History and modernity in a former palazzo

Set right in the heart of the city of Rome, on a secluded square behind the Pantheon, the Grand Hotel de la Minerve is a 17th century former palazzo that once belonged to a patrician family. Later it was bought by a French family, and Stendhal stayed there for part of his time in Rome. It was not until the end of the 19th Century, when the papal city became the capital of Italy, that the building changed vocation and its tall facade began to welcome political figures as guests.

The Grand Hotel de la Minerve now belongs to a family from Rome and is part of the Hotel Invest group, which specialises in the luxury hotel business and has other properties throughout Italy.

Blending history and modernity, the hotel has kept its imposing, palatial structure, its vaulted ceilings and huge spaces, while taking on a contemporary look with each successive renovation. The large lobby, created from the palazzo’s former winter garden, has a retro luxury and is impressively large beneath its high glazed roof. The spacious bedrooms were redesigned in 2005. They are resolutely contemporary and play on simple outlines and subtle, warm colours.

The hotel also has four outstanding suites, and a large terrace on the roof. On summer evenings, you can enjoy the mellow lights of the city in truly Roman tranquillity at the piano bar or in the gourmet restaurant, La Cesta. The service is courteous and urbane.

 

The clientele

The only hotel in its category in Rome’s historic centre, the Grand Hotel de la Minerve makes the most of this natural advantage, which its terraces and generous public spaces underline. The hotel is ideal for anyone looking for spacious rooms with contemporary decoration that are welcoming and without ostentation. Visitors will also be charmed by the more retro feel of the public rooms.
