Stayed for 3 nights and realized this is way too short, especially for the first time. The location is overwhelming! Close to everything and absolulutely no need in transport of any kind (except when going back to the hotel after having too much Chianti :-)). The smiling and welcoming Staff is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Always ready to help, to suggest and make you feel good in generally.
Cynthia and Milena (and Shooshoo) - you are adorable and i miss you guys already.

Definatelly coming back for longer stay and ONLY to Fontanella Borghese.

Room Tip: The hotel is small and cosy, so there is no real difference between rooms.

We stayed on the top floor and this room was a little smaller and felt older. Thee rooms could use some updates, but the hotel is clean, a wonderful location, and we will stay there again on our next trip to Rome.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms that are to the left of the check in counter ( when you are facing the desk - your left)

This was our first visit to Rome and we wanted to be within walking distance of the maximum of sites of interest as well as to be able to rely on the good advice of the hotel team in terms of where to go and where to eat.
We could not have found better!
The hotel was clean and quiet - very cosy and welcoming
During our stay ,we needed no taxi's, buses, metros - all was close by.
The suggestions for restuarants - at all levels of price - was always spot on.
The helpfulness of the team was always as wanted - not intrusive and always comprehensive.
A big "thank you" to everyone.

This 2nd floor collection of rooms is extremely well located for sightseeing the highlights of Rome, yet away from the the really busy streets, so quiet at night. You can walk everywhere from there! The room we stayed in was smallish, simple and sufficient, decorated in soft neutral wall colors and green accents with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was quite pleasant with nice tile trims. The breakfast was adequate, the coffee great. The owner was delightful, very present and welcoming, referring to her establishment as "your home in Rome." The staff was good to us, very helpful and courteous. I would recommend this place for its location.

Room Tip: Away from street would be quieter in the morning.

Stayed here for one night and was pleasantly surprised by the friendliness: the welcoming, helpful and easy-going attitude of the staff who gave sound advice on tourist and practical stuff: where to get a decent glass of wine and plate of food in this tourist-heart of Rome. The breakfast was great (including fresh fruit! a dearth in many italian breakfasts) and good coffee — a roast and blend which the hotel proprietor Cinzia herself has perfected over the year.
The hotel is clean and one feels comfortable to linger and read in the common areas. Note though that the single rooms are very much on the small side (like their sister hotel Hotel Due Torre) so if you are inclined to claustrophobia need a little more breathing space it might just be worth it to book yourself a double room.
