Stefania is a great hostess and know exactly how to keep her guests happy. We were able to check in early for our 2-night stay and upon arrival she, personally explain everything we needed to know about the property and the city. She also made recommendations for local authentic restaurants with gifts from her, 30% discount on one, and a bottle of wine on another one. Breakfast is included in the price, either in the room or at the facility next door. The room was superb, very high class, modern, CLEAN room and bathroom, COMFORTABLE BED, queen/king size, classy bedding, 3 sets of nice classy clean towels in 3 different sizes, eco friendly and nice containers of shampoo, shower gel, liquid soap, body lotion, shower cap, and more, a basket for used towels under the sink, YES they cleaned our room and gave us clean towels. The room has a small fridge/mini bar with items to purchase at a reasonable price, it's indicated on a card. The place is at a great location! We walked to the metro, about minutes and close to the Vatican Museum, about a 10-minute walk. We felt very safe, you get your own keys to the place and it's very private and secluded, and it has an elevator. There is a beautiful, private garden inside the building/patio. Stefania was very helpful, practical, and super friendly!!!! She kept in contact with us throughout our stay via WhatsApp, she was even willing to come from the other side of the city, after hours to bring an iron I requested. BEST EXPERIENCE IN ROME!

My wife and I had an excellent stay, the staff was wonderful, the location was perfect (very near the Vatican). They are dedicated to make your stay very pleasant.

New Design St. Peter is a great place to stay in Rome! Excellent location, clean room, comfortable room, attentive staff! Thank you for making my stay so enjoyable!

“Perfect location. The room was spotless clean and very nice decorated. We stay 11 nights Angelo went above and beyond to make sure that we had everything we need. The delicious breakfast was served in our room on time. Angelo was great from arrival to departure he arrange for us the pick up and drop off to airport on time great service highly recommend it. Grazie Angelo alla prossima.

Angelo is amazing, I fully recommended the hotel. Angelo is amazing goes above and beyond to help you in any way he can. The rooms have completely been remodeled.

Remodeled unit inside an apartment complex. “Not a Hotel/Palace”. Pics are misleading. Bed sinking in the middle, shower was the size and quality of a small RV. Multiple locked doors, feeling of walking to a prison house. Mechanical small elevator. Safer to take stairs. “4th floor”. Angelo was nice, room was clean, walking distance to Vatican. Local residents live in the “Apt. Complex”. Overpriced compared to options. Owner should be upfront about what he is renting to not dissapoint the tenant. Stop calling it a Palace. This is a NY style redstone apt. Complex. Im not impressed with this bldg nor Rome all together.

Very nice stay! Great location, great staff, and a very nice room! For breakfast, you can either have breakfast delivered to your room or get it at a cafe nearby. The cafe worked great for days when we needed to be up earlier, but having breakfast at the room was very convenient and nice!

Enjoyed our stay very much, wonderful breakfast, friendly and helpful staff, nice room.

This hotel is very nice. It is a converted apartment turned into a 5 room B&B, so very tiny enterence and either stairs or small elevator, but a very nice secure courtyard area for the apartment complex. There is not a common eating area, but breakfast is delivered to room daily anytime after 8am or nite before (pastries, juices, meat and cheeses, custom coffees-no eggs or cooked food). It is a 10-15 walk to vatican, so definitely north of the city. It is very close (2-5 minute) walk to subway terminal (which when we learned to use subway made location awesome-can be anywhere in Rome in less then 20 minutes for 1.5 euro). Somewhat of residential area, but plenty of small, affordable places to eat. Staff (Angelo) is very helpful (maps at front desk and a lot of information), always kind and accommodating. Rooms are spotless, and very new and modern with little cool things like original tile ceiling (lofted) and nicely decorated. There is an in room safe, shower only, place to hang clothes, but no real closet, and no dresser, or drawers to stash clothes, but had some open shelves. Have not stayed in Rome before, so I am not sure of room size in comparison, we has a queen bed (which was comfy and had nice sheets and duvet) and room to walk around, not crowded, but not oversized, bathroom was roomy and shower had great pressure and super hot water and fun lighting. We were always on the go, so did not stay in room a whole lot, but no issues with anything it had to offer.

Angelo was an incredible host. He was attentive, thoughtful and always happy to help with advice, directions and guidance. When we left a few things behind, he was happy to help us get them shipped back home. The room was perfect for our stay, combining the charm of an 800-year old Roma building with up-to-date amenities. Would love to visit again!

I would reply by saying that it is not true everything you say, but it is not correct because I am the owner, I read all my reviews about 182 and no one says of the same thing you say, (not even one) then I wonder how is it possible? that no one has ever had this problem, for a matter of logic I think the problems you've said do not exist. at this point I will reply with other reviews, before your booking and after your reservation. The date of your reservation Jun 17 To Jun 21 before your booking: "by A verified traveler Jun 12, 2018 Great Location 5.0 Great Location This is a great location in a residential neighborhood, close to the Vatican, metro stop, and good restaurants. Very helpful staff, and really comfortable. There is air-conditioning. My daughter especially liked the light in the shower. The only negative is that it was a bit confusing to get in. after your reservation: "5 out of 5 from Anonymous the Expedia Very close to the Vatican Posted Jul 23, 2018 Pros: Loved the bathroom! Well maintained, secure, and modern hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Many good restaurants within walking distance. Short walk to St. Peter's and the Vatican. "so I will not answer you, but the same people who have been where you were will answer you. I have two opinions the first and it can happen that there are some people who are not good at all, the second I think the most plausible one is that you were wrong, and then you got confused. after all the work done with seriousness and professionalism on my part and from my staff is not very nice to receive this review (singular only one) even if I repeat you are confused we hope that people like you that are confused go in a on the other side.
