Location

Trevi Fountain and the Palazzo del Quirnale? Two minutes’ walk. The Pantheon and the Spanish Steps? 10 minutes. The Colosseum? A scenic 20 minutes. At Palazzo Scanderbeg, all of Rome is on your doorstep. You’ll have direct access to a history that ranges from the ancient, through the Renaissance, to the Baroque and Art Deco. For others, it’s the gastronomy that delights with some of the finest restaurants the world over to be found in the Italian capital. Whatever your tastes, you’ll be able to grab a slice of la dolce vita here.

Accommodation

Today’s hotel is split between the Townhouse and Suites section, both found in the 15th century Renaissance palazzo that still bears its reclaimed Venetian floorboards. The former features delightfully stylish rooms while the latter offers larger apartments. Here, wonderful exposed beams, views over Piazza Scanderbeg and a range of original architectural detailing hint at the hotel’s rich past while contemporary style shines through. 

Dining

Breakfasts come in the form of buffet offerings, with a range of options available. You can also request to take your meal in the comfort of your room, with the staff known for bringing particularly generous spreads. There’s also the opportunity for a range of cooked-to-order delights – the eggs are particularly good. While there’s no in-house restaurant, you’ll be spoilt for choice for lunches and dinners. Our recommendation is just next door – the Piccolo Arancio. If you’re staying in an apartment, you’ll also have use of self-catering facilities, with the fridge stocked with a number of ingredients.

Facilities

As the hotel is wrapped up in its history, you won’t find plasticising pools and spas grafted on. Instead, this gives us some opportunity to talk about its heritage. George Castriot, known as Scanderbeg, is Albania’s national hero for his crucial role in repelling Ottoman expansionism. His life even inspired a 1718 opera of the same name, from Vivaldi himself. And, although this was his 15th century residence in Rome, subsequent renovations – including an extensive refurbishment in 1843 – has added more modern luxuries to its rooms, detailed above.
