if you're interested in the Rome of the Caesars then this is the perfect place to stay. you are literally 1 block from the Collesium which means no taxi, no metro, no effort is required to see all that Ancient Rome has to offer. the room was average to average plus (this is no Embassy Suites!) but the staff was very nice. only true negative was the shower door, or lack thereof. if you're travelled in Europe before you've probably seen similar things in many hotels but the lack of a good door soaked the entire bathroom floor after every shower!!

It's an amazing hotel with an excellent location, right across from Foro Romano and the Colosseum. The breakfast on the top of the building was outstanding with a breathtaking view. The most friendly staff I have ever met. We could check into our room before our time, they recommended us restaurants close by, visited by locals (1/2 the price than the restaurants for tourists.) They really made our stay so welcomed. We highly recommend this hotel to stay if you visit Rome. We will definitely stay there again.

Booked for a Superior Double, the room was so small, there wasn't even enough room for 2 suitcases inside - had to put one in the wardrobe!! We had to walk up a flight of metal stairs outside, to get up to the room. The breakfast was very limited (stale bread - no toaster - cornflakes, yoghurt, some ham and packet cheese and some stale pastries, even the coffee was instant) On the positive the beds were very comfortable - slept like a log and the location was very good, being only a couple of minutes walk away from the Colosseum.

We had one of the very recently renovated rooms. They were very modern, very nice. Air conditioning worked very well, good thing it was 38 during the daytime. Breakfast on the roof was very very nice, good food,cappuccino,espresso. Very good staff. They did have a few hours of problems with the wireless/internet, but for me at least,it was understandable given the heat. The location is absolutely wonderful. Good walks to all the sites,very close to Flavian amphitheatre,(Colosseum)& Forum. One of the real benefits we received recommendations to A very special restaurant!!!

We were very pleased with the Richmond. This was our second visit to Rome and we wanted to be closer to the historical area- the location was perfect- just across the street from the Forum and within walking distance of the Coliseum and the Vatican (a long walk to the latter). The hotel staff were outstanding- very helpful and pleasant. We had a problem with the sofa bed in our room and the situation was remedied immediately and much to our satisfaction. Our first morning we were late to breakfast and the area was being closed but the woman on duty was very pleasant and kept it open for us. Our room was spacious, but some of the singles are quite small though adequate so if size is important it would be wise to ask abt the size of the room when reserving. We would definitely stay here again!

The hotel does not deserves its 4*. The plaster in lobby is peeling off, the room badly needed the renovation. The air conditioner produced such a noise, you would not be able to sleep. The room itself was extremely small, with a tiny window under the ceiling, the bed was suitable for short persons only. A bathroom in 4* hotels must have a bidet, unfortunately this is not applicable for Richmond. Fortunately, the stuff was very welcoming and professional and this brightened up the flaws of the hotel

Hôtel facilement accessible depuis la gare Termini. Très bien situé, tout à côté du forum romain et du Colisée. La plupart des plus beaux sites sont accessibles à pied, même avec des enfants. Et pour les moins courageux, il y a tous les bus à proximité. Décor de l'hôtel très agréable. Très beau point de vue depuis la terrasse ensoleillée, idéale pour bien commencer la journée avec un bon petit déjeuner. Chambre triple très spacieuse à la décoration sobre et chic. Personnel agréable et disponible. On le conseille vivement pour les familles et on y retournera !

The hotel Richmond was as it appeared on the web site. The rooms were clean and the hotel very quiet, but for some street noise, which was to be expected. We booked several rooms; the single room was smaller than expected. One room's air conditioning was not up to premium working order, but held its own. The breakfasts were quite nice and the roof top setting perfect. The location was as promised: right across the street from the Forum. Fabio, the desk clerk/ concierge was fabulous. He was helpful, friendly and accommodating.

I have stayed at the Hotel Richmond many times over the years and can say that it is one of my favorite hotels in the world. It is small and friendly with a staff that will give you a hand in anyway that it can. The location of this hotel could not be better for seeing Rome on foot. I have stayed here alone as well as with my son who at the time was 11 years old. My son also like the hotel and the staff made him feel as if there was no one in the world more important to them that him! One minor limit to the hotel is that internet access is limited and it must be paid for.

