Aldrovandi Villa Borghese, Rome
Old and totally overpriced!
The ratings for this hotel must be made up. This hotel is old and you find cracks in the walls everywhere. The carpet is old and our room was facing the street which had running a train right in front of it every 20 min. We switched room and the new room smelled wet and moldy. So we switched again. I had to insist of getting a new room. And no point made the staff it easy. Breakfast is ok. This hotel is definitely overpriced and I will not stay there ever again!

Aldrovandi Villa Borghese, Rome
Not worth the money.
The hotel is near a train track and the noise is very loud, and the traffic at that location is heavy. The housekeeper moved my personal items around every time she came into the room. The tub leaked onto the floor every time we showered. It was a very uncomfortable situation.

Nice but tired
It’s a nice but tired hotel. Even though it has that old world charm it still doesn’t rate in the Five star category.
Cheryl, us1 night trip
Aldrovandi Villa Borghese, Rome
They couldn't be more accommodating to myself and my friends. Definitely my first choice next time I'm in Rome

Aldrovandi Villa Borghese, Rome
A magnificent stay
This hotel is our favorite in Rome and we truly look forward to returning each time. From the service at the front desk to the immaculate housekeeping and of course, the beautiful pool area, we can't say enough about this beautiful hotel. The breakfast buffet is by far one of the best we've ever encountered and from two seasoned travelers, that says a great deal. I can't wait until our next visit!
