After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor I had few illusions about what our stay at the Richmond Hotel would be like and it lived up to those expectations. The location is great, easy walking distance to the Roman Forum and the Colosseum. We found the staff friendly and helpful, especially the young woman who's name I missed but helped us out quite a bit. The breakfast was included and that's about all I can say. The hotel itself seems to be under repair or reconstruction, at least I hope that is the case, with exposed outlets and wiring. The wall to our room looked like the paint was allowed to run down the walls, the toilet leaked around the base, the flush device wanted to fall off the wall, the beds were modern I guess and comfortable enough but not 4 star, one of the halls has strange red lighting so that it felt like a brothel and getting around the hotel was like wandering through a maze. So keep all that in mind when making your reservation.
Worth the money if you are just going to sleep in the room but if you want more I recommend staying elsewhere.
Once again, the staff did seem to make the best of the situation they have there I just wish they had a hotel to go with the service.
