“Great location , good value”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Great location in the middle of best shopping and most important tourist attractions. The staff were very kind and helpful. The breakfast has limited choices and time need to be reviewed to be more convenient for the customer.

We stayed here in early August and booked a triple room through LateRooms.com. Hotel was easy to find from Barberini Metro station (Spanish steps station is just as close) On arrival room was not made up for 3 but this was quickly sorted out by the hotel staff so not a problem. Room was a great size, bathroom was lovely. Airconditioning was quiet enough to leave on all night and was needed as it was very hot all day (38 in shade) and stayed in the 20's at night.
Breakfast was fine, continental with lots of 'sweet' items but also had cereals and toast etc with fruit juice, tea coffee. Only 18 seats in breakfast room but we didn't have to wait for a seat any morning.
The staff were all very helpful and all spoke english.
The hotel is about 10 mins walk from Trevi Fountain, 5 mins from Spanish Steps and about 15/20 from Piazza Navona so very central and easy to get to all main sights.Plenty of places to eat in the area as well.
This is definitely a hotel that we would stay at again.

The Cecil is located centrally to most of Romes top attractions, the staff are exceptionally helpful and the breakfast substantial. If, like us, you aimed for standard accommodation concentrating on location and cleanliness then the Cecil fits the bill. We had a recently refurbished bathroom but a shoebox room with the bed being a mattress on a raised platform. One had to step over our suitcases to move about the room. Notwithstanding I am sure there were more substantial rooms and I would recommend a viewing of your intended room prior to acceptance of the key. Dispite the size of the room we stayed I have fond memories of our stay.

Room Tip: Check the room first.

Dear Guest,
We read carefully your answer and we understoodt which was the room you stayed in. Our architect built the room considering our Japanese guests, and, in fact, our guests from Asia really love it. Bathroom inludes also colours in the shower and the bed is almost on ground level, with some steps on the side. We understand the problems it may create for guests from other countries, and we are sorry you couldn't stay in the standard ones. If you had shown us this problem, we would be very glad to change the room. We thank you anyway for your response and we hope to see you again in the next future.
Regards.

I chose Cecil basically for its location, unbeatable to reach everywhere in Rome either walking or by the easy- to- reach public transport. First good tip: The online reservation worked fine and I got what I have booked, what is not very common in Italy. Once there, we found a kind and very supportive staff. The rooms ( two, one double and one triple ) were comfortable, of an unusual good size for the rate. Breakfast is also very good and complete. On the need-to-improve side: maids did the cleaning in such a fast way that they probably forgot to sweep the floor.......
Very good price/quality ratio, certainly to be recommended.

This was a really good value for the accommodation. We didn't have a big budget, and so we were impressed with the service and luxury of this hotel for the lower price than many we looked at. Everything was fresh and clean, the people there were very helpful, and our stay was very pleasant.

I cannot stress enough just how important a decent and comfortable hotel can either make or break your holiday, and I believe the Hotel Cecil and its staff deserve a 5 star rating for a 5 star service. The rooms were clean and tidy, and lets face it, who really spends most of their vacation within the hotel itself unless for some reprieve or when calling it a day and the staff were very friendly and helpful, Would stay again. Grazie.

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.
