“Good choice”
Reviewed October 4, 2011

I didn´t expected so much and I was suprised. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpfull. The room was basic, but very clean. After first night we moved to other room because of the noise from big road under the window, but after that it was all ok. Bad was comfort for two people and bathroom was perfect. Breakfast was better than I expected - juices, coffee or tea, chocolate...small baguettes, jams, cheese, salami and many kinds of sweet pastry. The hotel is near to railway station which goes to airport, so this is very good. To the centre you can go by bus 3 or tram 8.

One has to judge this hotel keeping in mind the reasonable cost and location. The cost is EU 185 which is very reasonable but by no mean do not expect it to be a Hilton in Rome. As for location it is very close to the bus stop 3 to take you to the colosseum, the tram to Argentina to take you to the Pantheon and Campo D'fiore and regiona train to take you to the main terminal or to the airport.

The location is also where the people who work in Rome live. So do not expect Beveryly Hills but an area where there is the local butcher, small market, and grand ma and grand pa around the center sitting watching their grandkids play. Authentic? Yes. Noisy, drunk, people waking up early to get to work...Yes, yes, and yes. Do not expect a suburm in US...but a real, neighborhood where a community has lived and grown up in.

Now the down side of the hotel...bed was tough...but the room was bigger than what I got in Tokyo for the same price range. The room was bigger but my hotel in Tokyo was cleaner. Because of the price, it is popular to other tourists from Italy and other neighboring nations like Spain, Portugal, and Greece. It can get a bit noise from other guests and neighbors on the street. However, the front desk is very supportive to tell other guests to quiet down. They were able to tell a group of students on a tour to quiet down so I can get some sleep.

Breakfast is ok but there is a pastry shop on the corner that has an amazing cappuccino.

I gave this hotel a 4 because it was a palce to rest and shower and the proximity to all the transportation and the feeling that you live there with the locals and actually "live" in Rome was priceless.

Room Tip: There are two rooms that are very priced in this hotel. The are located high and face a great view...

Comparing quality to prices for hotels is difficult in Rome, especially when there is
an event in the city just like when we were there last april.
We we happy to have found a (basic) three star Hotel for a four/five star price, but there was the vent with the former pope and it is Rome.
The hotel can be reached (coming from the center) by train, -bus and tram.
You have to take some stairs to get at the hotel, but not so many as other people seem to remember in there revieuws. Breakfast is decent and basic . Rooms are clean but need (in our case) some small repairs. Personell is very friendly and helpfull

The pictures are deceptive! The lobby has been upgraded but the rooms are the original 70's decore with the original carpets and mattresses. The room had soot all around the walls, we saw cockroaches, and had to switch 3 rooms before we got a working air conditioning system, which made the room tolerable but not cold.
The only saving aspect was the cordial staff which unfortnuately did not make up for the bad rooms.

Air conditioners in several rooms did not work. They moved our group from room to room several times, air conditioners all sucked. Area around hotel littered with beer bottles and hypodermic needles. Lobby is nice, rooms aren't.

If you really dislike someone, tell them to stay here.

If it were not for the stairs... I loved my stay here. Pamela and Steban were friendly and helpful when my purse was stolen at Trastevere train station. The room was tiny, but clean and with a comfy bed after long walks in the city. And breakfast was plentiful. The neighborhood is worth seeing. I'll never forget these days. Thank you again!

I stayed at Villa Rosa hotel for 10 days at the end of February 2011 with my working collegues, as we partecipated at Big Blu nautical fair at Rome fair, therefore we chose a hotel that was cheap enough for our company budget, as we got 3 doubles for single use for 48EUR/per room/per night, which was excellent for us.Breakfast included.
Luckily we had a GPS, so at least we made it to the hotel which is in a tiny street up to the Circovallazione Gianincolense and very close to Trastevere train station and also cable trains passed by there.
The staff at the reception was really handy.The double rooms were actually really tiny, but since were used as single, it was just enough.Rooms were cleaned daily which was great.Breakfast was regular, you could drink as many coffees as you wanted, eat as many croissants you wished.But after 10 days of same food we were a bit fed up. In the night the below main street was a bit noisy as there was an ambulance statoin up the street.Since we traveled with a van, we parked it in a guarded parking lot about 400mtr from the hotel on that main street...25 EUR at night, but at least we knew our vehicle was safe.
All in all Villa Rosa was a cozy choice for us, who had to travel to Rome fair every day (close to highway connections to Fiumicino) and not very far from city centre (about 15 min with bus, which costs 1 EUR single).
I would reccomend this hotel for a budget traveller, but if you're looking for luxury, don't go there.Last thing.If you wish to have wireless internet you need to pay for a password, which costs 5 EUR for 2 hours and 10 EUR for 5 hours, so think if you really need all that internet surfing.
