Official star rating:
Celebrities patronise this elegantly luxurious Rocco Forte hotel, perfectly located between the Spanish Steps and Piazza del Popolo, close to Rome’s major sites.
Cool, calming interiors, and a lovely outdoor terrace with views over beautiful terraced gardens, make this an oasis from the bustle outside, while the spa – one of Rome’s best – features a Finnish sauna, steam bath and saltwater whirlpool bath, soothes and rejuvenates tired sightseers.
It’s family-friendly, yet retains a discreetly romantic quality for couples.
Via del Babuino is a fashionista favourite, lined with hip boutiques and haute couture ateliers. Via Margutta, a peaceful pedestrian street famous for its art galleries and workshops, runs parallel. Although this is a well-trodden tourist path, it’s worth braving the crowds – this is one of Rome’s most stunning areas.