It's an old building, very very very close to the foro and when you see the outside, you don't think this could be an hotel,but the inside it's much better. the only problem it's that it's a little noisy, but it was good enough to repeat. the ubication and the views were awesome.

The hotel is a bit pricey, but the location is excellent and the staff were pleasant and helpful. The breakfasts were very nice.

We stayed in Rome for 3 days, a family of 4 with 2 children aged 8 and 10. Hotel Richmond is ideally located literally right next to the Colosseum and that was great. However, we had some difficulties finding it even with the help of a GPS and a map, because it is not visible. The front of the hotel is covered by a gas station and a restaurant, plus the address given is probably not the appropriate one? I would suggest Via Cavour 1 istead, based on our experience. The staff were very polite and very helpful, the breakfast venue (terrace) was breathtaking, the breakfast itself was ok. One major comment I need to make is that the hotel interior is in desperate need of a renovation. Also, I did find a few ants in the room and one other (very small) insect in the bathroom, although in general everything looked clean... For these reasons, the very high price we paid cannot be justified just by the hotel's central location. I would return to the property only if its interior is renovated and the price was a little better.

We were staying because of my International Congress, but took some days extra to see Rome. The place was excellant, the roof for breakfast superb and the people who work there were very kind and helpful. We did not like the noise, but it was probably difficult to diminish. The place is in the middle of lively traffic and Italians tend to use their signal horns more than at home

The location was closest to the Colosseum and the Forum which was great. We stayed in a family size room and I was disappointed because I thought we would have one double bed and two twin beds in the room. We had a double bed, a cot and a sofa. The room was located in the front of the building facing a busy street was it was quite noisy. However, coming from the city this didn't bother us much. We didn't need the air conditioning; however, the carpet was wet as it was leaking. The staff remedied this by putting down towels. The room remained damp. We didn't eat at the rooftop breakfast buffet as the food was not covered very well and the birds were feasting on it well before we got there. Overall, I would recommend this hotel because of the price and location.

We booked two rooms, one for the children and one for us for 5 days. The kids room was fair, but looked and smelled dirty; carpet, bedspreads etc. Small, old TV, electrical outlets were an electrical fire looking for a place to happen, and few of them and in inconvenient locations for computer access. Their room faced the street and was noisy, however the alternative which was "air conditioning" was substandard and the room was stiffling. Our room was smaller than a closet. We had to move the suitcases from place to place just to enter the mini bathroom. Door to room almost hit bed, 12 inches from bed to wall on other side. Closet could not even accomodate three items. Air conditioner also substandard and loud. Desk in the room was useless as it was needed to place other items which had nowhere else to go. Electrical plugs included one power strip under desk with frigo bar and tv already plugged into it, already overloaded for age of hotel. Restaurant (breakfast) service was terrible, both in quality and service. I wanted to check out immediately but my husband was too polite to do so. Very disappointing experience. Redeeming quality. Staff was very helpful and very nice.

Emma, Janet & Fabio, the front desk crew, made our vist. Anything we wanted...they found. Any questions...they got the answers. Special requests... no problem. Breakfast was pretty standard fare, but enough to get you going for the day. The rooftop breakfast area with it's views made the food better! Overall..I would stay there again.

Their English was excellent and any information provided by them was very reliable and accurate. Location was excellent as we could walk to everything. There was alot of street noise but given the location, it was unavoidable. Don't go to the pizzeria on the corner to the right of the hotel. Go to Dodo on Via dei Serpenti about a block up Via Cavour - excellent value. Alot of good value restaurants on Via Dei Serpenti. GO to the Chinese restaurant on Via Cavour - excellent value, good food and great people.

I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Richmond. The location is fantastic, near the monuments and walking distance to the Metro, Colosseum, and city center. The staff was very kind and helpful. The terrace where you have breakfast has a beautiful view of the roman ruins, extraordinary also for an italian like me, used to see Florence, Rome and beautiful views. The buffet breakfast was very rich and variated with local food such as "ricotta cheese", fresh salads and chopped vegetables. You can find several good restaurants in the streets facing the hotel. Between them I recommend "Trattoria dei Fori Imperiali" excellent food in local, clean ambiance.

