Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Rome

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.
Villa Laetitia
An aristocratic private residence on the banks of the Tiber, Villa Laetitia is a fully-restored, utterly-luxurious hotel from the Fendi family.
San Anselmo
Set in the leafy environs of the Aventine, Hotel Sant'Anselmo offers sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Residenza Torre Colonna
Residenza Torre Colonna is a boutique hotel housed within a renovated medieval watch tower in the heart of Rome.
Relais Le Clarisse
This pint-sized hotel has just five simple rooms but ticks all the right boxes for comfort and location.
Portrait Roma
This brand new venture from the swish Lungarno hotel group in Florence is set to be a fashionista magnet.
Navona Palace
These über-chic residences are the latest example of Rome's newest trend of luxurious apartments in the heart of the city.
JK Place Roma
Sightseeing and style go hand-in-hand at JK Place Roma, a much-feted boutique hotel that is perfect for a spoil-yourself-rotten weekend away...
Inn at the Roman Forum
The Inn looks out over the ruins of Trajan's market yet still feels decidedly off the beaten track.
Il Palazzetto
Il Palazzetto combines chic and luxuriant styling with wine courses and a secret lounge bar and library.
Hotel Splendide Royal
A luxurious hotel overlooking the gardens of the Villa Borghese, the Hotel Splendide Royal offers accommodations that are decidedly regal in appearance and ambience.
Hotel Campo de’ Fiori
The Hotel Campo de’ Fiori is an antiques-strewn hotel, with its own al fresco terrace looking out over the rooftops of the Roman capital.
Hotel Art
This appropriately named hotel lurks on the lovely Via Margutta, a street that was stuffed to the gills with artists' studios back in the 1600s.
G-Rough
A sumptuous place to stay in the Centro Storico, the G-Rough suites epitomise rough luxury, with everything from stripped back walls to walls gleaming with golden brickwork.
Fortyseven
This is a particularly handsome choice of hotel near the Ghetto and the dreamy Taverna degli Amici.
Crossing Condotti
Not so much a hotel in the classic sense of the word as an elegantly furnished, superbly located townhouse apartment.
CasaCau
A six-apartment boutique hotel near the Trevi Fountain, CasaCau is a luxurious, well-positioned starting point from which to explore the Eternal City.
Casa Manni
A posh penthouse apartment in Centro Storico, Casa Manni would have even the most discerning guest feeling right at home.
Casa Howard
This eclectically-styled townhouse has two locations and a loyal following with the international press.
Capo d’Africa
This friendly hotel mixes sharp service with contemporary styling and well-placed objects of contemporary art.
Buonanotte Garibaldi
Individually designed rooms open out onto large courtyards terraces full of cushions and places to doze off under trees.
Boscolo Palace
There's comfort in old-world style, which is exactly what Rome Palace offers.
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 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.
Aldrovandi Villa Borghese
An elegant hotel in the upscale Pinciano neighbourhood, Aldrovandi Villa Borghese is an oasis in the Eternal City, with a Michelin-starred restaurant and must-visit spa.
Abitart
Abitart is a little removed from the centre of town (behind the Pyramid on the Via Ostiense), but for those who have already seen the sights and want to explore a cool part of town, it might be an interesting choice.
