Stemming from an understanding that true luxury lies in rich experiences rather than objects, Hotel Fortyseven’s ambience is one of indulgence, to be sure, but also a warm and inviting space in the archaeological center of the Eternal City.
Here, away from the myriad sights and sounds of this ancient city, guests find an oasis of peace, where pure relaxation happens in the wellness center, tastebuds are tempted in a sophisticated rooftop restaurant and every imaginable comfort awaits in a variety of guestroom personalities and sizes. Classic, yet understated, contemporary yet with a nod to the history that surrounds it, Hotel Fortyseven is a new Roman masterpiece.
Several room styles await guests of Hotel Fortyseven, each elegantly furnished in a pleasing art deco style and boasting thoughtfully chosen contemporary artwork. The 61 guestrooms and suites include Double Deluxe rooms for those needing more space – perfect for families traveling together – a Junior Suite, with views of the monuments of Via Luigi Petroselli, and the top-floor corner Suites, with private terraces overlooking the Forum Boarium, the Piazza della Bocca della Verità and the Tiber.
One of Hotel Fortyseven’s greatest amenities is its plum location in the historic center of Rome, directly facing popular archaeological sites. However, the treats continue inside, where modern art and signed masterpieces by Rotella, Mastroianni and Mitorai grace the walls. A wellness center and gym boast workout equipment, a sauna and steam bath, and guest rooms feature adjustable air conditioning, a minibar, WiFi access, Nespresso machines or tea facilities, and satellite television.
All of the Eternal City is at guests’ fingertip at Hotel Fortyseven, from the Pantheon and Colosseum, to the Borghese Gallery and the Vatican Museums. St. Peter’s Basilica, the old Jewish Quarter – both for its history and delectable cuisine – and the catacombs are all within easy sightseeing distance. Jaunts farther afield include Hadrian’s Villa, Villa d’Este, Orvieto and Pompeii. The hotel staff is delighted to suggest sightseeing and shopping excursions, including dining recommendations, throughout the city.
When all of Rome’s the stage, a panoramic, rooftop restaurant is just the thing to conjure an evening of romance and intrigue. Hotel Fortyseven woos gourmet-centric guests at Circus, where Chef Giacomo Tasca uses only the best ingredients from local producers to create fresh and light dishes. In colder months, the cozy Giano Lounge Restaurant offers traditional Italian cuisine. Breakfast is a treat, too, with homemade cakes and pastries, organic produce, fresh croissants, Italian meats and cheeses and excellent cappuccino.
Hotel Fortyseven is located halfway between the Circus Maximum and Piazza Venezia on Via Luigi Petroselli. The Colosseum, Forum and Domux Aurea, as well as top shopping and entertainment districts are within walking distance. The Leonardo da Vinci International Airport is a 45 minute drive away.
