Overview

Classically elegant yet refreshingly unstuffy grande dame in a 19th-century villa near the Spanish Steps

The Look

Understated elegance in a neoclassical villa. The five-star Eden has been one of Rome’s finest hotels since opening in 1889, and it can count Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway and Federico Fellini as former guests. The flagship property of the Dorchester Collection, it’s a classic grande dame a five-minute stroll from the Spanish Steps. Plush velvets, rich damasks, overstuffed sofas, curlicued carvings, marble busts and costly antiques fill the public areas, and the sixth-floor restaurant commands some of the best views of the Eternal City.

Bed and Bath

The 121 graceful guestrooms are light and bright, even in the smaller categories. You’ll find yourself in a tasteful refuge of crisp white linens, dark woods and ankle-deep carpets. The bathrooms are decked out with cream marble, mirrored walls and antique enamelwork (although there’s no sacrificing on the water pressure in the power showers), and they’re stocked with generous supplies of Gilchrist & Soames toiletries.

Beyond

La Terrazza dell’Eden restaurant serves one of the best tasting menus in Rome; the highlight of Michelin-starred chef Fabio Ciervo’s seven-course blowout is a loin of lamb with hazelnut crust, lamb shoulder confit and thyme sauce. Wine pairing is an added pleasure. The obligatory Roman aperitivo at the Giardino dell’Eden bar provides a stunning bird’s-eye view of the Eternal City. Elsewhere there’s a modern fitness center, and in-room massages are available.

In the Area

If upscale eats are your thing, check out new kid on the block Marzapane, a tiny black-and-white eatery whose chef, Alba Esteve Ruiz, is tipped for a Michelin star. For ice cream try Giolitti, the most elegant gelateria in town. And for luxe shopping off the beaten track, head to the lively Via del Governo Vecchio, in the centro storico, an atmospheric street full of great little shops. Galleria Borghese has the best collection of art south of Florence: sculptures from ancient Rome to Canova and Bernini, a roomful of Caravaggios and an upper gallery packed with Raphaels, Cranachs and Titians.

Reviews

Not being welcome
PrasertAp

The hotel is not welcome other guest to visit to see the lobby or anything else. So never visit this place if you are not checked in. I have been to many major hotels but it never ever happen like this. I was thinking to stay there in a future but now I should select other hotel who welcome everyone

Rome Oasis

Very well located walking distance to Shopping, Spanish Steps and Trevi fountain. The rooftop restaurant for a lite meal is very nice. Rooms are spacious. Check was easy. Very nice amenities. Pampering on all levels

"The Best"

Our stay at the Eden Hotel was outstanding. The service was incredible, food was wonderful. Moina (guest manager) was always around making sure our experience at this property was the best. We can not thank you enough for all the care and love we have received at Eden hotel. We know now where to stay when visiting Rome.
