Napoleon himself lived in these suites at the Palazzo Ruspoli in 1830, and as you would expect there’s nothing understated about this space. Walk up an antique bust lined stairway to the apartment entrance and pick from two guestroom options, the larger Napoleon Suite or the Garden Suite. It’s a tough call but the Garden Suite does have the advantage of a lavender scented roof garden and panoramic views of the whole city. The Napoleon Suite has three large rooms filled with antiques, floor-to-ceiling original XVI tapestries, hand-stenciled walls…the list goes on. If you’re looking for a completely private, historical and glamorous spot to stay in Rome, this is it. Added bonus: all the products used down to the detergent are organic and non-toxic.
