I stayed at Villa Laetitia with friends in May and it was superb. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the rooms were brilliant. It was great to have the fridge and the small kitchen facilities. We found a supermarket in the basement of Coin department store on Via Cola di Rienzo, 4 streets south of Lepanto metro station.There is also a fab cafe/ gelateria on Piazza Cola di Rienzo called Portofino where we had the best chocolate ice cream of the whole stay. They also do great Campari spritzers and have free bar snacks in the evening. 'Cafe Mary' on Via Guiseppe Avezzana round the corner from the hotel was great and very popular with the locals. This is a fantastic area of Rome, not at all touristy but very easy to get to the central area and close to the Lepanto metro station.

Villa Laetitia is a beautiful hotel set back from a busy street. It is a bit tricky to find, but once my husband and I got all checked in, we were extremely pleased with our room. They were kind enough to upgrade us from a superior room to a senior suite (the Round room), and we could not have been happier with our suite. It was absolutely gorgeous - a home away from home. After settling into our room, we awoke the next morning to begin sightseeing. It's about a 10 to 15 minute walk to the nearest metro station. Once you get on the metro it's a fairly quick ride to anywhere you want to go. Now, at first glance, this may not seem like much of an inconvenience, and for some, it may not be. But we found that we were much less likely to take those much needed small breaks in the afternoon at the hotel because of its distance from most of the major sites. Instead, we found ourselves feeling that once we were out and about, we were out to stay, which meant that by the time we headed back to the hotel, we were exhausted, and what seemed like a short walk in the morning seemed very long after a long day of sightseeing. That being said, the neighborhood is adorable, and the accommodations are fantastic, so you have to choose for yourself as to how important it is to have easy access to the main attractions, but it's definitely something to take into consideration, and we found it to be the only drawback of the hotel. The staff is extremely helpful. Ava's dinner recommendations were perfect. We never would have found the places she suggested, but after eating there, we wouldn't have chosen to eat anywhere else. All in all, this was a fabulous experience. One final word, we came back to Villa Laetitia for one night before we flew back home, and we stayed in the Hoffman Room. Definitely pay the money and splurge for a suite. It is absolutely worth it.

We stayed in the Garden Suite for 4 nights in March for a long weekend in Rome and had an absolutely wonderful time. Plans to get out and about early in Rome fell by the wayside when faced with the option of lounging in the morning sunshine on our private terrace having breakfast (which frequently turned into lunch before we managed to get moving). The Villa Laetitia has inspired us to completely change our hotel selections for all future city breaks, having the private terrace and tiny kitchen made the holiday feel like a relaxing villa holiday as well as a glamorous city break.

The building and the grounds are beautiful and completely private. The hotel is wonderfully quiet given how close you are to the city centre and you are only a five minute walk from the nearest metro stop which is very cheap, frequent and efficient. The staff were wonderfully helpful, everything from advising on transport to getting reservations in local (fully booked) restaurants at short notice. We can't wait to go back.

The taxi dropped us off at the hotel at about 6 pm, and I immediately worried that I had screwed up in my choice. We couldn't see the hotel. We could see only a big gate that we couldn't see through. After a couple of minutes, we figured out to push a buzzer, and the gates swung inward. Still, I didn't feel much better because we then had to drag our luggage through a driveway filled with pebbles.

The payoff came a minute later when we came upon the hotel in the back. The friendly clerk at the counter directed us to our room. It was cozy but nicely designed. We learned that each of the rooms had been designed differently.

The Villa Laetitia did not look like your normal hotel. It is hidden behind an old-fashioned villa. But the uniqueness provides much of the charm.

We liked the location. The hotel is located on an street that winds alongside the Tiber River. You can't actually see the river because of shrubbery where the hotel is situated. But you can walk in either direction, get clear of the shrubbery and cross the river. The hotel is also near a neat cafe where we ate breakfast and a restaurant where we ate tasty pasta. The hotel was not close to any of the main tourist spots. But that was ok since it gave us the chance to explore on foot.

We stayed at Villa Laetitia in late September 2008. We found it a little difficult to find at first as, because it is a private villa, there are no big signs out the front and is easy to miss. Once located, a little trouble getting buzzed in which was abit off putting seeing we had just arrived in Rome and were feeling displaced anyway. However, once these issues were sorted, we found the staff friendly and willing to please. We stayed in the Garden Room which was lovely, however, no real place to sit comfortably besides the bed. There was a wrought iron bench seat and a wrought iron chaise lounge, but without cushioning, not very comfortable. The Garden Room had direct access onto the shared garden terrace which was lovely. I found the kitchen very basic and lacking in a range of utensils...I wasn't expecting every type of gadget, but basic things...eg. tongs, veg peeler, were missing and lots of improvising had to be done...I think this could be improved on. It was a 10-15 minute walk to the nearest metro, Lepanto, which we enjoyed, and a supermarket between the metro and the Villa where you could buy pretty much anything you need. If you want to stay somewhere "in the action', this is not the place, however a good place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city where you can relax and unwind. We found the room very clean and it was serviced every day. Relatively good value for money and would consider staying here again.
