Villa Spalletti Trivelli
Right in the heart of Rome, found near some of its prime historical attractions – including the Trevi Fountain and the Quirinale Gardens – the Villa Spalletti Trivelli exudes a feeling of calm that totally belies its central location. It helps that it’s utterly luxurious, of course. It’s the kind of hotel where little things like the outside world simply fade away – even if the outside world is the Eternal City.
The decor here is sumptuous. Antiques and artworks abound. Rooms come draped and wrapped in everything from embroidered linen sheets to cashmere throws. Bathrooms are marble and come with organic bath products. And the public spaces, like the lobby, seem to have been transported from centuries past, or borrowed from museums, such is the quality. Gilt frames encase oil paintings, tapestries hang from the walls, and staircases wind their way up to more decadent spaces.
Continuing even further up, guests will find the exclusive rooftop of the Villa Spalletti Trivelli. Recently refurbished, the rooftop is clad in warm wood, featuring a sleek terrace bar – where the drinks are complimentary, it should be noted – and al fresco jacuzzis. From here, you can pour yourself a glass of prosecco, or something stiffer, and indulge in a scoop of gelato, or something altogether healthier.
And to deepen the decadence, there’s the Villa Spalletti Trivelli Wellness Centre. Taking a holistic approach to relaxation, this elegant space offers a tepidarium, steam room and relaxation room, as well as a 24-hour gym and the services of a personal trainer.
