The setting for Hotel de la Ville is undeniably good, overlooking the Spanish Steps and with many highlights of Rome, numerous restaurants and boutique outlets all within easy walking distance; perfection.
And more than a little bit of that history finds its way inside too, through antique furnishings, dazzling chandeliers and a classical splendour that befits the ornate stone balconies and original façade of the hotel’s exterior.
Then, head to the top floor, and in addition to Hotel de la Ville’s other Michelin-standard restaurants and atmospheric lobby lounge, you also have a rooftop bar, where views over Rome with an accompanying cocktail is as good as compulsory, particularly at sunset.
Unusually for such a central Rome property, Hotel de la Ville also boasts a fantastic, modern and wonderfully well-equipped spa. Here lies a fine mix of treatments and relaxation therapies, as well as a sauna, steam room, ice fountains, a plunge pool, Jacuzzi, foot baths and innovative salt-inhalation room, a gym and yoga studio, leaving you feeling in tip-top shape to enjoy the city’s many sights even more.
In fact, when it comes to exploring Rome, look no further than the concierge team at Hotel de la Ville, as they offer everything from Ferrari sightseeing tours to restaurant recommendations, leaving you spoilt between the gourmet onsite and numerous nearby options to choose from.
Your final sense of place comes in the guestrooms and suites here, which all have a distinctly Italian feel to them, Romanesque ornaments and for some, fantastic views of the city to be enjoyed from either your oversized windows or private furnished balcony.
Expect classical, grand interior design for every guestroom and suite at Hotel de la Ville, with antique-style furniture, high ceilings and ornate cornicing setting the tone, plus ancient-looking ornaments and artefacts dotted throughout; a lovely touch. Thick drapes frame every window or balcony door, and bathrooms are clad in Italian marble, yet within these decidedly regal looking spaces you will also find smart TVs, a top-end minibar, walk-in shower and Bluetooth speakers for the bathroom, Irene Forte toiletries, a king or super-king-size bed and for some, a furnished terrace too. You’ll benefit from views of the city or central courtyard depending on exactly where your room is positioned in the building, and if looking for something seriously special – opt for one of the larger suites for personal concierge services, a wet bar and lots of additional extras, plus significantly larger floorplans for each.
Of the available food and drink spots at Hotel de la Ville, it is perhaps their rooftop bar which really stands out, as views across the ancient Rome skyline are accompanied by planted herbs, potted olive trees and comfy patio chairs to enjoy it all from, plus a healthy drinks menu, of course. There is then Michelin-standard Italian and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine available in the main restaurant, as well as al fresco dining areas, a lobby lounge and long list of fine wines found in each, making for a memorable gastronomic journey before even leaving your front door!
With the highlights of Rome on your doorstep, it’s fair to say that any onsite facilities found within the Hotel de la Ville are a bonus, none more so than the spa, where you’ll find enriching treatments and massage therapies alike, ice fountains, a steam room and sauna, salt-inhalation room, foot baths and a plunge pool too. There’s also a modern gym and yoga studio here, while elsewhere the helpful concierge can arrange everything from valet parking to restaurant reservations or dry-cleaning, should you need it.
Activities and Entertainment
Being situated above the Spanish Steps, you could not be better placed as this is one of the ultimate central Rome hotel locations, meaning all the city’s top attractions are within easy walking distance. These include the Piazza del Popolo, Quartiere Coppedè, Villa Borghese, Trevi Fountain and countless restaurants, bars and boutiques, plus the Roman Forum, Coliseum, Sistine Chapel Pantheon a little further afield, all of which can be visited either on foot, by bike, helicopter, vespa or Ferrari, courtesy of the Hotel de la Ville concierge.
Rome, Italy. Hotel de la Ville sits right on the Spanish Steps, meaning instant access to the surrounding restaurant and bars, though also the many nearby highlights of Rome, while the capital’s Leonardo da Vinci International Airport can be reached in around 45 minutes by car.
