Unlike others we had no major negative expertiences at Hotel Alpi. I booked there after stumbling across the name from another reviewer. We were looked after from the time we arrived until the moment we departed. Tonino at reception was always helpful, polite and courteous. We stupidly forgot a travel adaptor, which he loaned us. He also gave us local restaurant recommendations and helped us choose train/bus times. The room was good. Clean and not tatty as some people have said. Not too noisy, despite being 1st floor and above the hotek entrance. Bathroom was fine, but shower screen didn't seal properly so water went everywhere - more likely to be a problem for the hotel over time than any guests. Also towels were changed every day, even though we didn't want/need that! Breakfast was OK, and in continental style. It gets a bit samey after a couple of days, but that can't be helped. The waitresses in the breakfast room never once asked us whether we'd like tea or coffee, but seemed to ask the native Italians that somehow... didn't bother us though - we told them what to get us. Recommended!

Room Tip: Room 157 is good!

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a group and the location is great for getting around - it is very close to the bus station so buses to each area are very easy to catch. There is also a taxi rank at the end of the street.

All the rooms our party had were tiny - and some better than others. Only 1 of the 3 rooms had been refurbished, and it was certainly the best room. It had been decorated in a modern way with fabric walls rather than grubby & scuffed wallpaper, and a black & white bathroom.

In our room the shower (which looked impressive but didn't work properly) was seperate to the toilet and sink. It was a very strange set up - the shower basically opened up in to the bedroom. There was also not enough space in the room with the toilet as you couldn't sit on it properly! You had to sit at an angle, very poor layout.

Bedding was clean and the bed very comfortable, especially after long days wandering around the streets of Rome. Soundproofing isn't good, and we were woken up a few times throughout the night from noises outside.

Breakfast was very good - usual hams, cheeses, breads, cakes and pastries, a great selection and very tasty too.

Overall, I am confused by this hotel. It should be great and certainly has the potential to be. Don't be fooled by the common areas, they do look beautiful, and they are, but the rooms are in dire need of refurbishment... then it will be amazing.

Stayed here for a couple nights on my Honeymoon. Very convenient location for travel into Rome, and to local sights. Cool style in the building, as would be expected in Italy. Elevator was tiny, as was the room - but I suppose that is expected also. I plan to come back to this hotel again next time in Rome...

Location is very good, very close to Termini. Rooms are clean and quite comfortable, not big but it is Rome. Bed is very convenient and bedclothes are wonderful (extra cleanness). Some rooms look in beautiful small garden/terrace. Bathrooms are small but again it is Rome. Staff is kind and helpful. Try to avoid elevators using, they are very small and extremely slow. To complete the overall very nice picture it is necessary to mention that there are several nice cafe, restaurants and vinotecs close to the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms with windows in the terrace are quiet.

We had to look for a room for my daughter while she is studying for 6 months in Rome. The staff at the reception helped us so well, they made different calls for us and always with a smile.
The room was OK, only the bathroom should be bigger.
Also the location is super, near the Termini station, so you can visit the city by train, metro or bus.
