When in Rome, stay in the Ho­tel Eden. Most Ro­mans would do the same given a chance. Re­cently ren­o­vated, not just re­fur­bished, where once there were 121 suites, there are now 98. Not only would you have views of the heart of Rome, but you can also ap­pre­ci­ate it from a lux­u­ri­ous space. The Bellav­ista Pent­house Suite, for in­stance, is true to its name; from the floor to ceil­ing win­dows, your views are in­deed beau­ti­ful.

Ho­tel Eden’s 17 months restora­tion by the hands of world-renowned ar­chi­tect and in­te­rior de­sign­ers was re­cently com­pleted, with the reopen­ing on April 1st, 2017.

What does Ho­tel Eden offer? Imag­ine sit­ting on the rooftop ter­race en­joy­ing Mediter­ranean cre­ations to the sights of the city while you dine Ro­man style. This is La Ter­razza, headed by the award-win­ning chef Fabio Ciervo. Skip the bird’s eye view and en­joy the aptly named II Giardino Ris­torante & Bar, which of­fers lighter meals and cock­tails through­out the day. A lit­tle tip: for a ro­man­tic aper­i­tif, find the se­cret bar, La Li­bre­ria.

Though on the same spot since 1889, Ho­tel Eden is any­thing but dated. Its prox­im­ity to Rome’s most mem­o­rable and cel­e­brated sights – the Span­ish Steps and Villa Borgh­ese make Ho­tel Eden unique. It is a slice of his­tory served on a sil­ver plat­ter of moder­nity. dorch­estercol­lec­tion. com
