    Hotel Eden
    Rome
    #1 in Best Hotels in Italy
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 212 reviewsTripAdvisor (212)
    Free WiFi

    Since opening its doors in 1889, Hotel Eden has served as a temporary home in central Rome for everyone from foreign aristocrats to renowned celebrities to typical tourists. Recent visitors said that this incredibly luxurious (and expensive) property practically exudes elegance thanks to its 17-month renovation, which was finished in 2017. The hotel's lobby (where the classy La Libreria bar is located) features marble floors, high-end furniture and an abundance of gold accents. Its 98 rooms and suites offer a similarly neutral but sophisticated aesthetic. All of the accommodations include artwork, complimentary Wi-Fi access, Nespresso coffee makers and flat-screen TVs. Plus, butler service is available upon request. Standard bathrooms are covered in marble, mirrors and gold, and guests can expect to find luxury amenities like Italian Bottega Veneta toiletries. After settling into their lodgings, visitors can enjoy gourmet meals and panoramic views at La Terrazza, Hotel Eden's top floor restaurant. For a more relaxed vibe, Il Giardino Ristorante & Bar has both classic Italian fare and healthier menu options. Despite its opulent design, stellar location and high-class restaurants, previous guests were most impressed with Hotel Eden's exceptional employees and service.

    Le Sirenuse Hotel
    Positano
    #2 in Best Hotels in Italy
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1108 reviewsTripAdvisor (1108)
    Free WiFi

    For guests, everything about this Positano hotel is next to perfect. From the Mediterranean decor and out-of-this-world service to a breathtaking location facing the ocean, Le Sirenuse was worth every penny, according to travelers. First and foremost, almost all of the hotel's rooms overlook the ocean and most are equipped with either a balcony or terrace. All accommodations feature whitewashed walls and are decorated with Old World furniture and colorful accents, including floors adorned with handmade, painted tiles. And for such a seemingly quaint property, the hotel is well-equipped, offering a spa, gym and pool to its guests. But the pool is by far one of the hotel's most beautiful attributes. Offering views of the cliffs and adjoining sea, and surrounded by potted plants and lemon trees, the pool features a giant mosaic mural of mermaids. Dining can also be found alongside the pool and other alfresco spots around the hotel, including the Michelin-starred La Sponda. Le Sirenuse can also organize excursions and adventures, some of which are complimentary. Peruse the hotel's daily activity calendar and you will find opportunities for hiking, bay cruises and even a visit to a local limoncello factory. And as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property participates in the Leaders Club rewards program.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1029 reviewsTripAdvisor (1029)
    Free WiFi

    According to recent travelers, Il San Pietro di Positano's location along the Amalfi Coast is one of its best highlights. Other standout features at this Relais & Châteaux outpost include its private beach, tennis court, semicircle-shaped swimming pool and private yacht, the Joey. Inside the hotel, visitors will find a spa and fitness center, plus an open-kitchen restaurant that offers cooking classes and Zass, a Michelin-starred dining venue that serves up homegrown produce and local flavors alongside panoramic views of Praiano and the Tyrrhenian Sea. When it's time to rest, guests their accommodation, which feature private terraces with Mediterranean vistas, complimentary Wi-Fi access, LCD TVs, seating areas and classic blue, yellow and white decor throughout. Past visitors especially enjoyed their accommodations' beautiful interiors and comfortable beds. Guests also raved about the staff, saying they were attentive and friendly.

    Belmond Hotel Caruso
    Ravello
    #4 in Best Hotels in Italy
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 872 reviewsTripAdvisor (872)
    Free WiFi

    Perched on cliffs above the Amalfi Coast, Belmond Hotel Caruso is housed in a former 11th-century castle. Ancient walls and frescoed ceilings remain, now married with modern amenities like an infinity-edge swimming pool (one of the world's most beautiful), iPods preloaded with your favorite songs, an air-conditioned fitness center, a shopping boutique and various kids activities. A spa with an extensive menu of treatments is also available on-site. All rooms and suites include marble bathrooms, Wi-Fi and writing desks, and almost all accommodations offer private gardens or balconies or terraces with city or Mediterranean Sea views. When you're hungry, visitors recommend dining at Belvedere Restaurant for traditional Italian cuisine or savoring pizzas and salads at the poolside restaurant and bar. (Some caution, though, that meals at the on-site dining venues are expensive.) The real standout here – that is, aside from the panoramic vistas and the complimentary boat tours – is the impeccable service; recent guests gushed about everyone from the helpful concierge desk and warm reception staff to the bartenders that remembered personalized drink orders.

