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.

... and nearly every major historic part of Rome. We stopped for lunch and then kept going to Vatican City. Sadly, I did not see the Pope, but I was so happy to see the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica! Okay, so I went to Catholic High School, and I think it's fair to say that I'm not a model Catholic, but these two places are seriously breathtaking. I don't know how else to describe ...
... 1400 names of those whose bodies were never identified. The setting is immaculately kept, with crosses for Christians and markers topped with the Star of David for Jews, and a chapel and memorial wall at the top of the hill. A solemn but thoughtful stop. We arrived in Rome shortly after noon, where John deposited us in a plaza and left to park the bus several miles away. Rome is full of churches, and some of the ruins are ruins because they were ...
We got up early to go grocery shopping with Francesco and Emanuela. Grocery stores are pretty similar to ours only much smaller and no place to park. We purchased a few items and we found it strange that they did not offer us a bag. Most people bring their own and they are not willing to hand out the bags unless you ask. Everyone was buying these crazy stuffed animals that looked like they were from veggie tales. Don't know what that was about. We did not take ...
... other city we have visited, there were incredible buildings and stunning views. We visited one of the cathedrals which was beyond incredible! It was huge and so artistic, not the usual building you would see. It had fruit and trees and all sorts of things worked into the building design. We then got all dressed up and headed out to a flamenco show. I really enjoyed it! ...
... building in Rome, and is connected by a fortified passage to the papal apartments, allowing the popes to flee to its relative safety (as they did in the sacking of Rome in the 1500s). It is called Castel S' Angelo for the Archangel Michael - legend holds that the Archangel Michael appeared atop the mausoleum, sheathing his sword as a sign of the end of the plague of 590, thus lending the castle its present name. There were some wonderful ...
