We loved our stay here. We occupied the gold room and the single room. The gold room looks out to the front/side of the villa, a beautiful aspect from the bed and good for watching the world go by. Yes, it can be noisy with the sound of cars and bikes accelerating up the hill and the tall buildings bounce the sound into the room, but really, close the windows at night, turn the air con on and sleep well. The hostess, Laura, is friendly and gracious. She even introduced me to her cat when I expressed that I missed my cat and children (sorry for the tears, Laura). The guard dog added a layer of security, knowing when someone entered the property that he didn't know- he didn't bark otherwise.
A word on the location. It is on a hill above Trastevere, so be ready for either a long circuitous walk down to the town centre, or a quick trip down lots of stairs- that you have to walk back up again. Good for the legs and butt! The 75 bus is a stones throw from the villa and takes you straight to the Colloseum and Forum, and also Termini. And it saves a walk up the road/stairs!
I will be telling my friends about Villa Urbani, we will be back, one day..
