Conveniently located just next to the Rome train terminal, the location can't be better! Plenty of eating out and shopping options across the street. We were pleasantly surprised to find a lot of Indian and Bangladeshi restaurants nearby, after days of gorging on pizzas! The hop-in and hop-off bus points are also close by if you want to take the... More

The hotel was perfect. It was clean and the room was really nice. The beds are comfy and the room we had one the 5th floor was big and well equipped. For those looking to see Rome in reasonable comfort and be within walking distance of almost everything but not break the bank its a good choice. The whole of... More

A great middleclass hotel with very nice and helpful staff. Nice and cental location, close to the Termini station from where you can go by train or metro. Breakfast was alright. I will have this hotel in mind the next time I plan to go to Rome.

Rated as a 3 star hotel but I’ve stayed in different hotels in this location for 15 years and this is the best by far. Clean and presentable with modern updated rooms and reasonable speed (free) wifi thought. Staff were very helpful and polite. Breakfast was the usual continental you’d expect in Europe but the pastries, cheeses and meats were... More

My husband and I stayed 4 nights (EUR49pn), and we chose it to be close to Termini station as we were arriving and departing by train. It is only a couple of blocks and although there are some touts on the street it wasn't bad. Check-in was easy and then you take your bags up in the small elevator which... More

Check in was efficient and we were immediately handed a useful... 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.
