Umiltà 36 is the latest addition to the Shedir Collection portfolio of historical Italian hotels built for the modern traveller.
Opened in August and located just a few steps from the world-renowned Trevi Fountain, the hotel embodies the majesty of Roman architecture via its style, luxury, and refinement. The building has been restored to its original grandeur with a renovation process that lasted over 18 months, led by CaberlonCaroppi Studio.
The architects honed in on the original heights of the ceilings and the ample, single spaces that culminate in the Grand Hall — where the lobby is located — and put a spotlight on the original marble staircase that leads into the upper floors.
The property features 47 rooms, a ‘literary café’ housed in the lobby lounge, a rooftop lounge and bar with unobstructed views of the city, and the on-property Argentinian restaurant, El Porteño.
In addition, Umiltà 36 features an ample meeting room, with a maximum capacity of 30 people, and a modern day gymnasium.
The originality of the style, pretty much untouched by the passage of time, draws inspiration from the elegance of the 1950’s and successfully blends minimalism with warm surfaces and hues, and comfort, achieving the perfect balance between eccentricity and intimacy.
Located at Via Umiltà 36 the 47 accommodations are split into different room categories, suites, and apartments.
The guest journey begins in the Grand Hall that leads into the reception and lobby area and, in turn, to the main restaurant.
There is an impressive, gargantuan marble staircase and the surrounding walls are clad with rich, blue liberty wallpapers which, set against the Gio Ponti-inspired furniture, offers guests an exclusive multi-sensorial experience.
To some degree it looks like a scene prepared for a modelling assignment or a period film set.
The 29 rooms and suites are distributed throughout the first and second floors of the building while the two exclusive suites sit on the top floor, offering a mesmerizing view over Rome.
Furthermore, the property features an additional 18 apartments designed for guests looking for longer and more private stays: the living room spaces open up into a kitchen area, the bathrooms offer rain showers and double sinks, along with a striking marble floor.
Umiltà 36 three different gastronomical experiences: Dandy Café- inspired by the literati society; El Porteño Gourmet- a bold project signed by the Holding Dorrego Company of Fabio Acampora and Argentinian brothers Alejandro and Sebastian Bernardez, and Terrace Flores- overlooking the historical city.
The Terrace Flores cafeteria, lounge bar and tapas bar is a stylized study in indoor-outdoor living and will doubtless become known as the place in central Rome to watch the sunsets fade away through the ancient buildings, invoking a sense of relaxation high above the busy streets of the eternal city.
