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.

... up (sorry, the lift just broke! - again reminiscent of my first night in Paris 12 years ago!)....a double bed after 2 singles requested and promised.....broken showerhead (it's ok, just hold it above your head).... no mirror in the room, but please don't spend time doing hair and makeup in the bathroom as others may need it.....don't flush the toilet after 11pm (easy, it doesn't work before 11pm anyway!). Can't wait for the email from the Homestay website asking us for a ...
This morning we weren't quite sure what we wanted to see today, nothing really planned.David found a place to visit in the lonely Planet Guide, the Capuchin Crypt. The Capuchin Monks would exhume remains of deceased Friars and place them in a crypt below the church. The bones are arranged in patterns that they like to refer to as Capuch Art. It was all a bit creepy for me and at the door of the crypt I simply couldn't bring myself to go in. The boys went ...
... choose to share an entree and then have a dessert. Looking through the menu we found a delicious sounding entree that was a Crostini di patate con zucchine, provola affumicata e tartufo nero (potato bake with smoked cheese,zucchinii and black truffles) We couldn't resist not trying a truffle dish so we choose that, and it was absolutely fabulous. It was so rich and velvety and the combination of smoked cheese and black truffles went down ...
... to see gorgeous panoramic views over the Vatican City and surrounding Rome. After Vatican City we wound our way through beautiful cobbled streets to the Fountain of Trevi. The fountain was packed full of tourists like us, but still well worth the trip. We tossed coins in, took the obligatory photos and moved on to get out of the raging 30 degree sun and have some gelato (a local tells us the store we visited sells the best gelato in the city and I'm inclined ...
Well, Rome is not cooler! We got here for the hottest days of the year, and are acclimating to 35 degree weather. We are staying in a tiny little apartment in an area of the city called Trastevere. Just figured out how to say it properly. :). It is a cute little maze of cobbled alleys that really comes to life at night, for tourists and locals alike. At 10 am, nothing is open and it's empty. At 10 pm, all the stores are open and there are people all over drinking in the streets. Of ...
