Rome Cavalieri Waldorf Astoria
By Lena Harizopoulos
On the occasion of Saint Peter & Paul, the 2 patron saints of Rome last week, I bring you one of my all time classic early summer escapes in Rome, the Rome Cavalieri Waldorf Astoria.
The Rome Cavalieri has been an institution of a hotel for ages in Rome, located further north away from the hustle of the centro storico – this is an ideal spot for a “summer in the city” weekend.
Famous for its very people-watching pool, its 3 Michelin awarded Chef Heinz Beck at the rooftop Pergola restaurant, its very good spa and its very popular with the locals sports club.
An ex Hilton, now the 1st European Waldorf Astoria, Rome Cavalier prides its self for its art collection and is the perfect place for those who are after old-school luxury and décor.
You will love its gardens, the tennis courts behind the outdoor pool, the lazy days chilling in the sun after a spa treatment and its indoor cozy swimming pool next to the sports club
Concerning now your hotel-pool attire, forget your boho Formentera & flowy Mykonos outfits and Go for glam Italian – style one piece, let your hair loose add on some fancy colourful jewels and your most impressive beach hat or even a nice Borsalino and you are all set.
