A characterful stay in Rome's cultural hub, including a discount in the Michelin-starred restaurant
Rome boasts an astonishing artistic heritage, and it's positively brimming with UNSECO World Heritage Site, shops, restaurants and bars galore. Nestled in the culture-rich Monti district, which is packed with quirky shops and cutting-edge boutiques, the intimate Hotel Rex offers a four-star stay with personality. Housed in a period villa, it features a stylish grey lobby, with a white, marble floor and an oversized wall-mounted alarm clock. Elsewhere, gaze up an elegant, balustraded spiral staircase to a glinting glass skylight high above.
For a city hotel, it's surprisingly full of cozy corners where you can kick back and relax. After a day of sightseeing, catch up on some reading in the inviting lounge library, or pop up to the tranquil Solerex roof terrace, and soak up some rays on a lounger while listening to the soft music. There’s even a small fitness room with Wii Sports and punching bags, where you can let off some steam. Pleasant evenings can be spent quaffing fine, vintage wine in the bar.
The absolute highlight of the hotel, though, has to be its popular restaurant, Pipero al Rex. This Michelin-starred dining destination serves exquisitely presented creative cuisine under the expert guidance of head chef Luciano Monosilio. After your gourmet feasts, your spacious room is a relaxing and welcoming space where you can recharge your batteries and wake up ready to do it all again.
Spacious Superior rooms are painted soothing dove grey, taupe or ocher, with polished wooden headboards. En-suite bathrooms come with walk-in shower and marble sink.
The refined Pipero al Rex restaurant boasts one Michelin star – and with good reason. Its spaghetti carbonara is legendary, and other standout dishes are duck breast tartare and squab with figs and polenta. Just make sure you reserve a table well in advance.
Hote Rex sits steps from Rome’s main Terminus train station, which has direct links to the airport. This is the city's culture hub, so you can visit the Opera House, National Museum and National Art Gallery, all of which are close by. People-watch in the Plaza de Repubblica, also nearby. The Colosseum, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps are about a 20-minute walk from the hotel.
