Set in Rome's lovely Trastevere neighbourhood, the stately VOI Donna Camilla Savelli Hotel occupies a 17th-century convent designed by famed Baroque architect, Francesco Borromini. Fans of 'To Rome With Love' may recognise it -- Woody Allen shot some scenes here during filming.
The hotel is a 30-minute walk from the sights in the historic center, but its serene atmosphere and tranquil garden makes it ideal for a quiet retreat. For local sightseeing, the Botanical Garden and Villa Farnesia are both within 10 minutes' on foot, and there's a bus stop just around the corner to take you into the city.
This is a boutique hotel so services are limited, but there's an on-site bar and a full buffet breakfast is served until 10:30am in the majestic dining room. Reception is open 24 hours a day and staff are super helpful. Don't miss the panoramic city views from the rooftop terrace.
Rooms -- fashioned from former cells -- are basic but spacious with terracotta tiles. Some suites have original wood-beamed ceilings and balconies with views of the garden, and all come with air conditioning, separate seating areas and a complimentary guidebook of Trastevere.
Travelzoo Tip: There’s no internet connection in the rooms, but free Wi-Fi is available in the common areas.
