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
After spending 3 days in Florence, and a short time in Cortona (Tuscany) we found our way Aleph Rome Hotel. Our Room is great, facilities are clean, modern, and high end! In our opinion, the employees will always make the difference between good and great. And that was the case at Aleph! Every employee we encountered was friendly, professional, and well trained. We don’t know Rome well and we’re hoping the staff would be able to help us. We travel often and have high standards. Aleph staff exceeded all our expectations! Guest relations employees Marta, Anastasia and David were very helpful.
But One employee in particular stood out above all others. Her name is HANEN, who found the very best restaurants for us, arranged for a special private tour of the Vatican, and gave us many tips to make our trip very special!
Thanks to everyone at Aleph, especially HANEN! We shall return.
Finding a hotel with a comfortable bed was our top concern for our first stop in Roma after the long trip from California, and layover in London. We anticipated jetlag, and we knew there would be miles of walking around on tours and exploring, so the first three nights would be important to be comfy.
We were extremely happy when arriving at midnight the front desk happily let us know they had been expecting our late check-in. They gave us a map of all of the sites nearby, and were extremely welcoming.
Thankfully, when we reached the room, the bed was soft, the room quiet and dark, and we had a perfect night of sleep to hit the cobblestones running the next morning.
We grabbed breakfast there, with a slight mixup about whether it was included in the room (a bit pricey, and we found it was not included afterwards).
You are situated right by the Spanish Steps, and an easy walk from the Pantheon, and Trevi Fountain. We visited them in the evening and daytime, just to enjoy both.
We had some lovely recommendations for meals nearby that we otherwise would have missed on little side streets, and it really set the tone for a great start to our trip. Grazie!
Nice hotel. Staff is a bit pretentious. Our American breakfast was good, with spotty service. Adequate clean room and bathroom, though shower/bath is quite awkward to enter and exit. Rooftop bar was enjoyable on a pretty evening but no view.
When traveling to Rome, finding a place that you can come back to and relax after a long day of walking and sightseeing is a must. The Aleph Hotel is one of the newer luxury hotels in Rome, but we did not come across any mishaps or inconveniences. They went above and beyond!
Converted into a luxury hotel from a bank, the Aleph hotel is a part of the Curio Collection by Hilton. The staff are top notch, and you can find yourself gazing at the architecture and interior design of the newly renovated hotel.
When we arrived, checkin was seamless, and our bags were taken up to our room happily by the bellhop. We had a Prestige King Room with a Terrace, and it was fantastic. We were greeted with decadent chocolates and a fruit basket. The room had the comfiest King bed, a pillow menu, USB charger outlets, and complimentary mini bar drinks. The only thing I thought was missing in the room were some comfy spa robes.
When you plan to stay at this hotel, I highly recommend getting a room with a terrace. It is very large, might even be bigger than the room, and has two loungers, a couch, and a swinging bed. It is no surprise that when you come to Rome, you will pretty much walk everywhere. So, coming back to your hotel room and having a glass of wine on the terrace at night is what sets this hotel apart.
The location of the Aleph is very ideal, as it close to most of the major attractions: Trevi, Piazza Navona, The Spanish Steps etc. The Colosseum is about a 30 minute walk. It is also very close to Villa Borghese and the beautiful gardens. If you don’t want to walk all over, it is also close to the metro, maybe 3 minute walk.
What I really liked about this hotel is there is a rooftop pool and lounge area. Not many hotels in Rome have pools and this one is perfect for relaxing mid-day in the hot sun before fun evening excursions around town. They also have a hotel restaurant near the rooftop pool which had wonderful food. I recommend the pasta dishes, and the delicious prosecco!
Overall, the Aleph is a great choice for a luxurious and relaxing trip to Roma!
Accommodations were first class! This is an absolutely beautiful hotel with fantastic, service oriented staff. One of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. You have to walk a couple of blocks to get to the restaurants but it's worth it.
