I booked in at the villa porpora upon landing in Rome. I wanted to stay there as it was walking distance to the Borghese gardens and gallery. Unfortunately, the hotel was not wheelchair accessible as promised by booking.com. The owner and her son Marco went out of their way to help me find new accommodation (I didn't speak the language),... More

A family run hotel near numerous bus stations was a great place to stay during my conference at a nearby luxury hotel. I truly loved the atmosphere, which was friendly and felt like a home away from home. Even though there was an issue with the hot water at some point (not their fault) they did their very best to...

A great b&b next to Borghese park. Stayed one night and really enjoyed it. The staff were so helpful to us and you feel a friendly atmosphere when outside, Rome is buzzing away. Rooms are modernised and quite spacious. We had a top floor terrace as well. There is a great local restaurant about 400m away. I would stay again... More

I'm NOT one who gives perfect scores, but Porpora sets the standard! My wife and I loved our 4th floor rooms w/ BIG private terrace. The spacious, spotless, and quiet rooms (@400 SF) had marbled floors, great water pressure (watch the hot faucet), and a firm bed. The upscale neighborhood is close to buses and the marvelous Villa Borghese. Breakfast... More

My children and I spent a few restful nights at the Hotel Villa Porpora, just a stone's throw from Villa Borghese in a very chicy area of Rome (Parioli). This family-run hotel was a pleasant surprise: newly revonated, very clean and comfortable, and nice friendly staff. My children particularly enjoyed the fresh Italian croissants served for breakfast....which also included fresh... More

Stayed there with my partner for 4 nights in April 2005. Took a bit of finding and is definitely further from the city centre than the websites claim! Nonetheless, the room was incredibly spacious, bed very comfortable. Metal shutters on the windows for those of us unfortunate enough to be unaccustomed to sunlight. A corridor between door of room and... More

Booked four day stay quite pleasant. Breakfast not too bad if you like ice-coated crossiants! A bit surprised by the lack of spoken english, especially for such a major city in the world. So make sure you have a map on your travels as the one given by this hotel is pretty unless, because the hotel doesn't even appear on... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Villa Porpora immediately before christmas 2005. We'd read some negative reviews, but hadn't been expecting much more than basic in the first place. We were pleasantly surprised! Yes, the building is old-fashioned (this is part of its charm!) but the staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful, and the rooms very clean. They are... More

We stayed in this hotel in Aug 05...It is in a nice area, we felt safe walking around at night. Easy for bus into the main area Termani...Where underground or buses can be easily used to get around all the tourist stops. Rooms are clean and quiet.

Staying in Parioli

Neighborhood Profile
Parioli
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavor of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has several great sporting clubs known for tennis and riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.
