Radisson Collection adds a second Rome property


Radisson Hotel Group has opened its fourth property in Rome and the second under its Radisson Collection brand in the Italian capital.

The 84-room Radisson Collection Hotel, Roma Antica Antica is built around the restored Palazzo Lares Permarini, with visitors able to view archaeological remains in the basement of the property.

Radisson said that during the renovation of the palazzo “A fragment of the ancient perimeter wall of the Porticus Minucia from the imperial era was uncovered, allowing for a first-of-its-kind reconstruction”.

Features of the hotel include Carrara marble bathrooms, Fornasetti wallpaper and wooden floors in the bedrooms, as well as all-day dining restaurant Modius, and a rooftop cocktail bar with 360-degree views of the city.

The hotel joins Rome’s Palazzo Montemartini which joined the Radisson Collection in 2018. For our Tried and Tested review of this property.
