Via Vittorio E. Orlando 3, Rome
As I walked into this 1894 hotel, I could see why the King of Spain lived here for 10 years. The art, chandeliers, antiques, velvets, drapes, ornate ceilings and varied shades of maroon and gold – forget the kids, I was mesmerized! I, like its former guests Queen Elizabeth and Princess Grace Kelly, felt I was in a little palace, till it turned out that it was family-friendly too, or really as family-friendly as a hotel in Rome can be….
