On 1st July 2019, luxury hotel Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese reopened its doors following extensive renovations and a complete re-design by French contemporary architect and interior designer, Jean-Philippe Nuel. Located in the heart of Rome, minutes away from the city’s finest attractions and landmarks, Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese evokes the feel of a traditional Roman home with a laid-back atmosphere and a sense of being truly immersed in the Italian capital. Architecture & Design Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese is situated in a former 19th century Roman palazzo and its original features stood as a prominent stimulant for Nuel’s vision. The landscape gardens of the adjacent Villa Borghese further inspired the new look of nature-based colours, prints and furnishings. The overall design of the hotel is a fusion of ‘La Dolce Vita’ Italian heritage with contemporary French ‘Art de Vivre’, creating a dialogue between the elegance of French classicism and the opulence of Italian baroque, but also between city and nature, heritage and modernity. This is showcased through crisp, pastel colours and Italian heritage art. The downstairs public spaces revolve around statement pieces such as the marble mosaic floor contrasting with the building's original chequered tiles. Rooms & Suites The hotel features a total of 78 rooms and suites and each have exquisite interiors and detailing throughout; Baroque-inspired ceiling art that creates the illusion of a blue sky above, a signature Sofitel MyBed* bed, and a marble bathroom complete with Hermès toiletries. The hotel offers a wide range of accommodation categories, from superior One-bedroom, to the 538 square-feed Prestige King-bedroom Suites. The seven Prestige Suites, some with private terraces, all come with luxurious amenities – leather key cardholders, a choice of room fragrance, indulgent bath rituals, and monogrammed pillowcases. All 78 rooms and suites have access to 24-hour room service. Restaurant & Bar The crown jewel of the hotel, situated on the seventh floor, is the restaurant and bar, ‘Settimo’. One of the highest rooftop restaurants in the city, Settimo is an elegant botanical escape that offers panoramic views of the Villa Borghese gardens, The Vatican City and St. Peter’s Basilica. It displays bold interiors and seats up to 50 guests indoors and 15 on the terrace. Cocktail enthusiasts at Settimo can enjoy sundowners with a view, with one of Settimo’s signature drinks, which comes with specially paired finger food. Settimo serves contemporary Roman dishes using locally sourced ingredients, such as the Supplì alla Romana, Cacio e Pepe and Rigatoni Amatriciana. The Executive Chef, Giuseppe D’Alessio, incorporates traditional Roman culinary styles with his signature flair across the menu. After his studies at the Institute Hotelier and wide experience in various parts of Italy, D’Alessio refined his culinary skills across Europe, working in the restaurants of luxury hotels in England, France and Germany – two of which have received Michelin Stars. D’Alessio arrived in Rome in 2004, for a prestigious position at the famous restaurant, La Terrazza dell’Eden, where he worked alongside the Executive Chef. Meetings and Events The hotel has three meetings rooms, which can host up to a maximum capacity of 40 people, or a maximum banquet capacity of 20 people. The meeting rooms and welcoming lounge can be adapted for events, banquets, cocktail evenings or even private receptions. The hotel’s Meeting concierge are on hand to guide an option of activities and visits, as well as suggesting tailor-made menus, from wine tasting to French patisserie. The hotel is also a popular business centre in the heart of room with boutique secretarial services. Fitness and Wellness The hotel offers guests a fitness centre, which is equipped with a Techno-gym and Sofitel Fit wellness programmes. Location Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese is ideally located in the heart of Rome, by the gates of the Villa Borghese gardens and just minutes away from landmarks such as The Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain and Villa Medici, making it a perfect choice for those looking to be truly immersed in the Eternal City. The hotel is also only 32km away from Leonardo da Vinci International Airport, allowing guests to travel with great ease.

The hotel seems to be renovated recently. It is very beautiful and the attention to detail is (as to be expected from Sofitel) really impressive. The luxury room is not large but therefore very comfortable, beautifully decorated, and equipped with the worlds best hotelbeds (Sofitel's hallmark). The restaurant on the 7th floor with terrace and view of the Vatican has a Michelin star. The location of the hotel a 15 minute walk from Trevi and many restaurants and cafes in the area is excellent.

What a great hotel. A total find. Location is 5 mins from The Spanish Steps and it's 25 mins to walk to the Colosseum via the steps and Trevi Fountain. The hotel is immaculate with a fabulous roof terrace and restaurant. What a view at breakfast. Highly recommend

Great hotel. Awesome location and views, close to everything but not in the noisy middle of it. Very friendly, professional and accommodating staff. Everyone from the reception to housekeeping went above and beyond. Perfect. Will be back.

This place is more like 4.5 stars but due to the concierge staff they deserve 5. I was not prepared for how shady the cabs are out there. I got tricked by one and the hotel staff was very helpful. All the cabs that the hotel call are legit but taking one there pay attention to the meter ect. Now on to the hotel Positives *very professional & friendly staff *beautiful & updated hotel * located near Spanish steps *felt very safe in this location Negatives *they upcharged us 120 euros per night to use the couch as pull out bed after I prepaid for the room. Absurd. Never in all my European travels has this happened. They did try to work with us. * cleanliness was lacking a bit. A few times someone else’s hair was found in bathroom. Some spots not cleaned in shower. Stain on couch & pillow case. One day our room wasn’t cleaned as they claimed we put do not disturb on. Regardless of this.. we would still choose this hotel again. Just be mindful if you travel with a child or teenager & need a 2nd bed.

This Hotel is very well located and the rooms are amazing, at least the Roof Top Prestige Suites and the rooms located at the front corner. Not all the Prestige Suites are Roof top with terrace and it is almost impossible to be aware in advance. Lucca and Analisa, from the management, have properly manage some inconveniences. In addition Guilia from the restaurant has been very professional at the proper moment. What is not necessary the case for several persons of the staff. The valets are also very professionals, for example they have been very honest and transparent concerning the different options to park the car.
