Traveling to Rome on a holiday? Find a lovely historic hotel for a night of history and culture.
As a tourist, sometimes the best thing about a vacation is the comfortable hotel. So while you are visiting Rome, Italy, why not try one of the many historic hotels?
Between visiting beautiful historic fountains, the Coliseum, the Vatican Museum and enjoying the night life in Trastevere, you'll need a cozy place to relax in the evening, but don't let the vacation stop the moment you arrive at your hotel. There are plenty of exquisite hotels that only add to the experience of a true Roman holiday.
Suggested Historic Hotels in Rome
Amidst the city streets of Rome are lovely historic hotels like D"Inghilterra. Founded in 1845, the hotel's guest list has included Hans Christian Anderson and Mark Twain. You understand why this is one of the most popular hotels when you first see the location, which sits close to the Spanish Steps. It's unique interior style makes heads turn. With a delectable restaurant, Caf Romano, this makes for a stunning all inclusive five star hotel.
Not far from the Vatican Museum is an historic district called "Prati". Within the floors of an ancient palace, is the Les Chambres D"Or. The quiet atmosphere and sophisticated style and grace are revealed at every turn. You get some of the best views of the Eternal City when you stay at the Les Chambres D"Or.
How to Pick the Right Historic Hotel in Rome
Rome has many culturally intoned historic hotels, and choosing the right one for your stay may be important.
First, figure out the tourist destinations you are interested in. Is there a certain museum you would like to see? Do you only have a short weekend to stay in Rome? Factors like these may be of some assistance if you want to get the most out of your vacation.
For example, if you are going to visit for a short while, you could pick out the museums and all the places you would like to see, and then pick a hotel that is center to everything you want to do. You would not want to pick a hotel that is on the other side of the city from the places you want to visit.
Benefits of a Historic Hotel
You could stay at one of the Hilton, Sheraton or Holiday Inn hotels. They are very luxurious and in convenient locations. However, why stay there, when there are thousands of those in cities around the world? You would get the same standard room from a standard hotel, but a trip to Rome shouldn't be standard.
A cultural vacation shouldn't end the moment you reach the hotel steps. The more historic hotels in the district offer fantastic views, traditional styles and more. You are swallowed up in Italian history at ever turn. With sleek marble baths and plush carpets and the opportunity to open you window up to an ancient structure or an exceptionally beautiful church, you simply can't miss a chance to reserve a hotel in one of the finest cities in the world.
