In line with Dorchester Collection’s continuous investment in taking the luxury experience to new levels, 1 April 2017, sees the reopening and unveiling of Hotel Eden, the company’s property in Rome, following an extensive 18-month restoration.
World-renowned architect and interior designers Bruno Moinard and Claire Betaille of 4BI & Associés, together with Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku from Jouin Manku, were commissioned to oversee the renovation, comprising 98 spacious guestrooms and suites, a dynamic food and drink concept and the hotel’s first urban spa and blow-dry bar.
Located in the heart of the old city of Rome, a short stroll from the legendary Spanish Steps and Villa Borghese, Hotel Eden will provide guests with a true Roman experience, enhanced by a panorama views across the Eternal City. Formerly offering 121 rooms, the hotel’s reduced room and suites count ensures more expansive spaces for guests to relax.

Hotel Eden’s top suite, the Bellavista Penthouse Suite, offers unrivaled views of Rome with floor-to-ceiling windows which can be fully opened.
New to the hotel is the Eden Spa, offering a range of holistic wellness experiences and therapies from Sonya Dakar and Officina Profumo – Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella. The new urban spa features three suites and a unique blow-dry bar, as well as a manicure and pedicure suite.
Throughout the restoration, each designer has taken special care in preserving the spirit of the property. Guests will feel at home with the same dedicated team who ran the hotel prior to its temporary closure in 2015, offering the familiar, ultimate quality service.
