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 Twenty One

Hotel Twenty One Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Hotel Twenty One is an 86-room boutique property housed in an incongruously modern building on Rome's left bank, in a well-heeled neighborhood within walking distance of the Spanish Steps. The rooms are smart and modern, though some are tiny, even by Rome standards. Rates for Standard Rooms are good given the location, but guests might also want to consider the fifth-floor Deluxe Rooms, which come with private terraces, or the Suites, which come with whirlpools. The Stay Inn Rome often has similar prices and is slightly more central, but its breakfast offering is much more basic.
Visconti Palace

Visconti Palace Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The upper-middle-range Visconti Palace is located near Vatican City, with a convenient location for sightseeing, shopping and public transportation. Renovated rooms are modern and stylish; those awaiting renovations are plain and dated. The large roof terrace serving drinks and dinner is a highlight (particularly at sunset). For business travelers, facilities include several meeting rooms and currency exchange. Just note that rates can shoot up around Christian holidays, thanks to the proximity to the Holy See. Travelers may also want to consider the nearby Hotel Dei Mellini.
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.
