Wayfarer TV: Inside Rome’s Elizabeth Unique Hotel

Via delle Colonnette, 35, Rome 00186

by James Wilkinson

Evoking the spirit of a privileged traveler on a grand Old World tour of Italy, Elizabeth Unique Hotel, a Design Hotels member, marries the Rome of yesterday with finely appointed, art-filled luxury of the moment.

Set in a gloriously restored 17th-century palazzo in the heart of the capital’s historic center amid the picturesque and pedestrianised Via del Corso area, the 33-room townhouse is a hive of sophisticated design and international allure, with a bounty of arched walls, lacquered wooden panels, reproduced antique wallpaper prints, canopy beds, couture fabrics, and carefully curated artwork setting the stage.

The rooms and suites range from 20 to 40 square meters, and many offer views over the picturesque Via del Corso. The Initiale room, the Deluxe room, and the Junior Suite—at 20, 30, and 30 square meters, respectively—all play host to a queen-size bed and a bathroom with a shower, while some of the Deluxe rooms and Junior Suites also boast a bathtub or a sauna.

The Junior Suite also offers a lounge area with a sofa, armchair, and coffee table, and the 40-square-meter Suite features a king-size bed and a separate lounge, and many also include a bathtub, a sauna, or a gym.

Through a private entrance on Via delle Colonnette, just a few minutes from the famous Spanish steps and adjacent to the city’s top restaurants and boutiques, guests are greeted by a majestic double-height entrance that leads to a refined lobby and reading room warmed by an open fireplace.

Inviting public spaces also include Bar Bacharach and Bistrot, a bar and bistro that open onto a terrace made of stone and wood – a magical urban garden filled with the scent of jasmine – offering up the best gourmet breakfast in Rome thanks to an exquisitely researched menu that includes local and international delicacies.
