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. The 96 rooms in the Aleph, which include 24 deluxe rooms and 6 charming suites and junior suites, are a dramatic combination of eclectic Italian style from the Thirties and Forties and sleek minimalist design. On the walls, large black and white posters by Bram Tihany, a photographer of New York streets, portray special glimpses of "a day in the life of Rome." The Aleph's suite accommodations are dressed up in soothing beige hues. The two full-sized suites include a cozy lounge area which overlooks an outdoor terrace with Jacuzzi. Junior suites have separate "day and night" areas divided by a glass frame. The most modern comforts and the latest technology are the extra special touches that make the Aleph the quintessence of unconventional luxury. In this elegantly austere, contemporary ambiance you can still unleash your fantasy and sing the praises of Rome on the terrace of your private suite, relaxing in the Jacuzzi under the stars.
