Why Stay At Hotel Lord Byron
This Art Deco-style, 32-suite villa in Rome has a stellar location near the Villa Borghese, just steps from the celebrated Via Veneto in the city's historic center.
Amid the ancient charms of the Eternal City, in the Parioli neighborhood known for its leafy boulevards and grand residences, Lord Byron is a petite auberge filled with grand marble halls, silver statues, and life-size portraits. Although the hotel may lack the palatial-like grandeur found in many other central Rome properties, its Art Deco style provides a vibrant, comfortable home-base—from the jazzy purple parlor chairs in the bar to the crackling fire in a stone fireplace that warms the main lounge—plus a location that's a scenic 20-minute walk through the Borghese gardens to the glittering Via Condotti, Rome's premier shopping boulevard. Upstairs, the 32 suites match the unique public spaces thanks to patterned wallpaper, plump retro loungers, and boldly colored cushions and throws, and each morning, guests awaken to complimentary farm-fresh yogurt, pastries, and Italian espresso before starting the day at the Colosseum, Pantheon, or the Sistine Chapel, a 10-minute tram ride away through Parioli.
You won't have to travel far to taste some of Rome's top dishes: the on-site Sapori del Lord Byron restaurant serves an inventive spin on local standards such as trofie pasta with rabbit ragù and stewed Mediterranean chicken.
Ask the concierge to arrange a bicycle rental, and you'll spend the afternoon cycling the manicured pathways through the 200-acre Villa Borghese gardens, just 10 minutes away.
Arrive at Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport (FCO) which is approximately 24 miles (about 60-90 minutes depending on traffic) from the hotel.Via Guiseppe di Notaris, 5, Rome, Rome, Italy
