The prestigious Hotel Splendide Royal is located in the ancient heart of Rome, a short stroll from the Via Veneto. This stunning luxury hotel perfectly reflects the elegant, sophisticated style of the Italian capital. The former residence of the Roman Maronites underwent renovations that lasted more than a year to transform the 19th-century building into the unique hotel we know today. The resulting hotel is without a doubt one of the finest examples of Roman hospitality. The hotel offers an elegant interpretation of the lines and furnishings that once adorned the patrician villas of the Roman nobility in the late 17th century. On the walls, pale wood panelling highlights the warm tones of the brocades, while a wealth of gold stuccowork and mirrors reflect the soft natural lighting cast by the domed ceiling in the lobby – a sumptuous recreation of the ornate Baroque style. The Hotel Splendide Royal is favoured by an illustrious Italian and international clientele who appreciate the luxurious style and spacious feel, which is in great contrast to the minimalist décor and conservative sizing of many modern hotels. The magnificent structure, exclusive artworks and period furnishings, such as the famous Murano glass chandelier Luchino Visconti used for the ball scene in The Leopard, which rains glittering light down on the lobby, all contribute to making the hotel the flagship of Italian hospitality.
The Hotel Splendide Royal distinguishes itself from other luxury hotels in Rome with its elegantly decorated rooms, graceful lines and generous spaces. The Italian Baroque style has been adapted so that each room has its own unique blend of period elements and modern design. In harmony with its surroundings, the Hotel Splendide Royal’s service is always attentive and discreet, so guests can relax while dining or celebrating a special occasion in one of the most beautiful areas of the ancient city.

The bygone elegance has been groomed to the very last detail. The hotel is in perfect harmony with its surroundings and offers guests an environment where they can relax, dine or celebrate an important occasion in one of the most beautiful and suggestive locations in Rome.
