This is the second time my family has stayed at Villa Magnolia. We stay at the villa as it provides a quiet, calm retreat from the hustle and bustle of Rome. The rooms are beautifully decorated and access to the garden is a delight. Raffaella could not be a more welcoming and attentive host and Nadia looked after us all...

We enjoyed a peaceful stay at this hidden gem located a short walk from the Vatican and Villa Doria Pamphili Park. Rafaella and Nadia made us feel so very welcome. Cappuccinos greeted us each morning along with some very charming Golden Retrievers. The experience kept us grounded as we headed out on our daily adventures.

The rooms are straight forward and have all you need. WiFi was not working while we were here. This needs to be looked at. But the staff were friendly and helpful, loved our time here. Would love to come back. Beautiful gardens and facilities. Breakfast was great, very homely feel... Nice restaurant down the hill, I San Pietrini - no...

What a wonderful place Villa Magnolia is. It's hidden-away up a hill behind the Vatican, within easy reach of the city, but entirely peaceful. The staff are so helpful, and the owner is a delight. Six of us stayed for two nights on a business trip, but I would definitely return here next time for a holiday to explore Rome...

We loved staying at the Villa Magnolia Relais! There were a number of reasons: 1) The owner/staff are amazing. We were instantly asked if we would like a coffee/drink when we arrived. This wasn't a gimmick - they will really try to help make your stay the best it can be. They also organised taxis for us, and gave us...

A wonderful place where time having no power...Well..You must keep your phone turn off. Raffaela is the most charming Italian meeting in Rome. After you're walking on crowded "PIAZZA" and "VIA" and staying and stare at the buildings and another stones, the return to Magnolia is a blessing. In Rome I recommend the park around castle S.Angelo.When the wind's coming...

We stayed for 6 nights at this place over a month ago. Since we had 3 young kids we booked a 2 bedroom apartment which was a big advantage for us. The location of Villa Magnolia is ideal as it is about 10 mins walk to the Vatican and then on the other side you can walk to Trastevere (20...

We chose this place after reading all the great comments on Tripadvisor, especially regarding the location near the Trastevere night life. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a very friendly but suprised lady. She wasn't expecting us, despite our reservation and payment well before. So we had to wait a bit while she contacted the owner Rafaella to get confirmation...

Celebrating our 5th year as a married couple we had to Rome, our favorite city. Last summer we stayed at Magnolia Relais and we loved it. Its even better the second time, now we must come back next year! Just around the corner you have to visit: Lo Scarpone and Bar Gianicolo!

Raffaella and Sante were so welcoming and helpful. The accommodation was beautiful and breakfast was wonderful. Looking back, we loved being able to walk down Via Delle Fornacia to Saint Peters. Close enough to the city to be convenient but also far enough away to feel as if we were living in another world. Loved the rabbits.
