Located on a quiet and picturesque street, the hotel is ideally located for exploring the historical city center, and is also within walking distance of the Forum, the Vatican and Trastevere (we didn't use any transportation the 5 days we were there). The hotel itself is in a small and charming historic building. Rooms are quite spacious by european standards, although the bathroom was a little cramped, particularly the shower. Most rooms overlook the Pallazo Farnese (the French Embassy) across the street, making for a nice view out the large windows. Decor is eclectic and a little outdated, but everything is clean and comfortable. Breakfast is copious with a wide selection -- sort of an unusual mix of things, but good. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and were happy to do things like make dinner reservations for us. They also arranged for our car service to the airport, which comes free with a 4-night stay -- a really nice perk. Those seeing the "4-star" rating and expecting a American-style luxury hotel may be disappointed, but it more than satisfied our needs and expectations and seemed to be a really good value for the area. We will definitely return to this hotel if we find ourselves in Rome again!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Residenza In Farnese stands between Piazza Farnese and Via Giulia in the heart of Rome. The building belonged in times past to the Teutonic Knights Military order of the Blessed Virgin. In the 18th century the palace became property of the Sinibaldi Family who restored the Fagade in its original style giving to more prestige and importance. Today this old monastery houses a cozy hotel of 31 rooms in their original layout and fitted with poor art furniture made in the northern Italian region of Veneto and antique furniture restored by skillful craftsmen who also enhanced the household furnishings and the finely decorated china and glassware. The splendid frescoes that embellish some rooms contribute to create an atmosphere of past times. The passion for art and restoration is accomplished by two ladies Marisella and Carla who run the Residenza in Farnese with particular care offer guests a warm and prestigious welcome. The professional hotel staff will do their best to satisfy all guests requirements with courtesy. La Residenza in Farnese your home in Rome offers a pleasant stay with a friendly homely atmosphere and the charm of an ancient house. ... more less
