Next year will see the opening of Iberostar Hotels & Resorts’ first hotel in the centre of Rome, the Iberostar Fontana di Trevi.
The company has set its sights on Italy to boost its city hotels segment with this five-star boutique hotel.
The new hotel is situated on one of the main streets in Rome’s historic centre, between the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon, two of the city’s most outstanding architectural treasures.
Standing just off Via del Corso, the hotel boasts a prime location in one of the city’s most popular shopping areas, offering easy access to all the Italian capital’s major tourist attractions.
The Iberostar Fontana di Trevi is housed in a magnificent six storey 19th century building that combines Renaissance and Neo-Renaissance style elements.
In addition to the 67 rooms and a wide range of exclusive services, the hotel also features a spectacular rooftop terrace, the perfect place to admire Rome’s spectacular skyline.
World-famous artist Daniel Buren is responsible for one of the hotel’s greatest attractions: a masterpiece of contemporary art that will be unveiled on November 9th during an event held in Rome.
The French master was commissioned for this project due to his outstanding work on creating a connection between modernity and classical architecture, two concepts that will form a quintessential part of the hotel’s identity.
The inclusion of the Iberostar Fontana di Trevi in Rome brings the number of properties in the company’s city hotel portfolio to ten, joining those located in New York, Miami, Lisbon, Havana, Madrid, Barcelona and Budapest.
It also represents a further move forward in its city hotels expansion strategy, designed to boost the company’s presence in the world’s leading tourist capitals with hotels offering prime central locations that reflect the authenticity and charm of the cities they are located in, providing guests with unique experiences.
Aurelio Vázquez, Iberostar Group’s chief operations officer, explained: “We are really excited about this new project.
“Rome is one of the top international destinations attracting both business and leisure travellers, and Iberostar Fontana di Trevi is designed as a boutique hotel tailored to cater for both types of guest.
“The building is truly unique and boasts a matchless location, and we are working hard to offer first class services and facilities that will guarantee guests a memorable stay with us in Rome.”
