“I´d be happy to stay longer in Alex inn and go again!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2012

Location is brilliant for some-one laike us who had only on day in rome, and two nights. Prise was also really good, but because it happeppend to be someone who could´t speak english at the desk when we were leavin and my italy was not enough to explain that we got special prise offer:) we needed to call to someone before it got sorted out.
They have really good taxi service, even it is little bit higher rate than city taxi, but they pick yuo up from the airport and help you to the building wich doesnt advertise on the door being a B&B.
I loved the way I could communicate and book the room trough email!
Room was clean, nice and spacey enough and the small roof terasse was BIG bonus.
Shower worked a bit slowly, but it did and all was clean!
Breckfast by selection was great, but be aware of their toast that comes in plasticwrap.
For being exellent I would have needed more detailed info how we get out and maybe answers to some questions i made but never got answer. Bacause we are vegans I tried to get some info where there might be place to eat. We got some info and the girl on the desk when we arrived was really helpful. But they didn´t had computer so we couldn check anything raelly. There is a good Wifi connection thoug so later I managed to do research by my phone.
And yhe walls are a bit thin i guess. cos you really can hear yuor neigbours. Otherwise the area was very quiet. Afrer a racket i heard in the nights in madrid I thought i was back home in countryside here in the centre of Rome! Could hardly hear anything!
I sure wish to go again to Rome and I might try this B&B again. Even there is not a person on the desk all the time you can always call, and i have no problem if I don´t have 24 our service. Actually prefer thiskind of place.

Room Tip: We were on the middle. but room 5 would bropably be more quiet.

We had three nights in Rome and wanted to be near the main sites. The location was good and the staff was very responsive and tried hard to make our stay pleasant. The breakfasts were very good. However, the places needs some work. The first upgrade needed is repairs to the walls and new paint. There are marks and gouges on every wall. Also, the B&B needs significant soundproofing. We could hear other guests in the halls every night. Lastly the hall carpeting needs to be replaced. The overall impression was somewhat depressive. Simple and clean/smart is fine but simple and dingy is depressing.

I am embarrassed to be writing this review so long after my visit but better late than never! I surprised my partner with a birthday trip to Rome back in April. It was a first visit for both of us and the Alex Inn was recommended to us by another hotel... we are so glad the first choice didn't work out because this B&B was just perfect! Yes it is relatively simple in its' provisions and it is true that the walls are a little on the thin side, but the service and brilliant location more than made up for it. From beginning to end the staff were very attentive to our needs and went the extra mile in ensuring that my partner's birthday was celebrated in style and no request was too much of a bother for them. For those who would like a little bit of peace, away from the anonymity of large chain hotels, the Alex Inn is ideal. I hope we get the chance to visit again!

Located quite close to some of the better hotels in Rome, this B&B is tucked away in a quiet location just near Via Veneto and minutes from two Metro stations and the Corso.

Rooms are moderate in size - we also had a balcony area which was perfect for breakfast. The bed very firm, the shower doing the job with good pressure.

Breakfast was very simple, but the espresso was good. There's a little fruit shop around the corner which can help you supplement the meal. Just be warned that toast in Italy is often packaged toasted bread which is more like a rusk!

A few notes:
- Do bring ear plugs as you can hear your neighbours or people in the corridor on occasion.
- Staff are obliging to do laundry - just let them know what temperature.
- Their taxi service was good but you will pay more than a standard taxi from the airport by about €15.
- Because there is not always someone on site you may face a wait for getting something you need, and this may include the 10 or more minutes for the staff to come back from wherever they are. But truth be told, they are very helpful.

All up, this is a very good budget option for Rome.

The staff was very welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed the large outdoor patio where we had breakfast. Breakfast is basic and served to your room based on your selection. Great location at walking distance to many restaurants and sights. We used their taxi service for airport pickup and the driver was there on time and he promptly got us to Alex Inn. We also booked the taxi from the B&B to the airport but the taxi didn't show up. It was booked for 8 am and there was nobody at the reception at that time to help us with this matter. The person in charge of making breakfast kindly pointed us where we could get another taxi on the street but we had to pay extra money (about 13 Euro) and we left 30 min later than originally planned.

It was a very nice hotel with a lovely balcony and room. There was just no one to ask questions or to complain to. Then you had to make a call. But on the other hand you had a lot of privacy. The breakfast was served very late. We missed it the last day while we asked to bring it early. The neighbours were very loud, but that was just our bad luck.
Very nice location and I would visit the hotel again.
