The fabulous terraced gardens in the courtyard at the Hotel de Russie just one of the reasons the hotel is sought after. The impeccable décor that runs throughout is another, making it one of the most stylish in town. Rooms and suites are a symphony of good taste, with refined tones and colourful touches, with lavish bathrooms. Many rooms have wonderful views of the Roman skyline.
The de Russie has long been a favourite with artistic aristocracy, including Pablo Picasso and Jean Cocteau. The latter described it as ‘paradise on earth’ decades ago, it feels that way now, particularly while dining or enjoying a drink in the gardens. Rome’s finest and most famous flock to the bar here, which means that the atmosphere is always on the thrilling side. The two-Michelin-star chef is considered to serve some of the best Italian food in Rome, which is really saying something.
There’s no pool, but there is a luxurious spa with a hydropool and a Turkish steam bath.
