Steps from Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps, the five-star Sofitel overlooks Villa Borghese park. Featuring 81 rooms, families will want to try a Luxury Room with a double bed and sofa bed or a Prestige Suite with a king bedroom and a separate living area with sofa bed that can also accommodate an additional bed. Families must request additional beds and sofa beds in advance, and there is an extra fee. The standard rooms at the hotel, however, do not sleep more than two. Enjoy the views of Rome from the rooftop alfresco lounge, La Terrasse Cuisine, which is open from noon to 3 p.m. and 7 to 10:30 p.m. for lunch and dinner.

Newly refurbished to a very high standard. Rooms ok for size but lacked storage space. OK for overnight but I don't want to leave my clothes in the suitcase for three nights.
Terrace restaurant very expensive but lovely views. Breakfast outstanding. All staff were excellent, good English spoken throughout.
Location is a big drawback. It sits above the Spanish Steps and then up another steep hill. It's a pretty forbidding climb up from most of the local sights. Also it is on the junction of two one way streets so taxis have to make a circuitous route to get to it. No bus service or Metro close by.
We had a fantastic stay at the Villa Borghese, from September 26-29, 2019! We were in Rome for 3 nights, beginning our 50th Wedding Anniversary trip. The hotel was beautiful, the staff was OUTSTANDING, and our upgraded suite exceptional. The rooftop restaurant was wonderful, and the Breakfast was amazing. We also had a wonderful dinner there.
We have to give a huge thank you to Agostino, Angelo, Ivan, Serena, and Michele. They were so very helpful to us first time international travelers during our stay. Sorry if we missed any of the other staff by name, everyone was great. We will definitely stay at this hotel again. Also, thank you to the General Manager, Edoardo Giuntoli, for everything you and your staff did for us.
