Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese will re-open this July, unveiling extensive renovations by Jean-Philippe Nuel.
The hotel occupies a former 19th Century Roman palazzo, and is situated on a quiet street in the centre of Rome, just moments from some of the city’s best known cultural landmarks.
Aside from 78 well-appointed rooms and suites, a new fitness centre and three large event rooms, Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese will also be home to elegant rooftop lounge and restaurant, Settimo.
Offering panoramic views overlooking the picturesque Villa Borghese gardens and St. Peter’s Basilica, Settimo is adorned with eclectic furnishings and lush green interiors.
Paying respect to local mastery and heritage, while highlighting the personality of the hotel’s Executive Chef, Guiseppe D’Alessio, signature dishes will incorporate traditional Roman culinary styles such as ‘cucina povera’ and ‘Tripolina’.
Jean Philippe Nuel’s chic redesign will combine the heritage and classicism of ‘La Dolce Vita’, with the modernism and design of French ‘art de vivre’. The hotel entrance will feature an iconic display of chromatic counterpoints and vibrant colours, creating a modern lounge with a classical feel. Guest rooms will also exhibit an iridescent ceiling masterpiece, creating the illusion of the bright sky above.
