Villa Spalletti Trivelli, Rome

Live like a member of Roman high society at this gorgeous villa is nestled in the heart of the Eternal City. The historic residence is over a century old and was home to the Spalletti Trivelli family before it opened its doors to visitors as a luxury boutique hotel. Set in its own traditional Italian garden the intimate which exudes a home away from home atmosphere has 12 unique rooms, two garden suites and three apartments, decorated with original antiques and furniture that will win your heart within seconds. This is the perfect tranquil spot for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city without missing out on the incredible sights.


Villa Spalletti Trivelli is sat on one of the seven original hills of the city and just half an hour away by car from Rome airport. We couldn’t think of a better place to base ourselves before venturing out into the wonders of Rome, the villa is walking distance away from the Colosseum, Fontana di Trevi, the Quirinale Palace and the Spanish Steps. And if you can’t wait to splurge on those Italian fineries then the famous shopping districts of Via Del Corso and Via Condotti are close by too.

Your room

Each of the unique deluxe rooms at the villa blends classicism with contemporary comfort perfectly. Think Italian marble bathrooms filled with L’Occitane products, and traditional elaborate wall hangings, as well as the sumptuous handmade pure linen sheets replicating the family’s coat of arms. You’re guaranteed a beautiful view too as half the rooms overlook the hotel’s gardens and half the gardens of the Quirinale. If you want to set up home in the city for a little longer then the spacious garden apartments are perfect for longer stays.

Why we like it?

We’re fascinated by the history of this charming hotel, making it hard to drag us away from its almighty library that contains the original book collection of Count Spalletti Trivelli. You can enjoy a relaxing afternoon tea in the Sala del Camino whilst poring over these antique novels. Breakfast is definitely worth getting up for as well, dine alfresco in the gardens and indulge in traditional Italian breads and prosciutto. We loved the weekly wine tasting evenings, where guests can mingle and try sumptuous wines and cheese made produced at the family vineyard. The hotel is also where you can find a secret underground spa, where you can enjoy a massage and the steam room in total privacy.
