    Best Service in Europe

    If I could rate the service 6/5, I would. Of all the hotels we stayed during our Euro trip, this hotel has the best service. From the reception to the porter to the waitresses in the restaurant, they're the best. They gave us recommendations on where to go and where to eat even before we asked. We had lunch at the 6th floor restaurant that has a great view of St. Peter's (because the hotel is located high up the hill). The waitress there was great at explaining the food on the menu.

    The only downside is returning to the hotel from sightseeing requires you to walk uphill from the Spanish Steps for about 10 minutes which could be a problem for people who get tired easily. but it was no big deal to us.

    Just a step to the spanish steps


    In a quiet neighborhood this freshly renovated hotel is quite a gem! Your living in the middle of rome and you can strole to all the well known places. And if you are tired take a cab - they are not expensive - to go back to the very nice decorated rooms with a lovely bathroom. The stuff is very helpful.

    A lot more than a four star!


    We have recently come back from Rome where we stayed at the Sofitel for 3 nights. The hotel more than exceeded our expectations. We took our 15 month old daughter with us and the staff learnt her name the first day and remembered all of us by our first names throughout the stay. The buffet breakfast is excellent, the staff couldn't be nicer. The rooms are very nice and beautifully decorated. The location is also great given that you are withing walking distance to Rome's major attractions but away from the noisy Via Veneto where most 5 star hotels are. We had a view of the Villa Borghese and we were sad to leave- Annalisa at the front desk was fantastic and everyone else went above and beyond to satisfy our needs. Having stayed at 5 star hotels in the past, I can only say that this one is very close to being a five star.



    went for the may bank holiday with my girlfriend and loved it. first time in rome and it certainly will not be my last the hotel was great the staff great the location great, but do bear in mind the 20 odd mile trip to the hotel from the airport, apart from that if you want to have a lasting impression of rome stay at the sofitel. sofitel france good, sofitel roma better. 4 star. more like a supernova!!!!!!!!!

    Fantastic Hotel, Great Location


    We had a wonderful 3 night stay during February at the Sofitel. Room was extremely clean and large, with a beautiful view of the Villa Borghese gardens. Safe location and can easily get to all the major sites by walking. Staff was very helpful and even gave us umbrellas when it was raining! Breakfast was diverse and you had your choice of cheeses, cereal, fruit, pastries and lots more. Definitely worth the price for convenience, safety and comfortability. I would definitely stay here again, the Sofitel really made our long days a great place to come back to in the evening.

    Fabulous rooms


    Stayed in one of the top floor suites in the off season at a greaaaaaat rate that we negotiated on the spot. Fablous views of the Vatican from our huge private outdoor terrace ( about 900 square foot) with lounges, tables and chairs. Beautiful baths with lots of marble and wonderful robes, slippers, and soaps. The perfect place to relax and indulge yourselves in Rome. We can't understand why this hotel ever has vacancies!

    Not the best Sofitel ever


    Having stayed at other Sofitels I was really looking forward to this one. Not that much wrong with it but I just can't get as worked up as the other reviewers. Good location, nice staff, lovely views from roof top terrace. Room nice but not wow - even though we had a very spacious balcony!! Breakfast certainly not the best I've had but pastries were lovely. All in all a nice 4 star hotel but definatley not the 5 star as one of the other reviewers said. If you don't require a 5 star then it might be the one for you.



    My husband, daughter & I spent 4 nights at Sofitel Roma in late September. This is a terrific hotel in a terrific location, a stone's throw from Via Veneto and another stone's throw from the Piazza di Spagna. The extra bed requested for my daughter was in a separate room from the main room and it also came with a TV! They were rooms that you looked forward to coming back to after spending a day walking the streets of Rome. Staff and doormen were always quick to assist. Having stayed in many 5 star hotels, this hotel delivered itself on a 5 star level and not 4 star as rated. Will definitely return.



    What a wonderful hotel. The rooms are REALLY soundproof, clean, the bathrooms AWESOME, the breakfast very good, and the staff helpful. I did not find one negative thing concerning this hotel. My luggage did not arrive on the flight and the front desk did all they could to assist me in getting someone from the airline to deliver it. It was great!

    Great hotel, great location


    Great hotel, in a lovely location. Charming room, and helpful staff.

    Would definitely stay there again.

    A peach of a hotel


    5 star hotel masquerading as a 4 star. Well sited in road off the Via Veneto. Walking distance to main sites. (Recommend Metro from Barberini to stop for Vatican and perhaps walk back into the City Centre). This is a gracious and charming hotel with a comfortable lounge, bar and library! My deluxe room included a separate sitting area and gorgeous bathroom complete with Roger & Gallet toiletries, bathrobes and slippers. Nothing was too much trouble. Early morning tea tray arrived FOC. Presented with voucher for complimentary glass of champagne or favourite tipple on check-in. Wonderful American breakfast in charming basement restaurant. Ate out both nights in restaurants recommended by delightful Emmanuella running the bar. Check for good off season rates, as little as EUR200.00 per room per night inc breakfast. Great hotel offering good service and attention to detail.

    Full Day trip on the outskirts of Rome

    A travel blog entry by drdave810 on Mar 16, 2015

    Today we woke up early for a full day bus trip with a small group to the outlying town of Tivoli, about 35 minutes from Rome. Here is where much of the most expensive Travertine stone comes from, and we saw quarries and storage areas everywhere. It's kind of industrial out here.

    Once we arrived at the Villa, it's a mix between a huge park …

    An easy day visiting the Borghese Gallery

    A travel blog entry by drdave810 on Mar 15, 2015

    Today we had what is probably our first "easy" day on vacation - without too much touring or walking around Italy.

    After a great breakfast at the Hotel, we made our way to the Borghese Gallery, which was the art gallery for the extremely wealthy and powerful Borghese family, and set apart from their Villa. Surrounding the Borghese Gallery …

    Vatican and St. Peter's

    Today we had our 4.5 hour extended Vatican Museums Tour with time spent in the Vatican Museums, the Pinecone Courtyard, St. Peter's Basilica, the Sistine Chapel and our tour had special access to the Bramante staircase. The special part of this tour was the Bramante Staircase, which is not normally open to the public.

    First full day in Rome

    A travel blog entry by drdave810 on Mar 13, 2015

    After the train ride last night, we checked into the hotel and had a little snack at the hotel restaurant. After a good nights sleep on some extremely firm (but comfortable) beds, we got up early the next morning to enjoy the hotel's provided breakfast and get ready to meet our tour guide for the Angels and Demons tour.

    The tour started …
