As one of Rome's largest chain hotels, the Radisson Blu Es certainly has all the amenities that you could wish for. It goes for practicality over personality and if that's what you're looking for, it will be right up your street. Extremely popular with business clients, the rooms are spacious and simple, the breakfast is hearty and Termini train station is so close that it's actually visible from the hotel's higher floors.

    • To know

    • It may not be the nicest of Rome's neighbourhoods, but there is no denying the practicality of the Radisson's location. Situated next to Rome's largest train station, it couldn't be better placed for those needing to come and go from Fiumicino Airport, which is roughly a 30 minute train journey from the city centre. From Termini train station, you can also take both lines of the metro (it is the only station where the metros intersect), making it extremely handy for navigating the city, from the Colosseum in the southern ancient quarter, to the Vatican in the North West. As for the neighbourhood itself, keep your bags close to you around Termini station - a famous haunt for pickpockets. Only a five minute walk away is the famous Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, the largest Marian Roman Catholic church in Rome and one of the four churches owned by the Vatican City outside its walls.

    • What really stands out about the rooms here is their size. Even the standard rooms are plenty big enough and all are minimalist in their design. Glass panels separate the bedroom from the bathroom in order to break the conventional structure of a hotel room, with only one door leading to the loo. The furniture is almost exclusively white, with wooden floors and tops and small splashes of colour in the form of muted green rugs or relaxed blue lampshades. Though it still looks relatively new and fresh, the white does a very good job of showing up even the smallest bit of grub and making it a big deal. Each room, be it a standard or a suite, put a large emphasis on water, with huge bathrooms, double sinks and separate showers and bathtubs. A particularly nice touch in some of the rooms is the connecting beds and bathtubs, centring all relaxing activities in the middle of the room. Nespresso coffee machines are also provided, as well as a stocked mini bar and a large LCD TV. A small note for those wanting an environmentally friendly holiday - both the lights and the TV are on when entering the room, as well as other useless items wasting electricity. Perhaps mention this to staff, as we did, and they will think of changing their policy.

    • The first thing you assume the Radisson Blu Es is from the outside is a carpark. Needless to say it is not the most attractive of hotels but once you walk into the vast lobby, opinions start to change a little. Softly lit with a concierge desk to the right and the main reception right in the middle of the room, the lobby is well thought out and plenty big enough for the hundreds of guests that pass through it every day. Around the edge are placed large armchairs, work of famous Italian designer Gaetano Pasce for B&B Italia. The ground floor is reserved exclusively for meeting and function rooms whilst the lifts to the left will take you up to both the rooms and the restaurant, bar, spa and fitness room on the top floor. The restaurant doubles as the breakfast room and looks out over the rooftops of Rome, as well as providing a large terrace complete with swimming pool for guests to use during the summer months. Unfortunately the pool closes during the winter, but it is still possible to sit out on the terrace. If the terrace doesn't take your fancy, the hotel also has a comprehensive fitness room and a spa.

    • On the very top floor of the hotel are the adjoining Sette restaurant and Zest bar, providing stunning views over the rooftops of Rome and serving food and drink throughout the day. Bright and airy with huge glass windows to offer a panoramic view, the room provides a great setting for either a wake-up session or a romantic evening meal. Breakfast is served from 6.30-10.30 in the bar and restaurant, with plenty of space for all guests and a huge variety of hot and cold options. You'll be seriously spoilt for choice here so leave extra time to savour both food and view, over a fresh cup of Italian coffee. Lunch and dinner can also be taken in either the bar or the restaurant. The Zest menu is slightly more simple and perfect for those needing a quick meal in between meetings or sightseeing. The Sette menu is a little more comprehensive and offers some extremely fine examples of local Italian cuisine. Be adventurous and try the cockerel or squid and however sorely you might be tempted, avoid the fish and chips option!

    • Also located on the top floor is the hotel's spa, free for guests to use and offering a range of extra treatments to help you unwind. Comprising of a Jacuzzi, reclining bed and showers, it is not the most comprehensive of spas but for a complimentary service, it is worth using. Towels, fruit and chilled water are also provided. Three small treatment rooms offer a range of facial treatments, massages, scrubs and peels for an extra price and must be reserved in advance. Though quiet and relatively relaxing, the view over the Termini train station is slightly disappointing and a little at odds with the room. The fitness room is just next door and is small but very well-equipped with new weights, bikes and running machines, amongst others.

    • Due to its proximity to Termini station, the Radisson is extremely popular with business travellers needing to manoeuvre quickly around the capital. As well as its business clientele, this hotel's beautiful rooftop terrace and pool ensures that it attracts a whole host of celebrity guests, including the cast of Oceans 13 to film a scene by the poolside. With a total of 232 rooms, the hotel is large by Roman standards and has a similarly hearty breakfast to go along with it - certainly one of the largest spreads you'll find in the Italian capital.

      • Location 7.22

      The historic Empire Palace is well located and comfortable. It also has 'signed' designer decoration, as well as the Blue Bar, which was fitted by Philippe Stark and is considered as one of the more fashionable places for an evening drink. The Empire Palace does not have a panoramic terrace on the top floor, however, its courtyard, decorated by climbing plants and ornamental pots, allows you to have a light meal, a snack (such as a pastry or plate of fruit), or a cocktail when the weather permits.

      Breakfast with a view, and not only for the lucky few in the best rooms: the Marcella Royal has the asset of a terrace restaurant in the morning, under a veranda in winter, al fresco in summer also, overlooking all of Rome (and as a matter of fact, the Roman roofs, covered in red tiles, with garden-balconies here and there, really are picturesque). As for the rooms, various categories and styles are available: ideally, you should ask to see a few before choosing.

      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.

      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 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...

      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".

      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.

      A central hotel, situated a stone's throw away from Termini station (ideal for train journeys to the airport), Yes opened recently and has all the necessary comforts for modern day demands. Therefore the rooms are well soundproofed, they offer a small basket of hospitality products in the bathrooms (rare in mid range hotels) and the decoration is modern. To be recommended for accommodation without spending too much.

      • 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.

      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.

      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.
