OWNER: Sir Rocco Forte
GENERAL MANAGER: Francesco Roccato
LOCATION: Located atop of the Spanish Steps on the iconic Via Sistina, the hotel is in the heart of the Eternal City. Ideally positioned to explore Rome by foot, the hotel is within walking distance from key shopping streets and central Roman landmarks. It also sits at the doorstep of the stunning green spaces of the Villa Borghese gardens.
HISTORY: Hotel de la Ville's history dates back to the eighteenth century when the building was used as apartments for European nobles who were travelling to Italy during the Grand Tour for cultural enlightenment. The building was later transformed into a hotel in the early 1920's and was then enlarged to its current structure in the mid 1900s under the management of the hotel group Intercontinental. Hotel de la Ville reopened its doors as a Rocco Forte property on May 23rd 2019 following a two year and half renovation started in 2017.
DESIGN: Architect Tommaso Ziffer, in collaboration with Olga Polizzi, Director of Design for Rocco Forte Hotels, was inspired by The Grand Tour of the 18th century when English and German nobles collected pieces of art during their cultural journeys to European cities. Using the backdrop of the timeless palazzo, Ziffer has recreated a contemporary retrospective of The Grand Tour by taking guests on a playful voyage of discovery. Working with local artisans, the lavishness of the 18th century is weaved boldly together and shown through the display of handmade wallpaper from local designers Rubelli and Dedar, rich Italian fabrics and historic tapestries from Zardi & Zardi. The hotel features 104 well-appointed rooms and suites are amongst the most elegant and spacious in Rome, while the signature suites offer unrivalled panoramic views of the city from their large terraces.
ACCOMODATION: 89 rooms and 15 suites including 3 signature suites with terraces offering stunning views of the eternal city
GUEST ROOMS: The 104 rooms and suites are filled with playful, contemporary furniture and sumptuous fabrics that draw influence from the era of the Grand Tour and the memories that would have been collected during the journey. With traditional wooden floors, elegant marble bathrooms and wonderful views over via Sistina and the rooftops of the Eternal City and the inner courtyard.
CANOVA SUITE: Named for Antonio Canova, the celebrated Neoclassical sculptor, the Canova Suite is one of the top suites at Hotel de la Ville. Truly living up to its namesake, the suite expertly blends high art and lavish style to elegant effect. Serene and sophisticated, the cool wheat shades in the separate living areas, from the sitting room to the bedroom, are offset by deeper, more luxuriant tones in the soft furnishings and lavishly punctuated with a curated collection of objets d’art. The well-appointed outdoor terrace, meanwhile, offers panoramic views of Rome and the opportunity to enjoy aperitivo while looking out over the sunset-lit rooftops of the Eternal City. For extra pampering, the lavish marble bathroom is outfitted with exclusive Irene Forte Skincare products, made with handpicked Sicilian botanicals, while your own private walk-in wardrobe adds a little extra glamour to dressing for dinner.
ROMA SUITE: Furnished with a curated collection of contemporary and vintage pieces, as well as stylish objets d’art, the Roma Suite effortlessly evokes classic Roman glamour. The suite features a stylish sitting room, a generous marble bathroom outfitted with our exclusive Irene Forte Skincare products, and a serene bedroom draped in opulent textiles, with a sumptuously comfortable super king-sized bed in pride of place. Ideal for families and larger groups, our Roma Suite has a sofa bed that can sleep one adult or one child. Step out onto the terrace — one of two that wrap around the suite — and take in the stunning views out over our peaceful courtyard, Via Sistina, and the stunning panorama of Rome beyond.
SUITE DE LA VILLE: The stunning Suite de la Ville is Hotel De La Ville’s most spectacular accommodation, offering sublime comfort and stylish surrounds. Take the private elevator up to the suite and step through the doors, taking in the artwork and curated collection of contemporary and antique furniture, the classic tomes, and lavish textiles as you walk through the sitting room, study, and bedroom. With a private dining room, guest bathroom, and two beautiful outdoor terraces that offer stunning panoramic views out over Rome, the Suite de la Ville is ideal for glamorous entertaining. For added decadence, the suite can also be connected with rooms on the seventh floor to create a generous multi-bedroom apartment for your guests. As the night draws to a close, step into the opulent embrace of your marble bathroom to relax and unwind, enjoying the heady aromas of Sicilian botanicals in the Irene Forte Skincare products, before retiring to your sumptuous super king-sized bed for a night of deep and restful sleep.
