Your expert reviewer
The hotel has a fantastic central location at the top of the Spanish Steps with the chi-chi Via dei Condotti shopping district - with all the top designers, boutiques and art galleries - just moments away. The Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Villa Borghese and other key sights are all within walking distance.
By plane: fly to Rome Fiumicino from London (2 hours 25 minutes) or Manchester (2 hours 40 minutes). The hotel is a 45-minute drive from the airport. Paid on-site parking available. Book flights to Rome.
THE LOOK AND FEEL
There's a wonderfully uplifting ambiance thanks to the sophisticated use of colour, eclectic collection of artworks and antiquities, top notch furniture and rich fabrics and wallpapers to die for. The bold colours work every time, with monochrome details complemented by vivid red and mustard. Rooms all have their own character, as the hotel is made up of three renovated historic palazzi merged together.
A hotel like this isn't about stacking up lots of facilities, but instead focusing on excelling in the most essential ones. There's a choice of bar and restaurants, a spa and a gym with some TechnoGym equipment and weights.
