Harriet, Kate L, Victoria and Lucy G are here to help give you the inside track.

Above the refined Salvatore Ferragamo store near the Spanish Steps, 14 luxury suites, reflecting classic 50s style and splendour, are dedicated to providing discreet services in a personal setting. Handmade leather and linen finishes and marble bathrooms add to the personality of the suites.

Gourmet meals are served on the rooftop terrace overlooking the Trinita de Monte, or by room service if preferred. Kitchenettes are provided in all suites, although if Italian cooking is not a personal strength a chef can come in to instruct (read: do all the hard work).

On top of cookery lessons, the onsite 'Lifestyle Team' are fully equipped with the contacts and knowledge to organise premium excursions in Rome and Tuscany, from tailor made city tours, led by an art historian or archaeologist, and personal shopping guides to Ferrari or Vespa hire.

Why we love it
