"AVOID THIS HOTEL!!!!"
Horrible! Completely misrepresented on Hotels.com. There is NO AIR CONDITIONING! We tried opening a window at night to cool the room down only to listen to partiers out on the street (UNTIL 4 AM EVERY NIGHT!). The beds are actually 2 twin size beds pushed together, no bedspread, the shower is tiny (the 1 1/2' square & when you showered you flooded the […] bathroom). There is TV, but unless you speak Italian, forget it...no CNN/BBC. No room at all to unpack...we had to push our suitcases partially under the bed & pull them out to get fresh clothes. They would not slide completely under the bed so the room was an obstacle course. The phones went out one day & we could not get the staff to understand (huge language barrier compared to other hotels & B&B's we've stayed at) & our other family members were in a different room on a different floor - each floor needs a key to access it, so we could not get in touch with our other family members until they finally fixed the phones. Another morning we woke up to a pop & found the power was out to our room. Since this was not our 1st stay in Europe I checked the breakers, one was tripped & I reset them...but still no power. I called the front desk & was told it would be at least 2 hours before a maintenance guy would be in to look at it! Please if you are considering this property for your stay in Rome - DON'T!

"excellent location, gracious staff"
Quiet rooms, comfortable beds at reasonable price. Airport bus drops you off at Piazza Cavour, less than 5 min walk away. Pleasant walking distance to Spanish Steps, Piazza Navonna, St. Peter's basilica, etc. Staff is friendly and helpful; very good EnglishGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great experience here! The hotel was just minutes away from Vatican City and was near Piazza Cavour, where we could catch cabs at any time of the day / night. The room was clean and extremely comfortable, and the staff were very helpful. They even offered to watch our bags for over 12 hours while we wandered around the city. Having lived in […] Rome about two years ago, I know the city well. Not all hotels are like this one. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Place for the price"
My girlfriend and I stayed at Hotel Sant Angelo for a few days over our Christmas break. Quite simply we were pleasantly surprised. We planned our trip on a pretty tight budget. This hotel was just as nice as our four star hotel in Barcelona and about half the cost. The room was fairly large, warm (unlike some of the others we stayed in on this trip), […] and centrally located. It had kind of a funky layout but was a great stay. The location was perfect. Everything was close. Walking distance to Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain, The Vatican.....and the rest. A short walk to the metro and and easy ride to ancient Rome. Overall this was a great place to stay and would stay here again in a second. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly, helpful, and a great location."
The Hotel St. Angelo is located just outside the major tourist area, and it's a simple walk accross the bridge to being explorring Rome. It is 15 minutes from the Vatican, 10 minutes from Spanish steps, etc. and has great availability of a few grocery stores within a few blocks, numerous places to eat and drink. Room size was good, bathroom a little […] bigger than a cruise ship, but plenty of hot water. I will book this hotel again when in Rome. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Superb location. Very close to the airport shuttle stop at Cavour.Genuine Expedia guest review
If you want a hotel close to the Vatican (10 min walk & just as close as the metro stop for the Vatican) and reasonably priced, this is it. Carlo was wonderful checked us in, gave us a great map of the city and marked places to eat in the hotel area and also a few other locations. Very good breakfast available. Can walk everywhere from there or public […] transportation is close - bus stop is 3 blocks away or metro is 7-10 min walk. Great location - I would go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel Sant Angelo in Rome"
Location was perfect for getting to the Vatican or to the Pantheon or Piazza Navonna. Room was adequate, but the shower was extremely small.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Near Vatican City"
Hotel staff was helpful; location near Vatican was convenient; room was clean but so tiny we had to keep 1 suitcase in the closet, back packs piled on top of one another. Other rooms (we noticed on our way out) were a comfortable size. Ask to see you room before you get settled in. Would have enjoyed our stay more had we not had such cramped quarters.

