Hotel Piranesi


196 Via del Babuino,


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. Breakfast is available on site and there is a classic Italian stand-up coffee and wine bar in the lobby. For some, though, the highlight are the hotel's outdoor areas: a dining patio, rooms with balconies, and a rooftop terrace and bar overlooking the spires of the city, where guests can eat breakfast or gaze at the twinkling lights of the city at night.
