Three hotels in one building is strange but not the issue. And the friendly staff is a positive characteristic. But that's all there is on the positive side. The elevator is small, with not automatic closing door. It looks funny, but it isn't when you're in a hurry on the 6th floor. The rooms ar small, with poor facilities. The... More

What a hotel ! Words to describe this place would be: dirty, horrible breakfast and just creepy! Yeah, I get it : You get what you pay for...But that is still no excuse for such a dirty hotel, I am sorry... The staff was friendly, that was the only good part with this hotel. I definitely don`t recommend this hotel,... More

The hotel is a Chinese run hotel when we were at breakfast everything was Chinese related. If a Chinese guest walked in they would offer an egg. I asked if I may have one and they replied no only for Chinese. This is so rude! When I enter my room it is dirty, dusty, the beds are broken. There is... More

We picked the hotel for it's cheap price and good location. It is a Chinese run hotel with the sign on the outside the building in Mandarin as well as English. Our room was tiny (that's okay), but smelled a little moldy and was very dark. The AC didn't work well at all so the next morning we asked if... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Repubblica for five days this week. I was quite worried about our stay after reading the previous reviews on this site, however I was pleasantly surprised. It is in an excellent location, walking distance to all major attractions other than the vatican city, which you could walk if you felt up to it.... More

First time I reviewed a hotel really, really worse than a hostel. I've never been really so particular about the room amenities but this is something that travelers should be warned about especially if they will be paying a hefty amount of money. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw behind the room door that their daily rate was... More

The real question is how well you can sleep on a slab of granite in a room smelling of stale cigarettes. A can of Oust from the grocery down the street made a huge difference. Nothing short of a bonfire is going to help that bed. Your mini-fridge hasn't worked in a decade. The staff is distant but not unkind.... More

Hotel was in a great spot close to the train station and bus stops. Not far from the trevi fountain. Staff not too friendly and the wifi didn't work ever. Breakfast is basic. Rooms were a bit small but that was typical in Italy. Room was clean.

The building where the hotel is located is too old, and doesn't have any restoration to make it more modern. The rooms are average, if you only need one night to sleep this could be the place. Breakfast: continental breakfast, don't make expectations with it. The staff is not friendly at all. What I think of this place: is in... More

All what are mentioned in their website are just nonsense. I had the misfortune to stay their over night as one agent in Venice Railway Station (Santa Lucia) made online booking for me and cheated me. My room was the size of a small balcony. Even worse was the bathroom. I could hardly go inside the shower cubicle as it... 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.
