"Next to the Vaican Museum"
The hotel is next to Vatican city. This is good and bad. The good part is convenience. It is easy to find, close to the train and all you have to do is walk across the street to get to the museum. The bad part is the neighborhood is very busy and loud. You can't walk out of the hotel without being surrounded by tour groups and people selling tours.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great neighborhood and host :)"
Pasquale was very accommodating and helpful. Safe neighborhood and great window view of the Vatican. Bathroom was very small.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved the location. We had a family of 5 and the stay was really good. Only minor drawback was the hallway noise when other guests came in. But overall a really good stay and we would stay here again (and recommend to our friends).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent place to stay near Vatican City"
Overall it was a great experience! The location was amazing... just a block from the Vatican wall. Pasquale was an excellent host, and very responsive to our needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"As close as you can get to the Vatican"
Pasquale is a really great guy! He works hard for his guests, and seems to be a very genuine. The room was clean and comfortable, and was very affordable for the four of us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location but dodgy external shower"
Positive is location for sure. Really close to the Vatican & access to the Metro nearby. Downside is our choice of bedroom with external bathroom. We had 3 singles for me & 2 young kids (7&9 yrs). Bedroom was fine but could do with shelf space (for keys, wallets, water bottles, etc). External bathroom was a cheaper choice, but always been ok in other […] places. Bathroom was a good size but shower was hopelessly & needlessly small (50cm x 50cm, less than 2'x2'). The bathroom had plenty of space so don't understand why the shower is like this. Never seen anything so small before...not even in caravans. Breakfast is inclusive but we were there for 4 nights and everyday it is the same apricot flavoured tarts, sugared croissant & toast; a rotation every few days would have be nicer. Even the kids gave up on the tarts by the 3rd day. Also managers are not present at the hotel throughout the day. It is a small apartment with 4-5 rooms and you are left pretty much to your own devices. If you need concierge or someone around then this is not the place to choose.

"Great service and Location, steps from the Vatican"
This hotel was great! It made us feel at home. Pasquale is a great host. He made sure we were taken care of and helped us with information to get around the city. the breakfast was included with croissants, coffee, Juice, pies, and that espresso and Capuccino in the mornings. I would definetely book it again the next time I am back in Rome. The room […] was clean, comfortable, the bathroom was great. The vatican is only across the street from this hotel only 1 min. walk to the Vatican Museum and 6 from Saint Peter's squareThanks Pasquale. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fine cheap bed in city centre"
Great bed, poor breakfast (only non-perishable things, no fresh crossaints or bakery goods, no fruit), also a little hyperactive cleaning lady which changes position of nearly all your things :). However price/value in that location is very good, we also appriciated coffee machine and hairdryer in room and Pascal is very nice guy!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Ottima posizione, titolare gentilissimo e simpatic"
B&B situato vicinissimo ai musei vaticani e piazza San Pietro. Pulito anche se la struttura è un po' datata. Vicino ad una stazione della metrò. Ottimo come base di partenza per visitare questa meravigliosa città.Genuine Expedia guest review

La ubicacion es perfecta, a pocos minutos del Vaticano. Comunicacion con el resto de Roma muy buena en metro y bus. Zona muy segura. Si a ello le añades que el dueño de este Hostal, Pasquale, es muy atento y majo, no puedo mas que recomendar esta estancia al 100%.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, everything else not great"
08/18/14 Ellen K
So, the two upsides of this are that for the price, you get a good location (5 min walk to the Vatican) and the air conditioning works well. The downsides, however, are numerous. First warning, do not book this hotel if you are bigger, taller, or claustrophobic. The shower is literally too small to be called a shower. My stepdad is 6 foot 3 and could not bend down or turn around in the shower. Even I am only 5 foot 2 and and felt too cramped for comfort. Also, the breakfast here isn't really breakfast. In your room, there is a tray of packaged dried bread and cartons of fruit juice. On our last morning there were even packaged of supposedly "no refrigerator needed" tiramisu. You will probably have to go elsewhere for breakfast. Last notes, the room becomes cramped if you have extra beds added or have big luggage. It's a good size for one or two people traveling light though. If it weren't for the places location, I would have said 2 stars. Not the greatest place ever.
