We stayed in Villa San Lorenzo Maria for 11 days in room 406.
The hotel is located in San Lorenzo, a lovely part of Rome. You won't see many tourists there, but mostly young, alternative people of all sorts. There's graffiti everywhere (although not all of it can be considered art ;)), you can find some really cool design and vintage shops there as well. On and around via dei Volci there are a lot of nice bars and restaurants where you get good value for money, and the food is just great. A big plus was that the waiters don't try to lure you in, but on the other hand, because San Lorenzo is not at all tourist-oriented, the bartenders/waiters don't speak English very well. What we liked a lot was having a drink in the square near the church. People gather there in the evening to have a drink together, and don't be surprised if you find yourself in the middle of a spontaneous jam-session. Getting from San Lorenzo to the city centre is just a short walk to the tram station (5 mins) and a short tram ride to termini (10 mins).
As for the hotel, we loved it! The rooms are decorated just as on the pictures of the hotel website. We stayed in a small triple room for 66 euro's a night (!). The room had a small balcony and was big enough for two, but rather small if you would stay there with three people. The beds were very comfortable and big. The shower was quite small, but it was ok. The room was clean and all the staff were really nice and helpfull. Wifi was free, just ask for a code at the reception. Breakfast was simple, but good enough, although we preferred getting some fresh bread at the supermarket next to the hotel and a coffee at the coffee-bar opposite to the supermarket.
All in all I had a great stay in the hotel and San Lorenzo itself. I would recommend staying in Villa San Lorenzo Maria to everyone who would like to stay in Rome, but avoid all the tourists, overpriced hotels and restaurants.
