Everything about this hotel is excellent.If I go back to Rome I will definitely stay there again. The room was cleaned every day plus linen and towels changed everyday also.Could not fault breakfast something there for everyone's taste and plenty of everything and as for the staff could not be more pleasant and helpful. Definitely a great hotel!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Cicerone Hotel

Exceptional service

from A TripAdvisor Member
Our group stayed at the Cicerone for just 3 days, and we were very pleased. The location was excellent; you could walk almost anywhere you wanted to go. The rooms were very nice and the breakfast was more than adequate. The staff was always available and helpful during our stay, but it wasn't until after we left that they really impressed me. Not only did they find the film I had lost in my room, but they saved it and helped me get it shipped to the U.S.

Wonderful hotel in a great location!

from TravlBound
I checked into the Hotel Cicerone on May 22nd, and stayed for six nights.

I had read the reviews about the hotel having noise issues, especially on the street side of the hotel. I stayed on the second floor, street side, and, even with the street being under construction, I wasn't bothered by any street noise whatsoever.

Street side rooms get afternoon sun, so, in the high season, it may be quite warm when you get back from your excursions. The AC worked well, though a little distracting when trying to fall asleep because it's on-and-off so frequently, rather than a constant drone. And so you know, the temperature is in Celcius.

The windows in the room open, if you want outside air, but I kept them closed.

The beds were super comfortable, though I'm not used to sleeping in a twin-sized bed. The bathroom had a full tub, and a hand-holdable shower head. Some wake-up calls are automated (and maybe I was tired, but I found it amusing that the background music in the wakeup call was "we are the champions" by Queen), and some were personal.

The room and bathroom were very clean, and the cleaning staff was very efficient. Though I didn't need it this frequently, the soap was fresh every other day.

The hotel staff at the front desk were great for what I asked them about - I traveled with the Globus-Monograms tour company, so I had a tour rep desk in the lobby where I could ask all the touristy "where do I go" kinds of questions. The waitstaff in the breakfast room were great as well - very quick to respond in the few times I ever had to ask for anything (for the most part, what I needed would be on the table already).

The elevators were a little small, but, for the most part, I used the stairs when I went to my room - 2 flights is no big deal to climb (at least for now). I didn't order anything from the bar, but I was told it was quite expensive, as was room service - again, hearsay rather than firsthand knowledge.

I didn't eat at the restaurant in the hotel - Le Bouchon - so I can't comment. However, I had breakfast in the hotel every day. I'm not a fan of how the eggs were done - scrambled, but still watery - and I don't really care for prociutto-type bacon. The pastries and cakes were delicious, though, and I fell in love with the lattes. Oh, and the cornettos - YUM! There were about 6 types of cereal, 2 types of yogurt, and a bunch of yummy cheeses.

The restaurant across the street, Grotta Azzura, was so convenient and the brick oven pizza was great. I'm hardly a wine conoisseur, but the house wine was great.

Shopping around the area was kind of high-end, but it's a lovely walking district. Also, should the need arise, 5 or 6 blocks away is a night pharmacy - I needed it for cream for my sunburn.

Location of the hotel was great for what I wanted to do. I was only about a 20 minute walk from Vatican City, Piazza Navona, and about 15 minutes from Piazza del Popolo. There are two city bus stops across the street from the hotel. There is a line of taxis at the park at the end of Via Cicerone (Piazza Cavour).

All that said, Hotel Cicerone is a beautiful hotel in spite of the road work out front, and it's in a great location if you want to spend any amount of time at the Vatican.

We spent 10 wonderful days in May at this hotel. The beds (2) were very
comfortable, the room was large, shower perfect, air conditioning great and there was NO STREET NOISE. We were a bit worried when we read other reviews about the noise, but we were in room 343, overlooking the courtyard and did not hear any noise AT ALL. The room rate was $204
EURO, about $264 US, but we were totally okay with paying that for a clean and safe place. Location-wise, it's perfect if you plan to see the Vatican --
we took taxi's to just about everything ancient and never paid more than
$10 EURO. Can't wait to go back. P.S. Daniel, the doorman, is a very nice and informative guy --

clean hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
was just at the hotel for three nights. The breakfast was not as good as I thought it would be. The rooms were a good size and clean. The staff at the front desk was just ok. Was not bothered by street noise, they are still doing construction at the site. Very good food across the street with reasonable prices.

a rip-off....

from ChristianB
This hotel is incredibly overpriced. I've stayed in 30 hotels in the past 12 months and despite being the most expensive one, this hotel does not make it into my top 15.

Rooms are small and haven't been restyled since the mid 80's. Bathroom needs upgrade. Internet Connection is 22 euro for 24 hrs. No key cards, instead you have to pick up your key at the front desk every time you want to access your room, very time consuming. Service mostly friendly but inconsistent. Breakfast buffet is terrible even for Italian standards (although the strawberries are nice). 7 euro service charge for every room service order. Poor sound proofing and plenty of street noise outside.

