Margutta 19 - Luxury Hotel in Rome
A palazzo turned boutique retreat on Rome’s picture-perfect ‘artist’s street’
There is a lot of history swirling around the cobblestones and shuttered windows of Via Margutta. It’s on this ochre-hued street that Stravinsky and Fellini made their homes, Picasso fell for his ballerina wife and Gregory Peck set out to woo Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. And it’s now home to Margutta 19 – a refined boutique retreat in a beautiful palazzo.
That palazzo is now a chic and initimate haven of elegant Italian design. Open the door to your room or suite to discover pastel shades, airy marble bathrooms, and fine Frette linens, towels and robes. A spacious suite ups the luxury levels with a freestanding tub, walk-in shower and the loveliest views – or there’s the Garden Suite for added privacy. Downstairs, celebrated chef Angelo Troiani concocts small plates with big flavours in the Margutta 19 restaurant, Assaggia.
Beyond the lobby door, stroll along Via Margutta past residents going about their days and the odd parked Vespa. You’ll feel a world away from the throng of the Spanish Steps, despite being moments away. Margutta 19 backs onto Villa Borghese and many of the Eternal City’s not-to-be-missed sights are close by. Although a cocktail as you drink in the Borghese garden backdrop may tempt you to linger at the hotel.
