"Super Close to Vatican City"
Great location, only a few blocks from Vatican City. There are some good restaurants near the hotel and the staff was very very helpful. Downsides are that if you have a room facing the street, the street noise at night is pretty loud. Room was a little small, but was clean and suitable. Would stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, hotel ok"
We booked the hotel at the last minute for the location and it advertised free parking. Parking wasnt free it was 30 Euros per night. The hotel is in a great spot just outside the Vatican. The room we had was in need of updating and a good clean. There was mold in the shower and very poor water pressure. Staff was pleasant and they have a terrific roof […] top area with a great night view of St Peters Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't trust the number of stars"
The hotel is really old, the room is very uncomfortable, the ventilation of the bathroom points out to the room, the view of the room is to the interior of the building which doesen't have being given mantainance in years. Don't ask for anything as they don't have it (ie. iron, umbrella, etc). The hair dryer doesn't work. The only advantage is that […] is close to the Vatican but the experience in the hotel is very disappointing I don't know how they have 4 stars! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel / Amazing View"
The hotel was old world European. Amazing view to the Vatican the extremely close. Just a 5 minute walk away. It was an average/nice hotel. Rooms were small. Air Conditioning was not working. Luckily we had cool nights. Before booking, I'd make sure you confirm the AC was working. It would have been intolerably hot if it was in the Summer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location for Rome and the Vatican"
The room was small, air conditioning did not work, and there were no wash cloths. Bed was not very comfortable and there were no room safes. The location was great, the breakfast was good and the rooftop restaurant had terrific views. Overall I liked it but it was overpriced for what it was.Genuine Expedia guest review
advertised that is has a/c, but doesn't until end of june, this is april. not helpful with tours, don't know the location of anything in the city. charge a fee to exchange money, don't offer food. (there is an independant very formal rooftop restaurant with 24 hours notice to dine) and it took 4 days to get laundry done (they charged 65 euros which […] at this time was $100) they charge for inernet that was advertised as free, but it was down due to road work right in front of the hotel, the noise was terrible especially because you had to sleep with the window open because it was hot in the room Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, unfriendly staff"
althought th hotel is in a WONDERFUL location,and has a fantastic view of St Peters, and the hotel is very clean...the staff was not friendly...I stayed here 5 years ago and found them most helpful...but not on this 4 night stay...they hardly spoke to us!!! part of the journey to Rome is the people you meet...I would find another location...Genuine Expedia guest review
"My teen daughter and I enjoyed our stay"
We had the heater turned off but it was still sooo hot. Great location to walk to almost anything. Short walking distance to subway. Great restaurants close by. Overall a decent time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A delight for honeymooners."
An almost traditional European style hotel. It's cute and cozy inside. Walking distance to The Vatican and Castel Sant'angelo where you can literally see the St. Michael statue from the entrance of the hotel. Lots of places to eat around the block including a small grocery store just around the corner. The breakfast buffet is pretty good but the view […] is the main reason you should go up there. The hotel can be a bit noisy from the sound of the ambulance or police sirens outside in the early morning but its manageable and you get used to it. Internet and wi-fi could be a little better but its free so I guess it's ok. Walls are kind of thin so don't be too noisy especially if you're in the hall. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Old, dusty hotel, small rooms, good location"
The room is very small and very dusty, last time it was renovated probably in 19th century. Toilet did not work properly, in addition the toilet ventilation goes right into the room. This is the only source of the "fresh" air in the room. No climate control. Good location, 10 min walking from Vatican and good view from the restaurant (but the restaurant […] food is average) The front desk is very rude (some Ukrainian personnel). TV didn't work; no Internet, you will have to pay for the Internet separately. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Hotel is very convenient to the center, shopping and restaurants. Staff is polite and helpful. They are very pleasant . During my stay I felt safe and at home . Stayed in the lobby to use the WIFI at dawn..staff at night makes sure check and asked if you need assistance. The roof top garden restaurant food is great, nice ambiance of St. Peter dome.

"Great place to stay!"
The location of the hotel is perfect - just a short distance from San Pietro and close to all forms of transportation. The cleanliness of the hotel was perfect.

