"Clean Hotel but Far - Service Not Great"
The first room we were given smelled like smoke (although it is supposed to be a non-smoking hotel). Reluctantly, they changed our room but the new room was next to something that sounded like a vacuum cleaner the whole time we stayed there. I am guessing it was the kitchen vent or something. There is nothing close to the hotel. The first night, we […] walked more than 30 minutes to find a restaurant. You can get to the city center using one bus. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Slightly Off the Beaten Path"
Although the Cardinal Hotel is close enough to walk to the Vatican it is a rather long walk and considering you will be walking to explore the sights in Rome this extra distance could be exhausting if you are also walking with children. I would suggest that tickets for the bus should be available from the hotel lobby. It was not easy to obtain bus tickets […] from the local vendors. We had to try three or four different places before we were able to obtain tickets. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fine for one night."
The hotel was pleasing to enter and the staff was great and responsive. The linen quality was marginal and one pillow per bed is not sufficient. The wi-fi access was cumbersome and clumsy requiring a password for each device. Our TV was not plugged in and working when we arrived and I had trouble finding the cable connection. The makeup mirror was loose […] and would not hold an angle so you could see your face. Little things, easily remedied but for one night, they added up to a lot. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The Cardinal St Peter was an ok stay for the price. The breakfast was ok, the location although outside of the city, was not bad, it was very easy to get around. My complaint would be that the amenities were minimal, the pool closed pretty early, all though it was good to have a pool, it closed at 7pm.The internet access was not that great. Wifi was […] only good in certain areas of the hotel. But I would still recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel very close to tourist spots"
Clean rooms, controllable beds, nice pool, and great view. I had a very relaxing stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Decent hotel near Vatican City"
Double bed was actually two single beds pushed together, which seems to be normal in Italy. Broad array of food for breakfast was very good. Safe in room. Jacuzzi tubs were cold, I thought they were supposed to be hot!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect hotel for a summer stay in Rome."
This hotel was one of the few in Rome with a pool which is a great feature if visiting Rome in hot weather. They even had cocktail service out to the pool which was an added bonus. The air conditioning in the room was really good as well, which can be a luxury in Italy. The beds were comfortable, room was spotless and the staff were all very helpful […] and spoke English. The only downside was the location. We had to take Taxis everywhere, which wasn't a problem since they arrived within minutes of the staff calling them but that expense can add up quickly. All the cab rides into the city ran approx. 15 - 18 Euros and approx. 10 Euros to the Vatican. Rome is extremely hot though so I highly recommend budgeting for the Taxi expenses and staying at this hotel. It was so nice to come back from the city in the afternoon and relaxing in the pool. Wifi and breakfast were good as well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cardinal Hotel St Peter is a Keeper"
The desk manager is welcoming. I was shown to my room readily, the room being and well laid out. For a woman travelling alone, I heartily recommend this hotel. The lobby and all common areas are comfortable, clean, and above all present as safe. The room service manager also keeps in mind the comfort of her guests. She brought me flowers after my first […] day. The neighborhood of the hotel is quite appealing as well. I book a second stay at the Cardinal Hotel St Peter, and toward the end of the stay, my mother will be joining me. I only recommend hotels of high caliber (either a well deserving 3* or higher) as a place for my mother, a retired educator, to enjoy. I am very much looking forward to our joint stay at the 4* rated Hotel Cardinal St Peter. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Room was very warm when we arrived but just had to ask front desk to turn on air. That didn't seem to be working too well. Opened the door to the balcony. Was slightly concerned that the balconies connected to each other. It seemed it would be very easy for someone to come into your room from their balcony. Poor design.Comfortable enough. Could have […] used a couple of extra pillows. Nice sized bathroom and shower. Liked having a balcony overlooking St. Peter. Breakfast was typical for all the Italian hotels we stayed in. I'm sorry I forgot the ladie's name that helped us check in- she was very pleasant and bright. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"About 1.5 miles to Vatican, 25 minute walk."