Hotel Richmond has several good qualities that make it a place I would stay again. First, the location is spectacular; right at the entrance to the Forum. Secondly, the personell; extremely helpful with any questions and very attentive to any needs over a stay of four nights. Third, rooms are clean, quiet and secure. Fourth, the roof-top terrace; simple but very pleasant in the morning regardless of weather. Lastly, surprisingly I am saying the room. My room was quite small, but served my needs very well and really, why have a huge spacious room when I went to Rome to see the city, not a hotel room. The shower was extremely small, but having worked on a ship, nothing new to me. When I go back, it will be very easy for me to choose to stay in the Richmond again.

From the outside the Hotel doesn't look great but as soon as you walk through the door your impression changes as the staff as extremely welcoming and not in an insincere patronising way. The location is terrific, the view from the roof terrace of the Roman Forum is stunning. My room was extremely comfortable ( I had been upgraded and I believe not all the rooms to be as big as the one I had ). A lovely bathroom with all toiletaries you could imagine, as there is always something you forgot to pack. A sky box in the room with satelite TV with a translation option to view programs in English is a welcome change from the usual CNN found in other hotels although given the location of the hotel across the road from the Forum and a stroll from the Colloseum and centre of town with so much to do and see in the city there is little time to watch TV. A good selection on the menu for breakfast. I ended up staying in the Richmond by default. The first hotel I had booked into could not accomodate my last night. I chose the Richmond on account of the location and very competive price. My first Hotel was twice the price, quite a distance from the centre of town with indifferent staff. I was sorry I had not spent my entire week in The Richmond, they at least restored my faith in the Hotel Service Industry in Rome. They may not have a bar in the hotel, but it is not big and there is a cafe bar outside and plenty of other places only seconds away . This does not mean that the location is noisy but if you are a light sleeper they even supply you with ear plugs beside your bed! Definately a place to recommend on so many levels and I would happily stay there again.

The reason why I chose this hotel is that the location is wonderful. I was able to walk to many of the tourist spot. I stayed at a single room of this hotel for 10 days. I stayed comfortably at this hotel. The room was small. However, it was an enough area for one person. I requested A Room With a View. If the louver door was shut, the noise was not anxious, and relaxing while looking at a part of ruins from the window was happy. The regrettable one is that the wallpaper peeled off a little. The price is a little bit expensive. However, it is cheap one in the hotel in Rome. I was satisfied with this room in this price. When I entered the room, I noticed the drier broken. I reported it to the reception desk, and went out. When I came back to my room, it had been already repaired. They did quick correspondence to the guest's demand. They were kind, and pleasant. I ate breakfast in the terrace where the view was good. Breakfast was enough good. The view was great. If you want to eat breakfast comfortably, it is good to avoid about eight o'clock. It spoilt because of the noise of the garbage truck. This is a good hotel. I want to stay again here.

Although we had a printed confirmation in our hands, they did NOT have a reservation for us the first night we arrived. They gave us (at a reduced rate) a small, single room with a "French" bed that was very cramped for two people. Our second night was fine in the room we had actually reserved. How does this sort of thing happen after carefully making reservations months in advance through Venere ???

The hotel is in an excellent location for sightseeing and the staff are very friendly and efficient. I stayed for just over a week on a business trip and it was so nice to walk back into the hotel and have your key handed to you without asking for it as the staff took the time to remember your name. The breakfast terrace was a beautiful place to eat with a wonderful view of the Forum.

The hotel had been recommended to us, and we certainly weren't disappointed. It was in a superb location and we were able to walk to all the sites we wanted to vist. (The furthest, The Vatican, being about a 30 minute walk.)The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The room (306) was a little on the small side, but as we hardly spent any time in it, that really wasn't a problem. It was kept spotlessly clean and the facilities were first class. The buffet breakfast was amazing - so much choice - and the view was great, too. We only experienced a little noise early on one morning when the rehearsal for the Republic Day Parade was taking place. (Unfortunately, we left the day before the actual parade so missed the real thing.)Especially considering the hotel's location,it was really quiet. This was a great base for our holiday in Rome and we would certainly stay there again.

