Tonight is our last night is this lovely little hotel, this was my first overseas trip, ( but I have stayed in many hotels in my home country Australia), I booked based on trip adviser and was not disappointed, the rooms are small but clean, the showers space is tight, I'm not big but if I dropped the soap it...

Good location for Termini Station and the Metro and only 15 minutes walk to the city centre. Decent enough breakfast with attentive staff and reasonable selection. Lift to the rooms only takes three people so can be a bit of a wait if you insist on using it when it's busy. Comfortable, clean rooms. Plenty of good eateries within walking... More

I located Hotel Sonya through Trip Advisor. I was attracted to the hotel because it was located near Termini rail station in Rome and because it had generally good reviews. I actually booked the hotel through Booking.com and that's where the trouble began. When I went to select the room option, I accidentally hit the wrong "button." I intended to... More

This hotel is clean, quaint, and a great location. The rooms have obviously been refurbished with modern, yet traditional decor, furniture, and nicely updated bathroom. It was also wonderful to be able to open our window shutters to the local sights and sounds and have a fresh air breeze at night. The hotel was very quiet except for the opera... More

The hotel is situated opposite the Opera house and it's quite near Termini central station. It's in walking distance to many of the tourist attractions. Many restaurants just outside the hotel. We got a room on 5th floor towards the court yard. There was no noise beside some noise from the corridor. Room and also the bathroom was nice and... More

My two friends and I stayed at Hotel Sonya for three nights in late March/early April. We had very high hopes and expectations for our stay, based on my research, the good reviews and certificate of excellence on Tripadvisor as well as the recommendation by Rick Steves in his books. We arrived around 3:30 p.m. at Hotel Sonya. As soon... More

New showers, sinks and vanity as well as new toilets. The daily breakfast was abundant with breads, pastry, cold cuts, cereal, yogurt., fresh fruit and eggs, The staff was... More

We stayed here two years ago for the rugby. We all agreed we wanted to return this year. There was 17 people in 9 rooms. Ages varied from 6yrs to 62yrs. Everyone had a great time with no complaints I found all the staff to be nothing but helpful. The breakfast wasn't fantastic but more than adequate. The rooms were... More

Stayed at Hotel Sonya last week with positive outcome. The hotel boast of its accessible location which is one of the reasons why we chose to spend the first leg of our Italian holiday. It was around 10-15 minutes walk to the Termini metro and about 20-25 minutes away by foot to the Colosseum. There were a few restaurants along... More

I booked the hotel based on other recommendations and it was a good choice. Although the room is basic, it was comfortable, good storage space, good wifi, tea and coffee making facility (although no milk, I'm sure if we'd asked we would have got some). The bathroom was amazing for a 3 star hotel, the shower was the best! Breakfast... 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.
