Reviewed July 16, 2013

We had a wonderful time at the Hotel Cecil and would not hesitate to go back. All of the staff deserve the highest of praise as they were courteous, kind and extremely helpful. Room was always clean & tidy with fresh clean towels given when requested. We enjoyed the breakfast each morning. A special mention to the reception staff who would take the time from their busy schedule to chat to us about Rome and Scotland. Please take the time to visit the roof top garden it is well worth it. The hotel is perfectly situated to reach all of the major attractions. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to our friends.

Room Tip: A room with a balcony at the back of the Hotel.

We only stayed 2 nights but were very comfortable and the staff were helpful. The best thing about this hotel though is the position. just a few metres from the top of the Spanish steps. The rooftop is fun to have a drink and enjoy the view too.

Room Tip: i paid for the more expensive room so were at the back and maybe bigger. not sure

Dear guest,
we are sorry for your comment, but wi-fi in the room is new and works fine. Maybe the password used was the one for the hall. Also, t is strange that we provided you with dirty towels, considering we receive clean towels every day from the laundry. We know that it is hard to have all the guests satisfied. Our breakfast provides also all the Italian cappuccinos and coffees the guest need, in addition to regular American coffees.
We are sorry for all the problems you had during your staying, but sometimes we need our guests to be comprehensive.

Hotel Cecil is a nice hotel in a great location (less than a five minute walk to the Trevi Fountain & Spanish Steps!) The staff was very friendly and helpful. However, the maid never came after our first day, so we had to reuse our towels. Also, we had to take cold showers our last day there which was unfortunate. Not to mention they had to fix our door because the key wouldn't work. The power went out late one night, but the concierge fixed it right away. Even though I had a few problems, I'd recommend the hotel for its location!

Dear guest,
thank you for your nice review and for your comprehension. There was a real problem with hot water due to an electrical damage in the street but it lasted only 4 hours and then we repaired it. We apologize for the inconvenience and we hope to see you again sure that you will not experience these problems more. Sorry again and best regards.

We just returned from a stay at Hotel Cecil. We found the staff very helpful, the rooms clean and the location close to everything. One of the members of our party lost his passport on the way to the Hotel and had to extend his stay and the staff was very accommodating in honoring the price of our original reservation for the extra day. The breakfast could be improved by adding some cold cuts, but it was adequate, I would have liked a roof terrace like in other hotels in Rome, and I believe they have one but it was not used for breakfast on the days we were there. I would recommend Hotel Cecil to other travelers.

Room Tip: The quadruple room one of the members of our party had for a couple and two teenagers was big and co...

Have just returned from a wonderful four night stay at hotel Cecil. The staff were fabulous and extremely helpful. The rooms were spotless and well appointed. Breakfast a continental and could do with a few more savoury items and some fruit but that aside we ate well. Not enough is made of a beautiful roof terrace. Hotel Cecil is perfectly located to explore the centre of Rome with the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain within ten minutes walk. The nearest Metro station is similarly very close. All in all a great little hotel.
