Expert Review

If you need a tranquil refuge from the glorious mess that is Rome, try this five-star hotel with elegant, contemporary interiors and state-of-the-art spa, complete with Turkish-style hammam. Part of Rocco Forte's portfolio, the Hotel de Russie was among the first properties to break the fusty design mold a few years back; it's still the first pick for media and fashion types who love the refreshingly contemporary decor and garden bar. Past guests include the likes of Picasso and Jean Cocteau, and the property's extensive terraced gardens are legendary. The hotel has 122 bedrooms including 33 suites and is conveniently located for the shopping district near the Spanish Steps. Some of the rooms are ridiculously small for the price, however, so be sure to check the size when booking. Le Jardin de Russie restaurant serves traditional Italian cuisine, created by a Michelin-starred chef. The adjoining Stravinskij Bar has its own star: Massimo D’Addezio was named best Italian Barman in 2008 by a renowned Italian guide.
