Lonely Planet review
The grand old Minerve is one of Rome’s historic hotels. Housed in an austere 17th-century palazzo, it’s been in business since the late 18th century, but owes much of its current look, including the flamboyant Art Deco lobby, to architect Paolo Portoghesi’s 1990 makeover. Rooms vary in size and look. Superior are smart but small, while deluxe are big, classic and classy. Some have original 17th-century wood-beamed ceilings, others have frescoes and four-poster beds. There’s wheelchair access.
