Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Central location overlooking one of Rome's most popular attractions, the Trevi Fountain

The Hotel Fontana is named for its distinct location overlooking one of the most famous fountains in the world. Many of the rooms -- make sure to request in advance -- face the fountain, but one negative quality of these rooms is nightly piazza noise. Rooms facing the rear have more quiet, but lack the special views. Guests who choose the back rooms can enjoy the fountain views from the rooftop terrace. The central location in the historic heart of Rome is within walking distance of the Pantheon and the Spanish Steps. There is also a bus stop steps away with access to Vatican City, and the Barberini Metro Station is a short walk away.

  • 34-minute drive to Rome Ciampino International Airport
  • 53-minute drive to Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport
  • Steps to the Trevi Fountain
  • 6-minute walk to the Spanish Steps
  • 6-minute walk to Palazzo Barberini
  • 11-minute walk to the Pantheon
  • 14-minute walk to the Opera House
  • 14-minute walk to the Roman Forum
  • 5-minute drive to the Colosseum
  • 5-minute drive to Santa Maria degli Angeli
  • 9-minute drive to the Baths of Diocletian
  • 9-minute drive to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore
