Campo Marzio, Rome, Italy
The main building has 5 rooms in total. 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.
We stayed in the Junior Suite (Room 1), which is wallpapered with broad, delicately coloured stripes. There’s an extra sofabed for a child (custom-built around an actual single bed, so more comfortable than most), and this is upholstered in Designer’s Guild fabrics. But our favourite room is the Suite (Room 5), thanks to its 3 huge windows, 2 of which face Piazzale Flaminio. Its sofabed (also for a child) is upholstered in dark damask and there’s a dark marble bathroom.
Of the Deluxe Rooms, Room 2 is the smallest, with olive-green walls and narrow French doors leading onto a small stand-up balcony with outdoor furniture, a rain cover and a little heater overlooking an internal courtyard (perfect for enjoying a glass of Italian vino at the end of the day). 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. You get a personal check-in, daily cleaning and WiFi; for any other requests, there's a "telephone concierge" to help you out.
