Casa Montani

City Centre, Rome, Italy

Rooms

The main building has 5 rooms in total: 3 Deluxe Rooms and 2 suites. All have heavy Designer’s Guild curtains, wenge wood floors that are oiled daily, and kingsize beds with soft white Tebro sheets, goose-down comforters and shot-silk bedcovers. Bathrooms have carved antique-style mirrors that contrast with the sleek modern fittings. The 2 suites have bathtubs, the rest showers, but all have Frette towels and Hèrmes toiletries.

The Junior Suite (Room 1) is wallpapered with broad, delicately coloured stripes. There’s an extra sofabed (custom-built around an actual single bed, so more comfortable than most), and this is upholstered in Designer’s Guild fabrics. The Suite (Room 5) has 3 windows, 2 of which face Piazzale Flaminio. Its sofabed is upholstered in dark damask and there’s a dark marble bathroom. The Suite looks over Porta del Popolo, while the Junior Suite has a street view; both have flatscreen TVs.

Of the Deluxe Rooms, Room 2 is the smallest, with olive-green walls and narrow French doors leading onto a small stand-up balcony overlooking an internal courtyard. Room 3 is a little bigger, and has long views over the street. Much-requested Room 4 is a little larger again, and is particularly romantic thanks to its elaborately carved headboard and street views. Deluxe Rooms are assigned on arrival.

There's also a separate apartment for 2-4 about 20 minutes' walk away on the Piazza dei Satiri, perfect for a family (or 3-4 friends) wanting their own pad in Rome. We haven't seen it yet, but it is clearly finished with the same quality and attention to detail, but in a more muted palette of silvers and greys. There are 2 bedrooms (1 double, 1 single), each with a marbled ensuite bathroom, and a living room with a double sofabed and a simple kitchenette in the corner. High lime-washed ceilings, black Ghost chairs and silver-painted dressers add a touch of class. You get a personal check-in, daily cleaning and WiFi; for any other requests, there's a "telephone concierge" to help you out.

Save to favouritesPrintMailCasa MontaniCasa Montani overlooks Porta del Popolo, the old Roman gateway that was once the main entrance to the city for visitors from the north, and which leads onto the spectacular disc of Piazza del Popolo. The Casa, tucked away on the third floor, is one of Romeís new breed of discreet townhouse conversions, and has been in the family for generations: Giuseppe Montaniís great-grandfather bought the place directly from the builder in 1916. Today, the casa is not a hotel, but an intimate upper-range guesthouse. Itís a labour of love, designed by architect Liliana Sciacca, and decorated by its French-Italian owners with custom-made furniture (such as glossy lacquered desks) and original paintings by Giuseppe Butera. The lobby-reception has walls hand-painted by Philippe Gandon in bold black and white stripes that call to mind 1930s chic, or Audrey Hepburn photographed by Cecil Beaton. For the standard of comfort, for the design and fittings, for the location, and for Rome, prices are reasonable.
