The Aldrovandi Villa Borghese is located within Rome’s most upmarket residential area, between the green expanse of the Borghese Gardens, the historical Valle Giulia and the Borghese Gallery. Wake to strolls through the surrounding greenery before heading in to wander Rome's famous piazzas, palazzos and Roman sights. As such, the hotel also offers a peaceful retreat away from the crowds, yet still offers easy access to many of the city’s highlights. There's even a courtesy car that will bring you the five short minutes to the Spanish Steps.
This grand 19th century villa is dressed beautifully in ivory marble and dripping chandeliers. As a former convent, it's set on its own private park of colourful vegetation – a sight that many of its rooms take full advantage of. Otherwise, you'll enjoy views over the Borghese gardens or the area's prestigiously historic villas. Interiors are equally lavish, featuring oversized drape curtains, rich fabrics and considered colour schemes. Upgrade for marble bathrooms and extravagant suites, host to king beds and Bang & Olufsen luxuries
Across four dining options, Aldrovandi is a tour de force of culinary excellency. Its standout offering is the Assaje whose Mediterranean flavours are influenced by chef Andrea Miglaccio, whose cooking has earned two Michelin stars. For more relaxed dining, head to the Grill for a range of Italian specialities. It’s especially welcoming in the colder months for its warm fire. The American Bar too, aside from its excellent cocktails, offers a superb dolce vita afternoon tea, accompanied by freshly baked delights from the resident pastry chef. You can also enjoy an aperitvo in the garden bar, surrounded by colourful blooms and delicate shade.
Visit the hotel’s La Mer Spa for exclusive skincare and body treatments across a range of massage rooms. The sauna, steam baths, thalasso mini-pool and private hairdresser's parlour provide further chance to unwind after a day spent seeing the sights of the Eternal City. As does the outdoor pool and state-of-the-art fitness suite. In terms of tech, you'll have complimentary use of iMacs and iPads along with the high-speed WiFi.
