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.

"Nice hotel near Termini station...3 stars, not 4. "
Nice, clean hotel very close to the train station - a plus for me. Staff was helpful to a fault. The cocktail bar in the renovated lobby area was a pleasant place to grab a beer and grappa after a day around Rome and elsewhere. Biaggio and bar staff made me feel welcome and at home. When I return to Rome, I will stay here.
Easy access to Termini, the Metro, the touring bus (e.g. double-deckers), and a few museums.
Good breakfast. Warm croissants and freshly squeezed orange juice were my favorite.
The exterior appearance and the lobby made it hard to justify a 4-star rating.
It's a nice hotel but don't expect 4 star it is more akin to 3 star.
On our first night we were given an apartment but it's in a separate building to the hotel. No reception, and you have to walk through stairs and corridors shared by non hotel residents. Felt quite isolated/unsafe especially as it was our first night in a different city. Luckily after complaining, we were moved the next day to a room in the main hotel building this was so much better.
Hotel is about 10 minute walk from termini station and a lot of bus stops, supermarkets, restaurants and cafes are close by.
I can't say enough good things about this hotel. If you are traveling on a budget, this hotel is wonderful. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and they have the best pillows. The hotel staff are amazing and will help you with anything you need. They'll greet you with a smile and show you the city on a map to get you oriented with the area. We stayed for 6 total nights. The location is great, it's close to Termini Station - so finding a cab is a short walk. The street is very quiet and many restaurants and espresso bars are within walking distance. There is also a Metro stop right around the corner which makes traveling easier.
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.
