Location is ideal for bus routes into the city

Posted Jan 30, 2017
Pros: the spacious bedrooms
Cons: Being able to adjust the air conditioning from the room - currently, reception have to do this
Location: Close to the main bus route into town
The hotel staff were amazingly helpful and friendly and made sure our first stay in Rome was a memorable one and we will definitely be back. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and well equipped with the exception of a kettle which was a little bit disappointing but didn't make a huge difference to us. The breakfasts are fresh with plenty of choice and very, very good coffee available. The hotel is a few hundred yards away from the main bus route into town which takes about 15-20 minutes; the buses can be crowded at peak times so be prepared to stand and hold on! Overall, we were delighted with the standard of service at the Cardinal hotel and would happily recommend it to anyone visiting this beautiful city.

Nice hotel but in a poor area and over priced food

Posted Sep 8, 2016
The room was lovely and the view was excellent but it was in a rough area with no restaurants around meaning we had to eat in the hotel and the food was very over priced for what you got.

Pleasant but tired.

Hotel was pleasant but tired. Paint coming off room walls and ceilings. Light bulbs not working. Tired bathroom but good shower water pressure. No coffee machine ?? In Italy ? Famous for their coffee. Doesn't make sense. Swimming pool again was pleasant but tired. Green algae above the water line. Staff were good and the food was fine.

Nice hotel Can be more organized from checkin staf

Posted Jul 24, 2016
When arrived booked room with balcony, but given non balcony room couldn't accommodate that evening, had to wait till next day, but given free meal - drinks to compensate, hotel staff very friendly, struggled to give directions on how to get around, pool area very clean organised, taxi handy to get around- Vatican City 15 mins walk overall very nice hotel.

Posted Jul 14, 2016
Staff were wonderful. Very friendly and most were multi lingual. Hotel lovely and room cleaned with clean sheets everyday. Restaurant fabulous again staff were lovely. Would go back again. Blonde receptionist (sorry can't remember her name)was especially lovely especially on check in when we were exhausted.

Nice hotel, very clean and has a lovely pool.

Posted Jun 26, 2016
Very pleasant stay and pool made it very relaxing. Food quality and service at dinner not fantastic - better off eating out. The house salad (St Peter's) is the exception.
