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.

... then relaxed as I had my very eventful day of Pisa/Chianti the day before. My first real day of Rome (Wed Sept 10) by contrast was quite full of wandering around the city. I first started with a walking tour in the morning which began at the Spanish Steps. Walking past the pillar devoted to Marcus Aurelius, some government buildings and stopping at the Pantheon for a short break I learned about the different architecture in Rome and how much of ...
... then had a look at the Augustus and Trajan forums, then i walked over to the Victor Emmanuel monument. This is a massive wedding cake like structure. On the very top is a viewing point, it
cost money to go up, but it gave a great view of Rome.
After looking at the view i went down and explored the streets of Rome, got caught in a short shower, i had a look at the churches in the area, picked up something for lunch. ...
... corner and see the big "typewriter" building we had seen on the amazing race. It was really beautiful. I swear every time you turn a corner it's another gorgeous thing around here! We walked past some of the ancient ruins to the colosseum... Then we started to hear thunder, uh oh, I know what that means! We immediately regretted not bringing our rain jackets as the sky got darker.... The boys were really excited to see the colosseum come in to view, even though part ...
... architect ultimately committed suicide because of the public’s scorn of his work. We rode through the beautiful grounds of the Villa Borghese, past the American Embassy, to our hotel, The Ambasciatori Palace, a historic building itself.
Too early to check in, we dropped our things with the desk and set out for the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain. The latter site was of particular interest to Sara and Roger because they were not able to see the ...
... inside the Sistine Chapel which was very interesting. We were finally ushered into the Sistine Chapel where we were told, "silencio!" and "No photos!" many times. We left the Sistine Chapel and walked to St. Peter's. We spent the last 45 minutes inside St. Peter's attempting to see everything. Some areas were closed off due to Christmas Eve mass preparations. But the largest church in the world is nothing short of magnificent. The Vatican lived up to everyone's ...