The hotel was very centrally located to all the sights. It was reasonably priced comparatively speaking. But, It was on a very noisy street and the room was not sound proofed at all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Very disorganized operation with rooms in two different buildings and coffin sized elevators. The A/C, phones and TV did not work. the location is a bit inconvient as it is 15 min walk to the Metro...and a 20 min walk to the vatican, and Spanish steps, ect.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Room and Location"
We walked to most places from the hotel. Hotel is located only a couple blocks from the airport shuttle bus stop, which makes it convenient for an early morning departure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
When we checked in at the Hotel Sant Angelo, it took them 45 minutes to process the papaerwork. We had booked two rooms for four adults. We were assured that there was also complimentary breakfast in the morning. We also asked about wifi in our rooms. They told us they would call us in our rooms to give us the passwords for the wifi. After three hours, […] I went down to the front desk and asked about the wifi again. They told me there "guy" was unavailable, and they would get it to me later. two more hours later, I went down to the front desk and was finally able to get it after standing there for twenty minutes. The next morning, we sat down for breakfast, and they told us that one room included the complimentary breakfast, but that the second room was not included!! They wanted the two other adults to pay eight euro each for breakfast! We paid the same rate for both rooms, but they were trying to scam us for 16 lousy euros. We got up and had breakfast at a place down the street. We came back, and it took them an additional 50 minutes to check us out of the room, and then demanded a two euro per person city tax after I had already paid for the room in full through hotels.com. They were very rude about everything, and I would not advise anyone to stay at this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked two rooms. My fiance and I stayed in the annex and our room was spacious, clean and updated. The other couple stayed in a much smaller, outdated yet clean room in the original hotel building. The woman that check us in, as well as anyone we called, was very nice and helpful. I would not take restaurant recommendations from them again but would […] stay at the hotel because the location is great, walking distance for all the attractions. Request the annex!

There was no conventional desk, just a small table in a hallway upstairs. They apparently overbooked, so led us a block up the street to another old office building and a room whose A/C "hadn't been switched over yet". Offered to let us see a couple of other rooms in the main building which didn't meet our original request. They were dark and dismal, […] poorly decorated, if at all. Nice and polite young people as receptionists, but could only work with what they were provided by management, which was not in evidence. Scary, tiny old elevators covered in dust served both buildings. Never before provided so little for the price. Twelfth visit to Rome, so have seen a lot. Be careful what you book!

"Hotel Sant Angelo - Satisfied With Our Choice"
We chose the Hotel Sant Angelo for a one-night stay in May 2011, prior to a cruise. We selected it based on price and location, in screening rooms with average reviews of 3.5 or better. Our room was not in the main building, but just a block away on the opposite side of the street and we knew to expect that, having reserved it for a slightly lower rate […] than in the main building. We don't have a clear memory of our room at Hotel Sant Angelo now, but we remember it was fine for our short stay, and our option of not including breakfast in our booking worked out well with the convenience of an inexpensive little coffee & pastry shop across the street. Their was a noise that sounded like clanking dishes coming from someplace nearby in the late night hours, but aside from that the room was quiet. The bed was firm and looked like it might not be comfortable, but it was fine and we slept comfortably. The location would be convenient to St. Peter's, but we did not go there until later in our trip. We spent our afternoon out walking through the Piazza Navona and areas around there, which were easily walkable from the hotel. My only negative comment is that we should not have taken the desk clerk's advice about going to a restaurant she strongly recommended on the little Isola Tiberina island on the Tiber River. It was not at all convenient to the hotel, although it was a somewhat interesting bus ride and the food was good. But our complaint was that we believe she misrepresented it, telling us "you will see 20 or 30 restaurants along there" and we could look at all the menus but she strongly recommended "the last one" and instead we got there to find that the restaurant she recommended was the only restaurant in the area at all. We could not find any others either on Isola Tiberina itself or facing the island or anywhere near it. For benefit of doubt, we could have misunderstood her of course, but she was speaking good English and she had repeated the part about it being t Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good affordable hotel"
This hotel is right in the heart of famous attractions in Rome, and is about a 10 minute walk from the Vatican and Piazza Navona. One small negative about the location was that at night, you had to walk about 2 or 3 blocks through an unlit section of the city to get there. I never felt like I was in an unsafe area, but it was dark, and that may make […] some people a little uneasy. Perhaps there would have been a better lit route for us to take, I'm not sure. The service overall was good, but one of the three staff members we encountered was a little rude. The shower was also very very weak, so bathing wasn't easy. Overall for the location, I would recommend this hotel to a friend and definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location for sightseeing old Rome."
Spent three comfortable nights here. Great to walk just down the road to the Vatican and just across the river to Old Rome.Genuine Expedia guest review
Lovely little hotel with lots of character. We were in the annexe rooms across the street, even though we paid extra to be in the main building. The room itself was nice and quaint, what you'd expect from a room in Rome. However, we were on the 4th floor and the lift kept breaking down. The breakfast was wonderful, lots of things there to eat. Staff […] were friendly and helpful. Location is ok, but not very 'in the centre of things'. Definitely stay again.

