Primarily a Hotel
My hotel is the home I was searching for in Rome for a long time. A noble mansion dating back to the late 18th century, Aristocratic for its sophisticated ambience and the uniqueness of its location on the Via del Corso, in the heart of the Eternal City.

Indulging in my love for art and design, I wanted to create an exclusive boutique hotel, a private residence of twelve beautiful suites, each one spacious and peaceful, with a refreshing view over the monument ‘Altare della Patria, Altar of the Fatherland as well as the rooftops of the ancient palaces and residences of the Via del Corso a truly outstanding Avenue.

A myth, the name of this spectacular Avenue which crosses through the historical centre of the city derives from the name of a famous Arabian horse race. That is Rome, a city who lives its past, rewarding a surprise each and every day.
This is my hotel, and from today it is also your home.

I was born into a large family in southern Italy, where only the most sincerest hospitality at all times touched the life of each of us. Warmth and discretion, these are the values which I also extend to my Roman "family" at my hotel, and to you dear guests of Corso 281, you are "my" guests.

For your comfort, both inside and outside the hotel, I have created a new service and called it ‘home assistant’ aimed to fulfill your every desire. I wanted to put at our disposal, my own experience as a "traveller" in the heart of Rome thereby, I am suggesting my favourite itineraries and museums with the paintings most dear to me, together with my favourite restaurants, cafes and boutiques.

It is therefore with simplicity and immense pleasure that I offer to my dearest friends, the best of the Eternal City.

I thought up each suite as a private house which opens onto Rome’s charm. You are the protagonists and we carry out your wishes. From the moment you arrive at the hotel you will be looked after by your home assistant who will show you around and demonstrate each service, and will be at your disposal along with his or her colleagues at the Reception, 24/7.

Do you want to sample the uniqueness of the Roman cuisine at one of its traditional addresses or do prefer to test the latest trendy restaurant? Do you prefer a stroll alongside a famous Archaeologist or an Art historian, or perhaps a ride along the Via Appiaon a Vespa? Would you enjoy a day of high fashion shopping? What about a peek at the city’s most famous antique shops? A ride in a helicopter or do you wish to charter a private yacht for the day going to the beach in the Island of Capri or Ponza?

I will simply open my diary and you will start your vacation.

Library & Vinils

In a space adorned by the arch vault that date back to 1750, you can read your own favorite book or a Rome guide, as vinyl tunes play on our vintage record player.

The Caveau

Here at Corso 281 we appreciate how hectic Rome can get. At one point in the hotel’s long history it served as a bank; in keeping with our commitment to provide you with a home from home, we have replaced the gold of the vault with drinks and a place to call your own.
I want you to feel at ease and the wide choice of liquors, wines and champagne I have personally selected, will give you the feeling you are raiding my home’s drinks cabinet! All we ask is you let us know what you’ve had.
So, whatever time of day you feel the need to escape to your own “vault”, you will find this one fully stocked and waiting for you. There are plenty of vaults with only gold inside, this one holds a treasure for more important: your holiday.
