One of the few privately owned luxury hotels in Rome, the Hassler has an excellent pedigree: it’s run by a fifth-generation hotelier and its guest list includes Beckhams, Cruises, and Paltrows. The hotel has remained one of the city’s leading hotels for over a century, and its long history is apparent in the quirky mix of styles—a little Art Deco, a little contemporary, a little Belle Époque elegance. Guest rooms veer from classic wood and marble furniture to modern recessed lighting and fixtures in primary colors. The Hassler Bar, a small annex of red leather and gilded mirrors, retains its early 20th-century charm, though, and makes the perfect hideaway for a pre-dinner Campari before heading to the sixth floor Imàgo restaurant. The panoramic city views here take a backseat to the Michelin-starred food, which brings international influences to regional cuisine, like rigatoni slathered in shiso pesto, and a risotto with cacio cheese, pepper and sesame—book in advance to score a table with the best view. The concierge service is also second to none, so take advantage of it and ask for insider tips on where to shop and dine in the area.
In the Area
If this is your first time in Rome, the Hassler is well-placed for walking to the city’s landmark sights. The Colosseum and Trevi Fountain are less than 25 minutes’ walk from the hotel and the Piazza di Spagna, one of Rome’s most beautiful squares (packed with designer shops like Prada and Balenciaga), is just at the bottom of the Spanish Steps. The Vatican is a 1.5-mile stroll across the river, while the landscaped gardens of the Villa Borghese are just a few minutes away. Allow time here to visit a couple of the museums as well, particularly the Galleria Borghese with its impressive collection of classical antiquities. If you want to wander further afield, the Spagna metro stop is just down the street.
How to Get There
It was a great experience staying at The Hassler Rome! Its a timeless and classy hotel located over the Spanish steps. It has a great terrace overlooking all the city of Rome. The staff was great and the food was delicious. Simply loved it ♥️♥️♥️
3 days in Hotel Hassler and I am spoilt for life! Everything was perfect. Nice breakfast. The dinner in the Imago Restaurant at the top of the hotel was unforgettable. Friendly staff and wonderful interior. The view from our window was amazing and so was the room. Excellent service. Only one thing: does the hotel really not have a map of Rome for their guests and plans for busses and trams?
We visited the Hassler Hotel in Piazza della Trinita dei Monti, for the first time a couple of weeks ago. The hotel is located in the best location, just meters from the Spanish Steps and with the best view in Rome. From the reception you see that it is a very luxurious hotel, the employees all speak perfect english, the maintenance of the common areas is wonderful. The rooms are spacious and very nice. If you get lucky and get a city view you can see all the city at your feet. But don't worry, they have a terrace in the 7th floor where you can go for a drink and enjoy it all as well as 1 Star Michelin restaurant Imago that you shouldn't miss. The concierges are just on top of everything to suggest the best places to go visit, eat and relax. Service in the room is great and you can eat at any of two wonderful restaurants. If you love to have a great relaxed buffet breakfast italian style, don't miss the hotel. You have to climb down the Spanish Steps and you are in the middle of Via dei Condotti and its shops. But if you don't want to walk, the hotel has an electric car that takes you there any time during the day! The spa is very good and I would highly recommend staying here.
Approximately 10 years ago we stayed at the Hassler and loved it so when we planned another trip to Italy, we wanted to return to the hotel. We were not disappointed. The Hotel Hassler is a member of Leading Hotels of the World (LHW). As we pay an annual fee to be a member of LHW we are offered a room upgrade at any of their hotels if available. When we checked in we were told we had the upgrade and were shown to a beautifully decorated and updated room. We even had a walk in closet and a beautifully appointed bathroom. The hotel itself is beautiful and the staff was very attentive. We would love to go back again!
Hotel Hassler is not a run-of-the-mill hotel - it exudes charm, warmth, elegance and luxury from the moment you step into the lobby. The food and service is impeccable. The location is perfect for walking most anywhere in Rome. It is a quiet oasis from the hustle of the city. There is a balcony where my husband enjoyed his cigar while we sipped a cocktail. Their exquisite restaurant that sits atop of the hotel provides an overview of the city lights as-well-as memories which will last a life-time. The food is a gourmet's delight. The old bar is a gem. The breakfasts there were not only delicious but the service was perfect. I dream of returning there someday soon!
