Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Originally designed as a convent at the end of the 17th century by the famous architect Francesco Borromini, VOI Donna Camilla Savelli Hotel has been lovingly converted into a beautiful hotel without changing its original features. The vaulted frescoed ceilings, winding travertine stairwells, chequered flagstone floors, huge windows and the Baroque church on the hotel's site are some of these features, making this calm oasis in the heart of Rome such a magical place. The building is furnished with antiques and oil paintings, some of which date back to the 17th and 18th centuries.

The hotel is located in charming neighbourhood of Trastevere on the west bank of the River Tiber. This authentic area of Rome sits just south of Vatican City and is filled with bustling bars and local restaurants. With a bus stop just outside and a tram stop five minutes away it is easy to explore the city's main attractions. The Sistine Chapel is only two kilometers away and the Colosseum is three kilometers from the hotel. The roof terrace has superb panoramic views over the city that can be enjoyed while sipping on a glass of wine or a cocktail. Enjoy peaceful walks in the hotel's beautiful garden that houses a baroque fountain, a small oasis amidst this chic district of Rome.

Rome

The capital city of Rome is Italy’s masterwork. You can marvel at the Colosseum, Vatican City and Roman Forum with just 48 hours in the city, thanks to a UNESCO-listed historic centre with a roll call of millennia-old ruins and soaring domes.

Away from the well-worn paths, Rome has plenty of surprises up its sleeve. Dive into tangled medieval neighbourhoods like Trastevere for narrow trattoria-lined streets and hidden chapels.

And just when you think you’ve seen it all, the city changes. An ever-changing flow of new restaurants, art exhibitions and festivals means that there’s always an excuse to revisit to Rome.

Inghams operate a telephone Rep service in Rome.
