Rome

Arco dei Tolomei
Guesthouse Arco de'Tolomei offers a homely country house-style atmosphere.
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.
Boscolo Exedra
Harking back to days of the Roman empire's lavish excess, the Exedra is the most bombastic of Rome's Boscolo hotels.
Boscolo Palace
There's comfort in old-world style, which is exactly what Rome Palace offers.
Bramante
Though you won't be raving about its surroundings, The Bramante is the best option here.
Buonanotte Garibaldi
Individually designed rooms open out onto large courtyards terraces full of cushions and places to doze off under trees.
Capo d’Africa
This friendly hotel mixes sharp service with contemporary styling and well-placed objects of contemporary art.
Casa Howard
This eclectically-styled townhouse has two locations and a loyal following with the international press.
Crossing Condotti
Not so much a hotel in the classic sense of the word as an elegantly furnished, superbly located townhouse apartment.
Daphne Inn
Daphne Inn is part of a new breed of boutique hotels in Rome that offer stylish surroundings but a relaxed attitude to service.
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.
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 Adriano
A family business for over 40 years, and recently revamped by arbiter of style Barbara Ricci, the Hotel Adriano is certainly worthy of more stellar accolades than it has received.
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.
Hotel Eden
The lovely Hotel Eden is a paradise lost amid the city's other more brazen design hotels.
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.
Hotel Splendide Royal

Il Palazzetto
Il Palazzetto combines chic and luxuriant styling with wine courses and a secret lounge bar and library.
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.
Locarno
Go for the Venetian suite in this shabby Art Deco favourite.
Majestic Roma
One of the most extravagant hotels in the city, the Hotel Majestic has a history of attracting the rich and famous.
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.
Radisson Blu es
When it first opened in 2002, this huge Schrager-esque monolith behind Termini station caused ripples through Rome's fashion set.
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.
St. Regis Rome
Enjoy high tea under the chandelier with a bevvy of international arbiters of good taste.
Villa Spalletti Trivelli
A luxurious hotel overlooking the gardens of the Quirinale Palace, the Villa Spalletti Trivelli is well-placed for sightseeing, as well as simply staying put and enjoying the decadence.
