‘Poet’s corner’ in central Rome, where Italian opulence meets boutique charm
Once a palazzo, now a boutique city retreat, Hotel d’Inghilterra is a grand residence with a proud history. Many famous names have stepped through its doors, with Romantic poet John Keats once calling the hotel home. Today, each individually styled room mixes sumptuous décor with modern design and a free Handy smartphone for free international calls and internet.. While the suites are the jewel in the palace’s crown. The Penthouse boasts a private terrace dotted with jasmine and citrus trees, and views across Rome.
If fine dining with a side of people watching appeals, Café Romano Lounge Bar is ideal. Chic black and white tables spill out on to the street and each dish looks like a work of art. After dessert, pull up a black leather stool at the Bond Bar. Glitzy and glamorous, it’s just the place for gourmet coffee and cocktails before bed beckons.
Step out of Hotel d’Inghilterra and the undying charm of the ‘Eternal City’ is all around. Pop a coin in your pocket before you stroll to the Trevi Fountain. After you’ve tossed it into the water, wander onwards to the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon and Piazza Navona – all nearby. When it’s time for a rest from sightseeing, the stylish boutiques of Via dei Condotti are a big draw. Not to mention the espresso bars and trattorias that line the winding streets around the hotel.
Enjoy your stay!
