Bettoja Hotel Mediterraneo

A listed Art Deco hotel in Rome

Nestled in Rome’s historic city center, within walking distance from top tourist destinations, the 4-star Hotel Mediterraneo offers authentic Art Déco hotel accommodation with breathtaking views over Rome. Located in a listed building and distinguished by its 1930’s original décor, Hotel Mediterraneo is the ultimate city retreat.

Designed by Art Deco architect Mario Loreti in 1938, it sits on top of Esquilino Hill, the highest of Rome’s Seven Hills, offering unparalleled views of Rome. The hotel takes its name from the Mediterranean sea, and the marine theme can be admired throughout its 11 floors and 242 rooms. The marble busts of Roman emperors and mosaics depicting the story of Ulysses adorn the hall. The entire interior is dominated by luxurious materials such as wood and marble and the walls are adorned with imposing mosaics. The main hall is completed by a marvelous staircase built with cantilevered blocks of marble - which is still studied by architects today. 

Upon entering the breakfast hall, you will find yourself surrounded by exquisite marine themed decorative elements such as carved oak figureheads depicting tritons and mermaids, while just beyond you will find a stylish bar designed by Loreti featuring an alabaster countertop. This beautifully lit lounge room displays a large parchment map of the Mediterranean Sea and an inlay of precious woods.

Dining

Impressed by the view, delighted by the tastes

Culinary pleasures are at the heart of the travelling experience.  At Hotel Mediterraneo we believe that you cannot deeply discover a culture if you don’t taste the local food.

Enjoy a delicious breakfast in the magnificent Polene Room, or on our rooftop with some of the best views in Rome. Later in the day, sample local wines and delectable light meals in Bar 21- an Art Déco celebration.

Sala Mosaico

The Sala Mosaico takes its name from the imposing mosaic depicting a hunting scene located at the end of the room. Guests staying in Hotel Mediterraneo or Atlantico may choose to have their breakfast here or in the Polene breakfast room included in the price of their room, or for an additional fee guests can enjoy a breakfast with a view up on the 10th floor.
