Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love This Hotel

  • A grand hotel next door to Rome’s largest park 
  • It’s walking distance from sights like the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain & the Pantheon
  • The rooftop bar & restaurant offers some of the best panoramic views in the city
  • The stunning bedrooms have free Wi-Fi


The Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese is a grand, old hotel, dating back to the 19th century and oozing with “old-world elegance”, says <i>Fodor’s</i>. Sandwiched between the Spanish Steps and the designer shops on the Via Veneto, it has an enviable location in Tridente, “the most upscale part of Rome”, according to Frommer’s. It makes a great base for sightseeing -- the Trevi Fountain is just 15 minutes away and it’s only a couple of minutes more to the Pantheon. The nearest metro station, Barberini, is a 10-minute walk.

The central position also guarantees jaw-dropping panoramic views of the city’s domed churches and the neighbouring Borghese Gardens from the hotel’s rooftop restaurant, La Terrasse Cuisine & Lounge. Settle down at the adjoining bar for an aperitif as the sun sets, or stay for dinner -- the fine dining menu spans French and Italian classics, and there’s a retractable roof for cooler evenings. In the mornings, a buffet breakfast is served in the palace’s old stables, where artist Caravaggio apparently once spent the night. Hot food and eggs cooked to order are also available, for an additional charge.

The Neoclassical-styled bedrooms overflow with antique furniture and brocade drapes, while the renovated ones (available across all room types, on request) have more contemporary furniture with art deco lines. All are equipped with Bose iPod docks and free low-speed Wi-Fi (there’s an extra charge for faster connections). Many rooms on the upper floors have excellent views over the Borghese Gardens, and the four suites have their own balconies. Although there are no tea- and coffee-making facilities in the rooms, room service is available (extra charge applies). There is also a small 24-hour fitness room.
