Palazzo Dama is the latest addition to Rome’s elegant, boutique hotel portfolio. The venue is located just steps from the busy Piazza del Popolo, the Spanish Steps, and gardens of Villa Borghese. This former private villa was owned by the Malaspina family, and named after former resident Anna Maria Malaspina, an 18th century Marquise and writer. However, the villa has been turned into a 30-room hotel complete with a secluded leafy garden scented with olive and lemon trees and unusually for Rome, a petite outdoor pool.
The Palazzo Dama boutique hotel is constructed near the banks of the Tiber River and in past served as backdrop to high society gatherings for diplomats, aristocrats, and prominent cultural figures. Now, the hotel welcomes guests to experience Rome in a majestic, full-service villa with five-star luxury facilities that offer a wide range of services, spaces and experiences for guests to enjoy their stays in Italy’s capital city.
Reimagined by Italian architect and hotelier Antonio Girardi, the interiors of the Palazzo Dama feature beautifully appointed, light-filled spots decorated with crystal chandeliers blended with mid-century sofas, crisp white linens, historic mosaics, crown molding, and carved-wood balustrades with clean-lined Italian furnishings and lavish Loro Piana fabrics. Neapolitan architect has preserved the original Art Nouveau doors, wooden staircase and marble mosaics in the reception area.
The Palazzo Dama offers unrivaled dining experience at restaurant L’autry Dame, which serves a health-conscious menu of juices and raw dishes in a glamorous white-panelled room with brass accents, antique Persian carpets and tall palms, and
the roof terrace, which is an ideal spot for enjoying the views across the cupolas of Rome while enjoying a glass of wine.
