this was a really neat place to stay. The caged elevator made getting my bag up to the 5th floor easy. They were accommodating by allowing early check in. They also allowed us to leave our suitcases there the morning we checked out so that we could do more sightseeing before leaving. No complaints, everything was perfect, The room was... More

We (wife & i) stayed in this B&B for 5 nights in summer of 2015. Place is very close (by foot about 10-15 min) to Vatican but at the same time dislocated from other sights of town (need to use metro or taxi), so keep that in mind. It’s located in nice neighborhood, old building (but nice), on the 5th... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The room was big and pleasant. The bathroom was nice also. We really couldn't complain much about the hotel. It wasn't far from the Vatican and we could see it out of our window. However the room needs a kettle so visitors can make a hot drink when the reception isn't open. Also the... More

Very nice rooms in a very safe and beautiful neighborhood near the Vatican area. Our room was comfortable and very, very clean! Our hostess, Frederica was very polite and always there to help us if we needed anything. All the rooms have beautiful view since they are on the fifth floor.

What a lovely B&B. A home away from home. Martha and her husband were excellent hosts. The accommodation was excellent, the rooms are fashionably decorated and provided a very peaceful and warm atmosphere. Martha set out a scrumptious breakfast every morning along with the perfect music that created the perfect ambiance for the beautiful romantic city. The B&B is perfectly... More

Six of us stayed in three rooms in September. Arranging for the rooms was outstanding with great service. Arriving to a charming building, we were checked in quickly. The rooms were clean, but small.

This is an excellent B&B. It is set in a renovated old traditional building. The rooms were very clean and well modernly decorated with the good Italian taste. We had a room with a view to St. Peter's Basilica, simply fantastic! Very friendly and helpful service! Definitely recommend it!

We spent 2 weeks in Italy during the beginning of October and this was our only bad hotel. The main issue was the complete lack of personnel. If you simply want a room in a good neighborhood then you will be fine. We were checked in by a young lady who greeted us by saying she spoke very little English.... More

Staying in Prati

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.
