Fantastic hotel located almost next door to the Vatican. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice each day. Hotel staff were very helpful and gave us very good information. Rome is a brilliant city to visit and we'll definitely be visiting again. Restaurants in the area were quite expensive when next door to the Vatican but a couple of... More

In the heart of the Vatican, this hotel was prefect for what we needed. We wanted to stay close to the Vatican and you can't get closer than this. Warm and beautiful reception upon checking in. There is a snack bar service next to the reception area which is great but a little slow. The room was spacious and the... More

The hotel was very well located, near the Vatican. The hotel also enjoys a picturesque square where you can relax and enjoy the bar facilities. Whilst the room was quite small (no bath) the air con worked well which was essential given the heat (38 in August). The main selling point was the staff who could not have been more... More

In stand alone suite. Beautiful art work in bedroom. But bedroom up very narrow spiral staircase. Not suitable for many. Room also very noisy. No double glazing or any other soundproofing. Could hear entrance door shutting. Good air con luckily as very hot.

Stayed at the Palazzo Cardinal Cesi three nights (before and after an NCL cruise). It's in a fantastic location - literally just a few steps away from the Vatican! We could actually see the Vatican from our room. (We had to lean out the window a bit to see it, but we could see it!) The rooms were clean and... More

We were very pleased with our stay. The location was incredible--one block from the Vatican! The staff were incredibly helpful with providing useful and valuable information about times and techniques for visits. The hotel is quite nice--a bit pricey but the location and staff are worth it. Breakfast buffet was excellent.

This hotel far exceeded our expectations. Entering the front doors you enter a peaceful garden area completely removed from the noise and activity just outside. The rooms, as well, are so quiet, while we were still able to open our window and peer outside onto the busy street. Coming back from a busy sightseeing day it was so soothing to... More

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighborhood Profile
Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighborhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighborhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
