6 New Hotels Coming To Rome In 2023


Rome is eternally chic—thanks in part to an influx of stylish new hotel openings

“Two thousand twenty three is set to be a year to remember for luxury hospitality in Rome,” says Carolina Perez, Founder of DUCO Travel Summit, an annual tourism event for the Italian hospitality industry. “[There are] plenty of relevant luxury hotel brands, from Six Senses, which—after the success of Ibiza—is landing in Rome in Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini (refurbished by celebrity architect Patricia Urquiola) to the very Roman Bulgari hotel brand, which has announced the perfect location for its flagship property in an imposing 1930s building. There are also many notable independent five-star hotels, which will bring new life to the Caput Mundi.”

From the big names to the boltholes, these are the hottest new properties for your next trip to Rome.

The first foray into Italy from Six Senses, this reworked palazzo, steps from the Trevi Fountain and Pantheon, is an on-trend, color-packed refuge of 95 suites. There’s also a signature Six Senses spa, Roman baths, two restaurants, shaded courtyard, and rooftop bar.


ROMEO Napoli has a reputation of being one of Naples’ most design-forward hotels, and now, the group behind the property, The ROMEO Collection, is launching two new addresses, one in Rome and one in Amalfi. Coming autumn 2023, ROMEO Roma will be based in the city’s premiere shopping district, Campo Marzio, in an 80-room historical palazzo, revamped by Zaha Hadid Architect Studio.

Edition Hotels has ambitious plans for expansion, including the introduction of a property in the heart of Rome. The details are vague at the moment (it was originally slated to open in early 2023), but when it does arrive, the first Italian property from the Edition brand will feature 93 rooms and a rooftop swimming pool, which is certainly worth waiting for.

Expected to open in April, the 160-room InterContinental Rome Ambasciatori Palace will occupy a 120-year-old building that once housed the American Embassy Library. The style here is neo-classical-mets-contemporary-cool, with a rooftop bar and an outpost of New York City’s famed Scarpetta restuarant.

Taking over Rome’s landmark Grand Hotel Via Veneto at the end of 2023, the 122-room Nobu Hotel Roma will be created in collaboration with Carlo Acampora, Chairman and CEO Grand Hotel Via Veneto. As Nobu Hospitality’s first foray into the Italian market, the hotel is slated to include a rooftop terrace, spa and—of course—a signature Nobu Restaurant.

Slated to open mid-2023, the Bulgari brand returns to home turf with the launch of their flagship Roman property, centrally located in the Piazza Augusto Imperatore, next to the Mausoleum of Augustus. Housed in a 1930s modernist building of travertine and brick, the hotel will be comprised of 100 rooms and plenty of style.
