Plan your big Roman holiday with Hotel de Russie


Saudi Gazette

Hotel de Russie, part of Rocco Forte Hotels, is a luxury five-star hotel located in the heart of Rome. Planned by Giuseppe Valadier in 1814, The Hotel de Russie is part of Rocco Forte Hotels since 2000. It is situated between the Spanish Steps and Piazza del Popolo on the Via del Babuino; the hotel embraces fashion, art and culture from Via Margutta to via dei Condotti, Piazza di Spagna and Via Borgognona. The district is famous for being the setting of numerous films and novels. World-famous architect Tommaso Ziffer steered the interior refurbishment of the ancient building. Hotel de Russie has 121 bedrooms, a beautiful Secret Garden created by Valadier full of orange trees and antique roses; Le Jardin de Russie Restaurant with authentic Italian cuisine and Nijinsky Suite with an extensive private terrace, ideal for al fresco dining.

Olga Polizzi, Director of Design for Rocco Forte Hotels and sister of Sir Rocco Forte, redesigned the Valadier Suite among many others recently.

“For me, the Valadier Suite says Rome. I tried to continue the Roman feel of the hotel by furnishing the suite with Italian antiques, Roman statues, vibrant colours and furnishings from C&C Milano, who is quintessentially Italian,” Polizzi said. A palette of blues, greys and purples compliments bright oranges and greens brings life and a Roman flair to the rooms. Wallpaper has been used in a few rooms and suites, adding a new and decorative element with Fornasetti motifs and sylvan grey designs by Lewis & Wood. Each room is decorated with a mix of modern pieces and more traditional elements inspired by Roman history and adorned with vibrant cushions made from Zimmer + Rohde fabrics.

The hotel has a state-of-the-art gym and De Russie Spa, the ultimate urban retreat in the heart of Rome, with signature treatments, such as the Rocco Forte Rituals carried out with Forte Organics, bio-cosmetic line made in Italy and created exclusively for Rocco Forte Spas.
