The Feroci family bought the building, which took on its present appearance in 1831 thanks to architect Alessandro Gherardesca. The hotel had one hundred and ten rooms.

The hotel Nettuno remained in business until the second half of the twentieth century and is now home to the student house known as Residenza Nettuno.
