The hotel is very conveniently located within easy walking distance of the Forum, Colosseum and Pantheon. This is not a chain hotel with bar or restaurant and if that is what you want look elsewhere and pay twice as much. It is an excellent small hotel. The bedroom was large and well equipped. The bathroom was modern and the suite... More

We stayed at the Residenza Gens Julia for four days at the end of April early May. We have nothing but positive comments about the hotel and its location. Although there are buses and tramways just outside the hotel, we decided to walk everywhere as the hotel is well centralized, about 20 minutes to the Colosseum, 30 minutes to the... More

Phenomenal customer service. Ernesto and Sergio went above and beyond. Prosecco at check in and each evening around 5 or 6 when we returned to the room. A free bottle of water each day. Free umbrellas to use. My luggage was lost and Sergio called and checked for it daily as well as assisted with reservations. These guys understand great... More

Right smack in the middle of the ancient ruins of Rome. Charming place, immaculately clean and a very large bathroom by European standards. We loved it. You can get to any of the most popular destinations within minutes and walking helps to burn off the calories from all the great food and wine.

This BB is located right in the center of ancient Rome and 2 minutes from the Jewish Ghetto. Our room was big and had all the conveniences, Actually the entrance, elevator and room were a bit rundown (we are a somewhat spoiled) . Ernesto and his brother who are in attendance are very friendly and trying to help in everyway.... More

The location of Residenza Gens Julia is perfect for visiting the ancient ruins of Rome. The Largo di Torres d'Argentina where Caesar was killed is right out the door. The Portico d'Ottavia is within walking distance and lots of buses stop right there. If you want dinner reservations made by Ernesto, make sure you talk with him before going out... More

In the centre of all tourist attractions. Beautiful room with excellent, most helpful staff. I could not find fault with this apartment. I would definitely recommend to anyone going to Rome on holiday.

If you plan on traveling to Rome and want to stay at a Hotel/B&B in the heart of Rome that is within walking distance of many of the ruins and major sights to be seen, then plan to stay at Residenza Gens Julia. Everything about this Residenza is top notch. When we first secured our reservations the Hotel Proprietor (Sergio)... More

From the street you can hardly find it but once we entered we were pleasantly surprised. The staff, Ernesto and Lito, were always pleasant and helpful and the manager also helped with suggestions for good, non-touristy restaurants. Our room overlooked the Largo di Torre Argentina and it was fun to watch the cats that live there. Our room was huge... More

This 5-room hotel was just perfect for us. It's on the 3rd floor of a building just 5 minutes on foot south of the Pantheon. You can walk to everything. The room and bathroom were very spacious and super clean. There is free wifi, a safe, a fridge, a hairdryer. and a/c. A bottle of water was provided each day... More
