"Nice place to stay close to the vatican"
Clean, nice breakfast, very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Aurelia Residence Thanks a lot for your message, short but very deep, in few words you were able to summerize our philosofy and our services. Thanks a lot, Kindest regards,
My family absolutely loved staying at Aurelia Residence! Julia and Simone were awesome help! They answered any question, helped set up tours, and made us fell at hkme. The rooms are large, it's very clean, and has a wonderful breakfast! The only negative thing I can think of is the rooms are not sound proof at all. You can hear doors open and shut all […] day and traffic outside, but at night it did not bother me at all, so it wasn't bad enough I would not recommend staying there.

"Awesome staff, great stay, but with some caveats"
THE GOOD: - The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Very good English. Went out of their way to show us how to get around, where to buy food, where to eat, etc. - Breakfast on the rooftop terrace was good. Plenty of choices. - Location in terms of proximity to the Vatican was great -- about a 5 minute walk. - Apartment was very big and very clean. […] Stove, fridge, dishwasher. - Grounds are pretty and well-maintained. - Complex felt safe (locked gate + locked outer doors + apartment locks.) THE CAVEATS: - Apartment was clean, but carpets & wallpaper showed its age. - It's about 20 feet from the train tracks. Luckily we read about the train in advance, so we brought earplugs and weren't really bothered by it. - The bells from St. Peters ring early in the morning, and throughout the day. Again, earplugs helped at lot. - The bathroom was brand new, but the shower was very small. I'm 5'8" and 175 lbs, and it was tiny even for me. - The neighborhood is not great. Fine to walk during the day, but kinda sketchy at night. We didn't feel comfortable walking with kids after dark. - There is a laundry in the basement, but it's one tiny washing machine that has a 3-hour cycle, and there's no dryer. Overall, I'd recommend Aurelia Residence. None of the caveats are deal-breakers, just things you should consider before booking. If you know what to expect, it's a great place to stay.

"Close to Vatican"
Location makes parking a challenge - if you use public transport this is a n average place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the Vatican but well away from the crowds"
I very good apartment hotel well appointed, close to shops and restaurants etc..Easy walk to St Peters Square and close to public transport. Ideal for an extended stay in Rome. Included Breakfast was basic but good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, fantastic service"
Booked in last minute to the Aurelia Residence for 4 nights and had a fantastic stay. Although it's technically a hotel, the "rooms" are all self catered apartments which allow for a degree of independence and comfort that is difficult to find in such a central location. The apartment was really spacious, with a lovely balcony, large sitting room and […] comfortable bedrooms. Worth noting that because they apartments you get a lot more space than you do in typical Rome hotels. The hotel is a very short walk to the vatican, with a great local restaurant 5 minutes down the road for the evenings. Also right on the 46 and 64 bus routes that take you straight into the heart of the city (good route for the Pantheon, Capitale hill etc) which makes it very convenient for getting around. The staff were really friendly and very helpful, and keen to help you get orientated when you're ready to head out exploring. A great friendly place to stay, particularly if this is your first time in Rome! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Bra beliggenhet og god service"
Alt I alt veldig bra for denne prisen. Frokosten kunne vaert litt mer innholdsrik.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"hervorragendes und preiswertes Hotel"
Das Hotel zeichnet sich durch eine excellente Lage in unmittelbarer Nähe zum Petersdom aus. Das Frühstück war super mit frischem Obst. Das Personal war äußerst zuvorkommend, freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Räumlichkeiten sind sehr großzügig. Insbesondere auch für Familienurlaub sehr geeignet. Alle Attraktionen sind zu Fuß erreichbar. Die in anderen […] Bewertungen angeklungenen "Nachteile" gibt es in der Realität nicht oder sind maßlos übertrieben. Wir - zwei Erwachsene mit zwei Kindern - haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt und wurden sehr zuvorkommend bedient. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Aurelia Residence is a set of appartments with beautiful furnitures and "home like " place. The location is very near to st.Peter square and the service is very good except that the reception closes at 7:00 p.m. Must try Raphael's special chocolate coffee!
"Vatican Experience - better than hotel"
10/21/14 BrandiHuntPhx Phoenix, Arizona
Aurelia residence was perfect for my me and my husband! We walked literally everywhere from the Vatican (10 minutes) to the Coluseum (45 minutes). The staff were extremely helpful when FCO lost ouR luggage, and their referrals to restaurants and shopping were right on. The residence itself was spacious, clean and upgraded. We enjoyed going to a local grocery, butcher and ennoteca to buy from locals to enjoy a wine and cheese plate on our balcony (which had a great view of the Vatican Dome). Overall... I would absolutely recommend the Aurelia for anyone wanting a non-hotel experience.
