A nice clean hotel close to Subway and railstation. Very good breakfast buffé with a lot of various choices. The neighborhood is not the nicest i've seen but it's okay. Very friendly and seviceminded staff.

RobertoCri, General Manager at Ambra Palace Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Lena, thank you very much indeed for your positive review. We are pleased you had a pleasant stay with us. The area of the hotel is multicultural, probably because we are very next to the main railway station of Rome, but it's safe and has all pubblic transportation facilities nearby. Best regards. More

Good morning, We are very sorry about the bad experience you had. Let me say anyway the delay with your shuttle service is not our fault, furthermore we informed all the agencies about refurbishment of the hotel, we also give them the name of the hotel reserved for you. I understand you were very scared arriving in a city you... More

Hi, The hotel as such is just a standard - not bad and nothing extraordinary either. The room was moderately spacious (but comfortable), the same with bathroom. It could be seen that it is kept clean though the interior is really worn out, the same in Bathroom and actually the administration could have put effort to reduce amount mold in... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. Convenient location, friendly and hospitalable staff, spotless rooms with every amenity that I needed. The local market nearby is fascinating and although I was in Rome on business, the nearby transport links made it easy to access all the historic areas. The Wifi was quick and easy to access.

We were allocated their new refurbished room which was comfortable and lush. The staff were great and we appreciated the welcome drink and the breakfast. The neighbourhood was interesting but not uncomfortable as other reviews make out but we're not scared or prejudiced. I think they are priced reasonably considering. The food market just across the street was amazing. It's... More

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights at the beginning of September, 2014. The hotel is inside the Aurelian walls of Rome so still inside the area with most of the "tourist" historical sites... but it is a bit west from many of the more popular places. For me, this was a perfect area... walking distance to the train station... More

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The staff were mildly pleasant at best, the room was "fine", and the location/neighborhood awful. I would not walk on those sidewalks at night; we had to get a cab to a restaurant. There is graffiti all over buildings in the vicinity. Stay somewhere else in Rome!

We wanted A hotel close to Termini station so we decided on this one. The hotel is in a sketchy part of town, although I didn't feel completely unsafe. The hotel is pretty small, with not many amenities. You will not find a fitness room, and the business center has one computer with a complicated sign in process and no... More

As everyone says this hotel is in a bad area. I'm going to elaborate on what that means. The shops around the hotel sell cheep nasty stuff. The kind of stuff that makes the one pound shop look really good. As a tourist you would never consider using any of the "restaurants", "cafes" or shops near the hotel. Being near... More

Traveler from NY and stayed here with my mother and sister in late September. I had read many of the reviews before hand and knew what to expect. The location was easy to get to from the train station and was definitely in a seedy area. The rooms were fairly basic although the beds must have been very comfortable as... 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.
