Hotel Fontanella Borghese cita una targa di ottone posta su una colonna all’ingresso dello storico Palazzo appartenuto ai Principi Borghese, nella omonima piazza proprio di fronte al già famoso Palazzo Borghese. Ancora pochi passi e appena nel cortile sembra di entrare in altri tempi, di fronte a noi una statua che ci dà il benvenuto e ci invita a salire le ampie scale fino al secondo piano, oppure utilizzare il comodo ascensore proprio posto ai suoi piedi. Entrando nell’albergo si ha come la sensazione di entrare a casa propria, la reception è accogliente, quasi informale e il personale ti riceve non solo come cliente ma anche come ospite. Simpatica la scala a chiocciola che troviamo sulla destra e che conduce ad alcune camere poste al piano sovrastante. I divani ubicati nelle varie stanze di passaggio che attraverso corridoi conducono alle camere ubicate su tre lati del palazzo, servono a conferire ancora maggior calore all’ambiente. Gli ospiti hanno a disposizione 31 camere, recentemente rinnovate ed arredate elegantemente. Al risveglio, la prima colazione viene servita nella apposita sala che con i caldi arredi e fragranti sapori del buffet fanno davvero vivere una bella esperienza prima di iniziare una giornata di lavoro oppure di shopping nelle strade limitrofe come via Condotti autentico tempio della moda o magari iniziare un tour per la città proprio dalla vicina Piazza di Spagna con la sua maestosa e famosa scalinata di Trinità de’ Monti.
Da “IL GIORNALE”
IL Fontanella Borghese, in uno storico palazzo appartenuto ai principi Borghese, primo condominio di Roma, deve il suo aspetto attuale al famoso architetto Luigi Canina. Ristrutturato nel ’98 le sue camere sono datate di ogni comfort pur mantenendo l’impronta familiare voluta dalla padrona di casa.
Da FROOMMER’S REVIEW
Close to the Spanish Steps in the exact heart of Rome, this hotel surprisingly remains relatively undiscovered. Much renovated and improved, it has been installed on the third and fourth floor of a palace dating from the end of the 18th century. The building once belonged to the princes of the Borghese family, and the little hotel looks out onto the Borghese Palace. It lies within walking distance of the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, and the Piazza Navona. The location is also close to Piazza Augusto and the Ara Pacis. In the midsize bedrooms, plain wooden furniture rests on parquet floors, and everything is in a classical tradition, comfortably modernized for today’s travellers. Half of the bathrooms come with tubs, the rest with showers. The staff of the front desk is one of the most helpful in central Rome.

Dalla GUIDA ROMA HOTELS
Just a few minutes walk from the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon and Piazza Navona and just around the corner from the designer shopping district, this newly restored hotel is located on the second floor of a historic villa, which once belonged to the Borghese Princes.
Walk through the archway into the courtyard with its honey-coloured walls, and you will immediately feel the atmosphere of this elegant and very tastefull small hotel. The owner has spared no expense in the renovations, using the best of materials, from beautiful marble for the floors to the exquisite curving wrought iron staircase, winding upwards from the foyer. Even the walls accommodate the lovely water colours of a local roman painter.
We can honestly say that this is a pearl amongst Roman hotels and we are thrilled that our clients also like it and constantly compliment FONTANELLA BORGHSE on the friendliness of its staff.
Er ist der berühmtesten Adelspaläste Roms. 1580 erbaut, diente er der mächtigen Familie Borghese über Jahrhunderte hinweg als Stadtresidenz. Im ehemaligen Gästehaus der Familie gleich vis-à-vis liegt unser Hotel. Der Eingang befindet sich versteckt im Hinterhof, flankiert von Palmen und einer Marmor-Diana. Im zweiten Stock des 500 Jahre alten Hauses tut sich dann enie großbürgerliche Zimmerflucht auf. Cinzia Pighini – eine lebhafte, löwenmähnige Römerin wie aus dem Bilderbuch – hat auf zwei Etagen ein kleines Hotel eingerichtet und umsorgt ihre Gäste mit fröhlicher Anteilnahme, herzlichen Umarmungen und perfekten Englischkenntnissen. Eine eiserne Wendeltreppe verbindet die beiden Stockwerke miteinander; sonnengelbe Stoffe, Türrahmen aus altem, gemaltem Marmor-Imitat, Kristallüster und Wandteppiche strahlen Wärme und E leganz aus. Die Zimmer sind eher klein, aber mit Stil und schönen Stoffen gestaltet. Entzückend ist die Nr 205, ein Eckzimmer mit Grand Lit und einer Fensterbank, auf der man sitzen und das Treiben in der Gasse beobachten kann.

The reasonably priced Fontanella Borghese is a secluded hotel in the heart of the most glamorous and romantic part of Rome. Ring the doorbell and you will be ushered into a small courtyard, complete with statue, where a tiny lift whisks you up to reception. The rooms are a decent size, its furnishing still look new and the bathrooms gleam. Within a 10 minutes-walk lie the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona and the Campo de’ Fiori. And, of course, Via Condotti, where the shoppers at Prada, Gucci and Fendi are as fascinating as the objects on sale. The area is also full of atmospheric restaurants serving up delectable Roman food. The hotel meets three vital romance requirements; huge, sublimely comfortable beds; breakfast in your room at no extra cost; and a fully stocked mini-bar. The courtyard rooms are breezy and quiet, and the very cool, friendly desk staff – who don’t flicker an eyebrow if you emerge from your room at 1pm – make excellent recommendations for restaurants and places to visit.

