An oasis of romantic calm in a bustling city. If you wish to stay in a little hotel that is far from the madding crowd of Rome, yet still be within a stone’s throw away from some of the eternal city’s great landmarks - such as the Coliseum and Circus Maximus - then the Hotel Villa San Pio could be the place for you. Situated on the Aventino hill, an elegant residential areas and an oasis of calm right in one of Europe’s most exciting cities, it has all the elements for an excellent stay, especially if you like rococo type decoration, much of it hand painted and gardens in which to wander and relax.
The complex that makes up the Villa San Pio (it started off life as three separate villas) is light and airy and rooms, though not particularly on the large side are elegantly furnished. The marble bathrooms even come a whirlpool to further add to the romantic feel – honeymooners you have been warned! Another plus point of this little hotel is the interesting location - authentically Roman and not subject to the pressures of mass tourism as in some other parts of the city.
As an extra reason to get away, if you stay seven nights the next is offered free-of-charge courtesy of the hotel.
We enjoyed very much staying at Villa San Pio. The location on the hill Aventin was great, there are lovely restaurants at the Testaccio area (max. 10 min. on foot) and also the hotel restaurant was very good and the food lovely. All staff was extremely friendly. The wonderful garden was a big plus and the area quiet. We walked to all the sights. The famous "keyhole' and the Orange Garden with its great city view are around the corner. We highly recommend this hotel.

Very nice hotel, located in a quiet area close to attractions like the Forum Romanum and Colosseum. Clean and comfortable rooms, free mobile phone to take along.
A great stay

We spent 5 nights at the Hotel Villa San Pio. We had a very nice room and the breakfast location in the garden is absolutely delightful. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The location is ideal for exploring Rome - within easy walking distance of the Colosseum and the Forum and yet in a quiet street. Highly recommended.

Enjoyed our overnight in hotel villa san pick. Nice location away from the hustle bustle of Rome. Friendly helpful staff, good breakfast room was clean and roomy enough. They set up our pickup for transport to the airport and it ran smoothly. We would stay there again if the chance should arrive.

Rom im Winter

Wir waren für drei Tage in Rom zum 18. Geburtstag unserer Tochter. Das Hotel ist ideal gelegen - ruhig und doch zentral (10 min zu Fuß zum Colosseum).
Die Zimmer sind sehr ansprechend und typisch italienisch eingerichtet, das Personal ist sehr hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend.
Unser Lieblingsplatz war der wunderschöne Wintergarten, in dem man frühstücken konnte. Das Frühstück war nicht außergewöhnlich, aber gut.
Einzige Schwachstelle ist m. E. die Bar, an der man am Abend etwas trinken kann - geringe Auswahl und leichte Überforderung der Bedienung.

Toller, zuvorkommender, immer hilfsbereiter Service zu erschwinglichen Preisen.
Ein Frühstück, das sich so nennen darf, Top-Lage: zentral und ruhig.
Einziges Manko: die Wände sind so wenig isoliert, dass die Klima-Heizung die ganze Nacht laufen musste, ansonsten wurde es eisig kalt im Zimmer.

Hi - this was a really nice property, lovely spacious rooms and lovely garden. I found that the service wasn't quite as good as I would expect - as staff seemed rather rude on check-in, and simply slapped our key down on the counter. Not sure if is normal that guests locate their own room, but we were told to take the elevator to the 4th floor and were left to our own devices.
