Palazzo Naiadi The Dedica Anthology, Roma
A Palace for all Seasons
What it is
A 238-room Neoclassical retreat set over ancient Roman baths, with a modern Roman outdoor pool.
What it isn't
Stuffy. Note the Asian-inspired day spa with ayurvedic treatments galore and bubbling champagne bar in the lobby.
What we think
In a centuries-old city, staying in a new build is tantamount to sacrilege. This 18th century palace turned hotel does the Eternal City justice, with timeless touches in the rooms Caesar himself would appreciate (carved mahogany furniture; flowing draperies). Infamous Italian hospitality includes 24-hour room service and evening turn-down; other amenities include an Old World Europe marble bathroom (yes, that’s your private bidet), a robe and slippers for padding around the palace a la Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, and gratis wifi.
You're here because
You love a rooftop pool, but one looking over the Rome skyline? That’s heaven.
In the heat of summer, Rome feels like a Fellini movie sprung to life—especially as you kick back negronis overlooking the terracotta roofs from the hotel’s Posh Bar and Sun Terrace. La Dolce Vita, indeed.
Two blocks from the Roma Termini train station, within a quick walk of the landscaped, sculpture-stocked gardens at Giardini del Quirinale.
