Relais Vatican View

Relais Vatican View Rating: 3.5 Pearls

If you're in town to see the Holy See, you can't do much better than the Relais Vatican View. It's located just meters away from the Vatican walls. The downside? It's about a 30-minute walk to the city center to see anything else -- and the closest metro is about 15 minutes away. As far as the hotel itself goes, the 15 rooms and suites are clean and relatively spacious with high ceilings and plenty of natural light. The bathrooms are also modern and sleek, with gray tile and rainfall showerheads. There isn't much in the way of amenities here (not even a restaurant, though there is a daily breakfast buffet), but the rooftop terrace with views of St. Peter's Basilica is a standout.

Hotel Dei Mellini

Hotel Dei Mellini Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Hotel Dei Mellini is an 80-room boutique in a peaceful neighborhood near the Vatican. Set in a charming 19th-century building, this modern hotel features nice decorative touches such as ornate mirrors and an interesting art collection. The spacious rooms -- classic, deluxe, and suite size -- have flat-screen TVs, minibars, and big marble bathrooms. With lots of natural light, dramatic drapes, and pops of warm color, rooms are stylish and appealing; some have Juliette balconies (which are really just balcony railings, with no room to stand). Breakfast is on offer daily in a lovely breakfast room, and a cozy lounge serves drinks and snacks throughout the day. During warmer months, cappuccino or cocktails are available on the rooftop terrace with panoramic views of Rome. The hotel has a fitness center, an uncommon feature in Rome, but there's a pesky fee for Wi-Fi.

Roman Holidays

Roman Holidays Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Many guests find Roman Holidays very difficult to find, and it's no wonder -- the rooms are housed in two separate buildings (a five-minute walk apart) which are basically apartment buildings. The front desk (check-in) is only open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and once guests are in the inn, they're pretty much left on their own. Roman Holidays is advertised as a B&B, but it feels like more of a pensione, with small, basic rooms and no common areas or amenities (even breakfast is served at an off-site local bakery). Coming back at night can feel more like going into someone's random apartment than a hotel (guests even have to turn on the hallway/stairway lights, since they're not left on all the time). It's a clean, solid option for budget travelers and for those who need a bed at night and little more. But guests looking for a true hotel or B&B shuould look elsewhere.

Cicerone Hotel

Cicerone Hotel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Cicerone Hotel is a large concrete property in the Prati district of Rome. While it lacks the historical charm found at other Rome hotels, the 298 rooms are clean and comfortable. Decor is traditional, verging on dated, and varies a bit from room to room: Some rooms have wood floors, others carpets; some have tube TVs, others flat-screens; all have lower-quality bedspreads. Bathrooms are generally spacious and some have nice tubs. Amenities include bathrobes, minibars, and electric kettles. A breakfast buffet is served daily, and a restaurant, Le Bouchon, serves classic Roman specialties for lunch and dinner. The best amenity is the piano bar -- an atmospheric place to enjoy cocktails and snacks until late.

Rome Armony Suites

Rome Armony Suites Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Rome Armony Suites is a small six-room bed and breakfast located in an area that’s convenient for tourists yet less inundated with out-of-towners than other neighborhoods. The establishment has a simple, intimate atmosphere, thanks in large part to the hands-on ownership. The very effectively soundproofed rooms are simply decorated with a modern aesthetic, including blue bedspreads and curtains, under-bed lighting, and flat-screen TVs. The breakfast part of the deal is offered at a nearby café, with plenty of additional attractions in the vicinity.
