The Pinball Luxury Suites
History & Story
We were inspired by the glorious reference of the Italian ocean-liners connecting Italy and NY in the 1960s: they were pure floating museums showing the best Italy could offer in terms of art, design, service and comfort. Our aim is to represent the best Italy can offer in the XXI Century.
We completely refurbished a XV Century Palazzo in the heart of Viterbo, designing 3 large Suites like super comfortable Italian houses where to spend days or weeks.
September 2017. Our CEO and Creative Director personally supervised the work of a team of designers and artisans from every corner in Italy.
Main Strengths, Special Touch
Not only we provide luxury hospitality and tailor-made concierge services, we also represent as official dealers about ten design brands, plus artisans and architects: The Pinball is the only hotel in the world where you can commission a wedding gift list up to the complete renovation or furnishing of your house.
Viterbo lays at the edge between Latium, Tuscany and Umbria. 60 km from Rome, 150 km from Florence, 100 km from Siena. Viterbo boasts the largest and best preserved medieval centre in Europe (XI Century); it’s a thermal city; it hosted the first Conclave in the history of the Catholic Church.
