    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Alexandra Rome

    Great location and friendly staff

    from

    I stayed here in February 2004 for a weekend touring in Rome. This is an excellent location for seeing sights. If you want to take tours, they will pick you up right from the hotel. There are numerous, excellent restaurants near the hotel. The ones right beside it are excellent. The hotel is in walking distance to the Trevi Fountain and Spanish steps. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The desk clerk spent about half an hour just help us to find tours to maximize our weekend there. The breakfast is not so great. Its mostly continental with some meats and cheese. You won't care about that in Rome though.

    The room was small, just enough space for the bed in our room. The pictures on the web must be of suites. The bath had been remodeled and everything was nice and clean. I highly recommend this hotel.

    Excellent location

    from

    I booked our trip to Rome as part of a European football break through a company called matchdays formy husbands Christmas present. Therefore I didn't choose the hotel we would be staying in. However when matchdays informed me that the hotel was the Hotel Alexandra I immediately looked it up on the internet and I was pleasantly surprised and looking forward to our trip. However the rooms that are pictured on the site must be luxury rooms and not the standard as our room was MUCH smaller than those pictured. On the way to the hotel from the airport our taxi driver told us the hotel was in an exclusive area (he wasn't wrong, there is a lamborghini garage across the street) and the hotel was an excellent choice. It certainly looked it as we pulled up outside. However we had to wait two and a half hours before we were given our room key. Can you imagine after an early morning start and a flight to arrive at a hotel and have that length of wait? The worst of it was they kept telling us it would be another 20 minutes and then another 10 minutes and so on so we felt like they were fobbing us off. The only excuse Iwas given was that the maid was making the bed. As we were only in Rome for 48 hours I felt like asking if I couldmake the bed myself so we could start our holiday. Once in the room I was disappointed with the size of it but my husband wasn't so I guess that I just wanted everything perfect as it was my gift to him. The bathroom was very modern and the room was clean. The shower was hot too. The window had lovely quaint shutters lookingout on what I thought was a lovely view of the street. Overall the staff were very friendly and the concierge even sent up a bellboy with a corkscrew for us to cork the bottle of wine we had bought elsewhere (there isn't a bar in the hotel) Breakfast was fine although scrambled eggs were stone cold. On the whole we had an enjoyable experience but I wouldn't go back until they had sorted out their check-in procedure.

    Conenience and comfort!

    from

    We stayed at the Hotel Alexandra for 4 nights in February, 2004. The hotel is a good value considering its location on the Via Veneto. The hotel is well positioned for exploring Rome. The Barberini subway station is a few yards away and several restaurants and cafes are just outside the hotel (although some are pricey). Also, the US Embassy is across the street.

    The rooms are clean and comfortable and standard size (ours had a balcony). The staff are very cordial and helpful. The included breakfast was standard European, but did offer scrambled eggs. For great cappuccino and coffee, the Cafe Paris is right up the streeet.

    Everything said, I would recommend this hotel and I would certainly stay here again. You can't beat the price for the location and area.

    Hospitality plus!!!

    I recently spent 3 nights at the Alexandra Hotel with my daughter. This was our first trip to Italy and we chose this hotel for it's quaint size and location. We were more than pleased with everything and more important EVERYONE. The entire staff was extremely accommodating from tour planning for us to keeping the breakfast room open a little later than supposed to to accommodate some early jetlag. I have only great things so say and great memories.

    Rome on Business

    from

    Five of us stayed at the Hotel Alexandra on a business trip in November 2003. The rooms were fine, clean etc. but we had to wait 4 hours to get into them. We arrived on an overnight flight from Boston and didn't expect we would get checked in too early, but it was mid afternoon before we got our keys and we had been promised only an hour or two wait at most. The breakfast was just horrible. We had better luck just down the street at an outdoor cafe.

    Get Location! Not so good food!

    from

    The hotel alexandra has a fabulous location and is perfect for site seeing etc. It is in a lovely wide tree lined street - with cafes and other hotels dotted along the street. It is perfect for exploring by foot as we found that we could walk from the hotel to most spots and was close to the spanish steps and trevi fountain etc. The eateries are a little more expensive though around the street so its best to opt for something a little futher away. The rooms were comfortable and had all the normal facilities and were clean and the staff on reception very helpful and friendly. The only down side we found was the breakfast served in the morning. It wasnt quite up to the standard we had expected and we were a bit disappointed, but found all the other things about the hotel outweight it so we would proabbly stay again.

    Great location, High quality hotel.

    from

    This hotel was a pleasure to visit. They arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport. (Four adults). The rooms were large for an inner city hotel, with excellent bathrooms. Big bath, good shower.

    Great location for the sights. Trevi fountain, Spanish steps very close. Also there is a Metro just down the road which is very useful.

    Restaurants & Bars just outside. As always for Italy, excellent food!!

    They arranged for a taxi to take us back to the airport and the holiday was complete!!

    The only downsides were the view from the room which understandably overlooked other hotels.

    Just one other point, the hotel, in my opinion is unsuitable for disabled people due to the entrance hall stairs. There is a lift after this to the floors but there is still several stairs following this.

    Don't let this put you off otherwise as the hotel is great. I will be going again.

    Great hotel!

    from

    Excellent location. Stayed in a recently renovated room with wonderful marble bath and jet spray shower. Great value for price - would stay here again.

    Vatican City Here We Come

    ... anyone without a second thought. Back at the metro we found the workers went on strike. Can you believe it. We heard that happens often. So we walked back toward the Tigre River and found the totally awesome Castel St Angelo. From the Vatican there is a very tall wall all the way around Rome. The section of wall from the Vatican to the Castel St Angelo had a secret way out for the Pope in case the Vatican was attacked. It was originally ...

    ... pasta all carbonara for B and Michael. Delicioso! We had so-so service from the main waiter, but the server was so good to us, and the owner came out, saw our boys and immediately showed us a picture of his grandsons of similar age. Lemoncello for digestion, and we were off! Back to the room, and we are all showering off this hot day, blogging, checking photos, and writing in journals. The kids each have a daily journal to write it to keep track of all the fun. Buona notte from ...

    ... tickets for 25 euro each. We were issued a paper voucher and Craig noted it was for 40 euro. When he questioned it, it was explained that the vendor takes 5 euro commission on each ticket. But we figured it must be legitimate given its location at St Peters church. We were given a map on how to get there and told it's a 15 minute walk and to bypass the queue. The person also suggested we make a bee line for the Sistene Chapel as there are many kilometres of walking in ...

    So finally we get to head off. Ooops....driver had forgotten to put our addresses into his GPS. No problem, easy to do on the highway. He's the caring, sharing type and is happy to have a little bit of this lane and a little bit of that lane and he's staying at least an inch clear of the big cement dividers that stop him from sharing the lane with oncoming traffic as well. All the other drivers thanking him by tooting as they took whatever ...

    ... reflect their original appearance with statues, tapestries, antique furniture and paintings of the period. One of the first rooms one visits is the theatre, set up in the mid-1700s and today still displaying its original architectural features. It is difficult to imagine another building with so much gold [presumably paint rather than leaf] on display. In something less grand, the opulence might be obscene; in the Palazzo Reale it fits in perfectly and ...
