Recent guest reviews
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...
Hotel Villa Linneo was the perfect antidote to trekking around Rome on a weekend break - enormous bath for soaking after a lots of walking, a friendly welcome, and a lovely quiet neighbourhood. Our room was huge, beautifully decorated, with big comfy beds and tall shuttered windows. It had a very boutique-y feel to it - a funky take on classic style - and in addition to the free-standing bath there was a big bathroom with a roomy shower. The breakfast was substantial, and the owners were happy to provide us with plates and cutlery for bread and cheese in our room when we arrived late and didn't want to go out again for dinner. Overall it was a lovely place to stay and I'd recommend it without reservation - just be aware it is quite a walk to the nearest metro stop.
Just back from a jam packed city break to Rome where the Villa Linneo gave us a home from home after the hustle and bustle of visiting Rome's many historic sites in high season. In summary Highlights - Quiet, peaceful, relaxing - comfortable bed and pillows - Spacious rooms, with excellent facilities - Friendly staff - Fantastic breakfast - quiet garden - excellent local restaurants - good bus service to centre Low lights - a strenuous walk back uphill from the city centre - similarly for the metro - limited English so getting advice & recommendations is limited Although a little way from the main centre it is a good 20 min walk through the Borghese park to the Spanish Steps or Flaminio metro. But the 52 bus is every 15mins & will take you to Barbolini metro in 10mins. From there you can walk or get a metro or bus to all the sites. Tram 3 &19 are also 5 mins walk. The hotel has only 9 rooms, and the staff are friendly and helpful. It helps to have Italian or French as English is limited but this was not much of a problem for us. The rooms are spacious and quiet & there is little or no road noise at night & no noise from neighbouring rooms. The bed was large and comfortable. Everything worked perfectly & the aircon is particularly quiet and efficient. The lounge/ dining room has comfy sofas and a big table for breakfast. The breakfast is amazing but don't expect bacon and eggs. This is Italian at its best. Great coffee any way you want it. Fresh baked bread rolls, pastries, croissants and cakes inc the lightest heavenly chocolate cake and apple pastry. Get down early whilst its still hot from the oven & you can get to the sites before the crowds. However there is charge for fresh orange juice which jarred a bit. In the evening Pagaroma restaurant offers spectacular fine dining Sardinian style at reasonable prices within 5 mins walk or for a more typical Italian family restaurant the Ambasciata d'Abruzzi is also a 10min stroll away. This is an affluent area with many embassies around so very safe to walk with lots of police/military visibility.
I stayed for 3 nights during a business trip, wanted a small "boutique" hotel rather than one of the ordinary business hotels I usually take, and found this one. The villa is very nice. They only have a few rooms to offer, but the rooms are spacious and decorated in an old-fashioned way. Breakfast is served on a large common table, for everyone to share. The service was very friendly, and the location was great for me. Very recommended!
