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

We stayed only for two nights but were very happy with our stay. We didn't realize breakfast was not included in our rate, but it was a very nice stay. The staff were very helpful with directions and suggestions. The location is a short walk to the republica metro stop where you can easily get access to Rome's sights.

Clean, comfortable, quite spacious rooms, albeit with rather dark decoration. Good air conditioning and plenty of hot water when we were there. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a nice rooftop terrace for breakfast. Ask for proper coffee (espresso/cappuccino) rather than having the coffee from the flask. Beer and wine prices were very reasonable. A bonus for...

Great location for getting around Rome; took us 10 mins to walk to the colosseum and surrounding areas, 15 minutes to the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps and only 5 minutes to Termini station so the Vatican was easily accessible. The hotel was fine for our short stay although I thought it was very dark and slightly tired looking so... More

This place was cool! Good location and also very close to train station. We also loved the outside patio for breakfast, free wifi, and friendly staff. Place is very clean, cool library, and cool DVD collection that guests can use. Wish we could have stayed longer.

My family and I stayed at the hotel recently and we were very happy with the experience. Just a 5 minute walk from the Termini Station and 15 minutes from the Roman Forum this location is ideal for a family to see just about everything in the Eternal City. Door to door to the Vatican took us about 1 hour... More

We had a wonderful time at Hotel Rex. We stayed there twice--the first night we had a very nice double. The second time we stayed there they upgraded us to the penthouse, which was so much fun. Great complementary breakfast, excellent location.

Hotel Rex is so perfectly situated in Rome. Right near a Metra station to get around. The rooms are quaint and charming. Breakfast is included and will full you up with a large choice of dishes. I highly recommend this Hotel. Go to the rooftop for a quite evening of wine and privacy. No one uses it. Love this place.

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.
