Gran Melia Rome Villa Agrippina is a hotel that asks a question of guests, and this is not an easy question to resolve.
No hotel is closer to the Vatican and Sistine Chapel. The location is true perfection, within a stroll of the Eternal City’s artistic hangouts. Narrow streets lead you towards the city’s great cultural sites and more modern pleasures such as fine dining and exclusive shopping.
However, the hotel is every bit as impressive. This is a setting named one of the Leading Hotels in the World and recognised with the Virtuoso award for luxury.
A wander around the lush gardens of the hotel, with panoramic views on all sides, will lead to the spectacular outdoor pool, luxurious spa and restaurants serving the finest local cuisine with menus curated by leading chefs.
Guest rooms and suites have wonderful authentic touches, such as beautiful paintings and bathrooms decorated in Italian limestone.
If you are feeling energetic there is an ultra modern gym and fitness centre, or the step count can be achieved by taking advantage of excursions managed by the courteous hotel staff. Local knowledge can turn a walk out of the hotel into a journey steeped in Roman history, with many ancient sights to be uncovered.
Afternoons can be spent in the exclusive Spa by Clarins, with multi-sensory facilities and the offer of a wholly personalised experience.
Perhaps while enjoying a couples treatment, or the unique dining of the Follie, where Michelin-starred chef Luciano Monosilio, the ‘King of Carbonara’ works his magic, it will start to feel folly to ever leave.
However, with some of the world’s most awe-inspiring sights a short walk away it is worth making the effort.
