About This Listing
Located a stone’s throw from the banks of the Tiber and 500m from Saint Peter’s Basilica, thanks to its top-floor location on Piazza Adriana Le Stanze del Vaticano boasts breath-taking views of the ancient papal fortress of Castel Sant’Angelo, whose imposing fortifications are quite literally across the road from our front door.
Recently refurbished to very high standards, Le Stanze del Vaticano offers guests 3 triple-bedroom suites, all of which can be converted to 2-bed according to your needs. All our suites - named after Rome’s most famous Popes – benefit from brand new furnishings, en-suite bathrooms, TVs and free Wi-Fi. The room has double bed on a loft and a double sofa bed.
Breakfast is provided by renowned local eatery Gran Caffè Cavour.
We hope that Le Stanze del Vaticano will be your springboard for exploring Rome, and with the Vatican less than 5 minutes’ walk away, Castel Sant’Angelo and the “Bridge of Angels” just across the street, and the bustling streets of the Centro Storico with their sights and shopping less than half a mile away (not to mention Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, Campo de’ Fiori, and Trastevere, all within a mile radius, with Piazza Venezia, the Coliseum and the Forum just a short bus ride away) there is no reason why it shouldn’t be.
We are a family-run, typically Roman establishment and we will be more than happy to advise you on sightseeing and the best places to eat out in our neighbourhood. Private guided tours to Rome’s main tourist attractions, with fully bilingual and registered guides, are also available on request.
(Please note that we also offer private, secure parking in our building upon request)

Interaction with Guests
I am happy to help you with any queries or issues you might have, and can easily recommend an outstanding restaurant, cafè or bar, as well as locations for shopping or sightseeing - this is, after all, my city! Please note that I do have a full-time job in addition to managing this property, so getting hold of me in person other than at check-in and check-out may be tricky, but I always answer my phone or email promptly.
Piazza Adriana is located in the very heart of Rome and is surrounded by a host of architectural beauties such as Castel Sant'Angelo and, of course, St Peter's Basilica. All of these are within easy walking distance, while other sights such as Trastevere (a very good area to find restaurants, pizzerias and bars), Piazza Navona, the Pantheon Campo de Fiori and the Colosseum and Forum are an easy morning's stroll away or well-connected by bus. For shopping enthusiasts, Via del Corso is just across the Tiber.
Le Stanze del Vaticano is located half a mile from the “Ottaviano – San Pietro” Metro station and is easily accessible from Termini Central Station by Bus, Metro or Taxi. Guests can also take a train to San Pietro Train Station directly from Fiumicino Airport by changing at Trastevere Station.
Other Things to Note
Please note that due to recent issues with check-ins occurring outside of our stated hours we have been forced to enact a different policy.
From now on, any check-in which takes place outside of the specified timeframe (phone number hidden)) will incur a fixed charge of €10 if it takes place from (phone number hidden) or 1630 to 20:00 and of €20 if it takes place from 20:00 to 08:00. This is subject to room availability - if you arrive early and another guest still hasn't checked out yet, I'll obviously be unable to accommodate you.
Please note that secure baggage storage is available before or after your check-in time for the price of €10.
The House Is very clean and it has just been refurbished. We expect the same care from our guests as we do in respect of the house.
For the Keys: we will welcome you handing a copy of the Keys in person.
The owner will be at your disposition any time on its mobile. (phone number hidden)
The room has a kitchen with all the tools necessary to cook:, microwave oven, dishes,cutlery,glasses,etc etc.(any particular need could be satisfied if asked in time!)

