G-Rough Rome - Ancient Yet Modern Luxury In The Historic Heart Of RomeG-Rough  

Centrally located and just a three-minute walk from Piazza Navona, one of Rome’s most famous squares, this refined 10-suite hotel is set in a townhouse dating back to the 16th century.

Each suite is decorated in a mix of vintage and modern pieces; some suites even have balconies with wonderful city views. Each hotel floor was designed with a specific Italian designer in mind from the early 20th century, from Ico Parisi and Osvaldo Borsani to Silvio Cavatorta and Archimede Seguso.

Curious about the name of this hip hotel? According to Condé Nast Traveller, “G-Rough takes its 'G' from the Starck-designed Venetian sister hotel and its 'Rough' from the decision to strip back the walls and leave them that way - revealing a palimpsest of color layers, fragments of decoration and even a few pencil sketches of uncertain date.”

The G-Rough also offers a few “unconventional” experiences, including the “Unconventional Ride Experience” where guests can explore Rome by Vespa or bike, and the “Unconventional Eco-Picnic in Rome,” where, according to the hotel’s website, guests will enjoy a “magnificent view of Rome and then relax surrounded by the trees and the daisies of Villa Borghese, where a delicious picnic with the freshest products will wait for you.” The hotel’s staff will also provide a golf car to truly deliver on the ‘unconventional’ aspect.

After a day of exploration, grab a drink at the G-Bar, the hotel’s contemporary wine gallery, where travelers will find an array of wine labels selected from small Italian providers. This unique artistic space also hosts a calendar of events, installations, and performances curated by Guendalina Salini, an artist herself, for guests to enjoy.
