Just got back from a five night stay at the Palazzo Cardinal Cesi. The hotel is magnificent! You cannot beat the location - steps from St. Peter's Square and and the Vatican. Yes, the rooms are a bit small, especially by American standards, but they are very comfortable. And if you are spending a lot of time in your room... More

Stayed here last weekend with my mum. It's a really lovely, quiet hotel very close to all the sights. The garden is beautiful and nice place to have a bite to eat and a drink after a long day of sightseeing. Bathroom and bedroom are smallish but not tiny. Beautiful hotel and would definately stay here again if i'm ever... More

I just returned from Rome on 3/13/14. While in Rome for a week I stayed at the Palazzo Cardinal Cesi. It was a wonderful experience, from Anita and Evelyn in the office, to Joanna who manages the bar and kitchen. People went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. They were very knowledgeable about Rome and were very... More

When our transport dropped us off at the Palazzo Cardinal Cesi we knew we'd made the right choice. The hotel is literally steps from St Peter's Basilica and we enjoyed seeing the view of the square every time we left and returned to the hotel. Had to pinch ourselves to make sure it was real. The hotel is small and... More

This is our second visit to Palazzo Cardinal Cesi. We stayed here last February and when we decided to return with friends this was our first choice. The staff are courteous, helpful and friendly. They phoned taxis, looked up day trips, booked restaurants and printed out our boarding passes. After a morning of walking and sightseeing, the courtyard at Palazzo... More

I very much enjoyed my stay at this small hotel steps from the Vatican. The staff was efficient and very helpful confirming reservations for me in Italian and making me feel welcome. I enjoyed relaxing in the lovely serene courtyard with a glass of wine after a hectic day of touring Rome. The room was well appointed and the included... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Palazzo Cardinal Cesi. The hotel is located on the road leading up to St Peter's so is ideally located for visiting the Vatican. We walked to most of the places we visited in Rome but there are also good public transport facilities in the area. Rome was surprisingly busy in February and it... More

Lovely hotel, 1 min away from the entrance of St Peter, so, I went there every time I returned to the hotel or left from there for a quick look. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Room size is good for Rome, in principle you will sleep there and they you are out and about. Nice courtyard is very pleasing... More

Stayed in the hotel for a night. It is literally across from the Vatican's St Peters Square. The staff was super friendly. Wireless internet is free and fast. My room had a double bed. Very decent, with cable tv. Breakfast is included and is really good, with a large selection of cold and hot items. Can't beat the breakfast buffet.... More

My wife and I stayed in the Cardinal Cesi in September 2010 for our honeymoon and had such a great time that we returned in 2013 with our entire family. The location is amazing. Once you walk out the door you are staring right at St Peter's Basilica. It is a truly magical experience, especially when there is a papal... More
