The 5 best boutique hotels Rome

ABITART HOTEL

Via Pellegrino
Matteucci 10
Testaccio and
Aventino
+39 (0)6 454 3191
www.abitarthotel.com

Abitart is a keenly designed contemporary hotel accentuated with colourful avantgarde artwork throughout, such as the playful Bocca delle Bugie (we’ll let you look for that one). The hotel is located just down the street from Eataly, the fine food emporium, in an unassuming neighbourhood with great restaurants and bars.

HOTEL SAN ANSELMO

Piazza S. Anselmo 2
Testaccio and
Aventino
+39 (0)6 570 057
www.aventinohotels.com

Sofia Coppola would probably feel at home in this whimsically elegant hotel, which mixes stucco molding and Art Deco design with eclectic contemporary artwork. Housed inside a villa on the Aventine hill, Hotel San Anselmo captures the verdant tranquility unique to the neighbourhood.

HOTEL TEATRO PACE

Via del Teatro
Pace 33
Centre West
+39 (0)6 687 9075
www.hotelteatropace.com

Once a cardinal’s palace in the 16th century, Hotel Teatro Pace maintains the same Baroque ambience, with charming narrow hallways and stone staircases. Its rooms have exquisitely restored parquet floors, complimenting the mahogany furniture.

CASACAU

Via Torino 149
Trident
+39 (0)6 69 29 0159
www.casacau.com

Casacau puts a novel approach on room service. Each room – impeccably designed – has a dining space and open kitchen. Guests are provided with fresh groceries for breakfast. For lunch and dinner, cooks from the excellent restaurant Stazione di Posta are available on request to cook inside your room.

CASA FABBRINI

Vicolo delle
Orsoline 13
Trident
+39 (0)6 324 3706
www.casafabbrini.it

Hidden within a quiet cul-de-sac off the Spanish Steps, Casa Fabbrini feels like a celebrity’s pied-a-terre. Each room (there are only four) in the 16th-century building has its own character, some with a terrace. They share a community kitchen that’s mixed with retro and country wares.
