THE OLDEST HOTEL IN ROME FROM 1467
Hotel Sole al Pantheon has the blessing of holding a prime location: it stands just in front of the Pantheon in the charming Piazza della Rotonda close to Navona square, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps In the beginning (1467) there was the 'Ram Inn'.
Then came the 'Sun': now Albergo del Sole, one of the oldest hotels in the world was born. A precious piece of antiquity that expert restoration has brought back to its original splendour. An exclusive and intimate hotel far from the city chaos. Quality, courtesy, efficiency and helpfulness are the key-words of the hotel.

SOME PARTICULAR DETAILS
As you enter you are welcomed in an attractive long, narrow lobby with arched ceiling, red-tiled floor, whitewashed walls and a very large, ornately framed antique oil painting over the reception desk. From the lobby, doors lead into the various lounges, which maintain the same elegantly simple, uncluttered look with white walls, white upholstered chairs and sofas, and antique accent pieces. One floor up is the lovely interior garden-patio which opens onto an intimate breakfast room. Look out for the ‘montone’ (mouton, an Alpine goat) who gave his name to the original hotel on this site, founded in 1467. As the symbol of the hotel, his triplet of curled horns peep out from the silver-plated lobby furniture, from lampshades in the bar and on items of furniture in some rooms.
In the summer, the sumptuous breakfast buffet is served on the restaurant's terrace. A Bar with 'Happy Hour' in the early evening and the 'American Bar' till late, offers a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. From the late afternoon, light snacks and refreshments turn the bar into a cozy coffee shop.
