After a few years of uncertainty caused by the pandemic, Rome’s hotel sector has rebounded quite nicely with new openings and development announcements.
Here are a few of the newest hotels in the Eternal City.
Cosmopolita Hotel Rome

Hilton’s 4-star Cosmopolita (no “n”) is the first Tapestry Collection hotel in Rome.

In November, Hilton will open Hilton Rome Eur La Lama, which will have direct access to the EUR convention center La Nuvola.

The signature Bulgari Suite will look out over the newly restored Mausoleum of Emperor Augustus. For drinks and dining, there will be the Bulgari Bar and Il Ristorante – Niko Romito.

Some Recent Openings & Reopenings
Here are some other hotels in Rome that have recently introduced a refresh or a change in brand.
Location: Off Via Veneto
W hotels are known as see-and-be-seen hotels, and the new W Hotel Rome follows that trend with Instagrammable public spaces like its open-air courtyard, rooftop bar, and quirky Sicilian-flavored restaurant and pastry bar Giano. The newest of more than 5-dozen Marriott properties in Italy, the W Hotel Rome has 162 rooms and suites. Another Marriott 5-star, the Pantheon Iconic Rome Hotel, opened near the Pantheon in 2018.
Anantara Palazzo Naiadi
Location: Piazza Repubblica
Occupying an enviable position inside one of the twin buildings of the 19th century Palazzo Esedra, the 5-star Anantara Palazzo Naiadi takes over the hotel formerly known as the Boscolo Exedra Roma. In addition to its 221 guest rooms, 17 suites, and rooftop pool, the property has had an intriguing (and sometimes tragic) relationship with celebrity, including serving as a backdrop for some scenes in the House of Gucci film. This is the first hotel in Italy by the Thai brand, which is well known for its luxury hotels and spas in Asia.
The Tribune Hotel, a JdV by Hyatt Hotel
Location: Near Via Veneto/Villa Borghese
The 52-room Tribune joins nine other chic Hyatt-affiliated hotels in the heart of Rome, including Palazzo Manfredi, Palm Suite, and Hotel Maalot (see below). Tucked away near the Via Veneto, the 4-star Tribune Hotel is a great place to stay to enjoy the nature and jogging trails of Villa Borghese and to be within walking distance of the fabulous Borghese Gallery. Hotel guests and visitors can also take advantage of the hotel’s rooftop bar Terrazza Borghese, which overlooks the sprawling park.
Location: Near Trevi Fountain
This 5-star luxury hotel is housed in the former home of opera composer Gaetano Donizetti!
