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.
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.
How to Get There
Went for breakfast at 6th floor restaurant. The views and atmosphere were excellent but what made it even more memorable was the service and courtesy we received from Marco and Fillipo. Well done and thanks for starting off our last day in Rome in a great way.
I have to say that this hotel exceeded any expectations in terms of service quality! They treat you like their family members! It left is speechless! Attention to details rocks! Bravo! Simply bravo! We loved our stay there because of the personnel - concierges were great! Receptionists were great! Waiters and waitresses super! Breakfast on the top floor rules! What can we say! Thank you and good luck! Keep this quality! Hotel Eden is one of the best hotels in the world’ everything was perfect! A big thank you from Burdiladze-Meredova family! You made our stay unforgettable !!!
My Partner and I checked into Hotel Eden and we were only meant to stay there for 2 days only but then my partner got really sick. The Hotel reacted in the best possible way. The concern from the GM Luca was absolutely outstanding. They organised the best hospital in Rome and since my partner didn’t want to stay at the Hospital the Hotel allowed nurses to come into the Hotel room and change the IV of my partner 3 times a day. The service we received in this Hotel was out of this world. Every time we went to the restaurant/bar we always had extra wishes and ordered things that weren't on the menu. There was no limit from the service staff nor the kitchen. The concierge Anna was amazing and Luca, the GM, definitely knows how to run a five star Hotel. If I could I would rate this Hotel a six star. If you go to Rome this is a must see Hotel and one of the best Hotels in Europe.
