Hotel Vilòn

Hotel Vilòn

Hotel Vilòn was originally a 16th-century residence belonging to Palazzo Borghese, which the family rented out. Commissioned by Princess Adelaide Borghese de la Roche Foucauld, the building later became a school for underprivileged girls. The princess herself was a refined lady of generous and modern character. Her mission was to give the girls a good education and a better future. On May 13, 1938, the school was permanently donated to the Daughters of the Cross, who are the sole owners to this day. Through careful restoration, the old splendor and Art Deco style of the house was brought back to life, but complemented with a contemporary look and with intimate and cozy furnishings.

About the rooms

The rooms are spacious and bright. They are sumptuously decorated in a retro style with attention to detail, warm colours, special artworks and accessories. The marble bathrooms have a rain shower.

Our favourite room

Our favourite rooms are the Charming Garden room because it overlooks the gardens of Palazzo Borghese and the Charming Terrace room because it has a 15 m² terrace overlooking the same gardens.

Enjoy a refreshing swim

The hotel might not have a pool, but with a city like Rome to discover, you wouldn't find the time to use it anyway.

Work out and wind down

Besides visiting all the sights of Rome, be sure to make some time for shopping. Join a guided food tour and taste local specialities. Explore the city by bike, or learn all you want to know about the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, each with a Dutch-speaking guide. Explore the Trastevere district where there is a cosy and local atmosphere at night.
