We booked our stay at late notice but it was still a good price. The hotel is a nice little place and the front of house staff were lovely - the one boy gave us in depth recommendations with regards to where to see and eat which was greatly appreciated. The hotel itself was okay. The wifi was not great and there was no air con - only a fan - which was a bit of a problem in 40 degree June heat. The location is slightly out but there's still plenty of places to eat around and easily accessible into the heart of Rome. Breakfast wasn't great - it was just a pastry and some coffee or tea, plus juice. We did need to ask for things like loo roll a lot so it would have been nice if these were given daily instead. Overall the stay was fine.
Rooms are quite basic - as one would expect for the price. A little effort by management would go a long way, however; it would hardly cost the earth, or be too much trouble to put electric kettles in the rooms. That said, the rooms were clean, towels and sheets were changed regularly and the staff were quite friendly. In a 'Fawlty-Towers sort of way, you are asked what you would like for breakfast; when you reply 'whats for breakfast?'', you are told 'tea, or coffee and a croissant' - the 'choice' is whether you would like a chocolate filled croissant or a plain one. Finally, do carry some mosquito repellant - the place seemed to offer free B&B for mosquitoes. Not bad otherwise!
We came to the hotel (hotel guest house guste) at 09.00 pm. wich was our originally stay. the hotels opening hours is to 22 pm. But the day we came, the receptionist got off at 08.00 pm. So i had to call. he got us a different hotel wich was like 8 minutes from our originally stay. "villa lanusei". crappy place. middle of nowhere. The hotel staff said to call the next day so they could take us to the hotel we originally paid for. but it was impossible to reach the owner. we called and sent msg. but the owner had an assistant. so he said we were going to stay where we was at. middle of nowhere and crappy place. 5 nights. Then we had to leave early sunday morning. I talked to the assistant about airport transfer. I said i neeeded transfer from 0430 am. So he said no problem. the owner is coming to get us that time and had a cost of 50 euro. wich we agreed on. but he never showed up. We had to stressed and we finally found a taxi in the middle of the night in the middle of nowhere. I called the owner. but didnt pick up. like usual. crappy stay. WILL NEVER STAY THERE AGAIN!
Affordable, cosy, great terrasse. The staff was very welcoming and super helpful and it felt very homely. It's in a great location, Via Taranto is quite busy and has a great gelateria. Lots of ways to get to the centre of Roma.
For someone would seem a little pricey, but it is located in a great location with good connections to the centre (bus no. 51), in addition, there is friendly staff. The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was a liitle poor.
Accommodation in a quiet part of the city of Roma. Staff nice and helpful. Breakfast every day simple: tea or coffee, juice, cake.The metro station to the center and to the Vatican in about 20 min on foot - station Re di Roma or S. Giovanni. Parking with car next to the house, which is a big plus.
We stayed here for 2 nights. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The bed was really comfortable and the rooms were clean. The location was good for such a low cost. Approx 20-25 mins walk to Colliseum, close to buses if you dont like walking. The area was neither good nor bad just average city. The only low point was the breakfast was not very filling but it was tasty and the juice was delish.
Very good report of quality and price specially when you travel by car. Quite and clean building with good and renewed furnishings accompained by simple italian breakfast. You can easily access the public transport that leads you in the center of Rome and near by Trevi Fountain.
I stayed in Villa Lanusei early in August for two nights. I chose this place specifically since I have friends and family living in that area in Rome. The B&B is located in a very tiny quiet street, quite difficult to be found though. I arrived very late in the night due to a delay with my flight, since I informed in advance the reception, one of the guys left the keys for my room in a safe place so I managed to get in, but I felt a bit left apart. My room was small but very clean. I had everything I need to stay for two nights. The real nightmare has been the mosquitoes. They were everywhere, there's no mosquito net on the windows so it's basically impossible to avoid them. I had 25 mosquitoes bites in one night. Breakfast is very poor and nothing is provided for people with food allergies. The guy at the reception is very nice and polite and he did his best to make my stay good, but I can't say I've been completely satisfied of my stay at this b&b.
Stayed over New Year's Eve for 3 nights in total. The hotel is only a 20 minute bus ride straight into the center of Rome and offers amazingly low prices for what is essentially a great place to put your head after a day of sightseeing. Everything is clean and the bed comfy. It is important to note this is not a luxury hotel, more of a B&B/upscale youth hostel type. Therefore don't expect anything and as we were, you will be amazed by the fantastic service and wonderful atmosphere. You really couldn't fault the staff at all - they were just so welcoming and kind. Note, bring your own shower liquids as none are offered - if you ask, they will give you some, however they are the tester packs you normally get in magazines. Really nice treat - on New Year's Eve, they gave us a HUGE Panettone and a bottle of fizz! When booking, if you like a lay in, make sure you ask for a room away from the breakfast area. The walls are a thick as rice paper, so you will be woken up by anyone in there and the coffee machine going. On that note, breakfast is a coffee and pastry. That is fine for most and to be honest, we ended up grabbing the beautifully made coffee then heading out to eat at one of the thousands of cafe's in Rome for breaky. Highly recommend to those that want an affordable alternative in a great easy location to get into Rome.
