Grand Hotel de la Minerve *****


Those who have heard of the evocative places of ancient Rome, know where to find Gian Lorenzo Bernini's “Pulcin della Minerva”. Composed of a small obelisk carried by a minute elephant, this sculpture is an exquisite mix of Egyptian crafts and Baroque style.

The Grand Hotel de la Minerve's setting is one of the city's most fascinating squares, located between the Pantheon and the Church of “Santa Maria Sopra Minerva”. In this enchanting setting in the heart of historical Rome, in a prime location close to the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps, rises the Grand Hotel de la Minerve, which has been a hotel since the end of the 1700's.

The five-star deluxe hotel - recently upgraded to better satisfy the needs of its demanding clientele – comes complete with 21st century amenities and offers 135 Rooms including Superior, Deluxe, Junior Suites and Suites. The grand hall is a breathtaking sight for guests visiting the hotel for the first time, as well as for those who visit frequently. A fitness area with cardio-fitness equipment is exclusively available for guest use.

The "La Cesta" Restaurant serves Italian and international cuisine. During the summer months guests may dine in the spectacular “Roof Garden”, from which the Grand Hotel de la Minerve offers an incomparable view. Here a delicious summer dinner is an excellent opportunity to enjoy the day's last light and to delight in one of the spectacular sunsets that only the Roof Garden can offer, to the romantic accompaniment of the notes of a grand piano.

The "Le Cupole" bar, located next to the hall offers guests a wide range of wines and liquors. Seated in this relaxing and discreet setting one's gaze naturally falls upon Rinaldi's magnificent and imposing marble statue of the Minerva, set in the central niche of the hall.
