My husband booked this hotel. I read the reviews later and was worried about staying here. On arrival the hotel was cool (it was v hot outside) and the receptionist reasonably friendly. We have had no problems with our room which is clean, cool and comfortable. We paid about 40 pounds a night so feel that we have got good... More

I honestly don't even know where to begin. First of all, the staff is awful, they don't have either training nor the ability to understand what you're saying regardless the language spoken. Utter and total incompetence of all of them. They are rude, unhelpful and appear to be angry all the time for no apparent reason. The room is a... More

By far the worse hotel for me. Id give this hotel -100 if i could. Lets start with the fact that you have to lock yourself into your own room with the key (which is actually a HUGE fire hazard) Our room had a safe, that lookd like it came from a 25cent vending machine and didnt even work.. i...

After reading previous rewiews of this hotel I was dreading my stay here, but how mistaken I was, the hotel is basic however our room was clean, it was cleaned daily, the towels are thin as suggested in previous reviews but they do the job, breakfast could be better it consisted of fresh bread rolls, pastries, cereal which set us...

We recently spent a week away in Rome, choosing a more budget hotel so having the opportunity to have more spending money in the city. This is what the hotel is: budget, with the bulk of your money being spent on location, as opposed to amenities. It is located approximately 25mins from the Colosseum, a reasonable distance to walk there... More

We walked in the room and it felt like it was an oven. SO HOT. We complained, and they said "the day was hot". The air conditioner is REALLY bad, it is never cold, and they TURN OFF between 7am and 2pm like what????? i was forced to wake up early because of that. So ridiculous! The tv screen is... More

I recently stayed here with a group of college students and would never return. Although our students were well behaved, there were students from other places that seemed to stay up all night running up and down corridors, banging on doors, shouting and generally keeping everyone awake. It did not seem to bother the hotel staff as all school trip... More

Upon first walking in to this hotel you are struck with an eerie feeling. We should've turned back immediately. There is no computer at the front desk. Once you are given your key you walk down a dark, dirty hallway that reeks of urine. The whole hotel smells like a dirty bathroom. You walk in to a bare room with... More

Beds were good, room clean and cleaned daily, most staff friendly speaking some English. Many trams passing in the 2 squares in front of hotel. Breakfast was not good, most sweetened bread and some hard white bread with ham and cheese. No fruits or juices

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.
