It was the second time for me at the hotel Cecil. The first time was 5 years ago. I wanted to come back there because the quality/price/location rate is very good! The staff is helpful and the rooms are very cosy for the low price. The hotel is situated next to the Piazza di Spagna (2min walk). For a small budget it's the ideal hotel!

From the minute we walked through the front doors we felt welcomed. Salvatore was particularly helpful and his customer service was first class. We only had single rooms, but I was very surprised at the spaciousness and state of decoration. If I visited Rome again I would definately return to this hotel and will also recommend it.

A friendly hotel. Very well located. Helpful staff. Public area looks good but fails to meet potential. The bar did not function particularly effectively and sold a variety of out of date beers and sift drinks. This should be a money spinner for the hotel as it is a nice place to meet before heading out. Breakfast was very generous if you like cakes and very sweet things. The coffee was truly terrible. However the staff were very helpful and made cappacino to order. The rooms were slightly dated but spacious. Some bathrooms were in need of revamping. This all sounds bad but actually for a centrally appointed hotel it was ok. A lick of paint here and there, a few new furnishings and it could be a gem.

Our stay at the Hotel Cecil was excellent. We arrived at Rome airport at 7 am (From Los Angeles). Hotel arranged driver, prompt and polite. We arrived early at hotel, hotel stored our large suitcases, we immediately walked to sites. Quite, clean room, Facing court yard, renovated newer bathroom. Nice breakfasts, great location, for walking thru Rome. Same driver drove us to port city for our cruise terminal on our departure day.

A friend recommended this hotel after visiting it in March, 2012. Her biggest selling points on it were location and the staff. She was absolutely right! The staff was FANTASTIC! Before we even arrived, Adele was able to help us secure transportation from the airport to the hotel that was waiting for us as soon as we exited the customs area. The front desk quickly checked us in and were able to provide us all the information about the area and the city in general that we could possibly hope for. They were even able to secure us transportation to the nearby port to meet the rest of our touring group. The staff made the beginning of our 2 week trip as easy and enjoyable as we could have hoped for. We would definitely recommmend this hotel to others!

Rome is a very expensive city and the Hotel Cecil provided good value for the price we paid. The hotel is well situated, close to the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain, and within walking distance of the main Roman sites. It's a longer, though very interesting, walk to St Peter's and the Vatican, but it's also easy enough to reach these by bus or metro. The hotel is very well presented, with a large and well-decorated reception area. The reception staff were very well presented and professional. We were offered the choice of two rooms, both of which were spacious, and chose the one at the back of the hotel, overlooking a small courtyard. Although the hotel is not situated on a main road, having a room at the back was very quiet. The room and bathroom were well equipped. The breakfast was good. Our only negative comment was the cleanliness of the stairs: perhaps guests are expected always to use the lift! However, this is only a minor point: we would certainly use this hotel again.

Hotel Cecil is a nice, friendly place within walking distance to many of Rome’s top attractions. A place to enjoy with an extremely helpful staff. A hotel easy to recommend. Amasingly quiet beeing in the city center close to the communications. And there is even a little roof garden to enjoy the city view and a refreshment. No wonder the great poet Henrik Ibsen found his inspiration in this building.

The hotel has an excellent location near to the city center. The room where very quiet. We stayed at room 410 for four nights.The bed was terrible noicy, evry move caused a squeec. There was no proper chair to sit in, and the shower was hardly usable. ( too hot or too cold) The quality of the beakfast was poor, with no real fresh bread and lack of ham or salamie. There was two types of melted chees,sweet croisants, sweet jam and honey. No fresh fruit was offered. However we could enjoy a cold, boiled egg. For the price one pay in hotel Cecil, I would expect everything to be at least ok.

Very nice and professional welcome, and real good indications for the visit, restaurants and the town (very good private cab service to the airport) Rooms are not at all like the pictures on internet. The rooms are dark and the curtains very old and not maintained. The terrace is only open between 8:00 and 20:00 and there is a very basic service to it (no breakfast except if you bring it yourself) and it is a pity because the view is really nice.

This hotel is very well placed..only 5 mins walk to Spanish Steps, and a comfortable 15 mins walk to the Pantheon and Piazza Navona. The accommodation itself leaves much to be desired. The rooms, whilst spacious, are bare and tatty. The bathroom needed a more thorough clean before our arrival. Whilst not expecting luxury for the money we paid in the middle of June, I really thought this place lacked value. I would not recommend to fellow travelers.

First room was disgusting, but the staff provided another room in another building. Tis was OK but not very clean (don't even think about looking under the bed). Something was growing on the shower curtain. Room was made once in four days and then we were not supplied with sufficient new towels. The breakfast was undelicious - bread or croissants in plastic - not fresh, with best-before-date two months ahead.

really impressed with location and the efficiency of the lady at the front desk. She obviously runs a tight ship but it pays off as the level of professionalism among the staff was excellent. They could not do enough for you.The rooms were clean and more than adequate for the location being in the middle of rome! Very quiet. Shower was even ok which is unusual when travelling!

It is a great location at an affordable price (in Rome in that area). The staff was cordial and helpful in obtaining taxis for us and giving us directions. My only suggestion is that the Hotel Cecil manager see that the lovely patio on top of the hotel is cleaned a little better. That would be the only advice that I have.

The hotel is conveniently located and has a relatively nice rooftop terrace.
