trevi-fountain-rome-italy_x700Rome attracts millions of visitors from all over the world each year, tourists flood into the city keen to get under the skin of its history,culture and strong sense of religion and spirituality that runs through the blood of the Roman people. The famous Italian passion flows throughout Rome, evident in everything from the intricately sculpted architecture, the outgoing, welcoming nature of the residents, and the perfectionist food and coffee sold at many of the side-street cafes. Of course, as a visitor to any city, one of the things that speaks volumes about the character of the place is the place you stay.

Whether you're in a hotel, apartment or villa, your accommodation is often the first impression you get of a new destination, and in my experience, Rome doesn't disappoint. This magical, mystical city hosts some of Europe's best hotels that can be simultaneously luxurious, quirky and unique. Here are five of the best Rome hotels:

*1. **Grand Hotel de la Minerve*

Se in the heart of the city the Minerve is the height of luxury, a regal white structure that is as grand on the inside as it is on the outside. Offering 135 rooms, the Minerve is spacious while still retaining and air of intimacy, room specifications are in place to suit all budgets and it evenĀ boasts a fitness area. The Roof garden dining area is the real centrepiece however, a true taste of Roman hospitality awaits here as you graze on traditionally Italian favourites while watching the sunset over the city skyline.

*2. **Babuino 181 *

Like the Minerve, the Babuino is right in the heart of the action, just minutes from Rome's famous Spanish steps. Although the hotel has fresh ,modern underpinnings it is laced with traditional Italian influences like Frette sheets, silk sheets and marble bathrooms to ensure guests have an authentic experience in the lap of luxury.

*3. **Hotel Hassler*

The Hassler is the embodiment of Rome and everything that a hotel in this city should be. Arguably one of the most lavish hotels in Italy and indeed Europe as a whole, this relatively small set up ensures guests are treated like kings. The walls are adorned with original paintings, 18th century furniture is a standard and the bathrooms even feature gold plated sinks. The Spa on the 3rd floor and panoramic restaurant on the 6th only make it more special.

*4. **La Posta Vecciha *

If you're looking to escape the lively hustle and bustle of Rome city centre then La Posta Vecciha is the perfect choice, being within striking distance of Rome but far enough away to enjoy intimacy and privacy. This hotel overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea meaning its a perfect place to catchsome sun, or simply relax at the indoor pool.

*5. **Rome Cavalieri*

The Cavalieri is a hotel for foodies and those that like to pamper themselves. For starters, the 3 starred La Pergola restaurant is widely recognized as the best in Rome, a lofty accolade indeed. The cutting edge fitness suite here is the perfect place to burn off all those delicious calories before indulging the luxury spa featuring Turkish baths, saunas and hydro massage baths.

Yes, I know how you feel. Rome has that quality about itself that makes it feel like you have been there. That could be one of the reasons why they call it the Eternal City.

Today just travel is not important but accommodation is also important. I had never visited Rome but after reading your post I feel that I have been there.
