Hotel Bernini Bristol
Historical elegance in an enchanting Rome location
The recently-restored, 19th century Hotel Bernini Bristol lies in the heart of the Eternal City, with many of the city’s artistic treasures right at the hotel’s doorstep. Located in the splendid Piazza Barberini, with the Baroque Triton fountain just beyond the hotel’s front door, and the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain just around the corner, it would be difficult to imagine a better location in Rome. The five-star Hotel Bernini Bristol maintains the integrity of its 19th century roots, offering a level of taste and sophistication in keeping with its glittering heritage. The surprisingly modernist design of the imposing façade has been sensitively restored, and it is superbly attractive, especially at night by means of skilful lighting. The hotel's modern facilities include recently refurbished bathrooms for the guestrooms, featuring superb marble surfaces.
Upon their arrival, guests are greeted by eighteenth-century tapestries and period furnishings in the hotel lobby, while many of the guest rooms feature classical décor. Some suites are of a more contemporary design for those guests who prefer a more modern aesthetic. The discreet and cozy Bar Bristol is the perfect place in which to enjoy a relaxing cocktail, while The Corallo Breakfast Room offers a wonderfully rich breakfast buffet. Enjoy 360-degree views from the rooftop restaurant, L’Olimpo, which offers excellent Mediterranean and international cuisine. The Bhog Wellness Center offers a range of spa services, including customized massages and Turkish baths. It is no surprise that the hotel has long been a favourite with VIP personalities, including heads of government, and figures from enterprise, the arts and entertainment.

Rooms and Suites
The Hotel Bernini Bristol was designed with an awareness of the importance of design, and of the fact that all clients have their own aesthetic preferences. For this reason, each of the hotel’s room was created with a distinctive and unique decorative style, ranging from classical to modern. All of the hotel’s 127 rooms and suites have remarkable views of Rome, with some having a private balcony. The Presidential Suite offers an incredible view of the city, with a breathtaking vista of St. Peter’s from the suite’s 70-square-metre terrace, on which there is both a Jacuzzi and a solarium. All rooms are generously sized, with all the latest technological equipment such as computer connections, satellite TV, wifi, fridge bar and safe. All suites have a fax machine.
Bhog Wellness Center
In the city in which the thermae once played a central role in terms of both social life and physical health, the Bhog Wellness Center at the Hotel Bernini Bristol has created a spa worthy of the Ancient Romans. The beauty and charm of the Roman baths have been painstakingly recreated, resulting in an elegant full-service spa, designed to provide guests with personalized services which meet the specific needs of all. As well as the individually-programmed beauty treatments and customized massages, guests are invited to enjoy the sauna, Turkish baths and Jacuzzi. Personal trainers are on-hand in the gym to assist with muscular and postural exercises, and also offer customized Pilates programs. Even the most discerning of Roman citizens would be pleased.
