You'd have to get special permission to sleep much closer to the Colosseum. Even if you could, your stay wouldn't have the 5-star touches of Palazzo Manfredi. Central to some of Rome's top sights, no detail is overlooked with respect to guest satisfaction.
This boutique Relais & Châteaux hotel is big on design. Each room is unique, with one-off designer furniture pieces, and all have free WiFi and flat-screen TVs. A thoughtful pillow menu and memory-foam mattresses ensure a good night's sleep. Some rooms overlook the Colosseum.
Aroma Restaurant has exceptional rooftop views of the Colosseum, which you can also enjoy from the comforts of the American Bar. Breakfast is also taken on the roof terrace.
Every effort is made to make you feel at home. Gym equipment can be brought to your room for private workouts, and loaner iPads and laptops are available if you've left yours at home.
Right across the street is Colle Oppio Park, a pleasant green area on a hot summer's day. Just on the edge of it is Domus Aurea, a Roman villa where Emperor Nero once lived. Colosseo Metro Station is a 10-minute walk.
