“I had always heard that the Hassler was THE hotel in Rome but, frankly, never even noticed it during several visits to the Eternal City. When I eventually walked through its doors in 2004 and met its charismatic owner, Roberto Wirth, I got it instantly. However great others may be, none has the effortless patrician-ness and simple class of the Hassler.”
Opened in 1893 at the top of the Spanish Step, Hotel Hassler Roma is owned by Roberto E. Wirth, the fifth generation of a famous Swiss family of hoteliers. Considered Rome’s most distinguished and celebrated hotel, it is the Roman home-from-home of celebrities and royalty. The rooms are gorgeous, and the courtyard garden has the tranquility of a countryside retreat in the heart of Rome. It was in the 1950’s that Hotel Hassler Roma’s rooftop restaurant set a new standard for travelers’ dining; the rooftop restaurant was reborn in 2006 under the name, “Imàgo.” Hotel Hassler Roma is a member of Leading Hotels of the World.
