I wanted a hotel for our six day stay in Rome that was close to what we wanted to do, yet a place to relax after the long days. Palazzo Cardinal Cesi was the answer! Just walking through the front doors was the peace that I needed. The staff is amazing, the rooms were very comfortable, the location is perfect.... More

Well, you don't get to stay much closer to the Vatican unless you get an invite from the Pope. Turn left out of the front door and you're less than 100m from Piazza San Pietro. The hotel is a little unusual in that you enter up a few steps through the doors (which are locked after 19:00 with key entry)... More

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful hotel at the end of June for three nights. Right from start to finish we knew it was a great choice. You really can't be any closer to St Basillica, just right on the door step. The hotel had organised our Papal assembly whilst we were there and over all nothing was... More

They helped us with everything from dinner suggestions and reservations to tours of the area. Breakfast was great with a wide assortment of food on the buffet. Will stay there again in a heartbeat.

Great location just walk out the front door and you are steps from the Vatican. Rooms are typical European size, quiet location, minibar, refrig, TV and Wi Fi connections throughout. Bathrooms are equipped with amenities including hair dryer, although the shower is tiny. We opted for included breakfast and this was more than we expected. Hot eggs, meats, cheeses, fruits,...

Your location at Palazzo Cardinal Cesi is bar none if you wish to visit Vatican City. Walk out the front doors to a beautiful view of Saint Peter's Basilica. The rooms and beds are comfortable but not excessive. The showers stay hot. The staff is friendly and multi-lingual. The food is good. The environment is homey. If you can afford... More

This is a beautiful place we have had several special requests and they have all been immediately addressed with professional curtesy. Nothing we have asked for has been denied or met with a bad attitude. The bathroom in our room is very small but who needs a large bathroom on vacation. They have a breakfast buffet with a large variety... More

We stayed here as a family due to proximity to Vatican and St. Peter's. As others have noted, rooms and bathrooms are very small but clean and the building itself is historically interesting and beautiful interior. We did have an issue with one of our rooms having no A/C so it was very uncomfortably hot. When we notified the front... 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.
