ROME’S BETTOJA HOTEL GROUP EMBARKS ON
€18M EURO RENOVATION
For more than 140 years, this esteemed, family-run group has elevated hospitality to an art form


Rome, Italy, June 2018 … The Bettoja Hotel group has been welcoming guests to Rome since 1875, when the family first purchased the Massimo D'Azeglio Restaurant near the Termini station, and expanded it into what is now the Hotel Massimo D'Azeglio. In 1895, the neighboring Hotel Mediterraneo and Hotel Atlantico became part of the collection. Today, five generations later, there are 500 rooms among the three hotels, and the Bettojas have once again renewed their commitment to their guests and the hospitality industry by beginning a multimillion-Euro renovation across all hotels.

"The Bettoja tradition,” says President Maurizio Bettoja, “has been handed down for generations, evolving its hospitality according to modern needs. 2018 becomes a new starting point, where the location, the usability and flexibility of our offer are the values ​​of an all-Italian story."
 
The renovation begins with the 245-room Art Deco Hotel Mediterraneo, which is the tallest hotel in the walled city of Rome, and the flagship Bettoja property. The 10-story building evokes the monumental luxury of the 1940s. The first 20 renovated rooms will be ready this summer, and the new, elegant conference center and restored art deco meeting rooms have just been launched, making it ideal for both large events and small workshops. 
 
The more intimate, 65-room Hotel Atlantico, set in an Art Deco building connected to the Mediterraneo, will also be completely renovated. At the cozy, charming Atlantico, children under 12 stay free of charge, making it a popular option for families.
 
The last phase will involve the Hotel Massimo D'Azeglio, which has 185 rooms as well as the Sala Risorgimento and Sala Umberto, popular meeting and event spaces that can welcome 200 guests. At Massimo D'Azeglio, there is a special focus on history, with original paintings from the 1860s Risorgimento (unification) period. The artwork focuses on the historical figures who were part of this movement, such as Massimo D'Azeglio, the hotel’s namesake, who was a statesman, painter and writer. D'Azeglio’s self-portrait and “The Vendetta,” one of his most celebrated paintings, along with a few other drawings are on display, as are other prints, paintings and portraits of 14th-century events and statesmen. The renovation will preserve the hotel’s historical character while modernizing it for comfort and convenience.  “A strong team can take any great plan and turn it into reality,” says General Manager Ciro Verrocchi, adding, “This is what is happening at the Bettoja Collection, and by leveraging our history we are reinventing our future. We strongly believe that our investment plan will take our guests’ experience to a whole new level."

The Bettoja hotels’ location is unbeatable: All three are within walking distance from the Colosseum, Opera House, Forum, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps. The Stazione Termini, convenient for train excursions to Florence or Naples, is a block away. Guests find themselves perfectly situated to explore the Eternal City by metro, bus or on foot.
 
Also at the hotels are two fine restaurants, including Massimo D’Azeglio and the Roof Garden, with an unforgettable city view. The Massimo D’Azeglio also has a wonderful, vaulted wine cellar that can be reserved for private parties. The tradition of good food and warm, personal service has continued through five generations; many of the present staff members are second and even third generation. The family and staff have not wavered from their promise to maintain high standards and offer good value to their guests from around the world.
