So, I’ve been to Rome several times in the past, and decided to post here some of the relevant information gathered for future travelers. From Lisbon, I can get into Rome with a direct flight in less than 3h, and paying less than 200EUR for a roundtrip (excluding low-cost airlines where it’s even cheaper).
Rome has a lot to see, and even been there several times there’s always something new to see. That’s a true, and if you been to Rome before, you know what I’m talking.
There are several locations where you can stay in Rome, and plenty of nice hotels, from cheap to expensive, from basic to luxury, but here goes below my Top 3 recommendations for luxury boutique hotels in Rome. Although I always recommend to stay not very far from the Vatican, there are other attractive locations as well:
1) Babuino 181: At the moment I write this article, this beautiful hotel is ranked #18 of 1270 hotels in Rome. This has to mean something right? Located just few minutes walking from Piazza del Popolo, this is a modern-chic, upmarket boutique hotel, centrally located, with only 24 rooms. It’s perfect for someone who wants something luxury but not extravagant and peacefull without having 300 rooms.

2) Rose Garden Palace: This is considered one of the best 4-star boutique hotels in Rome, located in Via Venetto, few blocks away from the American Embassy and nearby Villa Borghese and 10 min walking from the metro station. It has 65 rooms and it’s also often used for business visitors.

3) VOI Donna Camilla Savelli Hotel: Because I love Trastevere district, not at night like most but during day. It’s stepping into a different place in Rome, and this beautiful building, once a 17th century convent, it’s an amazing romantic hotel, featuring 78 rooms and located in the heart of Rome.
