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!

We visited this hotel in December 2012 to celebrate my wife`s birthday.The hotel staff were fantastic throughout our stay.Particularly the manager and the guest relations manager were outstanding and made our stay very special and treated us like VIP`s.Nothing was too much trouble and were particularly helpfull in directed us to the local restaurants and attractions.
The quality of the hotel was of the highest standard and the view from the rooftop bar of Rome was stunning.Thank you to all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable and for suprising my wife with a birthday cake on the day.Would recommend this hotel and we will certainly return.

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.

We are delighted to hear that you had a wonderful stay with us at Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese.

It is so pleasant to read such positive feedbacks as yours. Thank you! We do our utmost to enchant our guests and I am glad to hear that we have achieved our aim.

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. It's located within walking distance of Villa Borghese, the “Galleria Borghese, the Spanish Steps, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and the most exclusive boutiques in downtown Rome.

The Executive Chef felt really proud when hearing that you have had such an enjoyable dinner experience at our restaurant La Terrasse Cuisine & Lounge as he uses only the freshiest products on the market.

We then look forward to your next visit.

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.

A lovely hotel in a nice part of Rome. Near Villa Borhese - a must to visit (order tickets on the web in advance otherwise no chance). Great room, lovely bed. Very nice roof terrace for lunch and dinner. Great breakfast buffet in the basement restaurant.

Very happy with the service, cleanliness and location of the hotel. The bar/restaurant on the 7th floor has an amazing view of Vatican City. Great for a nightcap in the evening!
Was slightly disappointed with the breakfast prices e.g. EUR 30 for buffet, EUR 15 for a pot of tea.
However, will definitely return to this hotel when in Rome.

Dear Guest,

I was truly glad to hear about your great experience at Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese.

Service wise we try our utmost to indulge all of our guests as we have a passion for them.

The Executive Chef felt really proud when hearing that you have had such an enjoyable breakfast experience at our restaurant Le 49. Indeed, early in the morning, French and Italian cultures blend together to delight guests’ palates at breakfast. A grand buffet filled with the finest pastries and many different types of bread greets guests along the lines of a true French tradition: “croissant e pain au chocolat”, fresh-baked cakes and biscuits, fresh fruits, homemade yogurt, cold cuts and cheeses, biological eggs and a large selection of breads, the true flagship of the hotel, as well the best Italian ingredients for a vast selection of high quality tea and coffee blends.

We then look forward to your next visit.

After being forced out of Maison Giulia (they do not allow you to catch any sleep there by providing concrete matrasses, see my review there) we were forced to move to another hotel, this one became our choice.
To start with: excellent mattresses, caught my first sleep in two nights.
The rooms are not big, but big enough. Service is outstanding, absolute five star.
The bar/restaurant on the top floor is really nice, outstanding view, however reasonable food. The ceasar Salade was not good unfortunately, old lettuce.
Location is ok, the old hotel area of Rome next to the Villa Borghese park, but it is also (quit funny) the base of some strip clubs. Good shops and bars/restaurants in proximity.
No wellness, which these days in my opinion is a must for a five star.
Fitness is not much to speak about either, just a tredmill and a cross trainer, for me it was sufficient, but would not call this five star either.
In short: service is five star, amenities just lacking short (4 star).
