We stayed at the hotel from 6/23 - 6/28 and it was a very nice stay. The price is very reasonable for Rome and the location is outstanding.

A nice quiet hotel with friendly staff in a location convenient for many attractions but still in a relatively peaceful location. The breakfast is continental with nice pastries and good coffee served in a small and quiet breakfast room. Its a modest hotel with typical Rome prices but overall we found it to be good value and we would recommend... More

I truly enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Fontanella Borghese. Khaled, one of the concierges, was very hospitable, especially since my luggage did not arrive for two days. The staff was very helpful with giving directions and in drawing maps for my son and I. We received great recommendations for a barber, hairstylist, restaurants, and jewelry stores. The rooms were...

We spent a few nights in this hotel. It's location is perfect: walking distance from many hotspots of the historical Rome. The rates that it applies are very reasonable. The comfort is reasonable as well, but it was fine since we did not expect anything luxurious. We will definitely come back.

I choose this hotel for my 1st trip to Rome based on price & location & am so HAPPY that I did. I spent 6 nights. Staff was always helpful with directions/recommendations. Most major sites are between a 10-30 minute walk. I felt safe walking to/from the hotel at night alone. Lots of great cafes nearby. I always recommend bringing... More
