Histroy of Il Palazzo With Aldo Rossi - The time with Art "architecture"

From Designer's hotel to "Hotel of designing TIME"

Maestro Aldo Rossi, one of the architects in 20th century, designed the first building in Japan is "Hotel Il Palazzo".
It attracted worldwide attention as Japan's first design hotel 22 years ago.
"Il Palazzo" means "Palace". On the left and right side of the palace, it has a small separate building, which imagines a town.
A powerful facade using Iranian red travertine which is representing "palace" will welcomes you.
Il Palazzo was awarded the first AIA honor award in history from the American Architects Association (AIA) in 1991 as a non-domestic building.
In the same year, we also received the Fukuoka City Landscape Award.
In order to provide guests with more satisfaction than ever,
In July 2009, Hotel Il Palazzo reborn as "Hotel of designing TIME" as a concept.
While being in the city center, we are pursuing a true small luxury by incorporating the delicate hospitality of a luxury inn that emphasizes privacy.
