“Simply Superb Sofitel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

It was our first trip to Rome & as we are Accor club member we decided to try the Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese! Our visit lasted 10 days and this hotel was a complete haven of luxury at the end of long days of touring this fabulous city! The hotel is on a quiet street and our bedroom, on the sixth floor, was beautifully apportioned, with a lovely spacious bathroom. All the staff were very friendly and endlessly helpful - nothing was too much trouble! At barely 5 mins walk from the Borghese Gardens and only a short walk to the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain & the metro, this hotel is close to all the major sites! There are plenty of restuarants and cafes within a ten minute walk and they are not expensive despite some being adjacent to the via Condotti (exclusive shopping street!!). We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, a luxurious corner of Rome, without the price tag normally associated with such a high standard of hotel! :-)

We spent three nights in Rome and booked a suite at the Sofitel Villa Borghese. The room was renovated and had very good comfy beds, nice bathroom with bathrobes, slippers, Hermes soap, shower gel, etc... The standard rooms are perhaps a bit tired (I had the chance to check some) but have their charm. The personnel like to welcome you in french, so do all the waiters. The top floor panoramic bar/restaurant is very nice but absolutely overpriced. A cocktail will cost you 15€ minimum. Breakfast is served in the beautifully renovated basement - count 30€ per person/day. The choice is amazing and everything is excellent - so is the service! Top class, but overpriced!

I would really recommend the hotel as the location is absolutely central - walking distance to the Spanish steps, Trevi fountains, shopping, etc.... We took a cab to visit St Paul's and the Vatican museum.

If you have some questions do not hesitate to send me an e-mail!

Room Tip: Take a suite and ask for a quiet top floor room.

I treated my girlfriend to a 2 night break in Rome for her 21st in January and we stayed at the Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese.

As soon as we walked into the foyer, I knew I had made the right choice. The hotel is immaculate, luxurious and in a great location, with a 5 minute walk to the Spanish Steps. The hotel staff were very friendly and our room had a marble bathroom and a great view over Rome.

My only tiny complaint is the price of the drinks in the hotel bar, which is on the top floor with a unbeatable view. It would have been nice to have a few drinks before heading out into the city but you would need a small loan for this.

This hotel is highly recommended by both of us and if we were ever to return to Rome then we wouldn't hesitate to come back.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for choosing the Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese on your visit to the “Eternal City”.

We are happy to know that you enjoyed your time during your stay. We thank you for your kind words.

Our daily main concern is to look after our guests offering them our undivided attention and our utmost reward is to hear our guests satisfaction.

We thank for your pointing out many of our assets: the central yet quiet location, the unbreathtaking view over the "Eternal City", the elegance and luxury of this antic palace but the one we are the most proud of is our high standard of services.

We are sorry however to hear that the price of the drinks in the hotel bar was not to your full satisfaction. Kindly allow me to mention that we have aligned our offering to other five star hotels in the area. Nevertheless please rest assured that we have taken note of your comments and will review these with the F&B Director.

Once again we are thankful to your comments and look forward to welcoming you back.

My girlfriend and I have just returned from a Trip to Rome where we spent 3 luxury nights at the Sofitel Villa Borghese. From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were treated impeccably. Having checked in well before the allocated time, we were taken up to the 7th Floor bar for a complimentary welcome drink. The view from the bar is incredible.

The location is great, being just up from the Spanish Steps it allows you to escape the hustle and bustle of the City and relax after a long day site seeing and shopping. The room was fantastic, with great decor, amazing beds and the added touch of Hermes bath products!

I hadn't informed the hotel that it was my girlfriends birthday on our final night, but somehow they knew (either from her passport at check-in, or housekeeping seeing birthday cards open in the room). When we returned from our day sightseeing, we found a hand written birthday card and gift, as well as an invitation to the bar that evening from a glass of champagne on the house.

I stay in a lot of Hotels for both work and pleasure, but can honestly say this is some of the best service I have ever come across.

A fantastic stay, in a fantastic city. We will be back! Book this hotel- you'll love it!

A beautiful hotel with great staff & service. The location is central near the Borghese gardens and a short walk to the Spanish steps and Via Venetto. The restaurant & bar on the top level has good food with fabulous views of Rome. I highly recommend this hotel and would love to return.

Indeed, for those who come to Rome in search of art and history but are also willing to be seduced by its elegant boutiques, the hotel has the perfect location.

From the reception staff to the restaurant waiters and waitresses all service was outstanding.
Special mention to the concierge and service at the breakfast !!
The location of the hotel permitted us to walk to the most interesting places and the view from the restaurant in the upper floor is delightful.
We are planning to return to Rome and stay again at your delightful hotel.
Only criticism is the lack of enclosure to take a shower.
