If Goethe was correct in saying that only in Rome is it possible to understand Rome, he’d likely agree that staying in the very heart of the sprawling city is the best possible way to experience it. The Baglioni Hotel Regina’s desirable location makes it an excellent launching pad from which to explore the soul of the Eternal City; set on the iconic Via Veneto, the best of what Rome has to offer is right outside.
Originally the home of Queen Margherita of Savoy, Baglioni Hotel Regina’s regal past is reflected in its stately facade. Within, the hotel exudes refined Italian elegance. The Sicilian marble lobby is eccentric in the most pleasing of ways – leopard print chairs mix with contemporary artwork, Murano chandeliers and diamond-patterned floors in an unexpected design scheme that works beautifully.
Art-deco inspired rooms and suites have patterned carpeting, intricate brocades and heavy drapes. Chandeliers hanging from high ceilings add to the feeling of refined splendour, as do the large and luxurious bathrooms. If you’re splurging, the hotel’s Roman Penthouse is well worth it. Upholstered closets and an enormous terrace decked out with a hot tub are a few of the perks; an in-suite chef, barman and private elevator are also among its laundry list of amenities.
For a buffet breakfast or a romantic Mediterranean meal, the street-level Brunello Bar and Restaurant is an easy (and delicious) option. It’s popular among locals and hotel guests alike, and the adjacent lounge serves killer cocktails.
The hotel’s spa is small but well-equipped, with sensory showers and a Finnish-style sauna alongside its two treatment rooms. The hotel has a fitness centre as well, though it is a bit smaller than one would expect from a hotel of this size. While the vibe of the hotel feels geared towards a couple’s vacation, it is family friendly and children under 16 stay for free.
Best of all is the hotel’s location – it’s a stone’s throw from numerous cafés and a ten-minute walk to must-see attractions like the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. Closer still are the Villa Borghese Gardens and the fashionable Via dei Condotti. The hotel coordinates a number of experiences like picnics, opera nights and Ferrari tours, but make sure to leave room in your itinerary to simply wander the city – there’s no telling what you might find.
