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.

Fantastic location. Great service. Beautiful hotel. Wonderful breakfast. Loved the restaurant. Can't say enough about this place. You can walk to almost everything. And, if you have a Costco membership, you can even get a discount!

Location, Location, Location!!

You couldn’t ask for a better location. After settling in, we walked to the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, and back to the hotel and I was still under 10000 steps for the day on my fitbit, and that included walking in the airport that morning. It’s literally less than 1 block from stores representing some of Italy’s most well-known fashion brands. It’s an older hotel so none of the rooms are identical. My biggest concern is that with Rome’s August heat, that the air conditioning might not be good enough in the older hotel. It was renovated 2 years ago and my concern was totally unwarranted. Breakfast was included with our room it was adequate. We had dinner in the hotel's restaurant on the last of our 3 nights in Rome. The food was quite good, better than the other 2 nights. I'm generally not a fan of tiramisu, but it was delicious here. It was a little more expensive than the other restaurants but not outrageously so. I only have three minor negatives. One - there was no make-up mirror in the bathroom. Two - being an older hotel, there wasn't a convenient place to charge our electronics by the bed. Three (easily fixable with a phone call) - there weren't extra bath towels in the room. Would I recommend t Hotel d'Inghliterra to friends, relatives and colleagues? You betcha!
