Encompassing four floors are 20 tastefully designed rooms, each boasting their unique flair under the masterful touch of local architect Luigi Fragola. The range from the compact, cosy Superiors to the scenic Duomo Rooftop Loft, but the larger, piazza-facing Master Suites are the true hidden gems.

The updated interior blends classic aesthetics with contemporary tastes, featuring rich wood floors, comfy armchairs, luxurious cashmere throws, and unexpected splashes of regal purple and forest green.
