This city hotel takes its name from the founder of the religious institute. After an immaculate restoration, with respect both to the architectural criteria of the Baroque period and of the original project of Borromini, the convent has been transformed into a five-star hotel. The roof garden almost bestows the impression of travelling back in time through the centuries. A fountain, also from the Baroque period, is positioned in the centre. The cloister, the refectory, the entrance and communal areas, all conceived by Borromini recalling classic antiquity and the atmosphere of the Adriana Villa in Tivoli, make the hotel a unique entity in the landscape of Italian hotels. The hotel consists of a total of 78 rooms and suites. Guests are welcomed into a lobby with 24-hour reception and check-out service. Facilities include air conditioning, hotel safe and lift access. Guests can dine in the bar and breakfast room. The hotel is also suitable for business events, featuring conference facilities and WLAN Internet access. Room and laundry services and a car park are also available.
A small architectural jewel in the heart of Rome, this hotel complex is a former 17th century convent, originally designed by Francesco Borromini (1599-1667). A corner of tranquillity in the heart of the Trastevere district, the hotel lies at the foot of the Gianicolo hill, in Via Garibaldi 27. There are numerous restaurants, bars and clubs within walking distance of the hotel. Shopping opportunities and a tourist office are roughly a 20-minute walk away. Leonardo da Vinci International Airport is about 20 km from the hotel.
The cells, which in past times hosted the nuns of the Oblate Agostiniane order, have been developed into the hotel's rooms. Each is presented in its ancient splendour, with exposed wooden beams and antique furniture. There is a synthesis between antique and modern, in which attention to detail and minimalism co-exist. Each room has its own unique characteristics, without a single room being identical to another. The 78 rooms of the hotel provide, particularly at sunset, a scene of rare beauty. From one of the terraces, guests have the impression of dominating the 'Eternal City'. The rooms are en suite with shower, bath and hairdryer. Guests also have the luxury of a double or king-size bed. Amenities include a direct dial telephone, satellite/cable TV, Internet access, safe and minibar. The rooms also come with individually regulated air conditioning and heating.
