Contemporary Roman opulence in an 11-room townhouse with a speakeasy-style bar and an intimate courtyard restaurant
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.
