Nestled just metres from the famous Spanish Steps, the location of Il Palazzetto speaks for itself. The former retreat of a noble Roman family, the 19th-century building is now a boutique hotel of only four rooms. Nothing can quite beat the feeling of watching the Spanish Steps glow in the sunset from the privacy of the hotel’s panoramic terrace just metres away, especially when this is paired with a glass of wine from the hotel’s bijou wine bar.
With many of Rome’s best landmarks, as well as the exclusive shopping district of Via Dei Condotti, within easy walking distance, Il Palazzetto is ideal for a romantic Roman retreat.
Breakfast is served at the nearby Hassler Roma, Il Palazzetto’s sister hotel. Hassler Roma is also home to the Michelin-starred Imágo, which serves exquisitely executed dishes in front of a stunning view of Rome’s cupolas, towers and rooftops.
The four guest rooms have an understatedly elegant décor, with a palette of simple creams and luxurious touches of velvet and satin. Three of the rooms overlook the Spanish Steps, while the fourth gives views over Vicolo del Bottino.
Guests at Il Palazzetto have access to all of the facilities of sister hotel Hassler Roma, including a fully-equipped spa and wellness centre. Il Palazzetto itself has two beautiful terraces to watch the world go by from, as well as a number of cosy common areas.
Located in the heart of historic Rome, Il Palazzetto is perfect for exploring the Eternal City, with must-see landmarks such as the Trevi Fountain within easy walking distance. Shoppers will delight at the extensive luxury boutiques and designer fashion houses on Via Dei Condotti and the surrounding streets, while those looking to escape the bustle of the city will find the gardens at Villa Borghese a tranquil respite.
