"Best Breakfast in Europe!"
Perfect location and by far the best breakfast of our trip. Amazing cappuccino, fresh fruit, meat, pastries etc.Great recommendations for eating and touring from staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location to Trevi was our motivation"
I can't say enough about the staff. Speaks good English and accommodating. I had recent knee surgery and was intimidated by the two flight climb ( no elevator) but staff jumped right on it and got our luggage. Breakfast was more than adequate. Espresso and specialty coffee available. I had no illusions about a traditional Rome small hotel. Room was […] small but adequate and bed comfortable with wi-fi available. Besides, so much to see, food to eat and gelato, who was staying in the room. Even with bad knees, was able to walk to Trevi (close by) and Pantheon was reachable plus the neat Piazzas on the way Would I stay again-absolutely. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location in Central Rome"
This hotel is small located up 2 or 3 floors in an old building in central Rome, less than 5 minutes walk from Trevi fountain. Easy walk to anywhere. The hotel has good staff, but do not mistake it for a 5 star glitzy, ritzy place. The rooms are tiny and the bath is even smaller. The bed was comfortable. Since we did not plan to spend much time in the […] room it was fine for us. I would stay there again. The AC worked, important in Rome in August., and the breakfast was simple and not cooked but worked for us. It was very reasonable for Rome. If you need an american style hotel this is not the place for you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel has an excellent staff and breakfast. The room was worn down and very small for 4 people. The bathroom was small but more importantly, shower had slow outlet so you were standing in water even at low pressure. They will need to update and fix broken stuff. But very nice people.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the hotel is centrally located to everything. It is only 1 block from Trevi fountain. THe manager is very nce and helpful. The breakfast in the monring is typical of Europeanbreakfast. The staff is very nice. The rooms ar old and kind of dingy but clean. the bathrooms are small. I would stay here again though becuase you are not there to be in your […] room but instead to be on the streets of Rome. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location !"
The hotel is centrally located . You can walk or take the train, bus or tram to all the major attractions. This is not a luxury hotel. It is a clean place to stay with an excellent staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect Location & Very Cold AC in rooms"
The staff was wonderful. John was very sweet, friendly and helpful as well as Diego. Nothing like walking 5 minutes and being at the Trevi Fountain and walk around all the sites in Rome and then come back to the room for a cool down from the heat and have a blast of cold air refresh you as you open your room door! Metro 1 block away and a grocery store […] litterally a third of a block away. Restaurants everywhere. Beds and pillows pretty comfortable and big room. It might have been difficult to find if we hadn't taken a taxi for convenience from our previous hotel. Also, not staffed overnight - only until 6PM. We loved it!

"Clean, affordable and convenient location."
Wonderful location, super close to main tourist attractions such as trevi fountain, spanish steps. Staff was super helpful, breakfast was great as well with plenty of food to choose from. Room was the perfect size, clean. We were gone most of the day and didnt spend much time at the hotel but the hotel room was perfect for just sleeping and resting […] in the afternoon. There is a grocery store right down the street where we got water and stored it at the hotel as our room had a fridge. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel with a fabulous location"
The individuals working at the hotel were great and gave good advice on the sights to see. Directions to the hotel could be a little better, as the current directions requires a long uphill walk. If you walk a few block farther on the main street and make a right on the street with the tunnel, it basically takes you to the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly, great location, great staff"
Staff and service outstanding. Great location. Very pleasant experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Problematic despite great location and nice people"
We had an OK time at Residenza Ki, but had several frustrations. First of all, the "B+B" designation means that the reception is only open from about 8 AM to 6 PM. This can cause problems for later arrivals, and wasn't made clear enough in advance. Second, our room was not up to the standard of other 3-star Italian places we've stayed. It was dingy […] and cramped, there was a lot of noise in the morning from the breakfast room outside, and the shower in particular was oddly-shaped and uncomfortable to shower in. All that said, the location was great and the staff very friendly and helpful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was great with one exception. You have to let people know that they can check-in by 6 p.m. considering the fact that lots of flights arrive in Rome later that the check-in time. We had hard time getting the key for the hotel and we had to go to a different hotel to get it which happened around 11.30 p.m. Excluding this everything else was […] outstanding!!!!!!!!!!!

