Best for… Spa: Gran Meliá Villa Agrippina

Gran Meli Villa Agrippina

Urban escape is what really sets apart the Gran Meliá from the rest of Rome’s hotels. Built into the Janiculum hillside, on the grounds of a villa belonging to Emperor Nero’s mother, Villa Agrippina was a city oasis from its start. The sprawling compound has 116 rooms and deluxe suites styled in a pleasant complement of contemporary and Baroque design, but you’ll find the real pampering in the SPA My Blend by Clarins. The white-on-white light-filled spa has all the treatments and facilities you could hope for, including sauna, Turkish bath and fitness area, as well as sensorial showers and an outdoor Vitality pool, heated to at 32 degrees for a dip in any month. Chances are, though, you’ll find yourself relaxing poolside in the lavish two-acre grounds.

Best for… Romance: Hotel San Pancrazio

Best for… Food: DOM

DOM

Eating well in Rome can often be all about location. Everyone wants to walk, but no one wants to go too far. DOM hotel takes that to heart. Chef Max Mariola helms the onsite restaurant, a black lacquered niche that feels more Paris than Rome. His brunch has no rivals, while dinner is the happy fusion of traditional Roman and nouvelle cuisine. But DOM’s location is too good to keep you inside for the duration. Down the street, around the charming Via Giulia, are some of the city’s best eating spots, including Pierluigi, Il Sanlorenzo, Supplizio, and Roscioli. But you’ll be back to the hotel for evening drinks at the Deer Club, a tiny and stylish cocktail bar or the rooftop. Personality is key at DOM. The 24-room hotel was once a monastery, and its design plays on its austere, Baroque history with a little naughtiness – 500-year-old inscription rest side by side with Warhols, while rooms are warmly decorated in burnt tones, burnished velvet and large mirrors.

Best for… Family: Rome Cavalieri

Roma Cavalieri

Known for its 50-year history as the getaway for celebrities thanks to its out-of-centre hillside location, the Cavalieri is also the perfect escape for families. The 365-room hotel greets smaller guests with personal check-in and amenities, while offering a year-round kid-curated line up of services, itineraries, events and babysitting. The real fun is exploring the hotel grounds – gardens, a 25,000 sq metre in and outdoor spa complex with three pools (one of which has an inflatable slide), and tennis courts. During the summer months, the IT Club – League of Young Cavaliers – hosts daily, on-site cultural and sporting activities, and revs kids up via a Vespa Video experience, Ferrari F1 simulator racetrack and Nutella Chocolate Bar. The hotel restaurants have children’s menus, but the best is the pool bar which has milkshakes, hamburgers, homemade ice cream and pizzas. However, grown-up children may find more fun at La Pergola, Rome’s only three Michelin star restaurant – book in advance.
