A few steps from the luxurious Villa Borghese and the chic shopping of Via Veneto, the exclusive Hotel Lord Byron, once a patrician villa, provides the best of both worlds. In close proximity to enjoy the bustling Eternal City’s main attractions, yet secluded enough to relax away from the hoi polloi in the Villa’s unique otherworldly charms. The hotel is housed in a pristine and impeccably renovated 1930’s white building and the interiors are enriched with a tasteful art collection, lovingly created by the hotel owner, Amedeo Ottaviani over the decades.
The rooms and suites reflect the 30s’ ambiance with mahogany and rosewood furniture, exuberant fabrics and vintage marble baths along with private balconies, enormous beds and crisp linen. There are only 32 rooms and suites making the service even more personalised, as staff learn their guests’ names. The suites are of particular note thanks to breath taking views of the Italian capital.
Sapori di Lord Byron, with its light cordon bleu pan-Italian cuisine, is firmly established on the Roman smart set’s list of venues for high-level entertaining with a fittingly encyclopaedic wine list.

Sip on a cocktail or a glass of Italian spumante and enjoy homemade bread sandwiches, canapés and finger food. as piano music sooth the soul.
