Swish 19th-century design boutique in central Rome
A 19th-century building blocks from the Pantheon was the muse for South African interior designer Tristan Du Plessis, who honored its history (original brick archways went untouched) without bending to it. Rooms are a spirited mix of industrial-chic meets Art Deco, with vibrant pops of color—pastel velvet armchairs, brass pendant lights, graffiti art—that bring new energy to the building’s old bones. It’s a microcosm of the old-meets-new that perfectly suits present-day Rome, where both young creatives and sophisticated jet-setters can—and do—coexist in the multi-use lobby bar and on-site market. Bummed there’s no full-service restaurant? You happen to be in the historic Regola district, currently home to some of Rome’s hottest tables.
In the Area
The Vatican is a half-hour walk from this section of Regola, a residential neighborhood mere steps from Rome’s centro storico. Strolling around some of Rome’s most iconic squares, including the Piazza Navona, the Piazza Venezia, and Campo de’ Fiori (particularly the morning market) is mandatory in good weather, when all of Rome comes out to play. For a roasted-on-site espresso in a classic Roman atmosphere, head to the nearby Caffè Sant’Eustachio, which has retained its considerable charm since the 1930s. At night, try dinner at one of Regola’s three Michelin-starred restaurants—Pipero, Per Me Giulio Terrinoni, and Il Pagliaccio.
