This is one of the featured properties in the article Nine New Places to Stay in Italy that appeared in the August/September 2021 issue of Dream of Italy.
The Hoxton Rome has opened in Parioli, the chic neighborhood within walking distance of Villa Borghese, as the latest location for the British hotel chain known for affordable hospitality with a clubby neighborhood vibe. Retaining the dusty pink façade of the renovated ’70s building it occupies, the hotel become popular with expats as a gathering spot for drinks, making it a good choice for travelers familiar with Rome who want to stay in a new-to-them neighborhood.
The 192 nonsmoking rooms are inspired by mid-century design and classic Italian cinema. Each is slightly different, with timber-wall paneling, parquet floors and statement headboards. Some rooms feature a terrace or Murano glass chandeliers salvaged during the restoration.
The signature Hoxton lobby is bright and open with a sweeping curved coffee bar, local marble and terrazzo and outdoor terrace. It’s home to Cugino, an all-day café and bar run in collaboration with the delicious and popular local bakery Marigold. At the second restaurant, The Beverly, chef Sara Levi oversees a farm-to-table ethos with a West Coast American spirit.
Rates range from 129 to 309€ per night. 39-06-94502700; www.thehoxton.com/rome
