Set in an early-20th-century villa in Rome’s Aventine district, the Corner is a hip 11-room hotel designed by local architect Danilo Maglio. The look is modern day Roman opulence, with refreshingly bold colors and high-tech touches. Each room has amenities controlled by an iPad Mini, and elaborate features, whether it’s a dramatic cast iron bathtub, a private atrium with city views or, in the attic suite, a private balcony Jacuzzi. There are two eating options: Bistreet, which serves fare that gives a nod to Italian street food on its terrace, and the Restaurant, for more of a fine dining experience. Sneak down to the indulgent basement club through the secret passage, which is behind an old-fashioned telephone booth, to end the evening in style.
In the Area
Plan well: There is so much to see in this neighborhood. A 10-minute walk from the Corner is the legendary Colosseum. Ten minutes more and you reach the ruins of the Roman Forum, a little more and you find the Trevi Fountain. The Vatican City is a little farther — you can take the metro from Manzoni, a short way from the hotel. After all that sightseeing you deserve a gelato. Try Il Gelato di San Crispino for a classic Italian ice cream.
How to Get There
Would recommend this great hotel 100%.
The rooms are really beautifully designed with panelling and a lovely wooden floor. The neighbourhood is quite nice and only 10 minutes walk from the Colloseum.
Most importantly the front desk staff were amazing, helping me with all my queries.
Would definitely stay here again and in fact I hope I do.
The hotel is near the coliseum and the building is nice, but overall impression is let down by not taking care of the property. Our room had mold smell and there was dust across the property. It also need a good paint.
We enjoyed our stay here, the restaurant outside the front of this spot is really unique and fun. We found the food and wine very affordable.
The room was nice, it’s a good idea not to open the curtains if you aren’t dressed appropriately, there was a table setting that could see into our room clearly.
The young woman at the desk was very nice, helpful and accommodating, we will definitely go back.
