Big headboards? Check. Murano lamps? Check. An extremely relaxed atmosphere that will keep you lounging in the lobby all afternoon? it has to be someone else Hotel, and this time we are in Rome, Italy. I was kindly invited to spend a couple of nights at The Hoxton’s tenth and most recent opening in the Italian capital, and I’m not one to turn down an excuse for pizza and pasta.
I’ve expressed my love for various Hoxton outposts here before, and enjoy poking around in any of their releases. Until now, I had the weakest point for Williamsburg, but I think I’ve found a Hoxton that takes the top spot. The Hoxton in Rome is a 192-room (although it never feels that big!) day hotel.
On the site of the former Beverley Hills Hotel, The Hoxton has gone to great lengths to repurpose the furnishings and keep the name: have breakfast or lunch at beverly, where you will sit amongst designs created for The Hoxton by local artists. There seems to be a magical light that fills the space no matter what time of day it is. It felt a bit like stepping back into a rose-tinted version of mid-century Rome, aided when you have a cocktail of Cugino hand.
The rooms will be familiar to you if you have stayed at a Hoxton elsewhere in the world. Comfy beds, great rain showers, and a Roberts radio to sing to her as she watches the sunset from her big windows. I loved the details, from the room numbers to the wavy details found on the headboards and coat rack.
There are multiple room categories – we have to poke around in each one, and there’s not much in between, so don’t waste too much time deliberating, unless you’re looking for one of the impressively large terraces. Each is ideal for a city break. I just hope I can come back!
And before I go, do yourself a favor and get the Nutella croissant for breakfast! trust me
PPS- There is currently an offer when you book 2 or more nights you get 20% off larger room categories and €50 to spend in the restaurant!
