Great central location but very quiet. Wonderfully helpful staff, even let me use their computer to print out tickets. Comfortable and clean. Some of the electrical gadgets didnt work but as we had booked two appartments what didnt work in one we used in the other so it was not a big issue.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location ."
Great hotel within easy reach of trevi fountain and colleseum ,comfortable airconditioned rooms were essential in summer heat of Rome.Genuine Expedia guest review
We found the staff very helpful and friendly. We asked if we could leave our luggage at the hotel for a few days before we checked in and they were very willing to assist. Comfortable apartment, fantastic service, happy to help with all our inquiries. We would definitely return to Dolce Vita on any future trips to Rome.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Fantastic Hotel in Central Location."
We stayed at the DVR for my husband's 50th birthday. The location was superb. We were a short stroll from the Colisseum and the Trevi fountains and all the gorgeous bars and restaurants. We stayed in the Rita Hayworth studio apartment which was gorgeous. We had a tiny but cute balcony where we had our Prosecco in the evening. The staff were extremely […] helpful and smiley and nothing was a problem. They informed us that although breakfast wasn't included in our booking, they would bring us some coffee in the morning. In the event they brought us some sandwiches and toast too! The only negative was that the air-conditioning was pretty hopeless. The room got very hot in the night but we had to close the windows to keep the noise out. But that was a tiny thing compared with the overall experience which was fabulous. We would definitely stay there again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Little Gem in Central Rome"
Location is fantastic, your are right in the centre of the main tourist area to get an early headstart in those tourist queues. Bedroom comfort left something to be desired if you need a good nights sleep the mattresses were firm especially on the sofa bed arrangement. Early morning disturbance from the refuse collection can disrupt your sleep as other […] reviewers have stated. We just used earpugs. Apartment needed a bit of TLC, with the odd bulb missing and the ice compartment needed a good defrost. Shower area was a little neglected and could have used a light also. Overall though given the location advantages we would consider returning. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Dolce Vita Residence is Awesome...;-)"

"What a find in the Centre of Rome - Loved it!"
Loved the space of haviing a kitchenette, fridge, sofa etc. although the dining table had seen better days. Only Sky News in English on TV which was a shame. Lack of light unavoidable as all buildings in Rome are close together. No noise at night. LDV residence is so near everything, perfect for a little trip back for refreshments and then when rested […] off out again. We walked everywhere, so many surprises round every corner. Hotel staff were lovely, always ready for a chat about our day. Duvet/Bedspread needs a cover. Apartment was very clean and we had a wonderful time watching the Marathon, visiting St Peter's as it prepared for the new Pope's inauguration, and throwing our coins in the Trevi Fountain - see you again Rome Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Exellent hotel in excellent location"
This was an excellent hotel in an excellent location. Facilities were good and the fact that it was self catering meant you could do what you wanted. The hotel is also right by the bus stops.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location, but far too noisy."
We stayed at the Dolce Vita Residence for five nights in mid-February 2013. The accomodation is perfectly located for exploring the sights of Rome by foot, and the staff were extremely polite and helpful. However, there are two reasons why I feel that I cannot recommend the Dolce Vita: 1. The noise. We were woken at approximately 1am every night by […] the bin lorry which collects (and very noisely hydraulically crushes) the refuse from the alleyway which most of the apartments in the Dolce Vita Residence face onto. There is also another building nearby which is being noisily renovated, so we were woken most mornings at 7am with drilling noises loud enough to vibrate the floor of the apartment. Although these were external factors which are obviously beyond the control of the Dolce Vita Residence, they left us tired and irritable for the duration of our visit to Rome. 2. Very little natural light in the apartment. Due to the design of the Dolce Vita Residence, our apartment had only a single window , which faced a narrow alleyway. This resulted in the apartment being unpleasantly dark in the main living area, which did not encourage us to spend any time at the apartment, wheras we had intended to cook the occasional meal there and to use it as somewhere to relax between activities.

"Perfect, if you don't need to sleep."
Our trip was for my wifes 40th birthday and we travelled as a family with 2 children aged 14 and 11. We received a very warm welcome at the Dolce Vita from the lady on reception,we were a little early (which we knew) and she was very apologetic that our apartment wasn't ready, but couldn't be more helpful in taking care of our luggage so we could get […] straight out and exploring. We were given a great map on which she marked points of interest, supermarkets and a couple of restaurants with approx times for walking. When we got into the apartment we were really pleased, it was very clean and loads of room for the 4 of us. The best thing about the Dolce Vita is the location, it really couldn't be better trevi fountain, piazza navona, spanish steps and colosseum all 15 minutes. vatican 45 minutes. When you go to the colosseum you will be approached by guides doing english speaking tours, this is a MUST !! Try to do one that does Palatine hill at the same time, its around 25 euros. Whilst you in this part of town visit the Baths of Caracalla, few visitors do. We really liked the Dolce Vita but i must comment on the noise. I ignored other reviews thinking the people were being overly critical, but it is very very noisy, people talking on phones, cars with music pumping out, rubbish collections all hours of the night. Then construction at 7am !! In fairness not the Dolce Vitas fault, but maybe some extra special double glazing required. 9/10 would go back tomorrow (with ear plugs!!!)

