At Boom, stay with Angelo, his son, their three cats … and countless famous actresses whose pictures grace the walls of the three rented rooms (named, respectively, Magnani, Loren, and Vitti). On the top floor of a century-old palazzo (no lift), it has retro crown-moulded ceilings, a vintage jukebox, and there's even a life-sized Marilyn Monroe cut-out in the kitchen. Although its location on the lush Janiculum hill is a hike from the main tourist sites, the view of Rome's skyline from the apartment's 250 square metres of terrace makes it more than worth the journey. • Via Dandolo 51, +39 06 869 05226, ilboom.it
