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
NOT WHAT YOU THINK!
Me and my husband stopped here for out honeymoon Christmas last year.over priced rubbish! Paid €70 extra for prosecco and fruit on arrival for the fruit not to be taken away during out stay so we had to go buy bin bags and remove it our selves.on check out we paid an extra €205 for room tax and the prosecco?? Then asking the guy on reception to call us a taxi to the airport did exactly that but to the wrong airport(after showing him the flight details) resulting in us paying €60 to wrong airport then another €90 to the correct one! Not at all 5*
Stayed for 4 nights and this hotel is the perfect location for accessing all the Roman Attractions. The metro station and train station (for the airport) are a short walk away.
Staff here were very helpful and assisted us on a couple of occasions with our questions.
Breakfast wasn't an issue for us and suited us well.
Room has lots of quirky features - iPad to control lighting and air con, tv in the mirror etc.
The hotel provided us with everything we could require for a 4 night stay in the city.
This gorgeous little hotel is a lovely surprise, perfectly located within walking distance to Roman icons but not too close that you feel you are in the centre of touristville! The rooms are spacious and contemporary while maintaining those beautiful classical features,- marble bathroom! Light, bright and airy, the room was supplied with an iPad which operated all the technology and lighting in the room. The wall mirrors doubled as a discreet TV for those who really need it! The bed was very comfortable and an adequate breakfast were served to the room with great coffee, of course! Great cafes and excellent restaurants were also very close by. Service was warm and friendly. We would definitely return to this special find!
In Rome for an evening at the opera in Caracalla, the location of the hotel is perfect, being at walking distance from the site.
Confortable bed and clean....Too bad the room was in a very bad shape, lacking attention to details!
I dont know if the previous guest was so blind to bumb in every corner, but the walls were chipped everywhere, so much so as the soap holder in the shower, not to mention the huge water stain on bathroom ceiling and dead plants outside the windows!
Very disapponting!...I would suggest the owners to invest in some paint tanks and some serious maintenance!!
Had the pleasure of staying in one of the suites at the top floor during your 4 days trip to Rome beg. of July 2018.
What a pleasant surprise as soon as you enter the grounds - can be a bit difficult to find in the middle of the night when we arrived. Feels almost like an oase in the city - very close to metro and Coliseum.
Staff was very friendly and helpful - enjoyed our breakfast outside in the garden - very cozy area with lounge bar during evening. A bit of noise from the street at our room - the room even had its own fountain!!!
WE WILL BE BACK
