With a prime location in one of Rome's most upscale residential areas and sights such as the Spanish Steps within walking distance, the 5-star Aldrovandi Villa Borghese is the type of hotel that rarely offers discounts. However, exclusive to Travelzoo subscribers, stays at this luxury property, described as 'intimate' and 'achingly gorgeous' by Condé Nast Traveler, have been cut to just $206 (169€) per night, saving $113 off the regular rates.
This exclusive offer includes:
Condé Nast Traveler recognised the Aldrovandi Villa Borghese with a 2012 Gold List inclusion and 2011 Readers' Choice Award. Chef Oliver Glowig worked at a 2-Michelin Star restaurant in Capri before coming to Rome to open his restaurant at the hotel. Dishes at his gourmet establishment include marinated tuna belly with mustard poached pear sauce and ravioli filled with broccoli rabe, as well as cuttlefish with garlic, olive oil and chilli sauce.
A former convent and now a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, this 19th-century villa has a large private garden, a heated outdoor pool and fully equipped fitness room. A free shuttle to Via Veneto and the Spanish Steps is available.
Valid for stays until 27 February, 2013.
