    Location 6.06 /10

    Situated on Via di Ripetta, Via del Corso's slightly quieter neighbour, this hotel can only be described as right in the middle of things. The throbbing streets provide shopping, hidden churches and strange buildings to wander into at your leisure, whilst only a short walk away are some of the most famous attractions that Rome has to offer. The Spanish Steps are around a five minute walk away and claim the title of the widest staircase in Europe. Here you will also find the Spagna metro station. It is good to know that Rome's metro system is not particularly extensive but buses and trams will take you to most of the main centres and taxis are plentiful though a little expensive.

    Follow the Via del Corso to its very end and you eventually reach the Vittoriano Palace, in all its marble glory. Many of the locals detest the building itself but it does provide magnificent (and free) views over the city, especially at sunset. From there, you need only cross the road to find the Roman Forum and walk a couple of minutes more to find yourself in front of the crumbling Colosseum.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The real selling point to this hotel's rooms and suites is that some are equipped with a kitchenette, allowing you the freedom to eat what you want, when you want. This set-up works very well for families, especially with young children, who need to be prepared for odd or regular meal times. The decoration in each room is unique, with some beautiful pieces of antique furniture and large beds. To fit the deep wooden antique furniture, the bedrooms sport lusciously soft carpets and curtains in rich blues and reds. The walls and bed sheets however, are lighter so as not to distract from the furniture. Guests have a possibility of nine different categories to choose from - each category is split into either royal or executive, royal rooms having been refurbished in 2011 and executive rooms offering a more dated option. Though the royal bathrooms are obviously a little fresher, all are light marble and white porcelain features. Though all are different shapes, they are a good size and exceptionally clean, with large mirrors and plenty of light. Baths and showers feature throughout, with the possibility of two bathrooms in some suites. In the more luxurious rooms, bathrobes and slippers are provided, whilst a range of Penhaligon's products are on offer throughout. For families, the deluxe apartment is recommended, spread over two floors and with plenty of space for children to play and adults to relax. Room service is available from 7:00am-10:30pm, offering a range of snacks, cocktails and other alcoholic and soft drinks.

    Overview 9.20 /10

    The Residenza di Ripetta, with its 69 rooms, is the perfect halfway house between a large chain and a smaller boutique hotel. Be prepared for grandeur as you enter the large, high-ceilinged lobby with its strange mix of modern and renaissance art. To the left are the conference suites and meeting rooms whilst turning right takes you into a small living room, maintained in a 17th century style and dimly lit, with large portraits adorning the walls. Through the living room is the Café di Ripetta, the hotel's American bar which offers a comfortable and relaxed place to dine in the evenings. The inner garden is just a little further on and completely concealed from the busy street. During the summer, it is used as part of the restaurant but is always equipped with wicker furniture and comfortable cushions from which to enjoy the well-tended greenery. To really complete the serenity of your stay, ask for a room looking out onto it. The staff, though sometimes a little busy, are generally helpful and service in the restaurants is very professional, though lacking somewhat in friendliness.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    Breakfast at the Residenza di Ripetta is served from 7:00am-10:00am in the hotel's restaurant as a buffet-style continental breakfast, with tea, coffee and other hot drinks all available. For the evenings, the Ripetta offers its clients a relaxed yet intimate dining option in the form of the Café di Ripetta. Taking the style of an American bar, the Café holds 33 people for a dinner service only and provides a typically Italian menu with an artistic twist in the presentation of the dishes. The restaurant is remarkably small but feels cosy and homely, with plenty of soft furnishings and antique furniture. The bar is directly connected to the restaurant through a small archway and is similarly decorated in warm, sombre colours and antique paintings for the walls. During the rest of the day, the bar serves light snacks and salads, as well as a large selection of exotic-sounding cocktails.

    To know

    This 17th century hotel stays true to its beautiful original architecture, despite the fact that it was renovated in 2011. Its style is certainly unique, combining the 1600s architecture with splashes of modern art by world famous artists throughout the communal spaces - a combination that can look slightly odd and unnatural at times! The hotel's highlight is its delightful inner garden, open for dining during the spring and summer months and providing the perfect setting for a light lunch or romantic dinner. Heaters are provided if it becomes chilly and the menus are varied and the food of a good quality. The hotel also has a garage, which offers reduced rates to guests wanting to park there and provides a valet service if desired. Wi-Fi is free in common areas of the hotel but there is a charge to extent it to individual rooms and suites.

      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.

      • Location 5.97

      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.

      • 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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      • 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.
