Roman Leisure at de Russie

A paradise on earth”

The French poet’s words remain as veracious today as when they were uttered in 1917. But the 5-star Hotel de Russie has remained a centerpiece of the Eternal City even before Jean Cocteau and Pablo Picasso stretched out their windows to pick from its orange trees. The illustrious haven owes its classical, cosmopolitan aesthetic to architect Giuseppe Valadier, who designed it in the early 19th Century. Its name derives from the Russian aristocrats and artists who often stayed there during frequent vacations to Rome. Today, it remains a Roman treasure and well-known favorite of prominent celebrities and politicians. It’s ideal location along the Via del Babuino affords a brief walk to the famed Piazza del Popolo or the historic Spanish Steps. An affiliate of the Rocco Forte Group, Hotel de Russie graces travelers with comfort and beauty of the highest luxury.

Rooms & Suites

Designed by Olga Polizzi and Tommas Ziffer, De Russie’s 120 suites and rooms demonstrate a unique fusion between the traditional and the contemporary to exemplify Roman extravagance. Each is adorned with chic furnishings, botanically inspired wallpaper and impressive artwork that reflects the city’s history.

Though this paradise offers various suites, including the vibrant Picasso quarters, the Nijinski suite remains the hotel’s most impressive residence. Situated at the top of De Russie, the Nijinsky occupies 172 square meters with a playful, yet refined interior, as well as a massive 239 square meter terrace overlooking the Secret Garden and Villa Borghese. With a tasteful library, homestyle living room, a dining room fit for 10, and a stunningly opulent bathroom adorned with Carrara marble and Bisazza mosaics, this premier suite exudes a balanced energy sure to comfort and excite any traveler.

De Russi Spa & Wellnesss

The hotel’s tranquil De Russie Spa affords a calming retreat from the clamor and vivacity of the Caput Mundi. The spacious wet facilities include a saltwater hydro pool, steam room and sauna, while an extensive assortment of facial treatments, therapies, rituals and massages induce further tranquility, including an exclusive Swiss Perfection facial with cellular lift content for a costly 975 euros. It also offers the Serini Hair Corner, which provides high-end haircuts and color treatments from the Shu Umemura brand.

Aperitivo in a Sanctuary

Though not particularly secret, De Russie’s Mediterranean tiered garden still exudes a mystifying presence. Rose bushes, orange trees and mature pines pervade the viridescent forum, while a gently lit walkway ascends to a small waterfall flowing between three nymphaeums, echoing idyllic sounds throughout the oasis. Landscaper Antonella Daroda reconstructed the garden from Valadier’s modernist revision, restoring its original aesthetic to reflect a timeless allurement.

At the foot of the sanctuary, the Stravinskij Bar hosts Roman elite and hotel guests before dinner. The private piazza splendors beneath the verdant lawns and assimilates patrons to unique drinks and fine Italian cuisine. As the day calmly exhales, a singular Aperitivo experience awaits with a variety of stellar cocktails, including artisanal martinis and their signature Stravinskij Spritz.

Le Jardine

Le Jardine de Russie’s sublime atmosphere and lavish menu provides an experience as palatial as any Roman restaurant. It includes a classically toned dining room with high walls, white interiors and a dazzling chandelier, as well as an extensive, outdoor terrace amidst the Secret Garden and scent of citrus. Led by Director of Food Fulvio Pierangelini and Executive Chef Nazzareno Menghini, the menu offers a superlative assortment of classic Italian dishes with a distinctively Mediterranean flair.
