A very pleasant surprise. Arriving at what looked like an apartment block I was worried that I had made the wrong choice, but do not judge this place by appearances, please. As the lift doors opened I received a very warm welcome from the owner who had been preparing a few suggestions for my stay while waiting for me to arrive. I chose the place on rate and location. What was a pleasant surprise was the generously designed room and outdoor private terrace. Each morning I had fresh breakfast delivered and ate it on my terrace, then set out for the day and returned to the comfort and cool of my room each evening. Very pleasant surprise. I'll be returning.
Soundproofing wasn't the greatest, although don't let it put you off unless you're the world's lightest sleeper.
The location was ideal.We could walk to all of the sights and attractions and restaurants that we wanted to visit.The room was small but functional and we had a small balcony.
We did no like the breakfast.
Location and the terrace, where it was a beautiful lemon tree.
Lots of things. Our room didn't appear on any of the pictures I viewed on sites, being small, without windows and for sure reserved for the staff of the hotel. It was very dirty and old, there were stains on our sheets and on the floor. The bed was a simple mattress laid on the floor and the AC wasn't working for heat, even though outside was still cold. The closet was scratched and dirty and the bathroom had a door as one of the wall, which separated it from the kitchen (in the morning, while in our bathroom, we heard our breakfast being prepared). It was a complete disappointment.
The room was modern, clean and it had an excellent patio for our breakfast in bed that was provided every morning. It was a nice way to start the day and a good place to take refuge when the heat got the best of us. The location was excellent- an easy walk to all the sites.
The staff presence was spotty at best. It felt more like staying at an apartment than a hotel. You needed four keys to get to your room, but it was a nice set-up if you don't mind missing out on the hotel experience.
Although lift an issue room was excellent and good balcony
Staff where very helpful, and the rooms a/c was jammin'. The hotel was centrally located, a very short walk will get you to the Spanish steps and the Trevi fountain.
There was a slight odor in the hallway of the hotel (not in the room), it honestly smelled like burnt rubber. When the maid came to clean the room she would always leave the door to the balcony open a little, I am assuming this was to "air out" the room. It wasn't a huge deal because each room had it's own ac unit that could make it sub-zero in just a few minutes.
Great location near metro, high class and safe neighbourhood, cafes and restaurants nearby, comfortable room with private balcony, breakfast served at room, multilanguage reception, friendly staff, satellite tv 800 channels all over the world, 24h warm water, a/c
If you are ''lucky'' to stay in the room named ''private'' remember it is actually an attic and the smallest, with no table inside the room to have breakfast properly. It has though private balcony. Someone very tall can stand up only at a part of the room, so watch your head. Some people may find this romantic...shower is separate room from the rest wc at the other side of the room and with wall made out of glass (!) and transparent door. The room lucks of shade and is warmer. Fortunatelly there is a/C. Apart from this, Alex Inn is nice and comfortable, an excellent choise
Alex Inn was great. Helpful, knowledgeable, multi-lingual staff, good service, modern, clean rooms. They all have a little balcony that go out into the courtyard which minimizes noise polution from the street. Breakfast is handeled well, too: You fill out a card and put it to the reception desk with what you want and when you want it, then it is delivered to your room. It is not the most amazing selection, but enough to get you started. Especially for Rome the value for money is great. Absolute recommendation.
Bring ear plugs! (Thin walls.)
Fantasitic hotel for the price. Very well located and the Staff was very helpful and wants to help. We cannot compare this place the big hotels in term of services (that increase the cost of your room by several 100euros) but in my point of this is the best quality price hotel that I've seen in Europe to visit a city. It's a must!!!!
The location of the hotel was excellent! The room was very clean and the stuff was very polite!
Very functional and the terrace was a definite plus.
The walls seemed a bit thin and it was easy to hear conversations from the next room and the front desk.
I stayed in Alex Inn 17-20.10.2011. It is situated on the fifth floor of the old building and I had a nice feeling as if I live in Rome :) It is in walking distance of almost all attractions of Rome, so it was really easy to see around and return back to the hotel even in the late night. The room was very clean and comfortable with nice small terrace with a view to the roofs of Rome and breakfast delivered to your room :) There are several bars and cafes around the hotel, so you can always have a morning esspresso/capucino with freshly squized orange juice and some snacks when you are hungry.
Breakfast delivered to the room, location, friendly staff
Mattress was not the most comfortable
Location, cleaness of the room.
Room nr.4 was quite small bathroom only 1squar meter or smaller, terrace unfortunately without any view. Fridge did not work… Walls paper thin… But staff was nice and if we take into account location and price other hotels around in this area, than it was ok!
Very friendly staff. clean. convenient price and convenient location. excellent for a weekend city walk
Too many keys to have to go in and out. Tiny old fashion elevator but it could have its charm.
