“Centrally Located and Attentive to their guests”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2011

Located halfway between the Spanish Steps and Vatican City, Borghese Hotel strives to make every guest's stay the most enjoyable. A nice continental breakfast starts your day off on a good note, and the myriad of good restaurants within 100 yeards makes a great ending to each day. Hotel sits back off of street, and entrance is thru a courtyard and up to the second floor in a very small elevator. Staff (and the owner) handle every request from recommendations for dinner to directions to having taxis ready when you want to leave in a most efficient manner. My wife and I will definately return here.

This was a wonderful choice for our stay in Rome. The hotel is centrally located, minutes from the Pantheon and the Spanish Steps. Its not a fancy place: the hotel is on the third floor, but the rooms are good sized, clean, comfortable beds, and relatively quiet given the central location. The owner and staff were very helpful and friendly.
We would make this our base in Rome again.

Many sites and good restaurants are within walking distance. Use Claudio Caponera's limoinrome for transfers and you have a winning combination.

You can't beat the location and value. Between the Spanish Steps and Piazza Narvona. You are also close to the Vatican and tons of great restaurants. The rooms are spacious, with nice bathrooms (both by European standards). While the furnishings quality, they are dated. The breakfast is standard European, in other words good but not much food. Where this hotel really stands out is service. The staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The housekeeping is also quite good.

Due to reviews online we tried this Hotel Fontanella Borghese. Its a quaint hotel with an old lift to the 2nd flr. About 20 steps up to our room, but that was fine. Room overlooked courtyard & oh so quiet. Secure gate closed at night. Wireless 5 euros per day & TV shows in Italian. Wow, what a great location; we walked to Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, shopping, Navona square, Pantheon even though I have difficulty walking far. Hotel arranged Appian Way Tours to take us to Ostia Antica which was wonderful & affordable. Room was clean; only negative was drain clog lst 2 nights. Hotel staff very helpful & loved the coffee and breakfast which consisted of boiled eggs, pastries, juices, water, fruits. Quite expensive room rate though. Thanks to Tripadvisor for the heads' up!

Italian charm, located away from major tourism yet still 5-10 min. walk away from the Piazza di Spanga. Not much for views but you could hear accordians playing nightly outside the shuttered windows. "Khaled" a staff member at the front desk was especially helpful and kind with making our stay at Fontanella a pleasant one.

As other reviewers have said the Fontanella Borghese is in a great location but is showing signs of age. Bathroom was tired as was the furniture and bed covering. Owner was friendly if not a bit "pushy" and the breakfast was adequate. Would not rate this as highly as others have rated it and would not return.
