J.K. Place Roma

Rome, Italy

Tucked away down small alleyway in the Borghese area, just five minutes from the Spanish Steps, J.K. Place Roma is a townhouse with enduring appeal that once housed the School of Architecture. Giving the city’s finest abodes a run their money in the style stakes, interiors are a tour de force of warm retro-modernism. An address for those in the know, the chic spot evokes more than a little club-house vibe. A bright-white and dove grey lobby – all marble sculptures, towering parlour palms and design tomes – eases into masculine elegance. Original fireplaces, homely pieces, bronze lighting, polished walnut and Mad Men-esque furniture. Indeed, an Italian Don Draper would look well at home here. In the contemporary bedrooms, it is four-poster beds, Massimo Listri photography and top-quality materials all the way. Monogrammed pillowcases are a particularly lovely touch. The relaxed on-site restaurant showcases market-fresh ingredients, with excellent breakfasts, while the moody bar shakes up a mean line of cocktails come aperitivo hour. The laid-back efficiency of the service just adds to a sense of this being a home away from home.
