Fantastic value and perfect location!!!

Location, location, location
Pros: Close to Vatican, bus/metro, restaurants, souvenir stores, grocery store, safe to walk. Emilia, the owner, speaks English and provided me with Lactaid, a milk for lactose intolerant people like me. Thanks, Emilia. Owner is very nice and accommodating. Cons: buffet breakfast is deceiving. It only consists of 6 thinly sliced loaf bread, small package of crackers (2/package), a small package of toasted bread (2/package), jams, a package of croissant, milk, coffee, juices, 32 oz of bottled water, fresh croissant and yogurt. What I expected upon seeing the word buffet was a typical American breakfast buffet. When I travel to Europe I always stay in hotels with buffet breakfast. It typically consists of assorted cut meats and cheeses, eggs, sausages, croissants, rolls, pancakes/waffles, pastries, fruits, veggies/salads, rice, pasta, juice, coffee, tea, to name a few. So I was disappointed with the buffet breakfast Sotto Cupola offered me. It should have been called continental breakfast, not buffet. Sotto is an apartment unit with 3 bedrooms, a very tiny dining/kitchen area with a mini fridge and stove. It's surrounded by other apartment buildings, with some of the units being rented out as guest houses or bed and breakfast. It's a block away from a busy street. The entrance to the street leading to the apartment displays large garbage bins with overflowing garbage making it look trashy.

Race car talk - Italian style
My 8 yo son and I, visiting the Vatican from California... enjoyed the breakfast room with the Pope - in cordial conversation.

Great guest house and great location
We were greeted by Emelia at about 10:00 AM. We were early as we had just disembarked a cruise ship. She arranged for our pick up in Civitavecchia and transport to the Sotto la Cupola. She even allowed us to check-in and leave our luggage early so we could begin our tour of Rome. The rooms were clean and well appointed; the kitchen was clean and stocked with a variety of breakfast and snack foods. Emelia was most attentive, helpful with maps and restaurant recommendations. The facility is 2 1/2 blocks from the south wall of the Vatican. Our two families highly recommend the Sotto la Cupola.

The owner, Emilia, was very helpful and congenial. The bedroom and kitchen were just as described. We found the apartment to be clean and comfortable.
