Residenza di Ripetta
Ranked #363 of 1,271 Hotels in Rome
Reviewed 22 May 2014

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.

Cons:
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.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are lofts. This can be novel, or a huge pain in the you-know-what. Ask for the l...

Stayed 3 nights here, was upgraded to 2 story suite with kitchenette, this lacked all items, no tea / coffee making facilities in room. . Very narrow stairway to top level, difficult to climb with suitcase. Air conditioning not working, cool time of the year thankfully or it would have been very hot, heat rises to sleeping area and cannot escape as air cond extraction vent in bathroom not working. Different bathroom items not replaced each day. Comfortable room and good service otherwise, very helpful staff, excellent breakfast. Close to selection of restuarants, ATM and other services.

Room Tip: Make sure air cond is working, no point in having kitchenette if not equipped.

Husband and I stayed two nights here. Air conditioning didn't work (front desk told us they were waiting for the city to turn it on, or something like that) so we opened our windows leading out to courtyard. Unfortunately there was a HUGE private party (200 ppl) going on that evening with lots of LOUD music, lasting until shortly after midnight. It was pretty miserable.
Rooms are large and, while we were told they were recently remodeled, it felt very dusty (sat on the couch and tons of dust flew into the air).

Front desk staff friendly.

First off if you want a centralized location this is a good place. Located near Plaza de popolo we were able to walk to the Vatican 1.1 miles away, Colliseum 1.2 miles away and plenty to see in between.

The hotel is modern and the staff accommodating. Our room was a surprising 2 floor room with a spiral staircase leading up to the bedroom. While it seemed nice in the beginning we never utilized the downstairs couch/kitchen area. The bedroom area was small and it was tough to drag the suitcases up the staircase. The bathroom was pretty small but fine.

The wifi didn't work, at all, the entire time. They did have a decent free breakfast for guests which had all the essentials.

Overall I would stay here for the location though I didn't love the room.

We stayed in this hotel for 7 nights in May 2014. Several nights there was a party in the central courtyard where loud music was played till 11 o'clock. The music was so loud we had to stay with our windows closed and despite the double glass the noise was unbearable. Even after 11 we could not open our windows because of the cigarette smoke of the many visitors below. Despite the friendly personnel of the hotel, the good restaurant, the fine location of the hotel, I would not recommend this hotel for people who want to rest at evenings.

Room Tip: Parties cause unbearable noise

I spent five nights at the Residenza di Ripetta while in Rome on business and very much enjoyed the accommodations.

As others have noted, the hotel's location is excellent, just a few minutes south of the Piazza del Popolo. There are always taxis at the Piazza, and the Flaminio Metro stop is just another minute or two away. If you haven't used the Metro in Rome, take my word - it's fast, safe and easy.

There is "okay" shopping in the immediate vicinity of the Residenza di Ripetta, and the dining choices nearby are very good - I enjoyed excellent meals at Antica Osteria Brunetti, Buccone, and Buca di Ripetta.

The public rooms of the hotel are beautiful, and I spent a pleasant 15 minutes one morning strolling around and looking at the art.

My room, 206, was perhaps the quietest room I've ever enjoyed in Rome. With a window open I could hear music coming from the courtyard bar, but with it closed the room was pretty much silent.

The bathroom was larger than most I've experienced in Rome; the room had plenty of closet space, the TV has four channels in English, and breakfast each day featured a good variety of European staples (pastries, muesli, cold meats and cheeses) in addition to hot foods more geared toward American palates (scrambled and hardboiled eggs, bacon and sausage).

From the bell hop and the bar and breakfast room attendants to the front desk, the staff was uniformly pleasant and helpful. A special mention of Francesca on the front desk who was particularly professional and efficient.

I've stayed at four different Rome hotels on business trips over the past two years - the Residenza di Ripetta was my favorite, and I would not hesitate to stay here again. Bravi a tutti per una visita piacevole.
