Hotel Eden , Rome, Italy
With its vistas over the seven hills of Rome, taking in St Peter’s and a roofscape like no other, you’ll be hard-pushed to know whether the views are better looking in or looking out at Hotel Eden.
Classic rather than contemporary, the Eden is a sophisticated 19th-century Roman hotel with the Eternal City’s Via Veneto and Spanish Steps just a hop, skip and a jump away.
Inside the loveliness is just as ravishing, with understatedly-elegant rooms in pale palettes with splashes of vibrant colours and a celebrated rooftop restaurant where you can clink your cutlery amidst the great and the good of the international A-list.
It may be steeped in history but Eden certainly doesn't look its age, so if you find romance in history and architecture, and enjoy the last word in effortless service, stunning cuisine and oodles of charm, you'll be in your element as soon as the top-hatted doorman ushers you into this timeless world of old-school elegance.
