In the ancient heart of Rome, only a short stroll away from the Spanish Steps and the exclusive shopping district, the hotel stands in a small street that leads to the Tiber river, anciently called Vicolo del Melangolo. The revived historic mansion dates back to the mid-sixteenth century when it was known as the "House annexed to Palazzo Borghese”.
Today, "The house annexed to the Borghese Palace" is reborn after a careful and attentive restoration which reinstates and recreates its ancient splendor. Most of its sunny wide windows offer a breathtaking view of the private garden of Palazzo Borghese, which in 1997 won the Sotheby's award for best restoration.
The atmosphere of the 18 rooms, suites and Adelaide bar and restaurant, are characterized by an Art Deco yet contemporary feeling is also given by an sophisticated and original choice of decor. The hotel in fact offers both open and intimate spaces, with a style that is inspired by the past. Inspiration is taken from the Art Deco period for its eclectic character which is also worldly and international. A reminder of the elegance of the 50’s enriched by the inspiration in the wallpapers inspired by the 60’s and even a daring and unusual combination of articles from the 70’s all live harmoniously together.
