I stayed at this hotel for one night and I am happy that it just was one night. The room was not very clean, beds were average, the drains and room smelled of sewer and the breakfast was poor. The highlight of this hotel is that it is approximately 5 minutes by foot from Rome Termini (Central Train Station). The... More

Location, location, location. This is a very small hotel in US standards, but located just two blocks from the Rome's main train station, TERMINI and the metro makes it very convenient. Most attractions are at walking distance. Furthest from this hotel is the Vatican city which is only a 15 min Metro ride. Rooms are small, but clean and comfortable.... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was not worth mentioning. ..let's just say the best part of the breakfast was the espresso machine. The value overall was decent. The outside restaurant was not that good, but the one across the street was fabulous! Very conveniently located near the main train station that comes direct from the airport. About... More

Dear Danny, thank you very much for your review and for the 4 stars rating you gave us. We are sorry that you didn't like our free breakfast: since we renovated the breakfast room and the choice of food, almost the 100% of our guest love it, so we are wondering what went wrong for you. Anyway, we are glad... More

We spent a couple of night there with my girlfriend on our trip to Rome. We were amazed about the location of the hotel, especially compared to the price. The room was clean, and the staff was exceptionally nice. The breakfast was OK as well.

I've stayed at this hotel during a business trip to Rome and I found it to be perfectly located. The room was very clean and noise proof. The breakfast was rather simple but that's not an issue from my point of view. Coffee was good. :) Highly recommended!

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Our room was clean and tidy, shower worked fine. Soaps, shampoos, towels, linen - all was changed daily. There is a small fridge in the room, and enough hangers in the wardrobe. The breakfast is nice - hot scrambled eggs, sausages, selection of cheese and meats, pastry, and there's a small sandwich...

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.
