Hotel de Russie, a Rocco Forte Hotel
Why we like it

- The Wellness Zone boasts a spa with marine hydropool, sauna, Turkish steam bath, treatments and gym - the Roman Ritual treatment is a must for tired feet
- The hotel operates a special programme for children
- A&K recommends the City view rooms, whilst the inter-connecting rooms are perfect for families
We loved the idea of a romantic private dining experience for couples. Set in Le Jardin Privé, a secluded corner of the Secret Garden, it is a small slice of the romance of the Eternal City.
My travel consultant, Sarah Brunger, was very polite to talk to over the phone and I felt as though she asked all the right questions. She was very kind and presented me with a number of options to choose from and even after I had made a choice, was very accommodating with the specific changes I was requesting.

A unique luxury hotel in the heart of Rome, Hotel de Russie is set in extensive, terraced gardens - the 'Secret Garden', which provides a tranquil oasis amidst the bustle of central Rome. After dark, the garden is illuminated by soft lights and, during high season is home to the open air Stravinskij Bar.
Not surprisingly, this secluded hotel is frequented by celebrities and Italian nobles alike - a billing it lives up to with easy. The interiors are all cool, understated style, dominated by soft pastel colours and carefully selected contemporary furnishings, their spacious bathrooms decorated with mosaic tiles and marble.
Hotel de Russie is within easy walking distance of Rome's key attractions, fashion houses and Via Condotti. The Vatican City, with St Peter's and the Sistine Chapel is just a ten-minute walk away, while Piazza Navona and the Trevi Fountain are also within easy reach.
Best time to be there
Coastal areas and the islands are great year round, although July and August can be very hot. The arts and opera seasons are generally at their peak outside these months. August is very much a shut down month as Italians take their annual break.
