"Hotel Alba - Venice"
A lovely spot, a great location. The staff were great and helpful. It would have all 5's but for the luggage lugging through Venice alleyways and then up a flight of stairs. But we knew that going in.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable stay in the heart of Rome"
A good value hotel in a very good location- with easy walks to many major sights. Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Via Corso shops, Villa Borghese are all within 20 minutes walk. Plenty of restaurants and bus and metro stop close by too. The hotel is quite basic, but staff are friendly and breakfast good. We had a family room for four- they used two pull out […] beds which were adequate but not overly comfy. Quite tight in terms of space. TV had satellite for all languages but in practice limited choice for English speaking unless checking Bloomberg share prices is your thing! Its quiet enough given so close to many sights.

"Great Location for getting around"
Hotel room very basic but adequate for need as only used to sleep in and shower. Could do with updating however bedding and towels changed daily so no issue with cleanliness in that area. Good location and easy to get to. If room size we had anything to go by would suggest that not great for a family but there were families staying there. Residenza […] Ki calls itself a hotel but would suggest it is more an apartment block with bedrooms/bathrooms in. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly and central"
This is more of a guesthouse than a hotel, no bar or restaurant and you have to let yourself into the building with a key after six o'clock. But the staff are friendly, the breakfasts are good and the rooms are clean. And the location is excellent, near the Spanish Steps and a Metro station so you can easily get anywhere in Rome.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A great place to stay"
Overall our stay was very pleasant. Residenza Ki is ideally located and the staff is very friendly and extremely helpful... especially Diego, who had our room ready when we arrived early and even carried our luggage for us, since there are several flights of stairs and no elevator. He also offered us good advice, information, and maps, got us skip-the-line […] tickets, provided us with umbrellas on rainy days, and reserved our early morning taxi to the airport. The breakfast was very good, consisting of a wide variety of cereals, fruit, yogurt, cold cuts, cheeses, eggs, croissants, pastries, cakes, juices, various teas and delicious cappuccino. There is a grocery store conveniently located at the corner and many shops and restaurants nearby. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We had trouble finding the hotel as it did not have a sign outside. A little disappointed that the room was really small and the window over looked the internal stair case with a large piece of concrete going through the middle. No tea or coffee making facilities or hair dryer in the room, although we did get a dryer in the end. However, the staff were […] very helpful and the hotel was very central.

"Bathroom horrible, location very good"
Location is great, staff were helpful, but the condition of the hotel is very bad. The shower was just awful, tiles loose on the floor, too small, dirty and very old. I wore shoes in the shower as I didn't want to cut my feet/touch anything in there. I like budget hotels, but I would not recommend staying here unless you know the bathroom has been refurbished. The […] mattress was broken, with huge dents, so if you suffer from a bad back really don't think about staying here. However, the location is really brilliant, you can pretty much walk anywhere from it! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good central hotel."
Hotel was in a good central location, most sights are within walking distance. Hotel staff were very helpful and gave us a map and advice about how to get to the Metro; sights and restaurants. Breakfast is basic but fine. All restaurants appear to be busy and it is best to make a reservation. Metro is easy to use and fairly close to hotel, although […] with a map it is easy enought to get around Rome. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Simple, clean, great location"
We, a family of four, stayed here for one night after returning to Rome from Florence, and flying out the next day. It was a good choice. Only one stop from Roma Termini (main train station), and then a 5 minute walk from Barbareni Station. 5 minute walk from the Trevi Fountain, close to a number of very good restaurants. Our quad room was dated and […] simple but clean. Wireless was reliable. Breakfast was similarly simple - lovely coffee, croissants, boiled eggs, cereal, cold meats and cheeses, and juices and yoghurt. Recommended for a reasonably priced (for Rome) stay, with nothing fancy or over the top. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The location of the hotel was perfect. Literally a 2 minute walk from the Trevi fountain and no more than a 25 minute walk from any of the other important Roman tourist spots. It's a little difficult to find, but get a taxi there and the staff will tell you exactly where you are and what's in what direction. 10 minutes exploration to get your bearings […] and you'll love this place. The staff were great, perfect English, polite and helpful. We were given keys to the B&B, meaning you can come and go as you please. You can leave or arrive at 4am once you have them if that's what you want. The only problem was the free Wifi was down for a day, but that could happen anywhere, and if you're going to spend all day inside, on the internet, you're doing your holiday wrong. The perfect place for a couple or small group of friends to stay. Couldn't recommend it highly enough. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, great staff, tired hotel."
Although the staff were very helpful and friendly, we were very disappointed with our room and general upkeep of the hotel. Our room was very tired and the dado was broken exposing the raw wall. The windows were dirty and the shower cubicle needed a good scrub or even to be changed. Our one wardrobe between four of us had no door. Breakfast was adequate […] but one morning we had to wait to be seated as there was not enough seats to accomodate all the guests. However that said It did not ruin our stay as we were only there to sleep and have breakfast and it was a great location. And as mentioned before the staff were great.

