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 by 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. The property is characterized by modern minimalistic style, evolution and hospitality, original interiors, new colors and innovative materials. Highly professional architects have created an accomplished new design and uplifting style in every part of the structure. The Ripa's Executive Rooms are designed to optimize space, light and comfort and achieve a trendy yet friendly atmosphere: subtle contrasts between new colours and innovative materials provide guests with an instantly fulfilling experience. All of the rooms are equipped with satellite tv, minibar, working desk with sofa and wireless highspeed internet access. The hotel features the elegant Riparte café, a restaurant and bar serving creative Mediterranean cuisine as well as featuring live performances and being a regular exhibition space for photographic and other visual installations. The gym at the Ripa also boasts the latest equipment and is ideal for guests who want to carry on with their fitness regime; a personal trainer provides workouts tailored to individual needs. The Trastevere district on the left bank of river Tiber is the heart of Roman nightlife and is rich in pubs, clubs and restaurants. Its very well connected by the Number 8 tram (and Number 8 nightbus) which runs close to the Pantheon, and is even within walking distance from the most important monuments of the city. Some of the most interesting sites in Trastevere include the Church of Santa Maria (with impressive golden ceiling mosaics) and the Church of Santa Cecilia. Probably the most recommended thing to do is to get lost in its narrow and winding cobble streets, full of delights that have to be found by chance.
