Located on Via Giulia, one of Rome’s most beautiful streets and convenient locale for sightseeing, the polished Hotel Indigo – St George Roma caters to the sophisticated traveller.

The 62 rooms all are tastefully decorated in a modern but warm classic style.; sometimes, with so much history outside, it’s refreshing to come home to some sophisticated chic.

To soothe the tired sightseer, the hotel features a spa with heated Jacuzzi and Turkish bath, and a lovely restaurant and roof terrace for dining by candlelight.

The location is excellent; it’s a fair distance from the tourist mayhem, yet close enough to be able to walk pretty much everywhere.

Surrounding area

Via Giulia is a quiet, beautiful street full of Renaissance churches, palazzi, fountains, antiques shops and art galleries. Frequented by well-heeled Romans and the odd tourist, it has the huge advantage of being central but tucked away from the crush of people that blights the major thoroughfares during peak season.

The location is highly convenient for most of Rome’s major sights – just 15 minutes’ walk to the Vatican, Piazza Navona, or lively Trastevere district. Castel Sant’Angelo is only 500m away, and the River Tiber, for riverside strolls, is also close by.
