Aldrovandi Villa Borghese
Ranked #58 of 1,268 Hotels in Rome
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 November 2011

During 2011 I stayed at the Aldrovandi Palace on 4 separate ocassions. Mainly for business and each time I had a wonderful experience. The staff are extremely helpful and welcoming, and each time I came back I felt like I was coming home. The rooms are large and spacious, great bathrooms (with separate shower), nice pool (perfect to cool off in on a hot summer day). I tried the starred restaurant on one stay (which lived up to its reputation as one of the best in Rome), but frequently ordered room service (portions on the small side, but delicious). Breakfast is top notch. All in all, this is a great hotel with a staff that goes out of its way to make your stay a memorable one. I also like the fact that the hotel is in a quiet area and next to the Villa Borghese - would walk through the park to get to where I had to go (great way to start the day).

fast, friendly service from checkin to checkout. Upgrades granted almost always with breakfast staff friendly and courteous. Never noisy. Have a cappuccino ! Villa Borghese right across the street and a 15 minute walk to the top of Via Veneto. Excellent value if you book a couple of weeks ahead.

Room Tip: just ask...

A fine, comfortable hotel with courteous and very helpful staff. Our rooms were quiet and spotlessly maintained. The breakfast was excellent and catered for every conceivable taste.
For some the distance from the city centre might be a disadvantage, but others will appreciate the setting on the edge of the Borghese Park. Anyway the hotel runs a free shuttle service to the Spanish Steps. We spent 4 nights there as a family and it was a very happy experience.

We stayed here for 4 nights as a family and we all loved this hotel. In a nice, quiet area but a half hourly courtesy shuttle takes you to the Spanish Steps in the centre in 15 minutes or so. Some people have criticised this but we found as long as you remember to book the return you are fine! Beautifully appointed rooms with marble bathrooms. Very good breakfasts. Excellent staff. We will return!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the gardens are quieter.

All aspects of our stay at the Aldrovandi were excellent - from the elegant and spacious rooms, the helpful and accommodating staff to the delicious breakfast. The location on the Borghese Gardens means that the setting is peaceful yet still only a short drive from the centre of Rome - or a leisurely walk through the park. Well worth a return visit.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the hotel gardens and pool are particularly peaceful.

the hotel is well located next to Borgese Villa park, and 5-minute cab drive to the city center (Paizza del Spagna and Piazza del Popolo). The hotel has a free shuttle that leaves every 30 minutes, which is an excellent arrangement. i had two connecting rooms which are good for the family. Rooms are clean, traditional in style, cleaned well. Molton Brown toiletries.
The staff is friendly and speaks English.
You will find most of the TV channels at most world languages.
Breakfasts are superb.
One thing to look out for is air conditioning which is switched off in late autumn. make sure you ask for the room that faces the courtyard, otherwise you will find it noisy with having to open your windows.

Room Tip: see my comments above - ask for the courtyard facing room.

Early autumn short trip to one of the great cities.
5 star elegance here that some might find 'traditional' in style - but that I liked, as it had not succumbed to a 'contemporary' makeover. Quality finishes throughout.
The main plus point of Aldrovandi Villa Borghese, in it's park setting 5 minutes Cab ride from The Spanish Steps, is it's staff. The people there are first rate and service exemplary.
Reception, through to room maids: all deserve a mention.
Breakfast is absolutely civilised - and the room elegant & very well run; a fine start to the day.
A final thanks to Oliver Glowig and his team in the restaurant - fine dining par-excellence. A special occasion meal certainly, but gourmands should note - very good cooking here!

Room Tip: Poolside rooms quieter. However frontside do have triple glaze so the road noise was minimal and did...
