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.
The Hotel Fontana is located on Piazza di Trevi with views facing the famous Trevi Fountain. A former monastery, this property offers 25 rooms with basic, traditional Italian decor that feels reminiscent of its former monastic days. Guests can choose between rooms facing the fountain, or one of the quieter rooms in the back of the building. Though they are compact, rooms are clean and have hardwood floors, flat-screen TVs, and private en-suite bathrooms. Perks here include the rooftop terrace and lounge along with a free breakfast buffet. Many guests rise early to get the best seats in front of the fountain.
