“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed the Palazzo. As others have noted the location is perfect for visits to the Vatican, however it is also only a 10 min walk to Piazza Navona or Trastevere. Breakfast was very good and the outside garden was a treat, to relax and unwind. The staff is friendly and helpful.

My wife and I were here for a Rome week-long meeting that involved a lot of business at the Vatican. This meant a simple stroll up the street to be there. Felt very safe all the time and the hotel was very good. The rooms were small as expected, including the shower which would not suit a large person. The breakfasts were good, and wine around the courtyard made for a nice end of day moment. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

The great location is the attraction for this hotel. Walk out the front door and you are right there in front of St. Peters. There are many shops and good restaurants in the area. The hotel rooms are small and the bathroom is like being in an RV bathroom. Don't drop the soap or you have to open the door to bend down to pick up the soap. The breakfast is very good. If you do not want to walk far to St. Peters then this is the hotel for you.

I stayed here for a long weekend from the moment we arrived the staff were so so helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. Ity is a very quiet place to stay. I felt really safe here as the doors are always locked at night, It is peaceful and calm. I will come and stay here again it will be the place I will always stay in when I come to Rome

Room Tip: The top floor was lovely and quiet

Room Tip: I would think any room is wonderful

I agree completely with amm4747. This hotel is a wonderful oasis against the moneychangers in the temple. It is right next door to the Basilica and vendors and buses are everywhere. But when you step inside the massive door the quiet strikes you immediately. (The door is locked at night and you use your key to enter so it is very safe.) The hotel is beautifully kept and the staff is amazing! Yes the room is small, but the beds are wonderful. I loved the shower because it had a sliding door that locked and kept the water inside. I'm a large person and partially disabled and it was the easiest in and out shower that I experienced on the entire trip! They have a beautiful dining room for breakfast, with a little room for a light supper in the evening, which they do serve. We had pizza there one night and soup and salad the next. We only had one full day in Rome, saw St. Peter's in the morning and took a 4 hour golf cart tour in the afternoon so the quiet garden was very welcome when we got back to the hotel. It feels like a monastery garden in one of the holiest cities in the world, so what could be better? Loved it!

I stayed here for a week and it was lovely. The rooms are small, but nicely furnished, clean and surprisingly quiet. The baths were very small by American standards, but contemporary wall to wall marble, chrome and glass, so very nice. A hearty breakfast was included daily in a beautiful dining room, and there was bar service in the open courtyard/lobby in the evenings. (No other meals available on site.) This courtyard was my favorite. The photos on thier website do not reveal how delightful it is. After a hectic day on the streets of Rome, returning to sit in the open air and enjoying a glass of wine by the fountain and schrubbery was wonderful.
The location is outstanding too. Step out the palatial front door, look left and you are at the base of Vatcan Square. Still in walking distance to all the best restaurants and most of Rome's antiquities.
Keep in mind that half of this property is still a monastery, and a quiet reserve is expected. If you plan to party, find a chain hotel.
But if you want a classy, gracious environment, the Palazzo Cardinal Casi is perfect.

Room Tip: Only one tiny, slow elevator. Seek a room on the first or second floor. I often had to climb to the...
