Hotel de la Ville, Rome, Italy
Rocco Forte Hotels execute everything so perfectly that it's very hard to fault their hotels. The service, the décor, the food, the location, the attention to detail are all pretty faultless, and this luxurious Rome hotel is no exception. Centrally located near the Spanish Steps yet on a quiet street away from the bustle, it's a playful and colourful hotel but has a grandeur too, in keeping with the three historic palazzi it occupies. You can choose from a lovely rooftop bar or an interior courtyard setting and there are two stylish restaurants, an elegant mustard-coloured lounge, a gym and a plush spa. The bedrooms have lovely touches such as textured wallpapers, high quality furniture and carved mirrors.
Your expert reviewer
While you're in the perfect location for a visit to Rome - centrally located, near major sights - the hotel is down a relatively quiet street.
It's only a 10-minute walk north to Villa Borghese, and south to the Trevi Fountain. You're not too far from Termini station.
By plane: fly to Rome Fiumicino from London (2 hours 25 minutes) or Manchester (2 hours 40 minutes). The hotel is a 45-minute drive from the airport. Paid on-site parking available. skyscanner.net
Style & Character
Guests tend to be affluent couples typically aged between 35 and 70, or families with teenaged children. We loved the impressive mix of bold colours and classy yet fun contemporary design against such a sumptuous historic backdrop.
Service & Facilities
The public areas are delightful - from the very attractive lounges and restaurants, to the roof terrace and courtyard.
- On-site parking
- Free Wi-Fi
Our room exuded a calm grandeur, with its dark green walls and upscale fixtures, fittings and furniture. We had a balcony looking out onto the courtyard. Bold artworks, carved mirror frames and classy black lights add to the elegance.

Food & Drink
There's a huge wine list - 56 pages - and sommelier Alessandro Ragozzino knows his wines very well. At Da Sistina, the tuna 'roast beef' starter really almost passes off as roast beef - it's delicious and very different.
