Villa Spalletti

Courtesy Villa Spaletti

For a taste of a more lost-in-time, aristocratic atmosphere of Patrician Rome, look no further than Villa Spaletelli by the Quirinale Palace, named after the former count who once lived here. The decor leans more toward the grand than the boutique, with antique furniture, opulent tapestries hanging on the wall, and one of the finest private libraries in Rome. Don’t miss the hotel’s large spa (the Turkish bath is complimentary) and new rooftop terrace which includes an honesty bar, shaded day beds, and Jacuzzis that give a bird’s eye view over the city. (Rooms from $425)
