Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Glori Hotel Rome
Loved this hotel
Wonderful hotel in a great location - Just returned from long weekend at Villa Glori. The room was immaculately clean and I would agree with an earlier review more 4* than 3*. One bonus of the hotel is that they would deliver breakfast to your room at any time until 10.30am - which for us was a real win as we never seem to make breakfast anywhere we stay. This set us up nicely for a full day sightseeing . The hotel was perfectly situated as it is located on a very nice quiet area but only 400yards from #2 tram which delivered you to either the metro station or if you prefer - walking distance of most major attractions.
From the Piazza Popolo (no 2 tram stops there) there are three main roads which lead to most toursit attractions if you like walking in the sunshine which we preferred. Overall a great hotel in a great location - lead to a wonderful weekend.
What a great find.Stayed for four nights a very clean hotel. Friendly staff at all times of the day.Breakfast is OK with a good variety.
Location couldn't be better for down town Rome, a short walk to catch the #2 tram to take you to the nearest metro staion at Flaminio where you can go anywhere in the City.
There is a good chinese restaurant within walking distance (60 euros for four people including drinks).Across the road from the hotel is a passable pizzeria/restaurant.If you want to go further afield I would reccomend the 'Sicilianbocca' on the Via E.Faa di Bruno IN PRATI a very classy fish restaurant.
Great value for money
I stayed in this hotel from the 6th to 9th January 2006.
The Hotel is situated in a very quiet area of the city, 100 yards next to a tram station (4 stations from red metro station Flaminia). The tram intervalls are 5 min. approx. Nice and cheap pizzeria and irish pub in the neighbourhood (on the other side of the street)
Small, but comfortable rooms (TV, Minibar), excellent, modern shower and toilet. Very clean. Very helpful, english speaking, staff.
Only one small negative point: The breakfast coffee is hardly drinkable. A "Saeco" or a Nespresso coffee machine would bring here additional service for the guests. But this is really the only negative aspect.
Excellent value for money.
We arrived at the Villa Glori only to discover that we had made an error with our booking and did not have a room reserved as we had expected. The front desk staff could not have been more helpful, finding us a room for the night and, although they could not accommodate us for longer, helping us find alternative accommodation, recommending restaurants and booking taxis. Many thanks to Alfredo and co. They turned what could have been a disaster into an adventure.
Great Value in quiet area of Central Rome
The Villa Glori is a small homely hotel in a quiet mews close to the river. It is rated3* but the rooms are nearer 4*. Immaculately clean from the polished marble lobby to the pristine en-suite bathrooms. Smartly furnished public areas in very good decorative order. Bedrooms comfortably furnished with pleasant drapes and bed covers. Crisp and clean bed linen changed daily. Flat screen TV, digital safe and well stocked mini bar.
Extremely helpful front-desk staff (even at 3.00am arrival!! - 3 hours late -thanks Ryanair!) - staff couldn't have been more pleasant. We felt we had made a real 'discovery' here. Hotel breakfast is more than adequate, a little more choice than typical continental. There are a couple of nice bars and restaurants just across the street.
Location is more than a stroll from major attractions but plenty of public transport (tram to Flaminia Station (3 stops) and then Metro to anywhere else. NOTE - please be extra extra vigilant about thieves - one member of our foursome had his wallet (in a zipped up side pocket of his trousers) stolen by a pickpocket (with diversionary accomplice) on the Metro. At the police station there were two other victims who had their handbags slashed and purses stolen - again on the Metro) We used taxis - they're not that expensive during the day-especially if there's a few of you to share.
A great weekend in a quality hotel at value for money we couldn't believe.
Nice quiet hotel
very quiet clean hotel,good base away from the hectic centre,basic breakfast,small lounge area,close to tram stop ,5 min ride ,then metro to anywhere in rome,good value for money..
Quiet in Rome!
We spent four nights in July 2003 at the Glori. Small room but clean and air conditioned most of the time. Air conditioner cuts off when it is cool enough outside to open the window. Good desk help; all competent in English. Located on a quiet dead end street in North Rome.
One block from the #2 trolley that will take you a mile to the Flaminio tube station which will connect you with anywhere in the city. We were pleased and would return.

What a comedy of errors! My train to Roma is at 3pm. Ticket cost 58 euro. Firstly, the 11.45 am hydrofoil from Ischia to Napoli was booked out. Stupid me should have bought a ticket the other day when I checked the times. Got the next one, scheduled to leave at 1.20pm. It left around 1.35pm. Should take around 45 mins but it took almost an hour. Finally get to Napoli, I was first cab off the gangplank except that they ...
... water bus no.1 which took us around to the Rialto Bridge stop
St Peter's Basilica at night
. We had to walk a bit of a way with our bags to find our hotel. We crossed 3 little bridges on the way! Our hotel is great, though a little old and rickety, the room is very little but we all fit just fine.
We quickly freshened up and then went out walking ...
... Roman Forum and learnt more of the amazing history of Rome. Our tour today has been quite tiring and the day has also been very hot so we are enjoying our rest for now. One thing I have learnt is that when you spend only one day in Rome you find much more things you want to see and do than you can in a day ... Rome wasn't built in a day and it's impossible to fully appreciate this place in such a short amount of time, but I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to be ...
... under construction, but the steps were great!
One of my favorite movies of all time is Eat Pray Love, and in one scene Julia Roberts is in the Augusteum. This is definitely off the beaten path but Sonia was determined to take me because I wanted to see it so bad. It took a lot of navigating and asking questions to strangers but eventually we stumbled upon it--surrounded by a construction fence and totally abandoned, Gilbert (the ...
Let me just say, it was so nice being back in Roma. Even though I am not a big-city person, I missed the fast-paced Roman life style in Trastevere.
I honestly didn't like Rome at all my first week but by the second week, I had branched outside the typical tourist spots and into some fun cobble-stoned side streets and piazzas. It was exactly how I originally pictured Rome; full of life and history. Each corner is unique and ...
