Bulgari Hotels & Resorts has announced plans for a new Rome hotel. Opening in 2022, Bulgari Hotel Roma is touted as “an exceptional homage to the home of Bulgari and its greatest source of inspiration.” The Hotel will be located in the heart of the Campo Marzio neighborhood, minutes from the Spanish Steps, Via del Corso and the Bulgari flagship on Via Condotti.
The Bulgari Hotel Roma will be located in a modernist building from the 1930s that faces two of Rome’s most iconic landmarks: The Ara Pacis and the Mausoleum of Augustus, the first Roman Imperator. Bulgari CEO Jean-Christophe Babin said in a video that the company was looking for a new location in Rome for several years.
Like all Bulgari Hotels properties, the Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel will be in charge of both the restoration of the building and the interior design of the new Bulgari Hotel Roma. The hotel will have over 100 rooms, most of them suites, as well as Il Ristorante curated by Michelin-starred chef Niko Romito and The Bulgari Bar. Other amenities will include a 65-foot-long pool, a 10,700-square-foot spa, a gym and library dedicated to the history of jewelry.
Materials such as ochre Travertine marble and burnt red brick emphasize the link to Emperor Augustus’ ancient Rome, while a rotating collection of both modern and antique art will highlight the Eternal City’s history as one of the world’s cradle of arts and culture.
When it opens, Bulgari Hotel Roma will be 10th hotel in the company’s portfolio.
