Hotel d'Inghilterra

Via Bocca di Leone 14, Rome, Latium, 00187, Italy

Situated in a 17th-century guesthouse and founded in 1845, Hotel D'Inghilterra has a long, storied history. It's long been used as an aristocratic residence for visitors in Rome, and has been the home away from home to various monarchs, movie stars, and some of the greatest writers of all time—Lord Byron, John Keats, Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, and Elizabeth Taylor among them. The hotel's name pays tribute to the Brits, who colonized the Spanish Steps district during the Grand Tour era. Some of the rooms are in need of a makeover as some of furnishings begin to show signs of wear and tear.
