Art deco elegance in the heart of Italy's historic capital
City | Food & wine | History & culture | Honeymoon | Short break
Amid the lights, colours and intoxicating atmosphere of the central Via Veneto, the street immortalised in Fellini’s celebrated film, La Dolce Vita, the five-star Baglioni Hotel Regina sits moments from Villa Borghese, Piazza di Spagna and Via Condotti in the very centre of historic Rome. For some respite, make the short walk to the Borghese Gardens where rows of English beds point towards atmospheric piazzas and some of the city's finest art galleries.
The Baglioni Hotel Regina's magnificent rooms have long played host to the international jet set. Decorated in immaculate Art Deco style, the furniture is designer-chic cool while remaining respectful of the hotel's 19th century origins. Expect dark timber accents, complemented by relaxed colour schemes. Views range from internal courtyard overlooks to sweeps of the city's Roman roads as upgrades add Italian marble bathrooms, original furniture and suite layouts into the equation.
Relish Mediterranean flavours in a traditionally elegant Italian setting at the gourmet Brunello Lounge and Restaurant. Chef Luciano Sarzi Sartori’s inventive menus delight with such creations as puff pastry cannolo stuffed with salmon caviar, and baby octopus in hot tomato sauce stew on Chianti chick-pea and extra virgin olive oil cream. It's all prepared with the same attention to detail that has seen him cook for such luminaries as George Clooney and the Dalai Lama. One of which even granted him a Scarf of Peace.
You'll take your breakfasts by the fire of Caffè Baglioni while the Tempio della Salute spa offers a similarly warm welcome. Here, you'll be able to take a break from the city's hustle and bustle across two massage rooms, a beauty suite, a sauna, a Turkish bath and a Jacuzzi. A fully-equipped fitness centre is also available, ideal for burning off any excesses taken in the lounge bar.
