Five Star Rome hotels

Most popular areas in Rome for 5 star hotels

There’s an abundance of palatial 5-star hotels sprinkled across Rome’s modern center, in the 1st Municipality. Many of these stately accommodations are grouped around the southern end of the lush green Villa Borghese Gardens. Similarly, there are plenty of 5-star hotels gathered at the western end of these gardens, near the white stone Basilica of Santa Maria del Popolo. The Ponte area of the central Old Rome district – where labyrinth like streets wind to the glimmering River Tiber – also offers luxury hotels.

The Boscolo Exedra Roma is a central luxury hotel boasting an array of indulgent amenities, including a full-service spa, starry rooftop terrace, and a shimmering outdoor pool. The Hotel Splendide Royal, beside the Villa Borghese Gardens, celebrates opulence. Its vast guestrooms, foyers, and fine in-house restaurants are bathed in gold and Neo-Classical fittings – there are park view balconies and a rooftop terrace, too. The Grand Hotel Ritz, in the Northern Centre district, also champions a full-service spa and health club.

Where to find the best restaurants in Rome

Rome’s restaurant scene celebrates fine Italian and Mediterranean food – think hand-pressed pasta, refreshing salads, and delicate fish dishes. Dine in one of the traditional, upscale Rome restaurants in the small squares and narrow streets of Old Rome. Many of Rome’s flashy 5-star hotels house fine dining restaurants – furnished with artworks and antiques – serving Mediterranean cuisine with an innovative edge. There are Michelin-rated and Michelin-star establishments dotted across all central Rome – from chic seafood-focused bare brick dining rooms to international rooftop restaurants.

The most popular things to do in Rome

Rome is an architecture lover’s paradise. Stop by the Colosseum, in the central Colosseo district. The Colosseum is an ancient gladiatorial amphitheater – a 4-story oval structure of sand-colored stone punctured with arches. The Colosseum’s majesty is matched by the Pantheon, a vast former Roman temple. Looming Corinthian columns support a traditional triangle-shaped facade, constituting the entryway, which leads to a cave-like cylindrical building, capped by a coffered concrete stone dome. For a glimpse of everyday ancient Roman life, visit the Roman forum, a spattering of former governmental building ruins. Experience a separate side of Rome at Vatican City, a walled, independent state and headquarters of the Catholic Church. Here, see the Sistine Chapel, a 15th-century religious building with an intricate ceiling mural painted by Michelangelo.

Best ways to get around Rome

Rome has an extensive and comprehensive public transport network of buses, night buses, trams, and an underground metro line. These public transport options will carry you almost anywhere you need to go in the city – if you’re in Rome for a few days, you can buy 48-hour or 72-hour passes which grant access to the whole transport network. If you’re looking for a quick, easy, and comfortable way to cruise around the city, travel via taxicab. Many 5 star Rome hotels also offer town car service.
