As you enter through the imposing door, leading to the secluded cloisters, experience the reassuring sensation of taking a step back into a bygone age, leaving behind you the hubbub of the city to enjoy the luxury of settling down in an elegant haven, surrounded by every comfort of to the highest standards of first-class accommodation, where everything has been carefully designed to welcome you, and to make you immediately feel at home.

Amazing location, just about 200 m away from Piazza San Pietro. Wake up and leaving hotel the first thing you see is such an impressive view. Besides, you can go walking from here to the main places of Rome. And Rome... is unique.

Location is key! This is a great boutique hotel that is as close as you can get to St. Peter’s Basilica. Easy walk to most areas in the city of Rome. Step outside the hotel for the best night view of St. Peter’s. Inside the hotel has a very nice, quite open courtyard.

The Palazzo Cardinal Cesi hotel surpassed our expectations. The staff were very accomodating, the room clean and comfortable, the breakfast...outstanding. The location was perfect and our next trip to Rome will again be at this hotel. If I were able to give this hotel 10 stars I would.

Location! Location! Location! You can't get any closer to St. Peter's square, it's right outside your door. Our room was small, but clean. The bathroom shower was small, but knew that going in from reviews, it had hot water so I was happy! The bed was very firm not soft, but after the first night I was so tired from tours and walking that I didn't mind. We luckily brought our own pillow from home. Staff was courteous and very friendly. We got in from an early international flight from USA @ 9:30am, check in was at 2, so we walked around ( we're able to leave our bags with them) so much to see within walking distance, St Peter Basilica and River Tiber. Then they were able to get us in an hour early and already had our bags brought to, our room. Great restraunts within walking distance. We bought a 3 day bus pass ( at little shop right next door) and were able to hop on the bus ( convenient bus stops nearby) and go all over Rome. Definately would recommend this place. Had a wonderful time!!!

This was our first stay at the hotel. The comments made by other reviewers are so accurate. The team that run the hotel are so welcoming and helpful. From arranging tours, dinners reservations and cars to take us to dinner or to the airport - nothing was a problem. It is a small hotel that offers breakfast daily which was very plentiful and a great range, We spent most of our time visiting the Vatican and St Peters so the location was perfect. Stepping out of the hotel door and seeing the basilica lit up was a real treat. Although the area has a lot of tourists it is quiet in the morning and at night and is lovely to walk around. It is not to far to walk across the river and to explore other neighbour hoods and to catch the hop on hop off bus which we used. Then coming back to our perfectly formed hotel which was very peaceful
