My boyfriend and I just returned from a trip to Italy and Rome was our first stop. We decided to stay at Hotel Villa Duse and we were very happy with the decision. The room was incredibly comfortable, the facilities were great and the staff were so helpful with cabs and dinner reservations. It's a bit outside of the city centre but there are some nice spots to be found on Via Parioli which is just a 3 minute walk away. Next time we go back to Rome this will be our spot!

Excellent choice of a hotel. All points of service were right on. The concierge was extremely helpful and friendly and the rooms were spacious, decorated tastefully and comfortable. The bathroom towels were frette and added a sense of luxury. It is not located in the heart of the city, but I enjoyed the quiet neighborhood after exploring Rome. However, it is a short bus ride to get the heart and never found the commute an inconvenience. I would highly recommend this hotel for travelers who enjoy luxury and five star service without the price!

Yes, it is an oasis in the busy-ness of the city. Yes, it is in a beautiful neighborhood. Yes, it is far from the attractions. We had three rooms for a family trip to Rome: the tower room, the red suite, and a ground-room floor. After being in hot crowds for days, we were treated like rock stars. The HUGE patios allow you to have drinks and watch the stars. Great patio service and breakfast. Do not stay anywhere else if you want quiet, peace, and living la dolce vita!!!

Hotel Villa Duse is a high quality hotel outside the city centre. We stayed in the tower lodge room on the top floor, which was simply excellent. On the last morning we had breakfast on the terrace, and we wished we had ordered that every morning. The staff were both super helpful and knowledgeable. Its easy to reach the city by either walking through the park "Villa Borghese" or getting the bus/tram. Awesome stay, thank you very much.

It is a small hotel in a residential, leafy neighbourhood. Rooms are spacious, albeit not large. It has all amenities, like mini bar etc. There is no restaurant.

The hotel has a nice small garden with sofas to relax.

The breakfast is ok (for Italian standards).

In general staff is very friendly, and always willing to help.

Disdavantage is the location to get into ROme city centre, but taxis are not too expensive.

I've stayed in Rome 3 times previously. We chose this hotel because of its proximity to the Olympic Stadium and the good reviews. Everything previously said is true. It's in a pretty wealthy suburb of Rome. Quiet leafy streets surround with the odd local restaurant, bar and pizzeria. A 10 minute walk to Viale dei Parioli will find you many quality restaurants. If you want to stay in the middle of bustling streets, there are plenty of other hotels in the centre. The beauty of Villa Duse is the peace and quiet.

However, assuming that you want to go into the centre of Rome, it is either a 12 Euro cab fare, or a 45 minute walk (most of which is through the beautiful Villa Borghese gardens). We took a cab down to the Travastere which was only 17 euros, so you can get to pretty much the far south side of Rome for less than 20 euros.

We had the tower suite and found the room well appointed with its own little terrace. Not amazing views, but you do get your own place to lounge and drink G&T in the sun.

The service was fantastic as all the reception staff speak excellent English and can help you with most queries. They also offer a limo airport transfer for a set 60 euros, but a taxi would be slightly cheaper. Depends if you want a Mercedes Benz and a smartly dressed driver!

Breakfast was the usual underwhelming continental affair, but as usual in Italy, great coffee.

We concluded that to get a hotel of this quality in central Rome would easily cost more than the additional daily taxi fares, and you get to escape the tourist madness.

Enjoyed a weekend in Rome at Hotel Villa Duse and would return and also recommend.
Welcoming and helpful staff, ample sized rooms which are very clean, well appointed and peaceful location.
Beds are comfy, extra pillows available if required. Room temperature is also very comfortable.
