Villa Mangili
Ranked #566 of 1,267 Hotels in Rome
Reviewed 6 November 2013

I recently stayed at the hotel. We were a party of 4, 2 couples. We had booked it as a surprise for my sister's 60th birthday.

When we arrived we had a wonderful greeting from the manager. He gave us our keys and we checked in. The rooms were very nice and had everything in we needed.

We went to the terrace and had a drink, nothing was to much trouble!

It is about a 10 minute walk but your are then in the centre, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps etc.

Breakfast is in the room to the side of reception. At first it seemed odd to be sitting at a table with strangers, but soon got use to it.

The breakfast was an Italian breakfast, delicious fresh fruit, croissants, rolls, any tea or coffee, there were so many choices, just ask for anything you want and they have it!

We sent some time talking to the Manager, he was very pleasant and informative.

There is a wonderful little beer shop around the corner. You pick what you want and just sit inside/outside talking to them. There was a wonderful restaurant across the road with the best food in Rome.

We are visiting Rome again next year with friends and will definitely be staying here again!!

we have been to Rome before and so have our friends. Our experience of the other hotels had put us off re visiting Rome, not anymore now we have found Villa Mangili!

Depending on what you're looking for, the location is either good or bad. Struggled whether to give this a 3 or 4 star review for a couple of reasons.
--Not convenient to anything. It's a 10 minute walk to get to any shops/restaurants/metro/etc. Not the end of the world, but if you're in Rome for a short period of time, it makes a difference. To get to Termini, it's a 15 minute walk to the metro station, and another bit on the metro. Total about 35 minutes. Walking, it's at least 45 minutes.
--The place itself is really nice. They have an outdoor terrace; we ended the night with a bottle of wine out there.
--We had 2 incidents in the room. The first blew out our USB charger/cord; fried them both, and presumably tripped a breaker in the room. The power was back on when we returned a few hours later.
--Second was water pouring out of the overhead light fixture in the bathroom. I mean, pouring. Water + electricity = a bit disconcerting. Front desk said nothing could be done till the next day. It eventually stopped. I'm guessing there was a leak in the shower or something on the floor above, which is why it stopped.

Like I said, I could easily give 3 stars but for the people at the front desk were very nice, and if you're looking for a quiet location it's great. And for 40 euros, we could have taken a cab in if we wanted and still come out ahead price-wise.

With 12 rooms in total, Villa Mangili is a small but excellent hotel. We (2 adults + 1 child) stayed 4 nights and we really enjoyed the calm and nice ambience after an exhausting day around Rome. And we had the luck to get the only room (triple room) with direct access to a private garden. The room was clean, comfortable and in good condition - safe, TV, alarm, ... . The staff was very extreme friendly and absolute helpful - everybody was highly service-oriented. Car parking is possible along the street in front of the hotel for a reasonable price. The park Villa Borghese is just a 5 minutes walk and also the centre can be reached on foot or a short bus trip. There are some good restaurants in this area for a delicious dinner with much better price and quality compared to Downtown. The typical Italian breakfast was a great starter for the day ... served with fresh fruits, home-made jams and home-made cakes. The only criticism is the small breakfast room in terms of the number of tables which could lead to a waiting time until others finish. For sure we will come back when we visit Rome again.

Located just to the north of Borghese Gardens, its about a 20 minute walk to the Spanish Steps, or there's a tram stop and taxi rank nearby. The hotel is in a quiet leafy street and nice to retreat to after a busy day sightseeing. The rooms are relatively basic but the decor is impressive. The staff are almost all exceptional, and are equally happy to spend time recommending local restaurants or troubleshooting wifi access. Breakfast had the potential to be really good but it is served in the reception room and there are only two tables (8 covers) so it gets congested. Worse than that, on one morning they ran out of food and asked us to leave the table before we had finished as other people were waiting for breakfast! That took the edge off an otherwise enjoyable stay and we'd be unlikely to return as a result.

We stayed here for 3 nights after travelling around tuscany for 2 weeks. The hotel is beautiful and rooms were a good size compared to most we've stayed in in big cities. Breakfast was lovely-lots of fresh fruit, the only criticism would be that you have to pay extra for juice, if not you just get water or coffee. There is a beautiful restaurant (Gli Ulivi) a couple of minutes walk from the hotel which we went to as recommended by another traveller.. try it its wonderful!! There are also a few nice bars near as well if you don't want to travel into Rome centre for dinner and drinks. Just to note the hotel is at the top of a hill, not too much of a problem as transport is available but if you wanted to walk back to the hotel then just be aware.

I booked the Villa Mangili for its location in relation to the Parco Della Musica (15mins walk), good reviews and fair price. I pretty much loved everything about the hotel, the size of the room (palacial compared to my poor colleagues' rooms who were staying in town), the breakfast, the building and garden, the security, the breakfast and the friendliness of the staff. Villa Mangili is an excellent home away from home and if I was in Rome again for business or pleasure I would certainly stay again. There is also an excellent restaurant nearby, Gli Ulivi, where I had the best Italian food I have ever tasted!

You get in and... the sensation, unintentionally given to the traveler, is that he never left home. Among a thousand colors you'll find corners where sobriety, far to be austerity, simulates reflection moments to be spent either within your private room or in the garden with a cup of tea. Close to the auditorium, just behind villa borghese, from the strategic set of this hotel, of only 12 rooms, you can shortly reach downtown, even walking. Business & love melt into each other without crashing. you get out and... ... more   less