    J.K. Place Roma
    Rome
    #5 in Best Hotels in Italy
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 540 reviewsTripAdvisor (540)
    Free WiFi

    Located in the heart of Rome's fashion district, J.K. Place Roma is filled with designer furniture, rugs and lighting by Michele Bönan. Notable artwork hangs from the walls and royal blue velvet sofas complement the ultramodern yet elegant vibe. The hotel has 30 rooms and suites, the most basic of which feature LED TVs, gilded mirrors, free Wi-Fi access, complimentary minibars and balconies with Eternal City views. Master Rooms include hardwood floors, rosewood canopy beds, Italian marble bathrooms and walk-in closets. Nestled on top of the hotel is the J.K.Cafe, a venue that houses a lounge, bar and restaurant. Recent visitors said the bountiful breakfast served inside is a treat, and many diners appreciated that the chefs had options to satisfy vegan and gluten-free diets as well. The Italian restaurant is also open for brunch, lunch and dinner. Another highlight worth noting is the personalized service; past guests said they had never stayed at a hotel with such friendly helpful staff members. The one downside to this property is the steep cost, though travelers point out that prior stays here were more than worth the price and recommend saving up to splurge on a suite. And as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property participates in the Leaders Club rewards program.

    Venice
    #6 in Best Hotels in Italy
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1601 reviewsTripAdvisor (1601)
    Free WiFi

    Located along Venice's Grand Canal, The Gritti Palace, A Luxury Collection Hotel is nestled in the heart of the action. Here, guests gather for meals on the famous Gritti Terrace to watch gondolas and vaporetti (water taxis) transport tourists and locals around the City of Water. Inside, luxurious touches appear everywhere: Murano glass chandeliers hang from the ceiling, Lorenzo Rubelli fabrics bedeck the accommodations, art adorns the walls and the property's original terrazzo floors, from when the palace was commissioned to be built by Doge of Venice Andrea Gritti in 1475, can be found throughout. Today, the hotel houses The Gritti Epicurean School, the Gritti Spa, the elegant Club del Doge Restaurant and 82 restored rooms and suites – 10 of which were inspired by well-known guests like Ernest Hemingway and Peggy Guggenheim. Standard rooms feature glass chandeliers, antique furniture, marble bathrooms, complimentary Wi-Fi and incredibly comfortable bed linens, according to recent guests. Visitors were also impressed with the impeccable service, gourmet cuisine and well-equipped fitness center. And while staying at this hotel will cost you a pretty penny, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points and save some money at this property.

    Free WiFi

    This Italian outpost of the Four Seasons brand offers guests plenty of on-site perks. Travelers have access to a spa, an outdoor pool (open seasonally from May to October), a year-round a whirlpool, rentable e-bikes and acres of lush garden space. Dining here is top-notch, too: the quaint La Magnolia offers breakfast, Michelin-starred Il Palagio serves up rich Italian cuisine and an outdoor eatery and pool tree bar offer guests space to relax in a more casual dining environment. Accommodations blend the casual, relaxed feel of home with elegant and bright Tuscan decor. Rooms include writing desks, flat-screen TVs, down duvets and pillows, free Wi-Fi access and marble bathrooms, plus views of the gardens and surrounding neighborhood. Recent visitors appreciated the Four Seasons Hotel Firenze's picturesque and convenient location, citing the grounds as gorgeous and the customer service as attentive. You'll find the hotel just north of Florence's city center, and top attractions like the Galleria dell'Academia and the Basilica di Santa Croce are within walking distance.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1628 reviewsTripAdvisor (1628)
    Free WiFi

    Located along the Gulf of Naples in Sorrento, the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria is one giant Mediterranean mansion itching to be explored. Nineteenth-century facades, antique furniture and gorgeous frescos can be found left and right. Since opening in the early 19th century, it's played host to numerous famous faces, including Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren, in addition to various artists and politicians. Today, the hotel is run by the fifth generation of the family that opened the property and, according to recent guests, the service couldn't be better. Reviewers also raved about the oceanfront location, which can be admired from various points throughout the property, including the accommodations (all rooms feature sea views) and the Michelin-starred restaurant, Terrazza Bosquet. And in the summer, the hotel offers boat rentals that can be taken to nearby Positano or Capri. The hotel is also equipped with numerous services and amenities, including a gym, a spa, a pool and a 5-acre park that is home to gardens, sports courts and a playground. And, believe it or not, the Excelsior even has its own Roman ruins on-site. Keep in mind, Leaders Club members can earn or redeem perks here.

    #9 in Best Hotels in Italy
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1303 reviewsTripAdvisor (1303)
    Free WiFi

    Located along Lake Como's western shore, this Preferred Legend outpost sits near Lake Como's upscale villas – some of which are owned by celebrities like Madonna and George Clooney – and offers guests prime access to shops, restaurants and the Villa Carlotta art museum. Grand Hotel Tremezzo started welcoming guests in the early 1900s and features period details like a 19th-century billiards table and silk window coverings. Old-world touches, including bow windows, marble bathrooms and antique furnishings, are also available in the hotel's 92 guest rooms and suites. Standard accommodations have park vistas, while upgraded rooms and most suites offer views of Lake Como. Though some former travelers bemoaned their accommodations' lack of space and high rates, many appreciated the views. Past visitors were also impressed with the hotel's friendly staff and ESPA-affiliated spa. For more picturesque panoramas, guests can lounge on the property's private beach or take a dip in the floating pool set within Lake Como. When you've worked up an appetite, enjoy casual bites by the beach or the Flowers Pool (a quiet pool situated in the property's park), wine and grilled dishes in L'Escale Trattoria & Wine Bar or a gourmet Italian-inspired meal at La Terrazza Restaurant.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 300 reviewsTripAdvisor (300)
    Free WiFi

