Hotel Locarno a "stylish lighthouse" that will brighten up your stay in the "Eternal City"…
Opened in 1925, Hotel Locarno, a four-star hotel in the historic centre of Rome, is a refined ‘guesthouse’; a gem of class and charm and authentic guardian of a certain era. The hotel has an unbreakable bond with the world of art and culture; over the years it has offered shelter for artists, film-makers, writers, musicians and travellers who have chosen it as their refuge and indeed it still does today. You will often find them deep in conversation at the tables of our intimate winter garden or Lounge Bar. Many directors have used the hotel as a setting in popular films and the Genevan director Bernard Weber chose it as the star of his feature film ‘Hotel Locarno’ in 1978. Author Alain Elkann also set his last novel, ‘Hotel Locarno’, here.
The Hotel Locarno is located at Via Della Penna 22, an exclusive position just a short distance from the splendid Piazza del Popolo in the heart of Rome’s historic centre. A pleasant walk will lead you to Piazza di Spagna, the Trinità dei Monti, Piazza Navona, the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, Piazza Venezia, Ara Pacis and the Colosseum in no time at all.
The hotel is spread over two adjacent buildings linked by a delightful garden where the scent of flowers and centuries-old wisteria drifts on the air, all part of the Hotel’s romantic atmosphere. In spring and summer, this garden awaits guests for breakfast, lunch and wonderful aperitifs.
Stepping over the threshold of the Hall into the captivating spaces beyond is like stepping back in time: the original Art Nouveau style from the early 20th century has been preserved and reinterpreted over the years for a unique look where period furniture and precious finishings combine harmoniously with the precious upholstery, paintings and posters by famous poster artist Anselmo Ballester.
A total of 66 rooms and suites, each different from the last in terms of size, furnishings and decoration – but all strictly antique -, are equipped with all modern comforts so as to transport guests into a world of refined relaxation.
