Iberostar Hotels & Resorts has announced it will open its first hotel in the center of Rome, the Iberostar Fontana di Trevi, in 2019. The company has set its sights on Italy to boost its city hotels segment with this five-star boutique hotel.

The new hotel will be situated on one of the main streets in Rome’s historic center, between the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon. The hotel stands just off Via del Corso.

Iberostar Fontana di Trevi is housed in a six-story, 19th-century building that combines Renaissance and Neo-Renaissance style elements. In addition to 67 rooms and a range of exclusive services, the hotel will also have a rooftop terrace, a venue to watch Rome’s skyline.

Artist Daniel Buren is responsible for one of the hotel’s pieces of contemporary art that will be unveiled on November 9 during an event to be held in Rome. The French artist was commissioned for this project due to his work on creating a connection between modernity and classical architecture, two concepts that Iberostar Hotels & Resorts says will form a quintessential part of the hotel’s identity.  

The Iberostar Fontana di Trevi in Rome brings the number of properties in the company’s city hotel portfolio to 10, joining those located in New York City, Miami, Lisbon, Havana, Madrid, Barcelona and Budapest. It also represents a further move forward in its city hotels expansion strategy, designed to boost the company’s presence in the world’s leading tourist capitals.
