    Hotel Eden
    Rome
    1.4 miles to city center
    #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

    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.

    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.

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.

    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.

Regardless of whether you choose a classically decorated room or a recently refurbished suite, you'll find marble bathrooms and in-room amenities like minibars and free Wi-Fi. The property is also home to a spa, a hair salon, two bars and three restaurants, including the Michelin-starred Imàgo, which offers panoramic views from the sixth floor. If you time your visit between October and April, consider grabbing a drink at the wood-centric Hassler Bar – a recommendation from recent guests. When Hassler Bar is not open, sip on a cocktail in the outdoor Palm Court. Part of The Leading Hotels of the World, the property participates in the Leaders Club loyalty program.

    This property overlooking the Arno river in Florence underwent a major renovation in 2017, and travelers could not be more impressed.

Upgraded rooms and suites offer more square footage and extra perks like separate sitting areas, minibars and balconies with river vistas. Recent guests described their rooms as beautiful and comfortable. Travelers were also complimentary of the on-site restaurants, especially the Michelin-starred Borgo San Jacopo, which serves contemporary Italian cuisine and houses a wine cellar with 900 labels. For a lighter meal, visitors can dine at the Picteau Lounge Bar, which also offers afternoon tea and views of the river from its terrace. While past guests said the property was stunning and luxurious, they cited the friendly, attentive staff as the highlight of their stays.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 424 reviewsTripAdvisor (424)

    Hotel Il Pellicano was the place to be in the 1960s and '70s, when European royalty and stars like Charlie Chaplin and Henry Fonda made this place their second home. Today, the luxury hotel is still filled with timeless glamour, which can be found everywhere from the designer couture in the property's boutique to the Michelin-starred Italian cuisine at Pellicano Restaurant. Other lavish amenities include a wine cellar with approximately 1,000 bottles of wine, a spa with Florentine Santa Maria Novella beauty products, a tennis court and a beach club with a heated saltwater pool. The elegance continues throughout the guest rooms and suites, all of which feature marble bathrooms and free Wi-Fi access. Upgrade to a master suite for extra perks like a private saltwater pool, a terrace with Mediterranean views and a fireplace. Recent guests said the beds were incredibly comfortable and also praised the hotel's friendly service and the casual Tuscan-style cuisine offered at Pelligrill. And while some appreciated the property's more remote location in Porto Ercole, others wished it was situated closer to town for easier access to the area's restaurants and shops. Part of The Leading Hotels of the World, the property participates in the Leaders Club loyalty program. Note: This hotel closes for the winter season.
