Via Ludovisi 49, Rome, Latium, 00187, Italy

A recent refurbishment of the Hotel Eden has put it back in the running for one of Rome's top luxury lodgings: once a favorite haunt of Ingrid Bergman, Hemingway, and Fellini, this superlative hotel combines dashing elegance, exquisitely lush decor, and stunning vistas of Rome with true Italian hospitality. Set atop the Villa Borghese (and a bit out of the centro storico for serious sightseers), this hotel was opened in the late 19th century and quickly became famous for its balcony views and Roman splendor. Even the most basic room here is elegantly designed: banquette window seats, rich mahogany furniture, soaring ceilings, Napoléon III–style sofas, and fine linens allow you to dive deep into the whoooooossh of luxury here. Topping it all off is one of Rome's most fabled "food-with-a-view" restaurants, the Michelin-starred Terrazza dell'Eden, whose perch offers views that are truly "panaromantic."
