Fine dining at Palazzo Manfredi along side a rather famous neighbor
A 17th century hunting lodge makes its own history as a boutique hotel, located a stone's throw from some of the most recognizable architectural landmarks in the world.
Palazzo Manfredi has a very special address in Rome. To say that it is surrounded by history is an understatement, considering its famous (and infamous) neighbors, the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. The Colosseum, built in the first century AD, is still the largest amphitheater in the world. One of the former barracks of the Colosseum, the gymnasium, is now the site of this luxury boutique hotel, Palazzo Manfredi.
Palazzo Manfredi has its own story to tell. The original building was designed by Giovanni Battista Mola and dates to the first half of the 17th century. It was originally designed as a hunting lodge, the Casino Guidi as it adjoins the Guidi Gardens. The hotel is named after Count Manfredi Goldfredo, who restored this delightful architectural treat.
There are 13 rooms and 2 suites, each individually designed, revealing a wide range of period furnishings and finishes set against a neutral background. The atmosphere is upscale modern and eclectic, with classical undertones — a celebration of Italian design. Large groups and families desiring an extended stay can take advantage of the Manfredi Apartments, located a short distance from the hotel.
Aroma Restaurant offers the best seats in the house, literally, as its directly overlooks the Colosseum. Due to the sheer enormity of the Colosseum the setting, is spectacular and dramatic, both by day and by night. Soft colors and earth tones inside the restaurant “frame” the views to the historic monument. Our interpretation is that the use of this color palate is intended to complement and pay homage to the Colosseum and neighboring monuments. Executive Chef Guiseppe Di Lorio has earned Aroma a 5-Star Diamond Award.
