In short, if you want a 5 star experience, look elsewhere. The hotel was poorly maintained, our room had ripped carpet, mold in the bathroom throughout, the mosaic tiles were broken, the sheets were motel quality and the pillows provided were horrific. There were two places in the mattress where a spring was poking through, I would give this hotel... More

The thing as an American that I had to get used to while traveling in Rome is that is an ancient city and the hotel rating systems are a bit different than what we are used to here in the US. If you're looking for the old "charm" of historical feeling rooms then this is nt the place for you.... More

After reviewing our options, we realized that Rome hotels are somewhat overpriced. We booked Boscolo Aleph on otel.com at a slightly lower rate than most other travel sites advertise at nearly $300/per night. For that rate, I expected to find an upscale, modern hotel. but instead I found aging lodging unworthy of the paid rate. I will let the photos... More

I have stayed here a three times on business trips and almost all experiences were sub standard. The Aleph is part of the Boscolo chain and was clearly designed to be a bit different however the decor is tired, out of date and shabby rooms don't help, especially if you are paying five star prices! One room had mosaic tiles... More

This hotel was very nice and well priced. The problem was that while everything WAS walking distance, some of the distances were very long. In addition, our ship docked early. They did offer us coffee, but I had a minor argument to get a renovated room . We had reserved the room about 8 months ago and been promised a... More

Boscolo is synonym with quality, elegance, highest standard and this hotel is the perfect example of it. The room are spacious and well decorated, the breakfast is generous and the common area are perfect to enjoy a drink with guests or friends. The location is central but far from the crowds and noise.

The renovated room was modern and large with good lighting. Room 313 had no view though. Lobby is stark modern with fewv amenities. Front desk staff was very nice, but when we arrived before check in time (our ship docked early in the morning) they did not offer us anytghing (like a juice or lemonade). The area is a little...

Central location, 15 minutes away from Fontana Di Trevi and Piazza D' Spagna. Kind front desk staff, free upgrade to deluxe room made the difference. Deluxe room lacked the luxury of a real 5*, and definitely the class of Boscolo Exedra. Had effective air condition and good toiletries variety. Trust the rest of tripAdvisor reviews and Do Not Have Breakfast... More

The Aleph is located in a very great location, just a block away from Barbieri square (with a metro line) and walking distance to the Trevi fountain and Spanish steps. The staff at the hotel was great, and the lobby and main areas are very well decorated. The room is not huge but I wouldn't describe it as small either,... More

My first stay at a Boscolo and I was pleasantly surprised, very nice furniture and style throughout. The Location was excellent surrounded by fabulous restaurants and on a quiet street. The rooms are well kitted, not huge but comfortable. The gym is underground and together with the spa area feels quite tired. There is a nice roof terrace which is... More
