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.
Room without a view, but fantastic staff and service
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.
Having stayed in everything from a B&B to famous luxury hotels in numerous countries, I can honestly say that the staff at La Residenza are probably the most genuinely friendly I have ever seen. The breakfast is fantastic by European standards - no croissants and coffee, but the full works, which is helpful if you want to burn off the calories walking around Rome. The location is also excellent, in a nice and quiet part of town, within walking distance to the Trevi fountain; very close to the metro (Barberini) and the Villa Borghese. I would most definitely stay there again, but maybe next time pay more money and get a room with a window!
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.

Hello All! and Buona Pasqua!
Today, as we all know, is Easter. And today myself and a few others woke up at 5 A.M. to leave at 5:30 A.M. for Easter Mass in St. peter's Square in Vatican City. We all walked as zombies because we didn't dare risk drinking coffee because of the lack of toilets and the long time span. Dr. Keely did provide us with a ton of pastries which was fabulous! You see, mass did not start until 10. ...

Joe, our guide, also went over all of the transfer information for everyone, what time they need to be at the hotel lobby on the day of their departure for the ride to the airport. Not everyone purchases the transfer from Cosmos. Including me! It’s so strange to think that this is just the beginning, really, of my adventure in Italy and Spain. It’s only day 15 out of ...
... but also the vast selection of food and its flavours, restaurant choices, and atmosphere. The cafes along the piazzas serve local dishes of handmade pasta and pizza and wash them down with local beer and/or some gelato. The food in Italy is delicious and affordable; however, the selection is not overly plentiful. I actually started to believe that Italy didn’t know what fruit was since I didn’t see any while there.
Another unique place ...
