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.

... hundreds of pigeons descending on her. We wandered back to the older area where we had seen a shop that sold tea. I haven't had a cup of tea since I arrived and I was really looking forward to one. They brought me a lovely pot of hot water and a selection of tea bags both black, green and herbal teas so I was able to choose my own. I chose a herbal tea and really enjoyed it and as I had a pot I was able to have a couple of cups. We also ...
So we arrived in the Vatican City the day before Rome's biggest event in 600 years, two popes were being canonised! There was people EVERYWHERE, all the roads were blocked off and I'm pretty certain the price of everything was doubled. By now I've completley had enough of Italian food, it just so bland and expensive. It's impossible to get a pizza with more than one topping and their pasta ...
... recounts that over 9,000 wild animals were killed during the inaugural games of the amphitheatre. The building was remodelled further under Vespasian's younger son, the newly designated Emperor Domitian, who constructed the hypogeum, a series of underground tunnels used to house animals and slaves. He also added a gallery to the top of the Colosseum to increase its seating capacity. In 217, the Colosseum was badly damaged by a major fire (caused by lightning, according to Dio ...
Saturday started nice and early with a shuttle bus to the Vatican City and another perfect cloudless day of about 26 degrees. Before meeting up with our tour group for the morning we stopped at a little corner cafe and had our first taste of Italian Coffee - #2 on the list of things better then sex. Once we met up with our tour group we crossed the border from Rome into the Vatican City to start our three hour tour. Over the next three hours we would visit the Vatican ...
... rooms to get to the Sistine Chapel. Time was getting tight and the crowds were packed entering that last room before the Chapel. Our guide warned us that she was going to push us through the crowd because she feared they would close the room to thin the crowd heading to the chapel. All seven of us barely squeezed our way through the crowd and left the room before they closed the doors. That's why you hire a guide. I have no pictures of the Sistine Chapel ceiling. You will have ...
