Aldrovandi Villa Borghese

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 August 2014

If you are looking for a nice hotel away from the hustle and bustle, this is a sweet spot. I was a guest here on business and I must say the hotel has a very high standard of service. Their concierge desk is one of the most helpful I have ever encountered. The location is lovely and the pool area is absolutely stunning. The breakfast each morning is so beautiful you really want to linger and enjoy the atmosphere as long as possible.

We stayed there for 5 nights while visiting Rome in July 2014. It was our first time in that magnificent city.
The hotel is overall great. Everything looks beautiful and they are putting a lot of effort into it.
The swimming pool is very pleasant and the spa is really nice.
This being said, try to avoid rooms with windows on the street as it can be quite noisy. We also had a little issue with a doorman forgetting about us and assigning taxis to other people before us even though we had been waiting for a while.
The location next to the park is really pleasant. In the end, we found the place to be a great value.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the street side - ask for garden side

This hotel is full of history with a beautiful lobby and gardens. Very clean. Could use some upgrades in the rooms and some modernization. Great city hotel, with a wonderful secluded pool. Food was fantastic and transportation is near.

My wife and I stayed at Aldrovandi 4 nights (July 27th -July 30th 2014). It was my first time. I've already stayed in excellent hotel around the world. Aldrovandi was the best experience in terms of location, room, service, food and low profile guests. On the contrary of the other hotels I saw in Rome it's a family hotel. The only thing they may look into is the wifi which is the may improve.

Everything is superb. The hall, the gardens, the pool. A true feeling of Roman vacations while on a business trip. The staff is very kind and willing to help.
The rooms, however are not up to the same standard, and that is where the problems start. I had to get somebody to reconnect the television, the old-fashioned phone had problems, and I never managed to have a correct wi-fi connection. First, I had no conection. After concierge kindly helped and called, I had a weak and slow signal.
The Aldrovandi is perfectly located right by the Villa Borghese.
If it wants to attract business clients, it needs to look at what today's equipment standards are.

Room Tip: don't accept 202: you will end up in a handicapped room where the use of the shower is very comp...

The service is Good and tries to make your stay enjoyable. The pool is Good for a city hotel.

The rooms are fine. Somewhat outdated but nothing to really bother you.

The Reception is friendly and sprake Good English.

All in all It's probably One of the best hotels in town.

When arriving , you become totally happy in a second. Beautiful lobby and a very serene, nice scent.
Staff is very friendly ,And the guests at this hotel are incredibly relaxed.
Breakfast is superb, lunch amazing.
Nice room, very comfy bed and pillows.
The shuttle is a very nice extra, and runs on time, just book in advance. Takes 7 min to go to the Spanish steps.
Pool feels like you are in a private garden. The spa was great, had it all to myself, just go there, even the changing room is amazing.
For my son and me it was a wonderful stay, luxury in a very friendly way !!!
