Palazzo Ripetta Hotel

A timeless gem in the heart of Rome

by Anthology

An elegant boutique hotel nestled in the heart of Rome, Palazzo Ripetta offers a luxurious retreat for discerning travellers seeking a blend of comfort, sophistication and timeless charm. 

It was built in 1675 as Conservatorio della Divina Provvidenza, and the nuns of St Dorotea provided shelter and education for young girls for almost three centuries. 

In the 1960s, entrepreneur Alberto Ginobbi purchased the building and his family has owned it ever since. The current Managing Director, Giacomo Crisci, is Alberto’s grandson. In recent years, the palazzo has undergone a restyling, and in December 2022, the doors were opened of the first five-star hotel on Via di Ripetta, one of the most beautiful streets in the city.

The grand foyer welcomes guests with its opulent chandeliers and intricately adorned ceilings along with Arnaldo Pomodoro’s Sphere Within Sphere, an icon of Palazzo Ripetta. Throughout the hotel, carefully curated art and antiques enhance the ambience of refined luxury.

Elegant and sophisticated hotel bar

Guests are greeted with warm Italian hospitality, making them feel like cherished friends. Manager Marco Manni and his attentive and courteous staff cater to every need, ensuring a personalised experience.

Each room or suite is a sanctuary of comfort and tranquillity, designed with meticulous attention to detail. They feature exquisite all-Italian materials and fittings, such as luxurious linens, marble accents and plush furnishings, and combine classic style with modern comfort. 

Whether savouring a delicious breakfast in the pretty courtyard, sipping aperitifs at the cocktail bar or enjoying dinner under the Roman sky, guests are treated to a sensory journey that captures the essence of la dolce vita.
