Fontana Hotel Rome Reviews

Great location! Jan 07, 2013
We stayed at the Fontana Hotel for 4 nights in January. We paid an estimate of 100 Euro per night (was a package deal and I can't remember the exact number).

PROS:

*The location is perfect. We walked everywhere from here, Vatican, Colosseum are a little further away, but Piazza Spangna, Piazza Venezia, and the Pantheon are not far. The shopping street Via Corso is two blocks away. Oh, yeah, and Trevi Fountain is OUTSIDE your window.

*The staff is friendly enough and speaks good English. When asked they will help with anything you might need; in our case a call to the airport shuttle for pick-up.

*The room was a typical European size hotel room. Decor was antique, but good. The bed was very comfortable. Plugs were available. Bathroom was small, but sufficient for one person at a time.

*Free Wi-fi, but daily changing password.

*Breakfast was included, but only okay. Nothing to write home about, except about the view! (see pictures)

CONS:

*Noise outside the hotel is a mixture of tourists that are out there looking at the rushing fountain from as early as 8:00am - 01:00am. The sound of the fountain drowns it out, but if you are a light sleeper like me, I suggest earplugs.

*Breakfast room is on the 4th floor without elevator access, that may be an issue for some people.

*Breakfast wasn't great. On the fourth day, they should have thrown out the tomatoes which were starting to grow feet. Also the selection became smaller and smaller from day to day, like they only went to the market once a week.

That being said,

You can find EVERYTHING you will ever need close by.
