The arrival of Qcterme in Rome
The QC Termeroma held its inauguration last December after a series of structural interventions that had taken place over the past years. The new luxury Roman hotel is a 5 star structure that is nestled in a rich green area near Via Portuense, only minutes from Fiumicino Airport and with easy access to the Fiera di Roma. In this incredible location, history and innovations are ideally intertwined such as luxury and modern amenities along with a strong passion for traditions and heritage. The 50 rooms are large, luminous and elegant, each with views of the green surroundings and bathrooms which are particularly special as they are made up of gorgeous marbles from all around the world. The QC Termeroma is not exclusively open to its guests but is also available to the general public who is interested in rediscovering the ancient traditions of the Roman Baths. The SPA is located directly behind the reception and upon entering guests will receive a kit containing a lush bathrobe, slippers and a towel. A series of steps lead directly to what once was the ancient caciara (?) whose chimneys are still visible, these were once used for the desiccation of cheese. A large corridor then introduces guests to the heart of the SPA where a scene stealing bridge crosses over a pool with blade thin water falls on both sides. There are different access points that lead to an area with four hydraulic tubs, specialty saunas with different temperatures and humidity and a large marble Hammam. The frigidarium, the space dedicated to the hot-cool reactions, is made entirely in Cipollino marble, extracted directly from the island of Eubea in Greece. Tradition states that this particular type of marble decorated the Domus Patrizie of the 1st century B.C. Near the entrance there is also a large relaxation room with water beds, a staircase beyond this area brings guests to an different and warm relaxing space with suspended wicker seating in what once was the stables, as is intuitively deduced buy the presence of an original carriage. The public seems to really appreciate the outdoor wellness centre as well. The latter is distributed within an over 1000sqm park that can boast heated pools for the winter, hydraulic baths and a solarium. The structure also functions in the evenings with special formulas that can include an “bathrobe” aperitivo and access to the outdoor heated pool to 11pm.
