This is our second stay at Hotel Sonya. The first was with our children and this time was with friends. Both stays were great - clean rooms and great service. The location is perfect. It's an easy walk from the train station. I would stay here again.

Room was small but comfortable, and the staff was polite and helpful. Was within walking distance from lots of attractions, restaurants, and shopping, which was a huge plus for us. Didn't bother us too much so we didn't bring it up with the staff, but the cleaning staff clearly ignored our "do not disturb" signs on the door multiple times.... More

We reserved Hotel Sonya but when we got there we were told we were in the "new section" and we were walked a half block down the street to the Hotel Opera instead. We were very disappointed to see the condition of the room and the strong smell of cigarette smoke, in a non smoking building. We requested another room... More

I did not get to stay at the Hotel Sonya because when we arrived to check in the room reserved for us had a broken toilet. The management had already booked us into another hotel and paid our cab fare. Heads up work by the staff.

We really enjoyed staying at Hotel Sonya and the staff. The location was great and made it easy to walk to most of the sites and transit. The breakfast was simple but it was nice to have some cereal and coffee before heading out for the day. The staff remembered us after the 1st morning and knew what to bring... More

I do not understand what everyone is raving about but then again I never got the opportunity to stay here. All I can go by is first impressions and it was TERRIBLE! We showed up after 3 pm and were told our room was not ready yet even though check-in was at 2. The guy at the front desk was... More

I booked this hotel for one night on sunday, and then for another night on thursday. The stay on Sunday night was fantastic. The room is modern and great, bed is comfortable, pillows are soft, and breakfast was ample. The location is fantastic. We were looking forward to staying the night again on thursday. Sadly, they gave away our room... More

This hotel, located in a 160 year old building - close enough to Termini train station in Rome, and the Republica Metro stations - is a great place to stay. A welcoming staff and a clean environment are the first sights to greet you, before you are escorted to your adequate room. The room itself is not huge, by North... More

Hotel Sonya was in a very good location for getting around Rome with out a car. It is walking distance to the main train station. You can walk to all the historical sites except for the Vatican and that was easy to get to also because the hotel is also located walking distance to the metro train. The hotel is... 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.
