About Us

Palazzo Manfredi is an elegant hideaway in the center of what was once imperial Rome. The charming 17th century palace has spectacular views of the Colosseum, the Forum, and the Domus Aurea, combined with superb hospitality. Built over the ruins of the Ludus Magnus, the gymnasium used by Roman gladiators, Palazzo Manfredi was the hunting pavilion of the Guidi gardens. Today it is tastefully adorned with art ranging from 16th century antique paintings to contemporary pieces. The hotel offers an intimate experience, crowned only by a meal at the hotel’s Aroma restaurant where the unparalleled vistas of ancient Rome are beautifully matched by the culinary delights.

Location - Ludus Magnus

We are right above it. It is part of our very foundations. The Great Game, as the literal translation of Ludus Magnus goes, was the largest and most important of Rome’s gladiatorial schools, and was located beside the Colosseum, connected to the latter by an underground passage.

Commissioned by Diocletian and situated in the valley between the Esquiline and Caelian hills, the building had the typical layout of a barracks with dormitories and amenities on three floors. At the center lay an arena, a smaller-scale reproduction of that of the Colosseum.

1 minute away - Colosseum

Sixty seconds to the Colosseum. Just step out of our hotel, take a few steps, and you’re there, before the largest amphitheatre in the world, the symbol par excellence of Ancient Rome and Italy. Construction was begun by Vespasian in 72 AD and was completed eight years later under the Emperor Titus. The Colosseum's magnificent arena, seating up to 80,000 spectators, was dedicated to gladiatorial games and, because the stage could be “flooded”, was also used re-enact the greatest naval battles. The Colosseum was abandoned after the 6th century, becoming a quarry. Interestingly, the name “Colosseum” originates from the nearby Colossus Neronis, becoming

Restaurant & Bar

At Michelin starred AROMA at Palazzo Manfredi, quintessential Rome is reflected in a menu of classic Italian dishes on a picturesque outdoor terrace offering an unparalleled Colosseum view. At 40 seat restaurant is at once intimate and grandiose, ideal for everything from romantic dinners to private parties.

The Manfredi Fine Hotel Collection’s Palazzo Manfredi in Rome is now home to AROMA Bistro where guests can enjoy a more informal take on the experience offered at the property’s Michelin-starred AROMA Restaurant, at the hands of the same chef. Diners at AROMA Bistro can expect a faster, more laid-back meal, as dishes are less complex and therefore take less time to prepare, making AROMA Bistro an easy stop to work into an itinerary even on busy days.

Best of the Best

Echoes of ancient chariots rise from the Colosseum, which appears within arm’s reach of Hotel Palazzo Manfredi. (A gladiator school once stood outside the hotel’s door.) Yet this 16th-century palazzo dazzles with more than just its jaw-dropping views. The 14 rooms and suites fuse Palladian wallpaper, faux fur, Roman busts and eel skin–topped tables to surprisingly successful effect; windows overlooking the monument are a must. Sip a Bellini in the bar before slipping behind a plate of lobster medallions on the Aroma restaurant terrace. The concierge can arrange private tours with the city’s top guides.

Hotel Tip

Take the house Lamborghini out for a spin; you can even reserve it for a day trip to the Umbrian hill town of Orvieto or the Frascati wine region.

As sumptuous and plush as a mink coat against the skin. The Junior Suite is an embrace offering views of the spectacular Colosseum and its famous gladiator training school, the Ludus Magnus.

Throughout are warm colors and luxurious finishes, from eel skin to velvet to chain mail. The bathroom area is inspired by Roman baths with its luxurious marble and surprising continuity with the surroundings. Once more, the Colosseum looms large through the glass of the shower.

Suite Ludus Magnus

A contemporary residence in the capital of classical antiquity. A space of extraordinary elegance that draws on the history of the Eternal City. The Colosseum arises before you, while at your feet lie the ruins of the ancient gladiatorial school, the famous Ludus Magnus. This is the magnificent Ludus Magnus Suite, composed of a sleeping area with its king-sized bed, a spacious lounge and a sumptuous bathroom. Juxtaposed are ancient splendour and modern furnishings by acclaimed designers. Uniting the opposites are a palette of warm colors and “imperial” finishes from velvet to marble, from wood to fur. The bathroom takes its inspiration from the famous Roman baths. The surroundings blend into one another, with marble as light as a tea tray, the shower a veil of glass from which to admire Rome's splendour in absolute privacy.

Suite Colosseum

Monumental lightness. Such is the style of the splendid Colosseum Suite. Sumptuous in its extraordinary openness and freedom, space extends over different levels, with an astute use of mirrors to infinitely multiplying the views of the Colosseum and the magnificent Oppian Hill gardens. Colors, finishes and fabrics are inspired by the rich translucence of Roman light. Delicate tones give way to the splendor of contemporary design masterpieces by Ingo Maurer, Van Egmond, Philippe Starck and Antonio Citterio. This open space is the height of sophistication, with vibrant and dramatic transitions leading from the lounge to the king-sized bed, and from the bathroom with steam room, shower and chromotherapy to the spectacular wellness area with its mini-gym and whirlpool bath. Never has Rome had a more beautiful space in which to relax.
