Built in the 1900s, the Villa Spalletti Trivelli is a monumental mansion set on a quiet side street, one block from the Via Nazionale shopping corridor in the center of Rome. It may be grand, but it feels like a real home -- it is still owned and run by Count Gian Giacomo Spalletti Trivelli and his wife.

The hotel was named Best City Hotel in the 2014 Condé Nast Johansens European awards, and is in an ideal location, right next to the Quirinale Palace. The tall hedges surrounding the property’s formal gardens help you forget you are in the city center.

A 10-minute walk will take you to the Trevi Fountain, and it is 15 minutes on foot to the Spanish Steps. The metro station (Barberini) is a 10-minute walk away for easy transfers to Vatican City.

Spend the evening relaxing in the hotel’s library, which is lined with antique books, before heading out for dinner or dining in. The hotel has no on-site restaurant, but the chef will whip up meals on request, with advance notice. Don’t miss the complimentary cocktail hour where you can mix your own from the drinks trolley.

Access to a wellness center, with a Turkish bath, treatment room and a well-equipped gym is also free, as is Wi-Fi -- they’ll even lend you a laptop if you haven’t brought your own. In the mornings, breakfast is a sumptuous buffet spread of Italian cakes, organic yogurt, Parma ham and buffalo mozzarella. Eggs, bacon and pancakes are made to order.

The 12 individually decorated rooms are named after Rome’s historic districts. Each is well sized, with high ceilings, linen sheets and marble bathrooms with separate walk-in showers and deep soaking tubs. Half face the hotel’s garden and half the Quirinale, some with a balcony. Free mini bars, filled with sodas, beer and spirits, are a welcome touch.

From the press:

  • "This gem of a hotel offers a rare opportunity to experience home life as lived by a Roman nobleman and his family a century ago" -- Frommer’s
  • "A glorious mansion in central Rome, Villa Spalletti Trivelli has upped the ante for luxurious stays in the capital" -- Lonely Planet
  • "Small and luxurious, with Neoclassical overtones, this early-20th-century villa -- on a side street on patrician Quirinal Hill -- is also refined and subtle" -- Time Magazine
