Quiet and Secluded Hotels in Rome

Rome has a lot to offer, from the obvious sights such as the Colosseum, the Vatican, and Trevi Fountain, to less obvious but equally fascinating sites such as the catacombs; not to mention the delicious food and vibrant nightlife! So it is hardly surprising that most people imagine a break in the Eternal City to be a nonstop hectic whirl. But there are several well-positioned hotels, away from the main sights, which are wonderfully peaceful and very much geared towards travellers who are wanting a quieter stay. These hotels are set in leafy, residential neighbourhoods or in the historic centre, where the streets are quiet. Some of the hotels have rooftop terraces with wonderful views over the city, while others boast intimate spa facilities. Our hotel experts have hand-picked their favourite quiet and secluded hotels in Rome selected on their service, amenities, and location. Whether you want a full-on luxury spa resort, a romantic hideaway, or an all-out close to the ancient sights option, there is something for everyone here. So why not browse through our collection to start planning your next city break?
