Property Overview

Freshly opened, the new Hotel de la Ville is a dynamic new space at the top of the Spanish Steps. Designers Tommaso Ziffer and Olga Polizzi transformed the 18th century palazzo into Rome’s most vibrant hotel, celebrating the rich tradition, history and luxury of the European Grand Tour in a thoroughly modern way. A lively 18th-century palazzo in a peerless position, Hotel de la Ville both embodies and overlooks life in the Eternal City.
