Located in the historic heart of the Eternal City, Hotel Indigo Rome - St George has stylish, luxurious interiors and is within walking distance of some of Rome’s most recognisable landmarks. The hotel is set within a Renaissance-era palazzo on the historic Via Giulia, a beacon of Renaissance architecture designed by Donato Bramante. Behind the antique façade, Hotel Indigo has a playfully stylish décor that celebrates the best of Italian design and art, from the works of Caravaggio to the Fiat 500.
Guests can lounge within one of the hotel’s cosy common areas, or indulge themselves in Hotel Indigo’s boutique spa. During the summer months the rooftop terrace is a particularly enchanting spot for a sunset cocktail or a candlelit dinner from the hotel’s acclaimed restaurant with the Eternal City spread before you like a canvas.
Chef Filly Mossucca serves delectable meals using local, seasonal ingredients. Her food makes some nods towards international cuisine, however the real passion here is for typical Roman and Italian dishes, with the risotto particularly raved about: don’t miss the risotto with an infusion of tomato, powdered crusco peppers and seared red prawns.
The Wine Bar has a wide selection from some of Lazio’s most famous estates, as well as a good range of craft beers and a list of classic cocktails and aperitivi. During the summer months, The Roof Top Bar is open for drinks as well as romantic dinners, with far-reaching views across Rome.
Rooms range from standard to suites, each with their own style and character. Contemporary design is complemented by classical details, and rooms are themed around icons of Italian artwork, so expect elements from the works of Bramante and Caravaggio, as well as playful nods to the contemporary, such as the Fiat 500. It’s worth noting that due to the historic nature of the palazzo, some standard rooms can come up a little small so it’s worth opting for a pricier option if size is a concern.
After a day spent exploring the Roman streets, relax in the hotel’s spa, where you can pamper yourself in the hot-tub, sauna or steam room. Bespoke beauty treatments, massages and therapies can be organised, and there’s a mini-gym for those who want to continue their fitness regime.
The hotel is situated on the Via Giulia, and the street’s ornate Renaissance palazzi make for a fascinating diversion before you stroll to the busier spots close by, with both the Vatican and Castel Sant’Angelo within walking distance. For traditional Roman street scenes, head to one of the city’s many markets. Porta Portese, open only on Sundays, is particularly iconic, having been immortalised in film. The Via Sannio and Borghetto Flaminio markets are great for vintage clothing, while the stalls at Campo de’Fiore sell fresh produce bursting with flavour: pick up some healthy snacks to munch on while you explore the city.
