Residenza Napoleone III is superbly located and historic Palazzo, on Rome's legendary Via Condotti, the city's most trendy and chic shopping district, lined with its staples, such as Valentino, Bulgari, Armani, Gucci and Ferragamo. Piazza di Spagna is just a few steps away and many of Rome's most appreciated sights, such as Piazza del Popolo, Piazza Navona, and Campo di Fiori as well as it's sought after restaurant district and visitor favourites are within easy walking distance.

Residenza Napoleone III is one of the most luxurious and unique places to stay in Rome, situated in the XVI century Palazzo Ruspoli, which was built by Bartolomeo Ammannati in the second half of the 16th century for a wealthy Florentine family and later acquired by the Ruspoli family, who still reside in it today. From its inception, the palace has been a place of hospitality hosting ambassadors and used as a meeting place for Europe's high society and place “to see and be seen”. Careful renovation has fully restored the apartment to its original splendour and offers guests the best of a classical Roman Palazzo with all modern conveniences.
In the last few years the apartment has been carefully renovated to its original splendour of its wall hanging, and its paintings have been cleaned and restored.

Residenza Napoleone consists of three magnificent rooms (about 200 sqm each) adorned with original, antique furnishings, massive oil paintings, XVI century tapestries, parquets floors, and hand-stencilled walls.
The apartment is accessed through massive wooden doors and an elegant arcade of Doric columns. A grand, marble, 16th century staircase, lined with antique marble busts of past Roman Emperors, leads up to the entrance.

The Residenza is accessible through the Green Reception room, which is beautifully adorned with oil paintings from the XVI century showing the most picturesque corners in and around Rome and elegantly furnished with antique chairs, sofa and table. The room also features a large fireplace. Breakfast is served daily in the Green Reception on Bulgari Silver. Between the Green Reception and the master bedroom lies the intimate living area also called the Yellow Room, comfortably furnished with sofas and armchairs and equipped with a large satellite plasma TV – ideal for relaxing after a day in the city. The luxurious master bedroom enjoys a large canopied bed draped with beautiful fabrics and silks (bed 1.80 x 1.80 meters). One of the six huge oil paintings in the bedroom forms the headboard while another painting opens to reveal an exquisite marble bathroom. The Residenza also enjoys a large bathroom, small kitchenette, and powder room.
