Few locations in Rome can boast a history as prestigious as that of Niquesa’s Hotel d’Inghilterra. It is beloved for its magnificent location, compelling history, eclectic originality and the effortless elegance with which it welcomes its elite clientele. The building dates to the mid-sixteenth century when it was used as an aristocratic residence for visitors of Palazzo di Torlonia, located across the street. By the 15th century the local area was renowned for hosting the city’s best hotels and attracted foreign visitors and international communities. The nearby luxury shopping district Via Borgognona owes its name to the group of merchants from the region of Burgundy, who populated the district since the early 1400s. In 1845, the Palazzo di Torlonia’s guesthouse was converted into a hotel known, due to its popularity with British visitors, as the Hotel d’Angleterre. One of the hotel’s most famous residents was the English Romantic poet John Keats who spent time in the hotel during the last years of his tragically short life.
Each of 88 unique rooms and suites is a perfectly balanced marriage of traditional and modern freshness that embodies the heart and soul of Italian design. The style is opulent and classic, colour schemes are bold and complement the hotel’s rich history. Each room and suite is lovingly decorated with fabrics, antiques and artworks handpicked to create a unique individuality and the hotel retains the air of a private noble residence.
Only moments from the iconic Spanish Steps and the vibrancy of Via Condotti, Via Borgognona and Via Frattina, our deluxe boutique hotel sits gracefully at the very heart of the historic and fashion district of Rome. The Colosseum, Pantheon and awe-inspiring Roman Forum are all within walking distance or for a more relaxed stroll, the delights of Villa Borghese’s green spaces are also close by. The walled enclave of the Vatican City, the world’s smallest city state and home to the iconic St Peter’s Basilica, Sistine Chapel and Vatican museums can be explored after crossing the mythical River Tiber over one of the city’s ancient bridges. As a base for Rome’s many highlights, the Hotel d’Inghilterra could not be better placed with important monuments, awe-inspiring sites, prestigious fashion hubs, outstanding bars, cafes and restaurants on our doorstep.
With its chic alfresco seating on Via Borgogna, Café Romano brings together classic and modern influences to create a unique equilibrium – a restaurant whose cosmopolitan style, elegant ambiance, select wines and unforgettable food is designed to be savoured day and night.
