A lovely weekend break for a belated birthday present which we shared with our best friends Sue & Keith. A lovely villa and garden hidden behind a big wall, a little bit of paradise in Rome.
Thank you Sante for being so friendly and helpful.

We had the experience of our lives at Villa Magnolia. From the lovely garden setting to the welcoming staff to the comfortable rooms, it was exactly what I had hoped for. Meeting Sante and his family gave us a view into the Italian culture we really enjoyed. I would highly recommend Villa Magnolia for its comfort, service, garden and the excellent care taken by our hosts to make us incredibly comfortable and welcome. Bravo and grazie!

Lovely to return to this green haven after being in the heart of the City. We really appreciated Sante's warmth and helpfulness, which couldn't be topped, and sitting drinking tea on the pleasant garden terrace in the late afternoon sunshine. The rooms are comfortable and there is a good spread at breakfast.
As others have commented, the location is a bit out of the way but you can walk down into Trastevere (down some steps, so harder coming up!) in about 15 mins or to St Peter's in 15-20. We ended up spending quite a bit on taxis but thought that was worth it to be sitting in that garden. You just wouldn't get that with a city centre place. The road outside is fairly busy (or maybe just average but with crazy Roman drivers!) and has no pavement, so it's not the place for a stroll, but we didn't notice the noise once through the garden door and our room was at the back.

Room Tip: We had room 5, at the back, which has 3 single beds. The only downside was that the 3rd bed is an i...

A beautiful tranquil oasis within walking distance of the eternal city. Booking was easy and the excellent service started even before we arrived. We were made most welcome for the duration of our stay. Sante and all the staff were attentive without being intrusive and made us feel that nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are stylish and very comfortable providing peaceful tranquillity at the end of the day. We will return!

My husband and I booked this hotel for a 55th wedding anniversary gift to our parents. They don't like flying or sailing so they travelled from England to Rome by train! I cannot thank Sante, the owner of the hotel, enough for going out of his way to accommodate them for the duration of their 6 night stay. He knew I was anxious as they have never travelled independently and kept in contact with me via email. They were met at the train station and taken to the Vatican to pick up tickets for the papal audience en route to the hotel. The room, hotel, breakfast, location and hospitality was 1st class in every way. They adored the ambience of the villa and couldn't believe it was so near the Vatican. As a result they experienced the trip of a lifetime and saw all the main sites in Rome. My husband and I hope to visit Rome soon and we are looking forward to staying at the Villa Magnolia. X
