La Scelta di Goethe Suites puts the L in luxury. Moments from where Italian movie director Federico Fellini once lived, and minutes from the Spanish steps, this refined residence houses just two fourth-floor suites, the ‘Villa Medici’ and the ‘Trinita dei Monti’, one of which has a rooftop hot tub
This is the ‘la dolce vita’ side of town, the Campo Marzo district, where everyone and everything exudes elegance. The Spanish Steps, via Babuino and via Condotti are all three blocks away. The Borghese park is a 10-minute walk away. You can also walk three minutes to via Margutta, where most of Roman Holiday was filmed. Be sure to check out the legendary Art Deco bar Rosati at Piazza del Popolo (one-minute away), plus both the nearby Goethe and the John Keats and Shelley museums.
Old worldly elegance, brown leather chesterfields, 17th-century art in gilded frames, antiques and a working fireplace set the mood. There is an inviting library, with a delightful mix of Italian architecture books and works by Goethe and Dante, as well as a writing bureau by the window, evoking the days of the Grand Tour. Upon arrival, you are welcomed by manager Daniel who makes you feel immediately at home, with a bottle of wine or bubbly.