"Ok hotel by European standards"
Not a bad hotel for an older European city (i.e. it was what I was expecting). Rooms are on the small side, but big enough if you are travelling alone or with your spouse (and don't have a ton of luggage). This is not a 4 star hotel as you would find in the states, make sure you understand that going into it and you won't be disappointed. My room had […] a mini-bar but no ironing board, go figure. The hotel has wifi, but you must pay for it and coverage in the lobby/bar-area is suspect (but no issues at all in my room). The safe in my room was broken which was a major inconvenience. The staff is courteous and pleasant. The only issue I had was the free shuttle pickup at the airport. My flight was late and it took an hour to get my luggage and the driver did not wait - the result was that I had to wait at the airport for almost 2 hours for him to come back. While the hotel charges for a shuttle back to the airport, it is cheaper than it would be to take a cab. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"There are better options"
The hotel locations was perfect, but the lack of maintenance in the room we were given was obvious (hair dryer did not work, two burnt light bulbs and the TV set had to be repaired). Besides, there was very limited Internet access and the restaurants were closed most of the time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great for couples"
The hotel was great. The room was a little small by American standards, but that is what I expected. The staff was friendly and always willing to help us with whatever we needed. The hotel was very clean and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was tiny. Air conditioning did not work. Customer service seemed like an effort. Surrounding neighborhood was lacking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was nice with a great location just 5 blocks walking from St. Peter' basilica....The breakfast was great and the rooms were clean. The only thing that wasn't great was their airconditioner...it worked but it could have been cooler, but on the same note it was hard to find a place in Rome were you could find a real cool airconditioner cooling […] well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms were an ok size considering European standards. There was no bathtub in the bathroom. The beds were VERY HARD and so were the pillows, not 4 star quality! The location was great. A couple of the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, while others were rude and seemed inconvenienced by questions. You have to walk up a small flight of stairs […] upon entering the hotel to get to the lobby and it is not stroller/wheelchair friendly. The one elevator in the hotel was small and could barley fit 4 people. You have to pay for internet and the food was sub-par. Breakfast was disappointing, meat, cheese and bread for breakfast? Dry cereal and no milk? Even though the booking said breakfast was not included, it must have been because the one day we ate there, we were not charged. And we were not able to eat at the restaurant for dinner due to lack of communication by the staff. The desk staff said you just need to go up there while the restaurant staff says you need a reservation. Overall, it's in a good location, but I would not stay there again nor would I recommend this hotel to anyone. We were very disappointed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel if the restaurants are open"
Hotel was up to our expectations, the closeness to the Vatican. We were disappointed in the restaurants. This seemed to be their big selling point. When we arrived we were told the restaurant was only open for breakfasts and on Friday nights. Their chef had quit and all we received was a continental breakfast. Their rooftop garden restaurant was not […] only closed but you could not even access it to see the view that they had advertised. Both the male and female bartenders were great and very helpful.

