We enjoyed three nights at the Residenza di Ripetta in Rome. Our two rooms were very large and well-appointed.
The location is great, and you're a very short walk to just about everything. The hike back from the southernmost parts of the historical city are a bit long, but not insurmountable. Cabs were easy to come by.
Plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. Just be mindful of those that the hotel recommends and do your own research. We were pleased with their recommendations we followed, but always verify on your own first.
The common areas of the hotel are beautiful. Lots of art, comfy seating, and a pretty courtyard.
The staff was very helpful and friendly. They have excellent maps at reception and are forthcoming with good recommendations for shopping, services, and restaurants.
Breakfast is typical for Italian hotels, with plenty of cured meats and baked goods. They had ample water available on the buffet which was a pleasant surprise. Otherwise, nothing special.
Airconditioning was insufficient, but that seems to be consistent across the board. Our room had a horrible sewer smell coming from some element of the bathroom (we didn't inspect closely enough to figure out which fixture). With no external fan in the bathroom, it was a bit of a swampy mess. That was off-putting. My mindset: "If I can smell it, housekeeping can smell it." Herein lies the missed 5th star.
Overall, an above average stay.
