Once home to Queen Margherita of Savoy, Baglioni Hotel Regina cuts a stately figure on the Via Veneto, the backdrop to Fellini’s 1960 classic La Dolce Vita. Soaring floor-to-ceiling marble gleams in the lobby, and gilded mirrors reflect the light from the hand-blown Murano chandeliers. Elsewhere, typically Italian flourishes throw down a playful gauntlet to architectural simplicity, with bold splashes of color, patterned wallpaper and a variety of textured fabrics.
Bed and Bath
While they might be individually styled, the 118 guest rooms and suites lean heavily toward rich furnishings. Pieces of Art Deco furniture, from side tables to lampshades, are offset by vibrantly brocaded bedspreads and silk wallpaper. Some of the Deluxe Rooms are blessed with a balcony overlooking the Via Veneto, others just a view. And the bathrooms are more clean cut than inspiring, offering a shower and tub combination and wall-to-wall marble.
Step across the threshold from the lobby to the Brunello Lounge and the vibe turns from classic to eclectic in seconds. Leopard-print stools and lanterns that cast a shower of light impart a nightclub ambience. The restaurant is decked out in muted tones, and the dishes are a modern interpretation of classic Mediterranean fare — think salmon tartare marinated in vodka and spices accompanied by a Sicilian orange salad. The food is full on, and the service is watchful and discreet. The spa features a Jacuzzi, a steam bath, a sauna and a fitness center, and the treatment packages are quirkily categorized by color.
How to Get There
We are a family of 7, ages 13-80 and all needs were exceeded. Front desk, concierge (day and night), lounge servers, housekeeping, room service...all were used by us. The staff had wheelchair ready when we arrived, arranged private transportation, knew us by name, provided fantastic breakfast, generously served us in the lounge area nightly always with smiles and friendliness! We had an electric scooter and could bring into the room. We had only positive comments!!
Beautiful accommodations with included breakfast (which was to die for) in an ideal location within walking distance to endless monuments. Be sure to order the cappuccino at breakfast and cherish every last sip - it is the best I had in Italy still to this day.
I liked being at a hotel where most of the sites are equidistant. Plus the rooms were of great quality and the breakfast was superb. The front desk was also helpful with suggesting activities and the bar was good.
