About the Location

The hotel is in the heart of Rome, with the Colosseum around 200m away. In ancient Rome, the area had 4 barracks, accommodation and a training school for gladiators just a few metres away. It is a very busy and popular part of town - ideally located for roaming ancient sights, but also fairly touristy. Parco del Celio is a 5-10 minute walk away and Villa Celimontana, a delightful and hidden public garden, is a 10-minute walk away. The Basilica of San Clemente is 5 minutes away, and older children will like exploring the hidden ancient rooms buried deep beneath it. Roma Termini train station is a 10-minute taxi ride away. Rome Leonardo da Vinci Airport and Ciampino airport are both 30-45 minutes away by taxi. The hotel can arrange private transfers on request. Car rental not recommended: much of the city can be seen on foot from this location and there are plentiful taxis.

Combining the best of modern luxury (not to mention the highly regarded restaurant at the top), this hotel has fine furnishings and finishes from marble and velvet to wood and fur. At the heart of what once was imperial Rome, this 17th century palace overlooks the Colosseum, the Forum, and the Domus Aurea and is built on the ruins of the Ludus Magnus, the gymnasium used by Roman gladiators.

Palazzo Manfredi R.
Member since November 13, 2017
Our origins are ancient, just look at our neighbours. In ancient Rome, just a few metres from where the superb Palazzo Manfredi boutique hotel now stands, were four barracks, accommodations and a training school for gladiators fighting in the Colosseum. In 1937, the remains of the largest gladiatorial school were discovered, the Ludus Magnus, located at the foot of our hotel. Twenty years later, an archaeological dig was started, finishing in 1961. The splendid building of the Palazzo Manfredi began life in the 17th century as the villa of the Evangelisti family, designed by architect Giovanni Battista 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 the two stones on the façade. The villa was completely rebuilt in the 18th century, becoming the hunting lodge of the noble Guidi family and, from 1748, this area was known as “Giardino Guidi”. In 2002, the villa was purchased by Count Goffredo Manfredi, one of Italy’s most famous entrepreneurs and construction magnates and, thanks to him, Palazzo Manfredi, our superb luxury hotel, was born. In commemoration of the past, and of the distinction of the noble Manfredi family, you can still read today two Latin inscriptions on the turret, “Fortuna duce”, with fortune as guide, and “Virtute Comite”, with virtue as companion, quoting Cicerone’s famous maxim.
