Advice for Hotels:
1) I am a big fan of Hotel Inghilterra, it is a block from the Spanish steps (below them) and really couldn’t ask for a better location. Additionally I suggest the Eden, the Raphael, and the incredible Hassler. Regardless you should make sure you get a drink at the Eden’s rooftop bar for amongst the most stunning views of the city you could ask for.
2) I stayed at the Aldrovandi few years back and although it is quite nice it is a bit out of the way, behind the Borghese park… My favourite hotel is Hotel de Russie and I would request a garden view with the little balcony… their breakfast is wonderful!
3) I agree Hotel Inghilterra is the best if you can get one of the redone rooms.
I really liked the Hotel Inghilterra, Great central location near Spanish Steps…
Also for me: The charming Hotel d’Inghilterra a via Bocca di leone.
4) Hotel Eden, amazing view from the rooftop.
5) If you wont to live a Dolce Vita week-end, go to the Excelsior Hotel in Via Veneto.
Here the page to Check Rate for Hotels in Rome.
As always remember you pay at the Hotel.
Advice for Restaurants:
1) There are quite a few, although Nino’s, right near the Spanish steps, is wonderful for lunch. Luigi’s by the colloseum has great seafood. Carbonara, a very touristy spot, in the Campo de Fiori – very resident area – isn’t too bad all things considered, but going next door to get what is arguably the best Torta di Ricotta in the world at the adjoining bakery makes it all well worthwhile.
2) My favourite restaurant is Antica Pesa in Trastevere +390665809236
3) If you look for a romantic dinner in Rome go to: La Terrazza. Great view!!!
4) The best pizza in town is in La Gatta Mangiona, via Ozanam 30, (Monteverde zone)
5) If you are funny and wont to have a very different experiences, have dinner at Due Ladroni in Piazza Nicosia.
6) Da Toto on Via della Carrozza near Spanish Steps, Maccaroni on Via della Coppella, near the Pantheon (mainly locals there) and Doney for a cocktail, on Via Venetto, very famous bar from the “Dolce Vita Era” – note, best in Thurs. nites.
7) Another Restaurant where usually locals go: Da Fortunato al Pantheon
8) Other Restaurants: Met (Ponte Milvio Area) Caminetto, Jeff Blynn, Ai Piani, La Gallura (Parioli Area).
9) You can’t miss the Wynn’s (former Jeff Blynn’s) Restaurant for dinner and GINA for brunch on Sat-Sun.
Wynn’s is in the Parioli area (north of Rome), while GINA is downtown next to the Spanish Steps.
10) Casina Valadier restaurant (Pincio area Villa Borghese between Spanish steps and Piazza del Popolo) for a romantic, elegant or smart-casual dinner on the breath-taking view terrazza!
11) Another typical is Ristorante Lo Scarpone – Gianicolo Hill – classic
Advice for Nightlife:
1) As usual: Salotto 42 for aperitif, (Piazza di Pietra …close to Pantheon), you can go also after dinner for a drink.
2) Rhome lounge club (piazza Augusto Imperatore) after dinner for a soft lounging night or Spazio Novecento (Piazza Guglielmo Marconi – Eur) for a wild dancing night obviously depending on the days but they usually have a great international dj spinning on Fridays. Well, it depends also what are you looking for but there’s lots more.
3) In the center of rome there’s Babel, La Cabala, La Maison, Open Gate.
Out of the center: Room 26 and Jetset.
Portofino World, a world apart.
