Our editors have been here and it has met our standards

What We Love

  • Daily breakfast and a welcome cocktail are included in the Jetsetter rate
  • Location, location, location; it’s two blocks from the Spanish Steps
  • This is fashion central; the hotel is bordered by Via Condotti, which is lined with big name designers and Via Borgognona, where you’ll find Eddy Monetti, Brunello Cucinelli and lesser-known local designers
  • The lipstick-red-lacquered library
  • Tall, throw-open windows and narrow balconies offer city views
  • The intimate wood-paneled bar, reminiscent of an English gentleman’s club

What To Know

  • A city tax of approximately $3.50 per person, per night, will be collected at the Jetsetter checkout
  • The hotel’s cozy size means it’s not for everyone, especially large groups, which can easily overwhelm the three pretty but diminutive public rooms
  • Many but not all rooms and suites have been refurbished
  • High-speed cable Internet access is an extra $22 per day but there's a computer for guest use in the front hall

Overview

The Review

Tucked between Via Condotti and Via Borgognona on a beguiling little square (complete with gushing fountain), Hotel d’Inghilterra gives the impression that at any moment Audrey Hepburn might saunter out and jump on Gregory Peck’s whirring Vespa. (Mr. Peck, in fact, stayed here, as did Mark Twain, Ernest Hemmingway and Elizabeth Taylor).

Hung with trailing vines and adorned with wrought iron touches, the ancient hostelry has been catering to illustrious guests for centuries. Until 1845, when it officially became the Hotel d’Angleterre (so named for the English poets and artists who flocked to the city on their Grand Tours of Europe), it served as a guesthouse for international aristocrats who came to pay a visit to the princes of Torlonia.

{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/3020/prop-41842-1343231093-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”Rooms (including this Classic Double) are furnished with baroque mirrors and antique chests.”}Today the hotel continues to attract a well-heeled set, who can be found taking their morning espresso in the gleaming lipstick-red library or noshing on thin-crust pizzas and dewy salads at Café Romano — and who don’t seem to mind the squeeze in the noisy little bar, where libations are always accompanied by a long, skinny tray piled with chips, olives and warm almonds.

The hotel is at its best in the common areas, with black-and-white jacquard sofas, Neapolitan gouaches and punchy red lampshades and pillows. The rooms and suites, furnished with Baroque mirrors and antique chests, also exude grandeur. But while some have been updated with flat-screen televisions and marble bathrooms, others feel a little tired. (Mine had buckled plaster around an old leak in the ceiling, and a slanted towel rack that appeared ready to fall). The suites are more spacious — and more consistently modernized.

Still, the Hotel d’Inghilterra isn’t about iPod docking stations and Bose speakers. This is a place that breathes history, where Keats called on Byron, where Franz Liszt, Hans Christian Andersen and Henry James rested their heads. And if that isn’t enough, the hotel’s location puts you just a couple of blocks from the Spanish Steps and around the corner from one of Rome’s most fashionable streets.

Gem of a hotel close to the Spanish Steps
Reviewed 3 days ago

This is a hotel with a perfect location-close to the Spanish Steps and surrounded by wonderful shopping but it’s location on Via Bocca di Leone is quieter than being right on the Via Condotti. Everything about this hotel is beautiful! The rooms are well appointed plush surroundings and spacious with a very comfortable bed. There are wonderful public spaces to relax, wait for a friend or read a book. The restaurant has a nice menu and is a little pricey but we enjoyed all of the meals we had, be it breakfast, lunch or dinner.
The front desk staff was very pleasant, attentive and helpful! I wish I had found this hotel before; I’ll never stay anywhere else when I’m in Rome

Fabulous Classic Hotel in fabulous Location in Rome

Our family of 11 stayed at Hotel d'Inghilterra Roma in May 2019. First, the staff was incredibly helpful with our extended family of 11 - including three grandchildren under 5) and all our travel needs. They helped get us in rooms quickly upon arrival, and provided wonderful coloring books and pencils which kept them very busy through out our trip.

Secondly, the hotel itself is perfectly located near the Spanish Steps and walking distance to the Trevi Fountain. The hotel restant and bar was also very accommodating - and quite excellent!

I remarked to our children (in ther 40's) that I hope that classic continental style hotels such as the d'Inghilterra Roma continue to exit and thrive.

Had a lovely time at the hotel D’Inghilterra in Rome.
We were in town visiting our son who is making a film and wanted to be nearby.
The position was perfect and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Hotel staff were all very helpful apart for one and position was perfect we would stay there again.

A little disappointing
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This hotel has been established in a grand old building, and the furnishings reflect that and are opulent and impressive, but unfortunately there are some limitations of being in an old building that become evident during a stay. The rooms are quite small, even by European standards, the hot water and water pressure is a little bit and miss, and the electric switches left us a little nervous a couple of times.
The location is great if you are in Rome for shopping, and it’s very close to the Spanish steps, however it isn’t in a great area for restaurants, and the streets below can be very noisy both at night and early in the morning.
Overall we were a little disappointed throughout our stay, and will be trying to find something nicer for our next visit.

Excellent hotel
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Perfect location, excellent staff and large, comfortable rooms (decoration could be more modern and maybe simpler). Very comfortable beds. Breakfast is good but could be better. Restaurant is not lively despite live music!..:)
Bar is ok. Will be happy to come back!..
