Nice hotel in posh part of Rome

Pros: The staff, quietness, rooftop bar.
Cons: The free wifi and cable service needs to be improved.
Location: Nice neighborhood to stroll in, especially walking through the wonderful Villa Borghese. The hotel and surrounding areas offer great views of Rome.
The hotel staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The hotel itself was very nice and the room was comfortable and well appointed. The hotel is located in a very posh part of Rome, with tony restaurants all around and is adjacent to the wonderful Villa Borghese and near the Spanish steps. It is definitely in a quieter part of Rome, perhaps not the best bar hopping if that's what you're looking for. The hotel rooftop bar, however, has an incredible view with amazing sunsets and a nice, mid-sized terrace area. The drinks are excellent, albeit pricey. I was very disappointed with the "free internet" service - the wifi was hardly usable from our room, with a pay-wifi service available for upgraded internet speed. However, after paying what we did for the room, decent wifi should have been standard. The cable tv service was also spotty and many channels either did not work or would go in and out of service. There was some noticeable wear in certain parts of the hotel, but nothing too egregious at all.

Good location!

This is a boutique hotel in a good location with every amenity which includes free Wi-FI. The staff is wonderful and all were very friendly, helful and courteous. I can not say enough about the wonderful staff. The room was nice but smaller and it was clean, comfortable and beautfically decorated. The hotel is in walking distance from the Spanish Steps, the Borghese Garden, restaurants and shops. I would highly recommend this hotel!!

All-around, Great!

Excellent hotel. Great location to both walk and take public transportation. Beautiful room, friendly and accommodating staff, and a first rate restaurant on the 7th floor with an exceptionally good food and a terrific view of Rome.

Excellent hotel if a little out of the way.

Pros: Quiet
Cons: Nothing close
Size of room, level of service and comfort are above par for Europe generally. If you want somewhere that is quiet and a little out of the way in Rome but still walking distance to subway and other transportation (about 10-15 minutes), this may be the place for you. While it is not inexpensive and you can get cheaper, you probably won't get better at their prices. If you want to be more in the middle of the action and close to everything, you will probably have to pay more and get less value in terms of room size, comfort and amenities.

Hotel Sofitel Villa Borghese

The front desk staff was very friendly and extremely helpful, The rooms were very comfortable especially the oversized king size bed. The only complaint breakfast should be gratis not 25 euros for coffee,juice and toast.

Overall very nice, but with some reservations

Room was lovely and very quiet. View from room and from gorgeous roof top terrace extended over greenspace and then the entire city. Same view as from the Hassler, but even higher up the hill. Staff very helpful and friendly, with good English spoken. Beautiful decor. Breakfast was not included, and would have been $80 US for two. Fortunately there are good alternatives in the neighborhood, with several coffee bars, a pastry shop, a wonderful fruit store, and even an underground supermarket in the passageway between the Via Veneto and the Villa Borghese. Several good restaurants within a block or two much more reasonably priced than the hotel restaurant. These include Vladimir (three course dinner with wine for same price as hotel breakfast, Aurora 10 for great seafood, and Le Chiacchiere, about 1.5 blocks the other side of Via Veneto on Via Sicilia (continuation of Via Lombardia). One side of the mattress in Room 505 was terminallly saggy and should long since have been replaced in a hotel of this overall quality. While the neighborhood is great, it is a bit far from major tourist sites and without good public transportation. Every time we got into a cab it was 9 or 10 Euros per ride. Even with these reservations, though, on balance we liked the place and would consider staying there again.

Worth it for a first trip to Rome

From other reviews, I knew it would be better than average and knew the price would be better than average too. Excellent room, great staff, nice breakfast, good location on a quiet street yet an easy walk to the restaurants at Via Veneto or Trevi Fountain or Spanish steps. It was a nice oasis to come back to after a full day of sightseeing. We could have stayed at a less costly place but you get what you pay for and the Sofitel Rome was worth it.

Great hotel!

We just returned from a 3 night stay at this great hotel... convenient to lots of sights but just off the beaten track in a quiet street - breakfast was pretty good and quite ample but too many ""poached"" fruits, not freshly prepared; room was really handsomely furnished and bath was attractive (shower seems to leak some onto the floor) - highly recommend!