IMPORTANT: PLEASE NOTE THE CHECK-IN TIME.
We are not a hotel and as such we do not operate a 24-hour concierge service! This is not my only job and I have an extremely busy schedule - I am frequently not home earlier than 10 and sometimes sleep at my family's house as it is closer to my office. I have specifically organised my schedule so that I am free from (phone number hidden) every day to help you check in so I would really appreciate guests keeping to this timetable.
Obviously I realise that this is not always possible as flight arrivals and your plans may conflict with this arrangement. However, if you are unable to check in at 4, PLEASE, PLEASE let me know well in advance so I can organise my schedule.I aim to accommodate any reasonable check-in time requests, but it is crucial for me to know when! It is extremely inconvenient for me to have to orbit around the B&B from 4pm onwards because guests neglected to notify me they were arriving that evening, or have to leave work at a moment's notice to welcome guests who arrived early without letting me know until they were there.
Please note that unless you specify otherwise in your correspondence with me, I'll assume you are checking in at 1600. If you fail to do so and aren't there by 1630, I'll be forced to go back to work and cannot guarantee I'll be able to welcome you to the B&B until I return there in the evening.
I am aware that the unexpected may always occur when travelling - missed connections, delayed flights, lost baggage, etc - and if that happens, then obviously the matter is out of our hands. However, your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated!
Linens and towels are provided.
Checkout times can be arranged to suit your departure time (provided you vacate the apartment in time for it to be cleaned prior to a new guest's arrival). When you checkout, I'll pick up the keys from you and you'll be quickly on your way!
Please remember to close the elevator door. We are located on the fifth floor of our building and our door is t on the right when you exit the elevator.
The location was great- right next to the Vatican, so it was really convenient. The host helped us out with some information about the city, which was good. The breakfast provided was only very basic- available at a cafe, which was not too great.
We were not sure which of the rooms we were getting-3 rooms are advertised on the page, so I guess it would be good to confirm which one is being booked. The room was quite small- we were 4 people, so maybe that's why.
There was no kitchen in my room, not even a electric tea pot to make water. There was no mirrors in the room or no TV. The bathroom was in the hall but not specified in listing. Good location and was able to see the castle from the room. but would have preferred a place to make a cup of tea and have a bathroom in the room.
Al nostro arrivo ci si presenta subito un grosso problema, causa un guasto improvviso al bagno l'appartamento è inagibile. La signora Paola però in breve tempo ci trova una soluzione magnifica regalandoci pure un tour per le vie della città davvero interessante e divertente. Le brave persone si vedono davanti ai problemi e noi siamo stati fortunati.
Alessandra (che ci ha accolto) e Giulio, che abbiamo sentito telefonicamente, sono stati entrambi gentilissimi e simpatici. L'appartamento è molto bello e in posizione perfetta, accanto a Castel Sant'Angelo: permette di raggiungere ogni zona di Roma facilmente, a piedi (lusso da non sottovalutare!), in metro o autobus.
Tutto ok, pulizia, camera silenziosa e letti con materassi comodi!
Well situated, just behind Castel Sant'Angelo and ideal for a couple who want to visit Rome.
Easy to arrive from the airport: there is the Sit Bus Shuttle that for 6 euros it brings you at 300 meters from the apartment, the stop is called Vaticano/Via Crescenzio 2.
Clean and tidy. The bed was a little bit hard and you couldn´t stand up in the "bedroom", but it satisfied all the basic requirements.
Originally, it belonged to a larger apartment, but now is divided into smaller ones. This apartment unfortunately didn't have a view on Castel Sant'Angelo, but Giulio told us that some of the others do.
Giulio and his mother were easily available and keen to give you all the information you require.
Brekfast included in the bar around the block: cappuccino and croissant.

About the Host, Giulio
I am Giulio i love to interact with people from around the world, I love cinema and music.
I am a sailor and as a natural cosequence I am often by the sea, it is a fundamental part of my life.
As a Host I like to suggest nice things to do or good place where to eat, since I would love others to do the same thing for me. I studied three years in London(UK) and lived the rest of my life here in Roma and due to this I consider myself able to understand needings of people that must adapt to Italy's life.
If you were thinking about having a little trip, Rome and Me are waiting for you!
