Entrance looks terrible and is the entrance to several hotels. Very odd. Room extremely small and we could not walk around the bed or even open the fridge completely. No heating on when we arrived at 2.30 and was to,d it would go on at 3. However room was never very warm when it was on. The next day when... More

Great place to stay in perfect location!!! Friendly staff and nothing to complain about! The rooms are clean and shower is a little bit small but surely part of the experience! Good breakfast and easy to find from Termini station! Thank you for the great stay!!

What a dump. Needs renovating. Nothing inviting about entrance to hotel. Old fashioned lift with filthy hall leading to foyer. The woman at reception was unfriendly and wouldn't let us in room a minute before 2 pm even though empty. Couldn't use the tv. Apparently you had to turn on from top but no one bothered to tell us.

The hotel was well-located within a few blocks of the main bus/train/subway station in Rome and yet still in a relatively quiet area. The hotel facilities were good but seemed to be unprofessionally administered. The young man working evenings was very courteous and helpful but most of the other staff were not very personable. When we checked in, we were... More

Yes after reading other reviews the rooms are small, but we were in Rome for sight seeing so just wanted somewhere to sleep. Yes the room (16) was on the main road and I didnt sleep well due to the continuous traffic noise but the next day bought ear plugs from the farmacia and slept like a log. There was... More

I stayed in this hotel recently and I can honestly say I wasn't impressed at all. I wasn't expecting the Trump Towers but this was definitely not what I'd call 3 star. The owners need to update it! I went from a room that overlooked an absolutely filthy courtyard to a room that overlooked the street. In the first room... 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.
