Suite Artis Barberini
Ranked #1,844 of 3,712 Rome B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 April 2013

Stayed hear over the Easter weekend in 2013. Booked on the basis of previous TripAdvisor reviews. In summary, I would not stay here again.

Pros: Location (about 100m from Metro and cab-rank outside) and price.

Cons: Incredibly noisy (both from road noise and those inside the hotel), the beds are appalling (mine had been stuffed with a towel due to its poor state of padding), cleanliness is poor, it was necessary to wipe down the breakfast dishes every morning, inability to get the time of breakfast right (They ask what time you want it delivered and then deliver it about 20 minutes early, everytime). There is a requirement to climb approximately seven flights of stairs to your room. The hotel is not marked outside so is difficult to locate. The shower had no handle so had to be hand-held. There are no facilities for a drink in the hotel or room itself. The TV did not work.

All in all a very disappointing hotel in a very good location. If you want price over quality / amenities then you will be satisfied (just) by this hotel. If you want the basics right, book somewhere else.

We've stayed here for 3 nights and i think this was the best choice. The residence is in the city center, just 3 minutes away from Fontana di Trevi, 5 minutes to Colosseo, Piazza di Spagna and so close to everything else. From our room we had a very nice view to piazza Barberini. It was a pleasure to eat breakfast in bed. The staff is very nice, and it is not so difficult to climb up 3 floors. The only problem is that that area is a little bit noisy, but it's normal if u want to stay in the city center!
I recommend this hotel to everyone who wants to have a 5* journey! :)

We decided to stay in this hotel the last night before flying from Rome due to the convenient location. It is next the Metro station, and at walking distance to main attractions, so location wise, excellent. However.... this is not even worth the price we paid.... The picture they show is not even the right side of the street. We were right in front of it, and were mislead by the picture so ended up going around Piazza Barberini with our bags, not fun. When we finally found the right door with the little sign on the door bell. After we were given access (as if we were visiting friends at an apartment building) we entered and realized there was no elevator, and you must go up 3 floors, in a very hot staircase (this was middle of the summer, and early afternoon). There is no lobby, just a little "desk" in the last stair landing. The clerk was very helpful, he actually met us halfway the staircase to help us with luggage, and booked us a very early taxi for next day to the airport. We we given a key to open to street door, and arrived late at night after walking around. When we entered, the hallway and stair were in total darkness. They did light up when we stept in, but not a fun sight in the middle of Rome at midnight... The room was very small, no central AC. Bathroom, horrific. Tiny! I could hardly fit, and my husband (5'9") didn't even tried... Not worth even the price we paid, although given our last minute decision to stay in Rome instead of the airport, was the lowest we could find in a decent location.

This is a budget hotel but the location is 5*. When we arrived the stairs were a little daunting and to be fair arriving back after walking the streets of Rome the stairs were horrible.
We were upgraded into the apartment which is located on 2 floors and has 2 living rooms and a bedroom and bathroom upstairs. This was gorgeous and a pleasure to be in! The breakfast was okay, typical European breakfast really, however they do need to stop using the plastic bowls as these gave a funny taste to the yogurt! The one major complaint I have is that they would clean the room when you are out but not make the bed or empty the over flowing bin... very strange! The Jacuzzi bath also leaked when the 'spa' function was on, but the cleaners did come and clean up afterwards.
The location of this hotel is pretty amazing, it's 5 minutes from the Spanish Steps, Trevi fountain and the Pentathlon. A metro (underground) station is also located just across the street and leads to all the good sights in Rome, it is also located near some very nice restaurants.
For people who can't afford the 5* price tag and are just really there to see the sights this hotel is the one to choose!

Room Tip: Choose an apartment! They are amazing and are fairly quiet :)

This is not a hotel nor is it a 3 star. I don't understand how it got this rating!

We arrived in the evening. Taxi pulled up and "I told him this is the wrong place" Taxi driver got out looked at door bell and said (AT residence 3rd fl). I Rang the doorbell, door buzzed to let us in.
We were not up the stairwell and lights go out. We were in total darkness
(lights on timers) We finally make it up 65 stairs with luggage. The rooms were old looking and
depressing. There is no lobby or breakfast room. They knock on your door in a.m. with a tray of
coffee and stale danish. It was very noisy, cappucino machine in the a.m. This was a converted apartment into 5 rented rooms. We stayed at 5 hotels during our trip and this place was horrific in comparison to any other hotels.

Room Tip: Don't stay here.

Just returned from the Residence AT where we stayed for four nights whilst in Rome. We went to Rome on a shopping trip so didn't want to pay a great deal for the accommodation preferring to spend the money instead in all the lovely boutiques close by. For what we paid, you can't fault the value.The location is excellent, within walking distance of most of Rome's attractions and with a Metro stop across the street. The rooms are larger than average with a bedroom, kitchen area and bathroom and are cleaned daily to a good standard.The room we were allocated also had sound proof glass so that we could enjoy a good night's sleep despite the heavy traffic right outside. Breakfast was good too. However, here's the negative. Upon returning to our room one afternoon, there was a really strong smell of perfume wafting down the (94) stairs. When we got closer to our room the receptionist was smelling really strongly of it. I thought the scent was familiar and realised we must share the same taste in perfume. Wrong! As soon as I walked into our room I realised it was MY perfume I could smell as it has been sprayed everywhere, the room was overpowered with it! I was more careful after that and had to hide everything when we went out. But the following day when we got back to the room, I noticed that the bag the designer shoes were in that I had treated myself to had been opened and the box was slightly ajar, even though I know it was closed when we left. These "incidents" were confined to the times corresponding to when the same member of staff was on duty and I can honestly say that the other two employees working there were absolutely lovely and very helpful.

This bed & breakfast is fabulously well located. It is a 5 minute walk from the Spanish steps and Pantheon. The room was large with a king size bed and a huge leather couch. Air conditioning was decent and the bathroom larger than most hotels. The shower was old and rather fidley but it was a minor issue. There was a nice balcony looking out over the street. The room was clean and breakfast was limited to a couple of croissants, fruit juice and yogurt. For the price i would highly recommend it. There are 92 steps to climb before you hit the B&B on the fourth floor so definately not for those with poor mobility but if you are relatively fit, its not a problem. Highly recommended for thos looking for a quality place to stay in a great location.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 1. Very nice
