In a northern section of Rome, just a stroll from Villa Borghese, waits the Hotel Villa Duse. Tucked away on a quiet block adjacent Via Elanore Duse, the hotel evokes its namesake Duse: intelligent, romantic, captivating.
A former private residence, Villa Duse is an intimate treat for sophisticated visitors to Rome.
This is a place where every detail is cared for and curated--you'll find the exterior courtyard inviting, the staff pleasant and knowledgable, and the rooms elegantly furnished. Book a room with an outdoor space and you'll be treated to a relaxing oasis from the bustle of the city center. This is the kind of place where you'll want to eat room service breakfast on your terrace and sit there all morning reading and adjusting to the time zone. If you're American you'll want to order the organic eggs (listed as "biological eggs" on the menu, a quirky translation). We had the omelette with ham and cheese and the scrambled eggs with bacon: both were excellent, and a relief from the warnings we'd heard about how hard it would be to find a hearty breakfast with eggs in Rome.
If you're worried about how to get around you may want to stay somewhere closer to the sites. However, if public transportation and taxis don't phase you and you need an smart escape every night from the other tourists, if you want to visit and truly do like the Romans then make a reservation at Villa Duse. You'll be very happy with your decision--and especially so if you have an eye for the sublime and appreciate the thought behind a detail, like Duse herself: "If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive..."
Thank you for a special experience.
