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

Location = EXCELLENT (1/4 miles from the main station and 1 mile from the Coliseum area). Parking = Garage Price = a little bit overpriced Staff = FANTASTIC. Very kind, helpful and smiling Hotel style = "80es": I would suggest some refurbishment. Room = quite big and good for 4 persons (I booked an "DELUXE ROOM" room). Bathroom = ACCEPTABLE... More

We originally selected to stay at this hotel because of its proximity to the train station as well as the pictures posted on one of the well known travel booking sites; however, upon arrival we were shocked with what we saw... to say the least it was almost as if we booked another hotel. The central location was great, the... More

Hotel Rex is conveniently located to nearby bus and rail transportation. It is also within walking distance to restaurants, shopping and historic churches. The rooms are small, but very clean. They serve an excellent breakfast each morning which is included in the room cost. We were very pleased with Hotel Rex and would stay again if we return to Rome.

We selected this hotel for its cost and location. This was our pre-cruise stay and we loved the location since it is an easy walk from the Termini. Front desk staff was extremely helpful. We had a great overnight stay. Free WiFi was a BONUS.

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

Hotel Rex is a hotel that was converted from an 18th century villa. It is centrally located in Rome close the main train station (Termini). If you walk out the front and go right walk just to the end of the street stop then turn 90 degrees to your left and go straight three blocks to the train station, also... 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...

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.
