HOTEL ETICO ROME

A Truly Unique Hotel in Rome
The Albergo Etico Rome is the first hotel of any kind in this beautiful and magical city to be entirely staffed by people with Down’s Syndrome and to specialise in (although not limited exclusively to) providing high quality accommodation to people with all types of disabilities. Occupying a former convent in a prize location of the Eternal City close to Piazza del Popolo, Pincio and Villa Borghese as well as the Metro system, our very special, unique hotel promises an accommodation experience like no other.

Hotel Etico Rome

The concept for the Hotel Etico (which translates as Ethical Hotel in English) was born by chance in the lesser known Italian city of Asti in the famous wine-making region of Piedmont, when a very inspirational young man with Down’s Syndrome began an internship in a restaurant. Such was the ripple effect of his journey that it provided the spark for the Academy of Independence - a three-year training and work program which gives young people with Down’s Syndrome the opportunity to learn the restaurant and hospitality trade with hands-on experience, working and living together with their peers independently of carers, assistants or educators. And now Hotel Etico is in the capital.

ROOMS

The Hotel Etico in Rome has a range of 17 double rooms for every type of guest and all rooms are en suite with climate control and free wi-fi as well as everything else you’d expect from a fine quality city centre hotel. Moreover, each room is fully equipped to support the needs of guests with a range of disabilities.

RESTAURANT

At the heart of the concept of the Hotel Etico is the restaurant trade - this is where the Academy of Independence was born back in 2009 in Asti. Since then the dream has blossomed and the gastronomic results of investing in the disabled make for an eye-opening experience, proving that people with disabilities comprise a highly untapped resource of ingenuity and productivity.
