We stayed here in May for 4 nights. The hotel's strongest plus is its location as you are in the heart of a lovely area of Rome where there is plenty of life and character. It was slightly noisy in the square nearby at night but that didn't bother us. It was more than made up for by the number of places to eat nearby and the ability to walk to many of the major sights.We walked to the Vatican, the Coloseum, Piazza Novona, Trevi etc from here.We are happy little wanderers!
The hotel tself is small, only 5 rooms, so you don't get public areas and much contact with other guests apart from breakfast on the terrace, which is very pleasant if the weather is good enough. The breakfast itself is a little basic, like many in Italy, and needs to be chosen the previous night but that is a minor niggle from someone who likes a big and varied breakfast-and I know that many others aren't so bothered.
Everything is clean and comfortable and the staff are helpful. All in all a very pleasant stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Villa della Fonte awaits for you in a typical eighteenth century palace, with a fabulous terrace and its breathtaking view and with all the best services you can wish for. Johann Wolfgang Goethe once said: For only in Rome can one prepare oneself for Rome: and he was right. Even better if done at Trastevere – we dare to add – the most authentic neighborhood of this city. With its wonderful squares and typical alleys, it has always been the true beating heart of the city and not only because of its central location. From craft shops to charming squares and fountains, masterpieces of the finest art, till you reach the typical Roman “Trattorie”. Surrounded by all this is Via della Fonte d’Olio, typical alley in Trastevere not far from the fascinating Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere. Within all the Hotels and the Guest Houses of Rome, Villa della Fonte has an enchanting and privileged location. In the heart of Trastevere it’s only a two minute walk from Trams and Buses that will easily take you to the most beautiful and famous places of our city: Colosseo, Fori Imperiali, Piazza di Spagna, Piazza Navona, Via Veneto, Fontana di Trevi and many others. All places are within reach even on foot. Staying at Villa della Fonte is no doubt the best oportunity to explore this magical and historical roman world. ... more less
