As a very special trip to Rome to celebrate a milestone birthday the gods smiled on us when we chose to stay in the Roof Terrace Suite in the Residenza Napoleone III part of Palazzo Ruspoli. Its website doesn't really do justice to how lovely it is. My only concern had been the space in the bedroom/bathroom and we arrived... More

The rooftop suite is an exquisitely chic, casual jewel with knockout views from a large garden terrace. It was a completely different experience than the grandeur of the gorgeous main suite my husband and I adored on our last visit several years ago. Both apartments showcase the world-class decorating and style of the warm and gracious Princess Letizia, and are... More

I'm not sure but I felt like I was here before. Even my Italian started to come back to me. Nevertheless, this residence is unique and its become one of our best stays in Roma. The hostess is professional and more than capable of handling any dinner booking or event planning. She makes the stay that much more relaxed and... More

My wife and stayed at the Residenza Napoleone in October 2013 and absolutely loved it. The location could not be better and the main Suite is incredible, like a musuem but not too precious, and almost too spacious whcih in Rome is unheard of. It not not your typical hotel in that there are no services per se, but Beatrice... More

We stayed three nights in the Roof Garden Suite and loved it. The cozy and snug bedroom, private lounge and garden terrace were such respite from the hustle and bustle of Rome. Right from the begining (from our email enquiry and correspondence) until our departure, Beatrice has been exceptionally wonderful. Her genuine friendliness, warmth and competence were so refreshing.

Right from the start, the service was personal and warm. We got a little lost in the streets of Rome on our way to the palazzo and when we phoned La Residenza, Beatrice (the manager) ran out to find us. The place basically looks like a museum. We stayed in the Garden Roof Suite and when we came out onto... More

We spent 2 nights at La Residenza Napoleone in October. Beatrice could not have been more helpful, and the suite was literally amazing - like staying in your own Roman palazzo. We loved the 'hidden' bathroom and kitchenette, and it was lovely to retreat to our calm and spacious rooms after busy days sightseeing. The location is perfect, with delicious... More

We stayed in a suite for our anniversary and what a charming experience it was. The rooms are beautiful and it felt like being part of the stylish lifestyle of Rome. The service and support were excellent - nothing was too much trouble. The candle lit room when we returned in the evening and the charming breakfast were highlights. The... More
