Iberostar Fontana di Trevi set to open in 2019

TORONTO — Iberostar says the opening of its first hotel in Rome, set for 2019, is the latest step in its strategy to boost its city hotels segment.

Situated in the heart of the Italian capital in a historic building next to Rome’s most famous fountain, and just off Via del Corso, the Iberostar Fontana di Trevi will open next year with five-star status following renovation work.

The hotel is housed in a six storey 19th century building that combines Renaissance and Neo-Renaissance style elements, according to reports. In addition to the 67 rooms and a wide range of exclusive services, the hotel will also feature a “spectacular” rooftop terrace – the perfect venue for admiring Rome’s skyline, says Iberostar.

The inclusion of the Iberostar Fontana di Trevi in Rome brings the number of properties in the company’s city hotel portfolio to 10, joining those located in New York, Miami, Lisbon, Havana, Madrid, Barcelona and Budapest.

It also represents a further move forward in its city hotels expansion strategy, designed to boost the company’s presence in the world’s leading tourist capitals with hotels offering prime central locations that reflect the authenticity and charm of the cities they are located in, providing guests with unique experiences.

Says Aurelio Vázquez, the Iberostar Group’s Chief Operations Officer: “We are really excited about this new project. Rome is one of the top international destinations attracting both business and leisure travellers, and Iberostar Fontana di Trevi is designed as a boutique hotel tailored to cater for both types of guest. The building is truly unique and boasts a matchless location, and we are working hard to offer first class services and facilities that will guarantee guests a memorable stay with us in Rome.”
