... Paris, Je T'aime. Looking back on the trip that open cinema was my favourite moment. I loved sitting with all the locals as the sunset listening to women natter away, I have no idea what they were saying but it felt so good to experience something the locals would.
The other thing I found fascinating was that there are a lot of homeless immigrants in Italy, in Florence you could see them bringing out their cardboard to sleep on at night. In the mornings you could ...
leaving venice today in 34C humid heat, dragging our bags through quaint little cobblestone streets, that,s the easy part. the difficult stuff involves 3 bridges all with many steps, and our bags are quite heavy now. as was my heart leaving this unbelievable city.
so enjoyed strolling around the maze of streets, but onwards to roma we go. train again and it was ...
Koffie, koffie, koffie. Koffie drinken kunnen ze hier in ItaliŽ wel! Ik denk dat ik nog nooit zoveel cafeÔne in mijn lijf heb gehad als deze maand. Zo vertelde ik al eerder dat het in ItaliŽ niet de gewoonte is om thuis te ontbijten, maar naar een bar te gaan en hier al staande een koffie te drinken met bijbehorend een croissantje of iets anders zoets. Dit doen we natuurlijk niet elke dag, maar ...
... I hope you guys enjoy some of the attached photos, which span a wide period of time including one contemporary piece that Cassie and I both loved.
Despite the extreme heat, I seem to have come down with a mini-cold. Stuffy head, sneezing...you know the drill. If the small first aid kit we bought for this trip did not include antihistamine I am not sure how I would have slept through the night. I guess I can only blame fatigue for this. I will try to get more ...

Zoe-- the bored one
Arrived in rome after only 4 hours on a plane. Italy's completely different from melbourne. Most people speak english, even more than in Singapore I think. They have a lot of motorbikes here, some of them with three wheels! ...

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.
