I stayed in the Annex of the Hotel Sonya and found it to be clean, quiet, and quite comfortable; the ongoing construction presented no problems. I was a single staying in a double room, so found the size of the room to be more than adequate. The location is excellent; even though the train station is only a 5-7 minute... More

As has been experienced by others we were placed in the Annex around the corner. As this Annex is still undergoing construction there was some noise but not enough to keep us up or to become annoying. While some outside doors were left open during construction there was adequate electronic card security in accessing the hotel area on the second... More

We stayed at Hotel Sonya for 3 nights last month. They had everything we needed to be comfortable. It is very convenient; we walked to the coliseum, the train station, and Trevi fountain and the Spanish steps. The breakfast was good - we had fruit, yogurt, pastries, and the best hot chocolate. They even put a smile face on the... More

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Sonya in May for two nights and found it to be a perfect blend of budget, location, and comfort. The hotel is about a 5-10 minute walk from the train station and its pretty easy to find. It is within easy walking distance of all the sights, with the exception of the Vatican.... More

I was extremely impressed with Hotel Sonya. We stayed there 3 nights in October of 2006. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They provided complementary internet access on two computers located in there front lobby. Breakfast was included with the room price. They provided a great assortment of fruit, crackers, croissants and of course a delicious cappuccino. Our room... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Hotel Sonya for five nights in March of 2007. It was really nice and affordable too. I just graduated from college and wanted to travel abroad before I started looking for a job and we decided on Rome. Hotel Sonya was recommended in the Rick Steves book that I got from the library.... More

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in Hotel Sonya. We were put in one of the rooms down the street. Like previous reviews, the room was small but newly remodeled. VERY clean and modern. Breakfast here was one of the best we had during our Italy travel. We took the Metro instead of taxi's which worked out great. Did... More

Hotel Sonya is a great hotel. The staff is extremely kind, the location is good (near the train) and the breakfasts are great. The rooms are quite small (but you are only there to sleep - so no worries). The price is good for Rome.

Though I've stayed in the Termini area before, reading recent hotel reviews caused concern about what I'd find upon arrival. I booked 3 nights at Hotel Sonya for my arrival, as Trip Advisor reviews were positive and price was reasonable for Rome. The Termini area is safe. For obvious reasons my priorities for lodging are clean room, clean bathroom, and... More

Basic housing in a convenient location. For a US traveler, the initial impression of the area/hotel might seem a bit dicey. The elevators are the old open cage style. After registration we were surprised to be led a block away to another building to our room. But upon arrival in the room area everything was just fine. As with most... 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.
