The Capital can now boast a property unique of its kind.
Just a few steps from the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps and Piazza Navona, Palazzo Scanderbeg overlooks the tranquil and picturesque Scanderbeg Square, a secluded and atmospheric corner on the slopes of the Quirinal Hill.
Consisting of eleven Townhouse rooms and grand Suites of different sizes, this luxury property is located in the heart of Rome, just steps from the best shopping streets, theaters, the seats of the institutions, museums and hit restaurants. The Palazzo overlooks a small square that looks like a theatrical setting and projects the guests in the life sometimes vibrant, sometimes sleepy, but always evocative of the Eternal City.
In recent years it was home of the Italian Pasta Museum, but Scanderbeg Palace was originally built in 1466 by the Albanian Prince and King of Epirus Giorgio Castriota known as Scanderbeg, heroic commander who distinguished himself in the long war against the Ottoman expansion in defense of Christianity. For this reason, he was proclaimed “Difensor Fidei” (Defenser of Faith) by Pope Callistus III. His portrait still surmounts the front door.
Thanks to a careful restoration carried out by Lamaro Appalti S.p.A., this ancient noble mansion is the ideal solution for today’s travelers who want a home away from home while enjoying every comfort and high level services.
Today Palazzo Scanderbeg pays tribute to its illustrious past with a contemporary and sober, yet sophisticated style, embellished by wooden floors recovered from antique Venetian mooring poles and high ceilings with exposed beams. The furniture signed Cappellini and Poltrona Frau; the precious suspension lamp by Terzani that lights up the helical-shaped stairs; the Sartori carpets, that mix old Persian rugs in a delicate patchwork; as well as all the other furnishings are examples of that elegant Italian design that exalts craftsmanship also in the most modern style.
“Palazzo Scanderbeg completes our hospitality offer at strategic points of the Roman tourism: the Visconti Palace Hotel near St. Peter’s and the Hotel Capo d’Africa near the Colosseum – says General Manager Giacomo Guzzardi – We definitely focus on what has proved the winning factor for the other two hotels: service. At Palazzo Scanderbeg the guest is pampered beyond expectations, while maintaining privacy and discretion. The concierge assists guests 24 hours a day, satisfying their every desire in an attentive and impeccable manner. Other highly personalized services, such as a butler and a chef-at-home, are available on request. The grand Suites come with a kitchen fully equipped in every detail, from the microwave to the refrigerated wine cellar, including a small selection of complimentary gastronomic products. “
The Palazzo consists of 4 floors and is built around a courtyard where there is a fountain decorated with a decorative gargoyle, from which water flows, a symbol of Italian Mannerism. The building features beautiful terraces, but one of the most sought-after corners is the Library Room where one can chat or read in an armchair by the fireplace. From here one has access to the exclusive Suites, the largest of which measures 166 square meters (1786 square feet). Some of them feature beautiful terraces where to enjoy the mild climate and the incomparable light of the Eternal City.
All Suites are equipped with last generation flat screen TVs, free wi-fi and mini-bar, espresso machines. It is possible to hold video conferences. Courtesy kits are signed by A.C. Bigelow Apothecaries, renowned US brand for cosmetics and body care.
