Hotel Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese, Rome

Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese

The Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese feels more like a boutique property than a chain hotel. With high levels of service and amenities, it boasts a charm that is all its own, perched on the hillside by the extensive Villa Borghese public park and just a short walk to the Spanish Steps below. Inside the decor is classic but contemporary with many modern touches that help to bring the property to life. The highlight though is the roof terrace bar and fine dining restaurant which offers wonderful panoramic views out across the Eternal City to St Peter’s Basilica and beyond.