    A white-columned estate overlooking the Bay of Naples, J.K. Place Capri is elegantly decorated in deep blues, crisp whites and rich yellows. Lavish rooms are outfitted with walk-in closets, bathrooms with double vanities and windows that boast panoramic views of Monte Solaro. Select accommodations offer additional features, like balconies or terraces and canopy beds. When not out exploring the island, guests can spend their days unwinding at the on-site spa, sipping handcrafted cocktails at the bar or lounging by the pool – which is open exclusively to hotel guests. Recent patrons recommended dining on JKitchen's outdoor terrace, noting that the "gorgeous" Mediterranean-inspired food was worth the expense. The impeccable service provided in the restaurant and hotel garnered a lot of praise as well. And while some wished the property was situated a bit closer to downtown, others appreciated the unbeatable views found at the more removed location. Plus, central Capri is conveniently accessible via the hotel's complimentary shuttle service. Note: This hotel is closed during the 2018/19 winter season and will reopen in mid-April.

    Even though Villa Cora is a bit removed from the center of Florence (about 2 miles south), recent travelers loved its setting amid gardens and greenery. (They also appreciated the free shuttle service into town.) This boutique property houses just 45 rooms and suites, spread throughout a main villa and two additional buildings. Accommodations vary in type, but all include antique furnishings, Carrara marble bathrooms and views of the surrounding gardens and hills of Florence. Some rooms also have balconies.

What's more, the hotel can arrange a cooking class for burgeoning chefs young and old to learn the basics and try their hands at "haute cuisine." As a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property participates in the Leaders Club rewards program.

    Nestled within Mount Tauro's cliffs in the Sicilian city of Taormina, the Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo is a popular retreat for couples and families. In all of the property's 70 guest rooms and suites, you'll find neutral color palettes with hardwood floors, marble bathrooms and bright accent linens and throw pillows, plus in-room perks like free Wi-Fi and iPod docking stations.

Other on-site amenities include several gardens, a spa and a heated swimming pool. Additionally, a private beach – accessible via the Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo's complimentary shuttle – is available at the hotel's sister property, the Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea.

    Free WiFi

    Known for its unparalleled bespoke service, the 37-room Portrait Firenze caters to guests' needs by adding personal touches in the rooms and crafting individualized itineraries. Past guests said the prearrival questionnaire was so detailed that the temperature in the suite was set to the correct day and night preference. That attention to detail can also be found in all rooms, designed by renowned Florentine architect Michele Bönan. Warm woods and soft grays decorate the rooms, and standard amenities include cashmere throws, marble bathrooms and mini iPads that are free to use during your stay. Plus, many suites boast riverside views of the Ponte Vecchio. The Portrait Firenze, owned by the Ferragamo family, also houses the Borgo San Jacopo, a Michelin-starred restaurant that serves contemporary Italian cuisine, as well as Caffè dell'Oro, The Fusion Bar & Restaurant, the Picteau Lounge Bar and the La Terrazza Rooftop Bar. Additionally, the property is home to the White Iris Beauty SPA by Comfort Zone, a full-service spa adorned in natural Tuscan wood and stone. Though several recent guests insisted on requesting a room with a view to justify the high price tag, most agreed that the hotel's top-notch service alone was worth it. And as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property participates in the Leaders Club rewards program.

    Borgo Egnazia

    #15 in Best Hotels in Italy
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1640 reviewsTripAdvisor (1640)
    Free WiFi

    Recent guests can’t help but fawn over all that Borgo Egnazia has to offer its guests. The expansive hotel, which is located a short distance from the Apulian town of Savelletri, Italy, is made up of so many centuries-old stone buildings that you might need a map to get around. And although the images of crowded, beachside resorts where travelers are bumping elbows to get to beach and pool chairs might flash in front of your eyes, don’t worry, Borgo Egnazia is not that kind of place. Here, the evergreen grounds and old stone architecture keep the area a peaceful place to pass through year-round. Plus, rooms and villas are spread out pretty evenly, so you won’t be sharing a building with 20 or so rooms. Accommodations maintain the same kind of serenity found on the grounds, with elements such as neutral tones, stone accents and cozy amenities like plush linens and living areas. Rooms also feature modern conveniences like minibars, Wi-Fi access and LCD TVs with on-demand programming. You can also try one of the six restaurants on-site, indulge in a treatment at the Vair Spa or take advantage of on-site activities such as tennis, bike rides, golf at the San Domenico Golf Club, classes at the cooking school and so much more. There is even an on-site kids and teens club. However, recent guests caution that a stay here comes with a very big price tag.
