    This literally is the closest hotel one can get to St Peters Sq. We arrived late at night and it was very quiet all around. The giant doors were electronically opened and we stepped into a darkened walkway, lit by large lanterns with candles, along...More

    We had only a few days in Rome and booked into the Palazzo Cardinal Cesi because of its closeness to the Vatican - and it's insanely close! It's pretty much the last building before you enter St Peter's Square itself. It was built in 1400,...More