"Had high expectations, only an average B&B"
06/28/14 SuchitraR303 Chennai (Madras), India
I came to Quo Vadis with very high expectations. First I assumed it was a hotel, its not. It was just a normal B&B in an apartment complex. Francesca was very friendly, the team was very hospitable. I asked for pick up from the train station and drop to the airport and we planned to stay in Rome for about 4 days. My family has 4 adults (Parents aged 50+ and my brother and I are 20-somethings). We asked for a 4 bedroom, which was definitely utterly cramped for us. This room would have been cramped even for children in their preteens. You could barely do a 360-degree turn in what looked like a make-shift bathroom (however I should praise the exhaust system of the bathroom! There was no proper door, it was more of a shutter, but there was no odour from the bathroom at all!). Breakfast was a joke. But the location was unbeatable. Restaurants all around the place. My favourite was the pizza joint right opposite to this complex. From the complex, you could see the walls of the Vatican City - that was a wonderful sight! We spent most of our time outside since there wasn't much to go back to the door and do. The price is basically for the location alone, not for the actual services of the B&B - so on hindsight compared to the other cities I visited in Europe, this was expensive! Overall, I had high expectations of the place, which were not fulfilled so I was disappointed. But my visuals of Rome and the Vatican more than made up for my experience of the city!

From the beginning it has been a pleasure! After booking our dates plans changed needing to stay another night. I contacted Pasquale and he responded very quickly. He told us no problem it will work out. I was also worried about how to get to his place at 10:30 at night. He told me no problem he would have someone pick us up if I gave him our flight info. I figured I would have to pay to get to his place and would rather have him arrange it since it was my first visit to Roma. I emailed him a few times confirming and he was so nice and told me not to worry he would take care of it! And he did!! He met us at the front door when we arrived. He could not have been any more pleasant. Specially meeting us at about 11:00- 11:30 at night. He went over everything with us and didn't even make us take care of any paperwork until it was convenient for us! The place is in a very safe area and you have to go through two secured doors before entering the courtyard to the rooms. There was 3 of us staying here and was perfectly fine. We had our own private bathroom a few steps from the room. It worked out perfect. Plenty of hot water and kept very clean!! We had fresh pastry every morning!! Very good. Also he supplied us with tea, expresso if we wanted to make it and other little goodies to grab on the way. We had one problem, we broke the key to get into the second set of doors and worried how we were going to get in. Lucky for us there was another guest who came about 5 min later. Because we did not have a phone to call at the moment and being 11:30 at night we were a little worried about the morning due to us having to catch a tour at 7:30 am. When we got to our room we were able to call and leave a message and was able to email him. Even though we were not able to speak to him directly he took care of the problem right away without us even knowing since we had to leave early in the morning. When we got back in the afternoon we called him and he met us at the door to let us in since we did not have the other key yet. ( he left the key in our room when we were out). This was what we were hoping since we figured someone would be coming around to get in. We had a great laugh and it happen to be the joke every time we had to unlock the door! Pasquale was so great with everything I can't thank him enough for such a great stay and we haven't even left yet. We leave in the morning and he is going to meet us to wish us safe travels on our next journey and make sure the transfer to the airport is on time! Thanks Pasquale for a great stay and for having such a great personality and very welcoming!!
"Quite a view!!"
10/14/13 bcaruso7 Fort Riley, Kansas
My husband and I stayed here 2 nights while in the city. We loved the location, the view and the price. We paid 90 Euro for a 3rd floor, 3-person room over looking the Wall! It was the "green room". The owner was very nice and easy going. Only complaint I had was the round, accordion showers. We're both about 6' and there are no shelves, so it became quite a challenge to reach my shampoo on the floor in the tiny space. Considering all the other positives, we were completely willing to deal with the shower and it makes for a funny story now. :)
"Great find - would stay here again"
10/19/12 KC_kaz London
We stayed in a quad room which was large, clean and comfortable. Choice of a breakfast spread in the room or at a nearby cafe less than 20 metres away. Excellent location - 5 mins walk from metro station and next to Vatican City. Vatican wall directly across the road from our window (what a view!) Pasquale, was an excellent host. He made us feel very welcome and he was very helpful - lots of tips upon check-in and even greeted all 4 of us by our names daily! Nothing I disliked. FYI, for those who do mind - toiletries are not provided.
