Fodor's Review

Set in a former monastery—still an extraterritorial part of the Vatican—magnificently abutting Bernini's colonnade of St. Peter's Square, the Paolo VI (pronounced "Sesto," a reference to Pope Paul VI) is unbeatably close to St. Peter's, with guest rooms that are luxurious, comfortable, and amazingly quiet. Replete with a stone terrace that directly overlooks Bernini's 17th-century porticoes, this hotel enjoys one of the most spectacular perches in Rome. For truly exceptional rooms, ask for the "Super Deluxe Superior" rooms on the piano nobile (first floor). Within breathing distance of the residence of Pope Francis, it's no surprise the management here are devoutly Catholic, as you may gather from the framed portraits of the pope on the front desk and the daily prayer slipped under your door in lieu of a newspaper. But heaven can wait once you settle into your breakfast buffet on the wonderful rooftop terrace and drink in the view of Michelangelo's great dome.
