“A Lovely Place to Stay!”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

We stayed at this small 11 room hotel twice January 2014. It is located in parts of the third and fifth floors of a large building near Republica. I believe they also have one or two apartments for rent on the fourth floor. There are several other small hotels in that same building. There is a guard in an office watching the door on weekdays. After dark and on weekends, the door to the building is locked and you buzz and identify yourself for the door to be unlocked. There is an elevator. You do have to walk up about five steps from the entrance to the elevator.We found the hotel a delightful, relaxing place to stay. In particular, all of the staff were helpful, friendly and responsive. All areas of the hotel were immaculate. The bed was especially comfortable and our room facing the courtyard was quiet. The room was very nicely decorated and a very good size for a European hotel. Wi-Fi was available throughout the hotel, and the signal was strong. The hotel has a computer that guests can use in the breakfast room. There is very good light in the room. A hot water pot and tea and instant coffee are in each room. We did not use the fridge/minibar.
A large cold breakfast is self-serve. The staff prepare fresh coffee or cappuccino or hot water for tea on request. The breakfast includes juice, fresh fruit, yogurt, meat, cheese, cereal and milk, rolls, sweet pastries, and cookies. I controlled myself and did not eat any cookies for breakfast.We liked the location near the Republica Metro stop. We walked to and from Termini several times. It was an easy ten-minute walk. There is also a taxi stand at Republica, and we used the cabs a few times when it was raining.
The staff brought breakfast to our room before our early morning departure. Although we walked from Termini when we arrived in Rome, we used the limousine service (a minivan) for our departing flight from FCO. Reliable and efficient.
We made our reservations online directly with Residenza Cellini. Communication was easy and clear. Off-season we paid a special rate, with an additional Rick Steves discount and a further discount for paying cash. Because we stayed for a week on our second stay, we were upgraded to the junior suite, a very large room.
I highly recommend Residenza Cellini. It was the perfect place for us.

I've stayed here twice. Once with a group of girlfriends; again with my husband. This bed and breakfast is clean, conveniently located in a safe area and a good value. I would definitely stay here again. The first time I stayed here with a group of friends, the busses and taxis went on strike....in April, 2012....not a problem. It was a 10 min walk, rolling our suitcases to the Termini train station.

Room Tip: Any room is good.

Wanted and found a terrific apartment suite for a family of five. 3 bed rooms 2 baths, dinning room, kitchen and located in the old city central. 20 minutes walk to the Vatican, 15 to Spanish steps. Bakery within one block. Restaurants around every corner. Just s fantastic location.

Apartment has to be asked for special. They have two apartments, one larger than ours. Instruction and travel orientation was great. Clean and well equipped. For this type of accommodations the price was good but not inexpensive.

Our family of four stayed here a few years ago. Our room was huge and the staff was wonderful! The location was safe and walking distance from the train station. We have always talked about going back to Rome and would definitely stay here.

The location was awesome, the staff was wonderful, the room was great, the shower was super, I would stay here again. The wifi in the breakfast room worked great but in our room higher up it did not work as well so the hotel gave us a great bottle of wine to compensate. Very helpful with all our questions, walked all over Rome, did not have a car.

Robert was very helpful in every aspect. Room was clean and spacious. The area was safe enough to walk in night. It may be less flavor in interior design but simple, good to stay. It is walking distance from the terminal. It is also easy to take metro and bus to go to various sites.

Residenza Cellini is a wonderful and elegant retreat to return to after a busy day exploring Rome. This was our third stay over a number of years and we would never consider another property should we return to Rome. I recommended Residenza Cellini to a friend and they were also blown away by the value and charm of this establishment. It is also listed with very high regard in the Rick Steve’s Italy 2013 book.

It is located on the third and fifth floors of a large non descript building housing other businesses and private residences. The main reception behind a securely locked door with someone on duty 24/7 is located on the third floor and a lovely terrace with additional bedrooms on the fifth all of which you get to by elevator or stairs. The street is very quite and just around the corner from Via Nationale, Repubblica and a ten minute walk to the train station. It is a wonderful location with the Metro and bus stops just around the corner plus lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance. We never felt unsafe in this area and frequently were out returning in the late evening.

The interior of Residenza Cellini is like stepping inside a chateau of marble floors and antique furnishings in the public areas and attractively furnished bedrooms (most very large by Euro standards) with hardwood floors and modern ensuite bath tiled in ceramics and marble. We found the beds very comfortable, the linens high standard complete with large fluffy towels AND the rooms are impeccably clean. A kettle is provided and the room stocked with complementary instant coffee and various teas. A reasonably priced mini bar and room safe is also within the room.

I cannot say enough about how professional, friendly and helpful the staff are. The included continental breakfast just adds to the value you receive here. They will arrange car service to pick you at the airport which I would highly recommend as it is only moderately more expensive than you finding your own taxi and then trying to deal with communication (if you do not speak Italian) and directions.
