Where: Hotel Eden, Rome
The Lowdown: Perched above the centro storico of Rome, the Hotel Eden is famous for its magnificent views of St Peter’s dome. The hotel is exclusively set between Borghese Gardens and Via Veneto, only a 10-minute walk from Piazza di Spagna. All roads from the hotel lead to Rome’s wonders. Recently renovated, the elegant gold and cream interiors with marble floors perfectly reflect Rome’s glorious historic past.
Stylish Eats: Celebrated for its panoramic views over the ancient city, La Terrazza restaurant offers a true culinary experience. Award-winning executive chef Fabio Ciervo carefully chooses seasonal and regional ingredients and transforms every dish into a work of art. If you are in the mood for a more cosy atmosphere, Il Giardino is open from breakfast until midnight and offers a great selection of our favorite Italian dishes such as pasta, pizza, and Venetian-style tapas cicheti. For a more relaxing experience, head to La Libreria lounge to enjoy light snacks, salads, and afternoon tea while reading your favorite book. Rome’s best-kept secret is probably La Libreria’s Secret Bar. Hidden behind mirrored doors, seek it and you shall find it.
Suite Talk: Space, light, and elegance are the essence of the freshly renovated rooms. The Hotel Eden reduced its room count in order to create more space for every guest. Reminiscent of an elegant private Italian home, all rooms and suites are decorated with classic Italian furnishings. High ceilings and tall windows ensure plenty of natural light, complementing the neutral color palette of the rooms. Put on the fluffy Pedersoli 100% cotton bathrobe and enter the spacious marble and gold bathroom. It features a walk-in rain shower and soaking tub with luxurious Bottega Veneta amenities.
Insider’s Tip: After wandering all day through the narrow streets of Rome, escape to the Eden Spa to unwind. With only three suites, including two luxury private spa suites and a couple’s suite, the Eden Spa is a true private sanctuary. Pamper yourself with the signature Sonya Dakar Detox Volcano Facial to purify and restore your skin. If you are traveling during summer, head to the historic Roma Polo Club for a refreshing swim. From beginning of July to mid-September, Hotel Eden partners with Roma Polo Club to offer its guests full access to the beautiful outdoor swimming pool and club house.
Vogue Verdict: Recently reborn, the real Roman luxury of Hotel Eden is found in the staff who define legendary Italian hospitality.
