About Palazzo Cardinal Cesi, Rome

4-star hotel with free breakfast, near St. Peter's Square

An oasis by St. Peter's
Peaceful Palazzo Cardinal Cesi (built in 1520) offers a quiet stay up the street from St. Peter's Square. The hotel is adjacent to St. Peter's Basilica, the Sistine Chapel, and Vatican City. The Ottaviano metro station is 1 km north and Castel Sant'Angelo is 550 meters east.

A nice Roman stroll
Some must-see sights can be strung together for a walk through Rome's key attractions. You can start by bearing east 1.7 km to the Pantheon and continue east about 6 minutes on foot to the Trevi Fountain. From there, the Spanish Steps in Piazza di Spagna are a 10-minute stroll.

Monks' dining room
This elegant hotel offers a free breakfast in the Refectory, where monks used to dine twice a day. Free WiFi is also available throughout the common areas, including the beautiful courtyard. There is also a rooftop terrace to look over the city.

Recently-renovated rooms
Dark cherry furniture and tiled floors highlight the recently-renovated guestrooms, while remotely controlled curtains and lighting make for a high-tech perk in an ancient building. Guests find flat-screen TVs with satellite channels and there are towel warmers in the bathrooms.
