St RegisCreated by César Ritz in 1894, this hotel soon became famous in the city for being the first to offer a private bathroom and a whopping two electric lights in every room. Over the years, this magnificent hotel has hosted the crème de la crème in international society, from members of the Royal Family to industrial tycoons, as well as artists and politicians. Located close to the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain, this is the perfect hotel for your Audrey Hepburn-style Roman holiday. 6. HasslerThis family-run gem certainly has a reputation that precedes itself. Not only because of the amazing location (overlooking the Spanish Steps, with views of St. Peters), but also because Woody Allen is a regular customer. The rooms are furnished with velvet sofas that continue to wow guests time after time. 7. Teatro PaceTucked away in a narrow street near Piazza Navona, in among artisan shops and flower stalls, Hotel Teatro Pace has an elegant (but not excessive) atmosphere. It was once the house of a Cardinal and has maintained many of its original features such as the impressive spiral staircase in the foyer, the wooden floors and the high ceilings with exposed beams. They have added a roof terrace for guests staying in the suite with enchanting views over the city’s rooftops.8. Portrait RomaIn the heart of the hippest area of Rome, surrounded by designer boutiques, the Portrait Roma is a paradise for lovers of fashion and design. Designed by a local architect, but conceived and founded by the genius of Salvatore Ferragamo, this hotel would be the perfect set for an episode of Sex and the City. There are cashmere bed linens and walk-in closets, as well as artefacts from the world of high fashion (among other items, they have a receipt for a pair of shoes sold to Marilyn Monroe in 1961!) Bring your best wardrobe pieces, you’re in the right place to show them off. 2. Villa LaetitiaThis boutique hotel along the Tiber River was built at the beginning of 1900s, but renovated in 2006. Villa Laetitia has 15 mini apartments, each with its own unique character with the perfect mix of luxury, eccentricity and contemporary design. In the rooms you will find Picasso patterned scarves, a 1930s sofa designed by Van der Rohe and plenty of Chanel and Dior. Here you can relax all evening in your own private terrace or garden. 9. Gran MeliàMore like a palace than a hotel, Gran Meliá is located in the Empress Agrippina ancient villa overlooking the Tiber River, just a few steps away from St. Peter’s and Castel Sant Angelo. It combines traditional charm with avant-garde design and has a swimming pool, library, gourmet restaurant and of course, a beautiful spa. Just one day here and the outside world will seem like a distant memory.10. VOI Donna Camilla SavelliThe Trastevere district is a lively neighbourhood and now a must-see for anyone staying in the capital. Donna Camilla Salvelli is situated here in a restored historic building that’s garden is surrounded by stone walls and has a terrace where you can spend your summer evenings. 3. De RussiePicasso, Stravinsky, Cocteau and many others loved this place, and how can you blame them? The De Russie has managed to maintain its 1800s charm but with added modern comforts such as comfortable beds and a spa. Spend a summer evening in this hotel’s wonderful gardens and you’ll forget that you are in the middle of a city as the swarms of people on the Piazza del Popolo will feel a million miles away despite being just around the corner.last_img read more
