Good value. Eggs to me is American breakfast , included. Rooms are somewhat weathered. But clean enough. Nice quiet area, slightly off of Via Veneto. Not far from American Embassy. Closest metro is Barberini, though I never used it from there. This last time only stayed 1 night. Staff ok, some friendlier than others. Not overly enthusiastic. Rating 1-10. I would give it a 7, hey I came back
We stayed at Aleph for 10days in July 2015 and were very pleased with hospitality and service of this boutique hotel.
Location of the hotel is excellent- close to Spanish steps, Borghese gardens and Trevi fountain with its great restaurants. Metro station is about 100m away.
Rooms have lovely modern design ( we stayed at renovated suit with two balconies and hardwood floor)
Breakfast buffet was small, but, surprisingly, we could find all we needed: selection of cold cuts, 2-3 sorts of cheese, variety of amazing pastry and fresh fruit.
But the special word deserves the hotel staff – front desk staff speaks English quite well, attentive and made ever effort to accommodate our needs. Special thanks to Chiara and Francesca, the hotel manager. But I especially would like to acknowledge Svetlana whose restaurant service was the highlight of our stay and made the whole experience very positive. Highly recommend
Sevice was extraordinary! I don't remember ever being received with the warmth and the desire to make feel like I was returning home to accommodations I've never been to before. There is no question where I want to stay when I return to Rome!
Made famous by 'La Dolce Vita' film in 1960, the Via Veneto is going through a glamorous renaissance. Bars, restaurants, chic hotels and boutiques all vie for attention in the street which coined the expression 'paparazzo' – the surname of the photojournalist in the film. Nearby, the Spanish Steps are the place for lovers' trysts, shopping, and honing the Italian art of 'dolce far niente' – idling and people-watching.
