“Brilliant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

We were very fortunate to utilize tripadvisor to choose RRC post-cruise. We booked them months in advance and utilized their special available at that time for a 3-night stay. Unlike many hotels RRC is in a mostly residential building occupying the 2 bottom floors on one side of the building. There are only 4 rooms on the bottom floor along with the tiny check-in counter, a foyer, coffee counter and breakfast room. I don't know how many rooms are on the 2nd floor, perhaps 7 or 8 that are accessible by elevator or stairs outside of the bottom floor. we had room #4 that faces the "courtyard" because it is a space where bicycles and mopeds are kept by residents of the building. we experienced no noise. the room has a firm king-sized bed, armoire, long sofa and desk with a small flat panel on the wall over the desk. The ceilings are high and a room key is needed for lights to operate except for the lamp on the desk that is plugged into an outlet on its own circuit (this is important if you are charging something while you are away from the room). The large window opens in two possible methods. there are no screens on the windows so this is something to think about when it is mosquito season. We experienced only a single mosquito and, luckily, it met its demise before it could taste anyone. The bathroom is modern and unlike some rooms in RRC we had a bathtub. I won't go into my distaste for European bathtubs as we all know how the showers get the floors wet. Marble flooring in the bathroom and two translucent windows (that can open) brought in plenty of light. the ceiling bathroom lights are operated by a light switch in the bedroom by the bathroom door while the over sink lights have a switch by the sink. the other three rooms on the first floor face the street. this is not a noisy neighborhood. the hotel staff are all excellent and helpful changing the complimentary ipad to the language of your choice and eliminating info on the ipad when you turn it in (ask for them to do this). they can arrange transport to the airport and the city map RRC provides (perhaps also available at other hotels) is one of the best maps I have seen provided by a hotel. the breakfast does not have anything hot, except coffee or tea, but the spread is wonderful. there are pastries of many varieties, cuts of meat, including prosciutto, as well as cheese and hard-boiled eggs. if you like to walk, you can walk pretty much anywhere from RRC, it is perhaps a 7-8 minute walk to the Barberini metro station, a 15 minute walk to the Trevi Fountain, a 20 minute walk to the top of the Spanish Steps. there is a small supermarket just up Via Lucullo (actually on Via Toscana, 3b) where you can buy bottled water, etc. We all know that during high season staying in any large city will cost you, that being said the other hotels we considered were all higher in cost than RRC. Any drawbacks to RRC? the only thing is can think of is that many people would want to be closer to more of the attractions. if so you have to be prepared to pay for that convenience. we didn't have any problems with walking from or to RRC from anyplace in central Rome. would I stay here again and do I recommend RRC? you bet!

Great little hotel! Very modern, but just a few rooms. Operates like a B&B, rooms are like a nice hotel. Staffed 24 hours, more than regular B&B. Extremely nice and accommodating staff. We had early tix one day for Vatican tour, and they brought us breakfast to room an hour before published breakfast time. Breakfast advertised as "continental," but they had lots of stuff, including delicious whole fresh fruits (apples, kiwis, bananas, even fresh peaches). Location is very quiet, perhaps a bit too far from sights, but Metro only a 5 minute walk away, quick trip to anywhere. Highly recommend! Oh, and they loan you an iPad when you walk in.

We recently spent 4 nights at this wonderful hidden hotel. It is well located just across from the American Embassy and a few blocks from the Borghese Gardens and Via Veneto. The subway is just a short walk away as are several good restaurants. The staff here are super friendly, the breakfasts great and the wi-fi worked in our room. Our room was smaller, but still nice and the bathroom was really great especially the shower. Overall just a nice little hidden wonderful hotel.

