My wife and I stayed the week of May 20. For each morning, we had no hot water. In addition, we overheard another guest complaining about no hot water at night. The desk attendant told him to wait an hour to 90 minutes and there would be hot water again. For the cost of the room, Hotel Rex should be... More

The hotel is quite basic and the rooms are small however the rooms are clean and tidy. The location of the hotel is perfect, it is in walking distance of times square and has a subway station just down the road. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. I would definitely visit this hotel again as it is just what... More

Lied to us about our transfer costs. Beds were ok but not the greatest. TV not working. Cold showers. Will not recommend this to anyone I know coming to... More

Upon our arrival at the hotel, we were provided with a very detailed map and hotel guide of sorts. It was the most comprehensive provision of information that we had in our entire, 4 city Eurotrip. It was much appreciated. The man provided all of the tourist destinations we might be interested in. He also helped us make reservations to... More

But as soon as we arrived, we new it was the perfect fit! Excellent location, Excellent staff and comfortable room. Stayed April 14 - April 18, 2015. I can't think of any negative to say. Remember,... More

Simply loved my stay at this hotel. I have traveled to many countries and hotels, but the staff was the best I ever met. All of them are friendly and helpful. The room is big, cozy and the hotel is in a great location within a few walk to termini or republica metro stations. The breakfast is also good. Cakes,... More

I stayed at this hotel with a friend for 3 days. The staff was very friendly and helpful and most could speak English quite well. The room was huge, with two twin beds and a futon. The location was only a few blocks from the Termini station to catch a bus or Metro train. The surrounding area had many restaurants... More

Really nice friendly hotel close to Termini and steps from Santa Maria Maggiore (one of the best churches in Rome). We were made to feel really welcome by staff and given tips on where to visit. We had a family suite and this was perfect for our needs. The room was clean and spacious and very quiet at night. The... More

Quaint hotel conveniently located steps from the Opera House and Termini Station. Friendly and helpful staff - better English than my Italian. Convenient to so many historic sites. Rome is a great walking city. Rooms a little tight for space but if you are only using them to sleep in, then fine! Otherwise, spring for the bigger room. Highly recommended

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.
