We went back again this year to this hotel, I like the location it's by the park and very quiet . The garden and the pool are beautiful and very pleasant to spend time . Just the rooms need refurnishing and be more updated .

I have often asked myself what makes for a world class luxury hotel. We have stayed in many luxury hotels and many are beautiful. This hotel is also beautiful. Located on the Villa Borghese park it has a feel of being outside the city, but it is not too far from the center. The pool is wonderful and the grounds are lovely. The rooms have a charm of a Villa rather than the feel of a hotel. But there is something more that makes a hotel a great hotel. It is a caring about the experience of the guest, and a willingness to take responsibility for problems that occur during your stay. We had such a problem that was upsetting. At that juncture Francesco (the hotel manager) and Alessandra (the deputy manager) got personally involved. They turned our trip around. They took personal responsibility and made us feel truly welcome and valued. A truly great hotel is not just one that looks beautiful and is luxurious, but one where you feel pampered and taken care of in your stay in a foreign country. This is a world class hotel!

I have stayed in June 2017 for one night. The areas of the swimming pool and the lobby were really nice and the personnel very polite and friendly. However, the deluxe room that i booked eventhough it was mentioned as one of the best rooms, located on the upper floors with great views, it was on the ground floor with view to the parking space! And inside unfortunately had nothing to do with the photos you see both at the hotel's site and

Really loved our recent stay here. The hotel is friendly, welcoming and discretely luxurious. The lovely pool is a massive bonus and lunches and evening drinks beside it were a real treat, especially as temperatures were in the 80sF during our stay. The concierges, Mario and Enzo in particular, were super-helpful and booked us great recommendations for dinner nearby. Our family room for three was comfortable and clean and great to come back to. Can't wait to return to Rome and the Aldrovandi.

Stayed over weekend for the conference. (They have nice business room). Everything is luxurious :lobby, corridors, restaurants, rooms. Stuff is discreet and polite, breakfast excellent, spot-on cleanness, etc... above all for me the location is the best, it is not city centre but it is next to one of the most beautiful areas of Rome (filmed in famous Dolce Vita movie). True gem. Recommended

This is a lovely hotel with the bonus of being out of the hustle and bustle with a great pool. They run a brilliant complementary shuttle in to the centre near the Spanish steps. The staff could not be more helpful and the concierge sorted out some fabulous restaurants for us. I would suggest a room overlooking the garden rather than the "city" view room which we chose as there isn't actually a view and the trams which go past are quite noisy during the night. We didn't eat in the Michelin restaurant as wanted to be in the city centre but our lunch in the restaurant near the pool when we arrived was lovely.

Positives: The breakfast is very good. The pool, garden, gym and spa area are also very good. Negatives: The price of food and drink are expensive, maybe to be expected in a '5 Star' establishment. What let it down for me was the quality of the room. For me it just wasn't '5 Star'. It was 4 star at best. I believe the rooms are due to have a makeover, but for an expensive break my expectations were that the bedroom would reflect the price paid. Overall it was a lovely experience, but the quality of the bedroom let it down.

First of all the positives. Nearly all the staff are very professional and the service can be second to none. The pool area, gym and hotel are lovely. Now the negatives. We stayed in a room on the 5th floor and the air conditioning worked for about an hour then stopped slowing cold air. This led to us having the window open which was fine until 5am when the trams started to run and you are awoken to the sound as though they are in the room. The bed was not comfortable at all and I slept very little the 5 days I was there. Also, I think it was the assistant manager of the restaurant (but I might have that incorrect) was very surly when we visited the pool bar restaurant area with us. We had to wait 20 minutes for menus and that was after asking him twice and in the end I got them myself. Overall the staff were very polite and professional

Loved this hotel. True 5 star feeling, and the pool area, which has a bar and restaurant, is absolutely stunning. The location is perhaps a bit off, but the hotel offers a free shuttle to and from the Spanish Steps area every 30 minutes. I would definitely consider staying here again, especially if I plan to spend most time by the pool. Our room was huge with high ceilings and very comfortable. The room decor didn't appeal to me that much, but that didn't bother me since we spent the entire time by the pool anyway.

Located just in face of Villa Borghese with an internal garden and open air swimming pool it's an excellent location for a relaxing stay in Rome. Not the busy central Rome that most of the people immagine. The service is of high standards and so are all the rooms, mine 509 like all the rooms facing the road (where a tramway passes) can at moment be a bit noisy. The room is up to the expectations, the only thing that I would add is a scale. The bar and restaurant Assaje are excellent.
