Bella Figura: High-end boutique hotel J.K. Place opens its first site in Rome

Ahlen, August 2014. – The J.K. Place, one of the most prestigious boutique hotels in the world, has now opened a 5-star establishment in the heart of Rome. Located centrally at the Via Condotti, it offers its guests a vibrant city centre atmosphere combined with the private ambiance of a high-end hotel. The rooms of the historic building, which dates back to the 17th century, are furnished with an exceptional sense of style. Equally as much emphasis on exclusive design and superior quality “made in Germany” was applied to the bathrooms of the J.K. Place Roma, which feature baths and enamelled shower surfaces made by Kaldewei.

With its superb city centre location and incorporated J.K. Café, the third opening of the prestigious J.K. Place hotels co-owned and co-founded by Ori Kafri has the potential to develop into a trendy hangout in Italy’s capital. As a member of the “Leading Hotels of the World”, a collection of international luxury hotels, the J.K. Place Roma blends individuality with premium quality at 5-star level. The design of the establishment bears the hallmarks of renowned Italian architect Michele Bönan, who already designed the glamorous J.K. Place Capri and J.K. Place Firenze for Kafri and his partners. Bönan created the new luxury boutique hotel in the old School of Architecture of one of Rome’s universities with great attention to detail. The combination of modern and antique design elements with exclusive works of art makes the hotel a cut above the rest: 30 individually styled rooms and suites with wood panelling and achingly tasteful bathrooms featuring classic Carrara marble are inspired by the pleasures of a sweet life – the “dolce vita”.

Stylish bath interior from Kaldewei offers pure relaxation

The upscale interior of the bathrooms at the J.K. Place Roma feature Classic Duo baths alongside Conoflat shower surfaces made of Kaldewei steel enamel as the perfect basis for a personal retreat. Both designs were created by the Italian design office Sottsass Associati. The Classic Duo bath radiates timeless elegance and comfortable functionality. Two ergonomically shaped backrests make it ideal for sharing in ultimate comfort. The shower areas of the J.K. Place Roma are also appointed with Kaldewei quality products. The Conoflat derives its characteristic design from the central enamelled waste cover, which blends absolutely flush with the shower surface made of Kaldewei steel enamel. Providing equally as comfortable a shower experience with floor-flush access and elegant design, the Superplan and Superplan Plus models integrate harmoniously with the appealing bathroom concept of the boutique hotel.

Kaldewei – bathroom design of the finest

Hoteliers, architects and interior designers worldwide opt for Kaldewei products “made in Germany”, as their perfect synergy of functionality, superior quality, cost effectiveness and premium design have stood the test for decades. All baths, shower trays and enamelled shower surfaces of the premium manufacturer are made of superior Kaldewei steel enamel, a uniquely durable and robust material that shows no signs of wear even after years of intensive use and therefore meets the stringent requirements of a high-end hotel. Along with exceptional hygiene properties, Kaldewei steel enamel also excels in other areas including quick and easy cleaning making chemical detergents unnecessary and steel enamel products the ideal choice for any hotel. Kaldewei as a result provides hotels and investors with product solutions that are both aesthetic and reliable – guaranteed for 30 years.
