Official star rating:
Located between Rome’s Regola and the Jewish quarters, the four-star Hotel Chapter Roma has a cutting-edge urban style that sets it apart from the city’s more old-school options. Its industrial-luxe interiors, murals by local street artists, and Mexico-themed cocktail bar channel the contemporary cool of the Eternal City.
An ideal base for seeing the sights, guests can plot a course from the hotel to Piazza di Spagna, walking past Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, and Trevi Fountain. When evening falls, Trastevere’s thumping nightlife is just across Ponte Garibaldi.
There are two in-house restaurants for fine dining or sushi and a breezy terrace for views of Rome’s characteristic domes and rooftops.
Digital nomads, rambling entrepreneurs, and solo travellers flock to the HeyBaby bar, which doubles as a co-working space and social-networking hub.
Exit the hotel and you’re within striking distance of some the most important High Renaissance palaces in the city, such as Palazzo Farnese and Palazzo Spada.
For shoppers and perusers, the neighbourhood has plenty of art galleries, quirky concept stores, and artisan shops to check out.
