Historical Traveller Reviews of Alpi Hotel

Hotel room was great!

from kokwlw
Hotel Alpi was a little difficult to find, about 3 streets away from Station Termini. I didn't like the first room that was given to me(which had a small bathroom with shower only), so I ask to change to one with bath. Room 150 was great, with a spacious room and a huge jacuzzi bathtub!! After a day of walking around in Rome, it was fantastic to come back to the most relaxing bath ever!! I'd say u need about 3 days or more to explore Rome, 'coz I only spend two days and didn't get to see all of the attractions. Oh, the hotel didn't charge me extra for the room change and the staff was friendly enough, so I didn't feel like leaving Rome at all! I went to Venice next, and the hotel room was a suite, but quite old and not as nice as Hotel Alpi. I would highly recommend Hotel Alpi for the rooms, and although the location wasn't as good as I thought, I still think that it was a great hotel.

Friendly Hotel; Good Location

from Sianywantsatardis
Location:
The hotel is very near to the Termini Station (5 minute walk) which meant that we could get any bus or metro to any tourist attraction easily.

The hotel is in a nice road above Termini. The location was quiet but there was a handful of reasonably priced restaurants in the same road with outside seating areas. Also there are a couple of very nice cafes which sold a good selection of cakes and sandwiches, and were very friendly and helpful.

There is also a supermarket and a self service restaurant quite close to the hotel.

All the main sights are in relative walking distance appart from the Vatican, although we found it better to go by bus and walk back.

Hotel:
The hotel is very nicely decorated with an antique style, but is very bright and welcoming.

We stayed in rooms overlooking the small central courtyard. We had a double room which was quite large and luxuriously decorated, the large bathroom had a jacuzzi bath and there were tea making facilities.

My daughter had a smaller room which although was nicely decorated, with a double bed, was quite small. Because there were renovations in progress on her floor, she couldnt open the shutters because of scaffolding which made the room quite dark (but this is probably not a problem now!).

Staff:
The reception staff were very friendly, and helpful, when we needed directions they gave us a map and took the time to explain thoroughly. If we wanted a tour booked they organised it for us. Our luggage was taken to our rooms and brought down from our rooms when leaving and they stored our luggage in a safe and secure room on arrival and departure. The cleaning staff were thorough.

The staff in the breakfast room greeted us on arrival, showed us to our seats, rapidly plied us with tea or coffee and ensured the food was always full stocked.

Final Thought:
For the first time in Rome we couldn't have picked a better venue. Would definately use again and would recommend.

Good hotel, convenient location

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel is located within walking distance of Termini station, which is ideal for those taking day trips. The metro stops for both the blue and red lines are also nearby. Our flight was delayed, so we had to check-in after 2 am. The person at the reception desk was very courteous and got us checked-in as fast as he could! The room itself is very small, but the size of the bathroom, and the Jacuzzi totally made up for it. Breakfast was one of the best ones we’ve had in Italy. In short, I would go back to this hotel, and I would recommend it to others, especially if you are going to be arriving or departing by train.

You will not get any sleep here!

from A TripAdvisor Member
One of the worst hotels I've ever stayed at for this money!

1. The first night we were dumped at a hotel over the road as there was a 'problem' with our room. I felt we were simply unexpected!

2. Noise - can't say too much about this except you get plenty.

3. Sleep - can't say too much about this except you will not get much.

4. Staff - crap at Reception but the cleaners/dining room staff are much better.

Very Disappointing

from jahowya
We stayed in Hotel Alpi for a week. When we booked the Hotel directly with them, we confirmed that it had satellite TV (as I wasn't too well and knew I might be spending some time in the room relaxing) and air conditioning. Neither worked. Despite pleas every day to have them looked at, staff just shrugged and refused. On my birthday as I was not able to go out, we asked if we might be compensated by the lack of air conditioning and TV by a pay movie - which we had to book as the TV was not working. Staff just laughed. The shower in the en-suite did not work either and they refused to deal with this.

The location of the hotel is good - near the train station which gives access to everywhere very easily, but it was difficult to enjoy our stay when we couldn't sleep well with the heat, and given the poor atmosphere in the hotel.

We have stayed four times in other three star hotels in Italy and they were wonderful. This certainly wasn't.

