Cardinal Hotel St Peter
Why We Love This Hotel
- The hotel is in a quiet location outside of the city centre
- It has a rooftop bar with city views
- The restaurant has a terrace for summer al fresco dining
Set in a leafy residential area outside of central Rome, the Cardinal Hotel St Peter offers a quiet base from which to explore the Eternal City. It's within walking distance of the Villa Doria Pamphili park, which is Rome's largest landscaped park and is a popular retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. The hotel is around 2.5 kilometres from the Vatican City and it has views towards the iconic dome of St Peter's Basilica. From nearby Piazza Pio XI, there are bus services to the Vatican Museums and to central Rome.
For views of the city, head up to the roof garden where there's also a bar and three Jacuzzis (open May to September). At ground level there's an outdoor pool area with sunloungers and umbrellas (the pool is open from June to September).
The hotel restaurant has outdoor seating for al fresco dining in summer, and there's a bar and a comfortable lounge where guests can enjoy a wide choice of drinks including cocktails. At breakfast, guests can start the day with a selection of local delicacies and international favourites.
There are 139 rooms and suites at the Cardinal Hotel St Peter, including interconnecting rooms that are popular with families. Some of the higher category rooms have balconies with views of St Peter's.
