“Feels like you're living in Rome”
Reviewed 26 June 2012

We really enjoyed Residenza Argentina. The price to location ratio was the best available when we booked. We walked to everything in Rome. All the major sites (Vatican to the Colosseum to the Spanish steps, etc...) were well within a 20 minute walk and the Pantheon and the best night life were seconds away. It's built into what seems like an apartment building, so you get the unique feeling like you going home to your actual Rome apartment. I forgot that I had mentioned we were coming with our 6 month son and they had already set up a portable crib in the room for us, which was nice. The breakfast was nothing special, standard stuff, but good. Things to know that are not really negatives, they are easy to work around, but I can see a picky person getting irritated. The actual entrance to the place is not directly accessible to the street, you have to cross a set of railroad tracks or walk about a half block to the nearest intersection (and potentially you are blocked by a train), which when you have 4 LARGE bags with well over 200 pounds of stuff (baby stuff is heavy) was a bit complicated. The rooms are small, but rooms for a reasonable price throughout Europe are tiny. The guys at the front desk are nice, but not super helpful. Put it this way, they will answer any question you may have, but you'll just get the answer and not much else. By and large their recommendations for restaurants were lacking. The elevator is small and slow, again, the building is probably 300 or more years old. It's fine. I'd say it's an interesting unique, fun experience, and not a negative. Overall, you get what you generally get at any other hotel here, but this place has way more character, an outstanding location, and the price is right.

We stayed for 3 nights at the end of May with our teenage daughter and found this to be an excellent location for sightseeing. While it is more like a bed & breakfast than a hotel, we found it to be a very comfortable and convenient place to stay. We could walk to all the major tourist sites from this location – everything from the coliseum to the Vatican.

Our room had one double & one single bed and both were very comfortable. Both the room and the bathroom were very clean and modern. The bath tub was very high and not easy to step in and out of – not suitable for any one with balance or mobility issues.

The continental breakfast was fresh and the staff very pleasant to deal with. They were helpful in booking us a cab to take us to the airport for an early morning departure. There is free wireless internet service in the common area but we were also able to get reception from our room. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is not easy to locate the hotel because you have to ring to enter into a courtyard and then ring again to be buzzed into the building. We checked out the location before hand on Google maps (street view) so we had an idea of what to look for, but it is not that obvious. We felt that we got good value because it was such a convenient location, the staff were helpful and the room comfortable.

Every hotel I've stayed at, when the word "suite" is used it means at least two rooms, a bedroom and a common area with a foldout couch or something like this. This place took a regular room and crammed two small rollaways and called it a family suite and charged $325. The location is very good, but I thing the website implies a much bigger facility, as opposed to the six rooms on the third floor of a building that took us an hour to find.

This is one of the best locations in Rome for sightseeing -- the 64/40 busses stop here making it an easy trip to the Vatican and the train station, very close walk to the Pantheon and Piazza Navona. The hotel itself was good -- especially b/c the staff was so nice and friendly. The place has a chintzy look to it though. My room was close to the reception and I needed earplugs at night. It's a good place to stay but ask for a quiet room.

This boutique style hotel, is in a brilliant location! You can walk to everything and public transport/taxi rank on your doorstep. The room was well appointed, with tasteful furnishing and very comfortable bed. The staff were friendly, welcoming and very helpful. We travelled on to Sorrento and on our return, they allowed us to leave our luggage at hotel for a few hours while we had a few hours in Rome before catching a late flight home. Highly recommended!

We stayed here for 4 days in eary June 2011. What a find. Right in the middle of everything so that you can walk to where you want to go. The staff were obliging and went out of their way to get us to where we needed to be for tours etc. Food was great, bed was comfortable room very elegant. Would recommend to others.

In the city for a business trip with a little sightseeing, the location of the hotel couldn't have been better. Public Transport (which i didn't need) is right out door, yet the room was really quiet and I slept great. If you arrive by cab have them drop you off on the Corso and walk the maybe 5 meters to the hotel (right in front of the tram stop).
The room (number 5) was a decent size with a big bed, sofa (which could be an additional bed) plus a small desk and chair. The shower could easily fit two as well.
The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was decent (generous by the Italian standard of a cup of coffee). Only downside for a business trip, there is no wlan. The front area has a terminal with free internet available though plus a small section with tour guides in multiple languages.
