“Luxury hotel in Rome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

Great place to stay, the location is close to a metro stop. The receptionroom is in avery classy style, neat and tiedy. The staff is friendly and helpfull. We went to Rome for the six nations game, went tto the stadion for Scotland - Itlay. Later we went to the hotel bar, very elegant, various small rooms with leather armchairs. It is recommended to visit the bar not to late in the evening because its closing time.
All in all a great place stay, I would go back.

We took the bus shuttle from the airport and then picked up a taxi to take us to the hotel which took about an hour in all. On arrival at the hotel we were greeted very nicely and our luggage was taken up to our room which was on the first floor and overlooked the front of the hotel. The room was slightly outdated - the bathroom sadly was in need of refurbishment although everything worked satisfactorily. Our filter coffee machine didn't work but we were soon brought Nescafe instant which suited us well. The second day our TV wouldn' turn on and the mini bar wasn't cold which we reported and this was rectified almost immediately. Nothing was too much trouble although of course these hiccups shouldn't really occur in a 4 star hotel. The breakfast room was very comfortable although in my opinion the hot breakfast offerings should be taken away as for the three mornings we were there the food was always cold - such a shame and waste of food. Mushrooms, fried eggs, fried bread, baked beans, bacon, frankfurters and scrambled eggs were all on offer but it was all cold. Everything else offered was extremely good quality, fresh and tinned fruits, cheeses, hams, yogurts, cakes, jams, biscuits and cereals so you wouldn't go hungry. A very nice touch is the Friday evening cocktail party which my husband and I attended - it is from 18.30 and a very nice harpist was playing which was lovelly and relaxing to listen to after a long afternoon of touring around Rome. There were plenty of canapes on offer and we were offer two glasses of wine each so you don't have to have cocktails. All in all a very nice stay in Rome - very convenient for most of the sights. We did the tour bus with the two day ticket which was an excellent way of getting our bearings. The bed in our room was huge and very comfortable with plenty of extra pillows and blankets if required.

Room Tip: We were in room 105 - we noticed on looking out of our windown that the room next to ours - room 104...

I stayed at this hotel one night before moving over to a much more expensive and prestigious one for business purposes. Moving to what was considered a higher end hotel made me realize what a great bargain La Residenza is!
At La Residenza I stayed in a suite on the 1st floor. It was very spacious with a sitting room that had doors that could be closed going in to the bedroom. Then there was a very small hallway with a closet that led in to the big bathroom. The decor in the room was somewhat outdated but it was clean and comfortable. The one let down was that this room had no out the windows at all, basically looking at a wall.
The staff was great and friendly. For a little more than it would cost to take a taxi, a member of the staff will pick you up from the airport and drive you the almost 30 minutes to the hotel. Our driver carried our luggage and loaded it into the car as well as unloaded it when we got to the hotel and had it sent to our room. He also spoke English well enough to point out some sights along the drive. After such a long flight it was nice not to have to navigate to find a taxi and explain where we wanted to go.
Breakfast every morning is included and, with prices in Rome being so expensive, it's a great thing to take advantage of. They had everything you could want in a breakfast and you could have a typical Italian or American meal. Upon request the breakfast room server will make you a fresh cup of cappicino as well.
The location is also a plus of this hotel as it was right around the corner from the one I stayed at next on Via Venato. It's an easy walk to the Spanish Steps and the Borghese Gardens.
Overall, great stay and was very impressed at the price considering how well it measured up to my next hotel!

Room Tip: I stayed on the first floor and there was virtually no view so I would expect higher up floor to hav...

I have stayed at the Residenza 3 times now, and it remains consistently good. Clean, spacious rooms, bountiful full breakfast buffet each morning, and a front-desk staff that is always willing help with everything from restaurant reservations to taxis.

Also, this hotel is just a few minutes' walk to Piazza di Spagna and Via Veneto. You can even walk to the Vatican from there (about 20 minutes). All around great hotel for the money in a centrally located position in Rome. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to both business and pleasure travelers.

Room Tip: I would choose a room that doesn't overlook Via Emilia, just because it's quieter.

Came to this place with my family. Breakfast is the worst breakfast I have had, considering the price we paid. the staff were very unfriendly and unhelpful, un-professional.The rooms we found to be very cramped and a littje dirty.Its amazing the rates they charge for so little in return.
Be aware, there are better rooms and hotel in Rome I am sure for the same rates.
What a big mistake coming here.

In late November, we and another couple stayed four nights at La Residenza, both in suites with balconies overlooking Via Emilia. On foot, the location's a leisurely 10 minutes to the top of the Spanish steps, 5 minutes to the Trevi Fountain, a block to the upscale Via Veneto area, and, for Americans, a couple blocks from the Embassy. It's about a 15 minute window shopping stroll into the heart of the main tourist and shopping areas. There are a number of overpriced touristy restaurants on Via Veneto, but checking with the friendly staff will get you into some other spots that have a more local ambiance and reasonable price. Don't be paying 16 Euro for spaghetti pomodoro.

Our room ,104, was large and nicely decorated with a large bathroom, especially by European standards, and a small sitting room. The other large suite, 204, didn't have a separate sitting room, but substituted a larger balcony; great during good weather. The "double" bed was huge, larger across than a king size. It appears to be two smaller mattresses pushed together, though there was no gap between the two.

The hotel staff was unfailingly helpful and knowledgeable. We took a cab back to the airport, which was quick especially during the rush hour afternoon. Note that there is a club directly across the street for entertaining men, but thankfully, we heard a rucus only once during the 4 nights. If you are in the more crowded areas of Rome, the noise can be unending at night.

Breakfast was great for Italy. They set out a number of items, including scrambled eggs, sausages and various vegetables that can be warmed up on two "hot plate areas" by the friendly staff when requested. They'll also make fried eggs to order and fresh coffee including espresso or capuccino. I recommend that fresh coffee. Note: be careful when pouring your juice - it can flow more quickly than expected. There's a nice selection of seasonal fruit, cereals, sliced meats and fresh bread.

Our visit was late November, off season, so we paid 180 Euro per night, but I'm sure it's more during the high season periods. Still inexpensive compared to other hotel in the area. La Residenza is for those who want a quiet sedate place to stay away from the Roman crowds after the touring is over for the day. It's still fast and easy to get to the centro by taxi or bus (cheaper) when you're tired of walking.

Room Tip: There are just a few rooms with balconies, well worth it if you want access outside. The back rooms...

We spent four nights here in early November and couldn't have chosen a better hotel. Staff were very helpful, from recommending and making reservations for dinners, giving directions and arranging transport. The room was much larger than expected with a large bathroom. It was in a quiet location (yes there was a lap dancing club opposite but this didn't cause any noise or trouble) within easy walking distance to the main sights. Nothing was too much trouble and we would very happily return again.
