A beautiful boutique guesthouse just a stone’s throw from the Porta del Popolo, Casa Montani has the inviting atmosphere of a family home. Located on the third floor of a luxurious 20th-century palazzo which has been in owner-manager Giuseppe Montani’s family since 1916, the rooms display a great deal of character and love. Family heirlooms sit within spaces designed by architect Liliana Sciacca to showcase local craftsmanship, joined by original artworks by Sicilian artist Beppe Butera.
With warm, attentive service led by Giuseppe himself, and a location close to many of Rome’s most recognisable cultural landmarks, Casa Montani is the perfect boutique retreat for intimate Roman holidays.
A delicious continental breakfast is served in your room every morning, so you can enjoy a lazy start to the day with breakfast in bed. There is no kitchen on site, but there are several excellent eateries close to the hotel. Dal Bolognese is particularly good for fine dining, while those looking for a more traditional Roman experience might enjoy Edy.
The five bedrooms are all individually decorated, and feature many family antiques that bring a great deal of character and personality. All rooms have wooden floors and king-sized beds, some feature works of Italian craftsmanship, such as bespoke, hand-carved Florentine headboards or desks created by a local Roman artisan. The majority of the rooms have views over the streets of Rome, although one has views over an inner courtyard.
The Porta del Popolo is directly across from the hotel, and the imposing Bernini-designed gateway makes for an appropriate first stop on any tour of Rome, as it was traditionally the main entrance to the city. The Borghese Gardens are just a short walk from the hotel, and make a great escape from the bustle of the city centre. Take a stroll along the wide pathways and landscaped gardens, or for a particularly romantic escapade take a boat out onto the lake and row to the Temple of Apollo, a 19th-century folly designed to look like an Ancient Roman temple. The Villa Borghese Gallery has some truly stunning works, including Caravaggio paintings and Bernini sculptures.
The helpful team are happy to help you get the most out of your visit, including arranging museum tickets or treatments in nearby spas.
