Il Cantico provided my wife and me with exactly what we were looking for in Rome -- a comfortable, clean, attractive room in a well located venue with good food and drink at a modest price. Friendly staff, great view of St. Peter's from the roof, an excellent breakfast, and good service all around. Various minor problems caused by aging facilities, but you can't have everything. We recommend the hotel to guests who are not too fussy about this sort of thing.
There are two ladies who work here during the day who are fabulous. They are extremely helpful and kind. The rooms and showers are excellent, the location is also good. This is within walking distance to the vatican, maybe 15 minute walk. It is worth knowing that there is a great breakfast place opposite the hotel called Pappagallo. Also there is a fantastic sandwich place nearby called Bono Bottega Nostrana. The reason I haven't given it 5 stars is due to a few annoyances. The first was the door not locking when I arrived. The room was switched but unfortunately the only available room had a disabled toilet. The second problem was the blinds opening seemingly by themselves around 6am which was a bit strange - this only happened once. Finally the mattress in the new room I was given was uncomfortable and seemed possibly broken, I think the room was 111.…
We stayed here for 2 nights and the service was brilliant. The ladies on reception were very very helpful. The room was tidy and clean. Beds were comfy. Short walk to supermarkets and restaurants. Quiet area.
Very beautiful hotel with very helpful stuff. Room was clean, bed very comfortable. There are in the corridor water cooler and you can fill your bottle. Glass bottle you will find at the room. Very good idea. Breakfast good: omelette, croissant, cheese, yogurt, coffee, water, juice.
Nicely located close to the Vatican, safe area, modern building with car park, very friendly staff, after Covid-19 understaffed and top terrace closed. The breakfast was less than usual I was explained but it was very little so you can skip it for the price. It was not busy so rooms very quite. We slept well. The simple double room is ok in size with a nice balcony. The bathroom is very small and the shower had signs of mold/fungi. I asked the cleaner to remove it but no success. For the price I was disappointed.
Stayed over New Year period. Beds were very uncomfortable, sunk in the middle they were changed but still the same. No room service for food or drink,no tea/coffee in room. Breakfast booked,but finished at 9.30 to early. Staff at reception were not very welcoming. Positives about staying here, near st Peters square and the metro.
We stayed here several nights arriving early after a long flight from the states. They were very accommodating in getting us into a comfortable room so we could relax and unwind after a very long transatlantic trip. Everyone was so helpful from explaining how the cab system worked to how to walk to the Vatican which is a short walk away. They have free parking and a beautiful breakfast buffet included in a very reasonable price. The rooms are somewhat spartan but have all the necessities needed including a very comfortable bed, minibar and lockbox. Our room even had a small private patio that looked out over a park.
We loved this hotel! The hotel is modern but within walking distance to the Vatican. Breakfast each morning was good and the room was comfy with a great view! The only downsides are the distance to the rest of the sights in Rome, the bed was hard and bathroom a bit small. Other than that, we had a wonderful experience!
This hotel was a little out of the way, but within walking distance to the Vatican area, if not other major tourist attractions such as Roman forum etc. If you enjoy a quiet area and walking, this is a nice choice. If you aren’t as mobile, it may not be the best choice. Clean, minimalist, but updated rooms and a decent breakfast. Close enough to public transportation lines as well. The cherry on top is the beautiful view from their rooftop terraces, which are lovely at sunset and dawn.
I have visited this hotel for two days, in occasion of the yearly convention of my trade union. The rooms are extremely spacious, comfortable and clean. The kitchen offers a wide range of dishes prepared in an extremely professional way, which results in very tasty dishes for a very reasonable price. The location is a few hundred meters from S Peters square. The staff is particularly kind and at disposal for any request. A special thanks to Agnese, the bartender who has been extremely kind and accommodating. Strongly recommended. Photo from the balcony.
