Hipmunk City Love: The Best Historic Hotels in Rome

A cosmopolitan city with almost 3,000 years of art, culture, and history on display, Rome is one of the most celebrated capitals in the world. From the ancient ruins of the Roman Forum and Colosseum to religious icons such as those in Vatican City displaying internationally acclaimed artwork, to travel to Rome is to step into the pages of history itself.

Even the hotels date back centuries here, and a historic experience should begin with your accommodation. If you’re looking to discover ancient Rome, start by booking a stay at one of these historic hotels.

Hotel Majestic

Rome by Giuseppe Milo

Close to Italian Gardens and main historical monuments in Rome, Hotel Majestic offers glamour and Italian culture in a historic setting, with an outdoor patio overlooking the best of the city’s historic district.

In a fabulous place next to Trevi Fountain, room rates at Hotel Majestic are affordable, though you are still treated like a star. Bellhops will jump to carry bags, newspapers are delivered to your room, and a bilingual staff makes it easy for guests who don’t speak Italian. Wi-Fi is complimentary, and all rooms have lavish décor.

Hotel Eden

Hotel Eden is in the very heart of Rome, a 5-star hotel close to both the Roman Forum and Colosseum, as well as many other cultural and historic hotspots in the Old City of Rome.

With 121 classically Roman rooms, the hotel dates to 1889, though amenities today remain luxurious and modern and include Italian marble bathrooms, rooftop restaurant and bar, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, and expansive windows offering a spellbinding panorama of Rome.

Hotel Nazionale

With spacious rooms (a huge bonus for Rome), a stay at Hotel Nazionale places you in the heart of central Rome, steps away from historic treasures like Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, and Spanish Steps.

A 4-star historic hotel with 100 rooms, the property dates to the 18th century. Although the building is centuries old, guests enjoy modern amenities such as minibars, LCD televisions, and Italian Frette bedding. Wi-Fi is available at an extra charge.

A 4- star hotel close to St. Peter’s Basilica and Roman Forum, the building has been perfectly restored to suit its period. It includes panoramic rooftop terrace views, and a fully resorted 16th century monastery.

Affordable luxury, rooms include air conditioning, high-speed Wi-Fi, and babysitting/childcare for families looking for a break from the kids. A major perk of the hotel is free parking on site.

Hotel Quirinale

Regal accommodation conveniently close to Termini Station, Hotel Quirinale is a 4-star hotel in a majestic 19th century building near public transport for reaching the main attractions of Rome and its surrounds.
