Stayed for 3 nights and realized this is way too short, especially for the first time. The location is overwhelming! Close to everything and absolulutely no need in transport of any kind (except when going back to the hotel after having too much Chianti :-)). The smiling and welcoming Staff is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Always ready to help, to suggest and make... More

We stayed on the top floor and this room was a little smaller and felt older. Thee rooms could use some updates, but the hotel is clean, a wonderful location, and we will stay there again on our next trip to Rome.

This 2nd floor collection of rooms is extremely well located for sightseeing the highlights of Rome, yet away from the the really busy streets, so quiet at night. You can walk everywhere from there! The room we stayed in was smallish, simple and sufficient, decorated in soft neutral wall colors and green accents with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was... More

Stayed here for one night and was pleasantly surprised by the friendliness: the welcoming, helpful and easy-going attitude of the staff who gave sound advice on tourist and practical stuff: where to get a decent glass of wine and plate of food in this tourist-heart of Rome. The breakfast was great (including fresh fruit! a dearth in many italian breakfasts)... More

We stayed in this hotel for a few nights. Unlike most of the other favourable reviews, we can't recommend this hotel. It is in need of a spruce up. The room that we stayed in was shabby. Back room staff were excellent. Front room staff specifically older gentleman with grey hair and older woman with short blonde hair and glasses... More

My favorite hotel in Rome is the Fontanella Borghese. I took my mother and daughter with me on a business trip 2 summers ago so it was a combination business and family trip. The rooms aren't fancy - small but very clean and importantly, very quiet. The hotel is located across from the Borghese Palace in a small piazza -... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Fontanella Borghese. One of the clerks, Khaled, was a lot of fun and really made our stay even more enjoyable. The location is fabulous, close to so many of the main attractions. The rooms were nice and the service was very good. The staff was very helpful.
