Hotel Locarno

Rome, Italy

Moments from the Piazza del Popolo, the Spanish Steps and the Tiber, this elegant art nouveau property is a museum masterpiece; a perfectly preserved historic hotel offering unpretentious living in the Eternal City. Previously frequented by bohemian Italians including Enzo Cucchi and Federico Fellini, the sultry, seductive space has maintained the sceney feel that made it famous in the 60s thanks to the oversight of owner Caterina Valente, whose inherited the 1920s property from family. There’s a distinctive Room with a View vibe at the movie-set worthy property. Interiors are elegantly pared back and artfully patina-patched. Bohemian guests drift from their romantic private quarters to the Liberty lamp-lit, fire-warmed drinking den. Others make the walk up to the star-frequented rooftop bar. Unique to the property is a “dine anywhere” ethos – from dawn ‘til dusk, guests can reserve a table wherever they like in the building, and order from chef Domenico Smargiassi’s seasonal menu, which is also served on the panoramic Terrazza Locarno upstairs. Don’t miss the ultimate Locarno experience: enjoying a well-crafted aperitivo made by world-class bartenders in the golden light of a Roman evening, sequestered away within the hotel’s hidden secret garden.