Good place, stayed here three times over last three years. Paid half of what I paid last year before booking on hotels.com. Clean modern hotel. Good brekfast included. Beds are hard, typical for Italy. Air conditioning in the rooms is very weak, couldnt seem to cool off the room, even at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I've stayed here before and would do so again, It's location to center of town is very good. I know of a few very good restaurants within one of this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"moderate hotel,terrible location"
the hotel overal is good,actually very good value for money,but the location is terrible far away from most rome attractions except for the vatican and st,peter's basilicaGenuine Expedia guest review
We were very impressed with the rooms because they were exactly as shown on their website. The hotel and room was very clean, staff friendly, and in a very good location. We took the bus (bus stop approximately 1/4 mile away) to the Vatican which was very convenient. If you want a formal lunch or dinner, there is a very nice restaurant in another hotel […] about 1 block away(please make reservations). The hotel has a continental breakfast but very minimal selection for dinner. I loved the outside pool, but unfortunately it was raining and a bit cool. The rate per night for this hotel was excellent. I would highly recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Better options are available"
It is an avg hotel. Location is not close to metro or good bus lines. Rome is beautiful though. Ask taxi how much it will cost and pay by the meter. We didn't do that and we're duped by one guy who took us for a ride.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place to stay"
Nice place to stay comfortable A little away from the coliseum and st john the baptist church. Close to the Vatican. Pizza 341 was a hit with the kids. Down Georgrio street toward the Vatican on the right.Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall I would say this hotel was good, particularly for the price. The staff was very helpful and though the location is a bit far from all the sights, it's only a mile walk to Vatican City. The hotel was very modern, especially compared to other hotels in Italy. However, we paid for a Class room with a balcony overlooking the city/garden and what […] we got was a tiny room with a balcony looking at a wall covered with some greenery. I guess this was the garden? Also, there was no sofa bed (where would they put a sofa bed in that tiny room?) and there was no tub, as listed. I think Hotels.com should look into this before listing a bunch of amenities that don't exist. We chose to pay more to upgrade to a room with a view, but I feel misled. Also, though everything was mostly clean, one of the towels had what looked like a blood stain on it (gross) and the "hot" tub on the roof would be lovely, if they actually heated it.

"Great mini break"
We had a great couple of nights in this lovely hotel. It was in a great location for the city, with either a 20 min walk to St Peter's of a hop on a local bus of underground. The room was very comfortable and quiet, the breakfast had a good selection and the staff were very helpful. Great views of St Peter's from our room! Would recommend this hotel […] to friends.

"Nice place to stay in Rome"
The hotel is modern as it doesn't have any of the ancient Italian aspects we expected in a European hotel. The staff was pleasant. The rooms were small but nice. The location was a short (and slightly costly) taxi ride from the center of Rome. But the hotel staff were able to get taxis there in less than 5 minutes. The breakfast was good and plentiful […] Italian food. Overall, we would recommend this hotel to others except for the distance from all the sights of Rome. We also had a problem checking in early. Our flight arrived in Rome at 9:30am and by the time we got to the hotel after 10:30am we had to wait until 1pm to check in. We did inquire about early check-in when we made our reservations and were told it wouldn't be a problem. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Modern looking hotel, Only had a piazza in the hotels restaurant and it was THE worst pizza I have ever eaten, was oven pizza machine made. Location was miles out about €14 in a taxi. Pool was almost frozen over. Staff were friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very poor breakfast... the food does not look fresh, the salami is very tattered and coffee tasted burned, bread was hard (many days old?)... and orange juice was syrup (unexpected of a 4star hotel)....... But of course the room is in good and comfortable condition, except for the aircon which is freezing, apparently the aircon thermostate is not w […] orking. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was pretty nice. It was great that breakfast was included. The room was a decent size, in my opinion. There were some deterioration on walls that was an eye site, but not too terrible. The walls were super thin so we could hear people talking in the hallway. The bus stop was fairly near. Metro was a bit of a walk, but manageable. For the […] minor inconveniences, I was overall happy with this hotel as my choice while in Rome. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice hotel ..........far from metro"
staff were nice and friendly .........no internet in the rooms ...only at the lobby and very bad connection .....very noisy room .maybe i was not lucky ,because hotel was full of young people ( 13 .to 17 years old )Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very good hotel"
We went for a romantic getaway, and it was very nice. Negatives are that the swimming pool isn't open until summer, positives are that the breakfast is lovely. We ended up forgetting a passport, and they contacted us immediately to say that it was safe :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Service was not good. Didn't seem to be enough staff and breakfast was poor! Hotel itself was nice, but cleanliness in the bathroom could have been better.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed for my boyfriends 30th The hotel is spotless and very nice looking. Although rooms are tiny. We paid for a superior room and I have stayed in premier inns 3 star rooms which are bigger and decorated just as nicely. The hotel bar always closed earlier than midnight as advertised which was very annoying. And after being told bar snacks would […] be available till 11pm we were refused food at 9.30 being told the kitchen closes at that time. VERY early closing time for a restaurant and we were not the only guests disappointed by this. There was never a bar person behind the bar we always had to ask the reception to call someone and it took up to 20 mins. I've mailed the hotel about this and no reply. It was a special weekend. We paid for 4 star service and it was not the level of service we received Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good swijmming pool and friendly breakfast staff!"
