Hotel Rome G-Rough is an authentic trademark of luxury in a city where luxury is the norm. G- Rough is situated in a 16th-century townhouse near Piazza Navona. Hotel G-Rough is not your run of the mill five-star hotels, this 10-room boutique has forgone the gaudy gold and marble in favor of carefully curated grit: frescoes remain unrestored, wood beams are left exposed, plaster walls are kept unfinished. If gold and marble are not what you consider luxury or just not your style then check out G-Rough.
D.O.M Hotel is an intimate five-star property with 18 guest rooms and suites, each with direct views over the historic Via Giulia. Originally a 17th-century Claretian monastery, D.O.M is an abbreviation of “Deo Optimo Maximo,” a Latin inscription found on the church adjacent to the property. The boutique luxury hotel includes unique offerings like a private terrace spanning over 25 square meters with exclusive views of the rooftops and bell towers of Rome’s celebrated Regola quarter.
J.K. Place Roma is located in the former architecture department of the University of Rome— Staying in this 30-room boutique feels upscale and glamorous but not too bourgeois because of the down to earth staff and interiors, which feature wood-paneled walls, classical sculptures, custom midcentury-inspired furnishings (the canopy beds are works of art in their own right), and Italian marble baths. If you can get a reservation here do not hesitate for one second!
The Corner Rome is fabulous for proximity to bars, restaurants and transport links to all the major sites. A 10-minute walk from The Corner Rome is the legendary Colosseum and ten minutes more and you reach the ruins of the Roman Forum, a little more and you find the Trevi Fountain. The Vatican City is a little farther — you can take the metro from Manzoni, a short way from the hotel. After all that sightseeing you deserve a gelato. Try Il Gelato di San Crispino for a classic Italian ice cream.
The city is a very busy year-round destination, so if you want to ensure a room in one of the best places to stay in Rome, make sure you do your homework and book well ahead!
