LOCATION:  Situated beside the Spanish Steps and Piazza del Popolo, Hotel de Russie sits on Rome’s fashionable Via del Babuino, short walk away from the most elegant shopping streets of the city and Rome’s key attractions.
HISTORY: Hotel de Russie owes its name to the many members of the Russian Imperial House and the Russian Romantic painters who selected the hotel as their location of choice for their stay in the Eternal City. The hotel is a fascinating mix of old and new, with modern design that respects the classical architecture of the building. French poet Jean Cocteau described our hotel as “paradise on earth” in 1917. Today, it’s the finest of all the 5-star hotels in Rome and one of the city’s greatest treasures.
INTERIOR AND RENOVATION: Designed by world-famous architect Tommaso Ziffer and Olga Polizzi, the 120-bedroom Hotel de Russie offers a haven of tranquility and greenery in the heart of the city.
                                                             
The rooms and suites exemplify luxurious Roman living and are individually decorated with feature accents inspired by the city’s antique history. The elegant interiors include sculpture and bas relief, photography, vibrant cushions, and chic furnishings. Bringing the outside in, stunning botanically-inspired wallpaper from Lewis & Wood echoes the timeless splendour of our Secret Garden.
                                               
A palette of blues, greys and purples compliments bright oranges and greens bringing a sense of vibrancy and Roman flair to the rooms.
 
The Nijinskij Suite – Inspired by the character and elegance of Russian dancer and choreographer Vaslav Nijinsky, Hotel de Russie’s most prestigious and spacious suite has been restyled to offer guests an unrivalled luxury stay in Rome. The beauty, elegance and harmony that filled the dancer’s entire life has influenced the vision of Olga Polizzi, Director of Design of Rocco Forte Hotels, in the suite’s renovation works. The furniture is a mix of contemporary and traditional pieces from Italian brands with luxurious sofas from Meridiani, chairs by B&B and beautifully decorated vases by Carlo Moretti. Adding to the sumptuousness is the generously-sized outdoor terrace that luxuriates along the length of the suite, outfitted with teak tables and chaise longues, and a fabulous collection of Mediterranean botanicals.
ReLaunch date: September 2017
 
The Valadier Suite - Designed by Olga Polizzi, the 77sqm Valadier Suite is beautifully appointed and decorated in a contemporary yet classic style.   
Named after the famous Italian architect, Giuseppe Valadier, the suite has floor-to-ceiling windows and three French balconies overlooking the hotel’s secret garden and Pincio hill. A cheerful yellow and green colour palette complements the suite’s breathtaking views, while stylish sliding doors separate the spacious sitting room and dining area from the bedroom, which has a walk-in wardrobe with a dressing-table. The opulent marble bathroom has a separate bathtub, double shower and double wash basins, and the suite also has its own powder room.
Launch date: May 2018
