Hotel de Russie, a Rocco Forte Hotel

Rome’s city center luxury retreat
The Hotel de Russie, a Rocco Forte Hotel is Rome’s hidden oasis in the midst of the chaotic historic center. Once the go-to spot for international luminaries such as Pablo Picasso, composer Igor Stravinsky and poet Jean Cocteau, the early 19th century de Russie unveiled a new look in 2000 that uprooted the Eternal City's traditional atmosphere with a chic, contemporary vibe and quickly propelled the de Russie to the top of Rome's luxury hotel scene.

What we love about Hotel de Russie is that it’s discreet, stylish and fabulous. Like all good hideaways, the de Russie's modest façade cloaks an incredible palazzo and garden where glitterati from around the world love to take refuge. And since tranquility and discretion are paramount to the de Russie service, guests will experience the best in a peaceful and private getaway.
