Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 6.02 /10

    On Via Giulia, a stone's throw from the Tiber (near Mazzini bridge). There is no underground station in the immediate vicinity. De Termini (railway station and underground station), take bus 64. Corso Vittorio Emmanuel stop. The hotel is a 2-minute walk away.
    Fiumicino airport is around 16 mi away, Ciampino around 9 mi away. Transfer time is around 45 minutes from Fiumicino and 30 minutes from Ciampino.

    Accommodation 8.95 /10

    The 64 bedrooms include 23 superior rooms (215 sq ft), 35 deluxe rooms (269 sq ft) and 6 junior suites (323 sq ft). The latter can accommodate up to 3 people as they have two separate areas. As far as the view is concerned, the bedrooms overlook the surrounding street (Via Giulia and Via Besciani) or the building's internal courtyard (even though the rooms are well soundproofed, those who prefer a peaceful setting should opt for the latter). In terms of decor, if you can afford to stay in a suite you will find the surroundings refined and luxurious, the furniture being identical in all room categories. A little point to look out for (and to copy when you get home): the bedside tables are different on either side of the double bed. The one is wenge-style dark wood whereas the other is mahogany-style red wood. On the other hand, the colour of the walls (a green bordering on grey, which tends to absorb the light) gives the place a very serious, very business-like and rather unholiday-like feel.. But this is just one of the new trends sweeping Rome's hotels. A trend that goes hand in hand with impeccable comfort: flat screen television, air-conditioning, telephone and a mini-bar are all provided. Bathroom with bathtub or shower (depending on the available space), hair-dryer, bathrobes and 50ml "bath foam" hospitality products. As this is a very upmarket hotel the added luxury of perfumery hospitality products would have been nice...

    Overview 9.20 /10

    The St George is housed in an old but Roman building and has an ochre facade with windows framed by openwork shutters: it doesn't give away its age (a nice round 500 years old in 2008) or its past (it used to be a court). The inside, on the other hand, has a very clear modern air about it: luxurious yet refined travertine marble decor in beige and glossy brown tones. Subdued lighting, library lounge to one side, bar area to the other; the reception is located at the end of the corridor. None of theses areas has windows, which can give the impression of continuous night time. So why not move on to the glass roof-topped atrium. This area is used as a bar and then a restaurant at meal times. The tour of the property continues with the spa, which also has no windows. You will notice it less here, though, given the beautiful facilities, notably the hydrotherapy pool, in a room reminiscent of the old thermal baths. There are no mosaics, though, and it is done out in the same colours and the same materials as the rest of the hotel. If you would like to treat yourself to a massage, think about booking it as soon as you arrive: the spa has only 2 treatment booths. Be careful of the price, though: an energising or relaxing massage or a manual lymphatic drainage session (an hour-long treatment) costs around £73.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    As is the case with most of the large hotels in Rome, the St George has chosen to set aside its top floor as a terrace which houses an open-air restaurant and bar between April and October. meals under the wooden pergola or under tautened voiles and a panoramic view of the rooftops of Rome. When the weather is not so good guests eat inside, under the glass roof beyond the lobby or in the adjacent areas, one for the restaurant and the other for the wine bar. Recommended: the wine bar, as it serves wine by the glass (Italian only and therefore very carefully selected) for around £7-8. Given the upmarket nature of the hotel this is perfectly reasonable. Also recommended (still with a view to experiencing the latest Roman trends in terms of "chic lunch"): the set lunch menu, which consists of an hors-d'oeuvre (antipasto), a pasta dish, a salad, a dessert, mineral water and a glass of wine on the same (tray-sized) plate. This all comes to £32, the price of a "chic lunch". Well-informed gourmets will no doubt compare this to the dishes served à la carte: cheek of veal with sautéed potatoes, fillet of beef, ratafia vinaigrette sauce (as a change from balsamic), mullet with aubergines, etc. Excellent dishes but at a price of at least £23. As far as breakfast is concerned, it is served in the same area (under the glass roof and in the adjacent room) in the form of a nicely presented and tasty American buffet.

    To know

    The St George opened in 2007. It is housed in a former 16th Century court.
    This really is an exclusive hotel, with its 64 bedrooms and suites, which also boasts a spa with a hot water pool (36°C) with massage jets. It's just like in old thermal baths, but with the modern technology thrown in too.
    The St George is located near Rome's liveliest areas: the Piazza Navona (a 15-minute walk away) and Trastevere (on the other side of the Tiber, also a 15-minute walk away). On the Piazza Navona you will find a market atmosphere, cafes and street artists, whereas the Trastevere district is home to restaurants, bars and nightspots.
    Accommodation advice
    As this is a historical building and the surrounding area is very built-up, the bedrooms do not all have the views you may expect of a luxury hotel. Request a deluxe corner room or a room with a balcony on the 5th floor (also deluxe) so as not to be too close to the facades facing you.

      a neighbour of the Atlante Star hotel and owned by the same hotel group, the Atlante Garden is best visited between April and October: when its roof terrace is set up, for having a drink and appreciating the view (of Saint Peter's basilica on one side and Rome on the other). The rest of the year, the Atlante Garden is more of a city hotel: with rooms (recently renovated, thank goodness!), breakfast room, bar area and reception lounge. That's it?

      • Location 6.72

      Located in the historic centre of Rome, the Grand Hôtel de la Minerve is a monument in itself. It is a classified building, and has been a hotel since the 18th century. It has 4 suites with unique antique decor, and is topped by a terrace looking over the Rome of the Pantheon, of piazza Navona, a district lit up by classified monuments at night and little bothered by road traffic. If the hotel, given its high standing, is out of your budget range, just come for dinner or a drink. However, only do so from April to October, when the panoramic terrace is open.

      Very well situated for discovering the Vatican without even leaving the hotel, the Atlante Star is one of the few Roman hotels to have a panoramic view classified as world heritage by Unesco. From some rooms and from the restaurant, you have an excellent view of Saint Peter's basilica: superb at sunset. If the hotel is full, you can also stay at the Atlante Garden (belonging to the same hotel group and situated one street away), and then come to the Atlante Star for dinner.

      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.

      A small hotel located in the Piazza di Spagna district, the Daniels is a good compromise between mid-range accommodation, which is less chic, and an upmarket hotel, which are a lot more expensive. This is a good place to spend a weekend in Rome, as a couple or a family, for shopping, antiques and gardens (Villa Borghese Park begins at the top of the steps from Piazza di Spagna). Winter is the best time of year to visit in order to appreciate the luxury (which is quite rare) of the covered terrace on the top floor.

Central location, spacious rooms and a delightful private garden are all features of this prestigious hotel. Come prepared for grand hallways, contemporary art lining the walls and corridors and cosy corners to relax in.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.
