HOTEL LOCARNO ROME

Harper's Bazaar (UK) - - Escape -

When in Rome, join the fash­ion­able crowd at the fab­u­lous Hotel Locarno, sit­ting be­tween the river and Villa Borgh­ese park, and just a pace or two from the Span­ish Steps. Founded in 1925, this art deco gem was fre­quented by the Twen­ties movie and lit­er­ary elite, in­clud­ing Mimmo Pal­ladino and Enzo Cuc­chi, and is still a cul­tural mag­net to­day. Two early-19th-cen­tury houses are linked by an en­chant­ing gar­den restau­rant, and there’s one of the buzzi­est cock­tail bars in the city. Down­stairs, you’ll find an­tique fur­ni­ture, rich vel­vet so­fas and gor­geous mu­rals, while the con­tem­po­rary comforts of the sunny, high-ceilinged bed­rooms are un­par­al­leled. jn Hotel Locarno, from about £215 a room a night (www.hotel­locarno.com).
