This is a beautiful historical 7 floored light cream building built in 1880.

A big revolving door leads to the reception area, small sized. The lobby is small but tastefully decorated and furnished in anelegant style. It is enriched by a huge and impressive 'Murano' chandelier, a cream coloured sofa, few other pieces of furniture which dominate the whole lobby, giving to the area a stylish and welcoming look, and old pictures.

With it's reputation for exclusivity and excellence, awarded with a Michelin star, the Splendide Royal boasts one of the most elegant "gourmet terraces" in Rome. The Mirabelle, an exclusive meeting point among the Italian and International "Bel Mondo", is considered to be among the very best restaurants in the city, directed with the class and undisputed professionalism of Bruno Borghesi.
The restaurant is located on the hotel's 7th floor, where huge glass terrace doors open out onto a view of breathtaking beauty: a panorama which sweeps across the city from the 19th century palaces of Pinciano, Villa Medici, Trinità dei Monti all the way to Saint Peter's and to the Gianicolo. Eyes but also taste buds are rewarded during what is an undeniably unique dining experience, thanks to the culinary skills of Giuseppe Sestito, Executive Chef, whose talents have been refined in various occasions spent working in prestigious establishments abroad.
