“Boutique art hotel”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed here in July and it is exactly what you need for a city break . The hotel is situated in amongst all the top hotels on the via venetto & only a 5 minute walk to the metro station at barberini or spagna . Right outside is a newspaper stand that sells everything you need & a Roma pass is highly recommended . Travelling around is very simple a taxi back to the hotel from the centre is between 8 & 12 euros depending on the time of day . The breakfast is fairly good just fill out the form , leave it at reception and they serve it to your room at the time you request it quite simple really . The concierge is very helpful with handy tips on getting around and times to go to certain sights & how to avoid the queues . My only 2 complaints (and this is being very picky) is the quality of the bathroom products the hotel should invest a little more attention to detail in them and the quality of the wifi in the rooms it's basically rubbish and does not work but the wifi in the reception area works perfectly so why not upgrade the routers in the rooms but otherwise a perfect little bolt hole in a fantastic and incredible city (watch out for the pick pockets)

Great staff (Daniel in particular), great breakfast, clean and comfortable modern room, best location away from center of tourist crowd, but extremely easy access. This place is a no-brainer unless you are the type looking for royal treatment.

We spent a great long weekend in Rome. The location could not have been better, right in the centre but far enough from the noise. Rooms are comfortable and the staff is super helpful. We left an item behind and they graciously delivered it to a specific location for me! Unforgettable service.

When we arrived at the hotel, I initially thought the taxi driver dropped us off at the wrong location. This is a small boutique hotel that occupies half of a floor in a larger building. Thus, I discovered we were indeed in the right place after seeing Residenza A listed on the building directory. The hotel has a total of 7 rooms and is located on the first floor of the building. If you have a lot of baggage, there is an elevator to take you up from the ground floor. The building is clean and very secure. You need a key to open the main door or you need to be buzzed in. Then you need another key to actually enter the hotel and a third different key to enter your room. There are a total of 6 or 7 floors in the building. Other spaces include dental offices and a wealthy family lives in the entire top floor.

When we arrived, we were greeted by the one of the nicest hotel staff members I have every met. His name was Fabrizio. He went over how to use the keys, wifi, cable TV, and breakfast. He also gave us the map of Rome and sightseeing tips.

We were traveling in a group of 3 and we got the largest room in the hotel. There was a third bed ready and prepared when we checked in. The room was the largest room we stayed in compared to our other hotels in Italy. The hotel is modern and chic. Very clean and safe. The cable TV has a ton of channels and the option of watching movies in English. Since the hotel is small, complimentary breakfast is served directly in your room. You submit your breakfast order to the front desk on the day prior indicating what time you want breakfast and you indicate your food options. The next morning, your breakfast is served promptly and the cappuccino is awesome!

Immediately outside the hotel there are several restaurants and cafes. There is a gelato cafe immediately across the street also. If you like shopping, there are two high-end jewelry stores, several children's clothing stores, and the Versace Collection boutique on the same block. The closest subway station is Barberini and is a 10 min walk. We also went to the Spanish Steps several times, which is a 10-15 min walk.

Overall, the hotel was wonderful. Clean, safe, friendly and helpful staff, and great location. Would stay there again and highly recommended.

Nicely located on the Via Veneto, we could walk everywhere from here. We were in room XS which we joked meant extra small ( others were XL, XXL etc.) but it was large enough for our needs. Clean, comfortable bed,good breakfast with room service. Altogether very nice and the staff were excellent; friendly, very helpful and efficient.

Very well located for the centre of Rome (just a 10 minute walk to the nearest metro stop, and only 20 minutes to the Spanish Steps). The room was beautifully clean and plenty big enough, and the staff were very helpful - they put up with our endless requests to look at their computer for bus timetables (the other reviewers are right - the wi-fi does not work well). The air-con, however, works very well and isn't too noisy which is a blessing, even in March.

Breakfast is continental and served in your room at the time you want, so no faffing with hotel buffet bars. The custard ('crema') croissants are particularly good.

We'd definitely go back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back if there is one - although the top of the Via Veneto is a lot quieter tha...

Having been to Rome 6 times before this trip, I was looking for comfort and location without the high prices and extra charges that sometimes come with larger international hotels. I stayed in room XS and it was perfect for us. King size bed, plenty of storage space and a very comfortable bathroom including bidet. The rate included continental breakfast each morning, delivered to the room.
The hotel is within a building that also houses the Embassy of Uruguay. It has an old-fashioned elevator and the location is right at the birth side of Via Veneto just before one of the entrances to Villa Borghese, with easy access with a 15-20 minute walks to Piazza dei Poppolo through Villa Borghese and to Piazza Tritone with pretty nice places to grab lunch or
Coffee and people-watch.

The staff is limited, but those there are professional, personable, and very knowledge of the area. Frabizio and Antonio were superb representatives of the hotel and the city. Both very welcoming.

Definitely a great find in such a wonderful city.
