So close to the Vatican ...did not pay for any transport , we managed to walk everywhere. Clean , comfortable , excellent for the money paid. Stephanie brought continental breakfast to our room every morning. It is up a hill but I did not find this problem , even after drinking lots of wine. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Decent place, actually you cannot get better for the money you pay. Fairvalue for money. Please be advised that there is no reception . You have to inform them well in advance your arrival time and your check out time. Breakfast is not that great with one croissant, one juice and a cup of coffee...so don't expect some buffet spread....

Vatican House Garden is very interesting place to stay, it was a pleasure for me to stay here. I will definitely choose it again because it is close to the subway (6-7min to Cipro) and that was important for me.

This is an awesome B&B. I checked in early with no problem at all. Extremely friendly staff, they made our room everyday. It's a very close walk to The Vatican (about a ten minute walk). I definitely will stay here again when I come back to Rome.

I just came back from my first trip to Europe: London, Paris and Rome - all so splendid. All the hostels that I had arranged for per Expedia were great, but the best was saved for last: Vatican Garden House!
