Your expert reviewer
Situated off Via Condotti above the Ferragamo store in the heart of Rome's most fashionable fashion streets, the Spanish Steps are just a couple of two minutes' walk. The historic centre's largest park, the Villa Borghese, is about ten minutes away by foot, as are both Spagna and Barberini metro stops.
By plane: flights to Rome Leonardo da Vinci from London (2 hours 25 minutes) or Manchester (2 hours 40 minutes). The hotel is a 50-minute drive from the airport. Book flights to Rome.
THE LOOK AND FEEL
There's a sophisticated, exclusive vibe and it doesn't really feel like a hotel at all - more like a private club. The décor is quite minimalist, with lots of white walls and splashes of pink and grey.
Being a small boutique hotel, there's not a huge range of facilities, but there is a rooftop terrace and although no restaurant (though they do serve breakfast), you are situated at the epicentre of many. Residents are offered a shopping card, giving a 10 percent discount at various boutiques.
