Housed in a 16th-century palazzo, this hotel enjoys some of Rome’s most spectacular views, directly onto the Colosseum and the parasol pines of the Colle Oppio. It’s also a short walk to the Forum, Palatine, and Circus Maximus.

Its 12 rooms, two suites and seven grand view suites preserve the palace’s original marbles. Its roof boasts one of the city’s top gourmet restaurants.

All in all, it’s an unbeatable package for an immediate immersion into the unique splendour that is Rome – whether it’s your first or tenth visit.

Surrounding area

The hotel stands on a busy thoroughfare lined with modern and historic buildings, overlooking the ancient Ludus Magnus (gladiator’s gym) and the Colosseum.

The Colosseo metro station and a stop on the hop-on hop-off tourist bus are close by, and the buzzing district of Monti, with restaurants, bars and shops, is a 10-minute walk.
