Why We Love This Hotel

  • This city-centre hotel is housed in a former palazzo on a cobbled street
  • It's a 10-minute walk from Villa Borghese and a 20-minute walk from the Spanish Steps
  • The wood-panelled restaurant serves Mediterranean cuisine
  • There's a piano bar in converted stables and a fitness room


Many of Rome's iconic sights are within easy reach of the Empire Palace Hotel, which is set among grand buildings on a cobbled street near the elegant Via Veneto. The lodging occupies a restored 19th-century palazzo, the former home of Venetian nobility, and is around 10 minutes' walk from Villa Borghese, with its landscaped gardens and noted art gallery, and the imposing Teatro dell'Opera di Roma. The Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain are about 20 minutes' walk away, while the Roman Forum and the Colosseum in the ancient heart of the city are a 20-minute taxi ride (or 30-minute walk) from the hotel.

The elegant façade of the Empire Palace Hotel opens to interiors with a period feel, including a reception area with gilt-edged columns and a night-sky ceiling fresco, and a warm lounge with marble floors, leather armchairs and original works of art. Guests can dine on Mediterranean dishes in the wood-panelled restaurant, sip cocktails in the striking Blue Bar, housed in converted stables, and relax in the leafy courtyard, which features a fountain. The hotel also has a fitness room.

Rooms have cherry-wood furniture and a neutral colour palette. Each has a marble bathroom with designer toiletries, as well as a sitting area, a TV and free Wi-Fi. Suites add separate living areas, while some have jetted tubs.
