Okay, I confess. We've stayed here before and liked it then - so we came back. This time we were flying in late and informed them a couple weeks ahead. Their response was along the lines of "it's your room, we'll hold it. And we have front desk staff 24/7 at your service." Our late flight was delayed an extra... More

Booked this hotel as it's an easy walk from the main Termini station. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. We were upgraded to another room, facing the inner part of the hotel, which is probably a lot quieter than above the reception area. The rooms and corridors are painted in a dark terracotta colour making them quite dark,... More

On our final leg of family trip, we were pleasantly surprised when the hotel upgraded us to a family suite. The staff are cheerful, friendly and helpful. The hotel is located around 5 minutes walk from Termini station near Via Cavour and is the ideal place for major attractions including Spanish steps, colosseum, Santa Maria etc. The lobby have a...

Very nice room as well as sharp lobby/common areas (e.g. library with books and movies), great breakfast in rooftop room, easy walk from Termini, also walkable to all the main sights except the Vatican which is an easy metro ride. Very reasonable rates compared to many other options in the area.

We traveled with a family of 5 and had the suite. It was very basic but clean and exactly what we needed. When making a reservation, we mentioned that we have a 10 month old baby and a cot was already setup when we arrived. Room was ready for us as well as a booklet package that gave us a... More

Friendly and welcoming. Efficient staff with perfect English. Within easy walk of the bus and train termini, helpful guidance from the receptionist. Perfect for visiting all you need to see in Rome. Our trip was to track down all the Caravaggios.

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.