"Another excellent stay at QuoVadis Roma2"
08/22/12 Mike A Hornchurch, United Kingdom
2nd time we have stayed at this hotel, and this time with the family. Had a larger room, and admittedly its a little snug, but all we used it for was to sleep and wash, so was perfect for the needs. Location wise...fantastic...especially for the Vatican, and if you take the trouble to ask Pasquale his advice for where and when to visit it is well worth it, as he will save you queues, cost and time. The taxi service was excellent, and Pasquale and Francesca were extremely friendly and helpful with nothing too much trouble. The staff that cleaned the rooms every day were also very friendly and always had a smile. Another thing worth noting is that the area is a very safe, worth considering if with a young family, and its also just around the corner from one of the best ice cream bars in Rome. Overall, another great experience in Rome, and would only choose to stay at the Quo Vadis again, for all the reasons mentioned above. Mike, Fiona & Family
"you get what you pay for"
12/13/11 gael f Croft-on-Tees, United Kingdom
First the good points, Pascale & Francesca were excellent hosts, incredibly friendly and helpful. I could not fault their customer service skills, which were first class. The place was spotless and the room was cleaned daily. The principle good points are the location, a stone’s throw, quite literally, from the walls of the Vatican City. The price, 80eur per night, in Rome, bed space tends to be very expensive, so to get a place at this price so close to the centre of the action is a real find. The area is very safe with Police patrolling all the time, (see how many uniforms that you can count) Now for the bad points, There is only one, and that is the room size, ours was very small, we are talking swing, cat, and room here, very tiny. You are given the option to have a breakfast in your room or to use a voucher in the local cafe, use the latter option as the room is too small, and also in Rome, do what the Romans do, relax and watch the world got by while sipping an expresso al fresco at the cafe. We asked for the room overlooking the courtyard, and thank god we did, because at night and in the morning it was very peaceful, particularly as we had to leave the window open during the night due to the heat. The room across the corridor which was much bigger overlooked the main drag, the via Leone IV, and the traffic noise was deafening, (I was passing by while the room was being cleaned and the door was open) so bear this in mind. Another point worth mentioning, there are two Quo Vadis, 1 & 2, I is in the via Leone IV, and 2 is on the Via Germanico, we got lost initially not knowing that there were two buildings. One final point, Pascale offers an airport service 100eur return, it is well worth it, because Rome’s rail transfer to metro system, is a nightmare, particularly when you have luggage, it is not like London Paris or Madrid. In conclusion we would stay here again
09/30/11 maritsaki Athens, Greece
(+) Pasquale (who runs the rooms) is absolutely great. Cheerful, kind, gentle, amazingly communicative, always at our service, with a big smile and with fun and joy, did anything he could to satisfy our stay. And the area is perfect too. Safe, right next to vatican and st. Peter and metro station just on the next road. (-) Breakfast rather tricky. It was either a coupon for an italian breakfast at a cafe around the corner, or breakfast in the room. The Italian breakfast is coffee & croissant (as we found out), and the room had no space for having breakfast, but on the bed. However, room breakfast was quite poor, and rather inonvenient to walk 5-6 metres away of the room and get water from the bathroom to fill the coffee machine, so we got the coffe&croissant at the cafe. Good, but not a breakfast. Room really small for 3 persons. Actually it was a double room, in which an extra bed probably was put instead of the wardrobe, so we concluded that was the reason why there wasn't a wardrobe in our room. The room had no night tables, very inconvenient for 3 girls in the room.. No 24h reception or baggage storage as mentioned. The a/c (or something like it) which was on the floor had to be moved outside on the balcony, otherwise the doors wouldn't close. Shower so small, had to put the shower curtains aside and have the bathroom filled with water all over.
"Enfin une adresse pour découvrir Rome."
05/26/14 Marina M
Nous avons séjourné, à trois, une semaine au printemps dernier dans ce B&B. Connaissant Rome, je ne savais pas à quoi m'attendre avec un hébergement en B&B pour un tarif très intéressant... C'est donc agréablement surprise que nous découvrons cet établissement niché dans une résidence bourgeoise contre le Vatican. La chambre est simple et spacieuse pour trois amies, la literie est très confortable, une salle de bain simple, fonctionnelle et privative. Cafetière expresso, bouilloire dans les chambres pour le petit déjeuner en chambre, là aussi simple mais convivial. Le plus : idéalement situé au Vatican et proche des métros (même si nous avons tout fait à pied Rome n'est pas bien grand!) Le grand plus : la vue sur le Vatican et l'entrée mythique de son musée. Une vue que l'on croit réservée aux palaces. Le grand grand plus : le gérant Pascual de bonne humeur et avec ses conseils de restaurants non touristiques... un régal! Un établissement à conseiller vivement pour un séjour touristique et culturel bien rempli.
"Famiglia con 2 figli da Modena ...ci torneremo !"

Ci torneremo di sicuro.
