Hotel Splendido Portofino Italy
The Ligurian fishing village of Portofino is a once-in-a-lifetime sort of trip for most, so why restrict yourself to one spot? Belmond Hotel Splendido offer both cliffside and village-center rooms — ideal for those allergic to commitment.
As above, so below. The ancient term finds new meaning at the dualistic property of Belmond Hotel Splendido. Set in and around the old fishing village of Portofino, the hotel offers a choice: Splendido Mare, an intimate bayside grouping of rooms directly in the village center, or the larger cliffside Hotel Splendido overlooking the bay and its glamorous yachts.
A 19th-century palace overlooking the Villa Borghese gardens, Hotel Splendide Royal is elaborately decorated in ornate Baroque style. Close to the Spanish Steps and the boutiques of Via dei Condotti, this impressive hotel has one of the best restaurants in Rome.
Sumptuously decorated with marble floors, Murano glass chandeliers, gilt mirrors, oil paintings and a domed skylight in the lobby, everything here makes an immediate visual impact. Many of the rooms have terraces with sweeping city views.
Discover the delights of the Borghese Gardens, dotted with fountains and statues. Then visit the Borghese Gallery to admire the magnificent art collection including paintings by Caravaggio and Canova. Be sure to dine at the Hotel Splendide’s, Mirabelle Restaurant, with its superb views over Rome.
Hotel Splendido’s 64 rooms and suites are furnished with luxury and refinement. Guests can enjoy 24-hour room service, and the La Terrazza restaurant beckons with indoor and al fresco Italian dining. Or enjoy a casual lunch on the deck between dips in the pool.
