Hotel Villa Linneo

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The rooms are large and lovely, the setting quiet and pleasant. Massimo and Claudio offered caring and gracious service, calling cabs, arranging laundry... Breakfasts are lavish with sweets and fresh fruit. The location is in an upscale suburban neighborhood, so it's a bit of a walk to restaurants, cafes, gelato. There are bus and tram lines about 5 minutes walk.

The hotel is in an old villa in a quiet street in Rome's smart and leafy Parioli district. It's about a twenty minute pleasant walk through the Borghese Gardens to central Rome. Our room was spacious and quiet with an excellent modern bathroom, air conditioning and free wifi. Nice garden which you can use. Hotel management was exceptionally friendly and helpful, going out of their way to help us find a spot where we could park our car for free for the three days we were there, giving us a choice of rooms and good guidance on evening dining options. Breakfast was included - a typically Italian selection of rolls, jams, pastries, fruit juice, cereal and yoghurt. You sit at the same large table but there wasn't any expectation that you engage your fellow guests in conversation - unlike (horror) some British B&Bs we've stayed at.

Lovely hotel in Rome. You may need a short walk across the park of Villa Borghese to go to Rome centre but that was not a big hassle. Rome is beautiful and clean. Lovely staffs. Excellent and delicious breakfast. Surely the go if visit in the near future. Grazie.

When I go to Rome I always think to find out part of my home there . Hotel Linneo feel you confortable with a friendly approach based on reciprocal knowledge. Every space is not filled with something but decorate with something strictly related to an everall project . Nothing is left to change. From Brakfast to the bedroom forniture , from bathroom to coingierge from the external garden to professionalism of the owner and all the employee . I left home but i come back hone in Rome !

Lovely boutique hotel in the stunning Roman suburbs adjacent the Villa Borghese gardens, through which its a lovely 20 minute walk to the City centre. In the opposite direction it's a 40 minute walk to the Stadio Olympico The hotel is charming with attentive staff and lovely breakfasts, the room was spacious and unique in its decoration. Great artwork around the place too

This hotel is tucked down a side street near the Borghese Park and is quiet, pretty, and a terrific place to stay. The room was a good size, the bathroom was immaculate (with great shower) and the staff were super helpful and informative. Breakfast was delicious (we started to love cake for breakfast.......) & I would definitely stay here again. It is about 15 minutes walk to the nearest metro but only about 5 minutes to the tram outside the modern art gallery.

Hotel Villa Linneo was recommended to us by friends who had stayed there previously.. It did not disappoint. The location is ideal if you want to see Rome but escape the central crowds. Located just north of The Borghese Gardens, we were able to wind down during a peaceful stroll home. The rooms were lovely, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was great...beautifully presented and delicious. The gardens at the villa are perfect for some R & R when you're not struggling with tourist crowds of Central Rome. I would highly recommend this hotel for couples who wish to see Rome but want to escape the tourist chaos..

A bit north of most of the main attractions in Rome, but it is just north of Villa Borghese which is great! It's also definitely walkable to town (we did everyday we were there). Everything in this hotel is lovely. The man who met us at the front desk didn't speak much English but was very nice and we always managed to communicate what we had to with hand signals! The room was amazing, so clean and luxurious. The bathroom was spotless, shower was huge. The only complaint would be that there was a bit of a weird smell when you turned the shower on. However, not a big deal at all. The breakfast was delicious, a pretty decently sized buffet affair with fruit, cakes, pastries, biscuits, yoghurt, cereal etc. All in all a lovely experience, which for us was amplified even more by the fact that we'd been staying in a more budget hotel for the 1st 4 nights of our trip, and this one was a lot nicer!!

Stayed for over a week in Villa Linneo and if I ever return to Rome, I will definitely go back to this hotel again - no question about it. There isn't a single thing I could complain. Wonderful breakfast with fresh fruit and pastries, wonderful staff (everyone speaking good English), comfortable neat rooms. Wifi without troubles. Other guests quiet, well-behaved, everyone respecting each other's need for rest. The hotel is a bit far away from the main city center with the most sights, but you can get both busses and trams to the center. E.g., tram lines end up in the Colosseum or the Vatican. The public transport does, however, follow its own strange logic in Rome and it can be a bit frustrating to wait on the stops. A taxi ride from the Termini station area cost from 14 to 17 euros depending on the driver - two times out of three I had to show them the destination from a map. The positive side of the location is that you will wake up, not to the traffic, but to the birds chirping outside. Pure bliss!

I stayed one weekend in this hotel in April 2014..I know Rome very well and I have chosen that hotel to stay away from tourist crowds but yet close to my favorite villa Borghese. I definitely was happy with my choice as hotel room was huge, and with nice touch of design elements ( huge bath in a room :) ) - all was new and very clean. Breakfast was served to give it home feeling . Staff was very professional and friendly. Overall- loved the stay and certainly will try to stay there again on my next trip to Rome...
