This atmospheric hotel encompasses 16th- and 18th-century mansions surrounding courtyards planted with orange trees. The main patio features a glass floor that displays original Roman ruins 14 feet below ground. All 53 guest accommodations feature a minimalist décor, terra-cotta tiles, velvet headboards and original wall paintings. Most of the eight Junior Suites include reading areas. The excellent Arbequina Restaurant, overseen by chef Javi Moreno, serves a prix fixe menu at dinner that combines ingredients and cooking styles from Peru, Mexico, Vietnam, Japan and Thailand. The results are unique and delicious. Other amenities include a full-service spa with underground Roman baths, a casual bar and an outdoor swimming pool set in an orange grove flanked by Roman columns and a tapas bar open from April to October.
Deluxe Room, $400; Junior Suite, $680.
