Right around the corner from Piazza del Popolo and the Spanish Steps is one of Rome’s most charming secret hideaways: Residenza di Ripetta. This oasis of peace and tranquility is nestled in one of the capital’s most famous former convents, a stunning 17th century structure that embraces a verdant inner courtyard.
While the parlours, guest rooms and suites are still imbued with the original atmosphere of the old Baroque convent, the extremely elegant furniture give it a grand and luxurious feeling. The ceilings are high and still bear witness to the ancient architecture and art it originally boasted – paintings, statues, precious sculptures and magnificent frescoes that date to the 1600s.
The atmosphere here is truly exclusive, the standards of comfort elevated and the service impeccable and discrete. The marvelous views of the inner garden and the rooftops of Rome have won over the hearts of a select clientele that chooses to stay at the Residenza di Ripetta and consider it their home when they visit the Eternal City.
