All the rooms at the Palazzo Manfredi feature a host of modern design elements, from statement lamps and mirrors to stylish mixes of paint and wallpaper. Each room stylishly incorporates amenities such as espresso machines and high quality modern bath fittings. In keeping with the boutique nature of the hotel, there are no mini-bars in the rooms.
