For the location

Hotel Valadier

  • Hotel D'Inghilterra is a traditional and formal old-time favourite of the Hollywood elite. Elegant rooms and suites have silk curtains and antique furnishings while Cafe Romano serves lovely Mediterranean fare.

For romance

  Crossing Condotti

  • Crossing Condotti offers an oasis of privacy and luxury, with just six rooms and decor which is a happy marriage between nicely chosen Baroque antiques and a modern canvas.
  • Or, if you want the ultimate in romantic luxury, try La Residenza Napoleone, two incredibly opulent apartments dripping in old-world romance, with huge oils, taffeta silks and beautiful antiques. They also offer an in-house cook.
