The guest rooms in this converted 19th-century mansion tend to be small, with an overabundance of chintz drapes, but the position right next to the ruins of the Emperor Hadrian's palatial residence is ample compensation. This is also a handy spot to have lunch before or after your trip around the ruins. The à la carte restaurant serves delicacies such as risotto ai fiori di zucchine (with zucchini flowers) or you can try the set menu Antica Roma, with dishes based
on the recipes of ancient Roman chef Apicius. Brunch is also recommended. There's a garden for outdoor dining in summer and also a tennis court.
