The New Version of the Rome Hotel Scene

Rome …the Eternal City, was voted one of the top summer destinations of 2014 by the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA).  Once home to a world leading empire and the destination to which all roads led, Rome still remains a magical place today, blending modern day life with antiquities of a lost time.  The appeal of the timeless and the electric draw of the now merge more dynamically here than in any other European city. Neighborhoods in the heart of town—the ones we thought we knew—have been reinvigorated with stylish hotels and boutiques.  Here are some of the top Hotels to check out.

Piazzadispagna9

Piazzadispagna9 is a  new hotel in  the heart of Rome, on the third floor of a XV century building overlooking the Spanish steps square.  This great hotel is a fusion of art, design, and amazing hospitality. It features an exclusive Maison where you spend time, but also an Art Gallery in which to be surprised by new creations.  At number 9  you will find private guest rooms, an eclectic living room and a Spa.

Located in Via Giulia, one of the most iconic streets of the eternal city’s centre, D.O.M is a 5 star luxury hotel set in a 17th Century aristocratic palace with 24 rooms. D.O.M hotel emanates the atmosphere of an aristocratic household, a unique combination of that which is both sacred and luxurious: many original structural components, such as the exposed brick walls, coffered wooden ceilings and the blocks of marble with ancient religious inscriptions dating back to the Renaissance, were wisely retained and serve as a natural backdrop to the various pieces of both modern and vintage furniture, animalier details, and contemporary works of design and art.

The sacredness of the environment exists in direct contrast with the cosmopolitan glamour of the hotel and this intentional dichotomy makes D.O.M Hotel unique in its genre: a metropolitan refuge capable of evoking nostalgia with its decadent ambiance typical of ancient Rome, while maintaining an international and transverse character.
