Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 5.67 /10

    On the Via del Babuino, Piazza del Popolo side. The closest underground station is Spagna, at the other end of the Via del Babuino (5 to 10 minutes on foot depending on the number of passers-by - the pavements are narrow, and there is thick traffic in the street).
    Fiumicino airport is 16 mi away; and Ciampino 9 mi away. Allow for a 45 minutes trip for Fiumicino, and 30 minutes for Ciampino.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    The 122 rooms and suites are distributed over the six floors of the building, with an orientation over the hotel's garden (the favourite view; however, the others are just as nice), a private cul-de-sac, or the Via del Babuino. For families, the executive suites have two separate areas to accommodate parents and children comfortably (4 people). Regarding the size, the accommodation is spacious from the 1st category ("classic" room of 30 m2). Bathrooms decorated in travertine marble and borders in mosaic (or tiles in black and gold mosaic, green and white marble, depending on the categories), hairdryer, bathrobes, and welcome products in the chain name (from 50 ml to 80 ml in the room or suite). Bedcover and furnishing fabrics merge a range of hints of soft beige, yellow, and green. You have the impression of being in a cocoon, particularly as the rooms are very well soundproofed. Amongst the equipment, you will see a flat-screen television, a minibar, air conditioning, and direct telephone.

    Overview 9.30 /10

    The entrance is that of a luxury hotel, with reception on one side, lounge areas on the other, and the garden opposite, through a bay window. The furnishing, both eclectic and designer, has been thought out to the minutest detail. Observers will notice a work of art here, a glimpse of furniture from the 40s there; and others will find that the pastel green combined with black and grey hardly flatters the daylight. Fortunately, the artificial lighting has been well studied: from nightfall, the hotel changes. It is then that you see its real luxuriousness. While waiting for the evening, you will linger in the gardens, have a drink, eat a pastry, or simply read without being disturbed; you will also have time to try the spa area: a marine whirlpool bath is freely accessible here, like the sauna, Turkish bath, and the gym. The order in which you try out all this equipment is up to you.

    Food and drink 9.20 /10

    The morning buffet converts the breakfast into a complete gastronomic meal. Set out on the 1st floor, in the middle of a room over the garden, it offers sliced ham and salmon, thick cream, smoked marlin, vegetable quiche, sliced seasonal fruit, fruit cake, pastries... However, there are no hot dishes, or fresh orange juice: only those used to "fried eggs with two slices of toast" will ask for anything other than the buffet (at an extra charge). To taste all this, sit preferably on the terrace, at the tables and chairs of wrought iron overlooking the garden. There is another terrace below: this is the bar. Brunch is served at midday (every day) in the form of a light buffet (mixed salads, pasta, desserts) for £30.70. A daily menu is also available in the restaurant (midday and evening, 3 seasonal dishes for £45.70). A la carte, it is more expensive (one dish costs around £35), however, the recipes make your mouth water: salmon with hollandaise sauce, pasta with broccoli and Italian sausage, poached eggs with truffles...

    To know

    Located in an old building, the Hotel de Russie has been in the Rocco Forte Collection hotel chain since the year 2000, (date of the reopening of the hotel, following renovation and redecorating). Like all the hotels in this top-class chain, it has been labelled one of the Leading Hotels of the World.
    Accommodation Advice
    All the rooms have a very pleasant view, a point which deserves to be emphasized. The best orientation is over the garden; the other bedrooms look over a private cul-de-sac bordered with houses painted in bright colours, or the length of the Via del Babuino, with its old buildings. There is one setback, however: the first floors have a more limited view, and if you open the windows on the Via del Babuino side, you are exposed to the noisy Roman crowd.

