Editorial review:

This lavish hotel located near the Villa Borghese gardens is far from the hustle and bustle of downtown Rome. The pool is incredible, something which has been called rare for the city, and the rooms are large. Some critics felt that its remoteness was a negative aspect, but there's a free hourly shuttle to downtown. There have been recent renovations and a wonderful Neapolitan-Mediterranean restaurant.

Verified Reviews:

  • Free parking - Free shuttle service - Outdated business centre - Expensive internet
  • Nice rooms - Comfortable beds - Good room service - Would stay again
  • Perfect location - Spacious and elegant rooms - Large fitness room - Great variety of room rates
  • Great hotel - Magnificent restaurant - Great outdoor pool - Staff were excellent
  • Very good hotel - Delicious breakfast - Friendly concierge - Shuttle every 30 minutes

Overview

The Aldrovandi Palace is a 5 star hotel situated in the heart of Rome. It was opened in 1899 and since that time the hotel remains one of the most exquisite hotels of the world.

The rooms are spacious and chic; each of the rooms is air-conditioned and has a mini-bar.

Three restaurants of the hotel and a bar will satisfy even the most demanding gourmands. The chef of the restaurant Alfonso Iaccarino is recognized as one of the best Italian masters of culinary art.

If you want to relax, visit an outdoor swimming pool of the hotel. There is also a fitness centre.

The Borghese Gallery is next to the hotel as well as other tourist attractions. The hotel is surrounded by green area which creates tranquil atmosphere in the hotel despite its central location. You should enjoy a walk in the beautiful pine park, the property of the Aldrovandi Palace.

          • Couple
            9.6

            excellent rooms, super friendly staff, very good breakfast, free shuttle service works perfect

            drinks at the pool bar were very expensive

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            The complementary car service down to the spanish steps was very needed as the hotel is away from the town centre but that meant there was no noise at night. The hotel staff were very nice and efficient.

            The shower was very strange and it was in the middle of the bath so that when the shower was on the water was hitting the curtain with force and going out onto the floor, the shower should have been at one or other end of the bath. For the price of the hotel there should have been tea and coffee making facilities in the room, and there was no interactive TV which meant no films on demand. The breakfast was not cooked very well. The bottle beer at the hotel was so expensive avoid.

          • Couple
            7.0

            Pool was a big plus, meaning we could relax after returning to the hotel after sightseeing.

            dining facilities were not great.

          • Couple
            8.2

            Excellent hotel, room (standard) and breakfast. Free and good quality wi-fi internet. Location is good, a nice half mile walk through Villa Borghese park to the closest metro station (Flaminio). The hotel offers a shuttle service to Piazza di Spagna metro, though it begins only 10am (every 30 min until 23pm) and takes only 7 people. It's recommended to book it in advance.

            Shower is excellent, but the temperature oscillates so much.

          • Couple
            8.8

            Room was large and nicely decorated, very comfortable bed and "proper" mattrass. Hotel location is quite and green - overall in noisy Rome this hotel is just excellent to get a nice sleep. Very good breakfast with freshly squeezed juice and champaing. Free parking which is important to consider central Rome garages are full on week days and cost 40 euro per night

            Not very convenient if you have late dinner in the very center of Rome, taxi from Pantheon was 14euro.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Hotel staff at front desk were excellent in making our stay enjoyable. Concierrge was very friendly and helpful. Pool area very relaxing after a busy day touring the city. Breakfast faciliites and food were very good. Shuttle service was excellent as well. Overall very good value for the price.

            Pool staff were somewhat unfriendlly and distant particularly the staff handling the overpriced drinks. Restaurant staff were very stiff and our experience at this overpriced restaurant was not a good one.

          • Family with children
            8.2

            Nice and friendly personnel. Very pleasant stay. Shuttle bus to the centre city. Clean, good reputation and attentive management.

            Food and drinks slightly overpriced

          • Group of friends
            6.6

            Breakfast was amazing. Staff were friendly and very helpful.

            Our room was facing the road and as a result got quiet noisy at peak times. Beds and bed linen were hard and slightly uncomfortable. Not within walking distance of centre it is a 40 minute walk but the shutte bus is extremely convenient. Also to eat and drink at pool area is very expensive.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            The Hotel is really excelent! Great location in the green park, very quet and comfortable. Very comfortable suites, cleaning twice a day. The staff is great! Lovely swimming pool. The room price through Booked.net is very interesting. We recommend the Hotel for all travelling to ROme

            The breakfasts are not very rich, but the staff cooked the dishes you asked for several minutes (free of charge). The restaurant is also not very good. Dishes are expensive, but very small and not tasty. Not for hungry travellers.

          • Single
            6.6

            10 min to the Pizz.Spagna by cab (costs 7-10 eu). Breakfast was excellent, beautiful view over the window, classic music, perfect service.

            Superior room is very poor. The carpet are pretty old and there were no toothpaste/toothbrush/ cotton pads and sweing kit.

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            Pleasant and helpful staff, nice pool area and garden.

            The rooms were a little old fashioned and small. We did not think them good value with comparable hotels.

          • Couple
            9.6

            Hotel is really luxuous. We were on honeymoon and it was perfect. Our room had window view to the pool and a closet. Everything was incredibly clean, new and organized. Breakfast has a lot of options (really... The breakfast table is really big). As hotel is not a walking distance from touristic points of Rome, they provide a shuttle to Piazza di Spagna each 30 minutes and it helps a lot! I would definetly coming back

            At the moment of our check-in room was not ready and we waited a lot but they fixed this problem very well. Other bad point is that internet conection is really bad, not for the speed but because it falls all the time.

            Very nice staff in all departments. Quiet. Nice room.

            Terrible buffet breakfast. Poor quality and expensive grill restaurant.

            The swimming pool and the breakfast and (most) of the staff

            Location is pretty remote from the main action areas in Rome although there is a shuttle that runs to/from Piazza di Spagna on a regular basis and taxi fares even to the Vatican City are no more than about €12. Also it is nice to have the Borghese Gardens on your doorstep - we had never seen them before and we were greatly impressed - it seemed as if all of Rome was enjoying itself there on Sunday afternoon. The place lacks an atmosphere - the lobby is an almost compete dead zone compared to most posh hotels. In contrast the outside bar area and the poolside area nearly have a nice ambience. The terrace of the adjoining 2 star Michelin restaurant shares this area too - a pleasant place to hang out and have a drink or some. Generally genteel types here but our week we had a large bunch of Russians - many very large men with muscled arms and broken noses. They went on a rampage one night in the wee hours and started skinny dipping in the pool and making general mayhem - the staff seem overwhelmed (unsurprisingly) and the Carabineri were called in restore order - not sure we could take all that excitement. Next morning apologies were scant or downright absent which was disappointing (take a bow Mr Daniel) - no doubt the russky dollars were more valuable than our euro-mites - but still bad form from a reputable 5 star joint.

            Good rooms, good clean. There is a swimming pool. Convenient shuttle service to the area of Spain every 30 minutes. A good family holiday. The hotel liked, I would recommend.
