A stone’s throw from the Villa Borghese gardens and historic landmarks including Via Veneto and the Spanish Steps, Aldrovandi Villa Borghese is located in an upscale residential neighbourhood. In the heart of an extraordinary city, the hotel is in every sense an urban resort.
Housed in a 19th century villa, formerly a convent, the hotel offers palatial splendour at every turn. Marble and parquetry abound to a grandiose effect, while an atmosphere rich in history and tradition is felt throughout. A one-time religious institution for titled
ladies – previously known as the Istituto Cabrini – this building has played host to European aristocracy, international diplomats and politicians, and its noble origins have been respectfully preserved.
From a stylish range of rooms and suites, each space is a celebration of traditional Italian style, with stunning views of Villa Aldrovandi’s exotic private gardens or the Villa Borghese park. Mediterranean hospitality is standard with the hotel’s highly personalised service, from the moment guests are warmly welcomed into the grand entrance.
Sprawled across the site of an ancient monastery, argos in Cappadocia is a gateway to another time.
The hotel emerges from a 2000-year-old historical network of ancient ruins, caves and underground tunnels, all lovingly restored by visionary owner Gökşin Ilıcalı, and in consultation with master architect Turgut Cansever over a period of 20 years.

Literally carved from caves, imaginative rooms and suites are sprinkled through seven revived mansions and demonstrate an excellency in craftsmanship. Decorative touches, such as Turkish carpets, adorn each space, while artifacts sit cradled in rustic alcoves and capture the essence of this distinct Mediterranean heritage.

Framed by arches, vaults and columns, the building is reminiscent of an 18th century Neapolitan palazzo. Yet
in a unique twist, a cool white Mediterranean aesthetic welcomes to each space, with marble and mirror mingling to impart an ever-present grace to stay. Light and airy interiors bring life to ancient roots in stylish rooms and art-themed suites lined with tributes to the work of Mirò, Magritte and Warhol. The reverence for contemporary art continues in The White Museum, which houses pieces by De Chirico, Keith Haring, and Pomodoro, amongst others.