Roma è una città affascinante, ricca di sorprese, qualche volta troppo sfacciata, direi unica!
La scelta degli hotel è infinita, io ho avuto la fortuna di soggiornare in questo albergo molto accogliente. La posizione è fantastica, nel cuore di Roma a due passi da Piazza di Spagna.
Una vera chicca, il personale è cordiale, la pulizia e la cura dei dettagli eccellente.
Ottimo sia per vacanza che per lavoro.
delizioso hotel in una magnifica posizione,pulito e discreto,arredato con gusto e con un buon rapporto qualità-prezzo;Servizio accogliente ,attento ed efficace.Prima colazione buona,con irresistibili dolcetti,La presenza attenta della Proprietà dà una luce tutta speciale alla qualità dell Hotel!Ottimo restauro del palazzo che ospita l'albergo.
Siamo stati ospiti del Fontanella borghese per tre giorni, con la nostra piccola Agnese; struttura romantica e accogliente, personale attento alle nostre esigenze e soprattutto a quelle di nostra figlia (5 anni); ci siamo sentiti "a casa", ma in una location da sogno!!! Posizione ottima, vicino a Piazza di Spagna!
This was a fantastic little boutique hotel which truly became our home away from home during our recent 5-day stay in Rome. The location was perfect, being only a few minutes walk from the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon and Piazza Navona. Despite being only a few steps from the bustle of the v. Condotti v. del Corso, it opens off a relatively quiet little piazza which always felt pleasantly removed from the tourist crowds. It is also right beside Piazza s. Lorenzo which features one of Rome's best pasticherrias, quickly to become our favourite! The hotel is located on an upper floor and accessed via a charming private courtyard and marble staircase (or small lift). The decor is homely and inviting, the rooms simple but spotlessly clean and well serviced. The staff were wonderful : the owner (Cinzia) personally arranged bookings for the Villa Borghese when we arrived and went out of her way to make our stay special. The reception staff were friendly, always helpful (even with unusual requests) and spoke perfect English. The staff recommendations for places to eat and drink were right on the mark. We particularly enjoyed the breakfasts provided each morning where the food was plentiful, fresh and delicious - and staff always eager to offer another coffee or hot cup of tea. As a base from which to explore the old city of Rome, this has to be the perfect choice of hotel.
This was our fourth stay in the hotel and we weren't dissapointed. The location and the staff are fabulous. Yes the accommodation may be modest and the lift is small, but the rooms facing the courtyard are quiet and more than functional. This is Rome after all if you want classic five star in a big global chain this isn't it. But if you are in pursuit of a boutique hotel managed hands on by the owner and supported by charming, helpful and cheerful front desk staff who are competent at speaking English, then consider this hotel. The breakfast which is served in a delightful room is excellent and more than adequate to provide the fuel you need for your daily Roman activities. The location is in our view one of the best in Rome with easy access to major attractions, great shopping and food. Yet it is tucked away in a relatively quiet spot alongside some of the most beautiful piazzas in the city. Free access to wi fi is available in the rooms and the front desk staff will enthusiastically help you plan a day of sightseeing that takes you off the standard tourist tracks. I have read in other reviews that the the staff were rude - I have never encounter bad attitude in this hotel. Highly recommended.

My husband, my son, and I spent four days in Rome last week and were so glad to have found this hotel on Trip Advisor! The Fontanella Borghese is truly a gem because of its location, price, and the charm of the property and the people who work there! The desk staff were very friendly and were fluent in English-a helpful plus. They suggested terrific restaurants, reserved taxis for us, and helped us book train tickets. When we return to Rome, we won't look for different accommodation!
We'd originally booked with a B&B. But when we arrived there, the host informed us he had double booked and we were out of a room! We found Hotel Fontanella Borghese through Frommer's and were happy that they had a room for 3 nights! So we hauled ourselves over only to be told that they had made a mistake. They didn't have a room for us that night, but could take us the next 2 nights. But not to worry! They'd find us something. They told us to go freshen up and relax.
A few minutes later, they'd found us an apartment in the same building complex and negotiated a rate with the owner. We could stay there that night and then move into the hotel the next day. The hotel took care of cleaning the apartment, outfitting it with the hotel sheets and toiletries, and we could take advantage of the hotel's wifi and breakfast!
Other hotel pros:
- location. It's near the Spanish Steps and Via del Corso, but also close to great smaller, local boutiques and restaurants.
- great breakfast!
The room itself was a bit small, and the bathroom a bit dark. But the staff really set this hotel apart for us!

This was our first trip to Italy, and of the five hotels we stayed at, north to south, this was by far the best. The staff and owner were amazing! They were friendly, patient and most helpful in answering our many questions and meeting all our various needs. The hotel is beautiful, located on the 2nd floor (3rd floor by US standards) and is accessable via a staircase or by way of a small elevator). Centrally located in the historic area, we walked to everything without a problem, and had the comfort of feeling safe morning to night. There is too much to say about the hotel and each person, from the owner to the night staff, that I could go on and on. In short, it was worth every penny of my money (I guess I mean every Euro) and is a place I would absolutely stay at again when I return to Rome - there is no need to look elsewhere. I did a lot of research in picking my hotels, and everything I read supporting this hotel was spot on.

We spent 5 nights in late September at this wonderful albergo. The staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable (especially Khaled and Andrea). The restaurants they recommended were some of our favorites. We spent 2 weeks all over Italy. The hotel is centrally located and easily walkable to all the attractions. The buffet breakfast was scrumptious.
We would definitely stay here again on our return to Rome!
