Nudg­ing Pi­azza del Popolo and a leisurely 10-minute stroll from the Span­ish Steps, this his­toric 5-star prop­erty’s pre­vi­ous lives in­cluded a no­ble man­sion and the nerve cen­ter of Italy’s tele­vi­sion and ra­dio op­er­a­tions.

Fol­low­ing com­pre­hen­sive in­te­rior re­fur­bish­ment by ar­chi­tect Tom­maso Zif­fer and Rocco Forte Col­lec­tion de­signer, Olga Polizzi, Sir Rocco Forte’s sis­ter, it is now part of the Rocco Forte Col­lec­tion of 13 ho­tels and re­sorts. Ho­tel de Russie now com­prises 121 rooms in­clud­ing 33 suites of which four are sig­na­ture, with a new one to be opened later this year. The re­fur­bished restau­rant ‘Le Jardin de Russie’ serves break­fast, lunch and din­ner and opens through French doors into an out­stand­ing in­te­rior gar­den, a ver­ti­cal visual treat of palm and yew trees, or­ange groves and rose bushes ris­ing high up a slope to the Pin­cian Hill and ex­ten­sive Villa Borgh­ese gar­dens be­hind it. Fur­nish­ings are a mix of clas­sic and mod­ern, mar­ble and bronze busts, mir­rors with seashell or­na­men­ta­tion and cen­tury-old paint­ings. Leisure fa­cil­i­ties at Ho­tel de Russie in­clude a spa with six treat­ment rooms and a fully-equipped gym.
