Close to the Vatican City and a 5-minute walk from St Peter's Basilica, Hotel Atlante Star doesn't have to work hard to sell its location. Set close to the banks of the Tiber River in the centre of the city, the hotel is also close to Castel Sant'Angelo -- a fortress also known as the Mausoleum of Hadrian -- as well as the Piazza Navona, the Piazza Venezia, the Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain.
"One of the highlights" of the hotel is the Les Etoiles panoramic roof-garden restaurant, where "you can enjoy spectacular views of St Peter's Basilica while you eat", according to Lonely Planet. Careful selection is given to the Mediterranean and international cuisine served in this unique setting; the chef hand picks seasonal and fresh ingredients daily from local suppliers. In addition, the hotel uses its own extra-virgin olive oil, made fresh on its country estate just outside the city. A selection of top Italian regional wines is also on hand as well.
Recently renovated guest rooms at Atlante Star Hotel are decorated in contemporary European style; all are non-smoking and come with an en-suite bathroom and a marble Jacuzzi, as well as air conditioning and a mini bar. Some rooms have a view of St Peter's Basilica.
The hotel offers a free pick-up service from Fiumicino-Leonardo da Vinci International Airport, which is available from 7am to 9:30pm daily. This service must be requested at least three days prior to arrival. There is a charge for a transfer back to the airport.
