The Deluxe category rooms all have a story intertwined with the palace's ancient intrigues. They are all different from one another, we invite you to ask our staff about their story. All the basic equipment of the Eitch are in the room, but our customers choose them because they are embellished with some superb floral frescoes, some for the presence of the original panelling, witnesses of centuries of conspiracies of the Roman nobility, others with secret passages that they led out of the building to enter and exit the palace protected from prying eyes.
The history of the building is not only linked to the figure of Pope Innocent X Pamphilj, who wanted its construction, but also to Donna Olimpia Maidalchini, popularly known as "La Pimpaccia" who filled the seventeenth-century Roman chronicles with her extravagant personality.
Ambitious, she went from her modest origins to the Roman patriciate, marrying Pamphilio, brother of the future Pope. He dedicated his life to Innocent X whom she maneuvered, together with the Holy Court as she pleased, going down in history as "The Papess".
Heedless of the gossips, who called her the Pope's lover, she exploited her privileged position throughout her existence by amassing wealth with cunning, threats and subterfuge. Despite her bad reputation, she should be recognised for the important role she played in the Pamphilj factories, so much so that tradition wants her to direct the construction of the building where the Eitch Borromini is located today. If you appreciate your room, you now know who to credit some of the merit.
