Rome, Italy, is one of those magical cities, which I believe one should visit at least once in a lifetime. Rome, has so much to offer, that you could stay there for months and not see it all! When I visited Rome, I was specifically looking for a hotel in the center of it all, which offered old world charm and was NOT a chain hotel. Chain hotels.. I’m sorry yuk! At least when it comes to oversees travel. If you are looking for authenticity, my suggestion is to go the three/four star route and surround yourself in luxury, grandeur and a unique experience!!

This 96-room hotel in Rome was designed by famed architect Adam Tihany. A native of Italy and a true design genius, I believe Tihany does hospitality design simply better than anyone else.

Tihany has designed several hotels throughout Italy, I dare say you can not go wrong staying in any one of them.
