From the outside and the narrow little reception area we had no idea what lay ahead. Our room although tiny (we struggled to find somewhere to put our suitcase without tripping over it) the view however completely made up for this, we we overlooking the Trevi Fountain. The bed although small was very comfy. The bathroom again very tiny didn't... More

We chose this hotel because of the location which is great. The main reason we booked was to overlook the Trevi fountain which is covered in scaffolding due to repairs. Although this is not the fault of the hotel I feel that we would have booked elsewhere if we had known the extent of the work being done. The hotel... More

We stayed at this hotel on our very first trip to Rome and the location was so perfect that we fell in love with Rome from the first moment our taxi dropped us near the fountain on a sweltering day in July 2006. We've been to Rome 9 further times since, and have loved every place we've chosen to stay... More

After booking the hotel for a long weekend and finding that the Trevi was undergoing some restoration we considered changing the booking but decided not to in the end and are very glad we didn't. We did email ahead as I had seen some reviews relating to issues with bathrooms and being a big chap I wanted to make sure... More

Me and my two sisters took our Mum to the Fontana Hotel to celebrate her 85th birthday. This hotel is in an excellent position for seeing lots of attractions and just a stones throw from the Trevi Fountain, unfortunately the Trevi is closed until next summer. The staff at the hotel are really nice and helpful, they even offered to... More

I had seen this hotel on a previous visit to Rome & decided I'd like to stay there. The last hotel I'd stayed in was beautiful & modern, so this olde worlde hotel was a complete change & I loved it! It's in an ideal situation being directly in front of the Trevi Fountain. Our room was on the front,... More

If you look for a nice and cozy hotel, this is the perfect one. It is not Hilton style luxury, but having the location right in front of Fontana di trevi, gives it 6 stars. Rooms are small, but have comfy king size beds, small window with the fountain view and you can have breakfast from the top roof admiring... More

"Fantastic Fontana di Trevi" We stayed in the very centre window room. Overlooking the Trevi Fountain, window seat looking right down onto the fountain. Buffet breakfast top floor, no noise of tourists below. Spotlessly clean certainly would highly recommend this very special hotel. We stayed for one week, we will go again!

Four years ago, we stayed at the Hotel Fontana in Rome. The hotel seemed charming to us, mostly because of the glorious view of the Trevi fountain. We went back this year for another 3 days in Rome. Without the view (the fountain is under construction), the hotel is just okay. Positives: great free internet, good location for walking around... More

With windows opening out onto the Trevi fountain what's not to like but I would not consider staying here in a room without the view....very basic rooms....not helped by the fact that the fountain is closed for renovation until next year....

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
