Rome, Palazzo Cardelli Hotel & Resort

Rome, Palazzo Cardelli

The historic walls and exquisite ceilings of Palazzo Cardelli, located right in the centre of Rome, welcome a house designed for luxury hospitality. Staying in a residence that holds so much history is a unique experience, also thanks to the timelessly elegant proposals by Minotti.

The apartment, spanning approximately 200 sqm, stretches from the main floor, with kitchen and frescoed living room dating back to the period between the late 16th century and the early 17th century, to the rooms obtained from the 19th-century extension designed as independent suites. The fil rouge characterising the renovation work is the delicate balance between respecting the original nature of the residence and the owners' desire to create cosy environments capable of offering a contemporary style much appreciated by an international clientele. The continuous dialogue and attentive listening between new and old has led to the desired result: an unforgettable place of pleasure that frames the timeless taste of the Minotti furnishing pieces.

The entrance leads to the staircase with inlaid marble floors and, looking up, the gaze meets the ceiling decorated with stucco frames. The spacious, bright hallway welcomes guests with the Jensen bergère upholstered in a graphic fabric linked to tradition, and the Kirk Cross coffee table, both designed by Rodolfo Dordoni.

This leads to the living room with a frescoed ceiling, divided in two areas by a low wall chosen so as not to interrupt the view of the ceiling, covered in Petra Antiqua stone. One side hosts the conversation area, furnished with the Torii sofa and armchairs by Nendo, with structural details related to Japanese tradition. These are set alongside the Nay side table, the upholstered Kirk Bench and the sculptural Benson coffee table, characterised by the unusual combination of volumes and fine materials, all designed by Rodolfo Dordoni. On the other side, a relaxation area features the Hamilton seating system, a true timeless Minotti icon, designed by Rodolfo Dordoni.

The living area continues with the kitchen, which originally housed the building's private chapel. Here, white walls and frescoes accommodate the cooking and entertainment areas, with the impressive Toulouse table in the centre accompanied by the upholstered Owens dining little armchairs, both designed by Rodolfo Dordoni.

Finally, the night area, with all the comforts, consisting of three suites, each with en suite bathroom: here the challenge was to avoid concealing the view of the splendid 6-metre-high coffered ceilings. Each bathroom is thus contained in a lowered volume, a kind of magic box within the room. Around the beds and wardrobes, comfortable relaxation areas feature the enveloping Aston armchairs by Rodolfo Dordoni, each one proposed in a different colour, in harmony with the three colour palettes used for the suites.

The uniqueness of a historic residence in the heart of the eternal city, renovated with absolute respect for the original one, meets the constant pursuit of timeless beauty that distinguishes the Minotti proposals, resulting in an impeccable hospitality formula.
