Hotel Eden in Rome was one of the first hotels to feature a lift and one of the first hotels to feature electricity, heating and running water for its guests. Nowadays under the ownership and management of Dorchester Collection, Hotel Eden is one of the finest luxury hotels in Italy.
Furthermore, since the 1800’s, Hotel Eden has welcomed heads of state, royalty and leading personalities in the world of science, literature, art and show business; and owns a Golden Book recording many of its most memorable moments in history, including photographs and signature. In fact the great maestro of the screen, film director Federico Fellini, always chose La Terrazza, Hotel Eden’s rooftop Michelin starred restaurant, for his interviews.
In October, Hotel Eden will be celebrating its 130th anniversary since first opening its doors in 1889. To celebrate this historic occasion the hotel has launched a number of new initiatives including a new cocktail, a signature dish and a spa ritual:
Royal Eden: Silvio Favot, the renowned former Bar Manager of the Hotel Eden, created a new recipe for Constantine II of Greece many years ago and the drink immediately became the favourite of the Queen Mother Federica. For a long time the ingredients remained secret, but today Il Giardino Bar unveils this celebratory cocktail created according to the original recipe: based on vodka, dry vermouth, Campari, tonic water and drops of orange bitter.
