The room in which I stayed one night was quiet and clean. The hotel is conveniently located, in a walking distance from the railway station and close to many touristical sites. Decoration deserved to be refreshed. Breakfast was I would say normal, nothing exceptional but good enough. Staff was helpful. During the week end, prices are multiplied by7 compared to... More

Stayed 4 nights prior to our cruise. Pretty easy to get to from the Roma termini train station. Took approx 15 min. If you have just 1 rolling bag it's not bad, if you have more than 1bag per person, just take your time. Check in was easy. Room was fine but unfortunately our arrival day was unusually warm for...

Hotel Sonya was excellent in important ways, and above average in all the rest. The excellence came from the knowledgeable, informative, helpful, friendly staff. Another area of excellence was its outstanding breakfast, a buffet of healthy, down-to-earth, homemade foods that would set any tourist on the right path for an energetic day. The platters themselves included hearty vegetarian fare, cold... More

I made my reservation months in advance and emailed several times about the Rick Steves discount. I was assured that I was eligible for the discount. The emails I received said NOTHING about only paying in cash in order to receive the discount. When I checked out and wanted to pay with my American Express card, I was told I... More

We were greeted by a friendly staff member who helped with our luggage and took them to our rooms. As a group of 5 adults were happy that the hotel allowed us to gather in the "lobby" before and after dinner. The day staff was extremely helpful. Breakfast was large and the servers were very attentive. We stayed here for... More

The room was espacious, well appointed and clean. My only con is that the shower in my room was the size of a cruise stateroom shower, but no... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
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.
