to use a calling card. The owner speaks fair English if you talk slow. I don't believe they offer any transportation, they are small and only have a dozen or so rooms. But the staff is only very friendly and you are about 1/2 from the subway and less than a mile from the vatican. the neighborhood feels a bit sketchy but we had no problems during our stay in the fall. If you need access to public transport get a Roma pass. It includes three days of public transit and one or two entrance fees to things like the colosseum and Roman forum. If you go to Vatican(not included in Roma pass) i strongly recommend a guide to skip the line and get some good information. But be aware it's very crowded but totally worth the visit.
There is free wifi at the hotel, so you can check in on your phone or laptop. And the staff gave us the hotels email address,to email the boarding passes to. They printed it in the morning we left the hotel, we picked it up... More
