Ho­tel icons and tak­ing new flights

ZOOMER Magazine - - CONTENTS -

AH, A RO­MAN HOL­I­DAY… scal­ing the Span­ish Steps, tak­ing in the spec­tac­u­lar view from the Villa Borgh­ese gar­dens, toss­ing a coin into the Trevi Foun­tain. Not far from th­ese iconic must-dos is the Ho­tel Eden. Part of the Dorch­ester Col­lec­tion of ho­tels, it is once again greeting guests af­ter a restora­tion project that im­bues its 19th-cen­tury roots with new mil­len­nium chic. Nat­u­ral light il­lu­mi­nates the build­ing’s his­toric de­tails that still hold a few sur­prises: a hid­den li­brary bar (left), for one – where the likes of Sig­mund Freud and Mar­garet Thatcher have en­joyed a tip­ple – along with all the mod cons we in­sist upon now: Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity, Bang & Olufsen sound sys­tem and Bot­tega Veneta ameni­ties. Don’t miss the panorama of the Eter­nal City from La Ter­razza, the ho­tel’s panoramic res­tau­rant. It may just give the Villa Borgh­ese a run for its money. Ciao, bel­lis­sima! www.dorch­ester­col­lec­­tel-eden —Vi­vian Vas­sos
