Hotel de Russie, a Rocco Forte Hotel

The Hotel de Russie is the place to be seen in Rome. In the heart of the hotel is a beautiful piazza, a secret garden, where many Romans come to enjoy an aperitivo. This gives the hotel a wonderful cosmopolitan and buzzing atmosphere.

Rome, Italy
Hotel de Russie a Rocco Forte Hotel
  • The Hotel de Russie occupies a fantastic location between the Piazza del Popolo and the Spanish steps, perfect for culture vultures and shopaholics alike

  • The Stravinskij Bar and Le Jardin restaurant are two of the hottest spots in town where you can dine on Italian classics refined such as veal Milanese and the signature Stravinskij Spritz

  • The property boasts a spa with hydro pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and gym, as well as five treatment rooms featuring Irene Forte's handmade skincare products

  • One of the standout features of this property are without doubt the stunning terraced gardens - there is a reason why Jean Cocteau dubbed the hotel 'paradise on earth' 

Ideally located between the Piazza del Popolo and the Spanish steps, Hotel de Russie has a to-die-for location coupled with an inimitable style. This allows it to appeal to both couples looking for a romantic weekend hideaway and families charmed by its central location and pretty gardens.

French poet Jean Cocteau described the hotel as “paradise on earth" and it's easy to see why. Transformed by Sir Rocco Forte into one of the city's most stylish hotels, the 18th century terraced gardens are still in evidence but are now coupled with a contemporary chic design.

The two-Michelin-star chef in residence at Le Jardin de Russie creates Mediterranean dishes and is a popular place for both residents and locals alike. Afternoon tea is served in the garden while a fantastic cocktail list makes the bar a particularly tempting option for evening drinks. A house specialty is the De Russie Martini served with caviar - a nod to the hotel’s 19th-century clientele who would escape cold Russian winters for Rome’s warmer climate.

As with all of the Rocco Forte properties, the rooms are tastefully designed with muted tones and splashes of bright accessories. Some bedrooms have a beautiful view of the square and the Rome skyline. The Vatican City, with St Peter's and the Sistine Chapel, is within easy reach, while Piazza Navona and the Trevi Fountain are just a short walk away.

The hotel also has an extensive health club and spa with a hydropool, Jacuzzi, sauna, Turkish steam bath, beauty treatments and gym.