"large clean apartment in Vatican city"
10/13/14 kathy h Irvine, California
we stayed 5 nights and found Rome sites very accessible using buses and cabs. Staff very helpful..Simon very nice; Gennaro manages the daily breakfast buffet and he is most helpful! He is available to drive guests to destinations with advance notice. The showers are very small but clean ...all restaurant recommendations were good!
"Welcoming, friendly, walk to buses"
10/06/14 Meg S Toronto, Canada
We stayed here for 6 days and the hotel and neighbourhood came to feel like home. Loved it. There are four buildings in this quiet complex; 2 for local residents and 2 for tourists. We chose this for the location, away from the hustle of pure tourist areas in the Centro Storico.The location is walking distance to Vatican City, 5 - 10 minutes walk to buses, but a good 20 - 30 minutes walk to Metro subway. Buses are frequent and run to Plaza Venezia, which is close to all the major attractions. The staff were super friendly and helpful, directing us to local restaurants - both which ones to go to and which ones to avoid! The breakfast buffet on the rooftop terrace is fresh and plentiful, with enough to keep you going for both breakfast and lunch. Fresh fruit, yoghurt, granola, boiled eggs, sandwiches, pastries, and all the cappuccino you want. Rooms are large and clean. Free wifi. Yes the showers are small. Highly recommended - and it helps if you're good with walking!
"Walking distance to Vatican"
09/03/14 RVRazon Fair Lawn, NJ
Very convenient and short walk to the Vatican. The room we got was really clean and you get your own key if you need to go for a walk or dine out. The only negative is the size of the shower. I think it is about 2x3 and not enough elbow room to move. So if you are 6ft tall and weighs more than 200lbs, good luck. Overall, I would recommend but I would probably find out if there are any bigger size shower.
"Great hotel alternative for large group"
09/03/14 keebj86 Urbana, Illinois
We had 7 adults and 2 infants for our 5 day visit to Rome and this was a much more cost effective way to stay than multiple hotel rooms. We ended up getting two, 2 bedroom apartments for our group. We arranged transportation through the hotel to and from the airport, which was very convenient. Be aware the hotel is just booking through a third party. You must pay separate, cash only. The complex is apartment building. It appears two of the multi-building complex are turned into short term hotels. The rest I assume is residential. The neighborhood is very residential, but is a short walk to anywhere you need to go. There are a few bus stops within 3-5 minutes walk, restaurants and markets are 5-10 minute walk, metro stop 20 minute walk, Vatican Museum is about 30 minute walk. Plan on buying a public transportation pass. The bus system is much better than the metros. The hotel is also close to a train station, which we used to go on a beach day trip. Our rooms were clean, comfortable and well appointed. Our bathroom looked very recently remodeled. The beds were comfortable. Watch your room choice closely to be sure your bedrooms have correct sized beds. The number of adults rooms sleep include day bed style couches and trundle beds. The breakfast was very good. The staff were always polite and we really enjoyed eating outside on the terrace overlooking St. Peter's Basilica Dome. Be aware this is not a typical hotel, staffed 24 hours. They keep more business hours, with limited hours on Sundays and no room cleaning that day.
"Feels like home"
09/02/14 Karimkh Dubai, United Arab Emirates
We stayed 2 night while waiting for our cruise to depart. Before arriving we were already warmly taken care of to organize airport pick up. The check in was as fast as one can imagine: we were immidatly taken in our appartment. Very cosy, very warm and welcoming. We felt quickly like at home and the kids were actually calling it home! The location is simply excellent and in reach of the city of Rome. We had a very clear briefing from Rafaele, very clear and helpful. This will now be our Rome touch down point.
"Home from home"
08/25/14 Gabriel S
We just came home from our family holiday to Rome. the hotel offered us everything we needed as a family of 6. The apartment was clean functional and very welcoming. The breakfast was fresh and inviting and with Gennaro as our waiter ,we wanted for nothing. Wonderful friendly service . Raffaello made our holiday ..without his help and input we would have been lost..if we ever go back to Rome I wouldn't think twice about returning ...it really was home from home with so much more ..Thank you for a fantastic holiday
"Nice charming residence"
08/13/14 Kate P Moscow, Russia
Very nice residence with beautiful furniture and true italian style. A little bit old but everything in Rome is a little bit old :) Staff was super friendly and polite and we could always print our train tickets at the reception. Breakfast is ok.The residence is a little bit far from metro stations but you actually don't need it cause you can always walk, and it makes it magical to come back home each day through Vatican.
08/05/14 Gene S
This is a great little hotel/apartment type home whilst in Rome. The room was very spacious. clean and with excellent facilities. Breakfast was good, with plenty to get you on your way to explore Rome. A little out of the way, but within walking distance to Vatican. Taxis readily available and not that expensive to centre of Rome. Euros 15 from railway station. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. For People with walking difficulties, it is a challenge, but not impossible. Lifts available. Free Wi-FI is fast and reliable.