Great to have a swimming pool in Rome. Comfortable room, good breakfast and good bus just down the road into Rome. If you do go, however, do ask not to be at the back on the first floor. Balcony was a rather monstrous concrete affair and overlooked a ramp into an underground carpark. This was disappointing as everything else absolutely fine. I suggest […] they do some interesting planting to help offset the oppressive concrete. I am sure this doesn't affect all the rooms, however! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Staff steal, stay here at your own risk!"
On Saturday 7th July 2012 we left our hotel room, at 9am and went down to breakfast and then left directly from the Hotel. Upon our return to the hotel room in the afternoon I noticed that my mobile phone was missing. Later on in the evening at 7.30pm I noticed that my jeans were missing from the wardrobe. They had been hung up on a hanger the night […] before. When we returned to the hotel after dinner I realised that my polo shirt was missing as well. Both items I wore the night before and placed in the wardrobe. We left the hotel on Sunday the 8th July. When I returned home to the UK I noticed that my ipod which I had in my backpack had also gone! The Hotel reception said that maybe someone from outside had taken it or that I had missed place my things. The worst thing was that they insinuated I could be making it up as an insurance scam! They were completely uncooperative and told me all they could do was to suggest I go to the police station to make a report. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Lyckad vistelse i Rom"
Tillbringad några augustidagar i Rom tillsammans med mina ganska vuxna barn och valet föll på detta hotell pga läge och pool. När jag summerar dagarna är det enbart positivt. Hotellet infriade alla förväntningar med råge. Bra rum, bra service, härlig pool, underbar takterrass med utsikt mot Peterskyrkan. Frukosten var inte överdådig men fullt godkänd. […] Restaurangen på hotellet provade vi inte men det såg helt ok ut och priserna rimliga. En liten synpunkt är att pool och bubbelbad stängde kl 19.00. Det hade inte varit dumt att kunna svalka sig senare efter en varm dag i Rom. Men i det stora är vi nöjda. Något att tänka på är att i denna stadsdel är ganska många butiker och restauranger semesterstängda i mitten av augusti, den 15 augusti är dessutom helgdag då ytterligare mer är stängt. Bättre med öppethållande mer centralt. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tredje besöket, en besvikelse"
Kom för tredje gången till detta hotell. Vi återkommer för läget (lite utanför men lätt att ta sig in till stan) och poolen, inte så vanligt i Rom. Denna gång blev vi väldigt besvikna, priserna har gått upp, de vill utge sig för att vara 4 stjärninga (Italienskt 4 stjärninga ska nog tilläggas) men ändå har allt förfallit sedan vi var där första gången […] (2011). Panelen har släppt, väggarna är skavda, det är fukt/mögelfläckar vid poolen, frukosten blir mer och mer "Formel1" klass. De har sminkat över med lite nya rottingmöbler men det syns att pengarna inte räcker för att underhålla hotellet. Rummen är fortfarande OK, men inte mer. Synd på ett bra hotell, hoppas det blir bättre igen, som det är nu kommer vi inte att välja det igen. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
A good hotel with very helpfull staff. Rooms and beds are fine. Breakfast is free and crowded. Only WiFi in lobby. To go to Vatican take bus 98 or 916, buy tickets at newspaper stand next to mcD. 5 minute walk from hotel and 5 minutes with bus.Genuine Expedia guest review
