This luxury boutique hotel, in the old Foppa family palazzo, blends tasteful, modern rooms with the building’s authentic traditional features.

Accommodation is flexible, with a mix of suites, rooms, but the main draw is the location – just moments from Piazza Navona and walking distance to Rome’s major sights. St. Peter’s and the Vatican are about a mile away (or 20-minute walk). It’s a great value for such a convenient position.

A solid central choice, with just enough luxury, and it has a gym and spa to rejuvenate after a hard day’s sightseeing.

Surrounding area

The surrounding area is full of vintage shops, chic boutiques and late-night wine bars. Tourist-thronged Piazza Navona is best viewed early in the morning.

Later it struggles to maintain its baroque beauty among all the street vendors selling cheap merchandise.

The nearby church of St. Agnese designed by Borromini and the Fountain of the Four Rivers by Bernini are two of the city’s unmissable gems.
