AX Palazzo Capua has been around for nearly 200 years. The identity of AX Palazzo Capua’s original owners has been accredited to Biagio Tagliaferro, who is said to have built this luxurious villa. Nevertheless, the earliest established resident is cited as being a Russian banker acknowledged to have resided at the villa which was then known as Selma Hall. Undoubtedly this Palazzo is a splendid monument and is considered to be one of the older and premium buildings in Sliema making it a perfect location for warm and friendly accommodation. Today this prestigious Palazzo forms part of AX Hotels. This wonderful building has been carefully reinstated to its former glory.
Looking back to its history, by the 1980’s, AX Palazzo Capua had fallen into disuse and abandonment and when works in its immediate surroundings were being undertaken, authorities had to intervene to stop the complete demolition of the building. It was then that Maltese entrepreneur and the new owner of AX Palazzo Capua, Mr Angelo Xuereb, acknowledged the potential value of restoring this building. Today, the AX Palazzo Capua offers an incomparable experience for those staying here. Its main hall, offers outstanding facilities for receptions and banquets, and provides distinct and prestigious settings for business and social functions. The ambiance of the suites reflects the 19th century charm. This Palazzo has five luxurious suites, four of which are duplex. They are all decorated and designed according to their history and named after the palazzo’s previous owners.
