Connectivity was very important for us and hence we decided to stay close to Termini. Once that was decided, Hotel Alpi was a very good choice. Right since the beginning we had a very good experience at the hotel with we giving our preference regarding rooms and the hotel staff - especially Carla responding very promptly and accommodating our requests. We stayed in a superior room facing the Piazza Indipendenza.
The hotel is located only 400 metres from Termini - hardly a 5-6 minute walk from the underground metro. Also all the buses from the airport stop near Termini so hauling your luggage is never so much of a hassle. Also most buses stop at Piazza Indipendenza - right opposite the hotel. Especially bus no. 492 to go to Campo di Fiori area. Walk 200 metres and not less than 10 eating options open up. The street where the hotel is located was extremely safe and nothing to worry about here.
The room itself was well appointed. Very clean, good toiletries and fine washroom. Multiple pillows and good decor. Nothing much to complain here.
The breakfast was good with varied options. We are vegetarians so we had different variety of pastries, home made jams, croissants, bread, juice, excellent yoghurt. To be picky - there was no hot vegetarian option - something like potatoes or beans. That would have been ideal.
Lastly, the free wi-fi was good but the speed was ok - we definitely would have liked it to be better! For these two reasons we shaved off a point. The staff was very friendly - Carla, Saveiro and even the support staff. We felt welcome here and would have no issued recommending the hotel at all to anyone.
January is off season in Rome but we found fine weather. One additional sweater and we were good. Plus fewer people. Rome in January is definitely the best time to visit! We got a great deal. Stayed 4 days and paid ~Euro 75 per night.
