This industrial-style B&B is a recent project by Salvi & Associati, an award-winning architecture studio that transformed this 19th-century palace into five unique rooms and a suite. Each room is expertly decorated with designer furniture and the building’s original arched ceiling and exposed brick walls are nicely complemented by contemporary art from Italy’s most famous artists. The rooms are also soundproofed to ensure a good night’s sleep and breakfast is served every morning in the gallery-like bar.

Owner and host, Alessandra Bruti Liberati, had a burgeoning career in interior design before getting her hands on this project. The professional touch shows – original details, such as terracotta floors and doors from the 1800s, fuse effortlessly with Alessandra’s contemporary style and flair for fabrics. You’ll feel like you’re visiting the apartment of your stylish Roman friend, especially when Alessandra welcomes you personally and shares her favourite restaurant suggestions.

Previously the defensive tower of the Colonna family residence, this 13th-century folly now houses five guest rooms. Inside, it’s lavish, with vivid frescoed ceilings and brightly-hued abstract art by Rome native Natino Chirico – a darling of the Italian art world. Owners Manuela and Alvin are happy to advise on all things Rome related, from how to find fine food and wine to haggling with street vendors.

These cottage-style rooms overlook Porta del Popolo, the ancient gate to the city of Rome, making it a perfect home base for a short trip to the Piazza del Popolo, Villa Borghese and the Spanish Steps. Bespoke furniture is locally crafted and the earth-toned fabrics give each space a dreamy feel. Best of all, breakfast is delivered to your room so you don’t even have to pull back the covers to start the day in style.

If you’ve always wanted to sleep in an artist’s house, surrounded by artwork and a creative atmosphere, Luisa Longo’s studio-turned-guesthouse is for you. Luisa was born in Bologna and started painting more than three decades ago in Paris. She uses a distinctive fading effect on silks, organza and satin to create eye-catching pieces. She’ll tell you all about it over breakfast in her snug dining room or out on the sunny patio. The three restful rooms, naturally, feature the artist’s work printed on the walls as well as on silk and satin fabrics.

6. Campo Marzio

Bed and Breakfast
