HNH Hospitality has announced the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Rome Monti, owned by Reale Immobili, following a refurbishment of the property by THDP.
A stellar team has come together to convert an existing property into a stylish DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in the Eternal City.
A new chapter for the property
DoubleTree by Hilton Rome Monti, fresh from its refurbishment by architecture and interior design studio THDP, is ideally positioned in the Rione Monti neighbourhood, which stretches from Termini Station to Piazza Vittorio.
“We strongly believe it will be an excellent addition to our portfolio, also for the destination,” said Luca Boccato, CEO of HNH Hospitality. “Landing in Rome with such an innovative project makes us very proud. It confirms the quality of our organisation model and logic of multi-brand development, which has allowed us to build expertise over time.”
A stylish new social hub
Altogether, the hotel houses 133 guestrooms, including eight suites, across seven floors. These are complemented by a rooftop bar and panoramic terrace, as well as a bar and cafeteria with an entrance from the lively restaurant Piazza Esquilino, which serves reinterpretations of classic dishes. Additional facilities at the hotel include a modern fitness space and three modular meeting rooms.
In terms of décor, the hotel’s rooms come with a contemporary design inspired by the colours of Rome, pairing modern comfort with vintage Italian charm and natural elements such as earthy wood and stone. This design is enriched with ample natural daylight, reflecting the hotel’s commitment to reducing its environmental and social impact.
Boosting the value of Reale Group’s assets
Alberto Ramella, general director of the property’s owner Reale Immobili, said: “The mission of Reale Immobili is to enhance the value of Reale Group’s real estate assets. We are proud to have reached this objective with such an important Italian hotel operator as HNH Hospitality and with the Hilton brand.
“This operation allows us to strengthen our position in the hotel sector and to diversify our offer in Rome, where we already have other structures. It also allows us to give the city – one of the top destinations for international tourists – an elegant hotel, entirely renovated, which will broaden accommodation offering in our capital, also in anticipation of returning to normality.”
“We are thrilled to partner with HNH Hospitality to open DoubleTree by Hilton Rome Monti,” concluded David Kelly, senior vice president, continental Europe, Hilton. “The hotel has undergone an impressive refurbishment and is the perfect property to introduce DoubleTree by Hilton to Rome – joining five other Hilton brands with a presence in the city.”