"Great hotel for the price and great stay."
Everything was great. Room was cleaned daily and the staff was friendly. Breakfast in the am was good and fueled you until mid day. I would stay there again if I went back especially for the price. My one complaint is the front desk person did not tell us how to get to the airport using public transportation. My guess is they want you to use their shuttle […] service to the airport for 20 Euros per. Dont do it. We took the Metro to the main station (1.50 euro per) then we took a bus to the airport (4 Euros per). Overall the hotel was in a great location and it was perfect for unwinding and sleeping. When you are in Rome you shouldn't be spending a whole lot of time in your room anyhow. Book it if you are thinking about this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"good option is Rome"
Good hotel, good location. Nice neighborhood. You can wave to the Pope from there. Staff is average but willing to help. Roof top is NOT open and a bit of a let down. Restaurant is not worth the cost when it is open for dinner, go elsewhere. Overall though, it's a good option.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Atlante Star Great Choice!"
We love the Atlante Star Hotel! We stayed there a few years ago and could not wait to return. It is a older hotel with very much charm. The rooms are spotless clean and the staff is first rate. We arrived mid-morning and our room was ready for us. The air-conditioning was blowing cold. Rome was hot this late June! Atlante Star is very near The Vatician,therefore […] you may walk in just a few minutes. The metro is about 4 blocks away and the bus stops are very near. We were treated like family and could not have asked for more. We will be back!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location for Vatican City and a metro stop was close by. Staff (front desk, servers, housekeepers) was amazingly helpful and friendly. I was sad that the roof garden was under renovation, but the restaurant had beautiful city views. Breakfast had a vast selection of rolls, meats, cheeses, etc. Airport pickup was also greatly appreciated. There […] were several restaurants on the neighboring streets that were delicious and reasonably priced -- Tre Pupazzi on Borgo Pio was so delicious we went there twice. Great menu and not a tourist trap like many of the restaurants close to major attractions. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Roman Hotel A Decent Value"
The hotel was in a good location with an excellent little restaurant close by. Bus stops were also minutes away. Overall the hotel was a great value and very clean. I would say the only drawbacks were very uncomfortable pillows and European A/C is not the same quality that you would find in the U.S.Genuine Expedia guest review
Rooms are small, clean. Staff on all shifts spoke English. Within blocks of Vatican. Easy to walk to other major sites. Many typical Italian sidewalk cafes in neighborhood. ATM on the next block that accepted American Express prepaid card as well as Visa & MC. Be sure to give flight arrival information when booking hotel to arrange complimentary pick […] up in Rome. I had to email info but had a response in a couple of hours. I'd go back. Good value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A "4" star hotel that fells more like a 2.5 star.."
Location is great, especially if you like to walk the city. Hotel was over priced, breakfast was not included and Wifi was only available in the lobby at a cost of 5 Euro for a few hours... The restaurant/breakfast room, on the 6th floor, was very nice with a very nice view of the surrounding neighborhood. Lobby was quite nice and staff was professional.

"Good hotel if you are on a budget!"
One of the least expensive "nice" hotels that you find in Rome that are in the middle of everywhere. Just short walking distance to the Vatican and Saint Peter Square - I cannot complaint since I was on a budget. Rooms are small but very clean. I thought the internet was included but you have to pay to use it, you have to buy cards for hourly use. Also, […] they do not have a maintenance crew on standby so my phone did not work for the 6 nights I was there. Never tried the restaurant in the hotel because it was not open all the time (maybe no clients) so I went out in town for every meal. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The restaurant is beautiful, and the food was very good in the evening. The breakfast was bland. It always felt like the front desk staff was mocking us when we were just trying to purchase their Internet service. And the pictures on the website were very misleading.

The location of this hotel was outstanding and we had an amazing view out our windows too. It was pretty noisy at night, but that's to be expected in the "heart" of Rome.

"Atlante Star Hotel - Rome, Italy"
Overall, I thought it was a good place to stay in Rome, Italy. Very close to the Vatican. My two issues are: 1) A plumbing problem in the hotel forced us to move out for one night. They sent us to their sister hotel (Atlante Garden), obviously no extra charge. But I felt that we should have been offered some type of "compensation" like a free breakfast […] or maybe a drink or two in their lounge. 2) It felt like they turned down the heat during the night. We were there in January. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Atlante Star Hotel in Rome--near Vatican"
We stayed here the first few nights in Rome and had a wonderful stay, We loved the neighborhood, 10 minute walk to St Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Museums, and great shopping. It was a nice area to walk around at night, and great cafe right down the street on the corner. Many other nice cafes also. Definitely walk over the bridge with the angels by […] St Angelo's Castle and explore the cafes and neighborhood right over the bridge. Rome subway was about 15 minute walk, convenient for us. Hotel provided us a choice with airport pick up or breakfast, and we chose pick up because it was our first time in Rome and did not know our surroundings, Pick up was on time, and convenient, but driver was not very welcoming. Hotel allowed us to check in early, which really helped with the 9 hour overnight flight and 6 hour time difference so we were able to rest. Room was very nice and clean, except seemed to be a bit dusty, likely due to wall paper and curtains, which were a bit dated. Loved the windows and wooden shutters that opened. Crazy traffic in the area, when walking really tried to cross at traffic lights. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Glad I chose the Atlante Star for our 6 night stay in Rome. Ten minute walk to Vatican - walk up Borgo Pio is pleasant. Very clean room and bed was very comfortable. Staff helpful, pleasant. Great breakfast served in gorgeous dining room with fantastic view. Always got my morning capuccino upon request. Waited an hour at airport for comp pick up and […] ride was a bit scary as I was warned about Rome cabs in general but it was free. Nice little restaurant a block away on same street - Porto Castello - recommend. Also close to bus stop near Castel San Angelo. Convenient and pleasant. Would go back again.

