Hotel Gravina San Pietro

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I just got back from a trip to Rome. We stayed at this lovely little hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were spotless. The location was convenient for the Vatican. Several buses from the bus stop, a 5 min walk away, will take you into the city. Fantastic restaurant next door. A very pleasant trip

Large group of girls arrived fairly late in the evening but were dealt with swiftly by reception- always friendly. Id booked a single occupancy room which was huge - the ensuite and all facilities were clean, air conditioning etc great. Only critism Id give was that the hairdryer was extremely poor. Would have been useful to have had tea/coffee in the room especially as some of our trips meant that we had to leave our rooms by 6.30am. Breakfast was basic but good. Bed was comfortable and my 3 night stay, 4th floor, good wi fi, was uninterrupted and did the job for another great break in Rome. the hotel arranged taxis for us to get to and from the airport as well as early morning trips.

We have spent four nights here in this lovely convenient hotel. Bus stop just 100 metres away gets you wherever you want. The restaurant next door is as good as you get in Rome. Breakfasts are simple continental self service with no frills. Perfect when getting up and out around Rome. Rooms are spotless and spacious but with limited storage so I had to use my small case for the duration of the stay. Really convenient for the Vatican but as our tour started early (8.00) at the Vatican Museum on the other side we chose to book a taxi (€10). Walking home from St Peter's Square is no problem whatever age you are. I would certainly visit the Gravini San Pietro again.

Initially the hotel was hard to find but we got there eventually. The rooms are basic as expected for the price. There is a fridge with drinks and snacks. THIS IS NOT FREE despite other reviewers saying it was. That was a bit of a surprise at the end as I didn't see anything in the room saying these items would be charged for. The room was cleaned every day. We had a small balcony (which we didn't use but if you smoke it's ideal). The shower was lovely. There is an overhead very high pressure shower as well as a hand held shower unit. The room also had a bidet. We did experience and issue with ants. My son was actually bitten one night by a red ant. The cleaners did fix this and sprayed everywhere and I got the impression this might ne an ongoing issue. The breakfasts were ok. They have scrambled egg, ham and cheese, and hot dog type sausages. They also have what looked to be tinned fruit. They provide cereals which I tried one day bit the mill wasn't cold (or very nice). I ate cakes and a croissant most mornings. The cake selections are lovely. Marble cake and mini muffins. They also have jams to go with the croissants and bread. There are two coffee machines and hot water and tea bags. There isn't much storage space in the room so if you are there for longer than four days (or if you've brought a few outfits for each day) you will probably live out of your suitcase. The staff we came across were all friendly. The street the hotel is on is really nice. Lots of restaurants and cafes. We went to the restaurant right next door to the hotel on the last night and I have to concur with all the other reviewers here, it was lovely. It was actually the best meal we ate the entire time we were there and this was due to the food but also the atmosphere. All in all a hotel which has everything that you need with no frills.

This hotel have an awesome room air conditioning!!!! Rooms are nice and clean. Recommended +++++ Really close to the Vatican and good service. Bathrooms are nice, clean, and Moderm. Safe inside the room.

Very good location to Vatican just 10 minutes away and perfectly within easy reach to other tourist destination. Helpful staff reception. Very clean rooms , thumbs up. Towels changed everyday! Good choices of breakfast. Near San Pieter train station 5 minutes walk. Bus stop just outside hotel. Nearby restaurants 5 minutes walk. Grazie Mille!

The Hotel Gravina San Pietro is a nice little spot. It is well situated to St. Peters and offers a nice breakfast. It works well if you are looking for a nice hotel that is not costly, but offers good value. If you get a chance to have a balcony over looking the Vatican - that certainly was something that was very cool indeed, even for a hotel that would have cost much more. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were nice enough considering where you are.

We looked for ages for a decent hotel with free breakfast and this was by far the nicest we could find for it's price range. Rooms are modern and have plenty of space and a balcony, we asked for a room higher up for a better view and were given a room on the fourth floor. The ac is adjustable and the bed was very comfy, also plenty of wardrobe space. The only downside of the room was that the shower is very small and quite hard to fit into and move around in. The breakfast was very good, staff very friendly, all around great experience!

Stayed in a triple room (Room 502) with a great terrace overlooking dome of St Peters. Really good breakfast with everything you could want. Rooms are fresh and clean. Staff are lovely and really helpful. Only 10mins walk to St Peter's Square but beware pick pockets. Restaurant beside hotel had great Italian food.

Arrived to Rome in the evening and struggled to find this hotel which is up a side street off one of the main streets near the Vatican City and were greeted by a very helpful gentleman who spoke great English and checked us into our rooms and took time to talk us through the top attractions on a giant map and also recommended some local restaurants. The room was clean, tidy and spacious complete with free wifi and a safety deposit box for the essentials. Large bathroom with a nice powerful shower and all the basics. Breakfast was a small buffet with a variety of food ranging from chocolate muffins and cake to croissants to yoghurt, peaches, cereal and scrambled egg and sausages. Brilliant views of St Peters Basilica from the balcony bar at the top of the hotel which is open from late spring. In conclusion a small hotel located close by the Vatican city which is perfect for a basic place to sleep for a weekend in Rome as a couple or adult family.