"Perfect hotel for sightseeing and relaxing"
This is a great hotel. The building is charming and in a great location if you don't want to be in the center of things, but within walking distance. It is right next to the river and the lovely Piazza Cavour (great spot for a coffee / cocktail) and there are good places to eat nearby. There is a SPA supermarket, bar, pharmacy, restaurants and an amazing […] gelateria a min walk from the hotel. The rooms were lovely, spotlessly clean with really comfy beds & great air con! All of the staff were welcoming and couldn't do enough to help. We were given maps, advice and were invited to a happy hour in the breakfast room each evening with free wine and snacks. Hotel is within walking distance of the historic center, Vatican City and we found it really easy to get around Rome using the buses & trams near to the hotel. I would recommend staying here and would certainly stay again next time I am in Rome! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff were very helpful and the location was excellent and therefore I would definitely recommend the hotel and also look at staying in Hotel Sant'Angelo in the future. The area closeby to the hotel was lovely with plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars as well as the beautiful square by the Supreme Courts.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Our best stay"
Of the 15 places we stayed at during our extended tour of UK & Europe, this was by far the best hotel. The service was exemplary, cheerful and friendly. The reception was extremely knowledgeable and helpful to the point we used one of the 2 PC's for the use of guests to book tickets for the Colosseum and they kindly suggested we use their email address […] so they could print them out for us. The room was excellent as was the extensive choice offered at breakfast. They even provide coffee and pastries for guests waiting in the reception area and invited us to drinks and nibbles at their "Happy Hour." We would recommend this hotel to anyone seeking a great experience at a reasonable price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Honestly, I had one of the best holidays with my girlfriend and the hotel made part of it. The room is small but is suitably ample.

Nice to stay at Hotel Sant'Angelo !!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is truly situated near main attractions. It took 15-20 minutes to get to Vatican, as well as sights across the river. Colisseum was our 'furthest' sight, and we took the metro (1.50 euros one way). The hotel room was clean...the issues we had were 1) the leaking tub that would make a puddle after each shower, 2) the lack of hot water on most occasions […] (probably best to shower 6-8am to get any hot water) and 3)the constant sound of water in the wall pipes...made it hard to fall asleep...We didn't have breakfast at hotel so can't comment on that. If we were to do it again, we'd stay by Termini station now that we know food there is cheaper and that the sights are all within walking or metro distance. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and value"
Great for a city centre hotel. We were looking for a decent place with a good price and location - and we got it. Yes - the bathroom is small - but clean. Room made up beautifully every day, air con that was sorely needed! The courtesy tray was a bonus but a little depleted - but we only had to ask for extra and we had it. Three bed room in the main […] hotel - basic, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was an absolute bonus! Not one for spending a lot on breakfast - the cost of 7.50 is well worth it - given the prices in Rome!! (Recently in a hotel in France the breakfast cost 14.50 - we brought our own in!). Excellent choices and loads of it - and the girls in the breakfast room are a delight! And the coffee was really good! I would certainly recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Clean and good location"
The location was good and we loved the hotel decor, enourmous wooden doors and huge staircase. We stayed in the annex which is only about 10 doors down. kids loved the lift, i refused to go in it! The room was of a good size and very clean. The down side was that the air conditioning was not working (wonder if it ever does) and it was 36c at 10pm, the […] noise outside was too loud to sleep with the windows open (it is the middle of Rome, so it is to be expected) and too hot to sleep with the windows closed. plus we had somehow managed to book 4 of us in a room and the hotel's biggest rooms have 3 beds (1 twin and a single). 2 long nights! I'd stay again without the kids. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed at Sant'Angelo for 2 nights in middle of August. We booked the hotel very early, so we got very good price. First day check in our room was not ready or some other reasons, they put us in a no air-conditioning small room in different building across the street (I guess this is the annexed room which were talked about in their booking website), […] for compansation they give us free breakfast next morning. It was middle of August, no air-conditioning meant very uncomfortable night of sleep. The room was very small, the room was provided with fan. TV remote wasn't working. Shower drain was flowing very slow. The breakfast was good and reasonable priced. The second night, they put us in a fantastic suite with 2 double deds with good air-conditioning. I wish I protested more about the air-conditioning at first night, because free breakfast is not enough to compensate the hot stuffy room and disrupted sleep. The hotel location is very good, walking distance to Vatican City. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Explaining the conflicting reviews"
We took a chance on this hotel and we were happy we did. The problem is that this hotel tries to put people into a different hotel down the street. I think this is the reason that the reviews are inconsistent. They tried this with us but we insisted on staying at Sant'Angelo and they found us a room. Our room seemed to be recently renovated and our […] only complaint was that the room door was too thin and didn't stop hallway noise. Summary: location great, bed good, clean room, comp breakfast very good. The airport shuttle two blocks away is a great bonus. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for a week long stay"
Great place to stay. The AC in our room didn't work, so we told them and they moved us to a nicer room with working air conditioning. We stayed in the annexe, which is considerably cheaper, and 20 seconds away from the rest of the hotel, the only disadvantage being that you have to walk those 20 seconds to get to breakfast in the morning. Breakfast […] was alright, continental style, but the milk was of course UHT :(. It's pretty central rome, we walked to the Vatican in 20 minutes and caught a bus to the Coliseum (although the bus schedules CHANGE ON WEEKENDS without any indication thereof, because y'know, Italians). its a stones throw from the Palazzio di Justicia (which is pretty showy) and more importantly, 5 minutes walk away from a decent supermarket/deli, which you'll want as the restaurants are fairly pricey. you also get a fridge in the room.