We have stayed at the Richmond several times and will no doubt do so in the future (thus my choice to be anonymous). I find the hotel to be a good value overall for Rome and the Centro. However, I did notice a slide in cleanliness in our room (long hairs in the tub and on the bathroom floor, for example), and the air freshener scent really is too heavy. The staff are always excellent as is the car service they use for the airport.

This is a small hotel with limited facilities (No diningroom or bar). The rooms are small but clean and adequate for a short city visit. The breakfasts were adequate. It is expensive for a 3 star hotel (it is in Rome!) but it is literally across the road from the Forum and a 3 minute walk from the Colosseum. The main sights of the city are within walking distance or you can take the Metro from outside the Colosseum. There are several good pavement cafes directly outside the front door. (Do NOT eat across the road in the Forum Hotel Restaurant as it is a total rip-off with poor food and dreadful service.) The reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. If we return to Rome we will stay here again.

My family and I stayed towards the end of February for 4 nights.We have 2 sons aged 10 and 14.The hotel was great for a family.The staff were fantastic. They were friendly and helpful and gave us lots of good advice on places to eat.The location of the Hotel is ideal as it is near the Colosseum and within walking distance of most of the main attractions.The family room we had was a good size.Clean and comfortable. It looked out on to a busy road which didn't cause us any problems given the time of year as we did not need open windows. The Continental Breakfast was excellent and we ate plenty before we headed out for the day. We had a great holiday made all the better for the wonderful staff.Great Hotel for a family.

A nice, clean hotel in an excellent location, close to the Colloseum and Metro. A bit expensive, but this is Rome and we needed a room big enough for 4 people (2 adults and 2 teenagers), so it was what we expected. Nice restaurants right outside the front door. They let us have an hour late checkout, which worked well with our train schedule. One small negative: when we came back to get our bags and check out, the maid was already stripping the beds and cleaning the room. That meant she had to move our suitcases and clothes, and in doing so she covered my son's baseball cap. When we realized later that day that it was missing we called the hotel. They found it the next day, and promised to mail it back to us at our home.

The hotel is in the prime location for Forum Romanum which is my primary interest in Rome. The reception employees were extremely helpful. The only drawback in times of strong winds such as we experienced is its roof garden breakfast.

Large bedroom (triple) with very poor lighting. Huge room sall windows, no ceiling light. No shower !! this was big negative with 3 of us getting ready in the morning. Layout of room very basic. Bed rock hard. 1st floor overlooking pavement cafe so if you had smaller children going to bed earlier it would be noisy. Some other hotel rooms had no natural light at all. Location was excellent though and the buffet breakfast was good. Roof terrace would be lovely in summer.

We started our trip there. We had room 102. It had a window, no view but very quiet. We also went back to end our trip there. We had room 104. Very nice view but on the street and more noisy. The rooms are very clean. We would stay there again without hesitation.

Overall for location, price and friendly staff the hotel is very good. I only have one negative thing to say. We had three double rooms as we were a party of six. Two of the rooms were of a good size, but the third was very small, half the size of the other two and with hardly enough room to walk around the bed. The hotel did move our friends on the last night to a larger room, but only because there was a problem with the bathroom in the small room. We all paid the same, and the experience of the hotel was obviously different for those in the very small room. Location was great though!

Fabio, front desk clerk, was especially friendly and helpful. Room was clean and spacious (actually 2 rooms, 1 with a double bed and 1 with 2 twin beds). Best of the 3 places we stayed in Italy. Breakfast was more like brunch with cereals, breads, fruit, lunchmeat, yogurt, juice, coffee, and milk. Location was excellent - very near the Forum. Would definitely return.

Our first stay in room 201 was really great, however on our last day in Rome, we stayed in room 306 and that was inferior. Room 306 is the reason why I put the ratings in the middle. The interior of the room 306 is in poor condition, it is also the size of a single room with a double bed, tiny bathroom, leaking shower and still costs the same as the larger cleaner room 201. 306 was Definitely not worth the price. On the bright side Hotel Richmond has the most comfortable beds and we had our best sleep in Italy in both rooms. The breakfast is a bonus, the food is plentiful and delicious and the staff at the hotel is the best.

