ICONIC HOTEL | Asia Bernardini
“Location is everything. What other hotel offers you the luxury of discovering the symbols of Ancient Rome, within a 0 to 7-minute walking distance? From the Capitoline Hill to the Roman Forum, from the temples of the Latin Pantheon to the first Christian churches, and of course the basilica that is home to one of Michelangelo’s masterpieces.
And may we suggest a viewpoint from which to find your bearings amid such beauty? From the magnificent terrace of our Ristorante Aroma, discover 1,500 years of history before your very eyes”.
Bruno Papaleo – Manager, Palazzo Manfredi. The splendid history of the building that is now Palazzo Manfredi began in the 17th century as the villa of the Evangelisti family, designed by architect Giovanni Battisti Mola.
It then passed to the Venerabile Confraternita della Ss Trinità dei Pellegrini e dei Convalescenti (Venerable Fraternity of the Holy Trinity of Pilgrims and Convalescents), as commemorated by two stones on the façade. The villa was completely rebuilt in the 18th century, becoming a hunting lodge for the noble Guidi family.
In 2002, it was purchased by renowned entrepreneur and construction tycoon Count Goffredo Manfredi, which was a definitive moment for what is today Palazzo Manfredi, a magnificent luxury hotel.
A member of Relais & Chateaux, it is one of two luxurious five-star boutique hotels in the “Manfredi Fine Hotels Collections” – the other being Hotel Punta Tragara – in addition to being an elegant retreat in the center of Rome. The majestic 17th century building has an amazing view of the incomparable skyline over the Coliseum, Roman Forum, and Domus Aurea, and also houses historical paintings from the 16th century and contemporary works by artists such as Ingo Maurer and Van Egmond. It offers the comfort of state-of-the-art technology and an intimate atmosphere in a romantic setting, featuring 12 rooms, 2 suites, and 6 apartments.
It is a hotel in the center of Rome with guests at the center of attention. Everywhere, there is ancient and modern elegance, fitting for a neighbor of the Domus Aurea. Ristorante Aroma, one Michelin Star, provides a luxurious space to relax and savor delicacies on Palazzo Manfredi’s rooftop terrace.
Headed by Chef Giuseppe Di Lorio, it employs a brigade de cuisine that reflects his style with dedication and creativity. It fits well with the sophisticated American Bar, filled with chaise lounges and small lounge areas, ideal for a relaxing break, a quick lunch, a glass of champagne or tasting the best Italian wines.
All of this is surrounded by the beauty of history…our history.
