I asked myself the question: "Was it ignorance of indifference? Didn't they know or didn't they care?" I found out the answer fairly quickly. But first, let me take you back to the moment that I booked the room. Comfort room? I wanted better. Superior room? Sounded good! Luxury room? Had to be quite something! As I wanted to surprise my wife I went for the extra charge and took the luxury room. Enough space, great view Reality set in during the check-in. Small room with an even smaller (useless) room attached to it. Tiny bathroom (shower in bathtub) and ... the room facing a wall. This couldn't be it. Called reception and asked for a better 'luxury' room. He didn't have any available and suggested that I booked the suite for an extra charge of 250 euros a night. Ignorance or indifference? Clearly indifference. They knew, but they just didn't care. No sorry, no free drink, no better room the next day, not even the obligatory 'did you have a pleasant stay?' when checking out. Pay the bill and go home. Something like that. It's shame really, 'cause Rome was great. The restaurants were fantastic and we left with a smile upon our face. But Sofitel Villa Borghese*****? No thank you. Never again. read hotel review

This hotel has very nice location close to Park Borghese and also few minutes away from Spanish steps. Thia area is very nice and also quiet. As it is located at the top of the hill, the guest can have very nice city view from the room and also very nice view of the Vatican and St Peter's church. read hotel review

    This hotel has very nice location close to Park Borghese and also few minutes away from Spanish steps. Thia area is very nice and also quiet. As it is located at the top of the hill, the guest can have very nice city view from the room and also very nice view of the Vatican and St Peter's church.

  • Room

    We had two connected rooms, one for us and another for our children. I can only say that quality of equipment is really at the very high level. The view fom our rooms practically is very nice, to the spanish steps and the city of Rome.

  • Location

    Few minutes from the hotel there are a lot of interesting places. Regarding museums, very nice villa Borghese and also Galeria Borghese can be visited and i can really recommend it. Tickets for Galleria Borghese shoud be bought by internet reservation because admission to this place is strictly associated with selected time. Also, shopping area in ViaVenetto and also arround Spanish steps is practically located few minutes on foot.

  • Gastronomy

    Restoran is located on the top floor , with perfect view to the city of Rome, even during the day and also during the night. Selection of meals is very good, and service is also very good. We visited this hotel few times and menu in the restorant was always different. Brekfast is served in another restorant and service and food selection is also very good, even for children.
