Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We arrived in Rome in the early evening and had a train for Florence the next morning. Very near the train station (although you could get killed trying to cross the street in front of the building.) It was not well signed and we had difficulty finding the entrance that led to the office. Room was clean. No water glasses. Shower looked uninviting. Okay if all you need to do is crash, get up and leave. Not a place to plan a vacation in. Tip: If you’re looking for someplace to eat, we can’t say enough good things about Ristorante Julie’s, on Via Palestro, between Termini and the hotel.

We booked one night in Palma Residence through Venere.com and although the latter company have responded to complaints, they waive any responsibility and have not achieved anything with the operator.

Booking was fine, and although it was not easy to get through the property gates (no response to the call bell from reception) when we managed to walk through as others departed, they did let us into the actual buillding , and checked us in. At reception we were told that breakfast was not provided, but the company web site quite specifically states that 'Italian breakfast' was included. Venere state that unless it is stated on their booking confirmation, then it is not included - pity they do not make that clear as how can a B&B be that if both aspects are not part of the deal?

We were shown our room in another building within the complex, up a somewhat rickety lift. The accomodation was clean and tidy, if a little basic. We washed (everything fine - but see later) and went straight out into the city, returning late evening but having been given no information or instructions other than the use of various keys.

My partner showered but said the water was not very hot, and went to bed exhausted. I tried to do the same, but had no hot water. Having semi showered and removed all shampoo from my hair in very cold water, I retired in the hope that all would be ok again in the morning - I was not going to get dressed again to go to reception as it was some distance away and there was not phone or other method to make contact. Unfortunately, we both woke up cold in the middle of the night but there were no extra blankets or other bedding and the only source was an air conditioner that we had not idea how to work or even if it produced any heat.

On rising we discovered that the water was still unheated, but needing to ctatch a train we did the best we could and knowing that we needed the set of keys to get out of the grounds let ourselves out with the suitcases, but held the gate open so I could return the keys to reception. No response from reception on the intercom at the front door (supposed to be 24hours) so I could neither complain about the water nor give them the keys. I therefore hid them in the door frame and subsequently emailed the company explaining what I had done.

On returning home I contacted Venere and Palma Residences, having checked the web site for all the facts - and noticed a previous feedback about lack of hot water.

Despite about ten emails to Palma they have never responded, although venere did forward an answer that there was no problem with the hot water!

There were a few other unsatisfactory elements of the property which pale into insignificance of the water problem, they are there as advertised, but of little use - such as TV, room safe, free wi-fi etc all of which would be great if they worked and/or had instructions.

Pity as it was so convenient and it was clean/tidy.

This place is only good as a last minute option, and not for more than one night. It looks a lot better on the photos, and in reality it needs a little renovation. The location is the best thing about it, it is very close to Termini station and also in a quite peaceful neighbouhood. The room was clean, but badly organized, the bathroom is shabby, and the TV has no watchable channels for people who are not from Near East or Asia! Not one channel in Italian, not even RAI 1 was available! Breakfast is small, modest Italian at best, with no eating area, so you have to eat in the "garden" beneath the stairs, where we saw a rat. :/ Interenet is accessible only right next to the reception desk. Staff is kind, but the guy that watches the reception at night speaks neither Italian nor English. I wouldn't stay there again, but if absolutely neccessary, it can be handled for one night only.

Only one thing was normal there and it was a location, the rest was just a nightmare, a huge nightmare. I would never suggest this terrible place to anyone. Better to be homeless than to stay at this hotel.
During our stay there the things got even worse reaching an unbelievable level. We will start with the things that the room is missing and what we were lied about in their ad on your page. 1. The room is not heated 2. The bathroom floor is always wet because of the shower and sink drain in which water does not flow. 3. The bathroom does not look like in their ad, it is disgusting and the shower is broken. It does not close its doors, so they tried to improvise using a curtain. 4. The room does not look like in the pictures, it has dirty walls and the walls of the entire hotel are paper thin. 5. The reception service is not open 24 hours, because the receptionist is sleeping all the nights. Finally, the most disturbing if not even dangerous, is the way the receptionist is treating the costumers. He is not only completely unprofessional he is also dangerous by being very aggressive verbally and physically. He started treating us in a totally unprofessional way since the first encounter but the aspect I am going to stop and write about exceed the unprofessional level and are completely not healthy for any human, most of all an employee during his job at his work place. My friend was cursed and threatened by the receptionist on two different occasions. He is a dangerous person that we have had the bad luck of encountering; a person that is in the hotel with the purpose of helping us, the help for which we pay for. First, he had this attitude when my friend tried to film the gate of the hotel entrance with the purpose of demonstrating that he locked us outside the hotel while he was sleeping. He came to him and started screaming and cursing him because he has woke him up from his sleep. The other time was during the checked out, when we gave him back the keys. He started to be very violent verbally and physically threatening us that he is going to beat up my friend and even tried to throw something at us.