"Perfect location, clean and friendly."
This place is great. What makes it really superb is the location. 2 blocks from the Trevi Fountain, 5 blocks from the Spanish Steps, and a 15-20 minute walk to most of the other major sites in Rome, including the Termini train station. The street was clean and the neighborhood safe and friendly. The room was small - as expected - but clean, and the […] staff friendly (specifically Diego). We were up and out early most days and not back until late, so we honestly didn't see the staff very often. The walls are thin, so neighbors making too much noise could be a nuisance. You need to climb a flight of stairs to get to the check-in desk, and as we were on the next floor up, another flight after that. No elevator, so make sure you can lift and carry your luggage. Our room was not ready when we arrived mid-morning, but they were kind enough to hold our suitcases while we strolled around for a few hours. Not sure this is the right place for a family to stay, but a single traveler or couple would find it very cozy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location and service!!"
The location of this hidden gem is fantastic!! It is within walking distance to many sights, restaurants and shops!! The hotel is basic but clean and roomy. The manager was fantastic and was more than helpful with all our questions. The buffet breakfast was a great start to the day!! The only issue we had were the locks on the doors need updating. They […] have a key that needs to wiggled exactly right to get the door opened. We felt in the event of a fire this would cause an issue. All in all I highly recommend this hotel and think any traveler would be happy with their stay here. Enjoy!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

A very nice bed and breakfast. Staff was very friendly and cheerful. Would stay there again. Walking distance to everythingGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fine hotel by European standards."
This hotel is fine by European standards, which is not the plush and overwhelming American need for every convenience. It has no real lobby. You have to use your key a lot to get to different levels of the hotel. Only one set of keys was given, so wwe had to go everywhere together. There is no lift, so we had to climb 4 floors. But it was comfortable, […] clean, quiet and well-maintained. The staff could not have been more accommodating. I would definitely come back there. It has a fine, central location only two blocks from the Trevi fountain and 1/4 mile from Spanish Steps. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"good location, great customer service, poor hotel"
the location of the hotel was great and the customer service was great. But the hotel was not up to par - the first room they put us - well the shower door was missing and they knew it and still gave us the room. The heater didnt work and the noise from the streets kept us up all night. On top of it - the bathroom was leaking water all over the floor. […] then they moved us to a new room the next day - the beds were ok and the bathroom was very small. It didnt seem to clean either. The hotel staff was very friendly but the conditions of the hotel were poor Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The best location for the main attractions"
The Residenza Ki is nice hotel, and the staff is really friendly and helpful. Where the Residenza really shines is it's location, it's perfect. Five minutes from the Spanish steps, Trevi Fountain, and the Metro Station (for the Vatican.) About 15 minutes from the Pantheon and about 25 minutes from the Coliseum.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not clean or maintained"
This hotel was so bad we ended up going to another hotel. The good thing was that the hotel paid for a room at another site.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent Bed & Breakfast Inn, a minor inconvenience was the lack of staff at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pick another hotel"
The hotel is in a nice location- the kebab man across the street is awesome and it is close to Trevi Fountain, but that is where the positive ends. It is a given that the room will be small. The air conditioner did not work, there was mold in the shower, the television didn't work, there was only one small bedside lamp for light, and there was a lot […] of noise. The staff did not seem concerned with any of these issues. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Older but clean hotel in great location"
Somewhat dated brownstone. Front Desk person not always there but was when we arrived and you have keys to unlock front door, main floor and your room. Breakfast was good for this level hotel and the server, Palmira, was very nice. We believe she also cleaned the rooms after breakfast and the rooms were very clean. Bed were a bit worn but comfortable. […] Wifi was free. There was no safe and when we asked we were told it was broken but nothing ever came of it. Shower pressure was good although temperature varied some. Wardrobe was broken and some bulbs were burnt but the air conditioning and TV worked well, especially good in 90+ degree heat. Location is excellent and easy walks to metro, major attractions and restaurants, markets, etc. Would certainly consider staying there again, and as long as you know it is an older hotel would recommend it.

"Friendly Hotel in Great Location"
We stayed in the family room (two adults and two teenage children) during August Pros: Room was clean and the AC was wonderful especially after being in the 95+ degree Rome August heat. We had one queen and two full beds - it was a bit tight but then we weren't there much except to sleep. The location is superb - two blocks from Trevi Fountain, 20 […] min walk to Colosseum and the Pantheon and Piazza Navona nearby. Many good restaurants in the area, and short walk to Metro Station. Grocery store just across the road. Morning breakfast great with a wide selection of items, and the wonderful breakfast hostess also made sure we left fully caffeinated for the days activity and helpful with taxi. Cons: The lobby is only manned during day hours and is unmanned at night though there is a sister hotel down the road (we didn't know this when we checked in and didn't know where the sister hotel was initially). Also some of the rooms had very old locks - these were difficult to operate and left us feeling a bit less secure, though we had no issues whatsoever. Also the door lock was a bit 'quirky" and didn't like that we couldn't get out in a hurry if necessary. Room was said to have a safe, but it did not, so carried more in waist pack. While we had no issues, would have felt better with better door locks and more clarity about sister hotel. That one issue aside we felt this was the perfect location, and a good find in a good area.

