The Hassler Review

When it comes to million-dollar views, this exclusive hotel atop the Spanish steps has the best seats in the house, so it’s no surprise that generations of fans, many rich and famous (Tom Cruise, Jennifer Lopez, Gwenyth Paltrow, and the Beckhams included), are willing to pay top dollar to stay here. While the exterior is relatively bland, the hotel—first opened in the late-1800s and run by a fifth-generation hotelier—hits you with elegance, history, and refined service as soon as you enter. Guest rooms are among Rome’s most lavishly (and sometimes whimsically) decorated. One penthouse claims the largest terrace in town (and a €5,000-a-night price tag), while the other goes one better with two terraces (€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, if not for its food, while the Palm Court, which becomes the hotel bar in summer, overflows with flowers; the iconic "hidden" Hassler Bar, tucked off the lobby, is just made for illicit meetings. There's also a small spa and salon on-site.

    Great place - especially if you smoke

    Great room, good service. But the otherwise excellent bar seems to have a special exemption from the Italian non-smoking law. The smoke wafts into the restaurant yet the bar manager says it is beyond his power to stop. I complained in writing to the manager but received no reply. A very poor show.