We stayed at the Palma Residence for one night on May 24th. We arrived in Rome by train and walked the 3 blocks to the B&B. This was our first B&B experience in Europe and were unsure what exactly to expect. We were extremely pleased.

We had a room with a private bathroom. The entire place was spotless. They provided a map when we checked in and stored our luggage until our room was ready. They took the time to show us how to work the air-conditioner and the TV (although we did not find any channels in English).

Breakfast was a simple European continental breakfast of pastry, juice and coffee, brought right to our room.

The location was extremely handy to the train station, but was not on a busy street. We easily walked to restaurants and other modes of transportation to get to the sites, although once we got to know Rome a bit better we realized that we could have walked to many places from there (particularly for those who like to walk extensively on vacations as we do).

We would happily recommend Palma Residence to anyone travelling to Rome looking for great value for money and a decent location. I hope we can return one day!

Leaving the Termini station I walked pushing some bags several blocks. It was difficult to find the hotel reception. It is hidden at the bottom of a block containing other hotels. We stayed at the annex of the hotel which is in Viale Castro Pretorio. This annex is composed of a set of 2 blocks of a big house. The room was very spacious, including air conditioning, LCD TV and a small kitchen with fridge, table and 2 chairs. The Wifi signal was terrible, as well as the sign of the TIM Italy. Breakfast basic and regimented: 1 croassant, 1 cup of coffee and 1 juice. You get a set of keys that give you access to the front door of the complex, the bloc's door, the door of a large anti-room and the door the suite. We were one day without water in the room. They said it was a problem on the street and after much insistence they provided another guest bathroom so I could take a shower. The other day there was only cold water! In June the heat was very strong in Rome, along the great walks by the attractions makes the shower a issue of survival! The hotel is near the metro station Castro Pretorio and 4 blocks from Termini station. There are also several restaurants and eateries in the area. At night the area is dimly lit and quiet. It seemed dangerous walking.

This was the last stay on my husbands & i's trip through Italy. We stayed @ the Palma Residence 2. The room was clean, the private bathroom was clean with high shower head nice hot water & big clean towels & the air conditioning was nice. Breakfast was at a cafe a couple of blocks away. The hotel gave us vouchers & it was for Coffee, juice & sweet roll, it got ya going for a day of walking around Rome. It was close to the train station with a good variety of restaurants near by.
The only thing i didn't understand was we had to go to a different location ( Palma 1) to check in & then to #2 a few blocks away. number 2 had round the clock desk help so going to number 1 first didn't make since to me. either way it was all good & we had a good stay & fun time in Rome.
We walked everywhere & were glad we did because you see so much more from venturing off the beaten path :) Relax & enjoy yourself , your not at home so things will be different, enjoy :)
We would stay here again..

I have stayed at Palma Residance for 6 nights (12 - 16) in february 2014 with a friend in the residence they have on Via Varese no.5 and it was the worst experience! The information they offer on is a total lie. You have to know the following before you book a room at this hotel :
1. The room is not heated.
2. The bathroom floor is always wet because of the shower and sink drain is not working.
3.The bathroom does not look like in their photos, it is disgusting and the shower in broke it does not close its doors.
4. the rooms have dirty walls and do not look like in the photos.
5. The reception in not open 24 hours , the receptionist is very rood and he is sleeping all the time and doesn't want to be bothered.
6. The internet does not work!
But the most important concern is the attitude of the of the receptionist!!!!!!!! I have made a complain about him and this hotel to the booking site and also directly to their hotels but they dont care, the hotel replied lying and not even apologizing.
This guy that is always at the reception has cursed an threatened me on several time he is a dangerous and sick person and the managers for the hotel do not care about their costumers!!!!!!!!!When the guy found out that i made a complaint he got extremely violent and i was afraid to go in or out! and This guy has ruined my vacation!!!!! He never wants to be bothered and if he does you can expect the worse from him even physical violence!!!! I will continue to complain about this hotel till somebody erases this hotel from the booking sites or at least change their information and fire that crazy receptionist.
In the meantime stay away from this hotel people, I don't want for anybody to have the same experience as me and my friend did!!!!!

First the good stuff:
The Palma Residences location where we stayed (there are three locations) was only 5/10mins walk from the main Termini train station and there was a subway station even closer. There were lots of nice restaurants and snack bars nearby. The room we had was a decent size and very clean with a small fridge and plenty of storage for our clothes, bags etc. The bathroom was very small and had nowhere to store anything but the shower was good pressure and hot and the towels were changed daily. There was a garden area out the front which was nice to sit to relax. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was great value for being right in the city.
Now for the downsides:
The building wasn't very well insulated so it could be quite noisy with other people coming and going into the hotel and also to the other floors in the building. The bathroom was too small and would be difficult to manouvre around for anyone larger than average. The bathroom was internal with no window and the fan didn't always come on either and a few times there was a 'sewer' type smell which wasn't pleasant. When we booked this, the location seemed to be shown as somewhere else but we had the actual location clarified after we booked. It didn't cause us any problems but the website information could have been clearer.
