A functional hotel with courteous, knowledgable front desk personnel, but (in retrospect) not necessarily the best area for 'experiencing' Rome. We chose Hotel Rex because of its proximity to Termini, which was great on getaway day. However, in the future I'd likely stay only one night here and spend the others in Navona/Pantheon area or perhaps Trestevere for more culture.... More

Spent 2 nights. The hotel is centrally situated, near the central station and place republica. The facilities are reasonable for its star class. There are a few stairs when entering the hotel that could challenge if you carry a big suitcase.

We just came back from a week in Rome and stayed at the Hotel Rex for the entire time (Aug 10th-Aug 17th). I was pleasantly surprised and quite pleased with the hotel. On the day we arrived, we were greeted by a very friendly front desk staff who spoke very good English (good thing as I'm sure she would not... More

I am torn about this place. As you will be able to tell from reading other reviews, it's a little hard to actually convey what this place is all about. The location a few blocks from Roma Termini makes it very convenient for train travellers. The immediate area is also convenient to Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore and a few other... More

Hotel Rex is great if you want to shop Via Nazionale and surrounding areas. It's great if you have to get to the train station early. It has a plentiful, if bizarre, breakfast buffet (salads, pasta, fruit, yogurt) with a great view from the terrace. The décor of the lobby is classy and the desk staff are very pleasant. Lots...

The Rex is very far from being a 4 star hotel. The good: The staff are very nice and wherever possible will do anything to help the guests, but are constrained by the penny pinching management. The room was large enough, beds were comfortable, sheets crisp. Location is good - walkable to the Colosseum and close to the hop on/off... More

Though I would not stay there again, the hotel wasn't terrible. It just seemed as though the entire place was 10 years in need of updating. The room was a bit run down, the television was using a PS2 to play dvds from an old library on the first floor and the AC was weak. It was Hot in July... More

We got to Rome via train and within 5 minutes from Termini we were in the largest room I've ever had in Rome. If you've ever been to Rome you know that rooms tend to be on a comically small size so getting a 2 room hotel suite with multiple beds was a great surprise while traveling with 2 small... More

Had recently visited Rome for a 3 day 4 night stay with our daughters. From the airport Rex takes about 45 minutes to reach by cab. If you are reaching Rome by train there there s terminus which you can come through train also very near to the hotel. The room sizes were fine however the thing to mention here... More

When choosing a hotel for my upcoming trip with my grandson, I reviewed many hotels and after reading numerous reviews, chose Hotel Rex. I made sure to choose a hotel that included a/c because I knew it was going to be hot in July. I booked the hotel for 5 nights. We checked in, found our room, which was far... 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.
