The city of Rome, known for its rich history and cultural heritage, has added a new gem to its list of attractions. Six Senses Rome, located in the UNESCO-protected historic city center, opened its doors on March 16th marking the first urban hotel from the Six Senses luxury hotel group in Italy. The hotel offers guests a peaceful haven in the heart of the Eternal City, taking them on a journey of discovery and community.
Nestled in the Heart of Rome
The hotel is housed in the historical Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini, a treasure trove of wonders that showcases a harmonious blend of classical elements and contemporary sustainable design. From Cocciopesto on the walls to the extensive use of Travertine local stone, the hotel’s 96 guest rooms and suites pay homage to Roman traditions while incorporating state-of-the-art technology. With 12 accommodation categories, including three signature suites, guests can choose from secluded rooms with courtyard views or suites facing the bustling Via del Corso.
A Journey Through History and Sustainability
The Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini holds a rich history, including a large baptismal bath from the fourth century that is now visible beneath the glass floor tiles in the BIVIUM Restaurant-Café-Bar. Six Senses Rome is committed to sustainability, as evidenced by the hotel’s restoration of the adjacent San Marcello al Corso Church, the first sustainability project sponsored by the hotel. Guests can learn more about the hotel’s efforts in the dedicated Earth Lab and participate in interactive talks and workshops.
