With a grand exterior reminiscent of a historic palazzo and bold, modern, design-conscious interiors, W Rome truly reflects the buzz of the Eternal City. With its rooftop pool, swish lounge and delightful, ivy clad cloister bar Giardino Clandestino, the hotel is the height of elegance in a modern and central location. The hotel features bold 1970s-inspired design and interiors overseen by renowned designer Meyer Davis with blocks of colour combined with dramatic graphic patterns in shades of brunt orange, red and green, while colourful furniture blends with the stone clad walls in a nod to the building’s heritage. Reflective surfaces used in the hotel’s public spaces lend the hotel a more contemporary feel.
The hotel is centrally located on Via Liguria in the modern and elegant Ludovisi district. Historic sights and tourist attractions such as the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Colosseum and Piazza Navona are all within easy walking distance, while the calming gardens of Villa Borghese are just seven minutes away. Also on your doorstep is the National Gallery of Ancient Art in Villa Barberini with its vast collection of artworks, and the Church of Santa Maria della Vittoria, which houses Bernini’s famous sculpture, the Ecstasy of Saint Teresa. For upscale shopping check out the elegant Via di Monserrato and the bustling Via Veneto. When it comes to dining, the best value options nearby are trendy Pizzeria San Marco and Ristorante Tullio, which does great steaks. Barberini Metro station is a few minutes’ walk away, while Termini railway station is a mile away. Leonardo da Vinci International Airport is just under 20 miles away.
The hotel’s stylish open-plan rooms and suites feature design touches such as wooden herringbone floors, marble surfaces and rich maroon curtains, with bath products by Davines and W Signature beds. Many offer sublime city views, including those overlooking the Istituto Svizzero, and some feature private balconies and terraces. The vibe is home away from home with a modern twist.

Fusing authentic Sicilian and classic Roman flavours, head chef Ciccio Sultano presides over the hotel’s flagship eatery Giano Restaurant.
