Palazzo Scanderbeg Rome

Location

Palazzo Scanderbeg’s place is merely a backstreet away from the hordes of tourists flocking into the Trevi Fountain, also in walking distance of these not-to-miss monuments such as Pantheon and Forum, and museums such as Galleria Barberini and Galleria Colonna. A bonus is its close proximity to Metro A stop Barberini that means getting to Vatican City is just a one-way trip.

Design & personality

An upmarket urban hideaway with fashion simplicity which feels more private members’ club than hotel. Over the entrance doorway, in which black-suited attendants with ear bits screen environment, is a fresco portrait of palazzo patron Albanian national hero Skanderbeg, giving sign into the Palazzo’s 500-year-history. The Renaissance-style floor level is a spacious reception and sitting area decorated in light colors, and with modern furniture and artwork.

Service & centers

Palazzo Scanderbeg is basically a luxury home of private flats. There is no fitness center or spa, however employees concentrate their efforts on adapting every one of your needs — if that be reserving a session with an onsite fitness expert or cooking up the ideal amatriciana pasta to consume in your area. The 3 Master suites have full time Butler support for all, while the remaining suites and rooms can depend on the 24/7 concierge.

Rooms

All of the 11 suites and rooms include piazza-facing windows, bathing the light-grey colored rooms with stunning morning sunshine. Townhouse suites and rooms are comparable mixtures of simple and tasteful: Poltrona Frau chaises, Capellini divan couches, contemporary oriental rugs, museum-worth lamps and lighting fittings, and modern art. Rooms show off the palazzo’s lovely original 16th-century details like exposed wood beam ceilings and refurbished parquet flooring. Baths are white palaces with liberally accommodating showers. The Vintage and Master Suites have two bedrooms, multi-bath, living rooms and Granite counters, while others Master Suites have the extra bonus of terraces and hammams. For the entire private encounter, the bi-level Annex apartment has its own entry, separate from the principal building.

Food & beverage

All guests have a mild room service, however Palazzo Scanderbeg is fast to supply any craving which isn’t in the free mini bar (Suites minibars include boxed cereals, bottled beverages, chopped bread, yogurt, nutella, and a choice of coffee and tea). Exotic guests enjoy a continental buffet breakfast (fruit, pastries, cured meats, and hot beverages and freshly squeezed fruit juices upon petition) from the Morning space, whilst Package guests have a mild à la carte menu and also select from three curated menus of omelettes, fruit juices, cheese platters, salmon and treated meat served in space. For guests at Master Suites, your butler will cook and current breakfast on your kitchen. Personally, I enjoyed the Be Scanderbeg menu — champagne, omelette, java, freshly squeezed juice, cheese dish and ciambellone, Italian breakfast cake.
