A picture-perfect luxury boutique hotel in the heart of the stately Parioli neighbourhood, Hotel Lord Byron offers the best in Italian hospitality and style. The villa dates back to 1939, and the décor is a celebration of the Art Deco style of the 1920s and 30s. Period paintings and objects d’art mingle with more contemporary pieces by artists such as Nicholas Granger-Taylor, making it a real visual treat for art-lovers.
The hotel has a stylish lounge area, perfect for a pre-dinner aperitivo, while the acclaimed restaurant is as popular with Roman high-society as the hotel’s many devoted return guests. Slightly removed from the bustle of the city centre, Hotel Lord Byron’s location in leafy Parioli makes it ideal for those looking for a stylish, peaceful hideaway in the Eternal City.
A buffet breakfast is served daily, including homemade croissants, bread, jams, and cereals, washed down with freshly-squeezed seasonal fruit juices such as Sicilian orange, grapefruit or tangerine. Needless to say, the coffee is exquisite and freshly ground.
The hotel’s restaurant, Sapori del Byron, has a seasonal menu focusing on the rich and varied produce of the Mediterranean, and is highly popular with the upper crust of Roman society. Meals best enjoyed with a bottle from the restaurant’s extensive wine cellar, which has been internationally recognised for its exceptional quality and selection.
Bedrooms are all individually decorated. Stylish interiors speak of Art Deco decadence, seen in the rich Mahogany and rosewood furniture and imposing mirrors; others have playful touches evocative of the Dolce Vita of the 1950s. Bathrooms are elegant, resplendent in marble tiling, with many featuring vintage baths.
The hotel is nestled amongst the grand villas and mansions of the Parioli neighbourhood, and it’s worth taking a stroll through neighbouring streets to soak in the grand history of the area. At the Hotel Byron you’re just minutes from the spectacular Borghese Gardens, an expanse of landscaped parklands that is the city’s green heart. There’s nothing better than to simply meander along picturesque pathways, exploring the hidden gardens, Roman remains and Neoclassical follies. If you’re an art-lover, don’t miss the gallery at the Villa Borghese, home to fine artworks and dazzling Bernini statues. Nature lovers might enjoy the Bioparco, one of Europe’s oldest zoological gardens.
Although slightly more removed from the historic centre, the most recognisable landmarks of the city are never further than a short taxi-ride from the hotel.
