"Nice spot outside of central Rome"
I came with a group to stay here for two nights. It is not in the middle of the city. It is about an 11 euro cab ride from Piazza Navona. My room was large and comfortable with a large tub/shower. There is also a roof deck and and outdoor pool. There is a nice bar area, but the bartenders indicated that they could not make cocktails, just wine and beer, even though cocktails were listed on the drink menu. They do provide nice bar snacks. The breakfast buffet caters to groups and is just okay. Go with the hard-boiled eggs, yogurt, and cured meats. We had dinner one night as a group, and it was just okay. We were too tired to seek out a local restaurant as an alternative, but I would suggest that.
"Not a wow experience but good"
We stayed there for 4 days. It was our first visit to Rome. Here's the summary : Plusses: 1. Reasonable prices, 2. Location is 5 mins away from bus stop however it's far from central Rome, 3. Clean rooms, 4. Decent breakfast, Minuses: 1. Not so helpful staff (however we think that's the culture in Rome overall.. They don't do anything to make guests feel special or comfortable), 2. Breakfast buffet same everyday... We chose to stay 4 days and had same buffet everyday,
"Not a 4* resort!"
The Cardinal Hotel StPeter markets itself as a 4 star luxury resort. That is too much credit, maybe it was a 4 star resort in the 80s, but nowadays you can compare it with a Days Inn. The staff has limited english language skills. The rooms are dark en very basic. The breakfast buffet is standard and the quality of the food is average, except for the coffee. The coffee was really terrible. The hotel has a small pool, but it was closed, so we couldn't use it (despite day time temp was 25C). The location was fine. It is a 20 minute walk to the St Peter/Vatican City and appr 45 min to the Colloseum. A busstop is closeby, if you don't want to walk. There are a few restaurants closeby and the area is safe. If you're looking for a room for 1 or 2 nights, this hotel is o.k if you can get a room for €80 or so, don't choose this hotel if you fance luxury!
"Really poor hotel"
Hotel was far away from everything and really old. Room was clean but toilet was really bad, we told couple times that our sink is not working and our toiletseat was broken, they try go fix that but next day we had again the same problem. Breakfast was really small, we didn't like that at all and restaurant staff was really rude (there was only one younger girl who answered for us when we said good morning and thank you, and one younger boy in the bar, so really big thanks for them!!). swimming pool didn't work (that's the reason why we choose this hotel) and the photos from the swimming pool area was totally different than the real view. That is not 4star hotel, not even close so you can find much better hotels and better prices than this one. Really poor hotel and bit good value for the money!!!
"Do NOT stay At the Cardinal Hotel St Peter"
Tripadvisor rates this facility at a four but it must be a four out of ten!!!!! The staff here is NOT very accommodating to ANY of their clients and seemed to care less. They are almost rude especially the main older gentleman at the desk and most of the staff. The only welcoming person was a young gentleman working the front desk. This was our first stop for our tour of Italy and it left me wondering if this is the reception we will receive for the next ten days. To our surprise, the rest of our vacation in Italy was wonderful with warm helpful and accommodating people and wonderful food. We drove to many little villages, drove the Amalfi Coast and just wandered around. This facility is ok but the staff make it uncomfortable. We met a couple on the Amalfi coast and while talking they informed us that they also stayed at the Cardinal and their impression was worse than mine so it led me to think that I was not being too critical. This is NOT a place to stay as it is close to NOTHING so therefore we ate dinner there, which was also disappointing with poor service. Tripadvisor needs to change this rating to two.
