Un simbolo di una futura nostalgia


Sospinto dalla storia nella modernità romana. Un nuovo lifestyle hotel a Roma.
Cardo Roma è un paradiso di ospitalità che controlla e padroneggia il connubio tra elementi apparentemente opposti. La notte ed il giorno, il lavoro ed il gioco, la storia e la modernità si uniscono e fondono come una cosa sola.
Il giorno - sol in Latino - ci porta il generoso sole italiano, una spa per ricaricarsi, o vibrazioni "up-tempo-business".
La luna - luna in Latino - dipinge le strade romane con tenerezza e gustosa unione.
Costruito sui fondamenti della cultura occidentale l’hotel è antico ma mai fuori moda. Come l'alta moda italiana, il servizio è buono come ai tempi dei romani, le esperienze soddisfano gli standard moderni.
Nessun problema, Cardo Roma vi farà sentire esattamente come a casa.
Benvenuti nella nostra Grande Famiglia!
