Hotel Eden's extensive project provides guests with a true Roman experience with its breathtaking views across the Eternal City, capturing a spectacular panorama.
Blending contemporary features with the charm and authentic classic Roman style of the property, world-renowned architect and interior designers Bruno Moinard and Claire Bétaille, together with Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku, were appointed to the project.
Welcoming guests into the entrance, Moinard and Bétaille display their 'Alive Art' concept, embracing and developing designs of the past, rather than imitating them. Using various furniture and architectural details crossing through numerous ages and styles, Moinard and Bétaille strike the perfect balance between old and new. The lobby features golden touches to provide a warm atmosphere, completed with fresco paintings by Gio Bressana and punctuated by red ochre and grey stucco marble.
Fine fabrics, beautiful artwork and timeless Italian furnishings from leading Italian artisans are used throughout, delicately blending modern luxuries with the charm and authentic classic Roman style of the property.
Offering a dramatic contrast to the walls and ceilings, the floors display a more contemporary feel, with black, white and grey marble, whilst the reception desk and main lobby lounge embrace an authentic Roman design with two large 'steles' as reception desks and a large fresco above the fireplace, creating a dramatic optical illusion.
Sophisticated and elegant in design, the guestrooms and suites provide bright and airy spaces with high ceilings and tall windows, framing Rome's stunning skyline and utilising the hotel's central location and city views.
La Terrazza is the jewel in Hotel Eden's crown. Located on the top floor, it offers guests mesmerising views over Rome alongside creative and innovative seasonal Mediterranean dining. Using high quality, fresh and seasonal produce, the cuisine at La Terrazza focuses on the nutritional aspects of the ingredients as well as overall wellbeing and is overseen by award-winning executive chef Fabio Ciervo.
Providing guests the ultimate retreat from the city's crowded streets, Il Giardino Ristorante & Bar offers the perfect place for day meetings as well as indulgent evenings watching the sun go down over Rome's skyline.
"Hotel Eden has a rich heritage and prominent location in the heart of Rome. While it continues to rank as one of the top hotels in the world, the restoration programme has revitalised the property and will lead it into its next chapter. Our vision was to create a property that continues to enchant both local residents and international travellers alike."
