Palazzo Guiderocchi, an architectural heritage in the heart of Ascoli Piceno, has through history been a local despot's dwelling, a chancellor's office, an ecclesiastical court as well as a notarial archive. Today, after a thorough restoration, Palazzo Guiderocchi, a 4 star Boutique Hotel, accommodates its guests offering also an elegant coffee bar and a restaurant “Osteria dei Guiderocchi”.
Palazzo Guiderocchi has been part of the history of Ascoli Piceno, the southermost strip of the Marches at the border to Abruzzo, for at least five centuries. The Palazzo was the dwelling of one of the noble families of the city, a family that ruled as Signori with authority but also with arms and political sternness.
Only a few steps from Palazzo Guiderocchi, in a privileged, central and dominant position, the Residenza dei Capitani with its 9 rooms and mini-flats in modern style, overlooks the social heart of Ascoli Piceno, Piazza del Popolo, and offers glimpses of the rich architectural heritage of the city, from the Church of St. Francesco to the numerous historical buildings from the XVth century.
