The hotel is perfect if you are looking for a good value but nor for romance or atmosphere. It is clean, has a friendly staff, and located well. My only real issues were a lack of English programing on the television and no shelves or hooks in the bathroom.

This is a really nice place just off the street. Very easy to get to. They were very helpful in getting our transfers for us from the airport and cruise terminal. Definitely will stay here again. Beds were a little uncomfortable though

We stayed on 4/5/6th May in a Comfort Double Room which booked on the Hotel Selene website for a better deal. It's a nice hotel in a good location with pleasant and helpful staff. English language skills of all staff are very good. In particular we commend the young girl who assisted at breakfast for being particularly helpful.

We stayed at the Hotel Selene for 3 nights during our trip to Rome. Got upgraded for free, and had a very nice and super clean room.

We chose the Selene for its closeness to Termini transport connections and its reasonable price. We arrived at night but it was still easy to find only a 5-10 min walk from Termini and one block from the Opera House. It is a good location for transport links, close enough to walk to attractions and with nearby bars and restaurants... 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.