"Best hotel/apartment for a family to say in"
We had a great time here. It was a true home away from home. The staff there treated us like family. If we ever go back to Rome this is where we be staying. We had our own kitchen. Which had everything in it that we need. A supermarket close by. And the hotel is place such that we could walk to all the sights. We found that a lot of family were booking […] this hotel and a lot of them keep coming back because of the service that they have gotten from the staff and the wonderful apartment. We went during Christmas. We were worried that most of it would be closed but everyday we were out and about with the wonderful weather. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel for location, but take ear plugs"
Location and room size were great. However we were in room number 2/3 on the first floor and the garbage collectors woke us up EVERY morning at 4AM!!! when they picked up garbage from the resturant in the alley!Genuine Expedia guest review
the staff were very helpful,taking our luggage to our apartment and explaining facilities. Location is great, in walking distance to cafes, restaurants, Trevi fountain, the Spanish steps, the coloseum the forum, and good shopping. You could walk to Vatican City probably take 3/4 hour. Local buses and open air hop on hop off buses are readily available […] close by. I would recommend Dolce Vita as the location and staff are great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Value For Money"
The location was great, within walking distance to all the main attractions. The room was very clean and the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. There beds weren't very comfortable and we could hear all of the noises from the rooms above and next door and we didn't have a toaster which was a little dissapointing for an apartment. On the whole […] it was great value for the centre of Rome and we would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect place to stay in Rome"
We were very impressed with the Dolce Vita Residence. we were a family of four, two children 4 & 7 travelling in July 2012. The location is perfect for seeing the Colosseum, Il Vittoriano, Spanish steps, trevi fountain etc. the apartments are modern, clean and the air conditioning is very welcome in the searing heat Rome has to offer. The apartment […] has a well equiped kitchen and is very spacious. The building is situated in a lane which is quiet enough except for the bin truck early in the morning, which can't be helped! Bring ear plugs. We hope to return to Rome next Aug for another wedding and we will be booking the DVR, without a doubt. Definitely the place to stay in Rome. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, great apartment and great service. We would definitely use this hotel again. We thought it was a weird location at first as it is in a very small alleyway but in fact it is extremely central. Great experience all around!Genuine Expedia guest review
Staff were very helpful. Only negative was that it was a little noisy. Proper shutters on the windows would have helped minimize the noise and light. This was our apartment. However other apartments had full blackout. I would stay there again. To all the staff, thank you!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location in the heart of Rome"
Pros - Location,location, location. Within 15 min walking of Trevi, piazza navona, piazza venezia, campo di fiori, colosseum, pantheon, cafes, restaurants and shopping. Huge apartment suite with washing machine (no dryer). Cons - hard beds, street noise and sirens (not their fault really). Book it, you won't regret it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Just back from 5 nights at the Dolce Vita. So close to everything. Fantastic. Room at Dolce Vita very nice. Really nice room and plenty of space. Wouldn't recommend the breakfast though.

"The Gringoes do Rome."
Like the Vatican Library, this little gem is rarely seen. We cannot speak highly enough of the staff at this accommodation - they were friendly, extremely helpful and made you feel part of their 'family'. The rooms or apartments themselves were exceptional. They were big, we had plenty of room for bags, shopping, etc. We also had a separate lounge […] room and bedroom. The rooms were clean, tidy and serviced daily. We were so fortunate to have stayed at this place. It is central to everything, and we do mean everything. Alll the attractions of old Rome are literally within walking distance. If you are considering travelling to Rome, look no further than this place. You will not regret it and you too will be as welcomed as we were. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel in wonderful place"
Dolce Vita Residence is a great little aparthotel in the center of Rome, near Piazza Venezia. All major tourist attractions are within walking distance. Hotel staff are very attentive; rooms are modern with classic elements.Genuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed staying at this hotel - stayed on two different occassions and in two different rooms. Rooms are more of the modern variety compared to other hotels in italy; was a central location to many sight seeing locations. cost about 10euro to get here by taxi from train station. wireless internet worked in one room but not the other, internet was […] free despite price listed on website. was cold one of the nights but unable to find an additional blanket in room. when we booked stayed in studio deluxe and executive room the second time, in hindsight i would just have stayed with studio deluxe, executive is larger and fits 3 people, but we did not need that and could have saved the cash. hotel has elevator (odd to write in review but should mention it as most of them you have to climb 3-4 flights of stairs). would stay here again due to location and it more modern looking interior compared to similarly priced hotels. hotel entrance is off to the side in a short sketchy looking street, but we felt quite safe, even at night. also hotel helped us call a cab for 5am to airport-40euro. standard fare as listed in cabs Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
