“The location of the Hotel de Russie, between the Spanish Steps and the Piazza del Popolo, means that you have all of Rome on your doorstep, yet the hotel manages to make you feel like you’re staying in a country retreat. We recommend savouring an aperitivo in the courtyard after a long day of shopping and sightseeing. Sit back glowing from your adventures and do some serious people watching. You’ll find the atmosphere changes in the evening as it becomes a hive for lively locals.”
Located between Piazza di Spagna and Piazza del Popolo, Hotel de Russie is one of the Eternal City’s most prestigious luxury hotels. An enduring favourite of artists and writers, stars and politicians, Hotel de Russie was dubbed “paradise on earth” by French poet Jean Cocteau in 1917, and the accolade still stands today.
There are 122 rooms, including 33 suites, four of which have their own private terraces. Many rooms have views either of the hotel’s gardens or the Piazza del Popolo.
The classic Italian menu in the hotel’s restaurant, the Jardin de Russie, is extremely popular with locals as well as hotel guests, particularly in the summer when its tables are dotted around the garden, as well as on the terrace. The Stravinskij Bar is the idea spot to retire to for an afternoon tea or cocktails, either inside or at tables spilling out onto Piazzetta Valadier.
There is also a marine hydropool, steam rooms, and six spa treatment rooms.
