St. Regis Rome

The St. Regis always know how to take luxury hotels to a new level and the St. Regis Rome is no different! The hotel is around 15 minutes walk from the likes of the Trevi Fountain, so it is not too close but also no too far. Therefore we think it is a great choice for travelers looking to be a little out of the way rather than in the hustle and bustle of it all.

Fendi Private Suites

If you prefer minimalism, neutral tones and understated luxury, the good news is Fendi Private Suites have nailed the brief! Located above the flagship store in Rome, these suites are in a great location and extremely discreet. So if you’re looking for Rome’s best secret luxury hotel outpost, this just might be it.
