Residenza Paolo VI

Rated 8.8 in 550 reviews. 35 rooms.


Residenza Paolo VI has been inaugurated in 2000, year of the Holy Jubilee, as the only hotel in the Vatican Area. As an Hotel, which is located directly in the ancient wall of the venerated Augustinian Order, it offers an unusual atmosphere of spirituality, which grows up just thinking about the closeness to S. Peter’s Dome.

Offering panoramic views of Saint Peter's Square from its rooftop terrace, Residenza Paolo VI is a converted monastery with free WiFi. Just metres from Saint Peter's, the property is 15 minutes' walk from the Vatican Museums.

Classically furnished and all air conditioned, rooms here have an LCD TV with satellite channels, tiled or wooden floors, and elegant rugs. The private bathroom comes with a hairdryer.

Breakfast at Paolo VI is an extensive sweet and savoury buffet including scrambled eggs, cheese, cereal and yoghurt. Drinks and snacks can be enjoyed up on the terrace, with great views of the Apostolic Palace.

The Residenza is 700 metres from both Castel Sant'Angelo castle and the river Tiber. It has excellent bus and metro links around Rome, with the 40 Express bus stopping nearby.
