Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Barocco is the hotel to book if you want to take photographs of the fountain in the Barberini square in all its different lights, in the morning, noon and evening. Indeed, several of the hotel's rooms look out onto the fountain, or overlook it (depending on the floor). As for its category, the Barocco is affordable. Its antique furnishings give a certain conviviality to the place, which is strengthened by the friendly welcome and service. If you are able to stay in one of the suites, this will be perfect: we particularly recommend the suites with a small balcony, overlooking the Barberini square.

    Location 7.51 /10

    The hotel's entrance is on the Via della Purificazione, but the building looks onto the Barberini square. The metro stop of the same name is 20 metres from the hotel.
    Fiumicino airport is located 16 mi away, and Ciampino is 9 mi away. Allow for a 45 min journey to Fiumicino, and 30 min to Ciampino.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    In total, the Barocco has 37 rooms in the old building and 4 in the modern annexe, built at the back. Depending on both their category and where they are located on their floor, the double rooms have a total area of between 172 sq ft and 323 sq ft. The hotel also has 6 single rooms. When the rooms do not have a view of the Barberini square, they are facing the Via della Purificazione, or the building's courtyard (quiet). To make sure you get a view of the Barberini square (the fountain is superbly lit up at night), ask for a higher category room (a junior or a suite). Families (with 1 child) should also ask for a junior suite or a suite, as their size allows another bed to be added. As for the decoration, the fabric of the furnishings varies from red to green, including beige and blue. There is antique-style cherry wood furniture, and carpet on the ground or marble flooring (for the suites). We also liked the welcome basket, which was well stocked with welcome products (35 ml) bearing the hotel's name. Other facilities include a bathtub or a shower, and a hair dryer (with bath robes upon request) for the bathroom. The room has a television, minibar, air conditioning and a telephone.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Set in an 18th Century building, but opened as a hotel in 1991 and renovated in 2001, the Barocco has 6 floors. Its most visible facade overlooks the Barberini square and its fountain. The hotel's entrance is not on this side, but on the street situated on the corner of the block of houses. The traditional-style reception area is a little cramped and has a striped velvet sofa and armchairs, a carpet with cashmere patterns, and wooden panels painted with neo-renaissance scenes. The reception is located in the hallway. Another corridor leads to the bar and restaurant area. And that's it for the tour of this hotel's common areas.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The Barocco only offers breakfast. This is served in the restaurant room adjoining the bar, or in your room (upon request, and at no extra cost). However, you should be aware that the breakfast that is brought to your room is not as varied as the breakfast in the restaurant's buffet. This also offers scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, smoked ham, fresh fruit (not sliced, unfortunately), pastries, and bread rolls. Coffee (expresso, lungo, capuccino) is served at the table. The room is small, but nicely arranged: damask tablecloths and napkins, silver-plated cutlery, gathered Venetian blinds (hiding the absence of a view, as the room does not look onto the outside). Adjacent to this room, you will find the bar: you can order a sandwich or a salad here for lunch, and come for a drink here in the evening. However, the Chesterfield-style leather sofa, the absence of a terrace and the small size of the bar do not really make you want to spend any time here. It is better to go to Harry's Bar, on the Via Veneto: a 7-minute walk from the hotel.

    To know

    The Barocco is a small hotel (less than 50 rooms) in a central location and with a friendly reception, with rooms that are different according to their category. However, this is not a luxury hotel. This is more of a traditional establishment, with undeniable charm and elegant decoration.
    Accommodation Advice
    The most spacious and nicely decorated rooms are the suites, especially those which look onto the Barberini square: 2 of them have a little balcony (not equipped), and 2 others have a terrace (with garden furniture). Don't rush to get one of the suites with a terrace: the walls that surround the terrace make it difficult to see the square (and the Barberini fountain). Also, the noise in the surrounding area is not conducive to relaxation (heavy traffic around the square).

      If you want to try a slice of Hollywood class right in Rome's buzzing centre, the Intercontinental de la Ville is the only place to head. Huge revolving entrance doors and porters in top hats and tails will make you feel like you've stepped onto the set of an Audrey Hepburn movie. This classical hotel is all glittering chandeliers, grandeur and glamour, with a great restaurant to boot. Its size and style make it a hot choice for weddings and dinners, with a delightful central courtyard and rooftop terrace, offering views over the sprawling city. Perfect for business clientele, as well as those wanting to enjoy the city for leisure, this hotel will provide you with a stylish base from which to explore it.

      The Aleph Hotel is for literature enthusiasts (remember The Divine Comedy by Dante?), design nuts and those who like unusual, colourful places. Although you won't spend long on the ground floor, the colour red dominates proceedings. It is the perfect place for a drink in the evening: the place is sophisticated and trendy. And if you like the decor, you should spend the weekend there. Welcome first to Purgatory, then Paradise: all is revealed when you set eyes on your room and the spa...

      A pretty, well located hotel with a limited number of rooms: for those who want to experience the chic side of Rome, take a stroll through Villa Borghese park or do some shopping on the Via Veneto or in the Piazza di Spagna area. This rococo-inspired hotel is beyond reproach, if you can afford to stay in a suite and take lunch and dinner in the gourmet restaurant with no budget restrictions.

