Boscolo Aleph Roma
City Chic

Heaven and hell have a place on earth at this 96-room hotel in central Rome. Behind a traditional Renaissance stone façade are five sleek and often provocative floors designed by celebrated architect Adam D. Tihany. Public spaces are divided into "Paradise" and "Hell." Red lights and scarlet furnishings indicate the naughty area—the bar, the decadent restaurant—while the spa, which puts a contemporary spin on the ancient Roman baths, is set in "Paradise." Accommodations mix Deco furnishings, high-tech amenities and eye-catching photos of daily Roman life (shot by a famed New York street photographer) to create a vibe that's unlike anything found in Rome's traditionally gilded five-star hotel scene.
