We had five nights at Martina House in March, and we´ve never stayed in such a nice place in Rome before. The room was fine and our hostess made us feel very well. She helped us with reserving a table and other practical issues and she shared our experiences at breakfast. The area is nice, and especially we enjoyed, the possibility of being in Borghese Park within af few minutes. We will certainly return if possible.

Just off Via Veneto, Martina House is a cozy B&B with easy access to many buses and the metro. The parquet floors, interior decoration and period furniture are lovely and inviting. What's really cool is the chain of escalators and jet-walks that take you all the way down the long hill along Borghese Park to the metro station at Spagna, the Spanish Steps. After a long day of site-seeing, it was great to RIDE uphill. Martina is a gracious host who is ready to answer any questions you might have or to suggest places to visit. She connected us with a terrific local art history specialist for a couple of days of guided tours. There are many fine restaurants nearby and it was great to simply cross the street for a stroll in lovely Borghese Park. Our first experience of Rome, we loved it and hope to return and stay at Martina House!

Thank you for expressing your opinion about your recent stay at Martina House and for appreciating the characteristics that most characterize us such a privileged location, close from the main monuments of Rome, close to the metro station and public transportation, the uniqueness of the furnishings, the cleanliness of the rooms, the friendliness and the team preparation. We do hope to see all your family again!!!

My husband & I started our Italian honeymoon at Martina House.
We arrived from Australia very early in the morning freezing cold & were overwhelmingly tired.
Carlo got out of his own warm bed to come & greet us & let us in.
We were absolutely overjoyed with everything about Martina House.
Firstly Carlo & Elena were the first most beautiful Italian people we met.
They did everything they possibly could to accomodate us in every way. When we arrived we had no set itinerary, we had just decided we would start by staying in Rome for 5 days & work out what to do afterwards.
We were delighted with the location because we could walk to "everything" & not have to worry about catching cabs or trying to work out the Public Transport.
Elena was so beautiful, her breakfasts in the morning were so thoughtful. Being Aussies, she deliberately went out to buy eggs & bread for us to have eggs & toast because she had heard that was what Aussies ate for breakfast. In all honesty, we were of the opinion, when in Rome-do as the Romans do so we were happy to have anything that was offered & whatever was "the norm" but that she had gone out to buy eggs especially for us was extra thoughtful & very sweet.
We had an issue having a shower too, because we didn't realise how the taps worked, at first we thought it was a plumbing issue, but after a quick chat with Carlo, all was sorted & we had beautiful hot showers & a very nice long sleep.
The view from the window was just beautiful of the hotel across from us & the street with the saxophonist playing below, watching the tourists & the locals strolling by so happily was lovely.
the Gardens next door were heavenly & we were so close to the Spanish Steps, The Trevi Fountain, so many Trattorias & Restorante's it was wonderful.
When we decided we wanted to stay an extra few days in Rome, Carlo & Elena made room for us at the Colosseo Apartment which was self contained & right opposite the Colloseum. (Please forgive my spelling - I have a chronic illness which has affected my neurological side).
In all honesty, my husband and I both cannot speak highly enough of Martina House, Elena & Carlo for their hospitality or for the service, location & everything we required. It was the perfect start to a perfect honeymoon & we would both more than willingly go back to Martina House at any time.
We firmly believe you get back what you put out. Elena, Carlo, my husband & myself spent many hours talking & learing about each other's countries. We would most definitely welcome them in our home at any time & sincerely thank them for their beauty & hospitality.
Immersing yourself in the culture of the location you are staying in is one of the best ways to enjoy such a beautiful place as Italy. We did just that & we will do it once again when our two small boys are a little older to enjoy it as much as we did.
Thankyou Elena, Carlo & Martina House for making our first week in Italy so wonderful. Your helpfulness whilst in Rome and in showing us other beautiful places to go etc were well worth the cost of our stay. You are both lovely, sweet & incredibly helpful people. Bless you both.

Martina House is located in the beautiful Via Veneto area of Rome. The location is ideal for me.
There is public transportation nearby and wonderful restaurants close at hand. Martina House is on the fifth floor of the building. The floors are beautiful parquet and the doors to each room are those beautifully painted original doors from the 1800s. Each morning the guests are served a continental breakfast usually made up of hardboiled eggs, bread, butter, jam, coffee, fruit, etc.
( A personal story: when Martina learned that my digestive system cannot tolerate caffeine she immediately went out and bought some peppermint herbal tea just for me.) My room was always kept clean and I found all of the staff to be very friendly and helpful.

Its a B&B. Good price for a location where hotels are charging $400+/room. Its great if all you're looking for is a place to sleep and get out in the morning. There are no thrills.There was WiFi to use free of charge. Martina, the owner, prepared us coffee,juice, bread, pastries, etc every morning, which was just perfect for our needs. She and her staff were very helpful with any info we needed for our day to day travels. We spent most of our days out site seeing, shopping and dining. The location is right in the center of the high end hotels, shopping and dining all within walking distance. We walked to all the site seeing areas from here and rarely had to use transportation. If you're looking for all the amenities, this is not for you, but if you are in Rome to get out and enjoy what this great city has to offer, Martina's House would suit you right. Good Travels.
