Sometimes a hotel’s name really tells most of the story. Here’s a hotel located right by the Spanish Steps, tucked discreetly down an alley yet also in the thick of historic Rome, and it’s packed with wildly colorful contemporary artwork — and it’s called Hotel Art by the Spanish Steps. Score one for truth in advertising.

To be fair, there is a bit more to it. The hotel is not only liberally decorated with art, but takes the spirit of artistic liberty nearly to the extreme. The reception area is housed in a sort of globular plasticized egg, but to reach it you must first pass through a polished marble and cobblestone corridor, modeled after the famous gallery row on Via Margutta, which opens up into a soaring whitewashed lobby built from the bones of a deconsecrated chapel. It’s quite an entrance, to say the least.

After the sensory overload on the streets outside and the design fireworks in the public spaces, the relatively restrained guest rooms provide some welcome contrast. They’re perhaps a bit on the small side (within reason, we think, given the location and the price), but they’re perfectly comfortable nonetheless — bright and contemporary in style, with the proper high technology and attractive touches from parquet floors to handmade leather headboards. In short, it’s a place of complementary contrasts: a wildly futuristic hotel with some simple contemporary rooms, tucked discreetly away in the heart of Rome.
