Hotels We Covet: La Russie in Rome, Italy ⇒ This amazing hotel is located in the heart of Rome, between the most picturesque piazzas of the city, Piazza di Spagna and Piazza del Popolo. Generous in size and decorated with feature accents inspired by the city’s antique history, this hotel was designed in the 19th century by great architect Giuseppe Valadier. Hotel La Russie is one of the Eternal City’s most prestigious luxury hotels. Today, CovetED will show you why is one of the World’s Best Hotels.
Rome, one of the most requested destinations for those who love history, the capital of an ancient empire that contributed to modern language, religion, politics, art, literature, architecture and engineering and so on. It is one of the most privileged cities with architectural patrimony and where the sense of place makes more sense than any other city in the world.
As we use to say in Rome, do as the Romans do, the Rocco Forte family took this concept of sense of place as their philosophy, and that’s what turns their hotel chain so unique. They started the company in 1996 and nowadays have 14 hotels all over the world, including in Italy, the UK, Belgium, Berlin, Germany, Russia, Saudi Arabia and China.
All of them are the result of a delicate balance between hard work and passion and the Hotel de Russie in Rome is no exception! In 1917, the French poet Jean Cocteau dubbed this hotel as the “Paradise on earth” and the accolade still stands today.
Their unforgettable concept involves us in the city concept and philosophy, promoting a unique sense of exclusivity and uniqueness.
Composed of several types of suites that provide unique moments, like the presidential and terrace suites that highlight warm colours combined with style and comfort. Generous in size and decorated with feature accents inspired by the city’s antique history, the elegant interiors include sculpture and bas relief, photography and vibrant cushions made with lavish Zimmer + Rohde fabric, and chic furnishings from Porada and Porta Romana.
Effortlessly blending classical influences and contemporary design, as envisioned by Olga Polizzi and architect Tommaso Ziffer, the five-star Hotel is comprised of 120 rooms and suites that exemplify luxurious Roman living and offer sweeping views of the historic city streets. Take, for example, the Valadier suite which is beautifully appointed and decorated in a contemporary yet classic style with breathtaking views.
The Picasso Suite was named after the celebrated artist who stayed there for several months in 1917. The Picasso Suite pays homage to its namesake through its expressive, elegant decor. It is composed of fine Italian furniture from Citterio and Meridiani.
The Popolo Suite has one of the most exclusive views in the city. It elegantly marries accents from Rome’s classical and contemporary heritage while antique wall reliefs and sculpture are displayed alongside a curated collection of bespoke rugs, mid-century furniture, and a colour palette that echoes Papal Rome.
However, one of the most sought-after suites is the Nijinsky suite that makes you feel right at home! It is both playful and refined. The stunning Carrara marble bathroom, adorned with Bisazza mosaics makes you feel like you are in a Roman bath.
As a whole, every detail has been carefully thought out! The sense of refinement and elegance are undoubtedly the points that best define the experience at Hotel de Russie.
