It’s an elegant 4-star hotel in a convenient location, close to transport and attractions. The room was good sized and comfortable, and the staff helpful and friendly. A great feature is the hotel is the roof-top terrace, a great spot for a quiet drink. Hotel Alpi Roma was a great base to explore Rome, we loved every minute of our stay!
It is not as big as some Roman rooftop bars, nor as flash. But it's on top of a lovely ivy-clad hotel on the corner of Largo Febo, steps away from the downtown heart of ancient Rome (Piazza Navona and Via del governo Vecchio) yet a world and a half away from all the tourist tat. Order a bottle of prosecco from the charming, friendly staff and, feeling thoroughly glamorous, watch the sun go down on St Peter's basilica and the rooftops of Rome. But that's not all - and this is what makes the Raphael the very best for rooftop tippling - when you're ready for dinner you can head back down to the filmset/fairytale little square below where Ristorante Santa Maria serves up excellent food and oodles of ambience. And you can round your evening off at any of the great bars nearby; Bar della Pace of Bar del Fico are just two within an easy totter.
Nothing special as far as design or services are concerned, but the room was nice and the location is convenient to visit all the attractions. Rome’s main transport hub, the Termini station, is a few minutes walk away, that’s where we arrived with the Leonardo Express from the airport. The historic centre or the Spanish Steps are a short walk, or you can take different buses - we never bothered. To sights further such as the Vatican or the Colosseum you can take the metro, that was easy and straight forward. There is a wide range of restaurants in the area: towards the station they tend to be cheaper, towards Monti and the centre trendier and more expensive. It was a good hotel at the right price, convenience and value for money.
