Any visitor expecting a hotel should go elsewhere! The Residence is exactly what it says and is a grand house that has serviced rooms. The first problem is finding the place--a taxi is recommended as it will be difficult for a visitor to find it on foot. I would also recommend ringing the house from the airport to ensure that you are expected--I arrived by taxi to be faced with locked gates and nobody at home--the taxi driver rang mine host who arrived shortly by car.The rooms are spacious and clean. The room has beverage making facilities -I was aware that the breakfast room was not in use but 'sealed' croissants were supplied for breakfast. The room does not have a mini safe which proved inconvenient for safeguarding passports etc. The bathroom was modern but the shower cubicle was very small--there are no baths in any room that I saw. The Residence is quite close to tram no. 8 which runs frequently to the centre of Rome.The fare is 1.5 euros but tickets have to be obtained from a machine on the tram or from tobacconist shops. I did not see an inspector during my 8 days but I am told that the penalties for not having a ticket are high. The Residence suited me very well but it is not a hotel and does not provide a hotel type service.
