The Hoxton has announced the newest hotel in its series, with Rome, Italy opening in autumn 2020. Coming as the 10th hotel from the brand, and the 6th opening in Europe, The Hoxton, Rome will boast 192 bedrooms, a large coffee bar and takeaway counter, a large light-flooded restaurant, and a beautiful outdoor terrace.
The Hoxton, Rome will be situated in Salario, a leafy neighbourhood just north of the centre and well off the city’s main tourist trail, filled with art museums, gourmet delicatessens and traditional trattorias. Here, guests are just a stone’s throw from Villa Borghese, Rome’s favourite park.
Ennismore Design Studio is working in collaboration with Fettle Design to transform the building into a Hoxton, taking cues from the building’s 1970’s design details and the rich local architecture throughout the Eternal City. The team took inspiration from the striking entryways of the buildings in the surrounding neighbourhood and their marble clad walls and vibrant terrazzo floors. The large, bright lobby space will feature a mix of comfortable seating with views of the open kitchen, and a fireplace to keep things cosy during the winter months.
The 192 bedrooms will feature rustic parquet flooring and bold colours, whilst local stones and lacquered timbers will reference classic mid-century Italian design. Each room will feature geometric timber wall panelling, a statement headboard and bespoke brass light fittings. Some of the larger rooms will feature original Murano glass chandeliers.
The Hoxton, Rome comes on the heels of a successful year for The Hoxton, with the openings of The Hoxton, Chicago (April 2019), The Hoxton, Southwark (London; September 2019) and The Hoxton, Downtown LA (October 2019), as well as the expansion of the brand’s co-working space, Working From_.
