Superb luxury option with a charming ornate interior which contrasts the contemporary rooftop bar and restaurant, which have river and city views. Some wellness facilities at the sister hotel, the St Regis, opposite.
In a quiet riverside piazza location with the historic centre accessible via a pleasant riverside walk. Napoleon’s sister stayed here for twenty years and its well-preserved original features add to its charm.
Ideal location and property for discerning couples or individuals wanting a top-class option in a super riverside location in the centre with a both a historic air and quality facilities. Mainly American guests.
In the upmarket district of Ognissanti on the piazza of the same name, with its classy hotels and handsome residential buildings.
