Nice hotel near Vatican

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 11, 2008

The four star Hotel Alimandi Vaticano is one of three hotels in Rome run by the Alimandi family. Opened in 2002, it is located right across the street from the Vatican Museum. It's not really near any other of the main tourist attractions, but there are two metro stations a couple blocks away, Cipro "Musei vaticani" and Ottaviano "San Pietro".

Each of the front desk staff were truly helpful and willing to give suggestions and directions. When we checked in, they offered to help with our bags and asked if we needed any suggestions for anything. We checked in around 2pm, and the girl told us that was a really good time to go to the Vatican Museum since there was a barely any line, so we went. Every morning there were lines all the way around the block. They also gave as their card and told us to call them if we needed anything at all while we were out.

The room was average size and the bathroom was fairly big. The rooms have a mini bar, safe, free DSL internet, direct dial phone and a desk. One major problem we had was that the rooms were not sound proof at all, and the hallways were not carpeted. We were unfortunately on the same floor as a family (or two families traveling together) that had at least three other rooms on the floor and just had to walk (loudly!) from room to room, talking (loudly!) at all hours of early morning and as late as midnight! I know this is not the fault of the hotel (and I did ask these people numerous times to quiet down, and they didn't), but if you are light sleeper I strongly suggest earplugs.

There was a huge selection at breakfast. It was the biggest one I saw anywhere in Italy. There was all of the traditional pastries, fruit, meat and cheeses and bread, but then there was also bacon and eggs, sausages, and even scalloped potatoes. The breakfast staff were also pleasant.

The elevator is big by European standards, but there are not too many stairs between floors.

We paid 200 Euro a night.

Unique Quality: There is a nice rooftop patio.

Directions: From Fiumicino Airport: take the Leonardo Express to Termini Railway Station. Then take the metro 'A' Line (red) to Cipro or Ottaviano.

From anywhere: Take the metro 'A" line to Cipro or Ottaviano.

From the minute you walk in the front door, located by the way opposite the old Roman walls of the Vatican and it's museum, the staff and surroundings are second to none.
There is a small bar area (with internet access) on ground floor, and a roof terrace with the most spectacular views accessible only by elevator.
The bedrooms are all beautifully furnished and decorated. Bathrobes and slippers await you when you open the door, and with the marble floors, they're welcomed. There is plenty of wardrobe space, a self programming safe and flat screen tv/dvd combi with ethernet internet connection in each room. The ensuite bathrooms had everything from toothbrushes to razors, piping hot water and lots and lots of fluffy towels.
Breakfast was buffet style ranging from traditional pastry fare to somewhat unusual King prawns that appeared on our last morning there.. but all top quality.
Reception and bar staff were friendly, helpful and very chatty. They had plenty of tips on sightseeing and museum times to visit and our last day co-inciding with a Roman holiday, the owner himself drove us to the airport in his van, insisting on less than quarter of the regular taxi fare.
The location is opposite the vatican museum and about 10 minutes walk from St Peter's and restaurants and Gelateria are all in abundance close by.

Unique Quality: The location of this hotel is one of it's outstanding characteristics being so close to the walled city but for me the staff and ambiance would be it's most endearing features.

Directions: Directly opposite the Vatican Museum entrance.
