April 1st will sees the much anticipated reopening and unveiling of Hotel Eden, Dorchester Collection‘s iconic property in Rome, following an extensive 18-month restoration.
World-renowned architect and interior designers Bruno Moinard and Claire Betaille of 4BI & Associés, together with Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku from Jouin Manku, were commissioned to oversee the renovation, comprising 98 spacious guestrooms and suites, a dynamic food and drink concept and the hotel’s first urban spa and blow-dry bar.
Located in the heart of the old city of Rome, a short stroll from the legendary Spanish Steps and picturesque Villa Borghese, Hotel Eden will provide guests with a true Roman experience, enhanced by a breathtaking panorama across the Eternal City.
Formerly offering 121 rooms, the hotel’s reduced room and suites count ensures more expansive spaces for guests to relax. Moinard and Betaille, who were entrusted with the restoration of the lobby, rooms, suites and meeting rooms, designed the spaces to accentuate the beauty of natural light, emphasised further by the high ceilings and tall windows framing Rome’s skyline.
Spearheaded by award-winning executive chef Fabio Ciervo, Hotel Eden’s food and beverage offering has been carefully crafted to harmonise exceptional food with a healthy lifestyle.
The hotel’s fine-dining restaurant, La Terrazza, is located on the top floor and offers guests views across Rome with an innovative Mediterranean menu using high quality, fresh and seasonal produce.
Jouin Manku, responsible for the redesign of the restaurants and spa, draws on traditional Italian craftsmanship as inspiration for their design with a fresco glass wall taking centre stage.
Offering all day dining, Il Giardino Ristorante & Bar is an urban retreat from the city’s crowds. Playing on the natural assets of the hotel’s stunning views, Jouin Manku has designed a friendly atmosphere with an abstract ‘vertical garden’.
“We are delighted to reopen Hotel Eden and lead it into its next chapter,” says Luca Virgilio, general manager at Hotel Eden. “We look forward to welcoming guests and offering them the most memorable experience in a timeless destination.”