      For those travellers wanting a slightly more personal feel from their stay in Rome, look no further than Babuino 181. This charming little boutique hotel offers one of the warmest welcomes in the city and guarantees both comfort and style for as long a stay as you wish. Handily named after its address, Babuino 181 aims to provide its guests with a high level of independence and privacy. The spacious rooms and comfortable common areas make for a hotel that you could quite happily not leave for a week. Though the hotel itself is only two years old, the building dates back to the 18th century, adding a true Italian authenticity. Its location on one of the city's oldest and most lively streets means that you're staying in, as well as alongside, all the Roman history your heart could desire.

      Charm exudes from every furnishing and corner of this delightful Art Deco hotel, situated in the heart of Italy's buzzing capital. Everything, from the lamps that dimly light the small bar to the grand bedframes and heavy room keys, screams faded 1920s extravagance and class. Three buildings make up the entire hotel, each with a slightly different character and style. The tranquil inner courtyard is heavenly after a busy day in the centre of Rome and you'll find nothing lacking from the small bar, with its lingering smell of pipe tobacco.

      With only four suites, Margutta 54 really is an out-of-the-ordinary hotel experience. Nestled into a corner of a quiet courtyard, surrounded by private residences, artists' workshops and drooping willow trees, it provides one of Rome's ultimate exclusive locations. For the independently minded traveller, this hotel is paradise, with guests left to come and go as they please and minimal staff to disturb the tranquillity. Each suite is unique in size and furniture but the beautiful contemporary Italian decoration features throughout, extending even into the softly lit corridors and entrance hall. Comfort, style and superb location are the corner stones of this hotel, making for a truly welcoming experience, however long you decide to stay.

      • Location 6.44

      Here is a hotel that is thought of as an art gallery, or even a contemporary museum: living place, the type of design where the rooms blend in with one another, evoking the minimalist, neo-baroque and post-modernist styles here and there. As there aren't many rooms, you will have to book in advance. If the hotel is fully booked, you can always come here to have a drink and enjoy the decor. Especially as the Spain Square area (nearby) is packed with shopping temptations.

      Tucked away down a small yet exclusive street not far from the Spanish Steps, the Mario de' Fiori 37 is a couple's paradise. Charming, comfortable and beautifully private, there is nowhere better to secret yourselves away for a weekend or longer in the heart of Rome. Similar in style to its two sister hotels (Babuino 181 and Margutta 54), Mario de' Fiori marries medieval with contemporary Rome. Original wooden beams protrude from the ceilings and the suites are full of quirky little niches and corridors. It may be old, but guests are treated to real roman luxury for the duration of their stay. Staff are wonderfully welcoming and accommodating, making this old style townhouse one of the most romantic get-aways in Rome.

      Though this 70s-built hotel is not quite an eye-pleaser from the outside, the interior is fresh from a 2012 renovation and full of soothing pastel shades. Spacious throughout, relaxing and quiet, the Visconti is the perfect weekender hotel for those looking not for luxury but comfort and practicality. It is large but very efficiently run, making it extremely popular with business clients and large groups. The surrounding neighbourhood is residential and within walking distance from the famous Vatican city and its wonderful churches and museums. Its best features are its small private garden where lunch is served during the summer months, and its large rooftop terrace with plenty of space for events and barbeques.

      As with most large chain hotels, the NH Leonardo da Vinci is efficiently run, strategically placed and slightly impersonal. Dealing mostly with business clientele during the week, the hotel becomes more leisure based at the weekend, creating two entirely different atmospheres depending on when you are staying. But whatever purpose you have in Rome, the hotel provides a perfect location from which to get to know Rome. A good night's sleep is guaranteed here, in one of Rome's upmarket, peaceful areas.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      The Palazzo Manfredi is the lucky owner of one of the most enchanting views that Rome has to offer. Situated next to the crumbling, magnificent Colosseum, this hotel will set your mouth in a constant 'O', and not just over the view. It may not look like much from the outside, with its plain white washed walls and crumbling Roman shutters, but the understated luxury that awaits you inside is of a completely different world. The tiny hotel has only 15 rooms, making it personal, private and a wonderful place to take a few days relaxation.
