Chapter Roma
Rome’s historic Regola neighborhood

Rome has glamorous hotels, opulent hotels, luxurious hotels. But it doesn’t have many hotels that are in the top tier when it comes to pure style. Whatever the explanation, Hotel Chapter Roma is an illuminating exception. Add one part dark and moody industrial modernism, one part gem-toned Art Deco-inspired swank, and one part irreverent street-inspired art and you’ve got yourself an unforgettable experience.

This hotel also has an owner with quite a good history with Modern Boutique Hotels that may make an interesting read.

Part of my Preferred Partners Portfolio, includes:
   • Complimentary upgrade upon hotel check-in, based upon availability
   • €25 minibar credit per stay
   • Welcome drink per guest at The Lobby Bar

The JKCafe Lounge, Bar & Restaurant offering Italian and international specialties, and the roof garden bar are the perfect places to relax the “JK” way.

Villa Spalletti Trivelli Dimora d'Epoca

Villa Spalletti Trivelli Dimora d’Epoca
Quirinal Hill

One of my favorite smaller hotels in Rome. Every room is very different in this Mansion turned into a hotel. And life in this posh Roman villa is indeed sweet, and if ever there were a hotel that perfectly exemplifies the genre, it’s the Villa Spalletti Trivelli, on Quirinal Hill around the south side of the Palace.