Das Hotel Richmond ist absolut genial gelegen, zwischen Kolosseum und Vittoriano, und alle Sehenswürdigkeiten sind zu Fuss erreichbar. Auch zum Bahnhof sind es zu Fuss höchstens 15 Minuten. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und diskret, nur der Nachtportier bei unserer Ankunft war sehr unfreundlich...aber vielleicht war er müde, es war schon etwas spät. Alles in allem ein schöner Aufenthalt, trotzdem finde ich 190 Euro pro Nacht im Doppelzimmer selbst für Rom sehr teuer. Das für italienische Verhältnisse ausserordentlich reichhaltige Frühstück und die wunderbare Aussicht von der Frühstücksterasse rechtfertigen den Preis ein bisschen. Wem es also egal ist, ein bisschen mahr zu bezahlen, der findet im Richmond ein hübsches, sehr sauberes, sehr gut gelegenes Hotel.

Very Friendly staff, great location (yards from the Roman Forum and within sight of both the Colosseum and the Vittoriano). Our room was not spacious but could not be described as cramped. Air conditioning was top class and very much required (July). Breakfast was average and was very quick to be cleared away ( Receptionist indicated that breakfast was served till 11am but every day the staff started clearing the buffet at 10:20ish) Overall not a bad stay for Rome which is notoriously expensive !!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Richmond Hotel (3 days) and it was close to the Colliseum and bus stops as indicated in your brochure/online. We had a king bed and the room was very clean but were small rooms and not much space to move around. As soon as you walk outside there were outside restaurants so we did not have to go far for meals or a drink. The continental breakfast on top of your roof was great and the view was spectacular. I would fully recommend this hotel to other friends and family.

Excellent location close to Ancient Rome. The rooftop breakfasts gave us great views and observations of life in Rome. The room/bath was adequate space/comfort for all four of us. The price was reasonable with walking distances for restaurants/history/Metro line. Staff was pleasant, although not completely confident showing Rome to their visitors. Air conditioning was an essential for a hot summer in the city, and we were glad of it! I would happily return at Hotel Richmond.

This is an OK hotel in a good location but suffers a bit from the noise of the busy road. The room was fine. I paid for a double room for single occupancy which was a bit expensive. The corridors and staircases were in bad need of redecoration - peeling wallpaper and grubby carpets - gave a rather seedy feel to the place. The location made up for a lot though and the rooftop breakfast setup was nice.

The service was always nice and friendly helping us to make reservations at all the restaurants we wanted to go to. The hotel is situated right in the centre so that you only have to go outside to start your sight-seeing tour. So if you don't want to spend too much time in your room, I would say it's a good choice.

Excellent hotel in a fabulous location. Our room was very spacious and comfortable (2 adults, 3 kids). Only complaint about room was FILTHY carpeting (walking around in white socks turned them black). Our room didn't have a shower, but had a large bathtub with a handheld shower head, which we used. There was a shower available in the hall bathroom (only four rooms on floor - we were in #201 overlooking the street). Front desk staff were always helpful and cheerful. Each day we set off in a different direction and walked everywhere. Vatican was furthest point away (2 miles) with everything else of interest much closer. Nice continental breakfast on roof with view of Forum. Restaurants right outside front door were quite good. If we're lucky enough to visit Rome again we'd gladly stay at this hotel. 45 euros cab ride from Fiumicino (scary experience due to speed, lane changing and tailgating - wear seatbelts and pray) or take the train at the airport (8.50 euros pp) and then a cab (8 euros) from the main train station to the hotel.

Excellent and helpful staff, with great location. Only problem was the overall damp of the room...rug felt moist all the time; and some weird scent thing they used to ? hide what odour...absolutely sickening overperfumed scent...someone should tell them a dehumidifier and cancelling what ever makes that smell would go a long way to improving the experience there (which was otherwise very good value and very pleasant).
