Exclusive Getaway in Rome: Hotel De La Ville
Rome, Italy has countless landmarks and attractions. From artistic masterpieces to ancient ruins, piazzas to cathedrals, there is much to see and experience in the country’s capital. One of the most notable sites are the Spanish Steps. Constructed in the early 1700’s, the 138-step stairway leads from the famous Piazza di Spagna virtually right up to the new exclusive getaway of Hotel De La Ville.
Rome’s Newest Exclusive Getaway
Rocco Forte Hotels has long been synonymous with luxury throughout the world. While the hotelier already has a stunning Roman property in Hotel de Russie, in May 2019, they opened the doors to Hotel De La Ville. This five-star hotel makes it home in an 18th century palazzo. Set atop the slope of the Spanish Steps, it has an incredible view over the city, 104 guest quarters, decadent restaurants and a pampering spa.
Lavish Guest Quarters
The guest accommodations at Hotel De La Ville are touted to be the most spacious in the city. Not unexpectedly, they are also among the most luxurious. While all of the rooms and suites at this brand new five-star hotel will be the highlight of any Rome vacation, the Signature Suites are not to be missed. The Canova Suite takes its name from Neoclassical sculptor Antonio Canova. The common space in the suite features neutral tones and a carefully curated art collection. In contrast, the bedroom has rich jewel tones that create a cozy and romantic escape. As an added bonus, the Canova Suite’s terrace has a stunning panoramic view of Rome.
For a touch of Roman glamour, try the Roma Suite. A combination of vintage and contemporary pieces, this large retreat has two terraces that wrap around the suite and have a view of Rome and overlooks the hotel’s courtyard, Via Sistina.
Lastly, Suite De La Ville is the utmost in luxury. Accessed via a private elevator, art, antique furniture and lush textiles fill the lavish suite. And there is no shortage of space. In fact, Suite De La Ville offers a sitting room, study, bedroom, private dining room and a guest bath. In addition, the suite can connect to other rooms to create a multi-bedroom apartment. And, of course, the view from the two terraces cannot be beat!

Most travelers touring Rome look forward to indulging in the local cuisine. Hotel De La Ville takes that pleasure seriously. As such, each of the restaurants in this exclusive getaway offers decadent food. Designed by famed chef Fulvio Pierangelini, Mosaico’s menu utilizes local, seasonal produce to put an interesting twist on Italian fare by pairing it with African, Middle Eastern and European flavors. In addition, the restaurant also has a carefully curated wine collection. But if you are more in the mood for traditional Italian food, look no further than Da Sistina. A refined version of the classic Roman trattoria, this restaurant serves elevated local dishes.
Cielo Bar is a rooftop terrace bar with a view that is incomparable. Enjoy a menu of small plates that has a sumptuous fusion of Asian dim sum with Italian flavors. And while the bar is a wonderful way to relax after a day of touring the city, at night Cielo Bar comes alive with a DJ and dancing. Lastly, Julep Herbal & Vermouth Bar is a cocktail bar that offers original drinks inspired by the 13th century spice route that once worked its way throughout Europe.

Set to open in July, De La Ville Spa’s menu offers a host of relaxing experiences.
