Hotel de Russie - Rome
Part of Rocco Forte Hotels, The Hotel de Russie is a luxury five-star hotel located in the heart of the beautiful city of Rome between the Spanish Steps and Piazza del Popolo on the Via del Babuino. The hotel is within easy walking distance of Rome's key attractions, fashion houses and Via Condotti. The Vatican City, with St Peter's and the Sistine Chapel, is just a ten-minute walk from the Hotel de Russie while Piazza Navona and the Trevi Fountain are also within easy access. The most unique luxury hotel in Rome, Hotel de Russie provides a stunning feature - extensive, terraced gardens, the “Secret Garden”, so called because it is hidden behind the building which overlooks Via del Babuino, and provides a tranquil oasis amidst the bustle of central Rome where you can dine alfresco at “Le Jardin de Russie” Restaurant or enjoy a peaceful stroll.
