A powerful pastiche. In the ground-floor lobby, bar, reception area and breakfast room, black marble floors, cherrywood-paneled walls, scarlet accents and ornately carved and luxuriously upholstered furniture give off a vibe that simultaneously recalls the imperial periods of Rome, France, China and Japan. Upstairs, in the guestrooms and suites, a more maritime, Art Deco look reveals itself, with a blue-and-white color scheme, light wood paneling and such details as nickel-plated hardware, bevel-edged mirrors and Murano glass lighting.
Bed and Bath
Rooms at the Aleph are defined by their high-ceilings and elegance. Sliding wooden panels smartly divide bathroom and bedroom, where kingsize beds jut out from blue leather–upholstered walls. Elsewhere, glass surfaces top white storage-and-desk units, concealing cabinets, drawers and the minibar; a large flat-screen TV and a tall bevel-edged mirror sit just above. In the bathroom tiny blue and white glass tiles cover every surface from floor to ceiling. A glass vanity and sink, toilet and bidet complement a sunken tub-shower combo and the amenities comprise a grand suite of potions.
After a day spent sight-seeing, head for an aperitivo in the ground-floor Lounge Bar which attracts the after-work crowd. The hotel’s interior was inspired by Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy – expect sultry decor and atmospheric lighting. The on-site restaurant serves up gourmet fare and is a great place to people-watch.
How to Get There
This was undoubtedly one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. From the impeccably uniformed gentleman that opens the door to the marvelous fragrance in the lobby, elevators, corridors, to the exemplary way we were received and checked in. The complementary mini bar was an amazing treat, the room was spotlessly clean and the spa area was the perfect way to finish a day walking through the streets in the rain. This hotel will linger on my memory for along time.
We've stayed at hotels all over the world. Up to now the Cape Grace hotel in Cape Town South Africa was #1. The Hilton Aleph Rome Hotel is a real find in a city of multiple hotels. The staff was incredibly kind and attentive. The breakfast was very good and the service was great. We don't usually eat meals in the hotel as they tend to be overpriced and marginal at best. We ate every meal at this hotel and they were all exceptional. Lucio and the rest of the staff in the Sky Blu Rooftop restaurant made us feel like we were at his home. Also the concierge was very helpful as we needed to have some legal documents scanned and emailed. Nothing we needed or asked for was a bother to anyone from the front desk to the housekeeping staff.We've stayed at many hotels in Rome but we've found our favorite both in Rome and anywhere else.
The staff went out of their way to oblige. The food was great. The view from terrace at sunset made for great photos. I would recommend this hotel. Easy walk to shops and restaurants.
The room was comfy and the air con worked fine.
