A palpable sense of tradition and glamour embraces you as soon as you step through the door of the lovely Hotel Eden, one of the most renowned classic hotels in Rome. Since 1889 a string of illustrious guests, including actors, politicians and royalty ‘wintering in Rome’, have been spoiled with the same attention to detail and timeless luxury. The cream, navy and wicker furnishings and decor cater to a decidedly Anglophile taste, and the overall atmosphere is that of an English country home, with carefully placed oil paintings and repro furniture. Rooms themselves are a relaxing combination of creams and quality fabrics in refined colours. Book a room on the fifth floor for a private balcony over-looking the trees of nearby Villa Borghese. The Michelin Star rated La Terrrazza dell’Eden restaurant is a luxuriant and unforgettable treat. Be warned: if romance is on the cards then a prosecco on the gorgeous terrace, which boasts one of the most spectacular panoramic views of the whole of Rome, could get you making all sorts of promises.
