Over two thousand years ago in the same place where today stands the Palazzetto, at the top of the Trinita dei Monti steps, they organized the aristocratic Lucullus’s lavish banquets. The hotel, built in 1500, was for many years the residence of a noble Roman family who chose it as ideal retreat. Fascinated by its prestigious position and its walls with high historical value, in 1999, Roberto E. Wirth, president and general manager of the Hassler Hotel in Rome, bought The Palazzetto and turned it into a cradle of hospitality in the heart of the capital.
The exclusivity of the sixteenth century palace, with its internal structure in Neoclassical style, can be enjoyed from its two panoramic terraces that are home to the wine bar, and in the four hotel rooms, cozy and romantic, at the third and fourth floor of the hotel. Three of the rooms look out right on the steps of Trinita dei Monti. The soft hues of beige and cream give sweetness and class to the spaces, enriched by velvet and satin details to give guests a soft caress.
