Tucked away on a quiet street steps from the Spanish Steps, this midsize hotel is convenient to great caffès, serious shopping, and all the sights. Fine views of the whole area are on display from the two rooftop terraces; guest rooms are furnished in true Roman style with wooden fixtures, beautiful antiques, and rich colored fabrices. The hotel also has an apartment you can rent if you're looking for something a bit roomier. Rome's most comprehensive English-language
bookshop, the Anglo-American, is directly across the street.
