Overview

A charming stay in the heart of Rome’s exclusive Prati district, walking distance from all the must-see sights

The Lowdown

Set in Rome’s affluent Prati neighborhood, Hotel Cicerone is a haven of peace away from the well-trodden tourist trail. This serene city hideaway has all the trimmings and trappings you’d expect from a four-star residence in one of the world’s most beloved destinations. The rooms are grand yet inviting, with all the mod cons needed for a comfortable stay. There’s also an elegant restaurant, Cucina&Pizza, serving classic and contemporary Italian cuisine.
Mostly though, this is an ideal base from which to discover the architectural wonders and artistic masterpieces of the Eternal City. Located smack-dab in the heart of Rome and just a short stroll from theVatican City, you’ll be able to fill your days gazing at Michelangelo’s frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, enjoying gladiatorial greatness at the Colosseum and Roman Forum, hitting the trendy bars in the hip Monti neighborhood, and tossing a coin – correctly, with your right hand over your left shoulder – into the Trevi Fountain.

Rooms

The guest rooms here are rich in designer detailing and tastefully finished, with classic décor, exquisite fabrics and plenty of mod cons. Each 258-square-foot Superior room is outfitted with plush bedding, a well-stocked minibar and an en-suite bathroom with bathrobes and luxury

Dining

The hotel’s signaturerestaurant, Le Bouchon, presents a creative selection of classic and contemporary Italian and European cuisine. For breakfast, you’ll enjoy plentiful buffet-style spreads, and later in the day, you can explore the hotel’s selection of fine wines over dinner. Room service is also available.

Location

The hotel puts you in the heart of Rome’s Prati district, just 100 yards from the Piazza Cavour and a 10-minute walk from the Vatican Museums. Your first stop should be Vatican City, a tiny city-state presided over by the Pope, where the Sistine Chapel’s frescoes and the dome of St. Peter’s basilica are nothing short of awe-inspiring. For gladiatorial greatness, head to the Colosseum, before continuing on to the Roman Forum, The Pyramid of Cestius and the Pantheon. Also, be sure to relax with a gelato at Piazza Navona, give your credit card a workout in the shopping streets of the Spanish Steps, and toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain to guarantee your return to the Eternal City.

Were on a honeymoon, we stayed here while visiting Rome for the whole weekend. The room we had was very spacious & we like the most that aircon is so strong. We had a good night sleep spescially when its too warm outside. its good to come in to a cold room, the aircon is stil on even we are not at the room, Unlike other hotel the aircon will be off when u remove the card on the card holder. very clean & they have a good food at the restaurant.

Good help from the blower since i forgot my underwears on another bag in Venice. good thing uts working, some hotel has a non working blowers.

This place is disgusting. There is mildew all over the showers, carpet is matted and wallpaper peeling off the walls. It looks like it was done in the 60’s and never updated. Bedding is damp with hard mattresses and lumpy pillows.
The food is as equally disgusting in the morning with undercooked meat and canned fruit. My husband’s “safe choice” of a hard boiled eggs turned out to be a rotten egg that was black inside when he bit into it.
Looks like lots of tour bookings book here which is how we ended up here. My in laws booked on the recommendation of the person who arranged their last religious trip to Rome.

We stayed there for 4 nights very nice hotel. Clean rooms air conditioning worked great. Staff very friendly and always attentive and helpful. Very close to piazza Cavour a 10 minutes walk to piazza navona. There is a good hamburger restaurant opposite the hotel faunzi which is highly recommended.

No air conditioning every night from 12-6 am. They change the lie about it every day. Finally someone told me they shut it off every night for engineering reasons. On our last day there they gave a small fan for the room - wow thanks. The food was horrible!!! The bathroom shower was a dribble of water but nice size. The bidet did not work. The bed was lumpy, pillows were lumpy. Furniture from 1950s and the scratches from 1960s. The TV didn't, phone didn't work half of the time. Half of the outlets didn't work. Room was a nice size. The safe worked. No drawers for clothes. And for all of this we paid $340 a night. CRAPPY PLACE. But the people were nice. I feel sorry for them having to work there. The owner is obviously a cheapskate.

Seriously one of the worst rooms I have ever been in. Filthy carpet that was entirely matted down. Peeling paint over the window. Wallpaper coming off the walls. Sheets that looked dirty. Finally gross stains on the boxsprings. Went down for another room and they instead sent maintenance and a maid. Demanded another room and was given one that appeared to be recently redone. Not great either but a big improvement over 1st room. Look elsewhere!
