    Le Sirenuse Hotel
    Positano
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    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.

    J.K. Place Roma
    Rome
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    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.

    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.

    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.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1182 reviewsTripAdvisor (1182)
    Free WiFi

    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. Outside of their rooms, visitors will find a variety of features, such as a spa with a hammam (Turkish bath), sauna and gym, and an outdoor pool surrounded by vibrant gardens. There are ample places to grab a meal and a drink on-site, whether you prefer to lounge on the rooftop and take in the views with a flute of Champagne or sit down for a full meal indoors or on the patio (depending on the time of year). 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.

    Portrait Firenze
    Florence
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 693 reviewsTripAdvisor (693)
    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
    Fasano
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    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.

    Hassler Roma

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1215 reviewsTripAdvisor (1215)
    Free WiFi

    Situated at the top of the Spanish Steps in the heart of Rome's historic downtown, Hassler Roma offers visitors prime access to the Trevi Fountain and a variety of shops and restaurants. You can also reach other attractions like the Colosseum and Santa Maria della Vittoria by taking the metro from Spagna station, which sits about a block away. But this property offers more than just a central location: Past guests praised the hotel's top-notch service and delectable breakfast buffet. However, while visitors said they found their accommodations to be comfortable and beautifully decorated, many noted that the standard room size is small for the price paid. 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.

    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.

    Situated alongside the Piazza Santa Maria Novella near the Duomo and the Battistero, the J.K. Place Firenze is as popular with tourists as it is with locals given its convenient location and swanky design. The boutique hotel's J.K. Lounge is a hot spot to mingle over an aperitif or enjoy a meal and martinis. After dinner, head downstairs to the lounge's Michele Bönan-designed white room, which features dramatic chromatic uplighting. When it comes time to rest, guests will be pleased to find that standard rooms include amenities like four-poster canopy beds, free Wi-Fi access, walk-in showers, complimentary minibars and LED TVs. Upgraded suites boast living areas, king-size beds, crystal chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the red-tiled roofs of Florence. However, several recent visitors said that the J.K. Classic rooms, the smallest accommodations available at the J.K. Place Firenze, felt a bit cramped. But, many noted that the hotel felt more like a stay at a luxurious home and appreciated the attentive service and staff who went out of their way to remember guests' personal preferences and names.

    Hotel Santa Caterina di Amalfi is as close to the Amalfi Coast as you can get. The 19th-century villa looks as if it was practically carved out of the cliffs it calls home. In addition to the excellent service, guests found the location indescribable and the property simply stunning. Charming, newly redecorated rooms each offer classic Italian interiors, including floors with antique, hand-painted tiling, plenty of natural light and views of the ocean or on-site gardens.

Select accommodations also come with perks like espresso machines and terraces with private plunge pools. Outside the rooms, guests can enjoy a spa treatment at the Beauty Corner; sip a cocktail at one of three bars; swim in the seasonal outdoor pool; or break a sweat in the 24-hour fitness center. Free shuttle service to and from area beaches is provided as well, and three restaurants are available on-site for meals. Les Bougainvillées – the only year-round option – serves Sicilian and international dishes; Il Giardino dei Limoni offers Mediterranean-inspired bites by the pool; and at the two Michelin star-awarded Principe Cerami, diners can savor gourmet Sicilian fare. Past lodgers praised Les Bougainvillées' breakfasts and The Principe Cerami's dinners, although some reported slow service and felt their meals were overpriced. But, members of The Leading Hotels of the World's Leaders Club loyalty program receive complimentary breakfast daily.
