Although a bit more expensive than other hotel options, this modest property is in a great location, leading both up and down to all the main sites on this mountainous citadel. Good restaurant with comfortable, well appointed rooms, it's a good spot for a visit. Wifi is free, but extremely temperamental and unreliable.

I love lamb. It is my favourite meat. So when this restaurant advertised a special of roasted lamb, I put aside my usual hesitations about restaurants attached to hotels and gave it a try. When the food came, the meat was clearly not the lamb that was promised. I ate it and it was good but I told the waiter... More

Dear guest, We apologize for the misunderstanding likely by the waiter or the kitchen staff. The allegations of the waitresses are unjustified. We would like to have another chance to make you enjoy a good roast lamb. Best regards More

We only spent one night at Hotel Cesare, but it was a night well spent. The location is superb. The hotel is just a few steps from the highest of the parking areas in San Marino. It is a short walk to the main tower of Monte Titano, the Guita Tower, and not all that far to the other two.... More

Superb location on top. Just a short walk to the castles. Park in P6. Excellent service. We forgot our iPad and they we're more than accommodating to get it and mail it to us. The breakfast is a standard continental. The rooms are a little small but space is tight up on the hill. My main complaint is that the... More

As we approached San Marino we had no idea that the hotel we had booked was 'on top of everything' and were so exhilarated when we got there. We pulled over in the hire car just before the city gates and dropped the luggage then went to car park 6 - a short distance. Lovely warm welcome at reception and... More

Before visiting San Marino I was completely unaware that the historic centre of the town was more "mountain top fortress" than hill town, and only really discovered this fact as we made out way to Hotel Cesare. Lots of back and forth roads, hairpin bends and traffic made us glad of our small car. On arrival there was a bit... More

Very nice and clean hotel. The room was small but it had all we needed. Bed and pillow were very hard though! Breakfast could be a lot better. Only real minus was the "free Wifi". Worked so poorly/not at all! Unacceptable in our eyes being in 2015.

Dear Ms Gnocchina , thank you for your review! Some rooms are small but don't forget that we are inside Historic centre - and being property of UNESCO can not enlarge the Hotel. We are already taking steps to improve breakfast and thank you for letting reported. About WI FI FREE maybe only in the breakfast lounge work so poorly... More

A really lovely, clean, character-filled and reasonably priced 4* hotel with possibly the best, if not the highest location in San Marino. It's a slog walking up to from the bus station, especially with luggage (so maybe get a cab if you can find one) but its location is well worth waking up to. My room on the top floor... More

We paid extra for a room with a balcony with views over the valley. But the mountain was socked in with fog the whole time we were there--not the hotel's fault in any way, but we were really disappointed. The adjacent parking lot was completely full and we got a space only with luck as someone else pulled out. The... More

My partner and I stayed overnight in Hotel Cesare during a quick visit to San Marino. If you can get the right room at the right price then the hotel is a good choice. Whilst the location and views (if you get them) are a highlight, the rooms are at best 3 star. We paid extra and were allocated room... More
