Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Alpi Rome
Alpi is OK
We stayed at Alpi our last leg of our honeymoon. the hotel was close to the train but a little hard to find. the lobby was very nice w/ fresh flowers. service was ok - not rude, but not friendly. we did get an upgrade to a nice superior room on the top floor w/ balcony, sitting area and jacuzzi tub w/o shower. the tub OK, but would've preferred a shower. the housekeeping service was pretty good i thought. on our second night, the hotel was having problems w/ water and we almost didn't have any! i guess with old buildings these things can happen. no problems with noise. Breakfast was decent - cappuccino's not very good though. we would probably stay here again, but would prefer something closer in.
The hotel room we had was on the ground floor just off the lobby. It was a small, dark box of a room with no character. The official Alpi website give the impression that this is a much more beautiful place than it is. The shower drain kept stopping up and we had to have it fixed both days we were there due to overflowing. Although waking distance to the train station, it's far away from everything else. Overall, we were disappointed.
When you pay for superior, you expect better
The Alpi is located about three blocks from Termini, which was convienent but load due to the traffic. We had a room with a balcony on the third floor (room 371), and experienced some traffic noise. We tried to block some of the traffic noise with the airconditioner, which did not was not operating and was needed even in early May. The breakfast was typical. The staff was not friendly, but not rude. The room was clean, and we enjoyed the "hot tub," which is really a bathtub with a few water jets. Service was substandard, with the staff failing to restock the bathroom or to respond to my complaint about the airconditioning. I know what to expect from a three-star in Rome: not much. However, I payed extra for a "superior" room and left wondering what was the extra I payed for. Overall, I would not go back to the Alpi as there are better deals to be had in Rome.

... in the plaza was stumbling upon a Valentino fashion show. I channeled the energy of one of my best friends and fashionistas, Erin, and was enthralled with what was happening before us. After, we headed for the Trevi fountain, again, continuing to get lost in the curving streets of Rome. When we finally arrive, we are filled with frustration and swear words upon the sight of the Trevi fountain, which has been drained and fenced off for renovations. All it meant to ...
... at the pub and a really ****** 80's disco that they had at the hotel. Jordan and I definitely drank our fair share and are feeling a bit sorry for ourselves on the bus this morning. I absolutely loved Rome and would love to go back. I just love Italy altogether. It is definitely one of the top places. Sorry for the long entry but we fit a lot into two days and I am trying not too miss anything. Now on to Florence which is our last stop in Italy before we go to France. Love to you all ...
... of the present basilica, replacing the Old St. Peter's Basilica of the 4th century AD, began on 18 April 1506 and was completed on 18 November 1626. St. Peter's is famous as a place of pilgrimage, for its liturgical functions. Because of its location in the Vatican, the Pope presides at a number of services throughout the year, drawing audiences of 15,000 to over 80,000 people, either within the Vatican Basilica, or in St. Peter's Square. The Roman ...
... to the Steps. There were so many people in the streets (and on the steps) - the weather was beautiful so who could blame them. We did see many people drinking and climbing in (bathing) the fountain in front of the Spanish steps. Then we moved on to the Trevi fountain. It is under complete restoration, so you have to use your imagination and cannot throw the coin in...but we were there. A bit more souvenir shopping and then back to the hotel. The ...
... br> On their last day in Rome we attended the gladiator school near the Colosseum. Surprisingly it turned out to be very fun and educational. I became a gladiatrix and fought our trainer with an actual metal sword. It was like and old fashioned boot camp to becoming the ultimate fighter. Of course I was the winner of the Wegscheid family.
The next weekend we all traveled to Venice, Italy. Walking those winding streets was more difficult than you would expect ...
