Lord Byron. Rome's first boutique hotel, this Art Deco retreat has a jewel-like charm inside and feels like a small country manor where you are the lord. In the '90s, this was a favorite among money movers and shakers, top businesspeople, and yacht brokers—today it attracts an older, well-off international crowd thanks to its luxurious amenities and peaceful, serene location near the Villa Borghese Gardens. The downstairs bar—a magnificent piece of cabinetry—is
a conversation piece. Upstairs, modern and antique styles combine to create highly polished opulence in the guest rooms.

Beautiful building; nice but smallish room; fabulous restaurant; great staff and wonderful service - that's the good news. The bad news is the location - Parioli is stylish and pretty but somewhat inconvenient. You have to take a taxi to get anywhere you want to be.
