Residenza Napoleone III
The Residenza Napoleone III, located on bustling Via Condotti, has been fully restored to its 1830's splendor. The hotel offers two apartment options: the Napoleone Suite and the Roof Garden Suite. The Napoleone Suite has three rooms: the dining room with silk wallpaper and 16th century tapestries; the yellow drawing room with antique pots of jasmines; and the bedroom with six oil paintings of pastoral ancient Rome, antiques, and a silk-draped canopy bed. The Roof Garden Suite is accessible by spiral staircase; its decor is more modern and simple, but it offers a terrace with views of the Spanish Steps. The building is in fact still lived in by Princess Letizia Ruspoli, who is effectively your innkeeper, though her second-in-command, Beatrice Ziello, sees to most of the details of your stay.
