Historical Traveller Reviews of Borromeo Hotel
The hotel is newly refurnished and we had a lovely room with decorated ceiling, large and very clean. Great bathroom with nice marble. The room had minibar, fridge, private safe, great air conditioning system! and pay tv. We asked for room service at 1am(we were out of lighter!) and the service was fast.
Nice terrace on the top were breakfast is served. Rich buffet with all you can need to start yr day.
We walked from the Hotel to all the most important sights, there are some restaurants in the area, one just in front the hotel is open till late night(very useful!).
We like this Hotel very much, we will come back here again.
great hotel!!from lulud
The Hotel is right in the city center, is completely new and has lovely rooms, clean and with all comforts.
Breakfast( a rich one!) is served on the roof, and you can either stay inside with air conditioning or outside in a small nice terrace.This open space is open until 1am and we enjoyed night time there with a book and a coffee.
Staff is also very friendly and the helped us in many different things.
We will definitly be back in this Hotel!!

What a pleasant surprisefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Yes there is a minor vibration from the subway below, but it wasn't intrusive!
It most definitely is not in a seedy area, it is in the heart of a bustling City.
The rooms we had were small, but VERY clean/comfortable and have all amenities including a quiet air con system, the staff were very hospitable and the location means that all the important sights are within easy walking distance.
Remember that this is a budget hotel, you get what you pay for, but the Borremeo is excellent value for money.
Having read the previous negative reviews I think it is fair to say "when in Rome---" We will return and to this hotel.

Cute and Convenientfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The interior of the hotel is done is lime green and pink. It was spotlessly clean, and clearly there are ongoing attempts to upgrade the facilities. Our room (109) had small rugs over pieces of missing floor tiles, but the bathroom had been beautifully modernized with the best counterspace we had on the trip. Mirrors helped make the room seem even larger.
A nice feature of this hotel is its rooftop breakfast room, featuring a long buffet with a big selection of cereals, fruit, rolls of all types and the usual drinks. Even in late fall, it felt like we were eating in a garden. One side of the room opened to an outdoor area where my husband enjoyed his late afternoon cigar. That rooftop added a lot of room for us to relax in the busy city.
We found the location to be convenient for us, with the Cavour Metro station a block away and the Colosseum a few minutes' walk. The area has lots of restaurants all along Via Cavour and more on the side streets, so we didn't have to go far for dinner.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, arranging tickets to the Villa Borghese Gallery for us as well as having their car take us to the airport on departure. The only surprise was a 10% tax on our room when we paid the bill. We had not been taxed anywhere else in Italy. Perhaps there is a room tax in Rome, but who knows?
I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for a moderate price (E 120/night), convenience, and good service.
This hotel ruined our holidayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We booked a quad room for four adults (even though we were two adults plus 14 and 8 yr old children) to ensure we got space. We were given a standard bedroom from which armchairs, side table etc were removed to accommodate the two cot beds. There was no floorspace left. Forced to upgrade to a "suite" for an extra €100 per night we were given a spacious room but unfortunately adjacent to the hotel and on the ground floor. The noise of the traffic on Via Cavour was constant and unbareable. The metro runs under the hotel so the beds vibrated each time a metro passed under us. We did not get any sleep during our stay. Finally the towels were gray and threadbare, the bathroom did not have a shelf for toiletries and clothes storage space was limited.

I think I got a bargain and was pleased with our visit.
Top Local Tips for Rome
The Good and Bad of Rome If you walk down Via Cavour ( down toward the Forum) there is a wonderful outdoor spot. Ristorante Impleriale has just the BEST Food and Service at a fair price! Frederica was our server both nights and she was excellent. It is perfectly located near the Colosseum and Forum. If you are watching your dollars, then this is the place for a great meal. The best Value we found during our 5 days in Roma. NOW for a place we suggest you AVOID! THE CANOVA Caffe near the Vaitcan. CAN YOU SPELL RIP OFF in large letters. 3 Pannini sandwiches and 3 soda's that normally cost between 14 -18 EURO's all over town,, came to over 37.00 EURO's at this place. When the waiter tells you that he is going to give you a special price... WATCH OUT! It is on the Via della Conciliazione. The staff was overbearing and pushy, not to mention they thought it was cute to keep hitting on our daughter all during lunch. In our opinion this Cafe really is a place to avoid.
Terravision Terravision is a coach which provides transport between Ciampino airport and Termini Station (direct). It can be booked at airports in the UK and also on arrival in Rome. It's a really easy way of getting to the centre of Rome, and only costs 8 euros each, or I think it was 14 euros for a return ticket. We booked just one way (into Rome) then booked our return ticket separately the day before we left, from the Terravision staff who are situated around the Termini station. The coach is really frequent and is timed to coincide with the flights, so there will always be one to get you there on time.
