For history and atmosphere, it’s hard to beat a place that’s been hosting wayfarers since 1467, with past guests including Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, as well as at least one Hapsburg king. Rooms are decorated in lavish period decor, with lots of brocade drapery, fine fabrics, and classic furniture. Each room comes equipped with air-conditioning and satellite TV, and some feature views of the Pantheon. Suites offer separate bedrooms and Jacuzzi tubs.
