Superb 9.0 From 58 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Can't beat the location
Very close to St. Peter's Square. Got friendly and quick responses to our questions, and at check in. We walked from Roma San Pietro station (about ten minutes). Apartment is spotlessly clean, and the common area fridge is restocked daily with water, juice, milk, and yogurt. Breakfast is one croissant each, but you can have unlimited coffee and tea, which we appreciated.

Ideal Place to Stay
The location was perfect in our opinion and the food recommendations in the area given by Emilia were delicious and reasonably priced. We would definitely choose to stay here again if we returned to Rome.

Very Good 8.0
Great location.
Close to St. Peter’s bascilica. Goood air conditioning. Staff was very helpful. Clean rooms. Easy walk to restaurants and museum. Espresso and croissants for breakfast. Beds are not comfortable and although the actual rooms did not smell like smoke ....the lobby and halls smelled like smoke. Safe neighborhood and you can walk at night/late.

Location, location, location
Pros: Close to Vatican, bus/metro, restaurants, souvenir stores, grocery store, safe to walk. Emilia, the owner, speaks English and provided me with Lactaid, a milk for lactose intolerant people like me. Thanks, Emilia. Owner is very nice and accommodating. Cons: buffet breakfast is deceiving. It only consists of 6 thinly sliced loaf bread, small package of crackers (2/package), a small package of toasted bread (2/package), jams, a package of croissant, milk, coffee, juices, 32 oz of bottled water, fresh croissant and yogurt. What I expected upon seeing the word buffet was a typical American breakfast buffet. When I travel to Europe I always stay in hotels with buffet breakfast. It typically consists of assorted cut meats and cheeses, eggs, sausages, croissants, rolls, pancakes/waffles, pastries, fruits, veggies/salads, rice, pasta, juice, coffee, tea, to name a few. So I was disappointed with the buffet breakfast Sotto Cupola offered me. It should have been called continental breakfast, not buffet. Sotto is an apartment unit with 3 bedrooms, a very tiny dining/kitchen area with a mini fridge and stove. It's surrounded by other apartment buildings, with some of the units being rented out as guest houses or bed and breakfast. It's a block away from a busy street. The entrance to the street leading to the apartment displays large garbage bins with overflowing garbage making it look trashy.
