Hotel Lord Byron, member of The Leading Hotels of the World, Ltd. as well as the American Express Platinum Program's Fine Hotels & Resorts, is undoubtedly one of the Eternal City's most prized boutique hotels. The Lord Byron offers Guests both the luxury of a 5-star hotel and charm of a private manor. It virtually borders the magnificent Villa Borghese Park, thereby granting discerned travellers a most serene ambience, atypical of the otherwise vivacious city. Both the Spanish Steps and Via Veneto areas may be reached with a taxi in under ten minutes, or alternatively, on foot by a leisurely stroll through the park. At one time, a Patrician villa, the property today is a newly renovated bliss. It presents 32 guestrooms, equipped with all of the comforts of modern amenities, deluxe marble bathrooms and in most instances a balcony and/or terrace. Guests may enjoy the plush public areas which showcase the Italian knack for design and/or relax over a drink at the clubroom-like atmosphere created at the "Il Salotto" Lounge & Wine Bar. For guests wishing to sample the peninsula's beloved authentic flavours, the hotel recommends the highly acclaimed "SAPORI del Lord Byron" restaurant. The hotel staff is trained to anticipate every guest's whim.
