Arsenale has started work on Rome’s Orient Express de la Minerve.


Designer Hugo Toro has been entrusted with the furnishing and restyling of the historic hotel by the Arsenale group, in collaboration with Accor.

This will be the group’s first Orient Express (on completion in 2024), with a second property, the Venetian Palazzo Donà Giovannelli, planned for the same brand.

“A time of historical renaissance for the city of Rome”

"The history of a hotel like La Minerva will be given new life with Hugo Toro at a time of general historical renaissance for the city of Rome itself, which will become a focal point for luxury tourism - said Arsenale's head of real estate and construction, Gilda Cotzias. - With La Minerve we inaugurate the first chapter of a project that with the launch of the Dolce Vita Orient Express will unite the country, from the great art cities to small villages, in an integrated and complete luxury offer for millions of foreign travellers who will choose Italy as their first destination."


The hotel’s style will be inspired by the Eternal City

"The first Orient Express Minerva hotel in Rome will be inspired by this city of history and legend," adds the CEO of the Raffles and Orient Express brands, Stephen Alden. " Hugo Toro continues his journey with us. His passion for history, his sensibility and his atmospheric style, imbued with a new contemporaneity, will undoubtedly enhance the world's first Orient Express.”
