Nuel has taken inspiration from the building’s original architecture as well as the landscaped gardens of the adjacent Villa Borghese
ROME (PRWEB) July 23, 2019
Five star hotel Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese has re-opened following a complete redesign by French architect and interior designer Jean-Philippe Nuel.
Situated in a former 19th century Roman palazzo, Nuel has taken inspiration from the building’s original architecture as well as the landscaped gardens of the adjacent Villa Borghese to bring a fresh look with a nature-inspired color palette for the city retreat.
The 78-room hotel lies on a quaint street in the center of the city, just moments from iconic landmarks including the Villa Medici, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps.
Edoardo Giuntoli, the hotel’s General Manager says, “In a city which is home to some of Europe’s most exciting historical buildings, it was essential for the new design to subtly incorporate Rome’s rich history along with Sofitel’s French elegance. What we’ve created is a chic fusion of the Italian La Dolce Vita heritage with modern French Art de Vivre.”
Each of the guest rooms features a Baroque-inspired ceiling that creates the illusion of a blue sky above as well as a signature Sofitel MyBed bed and marble bathroom complete with Hermès toiletries.
The hotel’s Prestige Suites, some with private terraces, offer luxury amenities including leather key card holders, a choice of room fragrance and monogrammed pillowcases. Suite guests can also enjoy bespoke experiences, from touring Europe’s oldest apothecary to vintage Vespa rides to well-known movie locations.
The crown jewel of the hotel situated on the seventh floor and offering panoramic views of The Eternal City is Settimo - an elegant rooftop lounge and restaurant with bold interiors and both indoor and outdoor seating. Settimo serves contemporary Roman cuisine using locally sourced ingredients and Executive Chef, Giuseppe D’Alessio, incorporates traditional Roman culinary styles into all the signature dishes. Cocktail enthusiasts can enjoy sundowners with a view, with one of Settimo’s signature drinks which come with specially paired finger food.
Guests can also benefit from personalized wellness and fitness therapies with the SofitelFITNESS Wellness Program in the hotel’s fitness center.
Room rates for Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese start from $375 per night (excluding breakfast). For more information, visit: sofitel.accorhotels.com/gb/hotel-1312-sofitel-roma-reopens-renovated-in-summer/index.shtml.
