Residence Palazzo Al Velabro
Ranked #85 of 1,271 Hotels in Rome
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 September 2017

Otherwise it was a great location with easy walking distance to many attractions. Staff was great and very helpful. Facilities were very clean, but location was difficult for taxis to find because of construction and sections blocked off.

Room Tip: Only problem was the sewer smell in the room coming from the bathroom.

Residence Palazzo Al Velabro is an excellent place to stay while exploring the ruins, fountains and museums of Rome. Most of the major sites are within walking distance (40 minutes or less). Don't let the rough exterior concern you, once inside, the lobby is lovely. The gentlemen at the front desk are very friendly, extremely helpful, and fluent in English. The apartment has air conditioning, is very quiet, and cleaned daily. Missing something? Be sure to ask at the front desk; they are very accommodating! The Residence also provides "Handy", a cell phone from which you can make local calls, access the internet, find tourist suggestions, and best of all, access Google Maps to find your way around. There are several very nice restaurants within a block; check out "Normale" and "Il Roma" for local ingredients, friendly staff and authentic Italian cuisine. A breakfast buffet is available if desired. My only disappointment was the stained carpet which made the apartment less inviting when entering. The kitchen is frugally appointed (few pots, dishes for 2, and only a bar fridge) but adequate. We would definitely return!

We stayed here after a 10-day cruise and this proved to be a nice quiet retreat smack in the middle of a bustling neighborhood and city. Exactly what we needed. We chose this location because of the proximity to many of the major attractions and Roman ruins. It was a nice central location. There was even an old Roman arch and a small Catholic church just outside the front door. Restaurants were in short walking distance. The staff were extremely helpful in booking us taxis and providing directions. They even provided us universal plugs for our American devices to fit in European outlets. I would stay here again.
