A sleek two-star property housed in a gorgeous palazzo, this hotel is a quiet retreat not far from the Vatican.
Pros: Cool, modern décor and high ceilings. Historic building. Quiet, convenient neighborhood.
Cons: Rooms near the reception pick up noise. No real common areas.
The cool Hotel Giuggioli is housed on the first floor of a beautiful palazzo on quiet Via Germanico near the Vatican and St. Peter’s Basilica. Those after calm and convenience will be happy at the Giuggioli. It’s a reliable, professional two-star establishment, with a few sleek touches thrown in for good measure. Sleek minimalism reigns supreme here—and pretty much the only splash of color you’ll see in this cool cat is the flamboyant red painting that hangs over the reception desk. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel.
The Hotel Giuggioli’s nine guest rooms are very clean and boast super-high ceilings and stylish décor. The clean lines and slick chrome-and-charcoal color scheme create something of a “metrosexual’s bedroom” feel. Soft recessed lighting and attractive artwork create a calming environment, and all rooms are equipped with standard amenities including air conditioning, a mini-fridge, TV and telephone. Some rooms also offer a small balcony (ask ahead).
The private bathrooms have an equally modern vibe, with large tiles, cool glass and dark brown tones. Some come with a shower while others have a bathtub with shower attachment (ask ahead if you have a preference). All bathrooms offer toiletries and a hair dryer.
There isn’t much in the way of communal space, but the breakfast/bar area adjacent to the foyer is pure hip café—dark woods and postage-stamp-sized tables crammed into a tiny space with street views. This is the area where guests and enjoy breakfast, included in the room rate, or a small selection of drinks that can be ordered from reception throughout the day.

About the Hotel Giuggioli neighborhood
Located across the Tiber River, the Vatican and Prati are unquestionably majestic. St. Peter's Basilica is the focal point of the Vatican, which is the world's only neighborhood that's also a nation. The Vatican and Prati area is pleasant, with tree-lined streets, wide boulevards, and newer buildings. This is a great area to stay, as hotel rates are often lower, hotel rooms bigger, and nights quieter than in other Roman neighborhoods. The area is two stops on the subway from Piazza di Spagna.
