SIX SENSES ROME
History & Story
Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini, which Six Senses Rome calls its home, is a historical building dating back as far as the 15th century. It underwent further developments over the following centuries and is named after the prominent families who once lived within its walls. Six Senses Rome has restored the original façade and monumental staircase to their grand origins to preserve the Palazzo’s priceless heritage. The façade of the neighboring church San Marcello al Corso, a fine example of Italian Baroque, has also undergone major renovation works, representing Six Senses Rome’s first sustainability project and commitment to the local community.
Interiors are contemporary in style with sustainable architecture and design accents, featuring imaginative planting, natural light, and breezy open spaces. The concept is the vision of architect Patricia Urquiola, globally renowned for her responsible design development and connecting people emotionally to the spaces around them.
Featuring traditional Cocciopesto plasterwork and locally sourced Travertine limestones, the 96 guest rooms and suites are refined and cozy, with patterns and graphic elements throughout, staying true to the brand’s love of authenticity. With its airy rooms, sun-filled terraces, notably high ceilings, and historic bay windows, the focus is on well-being and a sense of conviviality.

Main Strengths, Special Touch
Location in the hearth of the city center. Pioneering wellness with the latest technologies, sustainability to support local communities and the environment (from the building materials to the food choice til the renovation of the next door church’s facade) and out of the ordinary experiences.
• TREVI FOUNTAIN
• SPANISH STEPS
• PIAZZA VENEZIA
Six Senses Rome enjoys the most desirable location right on Piazza di San Marcello, Via del Corso, steps away from all major historical landmarks including the Trevi Fountain and Pantheon and within walking distance of the prominent luxury shopping streets of Via Condotti, Frattina, and Borgognona. Fiumicino Leonardo Da Vinci Airport is a 45-minute drive away.
One of the highlights is the San Marcello al Corso church’s basement (just next door the hotel) revealed an 8th-century baptism sanctuary (the oldest in Rome) which came to light during some renovation works at the beginning of the last century. Once again, the underground of Rome has revealed its hidden secrets!
The archaeological site is very-well preserved and it includes the remains of a unique, big tub for the immersion rite, some Roman stone plaques as well as the remains of Roman walls (Opus reticulatum).
It is clearly visible within our hotel – the only other way to see it is from the basement of San Marcello al Corso Church

Restaurant and bars
BIVIUM Restaurant-Café-Bar on the ground floor offers a respite for guests and locals, serving modern Italian cuisine with a Roman nod and plenty of plant-based options. The buzzy lifestyle space features an open kitchen, dedicated deli corners, a Josper grill, and a wood-fired oven. It opens out to an elegant terrace, ideal for networking, reading, thinking, or creating. Majestically curated by Executive Chef Nadia Frisina, locally sourced and seasonal ingredients at their peak flavor are the stars of the menu, which showcases best-in-class regional produce.
NOTOS Rooftop specializes in tempting bites and creative sips, surrounded by unparalleled 360-degree panoramic views. The abundance of terracotta pots and aromatic plants offer a secret garden escape unlike anywhere in Rome, whether for sunrise yoga or sunset aperitivo.
Six Senses Spa brings its trademark wellness formula to life while respecting centuries past. It connects international travelers with the local community through the tradition of ancient Roman bathing. The three plunge pools reproduce the calidarium, tepidarium, and frigidarium, reducing inflammation through heat and aiding muscle recovery through a 60-minute journey. A bas-relief inspired by the myth of Daphne and Apollo embellishes the walls, adding pathos and recreating a bygone Roman feel.
Beyond the baths, there’s a Hammam, biohacking and meditation rooms, sauna, outdoor yoga deck, fitness center, and five treatment rooms (one for couples). There’s also the opportunity to learn about the therapeutic power of herbs and plants, guided by a skilled therapist, at the Alchemy Bar.
