Endearing and a Real Find
Reviewed 3 days ago

I think we may re-visit Rome just as an excuse to return to this lovely hotel. Staff could not be more welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was a visual and delicious feast. Penthouse terrace was relaxing and low key charming. Location was perfect (walking distance to most everything including not only major sights but also the less trafficked district of Trastevere). We somehow always felt like we were the most important and singular guests. Best surprise feature was the "Handy", a cellphone device in every guest room that you could take with you anywhere during your stay. The Handy allowed not only free texts and phone, it had a terrific map finder that guided through all the alleyways of Rome. Invaluable! Thank you, Paolo!

Perfect

Like all the previous reviews, I have to thank the Monte Cenci staff especially Paulo and Anastasia for their great hospitality. Everyone at the hotel are friendly and helpful and Paulo has a pulse on everything you can and should do in Roma.

The room, the comfortable bed, the shower, the breakfast, the evening drinks at the roof top bar...all of it is top notch. My only tip for the traveller is to buy water for the room as house cleaning don’t give complimentary everyday (which you can at the supermarket near the hotel, no big deal).

The location is ideal. Close to everything public transport, all the attractions, and restaurants and even a supermarket. Its in a quiet street but within a couple of minutes you can get to anywhere you want.
The hotel gives you a handy phone which is a lifesaver.

My husband and I loved it here and I would recommend it highly.

Thank you everyone at Monte Cenci for making our Roma getaway so memorable.

Hidden Gem

Just home from a Friday to Monday stay with my sister and my daughter and her boyfriend this was a 1st time visit to Rome for myself and my daughter and her boyfriend and a 2nd visit to Rome for my sister. I actually find it hard to put into words just how incredible this hotel was it really is a hidden gem from the outside you would never know what awaits you inside. The rooms are beautiful and the staff are some of the best I've ever come across they seriously can't do enough for you. Dino ( I hope I've spelt that right ) makes the best Aperol spritz I've ever had . Illara makes the best Cappuccino ever the reception staff are helpful and friendly all the staff we came across are helpful and friendly however the nicest man in Italy has to be the manager Paolo this man goes above and beyond the call of duty he is a mind of information regarding everything Roma he pre booked a restaurant for us on our 1st night to allow us to get our bearings and a wonderful meal we had . He highlighted on a map the best places to visit and the best part of that was a route home from the Vatican that he promised would give us spectacular views of the entire city and he wasn't kidding just incredible . The location of the hotel is perfect for most of the major tourist attractions such as Trevi fountain and Spanish steps to name a few. I highly recommend a walk at night along the river some great restaurants and lovely stalls selling anything from leather goods to jewellery. The breakfast at the hotel is excellent and plentiful and best of all you can sit outside on the rooftop terrace to eat it and enjoy the best Cappuccino made by Illena . The rooftop is the place to head to after being out in the evening Dino makes the best Aperol spritz in Rome a
great way to wind down after a long day. The rooms we had were beautiful very
comfortable beds large walk in shower and we had a view of the square just
outside the front door of the hotel . I seriously can't recommend this hotel enough I think you would be hard pushed to find a fault with it or the staff who work tirelessly from morning till night to cater to your every need the staff are an absolute credit to Paulo the manager and he is an absolute asset to the owners he is what makes this beautiful hotel special he has 1st class staff throughout the hotel he goes above and beyond to help out his clientele so much so my sister and I are already planning our return visit to Hotel Monte Cenci thankyou to a wonderful hotel with wonderful staff and a wonderful host Paulo .

Romantic and secluded hotel in the heart of Rome.

This hotel is a hidden gem, the rooms are beautifully decorated and breakfast in the terrace is included, service is wonderful! the owner Paolo is often in the hotel and on one particular night when I was headed out to dinner as a guest of my Italian friends, he had some wine sent to my room to bring to the dinner, the wines were wonderful of course and it saved me a trip to the market.

I look forward to returning soon.

This is a lovely, friendly hotel in a great location--walkable to many of the best sights in Rome. Delicious breakfast on the roof top terrace or in a warm, inviting "breakfast room." I would definitely stay here again!
