When it comes to million-dollar views, the best address in the house goes to the Hassler. It’s no surprise that generations of fans, many rich and famous (Tom Cruise, Jennifer Lopez, Gwenyth Paltrow, and the Beckhams among them) are willing to pay top dollar to stay at this exclusive hotel atop the Spanish Steps. First opened in the late 1800s and run by a fifth-generation hotelier—making it one of Rome's very few luxury properties to remain in private hands—the Hassler hits you with old-world elegance, and refined service the moment you enter. Guest rooms are among Rome’s most lavishly (and sometimes whimsically) decorated. One penthouse claims the largest terrace in town (and a €7,000-per-night pricetag), while the other goes it one better with two terraces, not to mention butler service (€15,000 per night). More standard rooms at the back will spare you and your wallet the VIP prices. The Michelin-starred rooftop restaurant, Imàgo, is world famous for its view (and gets top marks for a menu that creatively blends Italian and Asian influences). There's also a small spa, gymnasium, and salon on site.
