If you’re considering the romantic city of Roma, Italy for your honeymoon, then look no further than high above the famed Spanish Steps where an elegant little hotel overlooks the sprawling city and welcomes you with warmth and sophistication. Hotel Hassler is the spot where the stars go (yep, even Clooney) but it’s also home to some lavish destination (and local) weddings and a great spot to honeymoon if you want to see the eternal city.
The 96 rooms and suites are beautifully designed with European charm, each different from one another, some suiting the more modern couple while others can enjoy more of a nod to the old world. If you’re not just staying here but celebrating too, I suggest one of the penthouse or presidential rooftop suites so you can entertain on your massive balcony with sights of the entire city (and perhaps even take a dip in your jacuzzi as night falls).
You certainly can’t beat the location, literally steps from the Spanish Steps and the oh-so popular shopping district below (known as the luxury center of the city). Then when you return from a day of taking in the rich history of the area (and modern shops too), enjoy dinner atop the hotel at Imago, a Michelin-starred restaurant with a seriously creative spin to the Italian food you’ve come to know and love in Rome.
If you’re there in the warmer months of the year, enjoy afternoon cocktails in the courtyard before heading to the library or lounge for light bites.
And don’t forget to indulge in the spa! With locally sourced products created specifically for and by the hotel, you’ll love the aroma you take with you when you go.
From five star food and drink to stunning views of this magical city, this is one stop to be sure to hit on your European honeymoon. Why? Well, basically, because Hotel Hassler has it all!
