Leon’s Place is a well-known design boutique hotel set within a historical building renovated by distinguished architects. On our most recent stay, we enjoyed being in this less touristic neighborhood yet still quite close to many of the city’s attractions. Piazza della Republica and surroundings, or Villa Borghese, are within a 10-minute walk. The interiors have a modern appeal, with a trendy atmosphere and fashionable furnishings and decoration, a scheme continued in the comfortable bedrooms. Some of the accommodations on the 2nd floor face a patio accessed by street level steps. Should this not appeal to you, request rooms on higher floors. The breakfast is delicious and well catered, and overall the staff is very friendly. Nearby you will find family run restaurants and gelaterias. A stay at the Leon’s will be an agreeable experience.
