The picture of the vatican is clever photography - its a good 20 - 30 minute walk to the vatican. The hotel is of average quality - the plus point it has a pool - the minus is there are not enough sunbeds and the water was freezing. The breakfast was good - cooked or cold food available. I felt... More

We stayed in a average size,clean room with a view of the pool. The bathroom was a good size with a powerful shower and a magnifying glass for close ups which was a great idea. The bed was comfortable and hotel quiet so we had a peaceful sleep. The negative aspects of this hotel are; The hotel is difficult to... More

This hotel was very comfortable and very quaint. Located 1/4 mile from the Vatican. Has a lot of charm and great hotel staff. The rooms were very clean and the air conditioning was very overpowering. The bar staff were very helpful as well.

Buy tickets at the newsstand next to mcD. Taxi from hotel to Vatican is about 10 euro, to colloseum 17 euro. Staff is willing to all answer... More

Our twin room was small but modern-looking, with a wonderful view. The staff were friendly, however they are often short of change and prefer to put purchases on the room tab. The breakfast buffet was good, and the restaurant was a nice area, however, food was nothing special. Unfortunately, the hotel seemed to be in the middle of nowhere (there... More

I have scored this hotel very good as there is no good category and I felt it was better than average although had we remained in our first allocated room 116 I feel I would be writing a less favourable review altogether it was like a prison cell. Fortunately we were reallocated to 322 a room with a balcony and... More

We booked The Cardinal Hotel via Orbitz about 5 weeks in advance for one night. We were attracted to it by the price and the balcony views of Rome. Upon arrival at the hotel, after an international flight and paying for a taxi because it wasn't near the Metro we were told they were overbooked, but we would be transferred... More

We choose the hotel for the pool but didn+t use it. It is not so central but when you learn the bus lines it´s quite alright. Clean with nice rooms. The breakfast were nothing special. The hotel food is not so special.

Hotel recommendations and pictures promised a bit more than realized. Don’t get me wrong, hotel was ok and decent. It was quiet and service was ok, even though, English was quite limited. However, there were some little things (6) that bothered us. I already knew that there is no gym at hotel but there wasn’t any contract made with local... More
