The lush rooftop-garden terrace with a center-stage view of St. Peter's Basilica is one reason to stay here; you'll also enjoy the proximity to the Vatican and superb shopping and dining. The hotel, which is situated in a distinguished 19th-century building, has an old-world atmosphere, with attractive guest rooms decorated with striped silk linens, flowered wallpaper, and prints. The hotel offers guests complimentary shuttle service from Rome's Fiumicino Airport. A sister
hotel, the Atlante Garden, just around the corner, has larger rooms at slightly lower rates.
