The Best Views in Rome at the Hotel Hassler

November 30, 2010 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Hotel Hassler, RomeOne of our favorite hotels in the Eternal City sits atop the Spanish Steps, offering extraordinary views of Rome's skyline and St. Peter's dome at the Vatican. A recent article in the Toronto Star calls attention to the views from the hotel that's a celeb magnet. Lucky guests get bird's eye views from the third-floor spa, the gym, the seventh floor terrace, and the guest rooms at the Hotel Hassler:
The tiled rooftops spill out in the distance, and the hills behind the quirky Trastevere neighbourhood rise a few kilometres away. The church towers rise towards the heavens, and you can gaze down upon a small sidewalk café across from the hotel and watch the tourists mill about at the top of the famed Spanish Steps. There are many five-star hotels in the world. There are many fine hotels in Rome. There are none that boast the location — or the views — of the Hassler. The fact they also have a smashing garden for breakfast, a beautifully ornate room for drinks, one of the top restaurants in the city and first-rate service that caused the likes of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes to rent out three floors after their wedding tells you there’s more than just a stunning vista at work.
Like we said: The best views in town coupled with impeccable service make the Hotel Hassler one of the stars of Europe, not just the Italian capital. Click here to learn about a special package, including some meals and massages, available at the Hassler until December 22, 2010.
