We booked this hotel for 2 nights while in Rome. It is well located for visiting Rome but the hotel is old, tired and very busy. The first night we were put in a room that had 4 single beds crammed in and it was very hot and noisy. When booking we had asked for a quiet room. The air... More

Staff were not very friendly or helpful. No bar/drink service and they would not provide a kettle for the room to allow us to make our own tea/coffee! Breakfast wasn't the greatest! Rooms were clean and tidy.

Really nice hotel. We got a double storeyed room with 3 beds for 3 of us. Very near to the Metro station and Roma Termini making it extremely convenient to roam around Rome. Nearby Pizzerias are also great. The staff were super helpful and nice. Only downside(if any) is slow internet.

I decided to stay in Rome a few more days and the Bed and Breakfast I was in was going to be full so I had to move. I looked on Trip advisor and the Hotel Galles seemed to meet my requirements. I was staying in Trastevere, a fabulous area with little streets to get lost in and fun restaurants... More

We stayed here recently on a family trip and did not enjoy the hotel at all. It was cheap, and we booked it because we had originally planned to travel by train from the Termini Station, which is quite close. We should have known that you get what you pay for! We found the location to be poor--near the station,... More

We have been using the Galles & annexe hotel Prince of Wales for the past few years & have no reason to change. We visit Rome every year for 3 days. The buffet breakfast is good quality & the rooms are good.

This hotel is modest and serves well as a base of operation in Rome. Just a few blocks from Roma Termini Station and one block from a Metro stop. There are lots of restaurants in the area adding to the convenience of the location. The rooms are small by US standards but plenty big for a stay of a week... More

The hotel is in good location, close to train station and maybe 25-30 mins walk to Colosseum. Rooms were clean amd comfortable, but shower drain was slow. The duplex layout is nice, but interior colors are dark. It has fridge and safe box. Breakfast was good. We lived in the back of the hotel, the carpet on the staircase needs... More

Rooms are clean & good size. Breakfast is poor. Although its near the termini station if u want to go for sightseeing it's quite far to get by walk. The place is quiet & a bit scary to get late at night alone. Easily can be found hotel in the historic center for the same price.

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.
