Since its conception the Ripa Hotel Rome has strived to stand apart from the status quo of Roman hotels. This boutique hotel has always chosen to make a cultural and artistic statement daring to use a modern minimalist style in a classical city. Breathtaking in its simplicity the hotel provides an atmosphere of functional luxury in the suggestive and picturesque Trastevere district. Inside the hotel`s rather ordinary-looking building are rooms where sleek, boldly coloured furniture and lush fabrics pop against neutral walls and floors. Furnishing and décor are kept to a minimum, but you`ll enjoy essentials such as air conditioning, a private bathroom and a satellite TV. Internet access is available too. Some rooms have balconies, while others have terraces. Hotel Ripa stands in the Trastevere district, about 15 minutes` walk from the Trastevere train station. Alternatively, you can take the tram from the station and hop off right in front of the hotel. This same tram will bring you to the city centre where most of the attractions are located. When you`re not sightseeing, get active at the hotel`s on-site gym. When hunger strikes, head to The Suite, the hotel`s uber modern, almost all-white restaurant and treat yourself to delicious Mediterranean and Italian cuisine.
