“Perfect location and hospitable staff”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

Hello! My name is Yana) I have visited Rome in January this year. I chose Borromeo by chance and did not regret! Very nice and cosy hotel! Not even the hotel was that I was impressed with most of all but its staff!!! Gigi and Ricardo!!! They were very polite to me, very hospitable, responsive and always offered me coffee and sweets) I had some problems with my money in Rome( my wallet was stolen while doing shopping), so they supported me, gave me good advice and helped me to spend rest of my stay in Italy with smile on my face and best impressions! Gigi and Picardo are the best hotel employees I have ever met! Next time I will stay only at Borromeo! Because of them!) and very warm and friendlly atmosphere!!!)))

Stayed January 2014, travelled solo

Hotel Borromeo was a short walk from Termini train station, 10 minute walk to the Collosseum, a 2 minute walk to the metro station and actually close to the entire City Center. . We spent 4 nights there. The room is very clean wtih a nice decor. It is small for "american" standards, but we didn't mind because we didn't spend a whole lot of time there. The bathroom was a good size, the water pressure was awesome and shower was big enough for two people ;-)
Excellent complimentary breakfast started at 6:30 a.m. and ran through 10:00 a.m. on the roof top to include various selections of meats, pastries and hot foods.
There is a supermarked across the street and several cafes within the block.Definitely will return to this hotel, as it was moderately priced.

The hotel is really well situated with two metro stations nearby and is at walking distance from the Colosseo. Rooms are clean, well decorated and the hotel is quiet. Special thanks to Gigi at reception, who has been helpful in everything.

We had a great time staying at this hotel. The location was great and many of Romes attractions were within walking distance. It was nice to have an electronic safe and a breakfast in the morning. The best feature though was the service. The front desk was great. Especially Gigi. He was always helpful and gave great recommendations!

Clean, friendly hotel in the heart of Rome. Close to the subway to get around Rome in a hurry. Within walking distance to the Colosseum and Roman forum. Room had its own bathroom, A/C and heater. We had a room on the street side which is very noisy. If you can request a room opposite the Main Street. Breakfast on the roof was great! Good food and a great view.

Room Tip: Opposite the Main Street

For first time Rome visitors looking for a great place to stay, Hotel Borromeo is highly recommended!! My family and I just got back to the US after a memorable W. Mediterranean cruise and chose to stay in this hotel while in Rome for an extended visit. The front desk personnel Bart, Gigi, Alex and Virgilio spoke English well, courteous and all went out of their way to help us in all our needs... city tours, transportation etc to name a few, even serving espresso every time we wanted some. The rooms were newly renovated, bathrooms clean with adequate toiletries and towels, weighing scale for luggages and even a 110 outlet for charging our US cellphones, laptop, iPads and other handheld appliances... and wifi was offered free of charge too, making our stay really comfortable/convenient. Room rates were very affordable (just make sure to book way ahead of your scheduled visit) and accommodations were spacious and clean. The hotel is located on Via Cavour and city sights were within walking distance. Gigi recommended the hop on hop off touring bus company which took us to all the historical sights for a very reasonable price. Restaurants were close by and a wonderful gelateria (ice cream shop) was nearby. Across the street from the hotel was a souvenir/miscellaneous items store where we bought variety of items, bottled water, souvenirs, carry on bags etc. They also arranged transportation to Cittavechia our cruise port on a Mercedes van at a very reasonable rate, as well as our ride to Fiumicino airport on our way back. I will definitely stay again in this hotel and urge future visitors to Rome to stay at Hotel Borromeo.. I want to add that the free breakfast was adequate, just get up within the time slot 7-9 am to get the best food choices. We were never bothered by any train or passerby noises contrary to other claims. ..they made our visit pleasant, comfortable, safe and effortless. I definitely negate all those who claim otherwise...can't find anything bad to say against this hotel. By the way, for those needing a ride to and from the airport , my first choice was Rome Cabs but was fully booked and they recommended Rome Chauffeur...wonderful service on a new Mercedes van, with an excellent rate and a driver fluent in English. You can book with them online too. All in all, our trip to Italy, France, Spain, Monaco and Tunisia was wonderful and memorable and our brief stay in Rome is just as unforgettable, with Hotel Borromeo giving us a great welcome and helping hand!!! Ciao!

Room Tip: We liked our accommodations on the second floor and the elevator was a few steps away.
