        With 170 square metres of floor space, the da Verrazzano Royal Suite, also situated on the piano nobile, is even larger than the de Pepi Presidential Suite. It consists of three rooms. The first is furnished with predominantly dark leather furniture and colorful brocade sofas. A long wooden table sits opposite the white marble fireplace, in front of the three windows which give onto the internal courtyard of the palace. At the second room your eye is immediately drawn to the particularly fine panelled Florentine ceiling, decorated with stuccoes and trefoils. There is also a guest lavatory in this room. The bedroom is the last of the three rooms and looks out onto Via Ghibellina.

            Location, the palace is really nice, fresh nice rooms, nice views on the city and surroundings.

            Corridor is noisy ( no carpets in the corridor ).Contemporary furniture in the common rooms is a bit cheap, one would expect a more opulent interior.

          • Couple
            9.2

            Staff is not as competent as expected. We asked for several recommendations and weren't directed to good places. We spent 4 nights there; on the last day I asked for a late checkout at 2 pm and was met with resistance. Meanwhile the hotel was relatively empty! For such a reputed establishment, extending the checkout shouldn't be such a big deal. Staff was rather disappointing.
