Otivm hotel (4 stars)

Otivm hotel: I first discovered the Otium hotel thanks to photos of their stunning rooftop terrace and this is still a big reason why I love this romantic hotel in Rome!

Located right in the center of the city, around the corner from Piazza Venezia and the Campidoglio, two of the best places to be in Rome at night for views and atmosphere, Hotel Otivm has nice cozy rooms with modern decor, yet manages to maintain the charm of the historic building it occupies. A perfect mix.

For a really special stay, request a room with a balcony. We did and it truly felt like being in a movie: a private corner of heaven with one of the best views over Rome just for us!
