I stayed in a triplet room during the christmas holiday. The room is beautiful and clean, as well as the bathroom. They clean the room and change the toiletries everyday. The location of hotel is ok...but not that close to termini. There are other cheaper hotels just next to termini, however this hotel's area is more quiet and cleaner. But,... More

Visited in September. The third part of our mini Italian tour. The hotel is well placed, a 10 minute walk from the railway station, and the tour buses. The staff were pleasant, and looked after us, especially during a torrential downpour, making sure we got the taxi booked, and not another black one trying to steal business from the council...

Stayed here on recommendations from work colleagues and had a pleasant stay. We walked from Termini Station to the hotel and if you aren't aware the entrance to the hotel is down a driveway you can easily walk straight past the hotel. We found the hotel to be in a great spot with some great little restaurants around the hotel.... More

Good hotel with nice staf and clean rooms. We stayed here for 4 days and we had a tiny room wich was ok and clean. The only downside is that the rooms have thin walls and you could hear everything. Recommended for a few day's.

We stayed 4 nights at this recently renovated hotel in a good location to inner Rome and all the tourist attractions. It is located in an area surrounded by a number of International Embassies, so local walks around the area are pleasant too. The staff are helpful and all speak a reasonable level of English, if that is important to... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
