The Rome Hotels to Book for Spring
With its perfect temps and charming wisteria in full bloom, spring in Roma is one of the best times to visit, before scorching heat and the inevitable tourist hordes engulf the capital come June. Should you be seeking an intimate place to bed down, check into one of these covetable cribs.
What: Hotel De' Ricci
Best For: Vino enthusiasts
Rome may be home to some of the world’s finest enotecas, but who gives a jot when you’ve got an underground tasting room, guest-relations staff doubling as sommeliers, bottle-filled minibars and rooms kitted with Coravins at your fingertips? This eight-suite grape escape is the go-to for oenophiles looking for a true taste of the city, with the option of personalised visits to wineries upon request. Better yet, the residence boasts an equally intoxicating Mid-Century decor across eight swoon-worthy boudoirs. The spacious, terraced and terracotta-hued suite is our pick.

What: The H'All Tailor Suite
Best For: Foodies
Fourteen minimalist chambers rocking parquet flooring, contemporary art, four-poster beds and modern accents are a feast for the eyes, while owner and Michy-spangled pan-man Riccardo di Giacinto’s on-site culinary temple All’Oro tickles tastebuds with trad-meets-mod Italian eats. The gourmet breakfast comprising the region’s finest gastronomic treats (think creamy formaggio and salumi), and served with bubbles is truly diet-derailing. You are in Rome, after all.

What: Hotel Luxus
Best For: Style kitties
Insta-snapping stylistas bed-down at this bold, boutique boîte repping a prime situ in Rome’s boho Monti nabe. Between the eye-popping, jewel-toned rooms, second-floor city vistas, art tomes, sceney, flora-spangled eatery Madre, and the pretty pastel edifices of the locale’s surrounding streets, you’ll have more photo opps to capture than you can shake a selfie stick at.
Largo Angelicum, 4. Monti. +39 06 3209 1281. luxuryboutiquehotels.it
What: GKK Exclusive Private Suites
Best For: Escaping the hordes
Minutes from the Spanish Steps, this smart six-suite nook is smartly outfitted in calming blues and Fendi fabrics for stylish respite from the tourist hordes. Shack up in the Private Movie Suite kitted with a mega TV and Dolby audio system, or the Gran Suite Spa with a marble-clad, waterfall spa room and you’ll be tempted to stay all day.
Via delle Colonnette, 22. Corso. +39 06 323 1817. gkkroma.com
What: Palazzo Scanderbeg
Best For: Apartment living
This former C.16th palazzo was a pasta museum before being converted into a luxuriously modern 11-suite townhouse, perfect for extended stays in the city. Okay, so the exquisite Poltrona Frau chairs, Cappellini sofas, Persian carpets and contemporary art may look straight out of a design showroom, but with mega living rooms, piazza vantages, breezy terraces, multiple bedrooms and bathrooms (or a bi-level annex apartment with its own entrance entirely), we’ll happily call this place home.
