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

We just returned from the most incredible 3 week Europe holiday. This hotel was a shocker, the room was ok, but falling apart. The breakfast were disgusting, old, yesterdays food and even rotten canned peaches for me (they were obv from the day or days before). The staff (except the tall doorman) were rude and unfriendly. The Hotel decor is... More

Excellent service for 4 nights stay. Close to the center, a bit loud but not disturbing (this is Italy after all :) ), good food, excellent service, fancy interior. Highly recommended (I traveled in May 2013).

We were one of three couples, traveling together, visiting Rome and we were very pleasantly surprised by this jewel of a hotel. The staff at check in was very helpful and cheery and remained so throughout our three night stay. We had many questions and they never tired in responding. The décor in the lobby was nice and the rooms,... More

This was our second trip to Rome, but probably our 7th to Italy. There were several sites and areas that we still wanted to visit. On our first visit we stayed at a hotel that was some way out of the centre of Rome. We felt that that we had missed out on many things. So last September we booked... More

This hotel was a very nice surprise! I was there for a business trip and I was very pleased with the overall quality of my stay. The room was quite spacious, with enough closet space and all necessary amenities (minibar, shoe polish, snacks, ...). The bathroom was well equipped, with a wide selection of different soaps and shampoos. I had... More

Hotel is as illustrated (and of course better in 3D). Lobby decor is decadent dark chocolate and lush strawberry red. Dark reflective tiles and high ceiling compliment exquisite lighting.Thought style very hip and mature. Rooms have the right custom details which standout from US cookie cutter stylings up to $400/nite (in many markets). Bathtub is as wide as a trough.... More

We have traveled to Rome before and stayed at the Suite Sistina which has since been rate as one of the top ten sexist hotels......unfortunately they do not accept pets and we travel with a small (2.5 kg) dog. So this trip we searched for hotels which would allow pets. Throughout our numerous searches we kept navigating to the Boscolo... More

My 3rd and last stay at Aleph. After a decade, the coolness factor is wearing thin; the trouble with hip hotels is that with time they lose the hipness factor. Apart from the electronics and other signs of showing age, the real disappointment is the service, especially the virtually nonexistent concierge, who when he or she is around, can't be... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Gifted architect Adam D. Tihany becomes a modern-day Virgil as he leads you on an amazing journey filled with heavenly places and sinful delights in his very personal interpretation of Dante's Divine Comedy: the Aleph. In this intriguing hotel near Via Veneto in the heart of Rome, the concepts of Heaven and Hell have been given an unexpected twist. You'll find true paradise in the luxurious Spa below, and surrender to the tempting treats served above in the Sin restaurant and Angelo Bar. Enter the Aleph and you'll be immediately caught up in a red-tinged vortex full of delicious sensations, striking contrasts, stunning details and sensual luxury. ... more   less
