This hotel looks great from the website pictures and gives you a nice (yet, false) sense of good quality. My stay in Villa Rosa was to be for 13 nights. After 11 of them, I could take no more and left (I should have left long before, but I didn't). Lets go with the positive aspects of the hotel first:... More

We stayed at this hotel twice in May 2014, (beginning of our trip and at the end as we flew in and out of Rome). The first stay was okay, the receptionist was friendly (although was vague answering my questions about markets nearby, obviously she wanted us to opt for the 7 euro per person breakfast they serve). We didn't... More

The one thing that can be said about the hotel is its location to the train station. It is a short walk, but you have to be prepared to listen to the traffic that passes by during the night - including that of the trains. The room itself was fairly cheap, but it wasn't the best value I've found in... More

We booked into Villa Rosa for 5 nights at the start of this trip based on our past experience. Situated in Trastevere it's a colorful local area and importantly, access to the center of Rome is cheap and easy via the tram which is a couple of hundred meters down the road and which will transport you in a few...

We had booked a twin room for 3 nights with breakfast included. The hotel is well-situated just 5 min from the Trastevere station (we took the train easily from the airport to the hotel) and just 3 min from the no.8 tram, which takes you straight into the Pantheon/Forum area. The hotel was excellent value for money; evening meals here... More

We chose this hotel as it was close to the trains/ trams, without being too expensive. The staff were fantastic and very helpfull, rooms were clean and food was nice, we had 3 rooms as we were there for our daughters wedding, if we were to return to rome we would stay here again.

We actually felt this hotel was quite hard to find! We knew which road we were heading for, but walked past it several times - if you're approaching it from Trastevere station, then it is up some steps, which we kept missing! When we actually found it, we felt the hotel was quite nice - the reception was smart and... More

Located near the Trastevere train station with great access to all parts of Rome. Breakfast is ample, but would prefer fresh brewed coffee instead of the machine offered. The receptionists were very knowledgeable and willing to help. Now for the not so good.... We were woken to the sound of hammering in the room next to us a 8:30 am.... More

This property is located very near the Trastevere Train Station with great access to all parts of Rome. The breakfast is complete and has good coffee. The hotel staff is friendly, but only until you report a problem. On our second day in the hotel, we were warned by other guests that items had been stolen from their rooms. The... More

Visited the hotel in May 2013, the staff is friendly but that's as far as it goes! The 'Essential Double room' is extremely small and uncomfortable, the bathroom is even smaller and outdated. We paid for internet, failed to work and they refuse to refund. Definitely NOT recommended.

Dear Madam, Dear Sir, I apologize to know that your stay at the Villa Rosa was not satisfactory. Most probably you made a mistake when you have booked an "essential” double room, at a very cheap rate. Maybe the detailed description we have published on our web site, was not sufficient. Honestly I believe is sufficiently clear. These very few... More