Great hotel in a super location! Our room was very cozy with beautiful decor. Breakfast was simple but nice, and the barista was very friendly and could make any drink you wanted.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good basic hotel, shame there isn't a lift"
Our flight was delayed, I phoned the chap on reception and he very kindly waited over an hour for us to arrive. (as reception is only open until 6pm) Staff extremely attentive. My one and only complaint was that there is no lift, we were staying on the 3rd floor which in these old style hotels is a long way up after a long day pounding the streets […] of rome. Excellent location . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for central Rome."
If you want a boutique hotel and expect to sit in all day don't stay here. if you want a hotel well run, excellent value for money, in the best location and with wonderful and friendly staff then this is the place for you . For the price, for four of us, this was fantastic and the staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough for you. We loved it, a family […] with two kids 12 and 9. we will stay again; still cant belive the value for money! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Other than the very friendly and helpful staff, the best thing about this hotel was the location. It's five mins from the Trevi fountain, 10mins to the Pantheon and 15 mins to the Spanish Steps (in different directions) and five mins to the nearest metro station. There's a Spar just down the road as well and so, so, many restaurants within easy walking […] distance you'd be spoiled for choice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Hotel, Fantastic Location"

"I highly recommend Residenza Ki"
My girlfriend and I stayed at Residenza Ki for 9 nights (Nov17- Nov26, 2012). This place is absolutely amazing and I recommend it to anyone who is planning a brief or long vacation in Rome. It is located within walking distance of absolutely all the "must sees" and "must dos" and not to mention great food of Rome. Staying here made us feel as if we […] were living in the centre of Rome in a typical Rome style building. The rooms are well maintained, the breakfast is great and you have access to many channels (Skytv) on your plasma tv in your room when your relaxing in your room. What also makes this such a great place to stay is the manager and staff. They are absolutely amazing, hardworking and helpful. Not only are they locals who suggest great little places to eat, have coffee and visit, but they also provide you with tips and a very useful map of Rome. An example of how great the staff is: I really wanted to watch a soccer game on tv but in Italy you must subscribe to soccer channels to watch the game. Although you are provided with ample sports channels, soccer channels are not part of the package. Therefore, one of the staff brought her code from her own personal soccer channel subscription so that we could watch the game through the channel's website via her own personal subscription. The manager then allowed us to use his computer in the front desk and we watched the game! They even stayed late just so I could watch the game! The manager/staff far exceed expectations.

Our only complaint about this Hotel was the "late" check-in arrangements. I had read the arrangements for "late" check in but must have missed late meaning after 6pm! We arrived just after 8pm and had to go to another Hotel to get the key! After this however the entire stay was wonderful. The Hotel is quirky, with our room opening straight onto the […] breakfast room but it was comfortable and very clean with everything we needed. I think the shower heads needed replacing but the water was hot so did the job! The staff, when they were there, were friendly and very helpful, particularly the man on reception who explained the metro and the best places to visit. The hotel is closed to a handy Metro station and 10 minutes from the Trevi Fountain and lots of places to eat and drink. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"We couldn't have asked for any more"
Having arrived to a strike at the airport at FCO we were stressed, upset and without a suitcase or any clue what to do. We arrived at Residenza Ki just as Diogo was closing the reception for the night. He was kind, understanding and assured us he would do everything he could to assist us in getting our suitcase back. The room was beautiful and comfortable, […] just what is needed after a long stay walking the streets of Rome. The room was always kept clean and smelt lovely. The authenticity of the building, gorgeous marble staircase, amazing doors and windows was just perfect. We felt we were living the life in Rome in a gorgeous apartment. The bathroom was modern and had everything required including complimentary toiletries The breakfast was lovely, there was a huge amount of choice and the lady serving couldn't have been nicer. She even sent someone to see if we were ok as we slept past breakfast!!! The location of the hotel couldn't have been better. We were just a short walk from the Trevi fountain, close the the Spanish steps and many other amazing sights. There is a main road close by with buses stops, a metro stop is just up the road which can take you to all the major sights. The customer service is the main reason however that we will be returning here again. On numerous occasions Diogo spent a good deal of time helping us source our bag and phone the shuttle company- We were jinxed honestly but Diogo was brilliant for us and we couldn't have asked for more.

"great location and price"
We had a lovely stay here, perfectly placed, only a short walk from the Trevi fountain for a very reasonable price. We only had one minor issue and that was turning up at about 8-8.30pm on a sunday evening and having a 20 minute walk to their sister hotel (Saturnia I think it was called) to collect the keys. It is stated on their website that there […] isn't 24 hour reception and there was a very clear map showing the way to the other hotel, but it was dark, we had a rather big wheeled case and obviously this isn't ideal. I probably could have done a little more research for the reception closing time/name and location of the sister hotel etc, but it would have been easier if we had been informed earlier of this information as we could have gotten our airport transfer minibus to drop us off at the sister hotel instead and would have only had to walk the one way back. Despite this the receptionist at the sister hotel was very helpful and clearly explained a quicker way back. In fact, all the staff we encountered during our stay were very friendly and helpful, especially Palmira, the lady assisting with breakfast, serving hot drinks with a smile and ready to book a taxi etc if needed.

