Palpatine's apartment was a suite of rooms maintained by Senator Sheev Palpatine which was located in the upper levels of 500 Republica, the most prestigious and exclusive residential tower located in the Senate District of Galactic City on the planet Coruscant. The apartment had majestic views but was modest in comparison to other members of the Galactic Senate. Palpatine had the apartment decorated in hues of red with various unusual art objects and it was wired with discreet security and surveillance equipment. Queen Padmé Amidala of Naboo stayed in the apartment as Palpatine's guest after the Invasion of Naboo.
