Hotel de Russie
Hotel de Russie, under The Rocco Forte Hotels, is a fascinating mix of old and new designs with a modern feel. Designed by world-famous architect Tommaso Ziffer and established in 1996 by Sir Rocco Forte and his sister Olga Polizzi, the hotel sits – with its 121 bedrooms – on Rome’s fashionable Via del Babuino, between the Spanish Steps and the Piazza del Popolo. Today, Hotel de Russie is the finest of all the 5-star hotels in Rome.
From the private apartment concepts of the Popolo and Picasso suites to the distinctive style that combines luxury and comfort, the hotel’s detail and elegant furnishings brings a sense of vibrancy and Roman flair to the rooms. It has four meeting rooms to host events, as well as the Nijinsky Suite with its extensive private terrace, ideal for al fresco dining and exclusive entertaining.
One of the highlights of Hotel de Russie is the Secret Garden; full of orange trees and antique roses, it features the Stravinskij Bar, offering delicious Mediterranean dishes created by Chef and Creative Director of Food, Fulvio Pierangelini. Le Jardin de Russie Restaurant, also located at the Secret Garden, is a gourmet culinary revolution, with superb Italian cuisine overseen by the illustrious Chef Fulvio.
Guests will enjoy the ultimate urban retreat in the heart of Rome at the de Russie Spa, an exclusive oasis of beauty and health, with a Hydrotherapy Pool area, sauna, and Turkish bath. The Spa offers lovers of well-being an escape into the unexplored beauty of Rome, giving them an option to jog or cycle through the capital with personal trainer Danilo Palmucci.

To those visiting Florence, Hotel Savoy is the perfect place to absorb the exhilarating atmosphere of Florence. Inaugurated in 1893, it was known as one of the most modern and luxurious hotels of that period. Now, it has been modernly re-styled by Olga Polizzi.
Hotel Savoy has 102 luxury rooms, including 14 newly redesigned suites, with their charming views over Piazza della Repubblica and contemporary Italian-style rooms and suites, featuring carefully chosen ceramics and mosaics. Hotel guests can enjoy private steam rooms located in the Brunelleschi Suite and Signori Suite. The fitness center on the top floor has panoramic views over the Duomo. Better yet, within walking distance are elegant shopping streets and monuments.
When you’re at Hotel Savoy, you must stop by Irene Restaurant, which offers a great dining experience – a journey through flavor and tradition with simple, authentic flavors, and light and healthy reinventions of Tuscan classics. If you’re a passionate foodie, you’ll get to enjoy dishes like Lemon and Parmesan Stracciatella soup, and Tagliolini with fava bean and fresh Tillos sheep cheese.Interested in art and culture?
