Amalia Vaticano Hotel3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The location is excellent, there are restaurants and shops on the street and it’s just a 5 minute walk to the Vatican museums and less than 10 minutes walk to the basilica. It’s a very safe area. The hotel is clean, the room is small with big windows and it’s very clean and it was cleaned daily. Shower was lovely and warm. Bathroom was small but it was just fine. It’s a lovely old building with air conditioning in the room. Staff were very helpful and friendly There were no tea and coffee making facilities in the room. We really missed this especially first thing in the morning or after a long day of sight seeing. It would have been nice.
The Amalia Hotel is perfectly located just 3 blocks from Vaticano. 2 blocks from the Ottaviano metro station. There are nice restaurants close for lunch and dinner. And some blocks away from really nice shops. The room was big enough with security box with a key (not a combination), frigobar, hairdryer. The mattress was a little hard. The only bad thing is that it can be noisy if you don’t have respectful hotel guests in the same floor. The staff was friendly and they all spoke English, and they let us extend the check out a couple of hours.
I was a little nervous about staying at a hotel that I had no affiliation with (i.e. Hilton, Marriott), but the Amalia was a welcomed change of pace. The staff made for certain our driver was at the airport to bring us to the hotel. From the moment we arrived, the staff made sure we were taken care of. Additionally, I was surprised at the location of the hotel, and the fact that everything we wanted to see, as it relates to The Vatican, was within easy walking distance. Try this hotel, you will love it.
Although I only had one night to spend in Rome, I'm glad I spent it at the Amalia. I would definitely consider staying here again next time I am in Rome. The location is great-- walking distance to the Vatican and St. Peters and very close to a Metro station. There are interesting shops and restaurants nearby-- be sure to check out the legendary specialty food store downstairs! Our double room was plenty big for the two of us and we had a great view of St. Peters and lots of natural light coming in through the window. The bathroom was definitely the most spacious one I've ever had in Italy! The room was clean, although it could have used a small tune-up (peeling wallpaper, some outlets that didn't work). Staff was friendly, helpful, and on the ball. Price was very reasonable all things considered. Thanks, Amalia!
Good value stay not far from the Vatican. In fact the location is very good - lots of restaurants, bars etc in the vicinity. Staff very helpful and friendly. Rooms large and clean. The only think that I thought could be improved was the breakfast which was very basic. That said plenty of good place to eat nearby
On our arrival at the hotel after an interesting trip from the airport. We were greeted by the hotel receptionist who was friendly and helpful. Our room was upgraded to a suite much to our delight.Reception were friendly and helpful with directions,and well supplied with maps of Rome and a fridge, where you could purchase ice cold soft drinks,at a Euro,which was cheep for Rome. Our room was on the 5th floor. We got into a liftmlift was straight out of Agatha Chistie,but modern. On our arrival at the 5th floor,we had to be buzzed into the corridor where the room is via cctv and intercom. This plus,you have to pass a 24hour manned reception,gave a feeling of security. Down the corridor we found our room. We entered in our living room,which had a sofa bed, tv, desk, chair and wardrobe,with safe and telephone,and window,and a bag rack. On the left was the large bathroom,with toilet,bedet bath with two shower fittings and sink with large mirror and hair dryer. All fitting in, with the style of the building. On the right was a large bedroom,with large bed, dressing table, chair ,draws and another tv.plus an aircon machine. Which in the unexpected heat of September was bliss. The whole suite was well decorated, and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was served on the 4th floor. Although the room was not big, the breakfast was good,and what I have come to expect in Italy. Fresh cakes, and pastries,which were delicious. Fresh bread rolls, cheese,cooked meats. cereals, ham, a selection of teas and coffees. The young lady was friendly and again the everything was spotless and fresh. Even on our last day when we were due to leave,and she let us have breakfast early she was still friendly. The night reception,phoned ahead,and arranged it. We used the hotel shuttle service.we were thrown by the what seemed hundreds of drivers withname cards. It took us a while to find our driver,then we had to wait,whilst he found the vehicle. It was really busy. Our journey to the hotel was a typical mad Italian drive,in a mini bus. I have to say our return journey was much more sedate,and very luxurious,in a nice black Mercedes,driven by a friendly and quiet driver. The hotel is tucked round a corner down a side street. At one end is the Vatican museum entrance, at the other its just a short walk round the corner to the underground. the other way is a 10 min walk to St Peters. The area is full of shops and places to eat and a wonderful bakers is just up the road. We loved this hotel.it's like its in anotger era,but totally up to date.
We stayed 4 nights and found the staff very friendly, the hotel was like walking into some 1930s movie. Very quaint, and the room was very spacious and air conditioned. It was also very close to both St. Peters and the Vatican.
We stayed in deluxe room for 4 nights. There wasn't a bath in our room, as we have expected, but both the room and the bathroom were spacious. The beds provided a good sleep. There was a fridge in the room and good air condition, which is an absolutely crucial factor during August heat. All the guys at the reception were very nice. There is an elevator. Breakfast room is very small, but the breakfast itself was quite sufficient for us. All in all we had a pleasant stay. One more detail: we ordered transfer at the hotel from and to Fiumicino airport. Both of them were well organized. They also keep the rooms clean and change the towels daily. Wifi was steady and strong.
It wasn't clear from my booking for Dependance Hotel that I would actually be staying at the Amalia. So it took an hour walking between the two and eventually gaining access to the room. To discover that the air-conditioner was not working. I walked back to Dependance Hotel and reported this. They told me somebody would fix it the next day. Nobody did. So another walk over to Dependance and this time requested an immediate room change. Which they did - to a much larger, nicer room, with working aircon - so my 3rd-5th nights staying here were fine. Locationwise, Amalia is ideal. Two minutes' walk from Vatican Museum. Two minutes to the nearest underground station. And five minutes from St Peter's Square.
We stayed in this small hotel for 6 nights in June and can't fault it. Firstly, the location is ideal and it was a pleasant walk every day from the hotel to wherever we were going (usually on foot, being the best way to experience Rome). The Ottaviano metro stop is a minute away if you need it. The breakfast each morning was excellent (especially if you have a sweet tooth!), served by friendly people, and the coffee was outstanding. Our room was spacious and clean and had air conditioning and a safe. There was also passable wifi. A special mention goes to Leonardo at the front desk who was very welcoming and helpful, giving us a map and marking all the places we should go to. He clearly knows the city well so ask him for advice if you need it! Would definitely stay here again.
