Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 7.44 /10

    This is a hotel just waiting to welcome history lovers. Surrounded on all sides by some of Rome's most sought out museums and monuments, there is no better location if you're in Rome to lap up its bygone centuries. Located atop the Quirinale, the highest of Rome's seven famous hills, the neighbourhood is serenely peaceful with similarly magnificent-looking villas lining the streets. The Villa is virtually opposite the Quirinale Palace, home now to the official president of the Italian Republic. Just down the hill is the Fontana di Trevi, one of the most famous fountains in the world and always packed with tourists - the traditional legend goes that if you toss a coin into the water of the fountain, you will one day return to Rome. If you are looking for public transport, the Barberini metro station is only a ten minute walk away, whilst vespa hire is also recommended by the hotel for an extra fee.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    Each room at the Villa leaves absolutely nothing to be desired, both with regards to their decoration and the services that are provided. Rather than numbers, each of the twelve rooms is named after a roman neighbourhood. The first floor provides four romantic suites of 25 square metres, all uniquely decorated with antique furniture and gorgeous, wide windows looking out onto the Quirinale gardens, directly opposite the Villa. Two comfortable armchairs, a desk and a large LG TV accompany the bed, which is covered in handmade linen and lusciously soft cashmere rugs. The mini-bar, full of soft and alcoholic drinks and snacks, is complimentary and restocked each time you leave the room. The Count's art collection is again on display on the walls, completing the authentic and homely atmosphere. Through into the marble bathrooms, and again you will find everything you need. Double sinks, a bath and shower are complimented by Organic Bath products and a glamorous lightbulb-surrounded mirror to give the Hollywood touch. Upstairs on the second floor are the prestige suites, a little bigger at 35 square metres and with all the same luxuries and comforts. There is also a possibility of adjoining these rooms to a large living room, thus making a suite. Just across the Villa's garden are the two apartments, offering even more privacy and extra space. Here, the decoration is more contemporary, with splashes of the Villa's classic style appearing in the form of elegant portraits and antique furnishings. A small kitchenette is provided, always sparklingly clean and with a small extra charge for full use of all its equipment, including oven and dishwasher. Each of the two apartments has their own private terrace, where guests can enjoy the beautiful weather in peace.

    Overview 9.20 /10

    On the ground floor, the Villa offers three communal rooms for guests to use at their leisure throughout the day. The first is the parlour - high ceilinged and utterly breath-taking. In winter, a fire roars at the far end of the room and hanging tapestries or grand aristocratic portraits line the walls. Sofas and armchairs are clustered at each end of the room, with a complimentary self-service bar to one side. The huge, curtained windows look out onto the Villa's private gardens, complete with covered outside seating areas and high hedges to give added privacy. Next comes the small parlour, similarly decorated and equally as comfortable to sit and enjoy a drink or a book, and attached directly to the library which is often used for meetings and other functions. When it is not in use, however, the wooden panelled room is equipped with Count Spalletti's personal book collection and several writing desks for the use of the Villa's visitors. The dining room is also on the ground floor, less grand than the other communal rooms but still as classic, with crisp white table cloths covering the small tables and space around the edge for the buffet breakfast. To access the upper floors and the bedrooms, take the stunning sweeping staircase from reception and wander down the wide corridors, decorated with grand imperial maps and works of art from Count Spalletti's personal collection.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    A buffet breakfast is served in the dining every morning from 7:00am to 11:00am, with a huge choice of traditional Italian cuisine, as well as more international options. All products are local and completely organic, including delicious buffalo mozzarella and prosciutto ham. Other options include cereals, pastries, cheeses, yoghurts, fresh fruit and freshly squeezed juices. Otherwise, choose from a menu of hot dishes, including eggs, bacon and sausages. Room service is offered from 7:00am to 11:00pm, Lunch and dinner are available on request, for a minimum of six people, and the room provides a beautifully intimate environment in which to enjoy a meal with friends or family. The menu is again traditional Italian fare and uses only the freshest local ingredients for its dishes, be it meat, fish or pasta.

    Spa 8.7 /10

    The Villa Spalletti Trivelli is home to an intimate spa, located in the Villa's basement and provides all the features of a typical roman bath, as well as treatments and a fitness room. Softly lit, the spa is all carved stone and beautiful mosaics, exactly as you'd imagine a roman baths to have been. Wander through the caverns into the different rooms, each with their own unique purpose. The first cavern holds a large floating salt bath, to gently exfoliate and clean out your pores before you begin your treatments. Then comes the Turkish bath and hammam room, specifically for mud, hot oil and aromatherapy treatments, before entering the tepidarium with its large stone ledges on which to lie and let your muscles relax. Finally, guests can enter the frigidarium, a beautifully tranquil room with a trickling fountain, fruit and water where guests can relax between or after treatments. The spa also has six treatment rooms, with a huge variety of massages, beauty treatments and waxes on offer. The fitness centre is available to guests 24 hours a day and provides all the latest equipment for a daily workout.

    To know

    Still owned by Count Spalletti Trivelli, the Villa was not transformed into a hotel until 2003 when the Count and his wife decided to make their aristocratic home public. Wanting to keep as close to the original as possible, the family left most of the Villa's furniture in place, as well as giving lots of direction for the furnishing of the bedrooms. With 12 rooms and two separate apartments ideal for families, the Villa is private and peaceful, with a wonderful range of communal areas on offer for guests to use and admire. The hotel boasts an international clientele, with most guests coming from the UK and the USA to experience the best in Italian hospitality and stay in a hotel as full of roman culture as the city itself. It has also, unsurprisingly, welcomed a whole host of famous clients, including Liza Minnelli and many Italian politicians and stars looking for a little privacy away from the public eye.

      The Barocco is the hotel to book if you want to take photographs of the fountain in the Barberini square in all its different lights, in the morning, noon and evening. Indeed, several of the hotel's rooms look out onto the fountain, or overlook it (depending on the floor). As for its category, the Barocco is affordable. Its antique furnishings give a certain conviviality to the place, which is strengthened by the friendly welcome and service. If you are able to stay in one of the suites, this will be perfect: we particularly recommend the suites with a small balcony, overlooking the Barberini square.

      • Location 8.68

      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".

      If you want to try a slice of Hollywood class right in Rome's buzzing centre, the Intercontinental de la Ville is the only place to head. Huge revolving entrance doors and porters in top hats and tails will make you feel like you've stepped onto the set of an Audrey Hepburn movie. This classical hotel is all glittering chandeliers, grandeur and glamour, with a great restaurant to boot. Its size and style make it a hot choice for weddings and dinners, with a delightful central courtyard and rooftop terrace, offering views over the sprawling city. Perfect for business clientele, as well as those wanting to enjoy the city for leisure, this hotel will provide you with a stylish base from which to explore it.

      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...

      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 7.27

      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.

      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.

      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 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.

      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.
