World-renowned architect and interior designers Bruno Moinard and Claire Betaille of 4BI & Associés, together with Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku from Jouin Manku, oversaw the renovation, comprising 98 guestrooms and suites, a new 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 walk from the Spanish Steps and picturesque Villa Borghese, Hotel Eden has reduced the number of rom from 121 to 97, this creating more expansive spaces for guests to relax.
Moinard and Betaille, who were entrusted with the restoration of the lobby, rooms, suites and meeting rooms, designed the spaces to accentuate the beauty of natural light, emphasized further by the high ceilings and tall windows framing Rome’s skyline. Hotel Eden’s top suite, the Bellavista Penthouse Suite, offers unrivalled views of Rome with floor-to-ceiling windows, which can be fully opened.
Spearheaded by award-winning executive Chef Fabio Ciervo, the hotel’s fine-dining restaurant, La Terrazza, is located on the top floor and offers guests views across Rome with a Mediterranean menu using fresh and seasonal produce.
Offering all day dining, Il Giardino Ristorante & Bar is an urban retreat from the city’s crowds. Playing on the natural assets of the hotel’s views, Jouin Manku designed a friendly atmosphere with an abstract “vertical garden.” Il Giardino Ristorante & Bar will offer an array of light, healthy choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner, including a selection of pasta, pizza and cicchetti.
Also, there will be cocktails and signature wines in the bar, as well as a children’s menu and large sharing platters for groups. For guests wishing to inject some mystery and romance, La Libreria plays hosts to a “secret bar” providing classic and innovative cocktails during aperitif time.
Historically a popular choice for meetings, conferences and events, Hotel Eden’s three fully refurbished and equipped meetings rooms have been enhanced to cater to various group sizes and events.
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.
