Dmitry Petrounin Section editor

This is a charming hotel that is very close to the Coliseum, you can even see it from the hotel terrace and windows of certain rooms. This is a very good choice for two, in a setting similar to that of a private house, with all the comfort of a big hotel. Do not forget that because the number of rooms is limited, and the hotel well sought after, you should book a long time in advance.

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.

    • To know

    • Simply put, its neighbour is the Colosseum. And when we say neighbour, we mean direct, adjacent, and as close as is humanly possible without building a house in the middle of the road that surrounds the ancient amphitheatre. Other than meaning brilliant views and a very short walk to visit, it also means you are in the heart of Rome's lively Ancient Quarter. Just over the road is the Parco Colle Oppio, one of Rome's central parks and built on the site of one of Ancient Rome's most exclusive neighbourhoods. It also covers the northern tip of the Oppian Hill, one of Rome's seven famous hills, providing great views over the city and its ancient attractions. Situated next to the Colosseum, you are also a few minutes' walk from the Roman Forum and the Vittoriano Palace, as well as the bustling shopping streets of Via del Corso and the exclusive Via Condotti.

    • There are six types of room to choose from at the Palazzo Manfredi. All will provide you with a superbly comfortable bed to rest your head at night, but it is the added extras upon which you must decide. If you want the full Monty, complete with small spa centre and gym, the Suite Coloseo is for you. A huge mirror-cum-TV and a surround sound system complete the exclusivity of this suite. Interestingly, the room looks directly down onto the excavated site of the gladiators' changing rooms, with a tunnel leading directly into the arena of the Colosseum. If not the top suite, then even the Prestige rooms come with a Nespresso machine, Sky TV, free Wi-Fi and luxurious bathroom products from Italian designer, Battistoni. Decked out in marble with large bathtubs or huge walk-in showers, they are well-lit, spacious and impeccably clean. In the bedroom, the wooden floors are covered with cosy rugs and the beds are laden with pillows. Room service is, of course, at your disposal, as well as iPod docks to provide the right music to set the tone.

    • Given its location and size, this hotel doesn't need or have large spaces. The lobby is large enough to hold the small reception and a gorgeous little seating area, which feels more like someone's personal living room than a waiting area in a hotel. The shelves are lined with books, newspapers lie waiting on the side and the sofas look good enough to doze on for a good few hours. A small lift will take you to the top floor and the terrace with its bar and restaurant. Navigate a corridor or two and a narrow set of stairs and you emerge out onto the terrace, with its three separate rooms. This is the only other communal space that the hotel has but its view is enough to captivate for hours and the small bar area to the left is especially comfortable, with wicker furniture and plenty of cushions on which to pass an afternoon in the Roman sunshine.

    • It is the food and drink that really make this hotel one of the finest that Rome has to offer. Open for lunch and dinner, choose from lobster, seabass, veal and a very tempting list of desserts that each deserve a try. The menu is seasonal, along with special menus for holidays, such as Christmas and the New Year. The chef, we were told, spends a large amount of time researching his recipes and products before choosing the best local produce. His meals are all typically Mediterranean but incorporate an essential Roman flavour as well. The dishes are, as you would expect, presented flawlessly, with drizzled sauces and good sized portions that will leave you satisfied but not overflowing. The service is faultless, attentive and most especially full of recommendations. Its popularity with non-residents seals the deal in terms of recommendations, with other hotels around the city recommending it as one of the top places to spend a night out in the capital. Breakfast is also served in the restaurant, with guests able to choose from a buffet style or an la carte menu, depending on their preference.

    • Built in the 1500s as a convent, the hotel then fell into the hands of the noble Guidi family and was turned into a private residence. When it was eventually taken over by the Manfredi family for which it is named, it spent many years as an office for the family's construction business before becoming the exclusive hotel that it is today. Now, it caters to an elite clientele, providing a first class restaurant and terrace bar and all the services your heart could desire. With the most recent refurbishment in 2010, the hotel is still extremely fresh and is run with ultimate precision. It is this precision and attention to detail - the complimentary iPads offered at reception for example or the Battistoni products in the bathroom - that makes the Palazzo Manfredi so attractive.

      • Value for money 6.47
      • Location 5.68

      This hotel, located a five minute walk from the Colosseum, is almost without fault (apart from the absence of a relaxation area) and offers comfortable bedrooms, equipped with everything your heart could desire. The Capo d'Africa offers an attractive setting for those who like to be in the centre of the action but want a quiet place to return to during the evening. Its outstanding feature is the two roof terraces, perfect for summer's evenings when the day is slightly cooler and a relaxing evening meal is in order. However, the terrace is not open all year round so to make the most of your stay, this is a hotel best enjoyed during the summer months.

      • Location 9.97

      Only a short walk from the central Termini train station, the Hotel Palladium Palace has lost much of its former splendour and seems to have fallen slightly into disrepair. Nevertheless, its positioning could not be more convenient and availability is always good. An imposing building, this hotel is basic but a perfect base if you're going to spend most of your time out roaming the streets of the capital. Its four stars is a little deceiving so be sure to expect something a little more simple and prices that are not really worth what you receive.

    • Villa Spalletti Trivelli Villa Spalletti Trivelli Villa Spalletti Trivelli

      • Value for money 7.15
      • 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.

      Of the three hotels in the Bettoja chain situated on the Via Cavour, the Atlantico is the most modest, but not necessarily the cheapest. To be chosen when the other two hotels are full. If this is the case, you will be reassured by the breakfast buffet, served at the Mediterraneo, and you will be able to use the gym in the basement like the guests of the Massimo d'Azeglio.

      • Location 9.66

      Opened in 2009, UNA hotel still looks brand new, both inside and out. Modern, minimalist and strangely quirky in parts (the zebra print couch in the entrance hall should give you an idea of what is in store), almost all guests will tell you that UNA is very good value for money. This is a hotel completely at odds with the ancient city around it and provides an ultra-modern alternative to most of Rome's authentically crumbling hotels. Of exceptional note are its extremely polite and attentive staff and superb bar and restaurant.

      This is an historic hotel, which doesn't seem to have changed since it opened in 1875. As this type of hotel is disappearing and the prices are very reasonable, we shall recommend the Massimo d'Azeglio to anyone who likes old-style holidays. Well located, in the heart of the city centre: so it is not the quietest of its category, but the interior and the restaurant are so quaint that they are definitely worth spending some time in.

      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".

      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.

      • Location 5.67

      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.

      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.

      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.
