Certificate of Excellence
Palazzo Cardinal Cesi, only a few yards from St Peter's Square, on Via della Conciliazione, is an oasis of peace and spirituality drenched in history at the very heart of Christendom, with the enormous privilege of being able to stay so close to the Holy Father's residence. As you enter through the imposing door, leading to the secluded cloisters, experience the reassuring sensation of taking a step back into a bygone age, leaving behind you the hubbub of the city to enjoy the luxury of settling down in an elegant haven, surrounded by every comfort of to the highest standards of first-class accommodation, where everything has been carefully designed to welcome you, and to make you immediately feel at home.

Neighbourhood
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.

Only about 28 rooms at this hotel, located 100 yards from St. Peter's Square. Building is from the 1500s, so the rooms are not spacious like modern hotels. Hotel has lovely interior garden and is loaded with history. The staff members were wonderful, especially the evening

A dream place to stay, only steps away from the front of the Vatican. Yet, it’s such a relaxing environment. I will only stay here when I visit Rome. The staff went out of their way to help and provide great recommendations. They had a limousine take us to the airport, as part

Lovely property, with a gorgeous courtyard and very close to St Peter's. The hotel was very peaceful, it felt like a nice Catholic retreat, but only in a good way! I had an international flight that got in very early and the staff (maybe seeing my exhaustion) was very kind and

I do not know. The hotel staff will organise a taxi. Taxi fares are broadly similar to fares in most cities.

Hello, I made a reservation for a shuttle service, $30 euro round trip. It was not private, it was shared ride about 6 other people. You can also get a taxi, not sure of the cost. Hotel is about 25 miles away from FCO. You can get a private car about $65.00 Euro one way, setup with the hotel. Hope this helps. Enjoy your trip.