The pros of the hotel include the location and the staff. Diego and Palmiera make this a wonderful stay. Nothing is too much trouble for them. There are some minor detractions from the room/building, but this is due to the age of the building. Overall, a wonderful stay and I wouldn't hesitate to return here when staying in Rome.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Partly nice, partly frustrating"
The women working at Residenza Ki were wonderful and helpful (preparing breakfast and cleaning the rooms), the men were useless and did not take care of problems, such as internet access and TV. We had no internet access in our room even thought it was supposed to be included, and we had 3 nights without TV, thereafter just 1 channel. We paid for service […] we did not get. The rooms were very small, no surface to put down things, barely room to walk around the bed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Recommended for Rome"
Staff was really helpful and pleasant. Hotel is almost like an apartment building. Breakfast was just okay, but adequate. The floors could have been a lot cleaner, but otherwise the room was clean. The best part was having a key to the front door and floor door. Very secure and private. Room was spacious by Rome standards and in a good location. Less […] than 5 minute walk to Trevi Fountain. Grocery store across the street for convenience. It was more like staying in a a small apartment than in a hotel. Overall, a very enjoyable place to stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great location, helpful staff"
This hotel is in a great location, situated just within walking distance of all the major attractions in Rome (5 minutes to the Trevi), as well as a Metro stop (less than 5 minutes). The staff is extremely welcoming and helpful. We felt like we were staying with family. We were even offered breakfast and coffee our first day, despite arriving hours […] before check-in time. The manager is super-friendly and is full of excellent recommendations and information. He will even arrange for a taxi service to and from the hotel if you contact him prior to your stay. The breakfast is not huge, but definitely sufficient, and the coffee and cappuccinos are not to be missed. This is not the most luxurious or newest hotel, and because of that, you may experience things like spotty water temperature or a weak wifi signal, but these things are minor compared to the convenience of the location. We would definitely recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Stay. Will try a new hotel next visit."
Our stay was good. Stayed 3rd week of march 2012. After reading several reviews, we booked this hotel and prepared ourselves to a really small room. Upon arrival, our room was VERY small. We could barely put 2 big suitcases around the room and there was barely any space for us to move around. Our bathroom was very small as well. The shower area was […] about 2X2 box. Just enough space to fit yourself in. Overall, we were okay with this, because we only used the room to sleep and shower and leave immediately every morning at 8am! The morning breakfast was okay. They served cappuccinos, espressos and hot tea. They had different types of croissants and 2 types of bread rolls. Sliced Deli ham, and 3 types of cereal were provided. The breakfast was just enough to get you started for the day. Initially we were not too happy with the size of the room, but the location you cannot beat. It is literally 2 minutes from the trevi fountain and 10 minutes from the Spanish steps. The closest Metro Railway Station was 2 minutes away. The Hotel front desk is open only from 9am-6pm and the person at the front desk was very helpful. He gave us tips on where to eat and what all to see. We tried a new restaurant everyday and it was a great experience.I would definitely recommend this hotel to people who just want to use the room to sleep and leave early morning.We were surprised at the amount of people booking this hotel, but its the location, you cannot beat. The location was perfect!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Residenza Ki is a hidden gem in a great location. While it has an unassuming presence (difficult to find, no signs, no main lobby off the street), it features simple and clean rooms, free WiFi access, and very friendly service. They helped us book tickets to the opera, loaned us an umbrella, and provided a really nice breakfast and great cappuccino. […] We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return again.

I have just returned from Rome. The staff is very nice and helping. The location is super, is near to everything 2 blocks away from Trevi Fountain. The breakfasf was also amazing with those croissants with chocolate inside and the cream (omg) and perfect cappuccino. Everything was amazing. I totally recommend Residenza Ki.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was disappointing to say the least. While the service and hotel location were fantastic, the room left much to be desired. The room was very, very small with a very uncomfortable bed. Pretty sure I felt every spring. However, the service and cleanliness of the hotel were good. So it's all a trade off for the location. Next time, I would […] recommend someone stay further from downtown with the hope of nicer accommodations, especially since the subway system is so easy to use. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
To be fair, I can't rate this hotel because I never stayed there even though this hotel confirmed directly with me my booking and a transport from FCO airport to their property. Upon arrival, there was no driver even though I waited for an hour. No one ever answered at the phone numbers provided so that I could understand if there were any issues. I […] ended up arranging for alternate transport. Once arriving at the location, the place was shut down. It was the kindness of the next door restaurant that helped me. By sheer luck, they gave me an alternate hotel about 10 mins away via taxi that they thought the Residenza Ki sometimes would refer other guests to. It turns out that my booking had been transferred but no one ever sent me an email about this, nor was there anyone ever available to answer a phone call with my confusion. Unbelievably frustrating especially after I had received several confirmations about my stay! Terrible! Choose elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Location was great and hotel was ok"
One thing to note, this is more like an apartment then a hotel. There is no elevator and therefore you will have to lug your luggage up many flights of stairs. The hotel room was decent size with 2 individual beds and 1 double bed and provided enough room for the 4 girls traveling together. One HUGE downside was no hair-dryer. This was unfortunate […] for us because ours had a blow-out prior to arriving. There is a free breakfast served each morning which is delicious (mostly pastries, coffee and orange juice); however, it is in the common area of the floor we were on and the walls were thin and therefore we could hear everyone else up and eating. The location was fantastic. It is about a 5 minute walk to the Trevi Fountain with many cute restaurants along the way for dinner. We were able to walk to everything; Trevi Fountain, Pantheaon, Colessium, Spanish Steps, etc. Then we took the train to Vatican City which was extremely easy as well. For the price, this hotel had pretty much everything we needed as we weren't in it for very much of the day. If you are wanting a hotel to sit around and relax in this is probably not it, but if you are wanting to explore the city and have a homebase for a good price, this would be a great hotel for you!

