Announcing Rocco Forte House Piazza di Spagna in Rome

Rocco Forte Hotels has launched a new kind of hospitality experience. Facing the Piazza di Spagna, one of the most famous squares in Rome, the first-ever Rocco Forte House occupies an 18th-century palazzo, offering just five suites and a rooftop terrace with panoramic views overlooking the Spanish Steps. The idea is to give guests an ultra-private, personalized experience, unlocking the secrets of Rome with elevated service standards. The intimacy of the surroundings ensures an opulent, “home-away-from-home” ambiance. New openings in various cities will be announced in the coming months.

In the Eternal City, Olga Polizzi, director of design at Rocco Forte Hotels and sister of Sir Rocco Forte, tapped Rome-based designer Tommaso Ziffer to decorate the suites. Known for his collaboration with Valentino, Ziffer chose an eclectic melange of antiques and 1970s decor. The suites range in size from 1,356 square feet (two bedrooms) to 3,132 square feet (the four-bedroom Borghese Private Suite). Note that two of the suites come with their own terrace.
