Luxury hotel in Rome: Spanish Royal Suite

Are you searching for a luxury hotel in Rome? The city is one of the favorite destinations for worldwide tourists, but there are a lot of ways to see the attractions. The ancient city is the perfect place to live the luxury, starting from the accommodation. The center of Rome is the Coliseum, but few steps far there is the neighborhood of fashion and of the most known brands, around Via Condotti. The area is famous especially because of Spanish Steps. This location is perfect for a luxury hotel in Rome.

The popular stairs, the church on the top and the Fontana della Barcaccia in the square are the most photographed attractions of the Spanish Steps from all the tourists in Rome. Some of them have the chance also to sleep close to the monuments, choosing among hotel, B&B or flats. But luxury in Rome is something special to try. Very few hundreds of meters from the fountain there is an old anonymous building that host one of the luxury hotel in Rome. It is not big but full of comfort and impeccable service.

The luxury hotel in Rome

I have been at the Spagna Royal Suite hotel, in Via Mario De’ Fiori 3. It’s a 4 star, but it has nothing to envy to 5 stars accommodation. The furniture and the interiors are opulent but made with modern and smart style. All the rooms are very different and with peculiarities that made this hotel unique, like the Deluxe with the bathtub made as a big woman shoe with a high heel.

There is a Junior Suite, the biggest room of the structure, that is a symbol of classical modern elegance. Inside there are frescos, a corner with a champagne selection and Caffè Nespresso machine. The best part, anyway, is the wellness area inside the room, with a bathtub with hydromassage Teuco, a wall for fitness and the Kinesis Technogym. A paradise for relaxation.

The best room is the Presidential Suite, in the dependence of Via Condotti, exactly in front of Spanish Steps. The luxury of the flat is really exclusive. The three bedrooms with King size beds are connected. Also, there is the use of the event room to welcome some visitors by the guests or simply to see the reunited family during the stay. 400 square meters of comfort and elegance. The experience is unique.

My experience

Among the top rooms of Spagna Royal Suite, I reserved the Royal Suite, situated in the dependence in Via Frattina. It’s a big flat, with the main bedroom, very big with street view windows. In the same room, there is access to the main bathroom. Inside there are a statue, a double shower, and a flat-screen TV. Next, to the bedroom, there is the living room with sofabed and the bigger flat screen TV. A big wardrobe is in the bedroom and in the corridor as well. Then there is the second bathroom, smaller but with a shower, and a small kitchen. It’s how to feel at home.

Spagna Royal Suite is part of the luxury brand Le Reve de Naim, a guarantee for the lovers of exclusivity. The hospitality by them is like a trip in a familiar environment dominated by perfection. That’s why I am completely satisfied with my stay. Highly recommended for who wants to visit Rome and enjoy the stay. This luxury hotel in Rome offers peace and it is discrete. The professional staff ready to answer to any need. The breakfast served in the dining room it is not huge in terms of variety, but the quality is high. Elegance and luxury are the keywords for this hotel, so you can really feel like a king.

Happy 2019 from Prague

My dears, how did you start the New Year? I want to wish again Happy 2019! From Prague. I am really happy to be here, but I am a bit tired. Maybe many of you can understand me. When you are abroad for the New Year’s Eve you don’t go to sleep early and you enjoy the party…or maybe more than one. I am not able now to tell you all what I want about the city so some other posts will follow this one these days. I will write about the place and the accommodation.

With this article, I want to refresh my wishes for a happy 2019 and to show you a few pictures of fireworks. The cruise on the river was fabulous and also the walk in the city to go to the concert in the main square and in the clubs. I saw Prague in the summertime, but now during the new year celebration is completely different. It is funny and there are a lot of people of all ages coming from all over the world.

Happy 2019: fireworks and more

There are magnificent buildings very well enlighted and during the winter holidays, the lights have different colors. Then the atmosphere is unique, very well combined between the tradition and the international soul that comes from visitors. The river looks like a magic touch. Yes, because of the water that reflects the lights, the buildings, and the fireworks. It was a good start to have a happy 2019!

I love fireworks, but I can say that in Prague they did an amazing job. The show was really beautiful. This brief break with my friends was really a great idea, maybe because it wasn’t mine… 😮 I have a lot of new energy for the new year. Also for the blog, so I want to put more strength to work online to improve my posts and to give you new cool articles.

My dears, watch this very short video and stay tuned for other news from Prague. Happy 2019!

Fireworks in Prague. Happy 2019!

Apple fountain in Milan

Are you planning to go to Milan? Well, there is a curious place you should visit. Insert in your tour the Apple fountain. It is made by the famous American tech brand in the capital of fashion. Under the fountain, they have the shop. Are you thinking of a strange apple from where the water comes out? No, the company from Cupertino made something different. Elegant and cool.

Yes, they realized a special shop in the center of the city. In Piazza Liberty, a few steps from Duomo on the way to go to San Babila. Apple creates a very big shop and they realized an amazing fountain. The location is cool and the structure offers a curious experience. You can pass easily under it when you enter the shop. It doesn’t matter if you are an Apple fan or not, I recommend you a visit. Because it will leave you speechless.

It became in a few weeks one of the most famous and most photographed attractions of the city. Under the fountain there are stairs, so you can walk under the water and see the show. The glass will protect you, so you will be safe from water. It is so curious. You won’t need much time to see it and since it is closed to the cathedral, you will see it on the way.

The fountain of Apple

They opened the fountain and the shop at the end of July 2018. On the street, there is nothing more than this waterfall with the Apple logo on the window. The stairs to go down to the underground shop. On one side the stairs are under the water, on the other side, the stairs are like an amphitheater. The shop is 20 meters under the ground. and it is very big.

Anyway, what I like is the fountain they realized. It is something quite innovative in Milan and also cool. I am not going to write more and I let you see the pictures I took in the last days. I did a very short video uniting all of them to show you this curious fountain.  It can be part of the curiosities of Milan. What Apple made deserve to be seen, so while you walk around the cathedral in the city, have a look. It takes a few minutes.

I did a short video including my pictures and some slides with a few lines: the written curiosities. When I visit a place I always try to get something more. I mean that I like to explore my destination, in each corner. To be a tourist who goes just in front of the main attractions is not part of me.