"Staff excellent but hotel not so good"
When we arrived at the hotel we were very impressed by the service of the hotel staff, very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately there are 2 buildings for the hotel and we were stopping in the building across the road and down the street which meant we had to walk across for breakfast every day as it was in the main building. Room ok just basic, unfortunately […] they told us the 2 rooms we had the air con was broke so they gave us a fan - this did not really help. Was so hot at night did not sleep well and when we opened the window to let air in the noise from outside was just too loud to sleep. Breakfast was quite nice, plenty of variety.

It was good, staff was very informative. Every things went well except Ist night there was no HOT water to take bath.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We ordered three nights in a room with a private bathroom. We got a room in the 4th floor of a separate building, which is newer, but with an elevator that tends to get stuck half-way between floors. At the evening, after a long walk in the hot streets of Rome, we wished to take to shower, but only to discover that there are no hot water. The clerk […] told us twice that the problem will be solved in one hour, so we waited patiently. Finally, we had a cold shower. At morning they promised that the problem will be solved, but when we arrived back at the evening, we have been told that nothing changed. We asked for another room, but the hotel was full. As long as we were polite, they insisted that they have nothing to do, even not giving us back some money. But when we raised our tones, they suddenly started to look for alternative hotel. But even then, they tried to give us very bad offers, and it took us half an hour of aggressive argument to get some normal offer. So DO NOT GET CLOSE TO THIS HORRIBLE PLACE.

"Great location; utilitarian but pleasant"
We had a great stay at the Hotel Sant'Angelo. Couldn't recommend the location more, and while the rooms were pretty basic, the staff was helpful. A bit of a hike up a bunch of stairs every time we left and came back to the hotel, and somehow I missed that breakfast wasn't included - but all in all good value for the money. I would stay there again, […] just don't expect luxury. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The hotel is situated in a quiet street close to the river but within a 5 minute walk from the Piazza Navona. We had a family room which was clean and comfortable and much bigger than expected given that this was the centre of Rome. Staff were brilliant - nothing too much trouble. The room rate included buffet breakfast which had a decent selection […] of hot and cold food. The only downside was that the breakfast room was very small which meant we had to wait each morning. Only a minor inconveniece though and given the price we paid for the room, this hotel was an absolute bargain. Would definitely return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
