Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Rome

Gran Melià Rome
An oasis in the bustle of the Italian capital, the Gran Melià Rome is a luxurious, five-star urban resort with sprawling grounds and its own Clarins spa.
Grand Hotel de la Minerve
This grand palace has seen better days but boasts an unrivalled location with stunning views.
Il Palazzetto
Il Palazzetto combines chic and luxuriant styling with wine courses and a secret lounge bar and library.
Visconti Palace
There's a slightly corporate feel to this huge hotel, but things are slowly changing.
Majestic Roma
One of the most extravagant hotels in the city, the Hotel Majestic has a history of attracting the rich and famous.
Radisson Blu es
When it first opened in 2002, this huge Schrager-esque monolith behind Termini station caused ripples through Rome's fashion set.
Ripa Roma
Those with a penchant for Schrageresque styling will enjoy this hotel.
Babuino 181
Located in a three-story 18th-century building in the heart of Rome, Babuino 181's luxury bedrooms are a pleasant and tasteful retreat on the historic Via del Babuino.
Navona Palace
These über-chic residences are the latest example of Rome's newest trend of luxurious apartments in the heart of the city.
Fortyseven
This is a particularly handsome choice of hotel near the Ghetto and the dreamy Taverna degli Amici.
Hotel de Russie
When filmstars are in town they make a beeline for the Hotel de Russie, so expect a constant herd of paparazzi waiting to pounce as the limousines roll by.
View at the Spanish Steps
Small but perfectly formed rooms made for hedonistic high jinx.
Inn at the Spanish Steps
Slap bang in the middle of 'Bling Street', this popular residence couldn't be in a more suitable location for shopaholics.
Le Real de Luxe
Ideal for those in town on a flying visit, this hotel offers a base that doesn't fall short on style and service either.
Parco dei Principi Grand Hotel
If you're looking for a luxurious and sumptuous oasis away from the heavily trodden paths of downtown Rome, then this is the place you're looking for.
Boscolo Exedra
Harking back to days of the Roman empire's lavish excess, the Exedra is the most bombastic of Rome's Boscolo hotels.
Hassler Roma
This fifth-generation Swiss hotel, which was requisitioned by the US air force to serve as their HQ during World War II, crowns the top of the Spanish Steps.
Hotel Ponte Sisto
Hotel Ponte Sisto sits neatly on the edge of the river, just by the eponymous bridge, in a delectable restored Renaissance palazzo.
The First Luxury Art Hotel
Perfectly located, effortlessly luxurious and a roof garden with spectacular views of the city. We just can't fault The First Hotel...
Inn at the Roman Forum
The Inn looks out over the ruins of Trajan's market yet still feels decidedly off the beaten track.
Boscolo Aleph
A temple to city-slick, decadent design, architect Adam Tihany's creation for the Boscolo chain won the prize for Best Hotel Interior Design in Europe in 2004.
Rome Cavalieri
Redolent of Las Vegas, the Cavalieri Hilton is possibly the most spectacularly ornate hotel in all of Rome.
Hotel Indigo Rome – St. George
On the quieter end of the peaceful and beautiful cobblestoned Via Giulia lies this comfortable, minimal hotel, the ideal spot to explore the vivacious Piazza Na
Casa Manni
A posh penthouse apartment in Centro Storico, Casa Manni would have even the most discerning guest feeling right at home.
Boscolo Palace
There's comfort in old-world style, which is exactly what Rome Palace offers.
Regina Baglioni
If the Italians know one thing, it's style. Case in point is the Regina Hotel Baglioni in Rome, which has lashings of the stuff with a location in Via Veneto that's just a stone's throw away from the world-renowned fashion street of Via Condotti.
Hotel Eden
The lovely Hotel Eden is a paradise lost amid the city's other more brazen design hotels.
St. Regis Rome
Enjoy high tea under the chandelier with a bevvy of international arbiters of good taste.
