My second time in this hotel. Both great experiences overall. The rooms are immaculate and so the sheets and towels. The attitude of all the staff is remarkable good. The facilities and rooms are tight as it is usual in a city like Rome, but good enough to rest and shower after a busy day. TV is OK, windows are great. They put some soft drinks and water for free in the minibar. Good safe box. Very quite street. The breakfast is not so assorted, but good enough to start the day. I left at early hours and they gave me a courtesy breakfast box. At the end of my stay, I was satisfied, considering what I paid for what I received, specially under the European standards. If I get back to Rome, definitively I will stay here again. If you look for a lot of luxury and sophistication, there are other places, if you are willing to pay an affordable price for a comfortable, convenient and clean stay, this is it.
My husband and I, at a ridiculous bargain price (because we were traveling in late January), found a gem here. Tucked away in the midst of a mundane residential neighborhood, we found the Villa San Lorenzo and for a moment thought we had mistakenly transported ourselves to the Riviera. A beautiful first impression carried through to a beautiful room -- with a terrace larger than the room! The service was wonderful, the staff friendly and helpful, the Continental breakfast fully satisfactory. And, I mean, Corinne Bailey Ray as ambient music in the lobby? They won me, totally.

This is a great hotel, just about four blocks from the Train Station and you are very safe. The hotel has a shower and not a bathtub, but it is modern and very clean and newer decor in the part that I stayed in (which had a separate entrance next to the main hotel, it was great)! The staff was very helpful and I would return to this location in the future and it is an easy walk. I was pleasantly surprised after booking this hotel last minute how great it was! Great Breakfast too!
Very close to train station. A fair bit of street noise, so bring your ear plugs if a light sleeper. Very clean room, nice breakfast and hospitable hotel staff. Very convenient for a walking tour base in Rome.
Rome’s central train station, Termini is the entry point to the city from Fiumicino Airport, and is an impressive modern architectural sight. Between here and glamorous Via Veneto, there are several interesting places to visit. The Palazzo Barberini is a superb baroque palace, the Terme di Diocleziano was the city’s largest bath complex and the Church of Santa Maria della Concezione is remarkable for its Capuchin monks’ crypt.
