“A home from home atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2011

A family friendly accomodation with very clean and comfortable rooms. A stone throw's away from the central Termini station or Repubblica metro station. Buses pass just round the corner.
The owners are extremely friendly. They even left a large Easter egg for our little one in our room.
If you're staying in Rome, choose this place.
Breakfast is OK and there a good restaurant (independent of the hotel) just outside the main door which is always packed with locals.

I went to Rome with my girlfriend to visit the most important tourist spots. Alma de Roma is perfect for that as it is located just by the Termini Station, where Metro Lines A & B cross and lots of Bus (both city bus and bus from Ryanair destination Ciampinos' airport) and train depart / arrive
The staff is really friendly and the rooms are very well decorated and comfortable! Alma de Roma doesn't have tv in the bedroom nor gym facilities, however we didn't care about it at all. The weather was a bit too cold, so we didn't use the terrace to have the breakfast.
It is contiguous to Ristorante Famiglia, which I also recommend!

Stay 30.09.10 - 04.10.10

We arrived at Termini on SitBus Shuttle and walked 5min to Via Gaeta to find Alma de Roma right next a Trattoria. Had no problem on streets next to Termini, just don´t act like a tourist and that could help you there :)

Alma is on a 5th floor, elevator till 4th and on last floor you have to climb stairs.
Noel greeted us, helped with bags and showed our room, he speaks perfect english. We asked on reservation for a TV just to keep in touch with news cause they don´t have TV in rooms and they gently provided one in ours.
Noel explained all we needed in a very professional manner yet and always with a warm smile and attitude. He gave us the keys we kept till check out.

At reception we have some books to read about Rome and other cities, and maps. The 5th (last) floor is entirely of Alma de Roma; right side to rooms, reception and kitchen; left side to terrace.

The terrace is unique and a real surprise. The opportunity to relax after a long walking day or taking breakfast in the morning is fabulous. There are no great Rome view but only a sky view to charge your energies. Very private and cosy, inviting to change experiences with guests and owners.
Breakfast with toasts, croissants, jams, butter, cookies, fruit, red orange juice, milk, coffee, nespresso, tea and home made cake (may vary, that time they had chocolate cake and was delicious).

For a young couple who wanted to visit Rome we had it all there. No internet but you can find it half way to Termini anywhere. Night shops and good restaurants nearby, can advice La trattoria "La famiglia" right out the door and "Il cuori di Napoli" on Via Cernaia, 5 min walk.

Room was cozy and nicely decorated as well as the reception, good pillows and clean. Private bathroom, towels and shower gel. Nice areas but inclined ceiling on less than half room, no problem since we only were there at night.

Andrea and Noel made us feel always warm on a professional manner, keeping close to us but not being intimate, and we like it. Andrea gave us some great tips on Rome.
On last day upon our request they made us breakfast earlier than schedule and both came to say goodbye and shake hands, showing that little details make a huge difference.

Super value for money, great staff and fabulous choice to visit Rome with no frills.
Will definitely return and recommend Alma. Thank you!

We stayed at "Alma de Roma" for four nights in late August. There is totally nothing to complain about. We chose this hotel to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. As we mentioned before arrival in an email, there was a bottle of Prosecco sparkling wine waiting for us in the room. We were helped with the luggage and a nice boy introduced the hotel to us. The breakfast is served on a lovely terrace - although there was a buffet selection, there was always a person to bring you everything you asked for including the delicious cappucino. Each morning the owner arrived just to say us hello and ask if everything is OK. The room was exactly what we needed - comfortable bed, roof window, spacious enought for two people, functionally equipped (with a brand new furniture) and what is the most important - it was really clean! The walls are thick enough so there were no problems with neighbours, bathroom OK as well.
The position is really centrical - 3 minutes to Termini station, 5 to Plaza de la Republica, 20 from Colloseum ... there was no need to take the public transport and we have enought time to wander around all the monuments.
I would definitely recommended to anyone leading to Rome.

My sister, my friend and I, book this hotel last minute, after our flight to Greece was canceled due to air traffic control strike, so we had to go directly to Rome. They were the most pleasant people I met in all of Italy, they gave us directions to every site, made sure we had breakfast in the morning and everything. I will always go back to them when staying in Rome. The only downside was the lack of internet.
