Our stay at the Velabro was exactly as we would have liked it to be. Comfortable and relaxing. A pleasure. The apartment nicely furnished and spacious. The view amazing. We were warmly welcomed and serviced. The Velabro is so conveniently located that we could reach many spots, including metro station when needed, with just a nice short walk. We stayed... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here last June for 4 nights while in Rome. Long story short: it was PERFECT for us! Location was ideal, we ended up walking everywhere (literally, everywhere) from the Vatican, Galleria Borghese, Spanish Steps, etc. The only time we took transportation was on a bus from the train station to get to this neighborhood. We... More

Very nice staff and it was nice having a separate bedroom. Free breakfast and coffee. Cons- a bit out of the way of major attractions in central Rome and the room was a bit wore out. Also not many food options in short walking distance. We have 2 young kids and took advantage of the little market that is around... More

Very clean, very comfortable and stylish. Staff are wonderful. Breakfast basic but good. Wonderful location overlooking Piazza della Bocca della Verita. Cafe and restaurants around the corner along with weekend fresh market.

We stayed here for a week while seeing the fabulous sights of Rome. There were 5 of us in 2 rooms. Very comfortable suites with lots of room. The location is a bit out of the way but it is within walking distance to lots of tourist sights and places of interest. You will have to pay for Wi-Fi -... More

Palazzo Al Velabro is an apartment that offers space that would cost a fortune in a regular hotel. It is at the base of the Palatine Hill and, our room afforded a fantastic view of the legendary founding place of Rome. We had a terrace that looked out over a beautiful garden (see photo). The apartment was clean and well... More

After many many visits in Rome where only upmarket hotels were really satisfactory, the Residence Palazzo Al Velabro provides for half their cost at a central location, with very nice views in many rooms, actually suites.You really do not get an army of staff which anyhow you may not need, and the breakfast is average. No restaurant on the premises... More

I booked and stayed in 2 rooms in this hotel back in July 2013, for my family. This was our final destination during our 14 day European vacation and though we stayed in quite a few nice hotels the Palazzo al Velabro was by far the Very Best of ALL! Phenomenal Staff, very Spacious, Clean rooms, and the location was... More

We stayed here for a week in October and it was great...not in the busy and bustling area for night life in Rome, but some good restaurants reasonably near by and a decent breakfast option in the hotel. If you are interested in Roman ruins, the Forum is just a block away and the Colliseum and Circus Maximus are just... More
