The hotel is located really close to the Termini station and Santa Maria Maggiore and within 10-15 minutes walking from Colosseum. Being close to Termini station gives you a great variety of transportation options (some of which: bus 64 to Piazza Navona and Vatican-St Peter, bus H to Trastevere all from the Termini Bus stations, Metro A line to Spagna)....

Alarm bells were ringing even before we left the UK as I had emailed this hotel twice to request a room on a high floor away from street noise but they did not even reply, this despite our stay being for 14 nights.. On arrival at reception the first thing I mentioned was my emails and the clerk made no... More

Hotel was in a perfect location. 15-20 minute walk to the coliseum and the roman forum. 45 minute walk to the Trevi fountain, which was closed for renovations. Lots of great restaurants and cafes right outside the hotel. staff was very helpful. Breakfast was good. Would definitely stay there again.

Pros: Location, breakfast, free Wi-Fi, safe in room for storing tablet (not big enough for PC). Room size is large in European standards. Lots of places to eat around the area. Cons: Staff used the reverse side of copies of past guests' passports for scratch papers, potential to compromise private information. When confronted, staff admitted that they shouldn't do so...

This is an extremely weel located hotel (walking distance from Termini Station, however far enough to avoid the inconvenients of the area), the staff was always very helpful, the rooms are very nice, and the breakfast was also good. It was an extremely pleasant stay during the 10 days we spent in Rome

Decent hotel for a nights sleep, clean although could do with a lick of paint in places, strange shower arrangement although it works. Friendly staff. Good restaurants nearby for evening dinner. Breakfast is plentiful and is buffet arrangement served in the cellar.

Great location right next to the train station, the rooms was modern, clean and pretty spacious, good location to the main bits of Rome and a pretty decent breakfast, i think the price for the room was good for what you got and compared to the rest of Rome prices.

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.
