18th-century architecture, contemporary luxury and five-star service in the heart of Rome
Rocco Forte’s luxurious hotels are landmarks directly inspired by their location. For Hotel De La Ville, an 18th century building located at the top of the Spanish Steps, this means lavish textiles and careful attention to artistic detail. Hotel De La Ville is one of two Rocco Forte hotels in Rome, the other being Hotel De Russie near Piazza del Popolo. Each of the hotel’s 104 rooms, designed with elegancy in mind, is complete with contemporary furniture, timeless wall hangings, hard wood floors, and chic marble bathrooms. It is the personal touch, including the complimentary skincare products and in-room bars, that makes staying at this hotel a truly luxurious experience.
Hotel De La Ville’s style is drawn from the Grand Tour, a coming-of-age trip around Europe that was common among upper-class families in the 17th and 18th century. While each room provides a cultural atmosphere, Rome’s history can also be enjoyed from the hotel’s rooftop bar, which has a breathtaking view of the Eternal City. It may be the location in the heart of Rome that inspired the hotel’s artistic style, but it is Rocco Forte’s philosophy on quality accommodation and service that makes Hotel De La Ville stand out from the rest.
