The nice thing about Hotel Cicerone is that it's nearby to shops and eateries. The room is clean; bathroom needs some updating, but still clean. Water pressure in the shower was strong and great massage therapy. But no place to put shampoo. Shower is rather small for American standards. The room itself was okay, had a balcony (I believe most rooms did) and I had a view of the street and surrounding area. Staff were helpful and friendly! Very short bus ride to the Spanish Steps/Trevi Fountain/shopping streets in Rome from the hotel and the bus stop is conveniently located across the street from the hotel. Just take bus 93 to the last stop (about 10 min. ride). Collapse

No major complaints, but no major compliments either. Adequate room, adequate staff, excellent location. I'm assuming that they do well largely because their location is extremely convenient for tourists. Barely functional WiFi. Was a bit surprised that they have a very unsafe elevator; hopefully that is a temporary thing that they are planning to fix. Collapse

People always make the difference. The people working at Hotel Cicerone were helpful, friendly, and cared for the guests and each other. That said, the room was a bit rough around the edges, needing cosmetic maintenance. Kept clean and comfortable from noise, it would be nicer to control the temperature. So three stars hotel. Four stars people and location. I'd try others for a revisit, but I recommend the Hotel so long as you know what to expect. Collapse

Hotel Cicerone is about average in terms of European hotels. It's a bit tired in terms of decor, some carpets are a bit frayed, and the rooms are serviceable and a decent size, but nothing to write home about. The daily breakfast is adequate, but most days of our seven-night stay, the service staff was inadequate, meaning you often had to clean your own table and track down napkins and silverware. What's above average about the hotel is important, however. The room was spotlessly clean and thorougly cleaned every day. The mattress and pillows were as comfortable as any we've had in Europe. The hotel's location is perfect, about a ten-minute walk to the Vatican and about a fifteen-minute walk across the Tiber to the Piazza del Popolo and from there to all of the highlight of ancient Rome. The hotel is located a couple blocks from the Palace of Justice and many of the businesses in the area seem to be government, law, and finance related. There are few other "tourist" hotels or attractions in the area, so aside from the throngs moving through daily on the way to the Vatican, there really are very few tourists in the area--which is great! The metro is just a couple blocks away, but since every major site in historic Rome is no more than a $10 taxi ride away, my wife and I did that rather than brave the pickpockets on the subway. Since the Hotel Cicerone is not in a tourist area, the nearby restaurants are small, locally owned, and patronized primarily by Italians--although the menues were always available in English and the wait staff aways spoke good English. We found that eating in the little restaurants that were within a block or two of the hotel was one of the major benefits of staying at Hotel Cicerone. The food was uniformly good and modestly priced. We always had an appetizer, main course, and dessert, plus a bottle of wine, and our most expensive meal totaled $84. Let me single out a couple of restaurants within a block or two of the hotel that are especially noteworthy: Ristorante Ambasciata di Capri is on the side of the hotel and it is terrific--a small place frequented by locals (and their dogs) that has great food, especially the pasta carbonara. We ate there twice. RAF, two short blocks from the hotel, has wonderful pizza. While not on the menu, we requested and received a pizza with fresh porccinni mushrooms and buffalo mozzarella--a dream of a pie! Fermento Cucinna e Bistrot, located less than a block up from the hotel entrance, is a bit more "modern" than the other places in the area and a bit more expensive, but the lunch we had there was one of the best of the trip.
