The Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese has reopened following a complete redesign by French architect and interior designer Jean-Philippe Nuel.

Situated in a former 19th century Roman palazzo, the property was inspired by the building's original architecture, as well as the landscaped gardens of the adjacent Villa Borghese.

With the renovation, each of the guestrooms now have a Baroque-inspired ceiling that creates the illusion of a blue sky above, as well as a signature Sofitel MyBed bed and marble bathroom complete with Hermès toiletries.

The hotel's Prestige Suites, some with private terraces, have luxury amenities including leather key card holders, a choice of room fragrance and monogrammed pillowcases.

The crown jewel of the hotel, situated on the seventh floor and offering panoramic views of The Eternal City, is Settimo, a rooftop lounge and restaurant with bold interiors and both indoor and outdoor seating. It is helmed by executive chef Giuseppe D'Alessio.

The 78-room hotel is located in the center of the city, near iconic landmarks including the Villa Medici, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps. Edoardo Giuntoli is the hotel's GM.
