Rooms

Have you ever heard of bedrooms with such beautiful names? Running off the tongue like poetry, let us introduce you to ‘The ballad of a singing window’, ‘The novel of a platonic tree love’, ‘The anthem of marble’ and ‘The tale of a special child’. These intriguing names nod to a interior design remit of luxurious imagination and elegant style.

With just four rooms and two suites, the hotel is intimate – committed to a high quality of guest experience. Showing urban character as well as upholding the charm of its neoclassical roots, the rooms have original features, high ceilings, shuttered windows, antiques, handmade ceramics and books. Each has its own unique feature: for example ‘Sonnet’ has a marble fireplace and secret door; ‘Anthem’ a balcony and the crowning glory - ‘The ode to the light’ is a modern penthouse with a contemporary layout, metal-framed windows and a private terrace.
