Rocco Forte Hotel De Russie, ITALY
由洛克福德酒店集团（Rocco Forte Hotels）执掌的罗马洛克福德大酒店，将历史与当下融为一体，经典优雅又不失现代的时尚，是罗马城最顶级的酒店之一。
酒店最初的名字是“hotel de Russie et des Iles Britannique”，为什么坐落在罗马的酒店会有一个俄罗斯的名字？因为1816 至 1819 年期间，许多俄罗斯皇室成员和俄罗斯艺术家都喜欢到罗马，他们喜爱罗马气候温和的冬季，而酒店是他们永恒之城下榻的不二之选。罗马人因此把它称为俄罗斯人的酒店 （L’Albergo di Russia ），在法国统治期间则把酒店命名为 Hotel De Russie 。
酒店在历史上就名流云集， 俄罗斯派芭蕾创始人谢尔盖达基列夫印象派大师毕加索俄罗斯最富有的尤苏波夫家族的公主Zeniade Yussupova俄罗斯作曲家斯特拉文斯基等都是这里的常客。
在第二次世界大战期间，酒店被军事信息服务部征用，战后成为RAI的总部。直到2000年4月15日， 洛克福德先生（Sir Rocco Forte）把它恢复成为豪华酒店，由洛克福德酒店集团执掌并重新开放。
2800平米的“秘密花园（Secret Garden）”是酒店最好的馈赠，在18161818年由罗马建筑师朱塞佩瓦拉迪耶（Giuseppe Valadier）设计修建。它藏匿在酒店的主建筑背后，遍植橙树和古老的蔷薇，配合宁静的散步道和美丽的瀑布，是喧闹的都市核心的一片宁静的绿洲。春夏季傍晚的时候，柔美的灯光亮起，位于花园中的Stravinskij 酒吧是几个世纪以来罗马城名流云集的著名社交场所。
Crown Jewel of The Eternal City: Rocco Forte Hotel Rome
Operated by Rocco Forte Hotels, Rocco Forte Hotel Rome weaves history into modernity and retains elegance while being chic. It is one of the top hotels in Rome.
Situated beside the Spanish Steps and Piazza del Popolo, Rocco Forte Hotel Rome is an integral part of Rome, with its modern design that respects the classical architecture of the building and its green oasis.
The hotel‘s original name is ”hotel de Russie et des Iles Britannique”, but why does a hotel located in Rome have a Russian name During the period from 1816 to 1819, many members of the Russian royal and Russian artists loved to visit Rome, they enjoyed the mild winter climate in Rome, and the hotel is their best choice in this Eternal City. The Romans therefore called it L‘Albergo di Russia, and it was later renamed as Hotel De Russie during the French rule.
Countless celebrities have visited the hotel in the past. Russian ballet founder Sergei Dakilev, impressionist master Picasso, Princess of Russia‘s richest Yusupov family, Zeniade Yussupova, the Russian composer Stravinsky, are all regulars here.
During the Second World War, the hotel was requisitioned by the military information service and became the headquarters of RAI after the war. Until April 15, 2000, Sir Rocco Forte restored it into a luxury hotel, which was then reopened and operated by Rocco Forte Hotels.
The 2,800 square meters ”Secret Garden” is the best gift of the hotel. It was designed and constructed during 18161818 by architect Giuseppe Valadier. It is hidden behind the main building of the hotel, with orange trees and old roses by the quiet walk and beautiful waterfalls – certainly a quiet oasis in the heart of the city. In the spring and summer evenings, Stravinskij bar located in the garden becomes the famous place for social celebrities of Rome city, an existing tradition for many centuries.
The hotel contains 88 rooms and 33 spacious suites with a blend of classical architectural features and contemporary design. The elegant design and exquisite romanticism are most alluring.
Suite Vaselli owes its name to Countess Romolo Vaselli, the owner of the building who bought the old building in the 1950s. Located on the fifth floor, the suite features a private terrace with a stunning view over the hotel’s lush garden.
Located on the hotel’s sixth floor, Suite Popolo’s private terrace overlooks the monumental Piazza del Popolo and the picturesque terracotta rooftops so characteristic of Rome. Alongside classic modern Italian architecture design, the rooms are adorned with Italian natural fabrics and embellished with antique pieces.
Named after the famous painter, Pablo Picasso, who stayed at the hotel for three leisurely months in 1917 when preparing to stage the first ever Cubist ballet, Suite Picasso boasts some of its namesake’s precious lithographs, which can be admired in the suite’s living area. The Suite is decorated with Papal yellows and purples, and features an exquisitely designed dining room with a marble table for six and a bar. The suite is located on the top floor of the hotel and its 25 square meters private terrace overlooks the hotel’s beautiful Secret Garden.
The Nijinsky Suite is a remarkable home, dedicated to the famous dancer and choreographer, now the most prestigious and spacious suite in the hotel. The room decoration is modern and stylish, and the bathroom is reminiscent of the atmosphere in Roman thermal baths with precious marbles, mosaics and a Turkish bath.
