The Tribune Hotel is a newly renovated hotel, which opened in September 2016. This glamorous property is on the edge of Rome's Villa Borghese gardens. It is surrounded by shops and restaurants in an upmarket neighbourhood that is popular with celebrity tourists.
The hotel is just across the street from the Villa Borghese, where there are over 200 acres of gardens to explore. It is also home to the Borghese Gallery (open Tuesday-Sunday), with a collection of world-class art and sculpture collected by Cardinal Scipione in the 16th century -- Lonely Planet says, "if you only have the time (or inclination) for one art gallery in Rome, make it this one". The Spanish Steps, which reopened in September 2016 following a 1.5€ million renovation, are a 20-minute walk from the hotel. Two bus lines run by the hotel, and the nearest Metro station (Barberini) is less than a 15-minute walk away.
The hotel serves a buffet breakfast, and there is a bar for cocktails and coffee. A rooftop restaurant and a gym are due to open by early 2017.
The chic rooms have a monochrome colour scheme and a Nespresso coffee machine. Guests get free Wi-Fi and the contents of the mini bar (soft drinks, water and a snack) are free on arrival.
