Positive Reviews

The view from the rooftop lounge

While it is described as small, there was no denying that the views from the lounge over to the Trevi Fountains were spectacular, and many guest felt privileged to be dining and drinking in such a spot. This view was perhaps guest's favourite feature of the hotel.

Friendly and accommodating staff

Many guests commend the hotel's staff on a job well done. They were described as very friendly and welcoming, and very professional in dealing with guest's queries and issues.

Very charming building

The building dates from the 13th century, when it was used as a monastery. While it has obviously been renovated many times, guests still seemed to get a sense of the history of the place and found it very quirky and full of character.

Negative Reviews

Extremely small bathrooms

While the rooms also come in for some criticism for being too small, it's the bathrooms that guests seem to dislike the most. The bathrooms for the standard rooms were described as exceptionally small, and of the design that one showers over the toilet and floods the whole room in the process.

Very poor Wi-Fi

It seems that, like many other hotels the world over, the Wi-Fi infrastructure at the Fontana is insufficient to cope with the number of guests accommodated. Many report that the Wi-Fi would often cut out for no particular reason, which they found most frustrating.

Location not to everyone's taste

While all concede that the views of the Trevi Fountain are spectacular, the fact is that it is one of Rome's most popular attractions, and it attracts incredible crowds day and night. Some thrive on this sort of energy, but of course others find it too overwhelming. Guests who like quiet and peaceful surroundings may be disappointed.
