The Cavalieri has one drawback - its located 8 kilometres from the centre of Rome. However, in season, there are hourly, complimentary shuttles into the centre of the Eternal City which is of some consolation to hotel guests. Apart from that issue, the hotel is truly remarkable in every way. Firstly, it boasts the only 3 Michelin-starred restaurant in Rome – La Pergola – which has been part of the masterchef Heinz Beck’s empire since 1994. Then there are hundreds of amazing works of art dotted around the property including the Tiepolo’s triptych at reception and the Dollar series by Andy Warhol. 

The 370 rooms and suites are fantastic. Although the main building itself is of the 1960s – the interiors could be from the Palace of Versailles. They are outrageous – gold & gilt adorned bedrooms and marble-clad bathrooms with Ferregamo toiletries. The hotel sits in 15 acres of lush garden and the Grand Spa Club is one of the finest in Italy. For a fee – even for hotel guests – you have use of 4 swimming pools – including one for children. There is a superb set of treatment rooms, a sizeable fitness centre and tennis courts. The Cavalieri is more a city resort than a hotel and for frequent visitors to Rome, ideal.
