Bottom Line

The luxurious Hotel de Russie is located in a posh neighborhood near the Spanish Steps and Piazza del Popolo. This 122-room property combines style and comfort, starting in the cozy lobby with plush sofas and appealing artwork. Bright rooms feature tasteful, modern decor and marble bathrooms. Suites provide extra living space, as well as French doors leading out to small private balconies. Highlights at this upscale hotel include the on-site spa -- with hammock-like loungers, a big Jacuzzi pool, and Turkish steam bath -- and an interior courtyard with a beautiful terrace and gardens. Le Jardin de Russie is a sophisticated place to dine, and the buffet-style Stravinskji Bar provides trendy lounge seating. Location, amenities, and the lush garden in the middle of Rome make this hotel a great high-end pick.

Location

In the heart of Rome near Piazza del Popolo and the Spanish Steps

Map of Rocco Forte Hotel de Russie

The hotel has an excellent location within walking distance of the Spanish Steps, though it's a bit far from some of Rome's more ancient sights, such as the Pantheon and the Colosseum.

The neighborhood around Piazza Popolo and the Spanish Steps is one the most upscale in Rome, with high-end shops, restaurants, and hotels, and of course, plenty of sightseeing opportunities. Piazza Popolo is one the of city's largest squares and is a popular spot for strolling, and sipping coffee at the local cafes; the scene becomes even more lively at night when the numerous bars open their doors.

One of the most iconic places in Rome, the Spanish Steps (all 135 of them) are a popular meeting spot for tourists and Romans alike. Built in the early 18th century to demonstrate the union between France and Spain (French funds paid for their construction), the Spanish Steps are the starting point of several fashionable streets, such as Via Condotti, lined by luxurious shops and gourmet restaurants.
