Hotel dei Borgognoni
Travel Blogs from Rome
This is my first travel blog and it begins with the most memorable trip of my adult life. My daughter, Abigail, was given the chance to show her step-father Steve and me one of her favorite cities. Having lived there for several months and somewhat fluent in Italian, Abigail planned four wonderful days for us in Rome. She crafted the itinerary that …
It wasn't until after much of our itinerary was set that I learned that we should include the Galleria Borghese. And the morning of our second day in Rome was the best opportunity to make that happen. After an amazing breakfast at the hotel, we took a cab to the Galleria Borghese. Although we had purchased our tickets online before leaving the US, …
I just figured I would update you on what I have been up to since my adventure in Salerno. On Sunday, we went to mass in Salerno at their town's Duomo. It just so happened that there were three babies being baptized at mass. It was really funny because father started saying mass, and one of the couples came running in with their baby five minutes late…. crazy Italians.
After mass on Sunday we decided to return to campus early due to ...
... Steps. After all that walking it as time for a "hop on,hop off" bus to rest our weary legs. We stayed on for one and a half circuits to take us past places we hadn't seen and to get us back close to "home". We sat on the open air top deck of the bus which was great until it started to rain. A quick trip downstairs was necessary until the rain stopped. By the time we got off it was a pleasant walk home dodging the traffic. We had some time to freshen up before going ...
... time I have learned so much, how to eat a wider variety of food without even asking what the ingredients are. Not all has been delicious food but when you are on a budget all you care for is to feed your body. And other times I have been obsessed with food so much i have to eat it 3 days in a row or so.. Anyway, enough about food.
Sometimes I feel like i left last week, and other times I feel like its been months and months. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel dei Borgognoni Rome
This is your best bet for location! The hotel is about three to four blocks from the bottom of the Spanish Steps, you can get there by Metro and walk to the hotel in two minutes or less. Trevi, Pantheon and Navona are very close, as well as shopping Via Condotti. We were in this hotel 3/22-23/04.
Quiet, Comfortable, Convenient
Happily spent six nights here in mid-December, 2003.Our room overlooked a quiet inner courtyard and had an ample, pristine bathroom. Staff is attentive; breakfast is fine; location is superb in the centro storico of Rome without the noise. We renegoitated original booking to corporate rate without problem. A very good trattoria nearby is "Al Caminetto" on Via Nazarenno. Have a wonderful trip.

Stayed five nights late November 2003. Somewhat expensive, but overall worth it. Location is great. Rooms were exactly as reserved (requested terrace rooms seen on web photos). Staff helpful and polite. Quiet, nicely decorated rooms. Breakfast fine, but nothing special. There is a very handy supermarket almost next door. Room service was very good. We would definately stay there again.
Ideal for a stopover
Stayed here in November 03 after reading other reviews from this site.
Quite an expensive hotel, but the location is perfect. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were fine, and most importantly quiet.
The breakfast was a little dissapointing considering the price, but otherwise nothing to grumble about.
Great location, quiet hotel.
We stayed here for three days in November. It is a great location---two blocks from the Trevi Fountain and about five minutes from the Spanish Steps and the Pantheon. The hotel fronts on a one-way alley-sized street and is very quiet, but your taxi probably won't get to the front door unless the driver can follow the maze of very small streets. We had no complaints about the room or the breakfast that is included, but no raves either (we also stayed at the Nazionale and I preferred it, mainly for the larger room and the view of St. Peter's). If you are looking for a good central location, stay here.
Great Hotel, great Location
This was our first trip to Rome. Staying at the Hotel Borgognoni was perfect. The location of the hotel was wonderful, between the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. Easy walk to museums, shopping and wonderful restaurants. The room was quite large. We were expecting much smaller. The bathroom was large and very clean and nice. The included breakfast was delicious. They also had a bar. The staff was extremely helpful and the dinner recommendations and reservations were superb. We will DEFINITELY stay there when we return to ROME.
Excellent hotel & location
Stayed here in August 2003 after reading the other good review on TripAdvisor. Arrived at 8am after a very long flight from Singapore and the hotel were kind enough to check us in early. The room was smallish, but big by Rome standards. Very comfortable and clean, with a good bathroom. The airconditioning was a nice touch being there in the middle of a heat wave.The location is fantastic within easy walking distance of all major attractions. There are also a couple of nice restaurants on the street with good prices. There is also a small supermarket next door to the hotel, making it pretty easy to stock up on supplies.Staff were polite and spoke very good English and were always happy to help with directions.We will certainly be staying here on any visit to Rome A+++
