Although the apartment was conveniently located, our experience was absolutely awful. Here are the reasons: 1) two beds were requested and we only had one queen bed. Used the sofa bed which has a mattress probably similar to a prison bed. There was no blanket. 2) Construction work at 8am just below on a week-end 3) Ridiculous check out time:... More

This cute little place is in a superb location of Rome, right of off an upscale Via Venetto with lots of restaurants, cafés and shops. It's a couple of minutes to walk to the Metro. Service was very good! Martina and her mom were very helpful. Breakfast felt like home. Martina was also very helpful in obtaining car services or... More

Martina house was surprisingly good for a self-run guest house. Martina herself was extremely hospitable and caring. The location is perfect and lots of parkings nearby. Great breakfast, real value for money. Of course the elevator is quite ancient but it was an authentic experience - felt like we really stayed in Old Rome.

This guest house was a great place to stay. We stayed for four nights in the beautiful historic rooms, which were very clean. Breakfasts were good, plenty to eat and Martina herself was lovely. I would definitely recommend this for those who don't conform to the norm and stay in large impersonal hotels.

Martina House is ideally situated at the top of Via Veneto and is within walking distance to the majority of the main sights. There are only four rooms in this beautiful apartment so it is nice and quiet and very clean. We spent four nights in Room 1 and had everything we needed (hair dryers ARE available if you ask...

Let me start by saying that some of the lower ranked reviews are correct. Marina House is not for everyone. You ride up to the 5th floor on what must be the original Otis elevator (mahogany and wrought iron). You enter Martina House which only has 4 guest rooms. The door keys fit locks in ornate doors from the early... More

For location, the hotel is good value for money.We walked to most sights and made the most of Villa Borghese nearby with our two children.The biggest advantage for us was having a quad room which was sufficient for our needs ie for sleeping. The beds were comfortable. I liked this hotel because it was personal and felt like Rome and... More

Martina House was a unique and personal space. It may not be for everyone, but for one night for us, it was comfortable and close to everything we wanted to be around that night. Air conditioning worked well and it had a unique and personal quality that made it a very comfortable experience. We felt like we were staying in... More

Staying in Ludovisi / Via Veneto

Neighborhood Profile
Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and Via Veneto neighborhood earned its reputation as a posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and models while bored housewives hung out in streetside cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the cocktails, but the neighborhood is now home to five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to Villa Borghese, a beautiful park for sporting and cultural adventures. If you're looking for tranquility by night, this may be the place: Ludovisi and Veneto tend to shut down after 8pm.