Only consolidation is location which is excellent.

Stay away from this hotel unless you get a very very good deal (like 140 euro).

very elegant hotel with great ambiance

from ItaliaWinnipeg
My husband and I went on the Grand Tour of Italy and Sicily for 21 days and stayed at the Cicerone for our honeymoon. Out of all the hotels that we stayed at on this tour from north to south of this gorgeous country, this was indeed the best one!. As soon as you arrive at the Cicerone you feel as if you are staying at a 1000.00/ night hotel and the staff mostly friendly exept for some of the ladies (little stuck up) as if they are making tons of money and are doctors or something. But most staff are very nice. The rooms are very very clean and have beautiful furniture. The rooms come with a very generous amount of shampoo and soaps ext., be careful though and maybe ask for the room without what looks like a half shower door, this may sound funny and yes it is but these are not your standard shower curtains or doors, they are very strange half doors are everytime me or my hubby were finished our showers there would be a big flood on the floor, no kidding. Avoid this please and ask for a room with regular shower curtains. The breakfast very good and tasty but can someone, somewhere tell all italian chefs at all hotels not just this one that scambled eggs are not fried in OLIVE OIL YAK!! other then this fresh fruit and coffee every morning, also before you poor your milk for the cereal, please check the milk and make sure it is cold ( too many times we found it really warm yak! - all other hotels in italy the same thing. But overall this is the best just a few things to ask for thought, really nice ambience here forsure we will stay here again and we miss Italy so much, we were both born in Italy and would love to return again - book early if concidering this one and if on tour book chose Globus for the best hotels and restuarants and the best tour guides- what fun time of our lives!!!

Stayed Nov. 17-19th Good price /Great location

from A TripAdvisor Member
I don't know what some people are complaining about. Maybe they have much bigger budgets than we did but as long as you are on the upper floors or are lucky enought to get a room facing the courtyard you will be fine. GREAT location - third visit to Rome and we walked EVERWHERE, at all times - all the way to colosseum and back and then some (8 min. walk to Via Corso). As for breakfast - pretty standard anywhere you stay in Europe: scrambled eggs, bacon, fruit, cereal, bread etc. etc. It's the same everywhere and Cicerone was no better or worse. Will definitely stay here next time because no other hotel offers better price/location package. Bathroom was v. large (and clean) but only had a shower as opposed to a shower AND a bathtub. This did not bother us at all but may be important for other guests. Make sure to have a conversation with the concierge - forget his name but his shift starts at 11:00pm and he's a great source of info on best rest's etc. - his recommendations are superb! Have fun in Rome!

A Great Stay!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Cicerone Hotel in October... it was marvelous.. no street noise problems.. the staff was wonderful to us... spoke great English and were always helpful and courteous. I would definately stay there again.. very accessable to all the sites! And this is coming from someone using a wheelchair!!

Hotel Cicerone....No problems

from ellfie
I stayed at Hotel Cicerone in September. Must say I was pleasantly suprised, especially after reading some of the reviews here. My room was nice sized, the air conditioning was welcome, the entire property was very clean and well maintained. I was expecting a small. hot, dark and nosiy room ( the 1st thing I did was look to see if the room faced the did). The room was nice sized, but not as large as US rooms, the lighting was fine, and although I faced the street I was not bothered by any street noise at all, and was on 2nd floor. The buffet breakfast was one of the better I had while in Italy. Location was good, and I would recommend this property to anyone...

Great location, great service

from TheTravelerDC
I spent 2 nights in Cicerone in August 2004 and I was very positively impressed with the hotel. The location is great -- 10 minutes walk to the Vatican and 10 -15 min. to the Spanish Steps, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, etc.. If you don't enjoy walking, just one block from the hotel you can take buses that come every 5 min. and take you downtown from Piazza Cavour.

Staff was very friendly, spoke good English and were always willing to give good advice.

Reading the other reviews I was a little scared about the street noise, but in the end, it's really not that bad. When you have walked in Rome the whole day seeing this marvelous city, you are so tired that the street noise seems music to your ears. Would definitely stay there again.

Top Local Tips for Rome

Sight Seeing... The best tour we did is when we made our way to the Colesseum and joined a tour group at the entrance. We did the same at the Sistene Chapel. We went close by to the entrance and looked out for people wearing microphones or carrying clip boards. We asked if we could join their tour and we saved ourselves loads of time.

Spanish Steps That's it, it's just some steps leading up to a view of nothing magnificent. There's the drinking fountain on the ground level and upscale shopping like Dior, D & G, Cavalli. It was disappointing. There are also lots of aggressive "sellers" selling sunglasses, necklaces, purses, just walking around or their fake goods laid out. What an eyesore. They were everywhere!

English speaking Tour guide in Rome We met Hannah Schneider- The Australian tour guide on a Collosium Tour and she was wonderful.We ended up taking more tours with her and she was great. Highly recommend Hannah.
