Fodor's Review

A longtime favorite, this converted 18th-century convent has a truly unique setting on one side of the Fori Imperiali, with cinematic views of ancient Rome across the avenue so impressive that it's drawn celebrities and socialites, like Jackie Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor, and Brigitte Bardot. The hotel lobby is comfortable though considerably less exciting: decor is traditional in the extreme, with the requisite gold wall sconces, walnut paneling, red-velvet armchairs, and Asian carpets in the lobby. Upstairs, guest rooms are similarly low-key though pleasant; suites offer velvety fabrics and some antiques. Bathrooms have been restyled using marble and antique tiles. The panoramic view from the rooftop restaurant will make you feel like you're standing on the set of a movie about ancient Rome.
