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.

As many of the reviews state, the customer service at this Hotel is amazing, every staff member was friendly and helpful and they all spoke excellent English. We stayed in the Apartment, which had 2 Bedrooms, a living room, full kitchen and bathroom - we were 5 plus baby and we didn't feel crowded at all. One member of our... More

Hotel Rex had its own little charm to it. From walking in the front door for the first time right up to leaving we felt very welcomed by friendly staff. Our room was small but perfect. It was very cozy and I always had a good nights sleep in it. It was kept very clean on a daily basis. The... More

Stayed for a long weekend as my husband had always wanted to see Rome. Staff were all very helpful and pointed out how to get to all the important sights. Room was large with a lovely big bed and an extra little sofa as well as two chairs. No view but we weren't planning on spending much time in the... More

If you book through Expedia or anywhere like that do not expect the nice rooms pictured in the photos. The room we got was small and stayed VERY warm all night. There was one power adaptor/converter in the bathroom that came in handy. There is an elevator as others have said there was not, but there is. a the breakfast... More

This was my fourth time in Rome and first time staying at the Hotel Rex. It was brilliant, the service was spot on, the rooms great and the location close to transport links all around the City. The hotel staff were always there to help, asked for help to get to different places the team told us exactly how to... More

Although not very fancy, the hotel was comfortable and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Everyone went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and had what we needed. I would recommend this hotel.

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.
