We found the hotel after searching for locations near Piazza Navono, and were pleased to discover that it was also a short walk from other sights such as The Vatican City and St Angelo's Castle.
Just after booking, I emailed Vincenzo, the hotel owner and he kindly arranged a personal taxi from the airport to the residence, and also the return journey after our stay.
Vincenzo and Vera were very kind, hospitable and fantastic hosts. Vincenzo, in particular went out of his way to draw out a tourist route on a map whilst explaining some of Rome's extensive history.
We stayed in the Luxury Room, and it was spacious for a young couple, with a four poster bed, wardrobe/drawers and an en suit bathroom. The room contained a safety deposit box, mini bar, and was secure with card key entry.
We were delighted to find that the rook was cleaned to a high standard daily. We returned from our day out to fresh bed linen and fresh towels. I would rate the cleanliness of the hotel very high.
Breakfast was included within the stay. There is a small breakfast area, with a 'help yourself' system. A variety of breakfast food and drink was available, such as toast, croissants, coffee and juice.
The hotel's location was perfect for quick and easy access to most of the major sites. St Angelo's Castle and St Peter's Basilica are just over the River Tiber, a few minutes walk from building. Other sites such as the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain are also in close proximity, as well as a vast range of ristorantes and pizzarias. A bus or metro service is available close by to get to the further away sites (Colosseum), however we decides to walk and it only tool 20-30mins max.
Overall Residenza Ave is a fantastic place to stay for couples ideally. The service and hospitality is excellent, and the rooms are clean and more that satisfactory. A great place to stay for a tour of the sites of Rome.
