Baglioni Hotel Regina

A taste of Rome’s brocaded brilliance
Ask someone from Baglioni Hotel Regina to define the aesthetic of the property and he might say something along the lines of “sophisticated elegance” or “classic sumptuousness.” That translates to timeless fabrics, original furnishings and Murano chandeliers that mesh in a wondrous way.

As you arrive at Baglioni Hotel Regina, you’re greeted by the well-dressed doorman and a statue of Neptune. The Roman god of the sea may never utter a word, but his presence near the wrought-iron staircase announces that the Italian Art Nouveau movement will proudly be on display at this 1904-built treasure.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • A lobby with marble from Sicily sits next to an eclectic lounge proudly sporting leopard-print chairs, and it all harmonizes.
  • From an enviable position at vias Veneto and Liguria, the Rome hotel allows you to see quaint cafés up and down the streets.
  • Though Baglioni Spa by Caschera Spa features just two massage rooms, a sauna, a Turkish bath and a Jacuzzi, designers were precise about their moves, filling spaces with dark brown woods, cream walls and stunning plant silhouettes.
  • If you were aiming to make your stay a once-in-a-lifetime experience, splurge on the Roman Penthouse from Milan-based interior design firm Rebosio and Spagnulo.
  • One of the area’s best bets for lunch or dinner is right on property — Brunello Lounge and Restaurant. 
The Rooms
  • Rooms range from the traditional, 269-square-foot superior to more art-deco-inspired, 645-square-foot suites — yet every lamp and gilded mirror fits fabulously.
  • In the Roman Penthouse, your senses are taken on a ride through sight (a massive TV screen looks like a mirror), smell (Acqua dell’Elba incense sticks) and feel (velvet-smooth couches). Three bedrooms dazzle in typical fashions (fine linens, brocaded pillows) and unexpected ones (upholstered closets).
  • Get one piece of clothing ironed gratis when you stay in a Junior Suite.
The Restaurants

  • Brunello Lounge and Restaurant sets a romantic vibe with dark-hued walls, black-and-white photos and Moroccan-influenced lamps.
  • A robust menu of Mediterranean flavors (codfish-stuffed ravioli, beef with Chianti white sauce or lamb loin with sautéed chicory) only heightens the restaurant’s mood.
  • After dinner, slide on over to the connecting lounge for a nightcap (or night starter, depending on when you come down from your room). Your eyes will be drawn to eclectic furniture and light fixtures, but after seeing the list of creative cocktails, you won’t stop gawking at the goings-on behind the bar.
