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

This hotel is literally a 10min walk from the main train and bus station so really ideal from that perspective. The breakfast was simple but good. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The bathroom was clean and the room was a little on the small side but not in Rome for the hotels so we didnt mind that... More

From the start this hotel and staff were first class. Explained area, best places to eat etc. Provided car to take us/bring us home to their restaurant. Room small but clean and everything we needed. Lovely terrace to enjoy late evening drinks and bar staff very friendly/helpful. Cannot say anything bad about this hotel and made our stay perfect.

This was our 3rd stop on a 2 week tour of Italy. 10 minute walk from the main train station which has a direct link to the airport. Room was a lot smaller than our previous 3 star rooms in Venice and Florence. not a lot of storage space or any place to store cases. Access to Reception is along... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
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.
