my partner wanted to stay in the middle of everything when in Rome so I booked the Hassler.
On top of the beautiful Spanish steps you truly feel like movie stars when you come out in the evening to get into your car/taxi to go for dinner as all the tourists are celeb spotting.
when i was there a few less well known American actors stayed , brad and angelina have stayed along with tom cruze etc and the late Diana stayed many times and loved the peach bellini cocktails served in the bar.
A bit tired in places if I am honest and the cost of £1600 for 4 nights a little well a lot on the expensive side but what you get is the best in the middle of the best views and tourist spots in rome.
One night we ate at Imago the michelin star restaurant at the top of the hotel with a view of Rome and St Pauls at night truly amazing 350 Euros for the meal with wine but I was truly happy to pay it.
Breakfast in the open garden area in the morning is wonderful but at these prices what do you expect.
One evening in our best dress we ventured out of the hotel to be snapped by Japanese tourists as we walked down the spoanish steps to the trevi fountain, felt like real moviestars until we booked out and caught our easyjet flight back to Manchester.
If you can do it as it is very much worth every penny. Caught a taxi wednesday morning and got to the front during the popes speach and prayers...amazing, love Rome but if you want to do it in style the hassler it has to be.
