Hotels in Rome
Just steps from Piazza del Popolo, this 32-room boutique hotel, housed in a 19th century palazzo, is outfitted with tasteful antique reproductions, rich fabric in gold tones and neutrals, and marble accents.
Built over Emperor Diocletian’s third-century baths in Piazza della Repubblica, the Hotel Exedra is housed in a white marble Neoclassical palace dating from the late 1800’s. Inside are 238 guestrooms with high ceilings, marble floors, silk wall coverings, and faux-crocodile headboards.
It has perhaps the most enviable physical visage of all Roman hotels—a wood and masonry former cloister—where rooms are arranged around an orange grove in the absolute heart of Trastevere.
Situated inside the Neoclassical Palazzo Pierret in the Piazza di Spagna, the Internazionale Domus hotel overlooks the Scalinata della Trinità dei Monti (Spanish Steps) as well as the Villa Borghese gardens and the shops of Via Condotti, which include Valentino, Gucci, and Prada.
A stone’s throw from both the Quirinal Hill and the Baths of Caracalla, the St. Regis Grand is a respite from the centro storico fray. A perfect merger of historic Roman splendor and white-glove American service, the former Grand Hotel has become a jewel in the St. Regis crown.
Located in the city's historical district, Fortyseven offers easy access to nearby attractions such as the Coliseum, Circus Maximus, Temple of Vesta, and Roman Forum.
Small and luxurious, with Neoclassical overtones, this early-20th-century villa—on a side street on patrician Quirinal Hill—is also refined and subtle: a small brass plaque and bell are all that distinguish it from its neighbors.
Sepia-toned photographic murals of iconic Roman monuments set the tone. This palazzo near the Spanish Steps retains original details—a cast-iron railing and Italian marble staircase—and, come this spring, will have a marvelous rooftop bar for aperitivos.
The Residenza Napoleone III, located on bustling Via Condotti, has been fully restored to its 1830's splendor. The hotel offers two apartment options: the Napoleone Suite and the Roof Garden Suite.
The only hotel directly linked to the airport (via pedestrian walkway), the Hilton is a popular option for those with an especially long layover. The hotel offers day-use rates on rooms (starting at about $105), which give travelers space to shower and nap.
Design diehards will love the five individually decorated rooms in the B&B creation of Hotel de Russie architect Tommaso Ziffer.
Three miles outside the city center, this sprawling 1960 urban hotel with a 15-acre private park sits atop the highest hill in Rome, offering sweeping city views.
It may be a 20-minute walk to the Spanish Steps, but the Parco dei Principi setting, tucked away beside Rome’s biggest park, Villa Borghese, means fewer tourists and less traffic for arriving travelers who prefer quieter hotels in residential neighborhoods to the city’s more typical hotel cluster
