With just 14 suites, the focus here is on service, and they certainly deliver, but remain discreet. If you want to be alone on the guest exclusive rooftop terrace, you can be. The terrace itself is a highlight, offering a panoramic view of the city. Whether you are taking breakfast in the morning or aperitivos in the evening, it is a view that will take your breath away, and remains one of the finest ways to see Rome that the city has to offer.

However, there is still humor and interest, with touches like the video fireplaces found in every suite adding that touch of fun that again brings the essence of Rome itself into your room. For the true Rome experience, there is little that can compare.
The rooms themselves are a diverse mix, with some having a contemporary art deco look that makes bold use of black and white, using red accents for interest, while others retain the traditional, classic designs from Hassler’s long history, using both 18th and 19th century furniture and décor in both wood and marble. If you are looking for the best views, go for a street facing room on the fourth floor or above, where the vistas of Rome will be laid out before you.
At the core of the service on offer is the wonderfully evocative concierge desk in the lobby, a 19th century reminder of more extravagant times, and with a hair salon, managed by one of Italy’s finest stylists, a small spa and gym.

The lobby feels almost like a museum, ornate and very much as you expect a stately home to be, it brings the opulence of old time Rome to your stay.

With wonderful gardens that are perfectly manicured, you can even take dinner out there in the summer, while afternoon tea is served in the Sala del Camino, for a touch of Roman elegance whatever the weather.
The rooms take the luxurious feeling to a new level, here you will find Fiandra linen sheets, cashmere throws, marble bathrooms and elegant touches throughout. Villa Spalletti Trivelli is all about the experience, giving you the chance to be one of Rome’s aristocrats, living in your own palazzo and enjoying the beauty and luxury of that life, at least for the duration of your stay.

A rooftop terrace and a wonderful restaurant are on offer too, with a modern menu that befits the overall atmosphere. It’s something unique, and a very different take on Rome.
