Now Open: The Rome Edition

The Rome Edition has opened its doors to welcome guests. The intimate property houses three bars, a rooftop lounge, bar and pool, a show-kitchen restaurant, a wellness space with gym and treatment rooms, and a courtyard garden. There are 91 rooms, including 17 suites at the hotel.

Built in the 1940s and formerly occupied by an Italian bank, the building is an example of the rationalist style, and was created by Cesare Pascoletti in collaboration with architect Marcello Piacentini. Original features are retained throughout, including the central courtyards, original statues and lamps.

The lobby, with its 22-foot-high ceilings, white fabric sofas and coffee tables, is a place to relax or play a few games of pool on the custom-made table. The guestrooms have expansive windows, Italian artwork and a 55-inch TV. The bathrooms are fitted with a custom Carrara marble basin and brushed brass fixtures, as well as signature Le Labo amenities.

The Rome Edition’s signature restaurant Anima is helmed by Chef Paola Colucci, and is open-fronted so guests can admire her work. The menu includes traditional Italian dishes with a modern twist and international outlook. The restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Touted as a first for the city, the hotel has a garden that will serve as both a piazza and dining space. The Garden provides outdoor seating for Anima one side and an all-day terrace on the other, offering a menu of light dishes available until late evening.

Located on the ground floor, there are two bars: Punch Room and Jade Bar. The Punch Room, Edition’s signature bar concept, is a speakeasy-inspired bar concept, while Jade Bar is an intimate mixology destination. The Roof is located on the seventh floor, and offers views across the city skyline and landmarks such as the Pantheon, Acqua Paola Fountain and Basilica of Sant’Andrea della Valle. The secluded spot has a large bar area, a travertine plunge pool with daybeds.

Good to know: The hotel is only a few steps from Via Veneto, and popular major attractions are within easy reach, including the Piazza Barberini, the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain and the Borghese Gardens.
