“Great for families too!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

Kids LOVE the hotel. The pool area is wonderful and a great place to recharge between "tourismus" and dinner. The shuttle is great and gives a nice separation from the "scene" downtown (which may or may not appeal). Agree with comments re nice rooms and professional staff, as you'd expect at the price point. The "grill room" (the alternative to twostar dining in hotel) is like any dreary breakfast room anywhere but all of Rome's kitchens is 5 mins on the shuttle so no problem.
Note: the pool closes for winter. Without it open, I'd perhaps stay elsewhere.

Loved staying at ths hotel. From the moment you walk in you are well looked after. The facilities are great: beautiful garden, good size pool and deck chairs. My husband and I stayed at this hotel while we were visiting Rome while planning our August wedding.
The hotel is located near villa borghese and has a free shuttle service to Spanish steps.

Just returned from a five day trip to Rome staying at the Aldrovandia. The service was great The hotel is fantastic, highly recomend staying here. The breakfast was fantastic. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom very luxurious. Staff very very friendly. Did not see any kids while we were had no problem with noise from other rooms (we were so tired after sightseeing all day). Great service. we did not have dinner in the hotel as we took advantage of the complimentary shuttle serice to the Spanish Steps and ate out in the city.We will certainly be visiting this hotel again. Out in the greenery just a short ride to the attractions of Rome. rome is such a beaytiful city and the hotel added a lot to this feeling

Room Tip: we stayed on third floor facing the swimming pool was great

A very classy hotel with excellent service and very elegantly appointed. Lovely furniture and rooms, very comfortable, great choices for breakfast with nothing too much trouble. Only criticism would have to the cost of drinks in the bar. 9 euros for a small beer is expensive even with nuts and crisps. I don't mind paying higher than normal prices for such a lovely hotel but I think 9 euros is excessive.

This is the best hotel. Period. My wife and I came for a romantic break and found our piece of Roman paradise here. The location is just perfect: Villa Borghese is a beautiful part of the city; a romantic walk through the park will reward you with a commanding panorama of Rome just above the Spanish steps. The rooms are elegantly decorated, with a lot of attention to detail. Both the comfortable beds and the lack of any noise at night allow for peaceful sleep. Once awake, the best start to the day anyone could wish for awaits you in the elegant surroundings of the "green room". Outside, the pool area is the perfect place to relax. The gardens are beautifully and stylishly maintained, and you could be tempted to spend all day here, lying in the sun, or sitting in the shade. The service is impeccable in all parts of the hotel. Everyone is so friendly, and genuinely can't do enough for you. If you want to find out what true "class" is, then you will find it here. We look forward to our next visit here!

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the pool and garden area.
