Stayed here and could not have had a better time. The hotel is steps from the Vatican and within easy traveling to all the other great sights in Rome. My husband and I loved sitting in the courtyard after sightseeing all day having a late night bite to eat with a glass of wine. The rooms, while a little small,... More

if your next visit to Rome is to see and visit the Vatican, you can't do better than this hotel. The Cardinal Cesi is located less than 1 block from the entrance to St.Peter's square. The rooms are small in size with tiny bathrooms that can only fit one person in them at a time. The shower size will challenge... More

I chose Palazzo Cardinal Cesi due to its proximity to St. Peters Square. This gem of a property felt more like home than a temporary place to rest my tired body. A mere block from the most amazing church on earth! The room was quite lovely, the breakfast was terrific. Front desk was friendly, helpful and generally all around delightful.... More

We chose to stay here again because we loved it so much back in 2011. It is located 'on the doorstep' on the Vatican, making it extremely easy for us to take part in the Papal Audience - The hotel serves breakfast earlier on a Wednesday to allow for those who are attending this. The rooms are exceptionally clean and... More

This hotel is located only a block from St. Peter's Square. We stayed here four years ago and again this October. Evelin, the concierge, remembered us. She is the best and gave us fantastic recommendations where to eat. We had our favorite meal of all time at La Caletta, because of her recommendation! If you want to go out for... More

We chose the Palazzo Cardinal Cesi to start our trip to Italy and in celebration of our 30th Wedding Anniversary.... It was the perfect choice, just steps from St. Peter's Basilica in a peaceful, beautifu section of Rome. The entrance hall is stunningly beautiful with an open garden patio and courtyard entrance that takes your breath away. The location couldn't... More

My uncle suggested this hotel as it was close to where he lives. When we were booking our vacation with our travel agent, Lisa, from Beach Bum Vacations, she also said how great this hotel was. Their recommendations did not disappoint! Pulling up in our car to the hotel and right in front of you is St. Peter's Basilica was... More

50m from St. Peter's Sq. One couldn't ask for more from this hotel. The ladies on reception were really helpful, booking taxis, recommending hotels and making reservations and the house Chianti was a San Lorenzo and it was beautiful. Our twin room was a bit small but we were out most of the time anyway and didn't notice the four... More

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
