Monti doesn’t have many full-service hotels—at least, not yet. The Duca d’Alba is right on one of the main drags, with all the nightlife and authentic dining you’ll need on your doorstep. Rooms in the main building are cozy (read: small) and contemporary, with modern furniture and gadgetry, but even smaller bathrooms. The annex rooms next door have a palazzo character, with terra-cotta tiled floors, oak and cherry wood furniture, and more space; street-facing rooms are soundproofed. Those on the second floor are the brightest. Tip: If you offer to pay in cash, you’ll receive a 12% discount.
