Hotel Eden, Rome
Hotel Eden is a classic, grand European hotel. Since its opening in 1889, the Eden has played host to European royalty and regular travelers alike. Traditions live on here: guests are greeted by a top-hatted, white-gloved doorman as before entering the opulent lobby with an imposing central staircase fitted with ornamental wrought-iron railings. Rooms are spacious and feature luxurious touches, include marble-tiled bathrooms. Also popular are the views from the Eden's terrace garden, which overlooks the nearby domed cathedrals and Spanish Steps in a picture-worthy scene.
