Villa Rome B&B
Ranked #2,593 of 3,734 Rome B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 April 2013

We stayed here for three nights whilst working on a schools theatre tour of Italy. I can’t recommend it highly enough. We were greeted by the couple who own the place (and live above) and the welcome was warm and genuine and lovely. We were three people in a massive room which had two doubles, a queen size and a single bed in it. And our own fridge :) All the beds were on different levels, in a great way that made it feel like you all had your own space. Its really nice done and well decorated. There was a lovely big breakfast room and a great help yourself breakfast everyday. There is also a well equipped kitchen for you to use if you want to cook in the evening as we did. There is a swimming pool! Not a massive one but big enough, and perfect to cool off in. We swam a bit and lazed on the grass beside it. There’s also space to eat lunch outside. It’s a bit of a sun trap. Whenever we saw them the owners were really friendly and helpful. The place is only about 5 stops on the train from the Vatican and is connected by transport all night. We went in to town for a late night and missed the last train back but luckily we had the sheet of travel information that the hostess had given us. It had all the details on how to get home at anytime and we caught a night bus really easily. Thank you. Its incredible to be that close to the centre with all those facilities and the ability to cook for yourself in the evening and feel at home and have a pool, all for that price. Great place, lovely people.

Room Tip: We only saw one room and it was ours but it was lovely. A massive room for 3 or more people.

Three friends and I spent a weekend at the Villa Rome in early May. We turned up late on Friday evening but this wasn't a problem. Isabella gave us a warm welcome and showed us to our room. We were hungry, and took Isabella's recommendations on where to eat. There are two restaurants two minutes' walk away, on the other side of the station, and we decided to check them out. We ate in the nearer one to the villa and enjoyed a fantastic meal. The food and wine were delicious, and the atmosphere and service were great.

We stayed in the four-bed room at the back of the villa. It was fresh and clean and plenty big enough. The beds were comfy and a good size, and the bathroom was well-kept, with a reliable shower. The room had a heavy set of shutter-doors, providing good security. The next morning, we found a hearty buffet breakfast laid out in the dining area. There was lots of choice, and we filled ourselves up for the day. There were also kitchen facilities, allowing us to make tea and coffee during the day. In the back yard there is a pool/tub, but it was too cold that weekend to try it out!

Before heading out, we received advice from Isabella on places to visit and where to buy train tickets (a newsagent close to the station), and she booked a taxi for us. We couldn't have asked for a more hospitable host! We left on Monday morning very happy travellers. We had slept well, been fed, and had a great time, all for an unbelievably low cost.

It takes about 45 minutes on the train to get into Rome, or about 15-20 minutes by taxi. This was not a problem for us, as the journey allowed us to see more of Rome. The station is a stone's throw from the villa.

Would come back again!

I spent the final four days of my trip here and loved it. Having spent the majority of my two month trip in hostels and hotels it was great to have a low key comfortable lodging like this for a change. The owners are amazingly friendly and made us a gourmet meal one of the nights. A little out of the way but only a couple minute walk from the train. Highly recommend!

Isabella was great host, very friendly and helpful, the house has a very nice garden with a small pool, the lounge was excellent, breakfast normal, the problem was that our room had a door not in use connecting to the main house so we could hear every single noise coming from there, the three nights we stayed there had to knock on the door for the young teenager to quiet down at sleeping times (1:00 2:00 AM). The other thing is that you rely on public transportation (40 minutes on train to city center)

This was a wonderful place to stay, probably my favorite hostel/B&B of my whole trip (4 week trip in Europe). It was very close to the train into Rome, so perfectly convenient to get anywhere I wanted to go. Kind of in the suburbs, so quiet and relaxing, but also easy for sight-seeing. The room was simple, very clean, and cozy... great air conditioning and a TV. A lovely breakfast each morning with a pretty backyard/porch area with a pool, very relaxing. On my last day of the trip, the public transportation was on strike, so I needed to grab a cab last minute to the airport... they kindly arranged a cab for me, which just made everything even easier. I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone I knew who was going to Rome for a trip, regardless of budget (even though this is a very inexpensive place to stay... it's just that nice!).

We were received with great hospitality by Isabella and Paolo at the Villa Rome in July 2012, where we stayed two nights with our family of 5 persons to visit Rome. Isabella speaks English quite well, which is quite nice as our command of the Italian language was not very good.

The furnishing of the room was simple but adequate and the B&B radiated a homely atmosphere. Same held for the breakfast room, which had a nice opening to the garden behind the house.
The B&B is situated in a neighborhood that is quite crowded, but although there is little space to park a car on the road, Paolo gave us access to a special parking place behind a (locked) gate.

The train and bus station is really nearby and the connection to the centre is good.
We had a great stay in Rome and in the Villa Rome B&B.
