Sofitel Rome Refreshes
Jean-Philippe Nuel leads design
Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese has re-opened following a complete redesign by French architect and interior designer Jean-Philippe Nuel.
Situated in a former 19th century Roman palazzo, Nuel has taken inspiration from the building’s original architecture as well as the landscaped gardens of the adjacent Villa Borghese to bring a fresh look with a nature-inspired color palette. Each guestroom in the 78-key property features a Baroque-inspired ceiling that creates the illusion of a blue sky above.
Settimo, a rooftop lounge and restaurant, sits on the seventh floor. Here, executive chef Giuseppe D’Alessio incorporates traditional Roman culinary styles into all the signature dishes. The space features both indoor and outdoor seating. A fitness center rounds out the hotel’s offerings.