Pretty good

from antoinette_f
Just back from Alpi hotel in Rome. One must consider that rooms are very different there. At first we were given a very (!) beautiful room, spacious, with very high ceilings, walls covered with textile, and with beautiful furniture (though all visibly worn up, not new). But the room was facing the street and we asked to change it. Second room was of average size which is very small :) and with ordinary budget hotel furnishing. But it was facing the patio and thus was very quiet.
Both rooms had Jacuzzi. In both rooms ventillation (or was it air conditioner?) was _very_ noisy and loud, so we turned it off. But in summer one might need it - please note.
Rooms and the whole hotel are clean, service is good and staff helpful.
Breakfast, though cold, was far above average for budget hotels. I have chosen this hotel for its convenient location and would recommend it especially for single travelers who arrive from airport by train to Termini station.

friendly hotel

from Mackem
spent two nights at the alpi.
Nice hotel with friendly and helpfull staff.
Clean rooms and large enough bathroom.
As much as you can eat breakfast.
Easy to get to from the termin station.

Only downside was that we requested 2 double rooms and we got two twin bed rooms.

I would consider this hotel again especially for the price, but would also look for a more centrall located hotel for the sights and night life

Excellent Hotel at a fantastic price

from manasta
We stayed in Alpi Hotel at Rome for 4 nights on December 2004. This hotel is really a bargain. It is located 4 minutes by foot from Termini Station, where trains from/to airport and rest of Italy and both Rome’s metro lines are crossed. Termini is also the starting point of almost all Rome’s bus lines. The area is not the best in Rome but it is quite safe and very convenient for tourists. It was very easy for us to find the hotel. The building is old with tall ceilings but very well maintained and it was very nicely decorated for Christmas. We had a standard double room on the 4th floor. Our room was very clean, spacious and nicely decorated, with a very comfortable bed, color TV, air-conditioning, mini-fridge, safe-box, hair-dryer, balcony and big toilet with douche. Service and cleanness was above standards and staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was really impressive, with several kinds of breads, jams, cakes, caddies, biscuits, eggs, cheeses, hums, fruits, yogurts, juices, coffees, milk, hot chocolate, tea etc. Breakfast room has beautiful colors on walls, soft light and classical music. Public areas (entrance, reception, bar) were also very worm and beautiful. I have stayed in many 3 and 4 star hotels in Europe (London, Paris, Venice, Vienna, etc) but this one really surprise us for all those reasons at a really fantastic price: only 68 € per room per night, breakfast included.

an ok stay

from pontyclun
Just returned for Rome, had a great time in 'the eternal city'.

Hotel Alpi was okay, the room (we had a family room cos we took the kids) was big and spacious. Wooden block flooring and high vaulted ceilings, nicely decorated and very clean. The bathroom was small but had all you needed.

The room had a mini bar with reasonable prices and a free safe.

Staff were okay, some reviews are not complimentary about te staff but theres not much converstaion with their limited English and our limited Italian.

Breakfast was good unlimited buffet with a good choice.

Located very near Termini Station which is good for arrivaldeparture and getting busses/metro to travel around whilst there. Maybe to far to walk to St Peters Sq. (Well it was with the kids) Good bar & Trattoria adjacent with othr places nearby.

We'd stay there again.

t bother

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel ran a promotion (stay three nights and fourth night free) and though we satisfied all conditions, they charged for all four days.
This despite me printing out their 'special offer' page and showing it to them. They just asked me to follow up with my reservation agency.

Even without this problem, there isn't anything to recommed this hotel.

The location is not very nice though it is conveniently close to the main train station (Termini) and there is a grocery store, couple of self-service laundries, internet shops and restaurants nearby.

Our corridor (second floor) had a funky, stale odor. The shower head was leaking, the flush had to be coaxed into doing its job. The a/c was working but barely. Our room faced the street and so there was street noise as well. The staff wasn't rude but not very professional. Every time i asked them about the promotion, they'd put it off and say that there must have been some mistake etc.

We stayed in three stars in four other cities in europe (including florence and venice in italy) and every one was much better than this one.

Top Local Tips for Rome

Visit Italy for Christmas We saved 1/2 on airfare by traveling to Italy over Christmas. We visited Venice, Florence, Pisa, Rome, Pompeii and Positano. We didn't have to fight throngs of tourists and We never stood in line for any attraction other than the Vatican museums/Sistine Chapel. The weather was nice 50-75 deg. It is probably the most speical christmas we will remember. We didn't have family or friends there but we had a great time together as a family. If you rent a car to get around watch out - Italians drive like maniacs! I recommend the extra insurance offered. We drove to each city, parked the car in a garage and walked everywhere.

transfers If travelling to Rome with Easyet or Ryanair, don't get the Terravision bus - get the Bus shuttle from Ciampino directly to termini and save 2 euro each way.
