Locanda del Montone
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.
A tradition of hospitality
A tradition of hospitality lost in history, first depicted in 1467, and later evoked and passed on by distinguished travellers throughout the centuries. Travellers like Ariosto who entrused his memories to the magic of his poetry, of Sartre who was a frequent along with Simone de Beauvoir.
The retreat and meeting place for emperor and sorceres (visit the junior suites of Frederick III of Hasburg and Cagliostro). A witness to important moments (Mascagni celebrated the premier of Cavalleria Rusticana here). The hotel Sole al Pantheon has remained faithful to its calling - that of gracious inn. Exclusive and intimate, far from the city's chaos and still so very near its richness and its heart. A hotel where the seduction of a suggestive, unique and inimitable ambience is found in every detail. A hotel with pride in a past which the present has brought to many. Or to very few.
