What I liked:

Fabulous design without being OTT, great customer service and the restaurant was absolutely stunning food and service wise. JUst enough attention without feeling the staff was on top of you.

What the hotel could do better:

They got our breakfast order wrong, but the fault lies in their VERY confusing room service ordering card, not the service itself.

120 Favorite this hotel — to remember it, to save it to your wish list, or simply to express yourself

Hotel Description

Hotel Aleph is not for the faint of heart, or, for that matter, for those delicate souls who are disturbed by the color red. Though this hotel is part of the new wave of chic Italian boutiques, the decor doesn’t exactly fit the standard white-on-white template. The advent of sleek modern design hotels in Rome is something we celebrate — a welcome alternative to the opulence of the old-fashioned palaces. Aleph, thanks to its maximalist design, is an experience all its own, an experience every bit as over-the-top (in its own way) as those grand historical hotels.

The theme here is Dante’s Divine Comedy, or more prosaically, Heaven and Hell — with a decided emphasis on the Hell part of the equation, as, presumably, the damned have more fun. American interior architect Adam Tihany has gone all out — the bar and restaurant are outfitted in black and devilish red, while the spa, in a soothing blue, offers relief in just about every sense.

The guest rooms, newly renovated, are a welcome break from the theme — they’re a blend of contemporary high-end Italian interior design and a more idiosyncratic Thirties and Forties feel. Comfort is key, appointments are rich, and the earth tones and monochromes are soothing after the sensory overload of the trip through hell. Black-and-white photos of Roman street scenes decorate the walls, and bring the whole experience back to earth.
