Nice hotel, but the room was a little crammed May 28, 2011
The hotel was nice and the staff helpful. It's literally 2 blocks away from the Vatican Museum, so very close to St. Peter's and Castel Sant'Angelo, but a bit far from the Ottaviano Metro stop (about 15 minutes walking). The hotel indeed had a kitchen but I wouldn't qualify it as an apartment or 'residence.' Everything was really crammed into the room and not a lot of space to fit it all so it wasn't the most comfortable but it was very clean. The surrounding neighborhood was great. Across the street is a wonderful restaurant that we ate dinner at every night called Piacere Molise.

I spent four months living here while studying abroad in Rome, but it seems to also be available for shorter stays. It's located kind of far from the city center, but it's right by the Vatican Museum and St. Peter's, and probably lot less touristy than other hotels. In general, the residences are small but functional. There seems to be a big difference in quality among the different residences, as if each apartment was designed by a different architect and at the end they were all welded together. In the place I stayed in, we had 2 small bedrooms, a tiny kitchen, and a malfunctioning shower head that sprayed water all over the bathroom floor whenever anyone tried to take a shower.

The staff could be friendlier. If something goes wrong with your apartment and an older, ornery looking lady is on duty at the front desk, you're better off trying to fix the problem yourself rather than asking her, because she will start screeching at you andmake you feel likeyou've insulted her country, family, and entire way of life. There is also daily room service, but this is a mixed blessing, because in reality the maids are spies who will report you for any minor thing that you might be doing wrong. Don't even try to hide a guest in your apartment, because the maids will see that extra sweater lying on the floor next to your bed and you'll be fined under some obscure, ancient, anti-mafia Italian law that makes it illegal to have overnight guests without paying a fee.
