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 silk. The guide did not go up the top due to older people in our group. I asked her if Athena and I could go up there and catch up with them all again at the forum. She said "ok, you're fast and smart, you will catch up." I walked off with a big head I must say. I dragged Athena around the Colosseum and found the steep steps. It was great. She appreciated the view. Ran back down steep sloping steps. We got out to Constantine ...

He was gob-smacked that it would cost more to defend a speeding charge in Australia than pay the fine. "Wouldn't the court award costs", he asked. Talking of speed limits, last time I drove in Italy, everyone was going at +160kph. This time, there were radar warning signs ...
Visited the St Peter's Square & Basilica today. Basilica exterior pretty much looks like an upgraded version of the Supreme Court hahaha. We had to climb 500steps or smth to reach the top of the Basilica to get a paranomic view of Rome. The path and stairs up the Basilica is quite narrow, with different types of stairs, spiral, slanted, narrow, wide, etc etc hahaha. And ...

The most recent excursion we had took place this past weekend when traveled to Ibiza. This was our first time leaving Rome since getting here and needless to say it was a great time. We met many Americans at our hotel, which was right on the beach, and enjoyed the great weather and beach town vibes that Ibiza had to offer. Oh and the clubs were pretty fun too. Looking ahead we have a trip to ...