Having done an extensive search online prior to booking a hotel, this one ticked all the boxes for what we wanted for our week long stay in Rome. Even prior to our arrival the staff were more than helpful offering a reduced rate for our transfer from the airport to the hotel (and back again) taking the effort out of travelling through Rome with our bags on public transport. From the moment we arrived we were made more than welcome with the personal touch that a small hotel can offer to it's guests. The rooms are spacious (more than enough for 2 adults with suitcases (and a partner with tons of makeup and shoes!!)). The cleanliness was beyond reproach and the complimentary use of an IPad for the duration of our stay was the icing on the cake. The rooms have a minibar, TV with cable, hair dryer, safe and tea/coffee making facilities (there is a little spar up the road where you can buy fresh milk and juice to put in the fridge). The breakfast was nice with a varied selection of pastries, breads, cheese, yoghurts and eggs etc with the opportunity for it to be taken into your room at no extra charge. The staff gladly printed my vouchers for the Vatican museum and booked us a taxi to get there due to time limitations, nothing was too much trouble. The location is a 5 minute walk from the Metro station and 5 minutes the opposite way to the Borghese gardens and villa. All in all a great hotel, friendly service and a place that made you feel relaxed after a hard day of pounding the streets. I would certainly stay again!

We recently stayed her for 5 nights in late Oct/13. The property is located just off the crazy tourist areas, but still very close to walk to everything. There currently are only five rooms. The place is spotless, the staff are pleasant, helpful and wonderful. The rates are good by Rome standards. The rooms are air conditioned, a lift to help with luggage and free Wi-Fi. They even give each room an ipad to use while there, nice touch. The included Breakfast was OK. Great cappuccino but they could have better bread. Our room looked out at the US Embassy, which is directly across the road. What a massive property.
My only warning, especially if you are not an early morning person, is that they have purchased the unit below, to add another five rooms and are under going a complete (gutting to the bare walls) renovation. The hammers and drills started VERY early in the morning. Construction had started about a month earlier than our stay. As I was looking for a "quiet" place, ending our one month trip, I was not happy that I was not informed about the construction.
In fairness, after voicing my feelings, the owner offered to try and find us another hotel at the same rate. As this offer was made several days into our stay (and unpacking) we really didn't want to move. She then offered to provide our transfer to the airport and a small rate reduction, which I felt was fair. My guess is that this construction is still months away from completion, so just be advised. Other than the noise, I would be happy to recommend this property.

Room Tip: The room at the back of the hall, not looking out over the street would definitely quitter.

comment from MR Wilson are correct and we are happy he had good time at our Residenza RomaCentro. Just to clarify the restructioring of the Residenza will finish soon and we plan to close the hotel from December 1st till the reopening scheduled at the beginning of 2014 to respect the desire to have a quite stay in Rome of our guests. In any case thanks for Mr Wilson for his understanding and overall positive comments about his stay in our Residenza RomaCentro.

We spent 3 nights in this hotel and really enjoyed the place. It is located adjacent to the US Embassy and is central to most attractions, many of which are easily walkable in a half hour or less. The hotel is about a 15 euro cab ride (including luggage and a tip) from Tiburtina railway station and is a bit closer to Termini. The Metro (1.5 euros a trip) is a 5 or 6 minute walk. Lots of restaurants in the area and the hotel staff were happy to provide recommendations for ones that were not too expensive. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are a good size by European standards. Nice clean bathrooms and a good continental breakfast. The best part of the hotel is the staff who seem to be all young ladies who all speak good English. They are happy to make reservations and provide advice and directions. There are only about 5 rooms in the hotel and no big sign outside - the taxi drivers though seem to have no problem finding it. Let them know approximately what time you will be arriving since the front desk is not staffed all the time. They arranged a car to the airport for us. It cost 50 Euros compared to about 45 euros for the train to Termini and a cab to the hotel (for 2 people) - the private car was well worth the few extra euros. All in all a great hotel for a very reasonable price.

We spent 4 nights in RRC in October 2013 and it was a really nice stay! A very good bedroom/bathroom as well as good localization and nice breakfast. We did everything on foot! The staff is really helpful, giving a lot of tips (including a map of good restaurants!) and always ready to any request. We really recommend it!
