If you have read the other reviews and are concerned about this hotels bathrooms I would say not to worry. They are a bit small but certainly not so small that you can't fit in the shower, unless you are extremely large! This is a beautiful and peaceful hotel that is very close to the Vatican. I was actually surprised... More

Just a few words to say that we had a fantastic time in the hotel. All the team who took care of us has been very kind and helpful, the organisation of our convention was outstanding and the food and wines were delicious. All the 97 participants will keep very nice memories of their stay at the Palazzo Cardinal Cesi... More

Great hotel . Very close to the Vatican . Excellent breakfast , peaceful courtyard , nice bar, good location, air conditioning . Don't stay in rooms 101 to 106 as they are small and loud. Room 202 is nice. Take a can to the Spanish steps or plaza novana for better restaurants and bars . Would recommend staying here !

If you are planning on spending time at the Vatican or the Vatican museum this place is ideal. The place is an oasis of peace two minutes from the entrance to Bernini's colonnade. The rooms are simple but clean, the breakfast plentiful and the service friendly and helpful. We loved coming back at night and seeing the Vatican lit up,... More

The staff is very friendly and very helpful.They are like my Italian family. The hotel location is perfect for Vatican events. The accommodations are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is fantastic. I have stayed here on several occasions and it is my preferred location in Rome.

The location is unsurpassed. Walk out the front door and you are immediately close to the Vatican City and all the history it has to offer. Otherwise hop on and off a choice of Tourist Buses and all Rome is accessible from 100 yards down the street. The room was clean, cool and comfortable. No bath but we were aware... More

My sister and I were in Rome from May 06th - May 09th 2014. It was my 4th trip and my sisters first. I booked the Palazzo Cardinal Cesi not just for its location but because of the exceptional reviews that it received on this website. AND WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED.

Very close to St. Peter's -- we loved the location. We took a couple of evening strolls and enjoyed the area when it was cool and the crowds had thinned out. The service was excellent. The rooms were small but quiet and clean.

We carefully researched hotels prior to our trip to Rome and chose this one due to the proximity to St. Peter's. We loved the location. We were able to attend early morning Mass at St. Peter's as well as being able to be in line at 6 a.m. for the Papal Audience. We took a couple of evening strolls to... More

We were quite excited to be staying in a converted Cardinals palace and on arrival you are greeted with a lovely cool palazzo with a bar area perfect for escaping the activity and heat of the city. However on entering the room, although pleasant, we were quite shocked at the basic and small nature of it. We have stayed in... More

Palazzo Cardinal Cesi, only a few yards from St Peter's Square, on Via della Conciliazione, is an oasis of peace and spirituality drenched in history at the very heart of Christendom, with the enormous privilege of being able to stay so close to the Holy Father's residence.