"Worst hotel EVER"
Worst hotel EVER. (And we loved all of our hotels during our Italy trip, and we stayed at mainly 1 and 2 star hotels.) There were a whole bunch of problems with this hotel which add up to the worst hotel stay I've ever had in my life. But in the end, it boils down to this: if something goes wrong past 4pm at the Residenza Ki, YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN. It […] seems like an unnecessary convenience to insist on when you search for a hotel, but most Italian hotels (even the dirt cheap ones) have a 24 hour concierge desk, so why pick one of the few hotels that doesn't? Let me be more specific though. Several minor problems, two major problems. Minor reasons: *Air conditioning doesn't work *No elevator (slightly annoying with luggage) *Beautiful flat-screen TV has no English channels *Strange location, up a very steep street *Arrive past 4pm (when their concierge desk closes) and you'll need to walk 10 minutes with your luggage (mainly uphill) to their sister hotel, Saturnia. They'll give you your key, and then you're told to walk back another 10 minutes to Residenza Ki. Major problems (which were an excellent combo): *Building door lock jams randomly and can only be opened from inside *No 24 hour concierge desk After 4pm, the Residenza Ki concierge desk closes. You can call the desk at their sister hotel, Saturnia, but at night there is no english-speaking desk staff at Saturnia. Even better, when we got an Italian speaker from a local restaurant to translate for us to Saturnia that the Residenza Ki building door was jammed, we were told they couldn't do anything right now!!! While we waited over the next three hours, 4 other couples staying at the Residenza Ki tried to get in with their keys and couldn't. We had our bags locked upstairs in our hotel room, and we had to fly back home the next morning! Luckily one of the couples had a sister in a hotel room, but she wasn't answering her phone because she was taking a shower. We had to go down a dark alley behind the building, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, nice B&B"
We stayed at the Residenza Ki for 7 nights March 28-April 4. We had the triple room just off the reception area. Our room was clean and nice but very small. The bathroom was also clean and again quite small. We enjoyed the breakfast in the morning, simple but more than adequate to get you started for the day. Diego (not sure of spelling) was full of […] helpful sightseeing tips and we ate at all the restaurants he suggested …they were all great!

"Nice basic hotel"
A great budget hotel. The location is excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was nice enough, clean comfortable etc. Good shower, had a fridge and air conditioner, has sky TV but be aware that only the news channels are available in English. WiFi was ok but a bit intermittent. The only negative is that the rooms on the second […] floor all lead off from the breakfast area/room and the doors are quite thin, this means that if a family gets up at 7am for breakfast you can hear their whole conversation! In reality this was not a massive issue because it meant we had to get up and make the most of the day! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

This was a great location neat Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps etc. downside was beds were narrow and cover a bit grubby but bathroom ok. Would not be good for disabled due to lots of stairs.

"Bed and Breakfast lodgings close to Trevi Fountain"
This family run B & B is in a great spot for exploring Rome - really close to most of the sights - and easy to find with a short walk from Barberini Metro Station. We walked most everywhere, but it is close to the metro if walking isn't your thing. Be prepared for stairs - our room was 3 floors up - though they do assist with carry bags up and down. […] The room was large and clean, though it needed some maintenance: air-conditioning was not working and there was a portable unit provided which was effective but noisy and the toilet seat was only half attached. To be fair though it appeared that the 3rd floor was in the process of being renovated and work may not have been complete on our room. Street noise was a problem on Friday / Saturday evenings but other nights were ok. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the breakfast was well provisioned. Internet worked just fine.
