A recent refurbishment of the Hotel Eden has put it back in the running for one of Rome's top luxury lodgings: once a favorite haunt of Hemingway, Ingrid Bergman, and Fellini, this superlative hotel combines dashing elegance, exquisitely lush decor, and stunning vistas of Rome with true Italian hospitality. Set atop an oh-my-weary-feet hill near the Villa Borghese (and a bit out of the historic center for serious sightseers), this hotel was opened in the late 19th century
and quickly became famous for its balcony views and Roman splendor. Even the most basic room here is elegantly designed: banquette window seats, rich mahogany furniture, soaring ceilings, Napoleon-Trois sofas, and fine linens allow you to dive deep into the whoooooossh of luxury here. Topping it all off is one of Rome's most fabled "food-with-a-view" restaurants, La Terrazza dell'Eden, whose perch offers views that are truly panaromantic (you can enjoy almost the same vistas for the price of a Campari on its rooftop bar: remember to dress up all the same).
