Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Alpi

Via Castelfidardo 84, Rome, Latium, 00185, Italy See on Map

The Hotel Alpi is located in an historic Art Nouveau building where high ceilings with elegant chandeliers, white walls, and marble floors lend it both elegance and warmth, all right around the corner from Termini station. Guest rooms are tastefully decorated, some with antique furniture and others with sleek, contemporary design; fresh flowers are displayed throughout the hotel and on the terrace. There are slightly formal lounges and a cozy bar downstairs; the restaurant serves traditional Mediterranean cuisine.

YOU SHOULD KNOW As one of the more popular budget options in Rome, this hotel can fill up quickly, so plan accordingly.


The harlequin style continues throughout the rooms, with subtle modern lines of red, browns and black. Comfortable beds are clean and modern, with stacks of hypoallergenic fluffy pillows. Most rooms are bright and elegantly laid out, making the most out of every cubby hole and space. Amenities include slippers, a laptop safe, free WiFi, satellite TV, minibar and tea service.


Bathrooms are also modern, decorated in black or travertine stone, with large showers or bathtubs with plenty of hot water and shower pressure. Generic toiletries are provided, so bring your own if you want anything special.


The lobby recalls the Art Nouveau glamor of the hotel's origins, complete with high ceilings and Murano glass chandeliers. A black and white harlequin-patterned marble floor and rich black velvet furniture welcome you to the reception desk.


When booked online, breakfast can be brought to your room for no additional charge. The buffet offers a wide assortment of homemade breads and organic offerings. Gluten free foods are available upon request. And if you're in a rush, they'll also pack a to-go breakfast for you. Homemade Italian meals are also served on Le Terrazze, with an incredible view of the city below.


Le Terrazze also offers round-the-clock bar service to have a relaxing drink on one of the flower-filled terraces. It's a quiet place to sit and plan your next day or have a signature cocktail before retiring for the night.


Getting Around

An airport shuttle to and from the hotel is available upon request. But it's also just a 7-minute walk from Termini, where you can catch a train, metro, or bus anywhere around Rome and beyond. Its central location also makes it walking-distance to many of Rome's famed attractions.


Make a reservation at the intimate Trattoria Monti (18-minute walk) for home-style Italian food like roasted rabbit, suckling pig and casserole dishes. For a lighter dessert go to Grezzo Raw Chocolate (16-minute walk) for homemade cookies, cakes and gelato, all made with decadent homemade chocolate and coconut sugar.


The Julius Caesar Gurgustium (1-minute walk) is a late-night spot with a huge bar and cocktail menu. Don't be turned off by the over-the-top lighting design. Except on nights when they host events, it's a very laid-back bar to meet up with friends. St. Patrick's Pub (11-minutes) will not disappoint if you're looking for a fresh pint or a game of darts.


Despite being in one of Rome's less-than-savory neighborhoods, the Hotel Alpi is an elegant respite full of top-service amenities. Staff will go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay. Although many furnishing could use a refresh, rooms are clean and bright and feel like home. One of the city's better budget options, the Hotel Alpi is a perfect option if you want to stay close to public transportation options.
