Peaceful getaway

Good clean room, adequate for family of 4. Staff helpful. Easy buses into centre from just around the corner - 571 direct to colloseum and 31/33 to Vatican. Print off a google map before you go, but map from hotel adequate. Pool lovely to cool down in after day in Rome. Breakfast adequate - plenty of pastries, coffee, juice, fruit. Rolls a bit stale. Bring your own decaf coffee! Wifi great in public areas of hotel. Evening meal - reasonable value for pizzas/pasta.

use hotel computer/printer in bar to print off advance purchase tickets for attractions. Also - go to the Vatican museum in the afternoon - no groups and no queues at all - we almost had the place to ourselves.

Good hotel

Staff overall was very friendly but there is a think fellow with glasses who works at the front desk who was arrogant and not helpful at all. The rest of the staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant food was not that good but breakfast was excellent. Location was good. The terrace restaurant was not open at all--or the hotel did not promote it at all yet on their site, that is what they show. Wireless service is not in the rooms at all just in the lobby. That 's not good. I can't recommend a hotel to friends because of the problem with wireless--none in the rooms!

Experience at the hotel was good. However it's located a little ways from the Vatican and other main features of Rome (about a 7 euro cab ride). Nice pool and room.

Cardinal St Peter Hotel review

We stayed at Cardinal for 3 nites prior to our cruise, 1 night after returning. Disappointments: The toilet was not secure to the wall in the 3 person/1st room. The closet door was off the rails and took a mechanic to open in the 2 person/2nd room. Our 1st balcony was over a sewer grade drain and faced a two story cement wall. The pillows are little more than floor mats. The restaurant and bar are also on Italy's schedule, open part time only. When Italy closes between 2 and 7 pm, the hotel restaurant/bar isn't open either. The Cardinal has umbrella tables in a court yard they close arbitrarily. No Ice (95% of Italy doesn't have ice) and tiny cups so bring your own solo cups if you want refreshments in your room. The local front desk staff do not want to be bothered with guests so forget about "concierge" services. The foreign non-local personnel (1 bellman & a breakfast attendant) were very nice and tried to be helpful. Free broad-ranged breakfast but the restaurant is not worth the prices in the hotel. Good news, the hotel is air conditioned and the bathrooms are sized well. It is in walking distance to grocery, coffee, retail shops and the bus stop.

Location not as advertised

First off - The location is advertised as a 15-20 minute walk from Vatican City/St. Peter's. It's more like 40-50 minute walk, and a long cab ride from all other major sights in Rome. Nearest metro stop is at least a 20-minute walk away, so we spent what we saved on this hotel on cab rides to and from different sights. Also, no wifi except in the lobby. Not a good value for a 4-star. Save your feet for exploring the parts of the city worth seeing (the neighborhood around this hotel is not scenic at all), and book somewhere closer to the central sights or a metro stop. It's worth the extra cost for a hotel closer to the action. On the plus side, the beds were extremely comfortable, the rooms were large.

Nice family hotel

Hotel was pretty good with good amenities and clean room. Our room had view of St.Peter's Bascilla from the balcony. The front-desk was okay, not very helpful in suggesting the directions. For anyone staying at this hotel, I highly recommend using the metro to visit attractions like colosseum, trevi fountain etc. We found that out on last day, its really easy if you know proper directions. Also buy a good map, the map supplied by the hotel is cut-off is not helpful

either walk for 15mins or take any bus towards vatican city to the nearest metro. From here you can reach almost all major attractions

Our stay in Rome

We arrived by train at the Termini and bought a map. It took us 2 hours to find the hotel because it was not on the Rome bus/train map and we had to stop at an Internet station to find the location. We wanted to bus/train there because it was more affordable. Upon arrival we mentioned in a humourous way that it wasn't easy to find the hotel and the clerk had no comment (not even a smile). After checking-in he gave us the missing part of the map (a photocopied piece of paper) that we needed earlier without saying a word. He definitely was not friendly or courteous. Our room was clean but it appeared as though someone had a party in that room. The shower tub was dented and damaged and the comforter was ripped on the inside. Throughout the city Internet cost 0.50 cents to use the Internet for 15 minutes, at the hotel it would have cost us 25 euros to use the Internet, so we didn't. What we did enjoy was the swimming pool after our 2 hours trek to the hotel, the breakfast, and the free baggage hold for after check-out. The lady clerk the next morning was much more friendly than the man the day before. We would return only because we now know how to get there, but we wouldn't recommend it to first time visitors to Rome.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Taking the bus to the Ancient City, Navona Piazza, Vatican City, and via Corso shopping was the most convenient and practical. The bus goes directly to the sights and less walking is required from the hotel.
