- What's Included
The hotel had a special, so my travel agent suggested that we upgrade to a bigger room. We caught 2 buses & the train (1st cost $1.50/pers, then $2/pers and train $5/pers.from ship, Port of Citavichia. It's far! Didn't realize it was 80 km.& we left ship @ 7am, but got to hotel about 9:30am, standing on train w/2-29" bags & 2-21", plus backpacks, going up & down the stairs 25 steps +. We pd. extra for the buffet breakfast and had lots to choose from. Unbelievable breakfast! We had a King size bed and lanai (was a little noisy from the restaurant/bar below one night). The room was big and had a couch where another person could sleep,but it was only the 2 of us. The bathroom had a reg. toilet plus another duvet, the bathtub was big. We stayed 3 nights & the maid was wonderful. She brought us bathroom items everyday, towels were big too! We paid $1.50/person to catch the #8 Tram to go to the shopping area. You buy your ticket from the drugstore or Tobacco shop. The clerk at the reception desk gave us a map & you get off at the end. Shopp'g area is really huge! Everything in the stores are reasonable! Found a Disney Store & bought Tsum Tsums that's not sold in U.S. Went 2X. Am looking for Baby Goot. About less than 15 min. on the Tram, every 15 min. The hotel puts the key on a big keyring that you give to them when you leave the hotel, for security in case you lose your room key. They have a bowl of apples in the lobby area that you can just pick up when leaving the hotel in case you get hungry. There are 2 elevators to use, a little small but it's okay. The AC was good!
Really cool, funky hotel. Lots of wild and weird furniture around, like the human sized bulldog that greets you at the door, and the purple velvet ostrich greeting you on your way to the generous breakfast buffet. Great location and friendly staff. Perfect place to stay if you want easy access to central Rome without being in the overly touristy areas!
15th June 2017Currently staying here Room is dirtyStaff is terrible,really bad attitude arogant.Aircon doesn't work at all WiFi doesn't work wellI don't want any vafours just give me what you promised and what I am paying for. Ripa hotel Never again
We have stayed at the Ripa several times. Firstly the location is superb - in Trastevere (and not near the train station end which looks less desirable), it is a short tram ride or 10 minute walk to the beautiful heart of Trastevere with one minute's walk from the hotel to the tram stop. The same tram takes you to the heart of Rome (it is within walking distance or 10 minutes on the tram and you're near all the main sites. The staff are very helpful, the rooms very large (compared with others we've stayed in in Rome). The breakfast buffet is excellent and lactose free milk available. The décor will not be to everyone's taste but it is modern and, in my opinion, quite funky.
we arrived late so decided to eat in the restaurant and were very impressed by the selection and quality of the food on offer. I think my tuna steak was the best meal I had all week in Rome which is saying something,The hotel is in a good location, very close to trams which take about 10 minutes into the heart of the city, but also only a few minutes walk from lots of bars and restaurants in trastevere. We are a family of 4 and were upgraded on arrival to a suite with 2 bedrooms so got more than we bargained for, and the children were delighted that the room came with a Nintendo wii. The room was a bit quirky with a shower in the middle of one of the bedrooms, and some slightly strange padded vinyl floors.The included buffet breakfast was comprehensive with continental pastries, fruit cheese, cold meate etc. but also bacon and scrambled eggs available.I think the only downside for us was that there was a bit of street noise.
