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.

... pizza we went to the Spanish Steps. We walked up and down them, then went to the Trevi Fountain. This was covered in scaffolding so we went to the Pantheon, but this was closed for prayers! We walked to the Piazza Navona, a large plaza with 3 big fountains. There were lots of human statues and other buskers. The plaza was really ...
The bust of Julius Cesar is in the Museo Nazionale Romano. This is said to be the most famous bust of Julius Cesar because of how descriptive and fine it is. Julius Cesar played a critical role from turning Rome from a Republic to an Empire. Cesar also in 60 BC along with others formed a political alliance that dominated Roman politics for several years. ...
... and-error bus-it-back to Capitoline Hill
And a visit to one of the National Museums
And a one-man show for an Italian artist
Whose name is lost for the moment
And access to the rooftop patio
At just before sunset
And the light was magical
And worth the price of admission
Enroute back to Santa Maria
We enter a small church
And end up
Viewing the ruins in the basement
We dine at La Poeta
On the way to the Trevi Fountain, it started to rain and we had to get our raincoats out. We came upon the Lindt flagship store and decided to seek refuge there.
Lindt sells a huge variety of chocolate treats, including desserts prepared by a dessert chef, and gelato!
... the Adelaide Oval. We had the most amazing, informative tour which included the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum. So happy we decided on a guided tour instead of doing just a drive by. Another great day, warm and sunny, finished off with a relax at the Bar drinking beer, Spritzer's and eating prosciutto, mozzarella and promo d'oro panini's. I don't think we expected to enjoy Rome as much as we have so far ...
