Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese

Via Lombardia 47, Rome, Latium, 00187, Italy

Set in a refurbished 1902 Victorian palace, the Hotel Sofitel—which has a long-standing good reputation with business travelers—exudes old-world elegance with modern-design sensibility. The hotel is cleverly situated on a quiet street between the hot spots of Via Veneto and the Spanish Steps. Guest rooms are decorated in rich tones and whimsical patterns of stripes and floral prints and feature amenities such as Hermès toiletries, Bose stereo systems, and iPhone docks. Their rooftop restaurant, La Terasse Cuisine and Lounge, is the perfect place to watch the sun set over the city.
