As busy as Rome traffic is, it was nice to be close to things, but not in all the hustle and bustle. The hotel staff was very friendly, spoke wonderful English, had good suggestions and hints. The breakfast which was included was quite extensive and varied slightly from day to day. We enjoyed a queen bed and had air conditioning in our quiet room. We arrived here about 10:30 am and even though check in isn’t until 3pm, they were able to give us a room by 11:30! An enjoyable stay. Collapse

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for three nights recently. While not in a great part of the city, it is convenient to the subway and a quick cab ride to many attractions. Villafranca could benefit from a good handyman to touch things up but otherwise a perfectly acceptable place to stay. The breakfast was good and there were a sufficient number of restaurants within a block or two. We used this hotel to catch up from jet lag before moving on and it served this purpose well. Also, the staff was very helpful. Collapse
ROME-WET AND WINDY

The hotel was hard to find unless you stood under the sign. Staff very pleasant at the reception. Room was average, mall and dark. Road works going on outside from 6.30 and could hear the people in the net room.

This hotel is my number one choice when coming to Rome. Although sometimes it may be booked it is worth getting into if you can. Staff are super friendly and very helpful with information and directions. Breakfast in the mornings a good way to start your day, with combination of pastries hot foods and cereals with the juices and coffee's, plus typical Euro breakfast items. Great location and easy access to Metro via blue line or transfer to Red line at Termini (or close enough to walk to/from termini). Lots of good restaurants around the area as well as shopping in much to see. Collapse

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Villafranca on a recent trip to Rome in March 2018. Overall, our stay was very good. The room was easy to get to with elevator access to all floors. The bathroom was very large, with a fullsize bathtub in it. Everything was very clean, organized, and easy to use. The room was in very good shape; only the telephone looked like it could use an update. There was a small refrigerator that we used frequently to keep cold foods and drinks in to snack on (keep drinks under one liter to fit), the bed was comfortable, and the heater worked fine. The television worked good, though some of the channels didn't come in very well. The lounge area was very clean and neat, and most of the front desk staff were very helpful, polite, and spoke decent American. We saw four different people at the front desk over our five days there; one, and older gentleman, was somewhat rude, but the other three were excellent (a younger man, a woman, and a man whose accent sounded Pakistani or Indian). On what was to be our last day in Rome before heading to Pompeii in a rental car, my wallet with my driver's license was stolen in an extremely packed subway between Colosseo and Termini stations (we got on at Pyramide station). Unable to rent the car to drive to Pompeii, we talked with the hotel staff and they were able to let us stay in our same room for a very fair price for the extra night. They also provided easy-to-read maps of downtown Rome to find everything; we used this to its' fullest extent, though I do recommend bringing a compass to assist as the street markings aren't always easily visible. The breakfast was a continental breakfast and was very good. The food was from the Pam store around the corner, but that's not a bad thing. It tasted fairly fresh and was of decent quality in my opinion, plus plenty of variety. They had fresh juices, lots of pastries, eggs, bacon, breads, meats and cheeses, yogurt, and the like. The hotel is located in a good part of Rome. We didn't feel unsafe walking around the streets in that area, and there are several good restaurants nearby, including pizzerias, the aforementioned Pam grocery store, and restaurants. There is also a parking garage only a few blocks away as well. The hotel has no on-site parking, just street parking, and it is right on the edge of the no-autos ZTL zone of Rome, so you won't get a fine for driving your car to the hotel. If you plan on going through Rome using public transportation as we did, Termini Station is only a few blocks away. It took us only about 15-20 minutes to walk there from the hotel, and it's almost a straight shot from the corner. If you plan on sleeping in, make sure to shut your windows at night. The area is quiet most of the night, but the noise increases greatly just before dawn with people setting up shop and accepting deliveries. Overall, the hotel was excellent. Our one downside with it was the mildly rude person behind the counter, but the other three made up for him. Collapse
