... we'd either get taken to our bags, or they were telling us we could take our bags on them and end up in Rome! Jumped on and it turned out to be a shuttle to the main airport - so Rome actually does have an international airport! Got into the customs check in area and there were all our lost fellow passengers so we figured we'd got to the right place. Two slightly disorderly rows of passengers were lined up in front of the two customs desks to get ...
... down. Very very picturesque. 3. I'm not sure if I've mentioned this earlier, so forgive me if I have. The smoking is very different over here. It is much more mainstream with a higher class of society taking to puffing on a cigarette as they are walking along or sitting in a restaurant. I appreciate Australia's efforts to bring smoking to where they have. We also get the smell of much more than just tobacco as we wander the streets. I'm sure you get the gist ...
... to believe this was built so many years ago and could hold 70,000 spectators all of which obtained tickets to events without ordering them through Ticketmaster. The planning of how to get people into and out of the Colosseo without confusion through a series of staircases was genius. The Elevator system that brought the animals up from underneath the stage to meet the gladiators was fascinating. And it was brought to our attention that it would have been ...
... It is a bit of a mystery how the Pantheon managed to survive barbarian raids when all the rest of Roman monuments had being shattered. Its turning into a church in 609 has a lot to do with it in later time, but also the structure itself is way ahead of its time. In fact, the exact composition of the material is still unknown and appears to be structurally similar to modern day concrete! Whatever the reasons are, the Pantheon is the only structure of its age and size that ...
... corner in about 10 metres". As usual, the antipasti was huge, but our pasta dishes were excellent. The coffee came with free home-made amaretti, and I was able to try a selection of Grapaps before choosing one. The bill only ran us just over €40 including service, an we tipped on top. From there - back to the hotel to pack at close to midnight. The train back to Ferrara is at 7.55am, the consequence being a sparrow-****-o'clock ...

Historical Traveler Reviews La Residenza Rome
Great location and very helpful staff
We stayed for 5 nights and would definitely stay again. The front desk staff was extremely and geniunely helpful (and always so cheerful) with any type of question whether it was related to tours, restaurants, airport transport, etc. It is within walking distance to The Spanish Steps, Trevi fountain and the Pantheon. The breakfast is much more than "continental" with eggs,bacon and a large array of fresh fruit, breads, cold cuts and cereal. Bathroom was large. My only minor complaint is that the room decor was a bit dark and the room was musty smelling if you kept the window closed. A good value for the money.
As good the second time
Stayed at La Residenza, for the second time, along with 3 other couples and everything was wonderful. The rooms were clean, comfortable and the entire staff was very helpful. The restaurants which were recommended proved to be excellent and were all within comfortable walking distance. I would recommend this hotel to all who are looking for a small hotel close to shopping, sites and transportation.
Stayed in a small single room without a window, which is a first for me, and probably explained the cheap rate that I got for what is a first rate hotel. The lack of a window meant the room was a bit hot even with air conditioning, but it was comfortable, clean and had all the mod cons you'd expect in a four star hotel.
The La Residenza was a great hotel. We stayed there four nights and couldn't have been happier with the choice. The location was good -- close enough to most major attractions and nice to be out of the extremely busy area at night. The breakfast buffet was good. The rooms were somewhat large compared to other European hotels we have stayed in. Overall, we had a great experience, and would gladly stay there again!
Low Cost for a single - fabulous location
Small rooms for the single, but terrific hotel with all the conveniences. ENORMOUS free breakfast - all the protien you will need for the day. Right near Villa Borghese at the top of Piazza di Spagna - take the escolator from Piazza di Spagna to Via Veneto- it runs 24/7.
So easy to get to good shopping! There is a grocery store underground in the escolator tube.
Fascinated by the La Residenza
Ended up at the La Residenza by error and consider it a lucky mistake.
Found the hotel to be most interesting, wonderful room, and exceptional service. The young lady who brought our continental breakfast in the morning was so charming and the propriator could not have been more accomodating. You actually book your room by size-no room numbers, size numbers-charming art, beautiful fabrics etc. We had 4 nights in Rome we had not planned on so the last 6 nights were already arrnged elsewhere, we would have stayed at La Residenza if possible but the other hotel was prepaid. Hope to return.
Nice location, nice hospitality
We stayed for five nights there this summer and found their comfortalbe atomosphere & nice hospitality of all staffs. The location was good too. Although our room had a broken sunshade and a broken knob of toilet, they were fixed instantly on demand. Breakfast was also moderate comparing to other hotels we stayde in Italy. Will recommend this hotel to stay in Rome to our friends and others.
Better than expected
Stayed here for 3 nights in early April. Got the room at the "top" (literally have to take a set of fire stairs to get there!) - but it was a pleasant surprise! Came with a decent terrace all to yourself! The room was average sized and had two double beds which made it quite tight. Furnishings appear to be getting tired. Bathroom in this unit did not have enough lighting and the shower stall was tight. Location is great though - walking distance to all sights and the Metro. Good breakfast served every day. Front desk staff very pleasant and helpful.
