A look inside the new Bulgari Hotel Roma

Designed to celebrate the history and culture of Rome, the hotel is a showcase of Italian style and craftsmanship developed through the lens of classic elegance.

Bulgari Hotels & Resorts has opened its ninth hotel at Piazza Augusto Imperatore, Bulgari Hotel Roma. Undeniably contemporary yet radiating a sense of timelessness, this new property from the Italian jeweller and fashion house seems artfully suspended in time while offering the best of modern amenities.

Bulgari Hotel Roma

The first Bulgari Hotel opened in Milan in 2004 and it took nearly two decades for the house to locate and develop a second outpost on home turf. Once this position on Piazza Augusto Imperatore was finalised, a multi-year restoration project was undertaken on the remains of a 1930s modernist building, preserving the exterior and refurbishing the interiors. The restoration and redesign of the property was a collaborative effort between Milan-based architectural studio ACPV Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, and Studio Polis of Rome architect, Gennaro Farina. The hotel immerses guests in the Italian lifestyle, combining gastronomy, hospitality, arts and craftsmanship with effortless grace. The 46,024 square metre property even has a Pentelic marble statue of the Roman emperor Augustus greeting guests in the lobby.

Culture and design

With its ochre travertine marble and burnt red brick, Bulgari Hotel Roma pays homage to the Eternal City in design and is steps from two of Rome’s most iconic landmarks: the Ara Pacis and the Mausoleum of Augustus. In the heart of Campo Marzio, the resort boasts 114 suites, a pool, and Il Ristorante, curated by Michelin-starred chef Niko Romit, where guests dine with views over the tomb of Emperor Augustus. There’s even a library that presents visitors with a curated selection of tomes on Roman art and architecture. The Spanish Steps, Via del Corso and the Bulgari Flagship store on Via Condotti are just minutes away.

Elevated amenities

Once guests are done with sightseeing or dining on dishes of handmade panzanella, tortelli with burrata and basil or crispy suckling pig with orange caramel sauce, they can indulge in the Bulgari Spa with its nod to ancient Roman baths, complete with massive marble columns.
