We had such a lovely time at the Hotel Fontanella Borghese twelve years ago that we sought it out again for this visit to Rome. I emailed the hotel in advance to see if we could possibly get the same beautiful room we had before and were graciously accommodated. The elegance of this boutique hotel is a lovely mix of old world with modern conveniences. The location is superb...close to the Spanish Steps and within easy walking distance of the Pantheon, Piazza Navonna, and other top sites in Rome. The staff was wonderful in marking up the provided map to get us to where we wanted to go. Our room (107) had a king-sized bed (important for my husband and me) that was so very comfortable, a view of the inner courtyard (which meant less street noise), and an incredible inlaid stone floor that reminded us how old the building really is. A lot of delicious restaurants are nearby and of course all over Rome, and the staff was helpful in recommendations and making reservations. We were sorry to leave and will definitely return to this hotel again the next time we are in Rome. We threw our coins into the Trevi Fountain to guarantee our return, which we hope will be soon.

We spent a week at this lovely little “boutique” hotel. Great staff. Khalid so helpful and friendly. Also Connie and Laura. Perfect central location within walking distance of many places we wanted to go, also happening upon unexpected interesting places along the way. We had a comfortable quiet room facing the courtyard. Nice breakfast 7:15-10 am. Would definitely stay there again.

We have stayed here before...7 years ago ....great location...close to almost everything..comfortable rooms ...great breakfast included...this trip we stayed a day before our cruise and had planned three days after the cruise.....Hurricane dorian cut our three days short after the cruise and the owner of the hotel was very empathetic to our situation....she discounted penalties and worked to arrange transportation to the airport....we arrived safely in florida and are currently back to work at a florida hospital that is in the path of dorian The staff at this hotel exceed expectations.....recommend it to anyone

This was a lovely hotel close to a lot of the lovely sites that Rome has to offer. The room was a little small for a family of 4 but it was clean and ok for what we needed. The staff were lovely and really helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel as a good base for a city break. Nice bar just outside too.

The Hotel is centrally located and all sites are within a walking distance. The staff are so friendly and helpful. They were so good to our 8 years old daughter and she easily felt at home. We stayed for 3 days. It is clean and well air conditioned, something very important in the hot days of August.

No comments: good service, clean, and very good place for visiting Rome. When it’s busy in the hotel (as it is right now) the breakfast is a bit messy. Not enough tables so pls don’t bother a bit of waiting. But for the rest: great place to stay!

The hotel location is ideal and walking distance to most of the sights. The staff were really helpful. We were a party of 9 split into 3 rooms. Rooms are clean and air conditioned, not very spacious but everything you need. We enjoyed the continental breakfast before heading out.

The hotel’s location is perfect to explore the city (a few minutes away from Piazza di Spagna and Piazza Navonna). You also have plenty of restaurants around to choose from. The staff was nice, the breakfast is very basic and it has same options every day, but it offers a good start for the day. The rooms are small and have basic amenities as well, but they are clean and the quality of sleep is good (although centrally located, the windows face a backyard: so it is quiet most of the times). Definitely we would recommend the place if you are looking for a decent base to explore wonderful Rome.

We had a wonderful experience at the hotel. The hotel room was spacious and clean. The location is impeccable. More importantly, one of the staff, Khalid, was so pleasant, helpful and welcoming. He gave us great directions and recommendations, and even helped with dinner reservations. During our stay, we had the pleasure of meeting the hotel owner briefly. She brought with her the cutest little dog. My daughter got to play with the dog, and it made her day. We would definitely come back, and would recommend this place.

This was the best experience with a hotel we have had. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean and convenient. When we would come in for the evening the staff would joke with the boys. If we needed directions, they were more than happy to help, since one day we wanted to get some laundry cleaned. They wrote out directions and we found the launderette easily. They also are knowledgeable for restaurants in the area. There is a little cafe right outside (Angelucci's) and their food is excellent. The hotel location is a short distance from the Spanish Steps and the Spagne metro stop is to the left of the steps, therefore Rome was ours for the taking. Close to Vatican City as well (20-30 minute walk). The breakfast is wonderful as well. Definitely recommend to all whom are visiting Rome!
