Wonderful experience in that very calm and sophisticated hotel in Villa Borghese,
closed to the Spanish Place, the historic center and attractions of Room...
The staff is just very efficiente and provide you the best service you can imagine.
Excellent buffet breakfast.

Room Tip: Beautiful and very calm room on pool...

We stayed here for a couple of nights following a cruise. Our room was not ready when we arrived but was soon made available. The staff and helpful, especially the concierge and the reception people. The rooms are kept to a high standard although I did notice some black mould around the edge of the bath and tiles in our room.

I would not recommend eating at the grill poolside on the lower level. The service is slow and the prices are high and the quality is not very good or attractively presented. We had better meals outside the hotel.

Rome was very hot and it was excellent to be able to come back to the hotel and lay on a sunbed by the pool and also enjoy the swimming pool. Towels are provided.

We were on the top floor at the front so we were not too disturbed by the noise of the traffic. However, I was awoken by the peacocks calling in the early morning.

Breakfast was a different matter. A very good selection, including sparking wine. Plenty of fresh fruit and also cooked food and the plates were warmed. A nice touch. Service was also a little slow in the breakfast room when ordering tea or coffee, everything else was self service. The setting for the breakfast room is good as it overlooks the garden at the back.

It is a nuisance than when you leave your room the electricity goes off but this is quite common in a lot of hotels. It might be worth seeing whether you can remove the charging key from the keyring so that you can leave it in when you leave the room.

We spent 4 nights at The Aldronvandi Villa Borgese and enjoyed every minute of the stay. We were upgraded to a suite, which was lovely and also very quiet. The room was a good size with a lounge area attached, a walk in dressing room/wardrobe area and bathroom. Housekeeping kept the room to a high standard but we were left without face flannels on a couple of occasions.

We were in Rome to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary and upon our arrival the management had left us a bottle of wine and some nibbles complimentary. I thought this was a nice touch. However, no tea or coffee making facilities in the room which I find frustrating as I like a cup of tea first thing in the morning when I wake and this wasn't possible. On another occasion I fancied a cup of tea late afternoon and had to use room service. They were quick to bring the tea but I would have preferred to have the facility in room. A minor grumble though.

The best feature of the Aldrovandi is the pool. It is beautifully maintained as are the surrounding gardens and it is truly an oasis to come back to after a day of sightseeing. We had no issues with the service poolside but only ordered drinks, so can't comment on the quality of the food.

We did, however, have a meal at Oliver Glowig, the Michelin 2* restaurant situated within the hotel. This was definitely Fine Dinning with a price tag to match. Have eaten at other Michelin restaurants though and this compared well, was very enjoyable with excellent staff and food. They made us a lovely cake for our anniversary which was very thoughtful. Oliver Glowig came out personally to greet all of the diners, individually at their table, at the end of the meal.

We used the shuttle bus in and out of Rome every day and found this service excellent. We also got taxis a few times (inexpensive and convenient for getting to the Coloseum for an early morning tour) and used the trams to go to and from the Vatican. The reception staff organised whatever we needed. The reception staff were always very pleasant and helpful.

Breakfast overlooking the pool every morning was very pleasant. The choices on offer at breakfast were good and we found the service excellent.

Would we go back to the Aldrovandi? Yes, without a doubt. I liked the fact it was just outwith the city walls for the peace and tranquility it offered, the pool is a Godsend in the heat of the day, service was excellent, room was lovely and breakfast was super.

We stayed here for two nights at the end of a cruise holiday. The hotel has a stylish reception area and breakfast room and the reception staff were very helpful. Our allocated room was not ready when we arrived but we only had to wait for a short while before we were given another room. The bedrooms are nicely appointed although the electricity supply switches off when the special key is removed from the socket (it is attached to the room door key) so it's only possible to charge phones, camera batteries, etc whilst you are actually in the room. The shower is over the bath and the sides of the bath are quite high so getting in and out of the shower is not easy for anyone with short legs or stiff hips. The base of the bath is also very smooth and slippery when it is wet - a rubber bathmat would be a good safety feature.
We ate in the poolside restaurant, but there was only a limited menu selection at higher prices than in other restaurants we ate at whilst in Italy. Drinks were also expensive (8 euros for a small bottle of water) and the service was very slow and seemed to lack any sort of organisation or direction. We waited for some considerable time before being given a menu and then waited again for a drinks order to be taken, with yet another long wait before the drinks arrived. Even after we had ordered our meals it took an age before the food appeared and then it was a very basic presentation and not anything out of the ordinary that would have justified the price. Whilst we were in no particular hurry, we felt that to spend considerably more than two hours on a meal of two courses and a round of drinks in a restaurant of about 40 covers was far too long.

Room Tip: The roadside rooms are quite noisy. Ask for one overlooking the pool.

We got this room bidding on priceline, it is located on the northern end of the Villa Borghese which is like the central park of Rome.
They run a free shuttle every 30 minutes to the spanish steps which is nice.
The room was a good size, as well as the bathroom.
there is an above ground tram stop right outside the hotel which we took to the vatican.
Not a lot of restaurants within walking distance but the transportation is easy to get anywhere.
We would def stay here again.
