I loved the Villa Della Fonte! Located in Trastevere, off of the Piazza Santa Maria, the location is ideal. While Trastevere is a bit far from some sights in Rome, it is a great way to feel like you're part of a neighborhood and the nightlife is never wanting. Restaurants are spectacular and reasonably priced.
As for the hotel, I had a single room, which was large and very clean. Every single person who works at the hotel is nice and will talk to you about where to go, what to do, etc. Rarely have I encountered such a helpful and friendly hotel staff. I felt like I was part of their little "family" after 6 nights. Breakfast is included as well--coffee, juice, croissant...on a beautiful terrace. The street is quiet, but only a block away from an extremely active nightlife.
My only complaint would be that the air conditioning isn't as cool as it could be, but the other attributes of the hotel more than made up for this small defect.
I will definitely stay there again the next time I am in Rome!
FYI, I booked the hotel through the lonely planet website and it required a 10% deposit.
- 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
