First of all there is no free parking. Dont book this hotel if you go by car. I can't say good things about the staff. They don't help the costumers. Just location is good. Nothing more. No quality. And be careful around the hotel, it's not safe !!!

Dear, you probably don't even imagine how heavy for us is to receive a one star vote when we work so hard to get better. And it becomes even heavier when it is completely unjustified, like your one. You was so disappointed about the free parking when is written nowhere that we have one: not on our website, not on... More

The location of this hotel is just perfect. With a short 15-20 minute walk we were at the Colloseum and Forum Romanum, and there are lots of good restaurants nearby as well. It's easy to reach by getting to Termini station from the airport, and from there it's a 5 min walk. The staff is very helpful and friendly too.... More

Very close to the station, only about 2 minutes working, conveniently. Very nice staff! Nice room, clean and neat. Good for family with little children. The breakfast is nice. Worth the money if it's on sale.

We stayed on the 4th floor and the room was spacious and very little noise from outside. Free Wi Fi available throughout hotel. With the good exchange rate between £/€ it was value... More

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

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.
