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. Rather, if guests would like a snack or a drink in their room, the staff will be more than happy to bring it up on request.

A number of the rooms enjoy views across the hillside of the Colle Oppio Park, with its scattered Roman ruins. However, those wishing for a view of the Colosseum should opt for one of the higher level rooms or suites.


The Palazzo Manfredi occupies one of the best positions in Rome. Just steps from the Colosseum and boasting exceptional views of the ancient arena, the hotel is ideally located for exploring the city on foot. The Roman Forum and Piazza Venezia are within a 10 minute walk while the Trevi Fountain and Pantheon are around 25 minutes on foot.

Food and drink

Breakfast is served on the top floor terrace with the Colosseum as the backdrop. It is a buffet affair with an à la carte service available on request. In the evening, there is a lounge area upstairs which serves informal, bistro-style food with views of the Colle Oppio Park. Alternatively, the romantic terrace serves as the dining area for the Michelin starred Aroma Restaurant which overlooks the Colosseum.

Our opinion

A charmingly chic boutique option, the Palazzo Manfredi is easily the best located hotel for views of the Colosseum. With its excellent Michelin starred restaurant, it is not surprising that the terrace has been the setting for over 150 marriage proposals, the view is simply incredible.
