“Best hotel experience, ever!”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

Our flight arrived early and we got to the hotel, thinking of just leaving our bags and walking around the city. We rang the bell, and immediately were warmly welcomed, given a room and shown around the place. The Villa is gorgeous, everything is authentic with pictures of the family around, gorgeous carpets on the parquet and marble floors, antiques.....

The staff is so friendly and helpful, every single person there was lovely and did all they could to make our trip perfect.
Usually in Italy we go to a bar for aperol spritz in the afternoon, here the most beautiful place to have it was in the salon. Every afternoon they put out prosecco and soda, in addition to all of the bar drinks that are there all the time. It rained so we didn't go out to the garden but it seems the perfect place to take your drink before dinner. Breakfast was lovely, delicious bread and cheeses, cereals, and made to order eggs or pancakes, and of course made to order cappucino, as you like it.

There were 2 fireplaces every evening and the Turkish bath was lovely. Everywhere you went you felt like you were wanted in this beautiful house which is now being shared with you.

The location was great, other than the airport, we walked everywhere in Rome, just a few minutes from the Trevi fountain, and everything else in walking distance.

An absolutely perfect experience. I have been in many hotels throughout the world and this is by far my favorite. Thank you all for the wonderful time.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are probably excellent, the bathroom had a fabulous tub and shower, the room had hi...

This villa was a single family home converted to a 13 room luxury accommodation. We stayed in two different rooms as we interrupted our 8 days in Rome with a one day excursion to Pompeii. First, and most important, the staff was fabulous in so many ways. They spoke perfect English, arranged numerous restaurant reservations, and made sure we never got lost on our walking tours of the city. Next, the location is very convenient to permit walking tours of the Vatican, Capitoline Museums, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, the Colosseum and the Forum. Every afternoon there is gratis reception in the main living room and library with tea, coffee and alcoholic beverages. Each of the rooms we stayed in was luxurious, with many amenities included. Finally, the breakfast buffet (also included in the room price) featured a wide variety of options. While expensive, the Villa Spalletti is worth every euro.

Room Tip: Although we didn't see them all, it is hard to imagine that there would even be one that is not...

My Wife and I have just returned from a 3 city tour of Italy and for 4 days we were lucky enough to stay here. The hotel really is all and more then we expected.
I do not usually write reviews but this is one of those Gems that need to be celebrated.
Did not use the Spa/Turkish bath so can not rate it but I am sure it would have been excellent.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms in the hotel

If you enjoy staying in chain hotels then this may not be for you. This is an incredibly unique property which is difficult to articulate in a review. The hotel is a renovated almost stately manner however has a very personal and unobtrusive style. The staff are very willing to accommodate the guests but in a very inconspicuous way. There was wine tasting and a happy hour each day for guests to meet and enjoy this wonderful property. Our room had a lovely view thanks to two very large sets of windows out to the beautiful street vista. Whilst it was considered one of the smaller rooms, the high ceilings and décor ensured that we did not feel short of space. The location makes access to the major sights and sounds of Rome very accessible if you enjoy walking - it is all there within minutes. We found all of the staff very helpful and professional however we found Franco very willing to go the extra and to recommend restaurants, local sites to see (very often off the normal tourist routes) and even a private tour guide – which was fantastic. Every day Franco had a great recommendation depending on our intentions for the day/evening. It was an absolute pleasure to stay here and very difficult for the next part of our onward journey to settle into a hotel that was less unique and well attended. On our next visit to Rome we would not consider staying anywhere else. This was an amazing start to our trip through Italy.

Room Tip: I doubt there is a bad one

A simply stunning hotel with unique charm similar to staying in a private residence like a miniature stately home.first class staff and very friendly.
Great location.
I usually like to always try somewhere different but when I return
To Rome it will be hard to say anywhere else but here.

This Villa was a splurge for a final couple of nights in Rome and it did not disappoint.
Per another guests comments, I would agree that that is a private house, not a 5 star hotel so if you need 'in your face' service this perhaps would not suit. But to enjoy the beautiful rooms in peace, for us, was a treat. The rooms were stunning, and the gardens (though small) were quiet, relaxing and quaint - a perfect spot for their complimentary evening drinks before dinner.
All the service was very smooth. The recommendations for restaurants were decent (their low end pizza joint was perhaps better than the dinner recommendation!).
My only disappointment was perhaps not staying longer to truly enjoy - we arrived late one PM, and had only one full day there departing very early 2 nights later. It would not be a mistake, given the location, to stay here for 3-4 nights. Lovely and very romantic.

Room Tip: We had a prestige deluxe room - it was lovely!

I read dozens of TripAdvisor reviews of the Villa (and other Rome hotels) before booking my stay there in December 2013, and I can confirm all of the raves.

To fully appreciate this gem, you need to understand in advance that it is more like a private home than a hotel (albeit a private home unlike any other I have stayed in). The hotel staff is unobtrusive in the extreme but appear in an instant when you need them. For example, you may have the breakfast room all to yourself (given the small number of guest rooms/suites), but you need only push a button to summon a server to take your cappuccino order. Likewise, the lovely and elegant library, living room and sitting room, with their comfortable furniture and crackling fires in the fireplaces, bear none of the hallmarks of hotel common areas, and you can lounge undisturbed in any of them or, alternatively, help yourself at the self-serve bar, or summon a server to bring you prosecco, champagne or wine. A small, discreet metal plaque by the front door is the only indication that the lovely building is a hotel, and you must ring the doorbell to be admitted. And don't go expecting any kind of hotel bar scene -- none exists.

The staff, while unobtrusive as I mentioned above, delivers superb and caring service, making each guest feel welcome and secure. They provided great restaurant recommendations and made reservations for me.

The hotel is located near the Palazzo Quirinale and other government buildings, and the immediate neighborhood is otherwise largely residential. But go just a few blocks in almost any direction, and you will find yourself in the heart of Rome's most famous sites -- the Fontana di Trevi, the via Veneto, piazza di Spagna, Patheon, Museo Nazionale Romana, Galleria Colonna, and Galleria Doria-Pamphilj are all a short walk away, and if you enjoy walking in Rome (and I do), there is really no need to take a taxi, bus or metro to reach anyplace in the Centro Storico. I only used public transport to go to the Vatican Museums/St. Peter's and to Trastevere.

My room on the "first" floor or piano nobile (i.e., second floor in the US) was lovely -- a high-ceilinged corner room with a huge bathroom. The neighborhood is quiet, and I slept incredibly well there.

I can only think of one suggestion for improvement (this doesn't even count as a complaint, because I absolutely ADORED the hotel): softer sheets on the beds would be nice. On the same visit to Rome, I spent one night at the Sofitel Villa Borghese, and the bedding there was noticeably more luxurious than the Villa Spalletti-Trivelli's.

The Villa S-T is very pricey, but if you have the means and won't miss having a restaurant and proper hotel bar, this place is worth the splurge. I hope to return!
