In a former 17th century palace positioned in the heart of Rome, and just minutes away from the renowned Spanish Steps and Piazza del Popolo, find Elizabeth Unique Hotel. With an entrance tucked away in a side alleyway ensuring privacy upon arrival, the luxury here begins in the true hospitality and attentiveness from the moment guests step through the door.

After ascending a flight of stairs or in the hotel elevator, you are greeted at the reception with a fresh beverage. Guests here come from all over the world to stay in the Italian capital, and after a long or short journey, the first moment to relax is most impressionable. The hotels double-height ceiling with arched walls and light-filled interior is impressive, it’s hard to imagine a different atmosphere even on a winters day.

As a member of the Design Hotels and under the Marriott hotels global arm, Elizabeth Unique Hotel is an example of a modern, luxury overnight stay. With designer lighting and local contemporary art (selected in partnership with Russo Art Gallery) found throughout the entire space, you are fully immersed in their five-star service.
