    Historical Traveler Reviews La Residenza Rome

    Great location and very helpful staff

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    Great hotel

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    ... wild animals and of course (to the delight of the 55,000 odd crowd) inevitably lose! Generally, games were held for a whole day or even several days in a row. They usually started with comical acts and displays of exotic animals and ended with fights to the death between animals and gladiators or between gladiators. These fighters were usually slaves, prisoners of war or condemned criminals. Sometimes free Romans and even emperors took part in the action. ...

This led us to realize that we did not see any other individual wearing shorts. It was like low 20's out! That's a summer day in Nanaimo! Needless to say we changed back into pants when we got to the hostel. With the weird series of plane meals we ate throughout the day we had found we weren't ...

Once we said our good byes we continued our sightseeing, visiting the Pantheon 'Temple of the Gods' built in 118 AD. Our last stop before we retired back to Skippy was the Piazza Navona a beautiful area with fountains and sculptures surrounded by cafe's. ...

    On Monday we started our day with breakfast in the hotel. Coffee was VERY strong and definitely not for the faint of heart, and I didn't want to put my pacemaker to the test, so I just had a very small cup, which would become my routine for the next 3 weeks or so. Breakfast was a great buffet of eggs, bacon and fresh fruit, but the best part of all was a wonderful Italian delicacy we'd learn was called a cornetto, or an Italian version of ...

    ... the bags up and down ramps until we got to the airport and the first security check (there are two in Turkish airports - one when you enter the airport and another before you go to gates). Someone had boarded the train at one stop selling simit so we managed to have some for breakfast.

    We must have all been very tired as Thomas was asleep before the plane left the runway and the rest of us not much after. It was about an hour to Istanbul and then we had 1 ...
