Rooms & Suites: 100
Set atop the Spanish Steps and featuring a panoramic view of the entire city, Hotel Hassler Roma has been Rome's five-star lodging of choice for the world's elite for more than a century.
Each of the 82 rooms and 13 suites is individually designed and adorned in authentic Italian accents. Highlights include the panoramic restaurant, Imago, and the neighboring, Hassler-owned Il Palazzetto, a charming 16-century palazzo that offers a restaurant and wine bar with panoramic terraces, four rooms, and the International Wine Academy of Roma which offers wine-tasting classes with world-renowned sommeliers. The newly renovated Penthouse has the largest terrace in Rome, with breathtaking views over the city. In addition to the two-bedroom San Pietro Suite, the Villa Medici Suite on the seventh floor has a private staircase leading to the eighth floor. The three-bedroom Hassler Suite was once the studio of Dwight Eisenhower. The Hassler's panoramic restaurant Imàgo is an unforgettable experience, serving a traditional cuisine that somehow manages to compete with a bird's eye view of the Eternal city. The Hassler's Amorvero Spa overlooks the Spanish Steps. The hotel is within walking distance of the Villa Borghese park, Via Veneto, Via Condotti, and the world's most fashionable boutiques.
