Ambasciatori Palace Hotel, known as “The Ambassadors Palace” (Palazzo degli Ambasciatori) at the beginning of the XXth century because it was built to host diplomats of the nearby Embassies, the Ambasciatori Palace Hotel in Rome is a historical building overlooking via Veneto, one of the most renowned avenues in the world. Via Veneto crosses an ancient estate, transformed after it was bought and remodeled by cardinal Prince Ludovico Ludovisi in the early XVIIth century into one of Romes most splendid and luxurious areas. Now one hundred years old ( more precisely, since 2005), the hotel was built between 1900 and 1905 on plans drawn by the well-known architect Carlo Busiri Vici. Between 1993 and 2001 it has undergone various careful restorations which have modernized the hotel, highlighting at the same time its period decor. The polychrome stucco-work of mouldings, ceilings, arches and capitals may now be seen in its original splendour, as well as the Brazilian granite columns, the marble and mosaic flooring, and the intricate wrought- iron railings of the grand staircase. When you step out of the Ambasciatori into via Veneto another experience awaits you: this pulsating avenue, and its atmosphere, has inspired the famous Fellini film, La dolce vita, and is still nowadays very lively and enjoyable. Actors and writers, but also young people, couples and family groups are attracted to the avenue night and day, as it has something for everybodys taste : elegants shops and boutiques, de luxe hotels, restaurants, music at the Hard Rock Cafe, or comfortable open-air sidewalk Cafes for coffee or a bite to eat.
