A classic hotel designed by Mario Loreti in 1938, sitting on the highest of Rome's seven hills. The Hotel Mediterraneo is one of the city's best examples of Art Deco, with ten floors of classic rationalism that was the style of the 1930's interior design, featuring marble staircases, and intricate wood paneling and inlays throughout the public areas of the hotel. Rooms and suites at this unique hotel are equally memorable, featuring the original 1940's furnishing, complimented by all the amenities of a modern, four-star hotel. Dining at the Mediterraneo deserves a special mention, with their in-house restaurant, Ristorante 21, decorated with antique paintings, and serving traditional Italian cuisine in a warm, elegant ambience. Putting aside the delights of the hotel, all the attractions of Rome are easily visited, and the friendly hotel staff will be happy to offer information and directions.
