We chose this hotel because it was close to the train station and tourist sightseeing bus stop, the price was very cheap and had a buffet breakfast included! The building is quite old, but has a lot of character, including an old caged elevator! Staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the bed and pillows were... More

The hotel is in a very good location, which is the only good thing. Staff is polite but rooms are very poor and old. We stayed there for one night only and they had problems with the boiler. So we couldn't take any hot, or warm, shower either the evening, night or morning after...

After the bad reviews that we have seen here it was a very a reasonable choice and a good experience. Nice and tidy room with great view from the 5th floor balcony for a fair price. We got cleaning, fresh towels and soaps every morning. The room's condition is not like in a new built hotel but it is absolutely... More

Very close to main station and amenities. Hotel reached via stairs or tiny lift, once you are able to get into the building. Took a while for them to answer intercom. Once inside we were asked if we would like a drink prior to checking in. Room adequate for needs and exactly as pictured on website. Breakfast room very small... More

Good breakfast, but rooms are close to the front lobby where people talk. But it was a cheap place to stay. Little hard to find, and it is near some really shady people at the train station so be careful. When you walk through the giant doors you feel like you are in some old abandoned house, then you must... More

We stayed for one night in july. Room stunk of smoke but this wasn't clear until the smell of washing detergent had set. Blood on the wall. Handle for the bathroom broken. An overall dirty feeling and I was surprised that I didn't see a cockroach. The room I stayed in wasn't as fresh as the pictures suggested. The only... More

I stayed at this hotel in June 2014, and the room I was given had bed bugs crawling on the walls. I went to the front desk to inquire about a different room, but no one was there to help me. It was a terrible experience, and I would never wish it on anyone else. I hope this review informs... More

The location is awful, in a very unsafe part of Rome which is horrible after dark. We arrived at 10pm to find our room had been double booked and the man on reception was unable to explain what was going on. After 20 minutes someone else arrived and told us that we would just have to find somewhere else and... More

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.