"Excellent small, comfy, central Rome hotel"
If you arrive after 4 pm be prepared to be given directions (pinned to the front door) to a sister hotel (Saturnia) which they claim is 10 minutes away but finding it can (was in my case) add to that.. and if it is dark and wet.. even longer. It took me 55 minutes before I was back. That being said, we loved the hotel. It was centrally located, the […] room was clean and the air conditioning and TV all worked well. Breakfast was cold buffet with great coffee from the friendly lady in charge of it all. Rome became very accessible, given the location. The hotel is next to a small restaurant whose food and drink is excellent - with excellent prices. It also has a head waiter who rivals Basil Faulty in his supposed indifference and rudeness - but just keep smiling at him and he is a softie, really. All in all, a great 9 nights at the hotel.

Fantastic location, great size room but disappointing inside, no shower door, told to leave towels on floor, staff very friendly. Again cannot stress how fantastic the location is, perfect for sites and great restaurants nearby, tour buses stop 3 mins away, 5 mins walk away from Trevi Fountain, 10 mins from Pantheon.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great on a budget and close to all the sights"
This was a great little find for us as we were on a budget and wanted to be close to the city. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, especially towards our one year old son...going out of their way to make sure he enjoyed his time there as well. The room was clean and the area was peaceful and quiet. Only downsides were that there are many flights […] of stairs to navigate the hotel (with no elevator), and the shower was either ice cold or scalding hot. The breakfast was the typical Italian breakfast that you would find in any hotel in the area, no complaints. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

This small hotel is conveniently located, has nice and spacious rooms & good breakfast. The staff is very kind and extremely helpful. We felt truly welcome. Good value for your money!

Very good location for major attractions,very friendly and helpful staff.Room decent size but found bed was awful hard so didnt get great sleep,but some people like a firm mattress. breakfast was ample to start you on your day. metro 5 mins away easy to use. Be warned though we arrived at 11pm and was a note on door that they had no late check in and […] had to go to another hotel to collect keys left us with a map attached to note on door. so after paying 50 euros to get to hotel had to find this other hotel in a city i have never been in wi heavy rucksacks trying to figure out this map says only takes 10 mins on note but thats if you no where your going took us 25 mins to collect keys and same amount of time getting back. So best to turn up earlier but after that excellent break we stayed 3 nights with 2 full days but to see all attractions could have done with another 2 days, but couldnt fault staff very friendly and did apologise for having to go to other hotel to get keys.would reccomend this hotel.

Located extremely well in the centre of Rome, the b&b suited us to the ground. On arrival, the reception was really helpful and pointed out bits of the city as well as places to eat.

"A great small hotel in a great loaction!"
Having read a mixed bag of reviews for this property, I was hesiatant that the hotel may not be at a good standard. I was pleasently suprised! The rooms are basic but have little extras such as toiletries, haridryer & SKY TV. Although the rooms could be cleaner and our room was situated in the breakfast area, I would not hesitate to come back to this […] property in the future. The location is great - 3 minutes from the Trevi Fountain and there is a Spar, pub and lovely local restaurant all within walking distance. Having worked in the hotel industry for many years and experiencing a range of properties from deulux 5* down to local no star B&B's, thie hotel is typical of European small hotels. Overall, a great location and good little hotel! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fab basic hotel, well worth the money, great staff and location."
Hotel has had some bad reviews which are unfair following our experience. Our first time in Rome so had no idea what to expect. The hotel staff were fantastic. The reception was covered between 7.30am and 8.00pm. the hotel does not have a sign but it is next door to a cafe and you can see the number 53 on the wall. When we arrived we were given a street […] map of Rome, dont go anywhere without it - so useful. Our first night, they moved us to their sister hotel as it was closer to the coach stop where we had to be at 7.40am the next day, they even let us into the dining room early for breakfast.They then moved our bags back for us so they were waiting in our room after the trip - great service. As much as the staff are brilliant and the hotel is in a great location it is only a 3 star so expect that, the hotel is clean and for breakfast you get pastries and bread rolls - basic - but lovely coffee, which you had to ask for. We stayed on the 3rd floor - the 2nd floor rooms lead into the dining room. General comments about Rome, do not eat by any of the major attractions and be fooled by the waiters, once they have you in the food is only mediocre. Best food is found in small restaurants off the beaten track. Buy your ticket for the colleseum at the Roman Forum it saves on que times. Pre purchase your shuttle bus ticket, we did it through expedia - saves time and hassle. Metro station not far from hotel and so easy and cheap. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
