Spent a week here for a meeting, and enjoyed it very much. The staff is friendly and helpful, the room was spacious and comfortable (with a great shower!), and its in a good location very close to Termini station, so couldn't be easier to get to with the direct train from Fiumicino airport. Only a couple of things which could have been improved in my opinion. There was construction work going on on the stairwell and the plastic the workmen put down to protect the marble stairs got quite treacherous after a while, and there were a couple of times where I came down for breakfast and found my hand was black from the workmen's dust which had not been cleaned from the handrail. Very minimal disruption caused by the work though. The great shower did leak quite a bit, but nothing that couldn't be dealt with sopping it up with the bathmat. My main complaint as a business traveller was the wireless internet in the room. It was really unreliable (showing strong signal which it would drop by the time you had managed to login to your email), which is a big problem when you are trying to work on the road. I suppose the advantage of an older building with quite thick walls is that I found it to be quiet at night, but its a challenge for wireless internet. Nevertheless, I would not hesitate to recommend staying at Hotel Alpi!

My wife and I stayed at hotel in Jan/13. It is in front of a piazza about 2-3 blocks from train station. Good location, and & 12-18 blocks from a lot of sites. Safe neighborhood. Supermarket right next to hotel. Good italian tratoria just a few doors down: Friendly staff, adequate breakfast in a breakfasr room with no windows. lobby very small. Best part of hotel was the room, which was modern with high ceilings and modern bathroom and large by euro standards. TV very small with little volume. Just 3 or 4 italian channels. If you do not mind walking or taking metro, hotel is a good choice. Great location if you want to be near train station. Nice movie theatres just a few blocks away. Some high end hotels in area. Watch out for pick pockets in busy streets near hotel. Man tried to open my wife's backpack purse on crowded sidewalk.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony.

Hotel is located five walking minutes from rome termini station. Hotel looks like an old roman villa with modern rooms that have very cool high ceilings. Staff is great, shower great but no place to put you're clothes or washing stuff. Breakfast is fine, lots of choices.

Great proximity from the train station and to the Hop On Hop Off Bus. We had a birthday and the hotel recommended a restaurant (not a cafe!) and it was fantastic. The room was roomy, very clean and comfortable. We had great WIFI and the staff were very helpful to assist in anything we asked - ie storing luggage, and booking taxis. Loved it and would recommend it to anyone for a short stay in Rome. The only downside - the lift was very small - ie 2 bags and one person, however we managed!

I spent hours researching hotels in Rome. After much anxiety, I chose Hotel Alpi. As soon as I arrived, I completely fell in love. The front desk gave me the option to choose between the classic rooms and the modern rooms. I chose the modern room. The room was a good size by European standards and clean. The bed was comfortable. The only complaint would be that the walls were too thin. I could hear the neighbor snore. Being used to apartment living, it didn't really bother me. The Termini Station is a close distance, about a 5-10 minute walk, but it is not too close to where you feel like you are in a bad area of town. I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to young urbanites who don't mind thin walls, and taking public transportation everywhere. It was a really nice stay and I would probably go back there. .