"The Hotel Altante Star - close to the Vatican"
Overall the hotel was satisifactory. Hower, the service was excellent. The breakfast (included with the Room) was oKas a standard in Rome. The Superior Double room was small with twin beds moved together .Not enough of closet space. The jacuzzi did not work. The roof garden was under repairs/updating. The main formal restraunt, Les Etoiles, was expenive, […] but the food was good. It had a great view of the dome of St Peter's Basilica and the surrounding area. The hotel was within 3 blocks of the Vatican. Local restraunts were within 1 block of the hotel. We enjoyed our stay at the hotel and would recomment this hotel if one would like to stay close to the Vatican. It was within 2+ miles of the main Rome sights.

"An Old, Outdated Dump"
We went to Rome 2 days before our cruise and stayed at this place. What a dump! We only chose it because has a "free" shuttle service from Leonardo daVinci Airport (FC0) that we had to wait an hour for. We came to find out that "Free" shuttle service is worked into the price. The "Professional Photos" are completely misleading. You can barely turn around […] in this hotel. The place is old & outdated. The elevator can only hold 4 people max. You open the door to your room & there is the bed. It's just a room built around a bed about 6" from the desk. The walls are about 10" from the bed all around. It had a bidet in the bathroom which is completely gross. Who would use a bidet in a hotel room? The shower curtain had mold on it & I refused to use it. The CLOTH bedspread looked ratty & about 30 years old. Breakfast is almost non-existent. Also, they don't have key cards. They have actual keys on a cheesy tassle that you have to stick in a keyhole so anyone can make a copy of your room key. They also take your passports upon check in & you get it back later which I did not like. Itt's not in a great part of town. Grafitti on buildings everywhere you look. Also, it is apparently on a street that ambulances use to get the hospital so you can listen to sirens going by when in your room esp. trying to sleep @ night. Avoid this place. I feel we overpaid for what we got. I couldn't wait to get out of there. This is NOT a 4 star hotel. It's a 1-2 star hotel at best. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect Vatican Spot"
The hotel is in a great location for visiting the Vatican, you can even see St Peter's from the restaurant. Rome isn't that big of a city and so it's not in a bad location for everywhere else. The longest walk took about 45 minutes to St John Lateran which is at the opposite side of Rome As with most European hotels, the rooms are small compared to […] American ones but they have all of the essentials. The beds were comfortable. The closet in my room was a little small but my sister's room had a larger closet. The TV system had a good selection of English language programs. WiFi was available. The bathroom was a good size with a full size jetted tub. The staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. The only negative is that the hotel is a little dated. It doesn't detract from the core qualities of the hotel but it could do with a refresh. Would definitely stay there again and recommend other people to do so. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I really enjoyed this hotel. We got the basic room, which is fine if you are site-seeing all day. It is very close to food and shopping and the Vatican.

"Nice little hotel near the Vatican"
Our stay at the Atlante Star was very comfortable and pleasant, though the location was not optimal for what we ended up doing. If you plan to spend your time at the Vatican, then this hotel is absolutely perfect. If, like us, you're most interested in what's on the east side of the river, then only consider the Atlante Star if you want a quiet room […] and/or you don't mind walking a lot. The rooms are small and somewhat cramped, and the hallways are only about 1 person wide -- but that's common in Rome, and the Atlante Star makes good use of the space it has and its location in a quiet neighborhood adds greatly to its charm. If you want more room, stay outside the city center. Besides...this is *Rome*...if you find yourself staying in your hotel room a lot, you're doing it wrong! If you stay here, don't ignore the city block just to the south of the hotel. It's a warren of tight little alleyways with lots of hidden gems: a tea shop (Makasar), one of Rome's rare Chinese restaurants, excellent wine bars and restaurants (check out Nuvolari), and little shops and galleries. If you go too far, you'll find yourself on a street lined with touristy restaurants hawking to the Vatican visitors. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
