“Dont Stay Here”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

The lobby was nice but that was it. The bed was small.Room was smaller. Internet was none exsistent. Dont think most people could get into the shower. The ceiling was false so you could here everything that you did not want to here from the guess next door

Room Tip: Dont stay here

The hotel is well located close to Termini and very close to Castro pretorio metro station. I've had before terrible experiences from Termini hotels so comparing this with them is really an oasis. Now the room we got was clean and modern although we didn't have any view. The price is depended on which season you visit Rome(we went on spring and the price was cheaper).The personel was ok and the breakfast was excellent.I wish it had quadrable-family rooms though. Anyway if i'll go again in Rome and want a double or triple room I would definetely stay there again.

good hotel, very close to metro. Reception staff very friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was fine, everything you needed, does get crowded though. Lots of restaurants in the vicinity. We were spoilt for choice. Hotel has a nice bar area. We used the metro a lot, Only one euro, how good is that. We had no problem with pickpockets, but all our money was well protected. I know people do have problems. The rooms are fine, slightly small and slightly dark, but since we only used them to sleep, which we did very well, everything was fine.

I had sent off an email to the hotel prior to arrival simply asking them to try to consider a few requests for our stay with them. Much to our delight they had read it and I'm happy to report they were able to meet our needs. We were traveling with another couple and they gave us two non smoking rooms next to each on the second floor. Our room #218 was a corner room just a little larger than our friends next door. You know rooms in Europe are very small. The free Wi Fi worked in both rooms, and the rooms we had were quiet. Some of their rooms face the street and many have written they aren't as quiet. The front desk helped us in so many ways and a special thanks to M.Sylvia Piras who helped us when we checked in with all our requests. If you have a need when staying at Villafranca simply ask and they will do all they can to help. The breakfast was lovely and plentiful. I think you will enjoy your visit here and I know you will enjoy Rome. We traveled on a Delta Vacation plan and simply had to pay at check out the city tax fee.

Room Tip: Ask for room #218. Or ask for a room not facing the street if bothered by noise. Our towels and was...

The Hotel Villafranca is ok. It is close to Termini staion and the Metro station. However I would not recommend riding the Metro as we were pickpocketed TWICE. Made for a very expensive trip. Take a taxi.
The a/c in our first room did not work. We were moved to a second room on the 6th floor which was much nice and the a/c worked great. The breakfast buffet is very nice. The staff was helpful for the most part. More like a 3 star than a 4 star.

Room Tip: 6th floor in back of hotel seem to be better.
