1.Hotel Eden

Since opening its doors in 1889, Hotel Eden has served as a temporary home in central Rome for everyone from foreign aristocrats to renowned celebrities to typical tourists. Recent visitors said that this incredibly luxurious (and expensive) property practically exudes elegance thanks to its 17-month renovation, which was finished in 2017. The hotel's lobby (where the classy La Libreria bar is located) features marble floors, high-end furniture and an abundance of gold accents. Its 98 rooms and suites offer a similarly neutral but sophisticated aesthetic. All of the accommodations include artwork, complimentary Wi-Fi access, Nespresso coffee makers and flat-screen TVs. Plus, butler service is available upon request. Standard bathrooms are covered in marble, mirrors and gold, and guests can expect to find luxury amenities like Italian Bottega Veneta toiletries. After settling into their lodgings, visitors can enjoy gourmet meals and panoramic views at La Terrazza, Hotel Eden's top floor restaurant. For a more relaxed vibe, Il Giardino Ristorante & Bar has both classic Italian fare and healthier menu options. Despite its opulent design, stellar location and high-class restaurants, previous guests were most impressed with Hotel Eden's exceptional employees and service.

2.J.K. Place Roma

ocated in the heart of Rome's fashion district, J.K. Place Roma is filled with designer furniture, rugs and lighting by Michele Bönan. Notable artwork hangs from the walls and royal blue velvet sofas complement the ultramodern yet elegant vibe. The hotel has 30 rooms and suites, the most basic of which feature LED TVs, gilded mirrors, free Wi-Fi access, complimentary minibars and balconies with Eternal City views. Master Rooms include hardwood floors, rosewood canopy beds, Italian marble bathrooms and walk-in closets. Nestled on top of the hotel is the J.K.Cafe, a venue that houses a lounge, bar and restaurant. Recent visitors said the bountiful breakfast served inside is a treat, and many diners appreciated that the chefs had options to satisfy vegan and gluten-free diets as well. The Italian restaurant is also open for brunch, lunch and dinner. Another highlight worth noting is the personalized service; past guests said they had never stayed at a hotel with such friendly helpful staff members. The one downside to this property is the steep cost, though travelers point out that prior stays here were more than worth the price and recommend saving up to splurge on a suite. And as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property participates in the Leaders Club rewards program.

3.Rome Cavalieri, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts

Carrying the Waldorf Astoria brand name, Rome Cavalieri lives up to expectations with its elegant accommodations and plentiful on-site amenities. Rooms here feature a warm golden and navy decor, work desks and marble bathrooms. Additionally, all rooms and suites feature private balconies, seating areas and views of the surrounding neighborhood or the city center. Outside of the property's accommodations, guests will find Rome's only three-star Michelin restaurant, La Pergola. Recent guests said their meals here were divine and highly recommend dinner at the rooftop restaurant one night. Rome Cavalieri also houses an additional restaurant and a few bars. Aside from eateries, the property features an extensive art collection, a top-notch spa, tennis courts and several pools. While recent travelers appreciated the amenities available, some were disappointed with the additional fees required at a hotel of this caliber. (Charges apply to use the pools and their lounge chairs, to access the spa and to play on the tennis courts.) You'll find this property nestled into a hilltop overlooking Rome, about 5 miles northwest of the city center; there is a seasonal shuttle that takes guests into town Monday through Saturday from April to October.

4.The St. Regis Rome

Built as a grand palace in 1894, The St. Regis Rome is still filled with ornate treasures from its heyday. Some of the property's most exquisite original details include Murano glass light fixtures, a handcrafted stucco staircase and the famous Ritz Ballroom, which features Italian frescoes, chandeliers, gilded mirrors and candelabras. Superior Rooms offer wooden inlaid furniture, antiques acquired from state residences and velvet armchairs, while suites come with The St. Regis brand's legendary personal butler service – a hallmark of the brand since 1904. Outside of the property's accommodations, guests will find CÆLUM Lounge & Bar, an upscale restaurant and bar designed to match the hotel's Belle Époque period details that serves Mediterranean cuisine. The hotel also houses Di...Vino, a private wine cellar with over 500 labels in an alcove of the Baths of Diocletian. Recent guests appreciated the hotel's prime location near Rome's Piazza Della Repubblica and that Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and redeem points here. 

5.Baglioni Hotel Regina

Recent travelers say that the Baglioni Hotel Regina sits in a pretty sweet spot in Rome. From the hotel, Piazza di Spagna (home to the Spanish steps), Galleria Borghese, Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon are all within a mile radius, making it easy to explore some of Rome's most stunning assets. Though the Baglioni is an eyeful in its own right: Guests found the hotel to be just beautiful, frequently complimenting the Old World decor that permeates the interiors, especially in the lobby (think cascading staircases, marble columns and tiered chandeliers). Rooms are a little more toned down though still elegant, equipped with modern amenities such as high-speed internet access and televisions. As for on-site facilities, the hotel has its own spa outfitted with a fitness center, beauty room, sauna, Jacuzzi and Turkish bath. There's also a full-service restaurant, the Brunello Bar and Restaurant, which serves dishes infused with Mediterranean flavors. While guests appreciated the extra amenities, the biggest standout for many was the hotel's top-notch service. Lodgers lauded the staff for their accommodating nature and overall friendliness and highlighted the concierge as being very helpful for navigating the city.
