- The hotel sits near the eastern edge of the historic center, but most major sights are westward
- A city tax of approximately $8 per person, per night, will be collected by the hotel at checkout
- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site

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
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night on a short city break.
The hotel was ideally located for all the key sites in Rome. Our room was spotless and a very good size for a city hotel
What was really special was the super friendly and helpful staff right from the reception staff, the restaurant and bar staff to the extremely helpful concierge Giovanni who gave us an excellent lunch recommendation and got us guided tickets to the Vatican museums at short notice.
It was just a shame the weather wasn’t nice enough to use the top floor pool or we weren’t there long enough to visit the spa - we will have to come back to do those!
We had a lovely stay at this hotel, great service from the staff Carlos at reception was wonderful. The room was great and the location is perfect, close to the Metro, sites and shopping. Breakfast is average, but just visiting to meet the doorman Omar, who is a character is worth it. Highly recommend the hotel, just stay away from the Sky Blu restaurant which serves overpriced poor quality food.
We stayed here for the last night of our honeymoon and it was a wonderful hotel- gorgeous room and bathroom, complimentary espresso, and great staff- will definitely be staying here again next time we come to Rome!
We checked in to the Aleph with absolute ease. The reception team went the extra mile with a private escort to our rooms, full explanation how everything worked and the special parts of this surprising, exception hotel. Our room was quiet and well proportioned with a bathroom suited for two-not a shoe box. Next morning we had a full breakfast with alacarte options-amazing service and the food was incredible. Coffee available in all styles including Soy options. Only a 10-12 minutes direct walk to the Trevi fountain and an ideal location for all things room. Plenty of good restaurants and cafes in walking distance.
Possibly one of the cleanest hotels I’ve ever stayed in!
Ok so it’s newly renovated, but really impeccable. Every member of staff was so friendly, great at languages, a real credit to them.
The bed was very comfortable, the sheets fantastic, air con excellent.
Dinner on the patio at the upstairs restaurant was lovely, however minute portions and expensive.
Terrific location, the downside is the place lacks a bit of character and charm, it’s strangely anodyne, and it’s expensive - per square foot of room it’s definitely very expensive.
I also resent the ‘we are taking another €50 off your card’ when you check in. As a Hilton Silver member don’t you trust me?
Anyway - a good hotel, with outstanding staff.
