Excellent location, well managed, clean & very hos
excellent location, very near the south side of the Vatican with very convenient bus service from Roma Termini train station. And Paola, the manager, is a wonderful, helpful host! I suggest giving them a call to discuss special "deals" before booking!

Perfect Stay Next to Vatican City
The Pope's Window was hands-down the best hotel experience we had while in Italy. Paola allowed us to check in at 11am and was incredibly helpful in helping us plan the rest of our trip. She even had breakfast sent to our room the night before we left Rome so we would have something to eat before our very early train. The hotel itself was incredibly clean and comfortable. The air conditioning worked perfectly (could not say the same for all of the hotels we stayed at in Italy), and the bathroom was a great size with good lighting. The hotel is small with only a few rooms, but it operates with the utmost cleanliness, professionalism, and service. The location was fantastic - right across from Vatican City in a cute little street with several wonderful restaurants (we highly recommend Pizza Zizza for a quick bite). We will absolutely stay here again if we come back to Rome - you can't get a better value than The Pope's Window.
