... into them the next day too ( in NZ McDonalds has a McKiwi burger??). We also met some Canadians that weren't very nice, one of every bunch I guess. One of them worked for E&Y so that was her excuse. When we were getting ready to leave the bar a full matching band with uniforms were roaming the streets, so of course we followed them then went home. The next day (Saturday) we walked to the Spanish steps which was all the way across the city so it took most of the ...
... get on a train when ours finally pulled up at 3 AM. I have a whole new respect for homeless people. We found a sleeper car, where the seats literally turned into beds and passed out dead to the world. And dead to train thieves as well. 3 hours later when we woke up to get off the train in Florence, Brooke found that her wallet, phone and camera had all been stolen while we were sleeping. We were in this small room, with the door shut and ...
... 8217;m hearing someone walking above me, tapping on the wall/floor, and today they were pounding. I think they were just in the kitchen, making Sunday dinner, but it was ridiculously loud! Maybe they were gone for the first 2 weeks, or maybe it’s a rental apartment too, and it just now has a tenant.
So tomorrow the plan is to either go to St. Peter’s (if I can get out early) or I might start my 3-day Roma Pass. I need to check the weather ...
... one of the street sellers to share and walked up and around to the Vatican Museum. Although we hardly lined up for more than ten minutes we realised why once we entered. All the people who were at Basilica Di San Pietro had brought all of the extended family to the museum. It was revolting and as it was stifling hot we not enjoying being crammed in so tightly. I hardly took anything in and only glanced at the ...
Departed hotel early at 07:15 for our all day guided tour of biggest and best that Rome has to offer. The early departure enabled us to be at the head of the "VIP" queue which allows selected tour companies quick and easy entry to the top venues. This is one of the big advantages of using a tour company, especially in Rome which has over 10 million visitors per year. Without this tour company advantage you could spend 2-3 hours in each of the queues for each of the major ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Residenza Ave Hotel Rome
We stayed 3 nights at the Residenza Ave Roma. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was VERY friendly and willing to help.
The location was great. It's a short walk to Piazza Navona and Castel Sant Angelo. There are lots of cafes & restaurants in the area, and great street life.
It's a small place (5 rooms), so if you want a grand lobby & 24 hour room service you will need to look elsewhere. If you want a comfortable room in a great location, you have found it.
I don't know what the other people that wrote the other reviews paid or what they where promissed. We booked through Octopus travel and stayed in June for 1 week and we paid £900. We were promissed a 4 star hotel in an old Palazzo. Nothing more far from the truth: it is the basement of a round down average house, no reception, not enough hot water for all the guests, tacky decor and breakfast is crap. I've travelled a lot and been to Rome in another ocassion paying the same in a 4 star hotel and got a lot more for my money: a hot bouffet breakfast for a starter and 24hr reception, room service, etc. While there I talked to some Italian guests in the room next door and they paid far less than us and where told this was a B&B, no wonder they were so happy! for a B&B is fantastic, but for a 4* hotel is a joke. Don't waist your money!
My husband and I stayed at the Residenza Ave Roma for a long weekend in May and it met all the criteria. We wanted to walk to all the attractions and be near the lively areas for eating and drinking out in the evening.
We stayed at the Ave Roma in April and had a very enjoyable experience. Yes, the rooms are a bit small, but very comfortable and clean. Our room did face a very busy street (lots of cars and vespas, very early in the morning), but with the windows closed, it was virtually soundproof. The location was outstanding, we were within walking distance to many attractions, but the best part had to be the wonderful service from Salvo and Concetta. Both treated us like family, Concetta brought coffee out to the street where we were waiting for a tour bus and found a vase for the roses that I gave my fiance (we got engaged while in Rome), without us asking for it.
We would absolutely love to stay there again.
Excellent value for money
I stayed at this hotel in May this year and was suprised to hear someone saying that it was a rip off. After weeks of searching for a decent hotel I stumbled across this on the web and was pleasantly suprised at how cheap it was considering it was a 4*. Yes, it is very small and it is within an office block but the rooms were up to an excellent standard, the hotel in a great location and all for the price you'd pay to stay in 2* larger hotels. Anyway, who wants to sit in their room when there is so much to see within this magnificent city.
The guesthouse is a definate must for those on a budget looking for a little luxury!
Both the last 2 reviews are right in their way, though 'rip-off' is a bit harsh and 'wonderful' is OTT. Finding the place is not easy - the only sign of its existence is a narrow card against the bottom of a row of bell-pushes. It really is the basement corridor of a pretty grim-looking office block. Calling it a 'luxury guest-house' is pushing it. The single window of the rooms on the left of the corridor are at pavement level, with a view through the grill of the lower half of pedestrians, the odd dog and wall-to-wall traffic on the Tiber embankment. Having the window open is not an option. On the right of the corridor, because of the slope of the ground, the rooms are at 1st floor level. The view is a dingy cul-de-sac, but at least you can open the window. The rooms are a good size, neatly but sparcely furnished and spotless. The water re-heats very quickly. Breakfast is ordinary Italian continental. What really makes the place is the delightful young manager, Salvo - charming, welcoming, and going out of his way to be as helpful as possible - though he's only there from 3 o'clock onwards. So if you intend spending any time in the room, this is not for you. But it is just round the corner from the Piazza Navona, within walking distance of the Vatican, and if all you want is a nice, clean pit-stop, it'll do well enough.
Wonderful! Highly recommended
The "terrible" rating does not give this place justice! Yes, the water runs out quickly...take a shower at night or early in the morning and there is not a problem. The staff are superb, friendly, and helpful. The location is excellent! The rooms were nice and clean and good size. Besides the hot water issue we did not have a single problem with this place. I highly recommend it and think that it is a very welcoming place to stay!
We stayed at Ave Roma for 2 days in June. We booked a 4 star Hotel and were expecting a lot more. There was no hot water, because they only have a small boiler and it runs out as soon as a couple of people have a shower. The breakfast was dreadfull, just a croisant and a cold slice of bread. It is not an old palazzo, but a scruffy old building, the hotel is on the ground floor, there are no views and noise. There is air conditioning, but you can't use it because there is only one remote control for the whole hotel and they won't give it to you.
We stayed at this B&B for 4 nights at the end of May and were so pleased with it. Although it is all of 6 guest rooms in a larger building, the location is fabulous (2 minutes from the Piazza Navona) and the room was very nicely appointed. Very clean, nice bathroom, and Salvo is very helpful and friendly. This really is a great place to stay, you can walk to all the sites under 10 minutes from this location. Very comfortable stay.
