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 English. Looking at the table, my great aunt had made breakfast for all of us, and was it delicious! After an hour or so of trying not to laugh while eating, we all went to our rooms and unpacked. My great uncle offered to drive us to our Cooking Class in the city so we all put on some raggedy clothes and got in the car. We arrived at the International Kitchen around 11:15 so we waited in the waiting area until class started at 11:30. We started by making a ...
... literally roman ruins outside the front door and as a view from our hotel window! Decided to go for a quick walk before beer-o-clock to have a look at the ruins from the top street. Got some amazing photos but the weather quickly turned from hot and sunny to black and ominous and as predicted the heavens opened and we got caught. Only Mitch and I had umbrellas so 2 between 6 wasn't really enough. See attached pictures :). ...
... of it. You can look into the night sky and see beauty without understanding it. Anyway, we are the proud owners of a book. We hadn't eaten today so went to a restaurant in the museum about 11.30am. It was quiet in the restaurant we went to - people may have known something we didn't. The restaurant appearance was very functional and the food was on a par with Disneyland - don't eat there if you can eat elsewhere. Though at 17 euro it was a lot cheaper than yesterday's ...
... the tomb of the Lost Soldier. This monument is made of white marble and features majestic stairways and fountains. On both sides there is a statue of Victor Emmanuel riding a Quadrigas. This monument was very controversial and the locals do not like it. Although it won a competition, the locals do not like it! The structure destroyed a large area of Capitoline Hill.
... main train station! We could have just jumped on a train for 4 Euro and been there in half the time. But it wouldn't have been half the adventure :) Looked a bit seedy so we figured it was a great area in daylight and maybe an early dinner and bed was a good thing. Finally got to our room in a little tiny 3 person elevator and talked to the host in sign language till we figured out pretty much all we needed to know. Went for a walk down the street and bought tickets ...