      The Regina Baglioni is one of the historical landmarks of the Via Veneto. Wander down as if to have a drink at Harry's bar (located on the same avenue): for a chic yet traditional atmosphere. Take in the luxury of early 20th Century palaces, the traditional service and the refinement of the decor. It is best suited to couples celebrating a special occasion (birthday or other celebration) to fully appreciate the hotel.

      The well-located (adjacent to the Via Veneto, in close proximity to Villa Borghese park), historical, luxury Sofitel Roma is one of the best choices for an upmarket weekend and is also reasonably-priced. It is welcoming, comfortable and serves a princely breakfast. You can be a little lenient, then, on the bedrooms which overlook a narrow backyard; there is also no point asking where the hammam and whirlpool bath are. The hotel doesn't actually have a spa.

      • Value for money 7.29
      • Location 7.44

      It may be on the list of Rome's hotels but the Villa Spalletti Trivelli is quite different from your ordinary hotel experience. It cannot be confined to any kind of category, nor can it be given any stars. It is simply in a class above the rest - an aristocratic home away from home if you will. Still owned by Count Trivelli and his wife, the Villa was converted from the Count's private residence and still retains its original furniture. You must be looking for the very best in luxury accommodation (with a budget to match) to appreciate the magnificence of this 20th century property, its beautiful rooms and gardens. Rest assured though, that you will receive only the best in exclusive service and ultimate privacy. If official photos tend to exaggerate the elegance of the hotels they picture, then those of Spalletti Trivelli don't do it justice. You must be sat in the grand drawing room with a hot drink or snuggled up in the library with a book in order to really see the restored beauty of one of Rome's most exclusive addresses.

      An excellent location in the chic and hip side of Rome: the hotel is located on the famous via Veneto, and the beautiful boutiques on the piazza di Spagna are accessible within a five minute walk. The Marriott Flora is, however, not part of the category of luxury hotels, so you know what to expect as far as the decoration is concerned, and you will be pleased as far your wallet is concerned. The hotel building overlooks the park of villa Borghese, and the top floor was designed as a terrace sheltered by a glass canopy for breakfast: a view of the trees in the heart of the city, that's the lovely particularity of this hotel.

      Located in the centre of Rome, La Griffe will allow you to visit the city's main ancient sites (Coliseum, the Forum, Palatine Hill) on foot, without having to use the buses or the underground. An advantage for ancient history enthusiasts, but note that the design of the hotel is very Roman, and very contemporary. If you think that glossy black and red belong in a night-club rather than in a hotel, you should pick another hotel. Neo-Baroque enthusiasts will like it, as well as the curious ones among you who would like to test the effects of "chromotherapy".

      The Hotel de Russie is one of the grand hotels in Rome with a garden. A privilege that is all the more remarkable because this garden, which backs on to the Monte Pincio (the hill leading to the Villa Borghese Park from the Piazza del Popolo), gives the impression of being in the very heart of the countryside. Perfect for getting away from the commotion and noise of Rome (which begins at the hotel door) whilst remaining just a few minutes by foot from Piazza di Spagna and the elegant shops in the area.

      Take the winding roads through the gardens of the Villa Borghese (one of Rome's most historic villas and gardens) and you will emerge into the peaceful neighbourhood of Parioli, distinctly different from Rome's usual bustling centre. Here, flanked by large private residences, the Aldrovandi Palace hotel offers its guests an exclusive place to rest their heads. As a Leading Hotel of the World, the hotel is used to welcoming guests who expect only the very best - attentive staff, gourmet food and comfort. And this is exactly what it delivers, with elegance, style and a two-Michelin-star restaurant to boot.

      To make sure of a pleasant stay, impress your other half with a setting that lacks neither gilding nor history, and to discover ancient (or Renaissance) Rome within walking distance of your hotel, reserve a room at the Exedra. This is a luxury hotel but it is not flashy, with attentive and discreet service. It is like living in a palace and, from June to September, you really can get a feel of the "dolce vita", with the open-air swimming-pool on the roof.

      For true boutique style, class and impeccable service, the Lord Byron is our top choice of places to stay in Rome. There is a reason that this hotel has such a loyal returning clientele and it is simply because the service is outstanding. From the moment you walk up the steps to the reception, a relaxed atmosphere washes over you. It may be out of the immediate vicinity of Rome's biggest attractions, but it is all the better for it. After a long day of absorbing the endless roman culture, it is true heaven to come back to a hotel that really feels like home.

      • Location 6.02

      An upmarket hotel, well located for exploring the Piazza Navona and the Trastevere district on foot, the St George is recommended for a week-end away from it all... This will give you the opportunity to try the spa (maybe a treatment or two and a dip in the hydrotherapy bath), sample the restaurant menu and hang out in the wine bar. Ideally you would stay here when the panoramic terrace is open (between April and October). In practice, though, if the rates offer a better deal in January, don't hesitate to stay at the St George: the decor in the hotel (all beige, grey-green and glossy brown) makes it feel more like winter than summer anyway.
