Residenza Paolo VI Review

In a former monastery that's still an extraterritorial part of the Vatican, this hotel (pronounced Paolo Sesto) enjoys one of the most spectacular perches in Rome—magnificently abutting Bernini's colonnade of St. Peter's Square. Guest rooms are luxurious, comfortable and amazingly quiet; for a truly superior room request one on the piano nobile (noble floor). Within breathing distance of the papal residence, it's not surprising that the management is devoutly Catholic: framed portraits of the pope adorn the front desk and a daily prayer is slipped under your door in lieu of a newspaper. But heaven can wait once you settle into your breakfast buffet on the wonderful roof terrace and drink in the view.
