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. Our room (403) had the biggest balcony I have ever seen. Staff helpful... More

A very decent 2 star, with excellent restaurant within 5 min walk. No need to taxi back - use the public transport - you know BUSES !! Large room with balcony, the only thing I would say is try and get a room at the front as the back road is very busy/noisy. Lovely sitting out area for breakfast too... More

After reading other reviews about this hotel, I was a little concerned about going here. However, this hotel for a 2 star hotel was very acceptable. Clean tidy rooms, cleaned daily. clean bedding and fresh towels are provided every day. The breakfast is very enjoyable before a days sightseeing. Coffee and a pastry is enough for me for breakfast We... More
