A true Luxury Small Hotel of the World
City | City-break
Set between the Fori Imperiali – a collection of the city’s finest public squares – and the Colosseum, this upscale urban hotel is ideal for exploring Rome’s ancient wonders. Not least because it’s actually squatting on a 2,000-year-old cryptoporticus. It’s a stone gallery complete with ancient engravings making the hotel the city’s only luxury residence that houses Roman ruins. And, given its location you’ll be treated to views of the Campidoglio, Palatine Hill and, yes, its Roman namesake.
All of the Inn’s rooms feature marble bathrooms, complemented by beautifully designed rooms. Leather headboards and considered artwork provide the rooms with a real sense of Italy while rich fabrics, complimentary WiFi and oversize beds provide the comforts. Upgrade to a Deluxe offering for a Jacuzzi bath and sitting areas that face the hotel’s internal courtyard. Further upgrades mix in kitchenettes, extra space and wrought iron poster beds. The suites, however, are the most impressive with original mansard timber ceilings – the frame to decadent furniture that points out to private patios. For extended stays, consider booking into an apartment.
Like its sister hotel, The Inn at the Spanish Steps, breakfast is served on the rooftop to panoramic views over the city. As you’d expect from Italy, there’s a full range of cold cuts, cheeses and fresh fruits. However, it’s the homemade delicacies that stand out, rotating each day. The flourless chocolate cake is a particular delight. There’s also light bar menu featuring excellent pizzas and sandwiches. For something more extensive, you’ll have all of Rome’s finest restaurants on your doorstep.
Head back upstairs to the rooftop terrace to while away your afternoons and sunset evenings with a drink from the bar or by simply relaxing with a good book in the sun. It’s also not uncommon to be treated to the odd complimentary drink that can, quite atmospherically, be taken in the Roman crypt. Outside of the free WiFi, we recommend getting out of and exploring, especially with the Roman Forum next door. Here, a sprawl of ruins evidences ancient Rome’s showpiece centre, complete with temples, basilicas and giant squares.
