Palazzo Dama, Rome

Palazzo Dama

Once the preserve of wealthy aristocrats and foreign diplomats, the Palazzo Dama has been converted into a chic and stylish boutique hotel. Downstairs, you’ll find beautiful white and gold detailing in the airy breakfast room, floor to ceiling windows, giant potted palm trees, hardwood floors and sumptuous rugs. In contrast, the dark and luxurious bar area is hung with oil paintings and dominated by a grandiose dark-wood staircase that circles up through the building, lit by a cascade of glittering chandeliers. The Palazzo Dama has a luxuriously intimate feel and is in a great location for exploring Rome.
