I was here for 4 nights with a small group of friends before taking a cruise. We chose this hotel for its location and were very pleased with the accommodations, although the tiny bathrooms REALLY need updating. I have seen other reviews complaining about the noise. We did not experience any of those problems - perhaps some rooms open onto...

We booked a room at this hotel and from the start, the proprietors were helpful with information about nearby restaurants, Vatican visits, and much more. We had a twin room, which was clean and cheerful, and the breakfasts were great! We would have NO problem recommending this hotel to anyone who wants a taste of Rome and the Vatican. Walking...

Very nice and pretty. The garden area esp. pretty to look at while having a drink and snack from the bar. Our room was a 2-twin room, very nice yet small but we weren't planning to be in the room so weren't worried about that, would've liked a better view since we had no view at all just of an...

The hotel is just steps away from the Vatican. I believe the hotel was a monastery, which is interesting and unique. The hotel lobby area is an open-air garden where you can sit and have cocktails, breakfast, and dinner. It's beautiful and peaceful. The staff is exceptional and will do anything and everything to please their guests. The rooms are...

The place is astonishing. An ancient Building with a charming courtyard. Frescos on the ceiling. Rooms are very simple and essential. In the morning it's noisy and you cannot sleep cause cleaning service on the corridor which starts very early. Breakfast is ok but not quality food. Staff was professional.

I wanted a hotel for our six day stay in Rome that was close to what we wanted to do, yet a place to relax after the long days. Palazzo Cardinal Cesi was the answer! Just walking through the front doors was the peace that I needed. The staff is amazing, the rooms were very comfortable, the location is perfect....

Well, you don't get to stay much closer to the Vatican unless you get an invite from the Pope. Turn left out of the front door and you're less than 100m from Piazza San Pietro. The hotel is a little unusual in that you enter up a few steps through the doors (which are locked after 19:00 with key entry)...

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful hotel at the end of June for three nights. Right from start to finish we knew it was a great choice. You really can't be any closer to St Basillica, just right on the door step. The hotel had organised our Papal assembly whilst we were there and over all nothing was...

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighbourhood Profile
Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighbourhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighbourhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
