The Eternal City is not blessed with a plethora of accommodation options and those that prefer booking big-name brands, finding comfort in knowing exactly what to expect when it comes to service and style by the logo hanging above the entrance, are often disappointed with less than five per cent of the destination’s hotel stock operating under an international name.
But there’s now another option for the brand hounds — especially those that prefer a Hilton property — with Curio Collection opening its first address in the Italian capital.
The Aleph Rome Hotel is an elegant place to stay in the heart of the city, a few blocks from the Spanish Steps and a short cab ride from the main railways station, that boasts 88 guest rooms and a rooftop swimming pool with a magnificent view across the neighbourhood.
The building was constructed in the 1930s, and an extensive renovation was just completed to convert the place to offer five-star luxury, with the work focusing on “blending its Roman charm with contemporary features while preserving its spirit and grandeur”.
Each of the guest rooms, including 14 suites, features modern Italian furniture as well as high ceilings and marble floors with guests enjoying creature comforts like a walk-in shower and interactive television.
“We’re proud to bring Curio Collection to Rome, a city full of classic treasures,” says Curio Collection by Hilton boss Mark Nogal.
“Aleph Rome Hotel — with its historic yet modern charm and prime location — epitomises our commitment to allowing guests to discover and experience distinctive hand-picked properties, each with its own character and story.”
